    hello, i have this problem, i live in argentina, and my father bought me a PS2 in europe. The problem i have is that when i put the demo CD it is shown in black and white. I would like to know what do i need to play NTSC games in the PAL PS2?
    If i put the mod chip in the PS2, wold i be able to play NTSC games with color? or i'll see them in black and white becuase the TV is NTSC and doesn't support the PAL from the PS2? Would i need a PAL to NTSC converter to see the games in colour?
    I hope u can help, becuse i looken in the forum but couldn't find this particular problem
    thanks in advance

    well it's the tv dude... tv's today support all ntsc modes as well pal and progres scan... get one of them small 14 inch tv's they cheap and they got pal/ntsc modes build in them... chip dosent solve this... if you cant get a tv... get a scart cable that fixes the green screen aswell black and white problem.... make sure the tv supports it...

    I think there are Pal to NTSC converters to fix your games.I was thinking though couldn't cdloader fix it to where it loads Pal games or can it only load NTSC games just wondering haven't tried it yet.
