ESR run NTSC/J backup games on NTSC U/C console?
ESR run NTSC/J backup games on NTSC U/C console? –
hey, i've searched, and ive found nothing on this. if i burn a backup of an NTSC/J game, and patch it with ESR patcher before i burn it, can esr run it on my north american NTSC console? thx for help
ESR can run any (compatible) game when properly ripped and ESR-patched, regardless of the regions of both the console and the game. But you may still have some other problems due to the region difference.

And even with component connection many NTSC TV sets have problems adapting to PAL signal timing. For those cases you may need to use some PAL-to-NTSC patcher before applying the ESR patch. Most modern PAL sets will have no such problem with NTSC signals though, so as long as a real RGB-cable is used (to make colours work) no further patching should be needed for such cases.
Since you intend to run a game from another NTSC region on your own NTSC console, there should be no need to do any extra patching, though you may need to adjust the contrast/brightness settings slightly to compensate for the difference between NTSC-J and the US variety.

thanks a ton. then can you tell me if kingdom hearts 2 final mix+ is compatible with ESR r9b?
thanks, it is. this thread should be closed O.o
I have an NTSC-J game that I play on my NTSC-U PS2 using FMCB and ESR. I have a newer television with component video and so the game displays just fine on that TV.
However, it would be very convenient to play the game on another television at times. Unfortunately, the only other available TVs are both standard definition, with the highest video option being S-Video. When I attempt to run the backup through these TVs the picture is completely black and white. There is no jumpiness or rolling lines, just a loss of color. While this is the case, running the disc image from OPL results in no such picture problems on either TV.
I've inquired about this before and have been told to use several different patchers that will fix the y-axis of the image or apply a region-choosing screen to the disc; however, aren't these methods pointless as the game is NTSC and not PAL? Also, is there anything that can be done to the disc image prior to burning it to allow usage on a standard definition TV? Finally, why will the game run fine on any television when loading through OPL?
Your tvs are too old, cant manage the diference between J and USA ntsc.
Is that game the only case?
No, I have another NTSC-J disc that has the same issue, so it is definitely an incompatibility between the games' native video output and my TVs. I'm just perplexed as to what OPL does to make them display correctly through S-video...

OPL as a NTSC and PAL switch built in that forces certain video modes based on this program

Fantastic! It only took about 10 to 15 minutes of testing different settings in GSM to get it to look perfect on my screen.
