Okay, I finally broke down and bought SYM. (I know I'm behind the times, but I'm used to that.) The game is great, but ...

Any time I try to save a game and then restore it, things get weird. Words disappear, the "start a season" page will only display Al Snow's picture, and while the ring background looks fine, instead of wrestlers in it all I see is a bunch of gray squiggles that look remarkably like Babylon 5's Shadows more than anything else. I have to delete the saved game and restart to get it to play properly again.

I figured I might have gotten a bad copy of the game (especially because I bought it used), so I went back to the store and had it replaced. But lo and behold, the same thing happened. The problem might be with the memory card, but it works just fine for my other games. There's nothing on THQ's site about bugs like this.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions?

The only Save error I've heard of was if you assign Jerry Lynn's Moveset (#34) to someone and save it.

Im thinking your memory card went PFFFT!!

The only problem I've had is with the controllers. Sometimes during a match. The game will pause itself to tell me that a controller is unplugged, when it isnt. After a few seconds it will dissapear and the game will resume as normal. I thought maybe it was My Controller wire UNTIL It started doing it and saying controller port 2 was unplugged during single player games and with no controller in port 2 to begin with. Now that is FUCKED! And pretty fucking annoying.

The following post expresses the opinions of a raving Jerichoholic. He is biased, opinionated and bitter. You have been warned.

I think it could be a problem with the memory card, or you might have gotten a second crappy game...or your PS2's screwed. You might want to make sure that the laser-thingy is clear of dust, etc. before jumping to expensive conclusions.

I borrowed a different brand memory card, and it worked fine, so I guess the game just didn't like my card.

Another question, if I may: how the hell do I tag out? I know the game says to use R1, but it seems like if I walk to my partner and hit R1, either a) nothing happens or b) I go through the ropes by accident. It's infuriating having my partner sitting on the apron with all five specials lit while I'm getting my butt kicked trying to bring him in ...

you have to hold down a direction button while pressing R1 to tag. I remember when I couldn't do that, I got pissed since my guy would instead climb to the top rope or take off the turnbuckle instead of tagging out. heh.

I had the same thing happen to me. I fixed it by pausing the game and going to vibration and turned all of them off. Try that and hopefully it will work.

Ya know how people say you'll go blind by "doing it" too much? Screw that, I think I went deaf!

I was in K-mart the other day trying to pick up Namco musuem for $13 for GBA when I noticed a combo deal on the rack... They had Metroid bundled with a wavebird for sale. I asked the guy how much it was but he didn't know.
