Sorry for the late reply/ I've been on vacation.
Forcing is something I do every time I boot a game. It's just this game that isn't working. First time I tried a ciso file too. Still no luck with above suggestion.

Well, I did suggest you make sure the cISO file is a good one by checking the ISO file using whatever means you normally use. Did you confirm your download copy is a good one?
Last thing then is to play with more than the force setting. A lot of trial and error is involved when playing out-of-region games. Try different combinations of Force Video, Patch Video and VIDTV. Sometimes an out-of-region game just can’t be played; one sign of that is a green screen freeze. If it just won't work, look for a normal ISO version and preferably a version within your region. Good Luck with your game.
