PS2 mod chips

the magic discs aren't a good idea to get cuz its not just a simple swap, you have to eject the door by hand using either a chipped off credit card (they sell these as slide cards, big rip-off) or a plastic knife (mcdonalds anyone? :-D ) and then put in the game disc.

 

they also sell a fliptop case for older ps2's which the top filps open for easy access to swap but its a very very ugly case.

 

magic swap discs are also known not to play all games especially dvd-rips (dvds ripped down to cd size).

 

if you got an older ps2 and can or know someone who can solder very small points, definitly get a duo mod. www.foundmy.com sells them for $21 + shipping.

 

there are other mods but like i mentioned in my last post all of them play games except for certian flaws in magic 3/3.1

Have you actually purchased anything from foundmy.com ?

I'm just curious. I don't want to get ripped off.

but why don't chip makers make the newer chips compatible with older ps2's anymore? Wouldn't that make them more money by selling a lot more?

 

ah screw it, I'll just buy that swap magic thing

one quick question dude, does the boot disk for the cd-r's also work with burned/imported ps1 games?

swap magic doesn't work on ps1 games, just ps2. also if you got a 30001 (it can be v1-v4) get either duo or messiah 2. believe me you're better off getting a mod tho it takes a pro to do it if you never soldered anything with small points.

yeah, I'll just get the breaker pro for now, then later I'll get the swap magic. I would hate to ruin my ps2's board by soldering w/the wrong type of soldering tool(especially if its the kind with a lot of voltage)
