Need a little guidance –
I've been reading different ways to play PS2 and PS1 backups and I'm at the point my head is just spinning. So I just wanted to know the best way for me to go about this. My main goal is to play backed up copies of my PS1 games, mainly Suikoden 1&2 and a few Final Fantasy's, I'd like to retire the actual copies I have. I currently have an original FAT PS2, I think the model is 30001. From what I've seen, the simplest option, assuming I can find someone to do it, is install a mod chip, but ideally I'd rather not mess with my PS2. From what I understand, FMB won't allow me to play PS1 backups, so that's not an option. Would I be better off going down to the used game store and buying a PS1 for $12 and getting a mod chip for that, or is there a non modding way of doing this that doesn't require swapping disks, at least while they're spinning, don't feel comfortable doing that.
I apologize if this is a common question, or if anyone can point me to a previous link that's fine, thank you.
for ps2 Backups you dont have much options left seeing you dont want to risk damaging your ps2 with swapping and modchip. my advice is using Free MCBoot. it is a memory card exploit. i'm using it with a mix of HD Loader and patching my games with ESR patcher
with ps1 backups im sorry but from my knowledge there is no way other then modchip or swapping
Yeah that's what I figured. So do you think I'd be better off modding my PS2, or pickup a PS1 cheap and mod that? I know which chip I'd use for the PS1, any recommendations for the PS2?
