I have made another post in the CD backup section but its not getting much feedback and i have made progress since then. Basically i have a flip top but now want a proper mod. Im looking at Magic 3.1 which i have found for very cheap. I think magic V is only for non PAL am i right? Anyway is that chip good enough? All i use my ps2 for is games. I really dont care much about whether it can run dvd films and such like. All i care about is it can run all games with direct boot. PS - my ps2 was bought near launch and i think its a version 4 if that matters.
