PAL CD-R + Modded PS2 + NTSC CRT TV = madness

Postby madbuzzin » Sun Oct 22, 2017 3:35 pm

I want to play some pal games on my ntsc tube tv but since they run at 50hz the screen flickers and the game is unplayable. My question is, is it IMPOSSIBLE to play a 50hz PAL game I.e. (LEGO racers on psx) on a ntsc 60hz tube tv? I am just using the standard component cables the ps2 uses

It's the cable you are using.
You need a RGB, Component or HDMI cable.
(or a NTSC-patch or code for your game)

In europe your NTSC games would only be in black & white, that's why you always had to upgrade to a RGB cable to get color + an in every way better signal.

Hmm i’ll Get the patcher, I didn’t think that would work because all I thought it did was change the region of the game... not how the game is actually plays (speed it is read)

50/60Hz swap patch works on some games. However, if the game uses Multiple Hz checks, you'll end up back in native Hz rate after boot n play. Capcom Classic etc...)

If you use OPL 0.9.x you might have more luck with OPL GSM. Click PS2-Home Link in Sig for more details

Good info, i’ll Look into that, just patch street golf using a patcher pal>ntsc works perfectly. I’ll use the program I mentioned on games that don’t patch correctly with what I currently have.

No worries. What sort of setup you got ?

Phat PS2?
Phat PS2 + Network Adapter ?
Phat PS2 + network Adapter + IDE HDD ?
Slim ?
Slim + USB HDD ?

FreeMCBoot or chip for exploit?

The PS2 , especially the Phat, you can mod the fek out of. I have a SATA 2TB HDD in my 3200x
No chip, just FreeMCBoot Memory Card Exploit. Bully/Canim Canis Edit, loads in less than a minute (Skipping intro)
HDD is the way to go ! Never burn a "Coaster" again !
