I use the latest HDA provided here without any modes on (the 0.8a with GOW2 fix) and run the untouched DL ISO transfer from pc to HDD. I can get to opening scene, then when Kratos shrink to small man, it went blank and freeze. Next time I tried setting to "widescreen" (because I remember someone saying that matters), then I can get pass that point. I start playing to the first save point, when I press save, it hangs in the save screen (for very very long, like .5 hr). I tried it with both widescreen or normal mode, still no go. Anyone know how to get pass that?
