Dms3 installation options???
Dms3 installation options??? –
I have bareley installed one before with sodering but I very much lack skill in that department and ive been reading that I could use a glue gun intead as long as I made shure the wire was touching the points
what do you guys think about that option? and do you have any outher ways/idea/sugestions for me?

There's no other way than solder. Hot glue is used for keeping the wires flat along the board.
on anouther site this guy said he installed it entireley with hot glue, I think it might work
I dont see any harm in trying it if i use a low tempiture glue gun it cant do any heat damage or relly short anything out if it fails ill just pick out the glue
If there is some way attempting this could cause damage to my system I would appreciate you making me aware of it
otherwise I think I will give it a try in a few days, I will keep you updated on my success or failure
It might work, but in th long run it wont be worth the trouble. The 30 awg wire isnt exactly easy enough to glue down and then run it flat agaist the board. You will also have trouble with the thicker wire for the ground and 3.5v wire.
Go for it and let us know if it works! Not trying to be negative about the whole thing, if it dont work it cant do any harm. However I think youll find the dms chip to be very unforgiving without the wires soldered down. The more features the chip has, the more power runs through it and the more stable of mod it needs to be. If you were to do it with say a messiah or DUO, id say maybe it will work.
Another thing you need to worry about is what version of PS2 youve got. If you've got a v9 or 10, theres no way youre going to get it to stick to the vias, even if you go the DVD pins route, your going to have a hell of a time holding 9 wires .02mm apart to glue to the tiny pins. Glueing to the pads arent going to be easy either.
it will never work!!
done even bother wasting your time, buy a 12/15w soldering iron and just solder it, its not hard with a bit of practice on an old modem or similar!
