Why isn't your PS2 modded?

>inb4 emulation

It's boring as fuck emulating on a PC and you only do it because you are too stupid to hack your consoles

Comfy > High resolution
>>
I have Infinity 2.0 or something like that. Works fine.
>>
>>275301771
I heard you can't do shit on a slim ps2 so I'm trying to get a fat one
>>
Because emulation is superior 9/10 times.

Nobody gives a fuck that you just modded your PS2, this isn't your personal blog.
>>
I already did, anon.
But my DVD laser is shot and I'm too broke to get a Network Adaptor

How about BOTH comfy and high res? Why do all console plebs think it's impossible to hook a computer up to the big screen?

Also PS2 games look like fucking garbage on LCD monitors at native res.

Because I never saw an easy way for slim models that doesnt need me to pay a happy merchant to fuck with a memory card or get some hitty bond shovelware.

works for all models

>>
>>275302054
the only upside to modding fat over slim is playing ps2 games from a hard drive

for literally everything else slim is better. swapping discs on a fat ps2 is fucking hell because you need to take the top of the console off. with the slim you just tape some sensors and open the tray
>>
what's the cheapest way to install freemcboot on a fat ps2?

I saw a guide for a specific codebreaker version, but is there an easier way? That version of codebreaker is a minimum of 50 bucks on ebay
>>
>>275302724
Why would you even swap discs if you can play games from a hard drive? Disc swapping is the inferior option.

>>275301771
I modded my PS2 back in '03 when I first bought it, I gave it away to charity in 2008 though(i do it with all my video games after I'm done with done with them).

Modding is superior since you'll never have an issue playing games. Ps2 emulation is still far from perfect.

The only game that I have that is supposedly capable of softmodding a PS2 is original Snake Eater

I followed a dozen guides and even several youtube videos to replace the network elf or whatever but whenever I disk swap and hit Online it gives the red error screen so after wasting a spindle of DVDs I gave up.

I own about 90% of the games I really want on that system.

Collecting for the PS2 is pretty cheap right now. Used to be cheaper, but it's still okay.

There are some outliers, though.

I use a swap disc to bypass region lock.

It plays Jap any region of games.

Thank god for swapmagic

Waste of time when emulation exists.
We're not just talking "high resolution"
We're talking anti aliasing and anisotropic filtering too.
Have you ever played SOTC on an actual ps2?
By today's standards it looks like utter shit. The textures are on par with that new wiiu zelda game, and they only get substantially worse the farther away they are.
>>
>>275301771
Is this 2003 again

I'm running PCSX2, emulating games at 4x native resolution then scaled back down to 1920x1080, FXAA on (which doesn't look half bad although I suspect it from causing some blur issues in FF12) at a constant 60FPS and can go up to 120 FPS if needed.

All of this is linked to a 43 inch TV and I'm playing comfortably in my chair with a ghetto PS2 USB controller.

Why do you not invest $1200 into a PC ?

If you're gonna play on a real PS2 at least use a CRT.

Emulation is still better though.

I sold my fat PS2 that modded with Free MCboot to my friend, there's no point in owning a PS2 if you already have a high end PC and PCSX2.
>>
>>275302054
There are 2 distinctions of Slim. The ones that have a gloss strip in the middle of the top can use freemcboot. Later models that have a glossy square over the part of the top that isn't above the DVD drive can't.

That said, I have a fat ps2 with a hard drive, and it ended up being such a pain in the ass to actually transfer games to the hard drive to play (which is horrendously slow going even over ethernet rather than copying from the disk), that I ended up just using a latest model slim and swap magic.

That was when I bothered to use it at all, at least. Now PCSX2 isn't perfect, but it's good enough for most games that the upsides far outweigh the downsides.
>>
>>275306493
what does that have to do with anything? i'm not saying PS2 emulation is perfect, i'm saying that PS2 can't accurately emulate older consoles.
