Spiderman........be careful !!!

Hi,

Anybody ordering Spiderman, please be careful.

It may not play on a remote hackable player. I had my machine set to region free, and when i inserted the disc, i was presented with a 'regional map'. Fortunately my machine is 'chipped' and not 'hacked' and i can manually set the region code, and it works fine :D


Cheers

RCE has struck again. Have you tried R1 The Patriot or Charlies Angels? They wer the only other confirmed RCE discs that I have actually seen lock a player out. I'm gonna wait for the R2 just to be on the safe side....

Anyone tried it on the Tosh 220 Multiregion from Richer sounds yet?

If not, I'll post back in a couple of days when I get my R1 copy, with hopefully good news.

Works ok on mine, it's a Sony ns-900. I don't know what mod chip is in it because it's an insurance replacement.

At least I know it plays RCE now though :)

Yep, it works on MR Tosh 220 from Richer sounds.

:)

Shame on me for not entirely trusting them when they said it definitely plays RCE.....

I tried to watch Spiderman on my Tosh 210 modded for region free and RCE and it didn't play, got the map pic. Thought to myself, well ive played RCE discs before, so i checked which disks were supposed to be RCE, got out black hawk down and it played fine, put in Spiderman again and it worked, now just seen mysteriousjimmys list of 'RCE disks that are not RCE' and BHD is there, was it just coincidence that Spiderman played after BHD or is there two levels of RCE or something??

completely off topic but just read the figures and Spiderman sold 11million copies on DVD and VHS in the first three days of release in the US!!!! Making a $190m, this is more than the film did at the box office opening weekend ($148m in three days).:eek: :eek:

I put the Spiderman disc in on Monday when it arrived and it played OK but last night I tried to play it and got the RCE map.
I pulled the plug out of the wall left it for a couple of minutes and then when I plugged it in again it played OK.
I have a multiregion Pioneer 737 and I have never had a problem with RCE before.

If you are in any doubt about getting the region 1 copy
because of the RCE, then why don't you go for the region 4?
I recieved mine from www.ezydvd.com.au on Saturday and
it only took 4 days to deliver. Also, it only cost me a total of
£14.60!
By the way, the specs are the same.

My R1 copy plays fine on my Toshiba sd-510, but when I tried it in my Sony dvp-335 with rce multi mod by techtronics it displayed the region map, here's a strange one, I then tried Babylon 5 r1 the gathering which is RCE and it played that fine, so i wonder if there is two levels of RCE. I have emailed Techtronics to see if it is possible to select r1 manually.

Techtronics have just replied to a fix for my problem, they sent me the manual setting for regions and it played Spiderman with no problems :D

I think you may find that Babylon 5 is not RCE...

When you put in another R1 that doesn't have RCE, that sets the region of the player to R1. So when you put in the RCE disk it'll play fine as the player is now R1. This depends on what kind of MOD you have. I have an old Pioneer from techtronics and I use this method.

According to play B5 is RCE, maybe they are wrong.

I have a 'chipped' Toshiba SD-3109. The instructions that came with the chip included a handset hack for RCE which I'd never used as I have never before purchased an RCE title.

My R1 Spiderman arrived today, so for the first time ever, I have seen an RCE screen displayed. I dug out the 'hack' .... & it works.
That's a relief then:)
