So I am new to the forums here at afterdawn, hello all. Anyways I have a couple questions to ask. I thought i would ask in one post instead of taking up a whole page. 1) If an original PS2 game is on a DVD format CD then is there anyway I can play it on a modded PS2 with just a regular CD-R/ CD-RW?... maybe it could be split or something. I only have a CD-RW drive and DVD drive but no DVD-RW drive which is why I am asking. 2)What is the best modchip out there that can do all the basic functions including being able to play any type of games? This would be the 1st modchip that I am going to buy (and hopefully the only one). 3)Does anyone know any sites that show any stores where modchips are sold? I live in the Boston area and I can only think of one place that I know of that sell/installs modchips. Its called Disc Angels if anyone has ever heard of it let me know. However I am unsure of what type of modchips they sell nor do I know how well they install them. Im not too comfortable buying anything online so dont bother trying to persuade me. 4)Is 80$ a good deal to buy and get a modchip installed? This is how much Disc Angels is goin to charge me and I dont feel like gettin ripped off anytime soon. I have no clue on how to solder so I am in no way going to even try it. Any suggestions and help would be very appreciative. I hope to enjoy being at these forums.
