whats the best way to go about ps2 to vga?
whats the best way to go about ps2 to vga? –
i dont seem to be able to find a ps2 vga cable for sale anywhere. is there some way i can do it with a set of ps2 component cables and an adaptor of some sort?
all i know about my monitor is its an old kds visual sensations j71c. 17 inch i believe. regular old (heavy) crt vga monitor. it does 1024x768 for my pc (native resolution) and i also use it for my dreamcast (DC vga box). So it works fine with the dreamcast if that helps tell anything.
so whats the simplest available way. i'd rather not solder anything but just connect a few adaptors and play if thats possible...
im trying to read up on converters and transcoders but having a little trouble figuring out what i need.
thanks for any input
i suppose i'll just try a component to vga adaptor cable and see what happens

search in the GSM forum... there was a lot of talk on VGA cables there.

as far as i know, the ps2 vga cable was only used for ps2 linux and actual ps2 games dont work for it. i could be wrong, but my memory tells me that much....
Okay, here's the deal:
If your monitor supports sync on green you're lucky and a simple component -> VGA adapter will do it.
But if your monitor doesn't support it, it's much more complicated and you need an additional electronic device (bought or self-made), that strips the sync signal from the green signal. (I don't know your "DC VGA box", but you might be able to use that for the PS2 as well.)

VGA modes for PS2 games (and other applications) can be enforced with a homebrew program called GS Mode Selector:
