ah, this happened to me, u need to change the sysconf file or something, only thing is
that it doesn't guarantee a stable game, it still crashes for me at random places

kinda like Wii Sports Resort, however, that issue is APPARANTLY because the latest
revisions removed the Optimiize Quantizers option which, if disabled, will make the two
games work :S

"Red still 2" work, it's red still 1 the only that has the freeze, and i don't know
what you want me to change in the sysvonf, but this is still an issue since it does
not work properly on the emulator :S

Red Steel has the ES_LAUNCH problem (same as the Wii Menu). Check issue 661 for updates.

Im re opening this Issue as now the game boots (with some errors) but the game gets stuck at the begining... for another different reason :S
I think that the game could possibly work with LLE sound because this very same thing happened with RE Darkside Chronicles Before the fix. (but i can't test it)

here is a video of what happens (with the error messages on screen, except for when it gets stuck because there is no message shown when that happens)

Here is a video to compare (this is how it should work)

Ok using a save i downloaded as a .bin and importing it to the emulator i noticed another issue

the savefile i dowenloaded is set on an advance place of the game, so i tried to test if the game gets stuck in another place as in the begining
But right from the start I noticed that you cannot move or do any actions (besides looking around) at all
you can't fire, you can't draw your sword, you cannot walk... you can't do a single thing but look.
also there is a complete abscense of sound
