haha! how weird is that?? Kinda spooky eh u must have beat me by seconds.. damn I knew I shouldn't have wasted time on that last rolo!
Can anyone let me know which Matrix Infinity ModChip to go for.. the guy I purchased the PS2 from has said if I pay to return the PS2 he will install to the latest version of the Modbo chip for free. I asked about the Matrix Infinity - he said he could install this if I wished although would cost me a further £20.
Should I pay the extra? And also what Matrix Infinity chip should I be looking for to get, what is the full name/model number etc.. as i'd like to get around to possibly flashing my PS2 in the future once I am more comfortable with the whole process.
Just ask him to install the ORIGINAL MATRIX infinity not a cheap clone like he has done, he will know exactly what you are talking about!!!
Hope you get it sorted.
yes... and tell him to take a picture of the installation...tell him to put a sticker with ur name on it, on top of the chip or somewhere on the motherboard...
Ok i've decided to go with the Matrix Infinity - i'll let you know of my progress.
thanks. an interesting way of doing it. would never have thought of that myself!
Quick question guys...
I have a slimline PS2 (under 2 months old), I recently acquired an original copy of 'Gran Turismo 4' - the disc itself is fairly scratched. The game itself loads in my PS2 however when I try to load a race it simply freezes on a loading screen (purely black) and all I get is the background audio music.
I have tried the exact same disc on my nephews PS2 (the larger older style) which is approx 3 years old yet it seems to work flawlessy with GT4 - Can anyone explain why my nephews PS2 seems to read the disk better than mine???
His PS2 isn't chipped, mine is still in its damaged chipped state (see the threads above if your new) however I presumed the chip wouldnt affect anything here as the game I'm loading is an original disc not a backup.
Is there any particular reason why mine struggles to load 'scratched discs' more?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated..
Matrix team is a very clever group. Even if the chip is "cracked" for one bios revision, the next one won't work on it. they keep changing their anti-clone protection.
If you want a cheap chip that does a number of things in it's default configuration, the clones work.
BUT if you want all advanced features to work, and to be able to upgrade to future revisions, get the real thing. No matter how good the clone is, they do not use the more expensive Actel Pro-ASIC chips that the real thing uses, and the matrix coders can check for the presence of this chip many many ways, and they change it each time they update the firmware. and most features default to disabled to force people to go into the menu to kill the chip.
Most advanced cheap chip out there is probably ICE code based chips.
