I'm new to this forum. I know that the same question has been asked and you guys must have got irritated with this question. I have a PS2 (NTSC american) SCPH 70012. I know I'm steppin into the world of modding pretty late. I have a new sony ps2 memory card, two re-writable dvd's, a 8 gb sony usb and many softwares from Youtube (except cogswap.elf). I dont have an option of a modchip or buyin swap magic from anywhere. I know how to block my ps2 sensors using tape and tissue. I have swap magic software not the original dvd, but i read somewhere swap magic must be bought as original, only then it would work. I want to be able to play PAL games on my ps2. Someone please help. I have been searchin many forums and tried many things but nothin seems to work. Thanks for your patience.
