The nerve of it!
Anyway, I just found another copy. Fortunately they're cheap used.
Good that you go it to work (in a round-a-bout defeatist way
)! Now was it worth all the effort?
BTW, the bold part I added to your quote above only works in a *modded* PS2; you cannot simply copy a PS2 disc and have it work in an unmodified PS2 or without running one of the many tricks around for doing so.
