I just stumbled across this site via Crystal-Chips.Com while trying to figure out which modchip to get with my new PSTwo and thought this forum was exactly what I was looking for. Instead of clearing some things up the experience of reading through this forum has left me a little lost though.
Instead if finding answers in these threads I found more questions. I hope some of you could be so kind as to help me figure some of this stuff out.
First of all, I've decided on a silver PS2 with a Crystal V2.0 modchip. There's a great deal on modded PS2/PSTwo's on a german site that I don't want to miss and the C-V2.0 seems to be the best, especially now that the DMS4 SE PRO (or whatever) sold out.
Reading this forum I found certain remarks that suggested some things that I'd like someone to clear up a bit for me.
For instance, I read that slimline can't play certain PSX titles. Is this true? If so, what kind of PSX titles would I miss out on?
I also read that it's prone to overheat. Is this also true? How many of you have had PSTwos without running into heat issues?
Is it possible to connect a USB-stick to a PSTwo, and if so does one need some kind of adapter for that?
Is it possible to connect a PSTwo to a network and have it communicate in some way with a PC? If so, what kind of benefits does that offer? Streaming music and video?
Is there a list of games that, for whatever reason, have issues with the Crystal V2.0 or modchips in general?
That's all I can think of right now, and I know these are newb questions, but please, bear with me here
