NTSC games in a PS2 PAL with ESR?
NTSC games in a PS2 PAL with ESR? –
I've a PAL PS2, I want to play a NTSC game using ESR.
Can I load NTFS games in my PS2 PAL with ESR? It's ESR regionfree? so, it's need to patch the game iso into PAL for working? post here the patch please. thx.
Edit: Sorry changed NTSC by NTFS xD

NTSC not NTFS
And about your question...ESR is region free,meaning you can play any region game on any region PS2
You probably mean NTSC, like vsub said, since NTFS is a filesystem standard used by microsoft, and has nothing to do with PS2 stuff.

ESR itself is regionfree in the sense that games from other regions than your console will boot and run just as they do on consoles of their own region. And that also means that they will use the same TV signal standard as they would on consoles of their own region, which may or may not be a problem, depending on your TV and cable setup.
Not if your TV can handle the TV-signals of that foreign region.
so, it's need to patch the game iso into PAL for working?
And for modern PAL TV sets this is very common (unlike NTSC TV sets).
For example: my PAL TV can also sync to NTSC signal timing, but it can not use NTSC colour modulation as used in the composite cable. So with that cable my picture will be monochrome for NTSC games. So I have replaced that cable by a proper 'fully connected' RGB-to-SCART cable, which gives me a much sharper picture with much clearer colours for both PAL and NTSC games. And this is without any extra region-patching of the games.
But if your TV does not cope with NTSC sync timing, or if you insist on using the worthless composite video cable that originally comes with each console, then you must use some NTSC-to-PAL patcher on the ISO files before ESR-patching them and then burning them to discs.
Since I never use such patchers, someone else will have to do that.
post here the patch please. thx.
Or you could try your hand at searching for them yourself.
A standard term to search for is "NTSC2PAL". The same sites will probably also have "PAL2NTSC" patchers, but that is for the reverse use, when people have an NTSC console, so those are not useful for you, unless the program is smart enough to include both variants. In the latter case they are probably described only as "PAL2NTSC" since that is what most US users want. (And their TVs almost never cope with PAL sync timing...)
