Why isn't your PS2 modded?
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
this is literally 'olny fat psp can be modded' tier bullshit
how do you mod your ps2?
i've a fat one
im a retard
>Comfy > High resolution
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.
>tfw you will never have an HDLoader PS2
>tfw you will never have a GD-EMU Dreamcast
>tfw you will never have an HDM Xbox
>tfw you will never have a Mega Everdrive Mega Drive
>tfw you will never have a Super Everdrive Super Nintendo
>tfw you will never have a flashcart Amiga 1200
>mfw don't have to buy Rule of Rose, .Hack series, or Shadow Hearts 2
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
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).
No point in owning a PS2 today with PCSX2 and remasters for most of the best games.
>having to dust off from the shelf the ps2
>find the wires, plug it in and expect it to work
>with the shitty ps2 controllers
I'll stick to my PC, thanks.
I have a freemcboot and network adapter on my fat PS2, but I can't get it to recognize a single harddrive I put in.
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.
>Play with a Sony controller
>In my living room
>On a big screen
Why would you play game any other way?
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.
Oh and they recently let you play PSX games via USB. SCEI official Emulator for PSX got leaked and it's being improved as we speak.
It plays Jap any region of games.
Thank god for swapmagic
Also if you want to use this way /v/ make sure your PS2 model is under 79999
Only paid $30
Pirated more than $20 worth of PS2 games already
Fatal Frame 2
DMC 1 and 3
Ace Combat 4 5 0
Sly Cooper 1 and 2
Yakuza 1 and 2
Shadow Hearts 1 and 2
Silent Hill 2 and 3
Zone of the Enders 2
Capcom vs SNK 2
Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 maybe RE chain
Some of these have HD remake alternatives though
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.
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 ?
Forgot to mention I do have a PS3 and played a few of those.
DMC HD collection
Sly Cooper Collection
Ratchet and Clank Collection
Played godhand on PSN
I own KH1,2,and Re chain
*More than $200
I don't care about graphics. If I did I would be circlejerking high end PCs with /v/ and bashing consoles all day. But I don't so there you go.
>Why isn't your PS2 modded?
Is this the year 2004?
Because PCSX2 plays the games better than the original console.
I was playing Kingdom Hearts 2 with a 60FPS speedhack with a 1440p resolution not too long ago, it was glorious.
Oh niggers when will you learn? Maybe you should have stolen a better camera nig nog.
It's me Konata chan Ruggy I just hacked my PS2 a few days ago. And in also in 2004 it wasn't this easy. The modding scene is still alive and is it's making it better. PS2 isn't dead.
Also damn look how big the PS3 slim is to a PS2 slim.
>because both of the broken PS2s and the broken PS3 are broken
>implying there is anything worth playing on either
>comfy > high resolution
>extra work = comfy
Sonyggers are this retarded
Buy it online. I got mine off an auction website equivalent of ebay.
Is 4chanx ded or what. I appreciate an easier to use captcha but it fucked over 4chanx completely and it seems like Mayhem doesn't update it anymore.
>his PC is so shit he can't even emulate gen 4 games properly
>being so much of a pleb he doesn't emulate games on his PC hooked up to a 50" screen
Get a load of these dumbasses
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.
I have a PC capable of doing that but playing on a PS2 is more comfy. It doesn't feel right on PC.
