This is what I do to turn my DMS off, try it with a backup to make sure, make sure your ps2 is in standby mode then hold the eject button until the tray ejects, it should now be off. Also, the only game I know that has DNAS protection is Everquest Online Adventures, I sometimes forget to turn off the modchip and get a (-402) error when it gets to the DNAS authentication, but I never get blacklisted.
what you have to realize is that unlike with xbox live the ps2 method of online gaming is completely different. whereas though with xbox live you have to register information with microsoft and the live system was obviously integrated into thier initial plans (ethernet/HD) that allowed them to insert certain aspects of prevention into thier system early.
sony doesn't have that luxury. they released a console that has a flashable memory area so more than likely any sort of detection would be impossible. and also i believe unlike live the game hosting is provided by the individual game manufacturers, that's why some games support the 3rd party ethernet adapters and some don't.
i don't think until we see the US release of the HDD will we have to even consider anything related to blacklisting...and even then the possibility is remote. Anyone else want to chime in w/ thier 0.02...because that was mines.
You do have to register you console (it makes note of the PS2 serial number and type) plus mailing address with the Network Adapter in Europe, they send a confimation code by snail mail so you must make it valid address.
In future all online games in Europe will use this registration system for gamer tags (you register a tag when signing up) similar to the Xbox Live service so you are very tracable.
This system may be later incorporated into the US but there's nothing saying they will at the moment
I don't know, you cunningly left your location field blank so I have no idea where you are from
yeah for online games that have DNAS protection im just gonna by the originals and turn off the chip and go play
