How to Play Pal Games on an NTSC TV
How to Play Pal Games on an NTSC TV –
Does anyone know how to play pal games on a ntsc tv? I got a bunch of pal games but i only have a ntsc tv. What do i need to change the signal so the game can be displayed correctly and in full screen? Thanks
You need to shell out some bux for a converter. A NTSC to Pal comverter is cheap, but the other way around is much harder to find and costs more. Or you can buy a Multi System TV, in the US and Canada they are not sold in retail stores and must be ordered. Not worth it.
I can play ntsc games on my pal tv without the use of any special cables/converters, so why not with pal games on ntsc tv?
Because ntsc has 525 lines and pal has 625, that's 100 more than an ntsc only tv can display. See the problem with converting?
Most all PAL Tvs are Multisystems, and can play both 50hz/60hz, also the fact that its easier to strech and image than it is to squish it. NO Retail TVs in the US play both Signals.
Do gthe NTSC Color Fix as decribed in the Messiah 2 Install Guides published int he FAQ.
Charlie, wont that just fix the color though? That wont change the 50hz into 60hz nor will it change it to 525 lines.
It will be Pseudo-NTSC 50Hz 625 NTSC 3.58MHz . If your TV can handle the 50 Hz (as many/most modern US TVs can) then the picture won't roll. it is down to the TV.
Read what's at this URL - it will explain why it might work.
I personaly dont think so. Ive run My PAL PS2s on multiple very high end TVs, none of em take the 50hz, all of em rools, but you can try. What about the number of lines? Will it crop it?
Read the stuff in the link.
The TV makers would have to do something fairly deliberate for 50Hz not to work in a modern NTSC TV. Now that may be so - USA isn't quite the land of the free that it likes to portray when it comes to tight consumer control!
I always say in relation to NTSC - "see your Congressman"!
