noob questions: NTSC & modchip?
noob questions: NTSC & modchip? –
I'm living in Korea... just purchased a modded SCPH-39005 NTSC-J... The problem is that I don't know what modchip is in it and the guy who previously owned it was only interested in modding it so he could play burned games. Is there any way to find out the modchip inside without opening it up?
Also, I'm not clear about region differences (assuming the modchip doesn't affect that)... I know some games are made NTSC-J and NTSC-UC but are there any that work in both regions or what?
Kinda hard to determine but...
How do you boot PSX games?
I haven't tried original PSX games and I can't seem to get burned (downloaded) copies to work... All the games I currently have are DVD copies and they boot just fine, though I do have to reset at least once...
You are probably booting it incorrectly. But wait... if you burn a PSX game into a DVD it will work?
OK Well I think it actually may be a problem with the laser. Or perhaps the modchip doesn't allow burned PSX games. I've been working with HD Advance from a CD-RW and it's okay... although I did have to burn the file structure (as opposed to burning an ISO or IMG or whatever)... using Nero Mode 2 XA with an 8.3 file structure... I'll download some more PSX images over the next couple of days to see if that works for those, too.
Do you have a PS2 cdr based game to test?
Out of curiousity, after testing the boot-triangle button - which doesn't work, so I know I don't have a DMS - will a PS2 CDR game use the cogswap exploit so I can launch an ELF from the Memory card? I'm not entirely sure, it even will read CD-Rs as I've been using the same CDRW lately... I've tried 3 brands of RWs and only 1 works...
As for my original question, I think the NTSC-J means nothing to me thanks to the modchip... I noticed that BloodRayne appears not to have been released in the Asian market at all... it's an NTSC-UC game that I have... (DVD burned copy I should say)
