In order to play online you need two things:
First the game region must match your console so if you have a PAL console you can only play PAL games online and if you have an NTSC console you can only play NTSC games online.
Next the backup needs to be DNAS patched. I won't go into detail on how to do that here but it's a pretty simple process and a quick google search should find you plenty of guides on how to do it.
So long as your games meet these two requirements you should be able to play them online with no trouble
IS there no way,to bypass the pal/ntsc restriction?Cause i own a pal console but half my games are ntsc and half are pal.Can i only play pal like it or not?
if there is a way i have not found it yet.
most of my games are NTSC and I have a PAL console so I can't play most online
Will an ntsc2pal conversion do any good?And then patch dnas?
no a NTSC2Pal fix wont work. The only consoles where you can play other region games online are v8 and below as you can change the machine ID
Thanx for the info.
How caome you cant change the machine ID on later version?
Because sony made changes to the PS2 hardware so that you cannot do it after ver. 8. Even if you could change your Machine ID, you'd need a valid ID from a NTSC console, and unless you have a good friend that has one, I doubt people will be willing to part with it.
the best advice i can give you is if you want to go online with a specific game get the pal version not ntsc, for offline games get the ntsc version only, that's how i do it, and it's fairly easy to patch for games for dnas.
A)If you have already made a backup of a game can you still patch it,or do you necessarily need to make a new one?
B)Also is there any list with the games that support online gaming,so i will be able to know next time which version i should go for?
