thanks tips
:p


these are for previews. If you like the game, you'd most definitely purchase the product and support the programmers.

Ok, sorry for a dumb question, but how exactly do you rip ps2 games? Seriously, can you do it with a normal cdr, or do you need a special hardware or what not.

you can record most ps2 games just like any other cd. The dvd ones can be choped onto a few cds or have useless videos deleted inorder to fit on one cd. (except metal gear solid and final fantasy x)

all you need is a mod chip in order to play'em.

i dont get how such a modchip would work...

what if a data file storing some important data(not video and sound) maybe, a monster's polygon data or something, wont fit on the first cd..
then the game running in memory would try and access this data and find its not there...and crash because its not coded to handle that...

unless you can't copy games that have that more than one CD worth of crucial data..

or the modchip is extremely complex and detects such errors, preempts the game process, takes over using some modchip bios process to ask you to insert a disc containg the extra data.. and then the chip passes control back to the game...(rather than one that just overrides playstation copy protection)

So um yeah....how does one go about getting a mod chip??

I recall something about having to get someone with experience in electronics to put it in...

If this is the case....where do you go to get something like this done?

Is there any chance that it could wreck your PS2? I know it will nullify the guarantee so I don't want anything to happen to it while it's being done!!

PM me if you don't wanna display it for the whole world to see LOL

Thanks

;)echo<----could deal with having a nice library of PS2 games like dj velocity's!!

I'm using the neo-mod chip. Its the easiest one to install (only one wire) and connects externally to the usb port.

The chip allows you to bypass sonys boot protection and runs for about $40-80.

search for ps2 mod chips and you'll find tons of places selling them.

there are multiple modchips out there
some better than others

for example, i'm using the neo 2.5
i got it a while ago...it uses 8 wires and requires a gameshark to swap...furthermore, the dvd rom swap is complicated

on the other hand, the neo 4.0 uses 44 wires
so i don't recommend you try to install that unless you have a lot of patience and are really good with wiring (especially since it requires you to cut up parts of your board)...but the benefit of this mod is that it direct boots cd rom games, and has a easier swap for dvd rom games

there's also a neo 4.1 with clip that uses 11 wires (same capabilities as above)

and the messiah, which direct boots everything

whichever chip you get, make sure you have a ps2 version compatible with that chip...certain chips function with certain versions

for example, the messiah works with only v.4 or higher

on another note, to swap a dvd rom game...you need an actual real dvd game...preferably dead or alive 2 because of its size...it works best

on a cautionary note, i've heard people complain that using the mod chip wears down your laser faster...at least that's the case with newer ps2 versions

for more information check www.lik-sang.com and www.ps2ownz.com

or you can just go to an asian mall such as pacific mall and look for a videogame store..the last time i checked they were modding a system with a neo4 for 300 (this was in september)...

that is kind of pricey considering the chip itself cost a bit under a hundred...

in any case, get them while you can..sony did a major crack down on a lot of the major vendors a few months back...they might decide to do it again..and the prices might go up as a result

a little extra info

you can only rip cd-rom games...it does not req. any special hardware

dvd rom games can be found ripped and made to fit into cdr's by different groups on the internet

full dvd rom games with nothing taken out can also be found over the net...but that would require you to have a dvd burner to burn the game and in any case, who wants to download a 5 gig game?...the alternative is to buy dvd rom games (usually 30 dollars) over the net or at some asian videogame store

typically, you have to use cdrwin to burn downloaded ps2 games...otherwise it won't work

certain games downloaded require patches in order for it to work or work better (ea games and pal games)

in any case, all of this work is worth it...you get to play a lot of games before it comes out..=))

Sorry to hyjack..

Does anyone know if the Ps2 CD player have a visual display (waves, purrty colors etc etc.) like the PsX?

If so, how does one go about activating it? (The PsX had some silly button combo to enter before it became available)

hello... this thread is back.

i have a few questions.

now 'out there' i've managed to find a few games.. only curiously enough, these games are going MORE than 700megs in size (err.. like the BIN file i mean)

which i find odd, because i know not of any cd-r's that have a higher storage than 700 megs.

i heard you can overburn by a few megs... but im attempting (as we speak to burn an 800meg bin unto a 700meg cd-r

we'll see if that works.

I've found other games that are a mere 56megs (pacman3d whatever) so what's up?

velocity, please icq me, i've sent you a message... or email me at kifebuyshisweed@hotmail.com if you get a moment. :)
