Re: mission

It could be one of many problems.
1. Are you using a cheat device, Gameshark Codebreaker, Action Replay, ect?
If so, the problem is a faulty cheat code.
Go through the code list and shut off/delete any weapon modifier codes.
That should solve that problem.

2. Is the disk dirty, smudged,fingerprints on it, scratched?
If dirty, smudged,fingerprints.
Rinse the disk in mildly warm water (roughly room temperature) and wipe thoroughly with a non-abrasive cloth (like you'd use to clean eye glasses).
If scratched, three words for you "Dawn Dish Liquid" follow the previous steps but prior to rinsing add about 2 table spoons of Dawn Dish Liquid to the surface of the disk and rub it in with a non-abrasive cloth.
You can use cheaper dish soap but for best results you should use Dawn.
I don't know why it works, I just know it works.

3. Is the laser in your PS2 dirty?
Even if it isn't it is a good idea to run a dvd cleaner through it after about every 10 or so hours of use.

My ps2 will load games, but freezes-up when loading the mission. screen stays blank.

First try using a DVD lens cleaner on the unit and check the game disks for imperfections. If scratches use a scratch fix kit. If the problem still happens even with a new game then your DVD drive needs to be replaced or just buy a refurbished or new PS2. They are cheap now so why not get a new one. Good luck

Can i play xbox game on ps2

No, and No. You will NEVER see a PS3 emulator for PS2 that would be impossible. Someday you may(very very very highly debatable) see an xbox emulator for PS2 but that is also highly unlikely. Nothing for either exists on the internet as an emulator for PS2.
