Question about Ubi Soft Entertainment Grandia II for Dreamcast
I just got to the fissure with the floating eyeballs in the Area Dream story. Every time I fight something in the cave, the game hangs after I win the battle. After the points are awarded, the screen fades to black as it usually does before fading back into the gameplay, but it just stays black. Has anyone experienced this glitch? Is there anything I can do?
Seeing as the game hangs after the sequence and not after doing a specific thing then I would call it a reading error rather than a glitch.
All I can say is to check your discs for deep scratchs and smudges and to give the game disc a good cleaning.
Disc based game media commonly has this problem of hanging in very random areas and sometimes even odd artifacts, though that is usually rare.
Also some game shops have disc rebuffering services and can be worth it despite the cost.
Also a chance the Dreamcast's laser is malfunctioning, check other games for simular problems that are known for running fine.
This problem is usually rare with good care however and shouldn't be the case.
I suggest cleaning and possibly getting the disc rebuffered if all else fails as this appears to be a common disc reading error.

My Best guess on a solution would be to disassemble the Dream cast and clean up any dust and lint that haas built up inside the unit. This is about the main thing that knocks the power out in the fashion you describe.
If your not confortable with doing that, My shop called the Playstation Clinic works on Dream casts. Contact us through my website www.playstationclinic.com
Best of luck and I do think you will have the dreamcast back up with a good cleaning.
