    Unfortunately the only way you will be able to play them without installing a chip is to either use a no solder mod w/swap magic discs or use a fliptop case or even the slide card, but you still need to swap magic discs. do a search on google and you'll find what your looking for

    go with the flip top over the slide card
    there will be much less of a chance of you damaging your ps2

    with almost every mod there are games that cant play there are very few that wont play with a flip top but there are many more that wont play with the no solder chip

    if you want more info on flip tops there is a good thread thats almost like a new topic in it self
