    As the tittle says, i went to Portugal and saw True Crime: Streets of LA in one of the malls there. I bought it and took it back home to Canada but low and behold, it turns out that the PAL and NTSC frame rates apply to PS2 games as well so i was unable to play it on my PS2. I tried running it on my PS3 hoping for a miracle but it said that it was the wrong reigon code as well... so the big question, how can i convert a PS2 game from PAL to NTSC and from an unknown region to region 1.

    all help is very apreciated ^.^

    unless your system is modded and you can play back up discs then you can't as far as i know.
    Because you would have to make a copy of the original and use a program that converts PAL to NTSC, then burn it to a blank DVD

    I am not sure but it may also be possible to use Swap Magic, but you also need to mod your system to use that.

    Option 3, get a good mod chip installed and then your system will pretty much play any game from any region. Backup copy or original.

    This is SwapMagic

    http://www.consoleplus.com/support/supp_slidecard.htm


    google SwapMagic 3.6 with slidecard.. Probably wanna get the small mod that clips onto ur PS2 DVD just to make things easier for you.

    Good luck on finding it, I have a site for the UK.. but ur in Canada, so I doubt that would really help you much. Heh,

    Kind regards,
