Graphic glitches playing NTSC games help!
Hi there, I was just wondering if anybody else has experienced or knows anything about this problem I've been having. I have a PAL v14 slimline PS2 with a Matrix Infinity chip, standard AV cable connectionm, my console has the latest firmware installed and runs absolutely fine.
However I have noticed that whenever run NTSC games, I encounter a few small but annoying glitches with the graphics. Playing Tales of the Abyss in particular these glitches are very noticable. I will try and explain the best I can without screenshots.
1. The game runs fine - more or less full screen and full colour - but on both vertical edges of the screen, the actual edges are not completely straight and they constantly warp and move as I play the game! Also, there is loss of sharpness and brightness of colour in the outer edges of the screen.
2 .The dialogue boxes in particular cause a similar but more annoying glitch - for example when it changes from one person talking to another person talking, or when one dialogue box closes and another one opens, the same thing happens. It also causes a warp in a horizontal line where the box occupies on screen. By warping I mean, moving edges and the colour, brightness fluctuating. It is only in these instances that I get these glitches, and only for a second or two at a time, but especially with the text boxes it is very noticable and annoying!!
I'm not sure if it is actually to do with my console, or my TV, or my connection, but I have tried it on two Sony TVs and expericence the same problems, I will be getting a copy of Final Fantasy XII soon so I will see if the same thing happens with that. Has anybody else had this problem?
