experimental tool: ps2force480p
experimental tool: ps2force480p –
Here's an experimental tool that can force some PS2 games to run in progressive mode (480p). I wrote it for Ar Tonelico 2 since that game doesn't work with HDTV xploder; results with other games seems to be mixed.
I recently made some enhancements so that Persona 3 FES displays correctly, but it runs at an above normal frame rate. Any suggestions about that are welcome.
Thank you for doing this. I was hoping a generous soul would make an app that takes care of the dirty patching work so we can spend more time testing which games work. Then we're able to provide some feedback to see if there are similarities between games that work with your patch, besides using the same game engine.
I'll report whatever information you desire from the games that I test. Within the limits of my ability that is.
Also, could let us know how to use your tool. Is it run from command line?
Thanks again for your generosity.
I tried the Asterix & Obelix XXL, PAL again, and now DY affects little. Using ps2force480p_aggressive.exe
If i put without DY, the picture is flat, and little over on top.
And with any value of DY, the picture is flat, but full picture.
But what is the value range on DY?
Command line app for Windows. Best/fastest way to use is to place it and the game in C:\ then open command line, type "C:", <enter>, type "ps2", press <tab>, and <enter>.

Hmm interesting.. What "introductive video" u mean? the "Playstation 2" screen, or what? tell more

Dunno why some video could prevent VGA-mode displaying properly :S
Hi, i dont mean the Playstation 2 splash screen but the video intro of the game. PES2008 pulled to 480p hangs after the screen with the KONAMI logo so i have removed the .pss video from the dvd and then the game load and i can play in 480p.
Just speculation, but the video playback might be waiting for a field1 vsync. In 480p mode the vsync is apparently always field0.
Hi asmodean, i have only tried your trick to use 480p on my game. The result is only to help you to do a better ps2force480p software.....Maybe there will be a 720p version of this software? To fill my 16/9 TV?
Bye and good work.
Proper 640x480 should fill the screen entirely.
But u can always change the mode manyally, after u have applied the patch. Just compare patched and unpatched with hex editor, there u see similar like:
00001124 50001224 06008010 00001324 as first result, change the 50 to 52 for 720p mode.
JUst some temporarily solution
Hi MysTiCy, so i must edit with Hexedit the whole Iso or the elf executable of the game?
