    I downloaded 3 PS2 games from mininova.com and only 1 of them works right. The horizontal hold if off on the other 2 games. The TV screen just keeps moving up and down. The games seem to work fine other than that. They load and play but the screen won't stay still. They are iso games and I'm using Nero to burn them by loading the cue sheet.

    it is most likely because the game you are loading is from a different region then your PS2
    how are you loading them?
    If you use Swap Magic try the video mode option on the main screen
    if you have a PAL system set the mode to NTSC and try loading it, if you have an NTSC system try setting it to PAL
    you can also try loading the game by pressing square instead of X
    which is the special boot mode

    Thanks Steimy, that did the trick. There was an option at the beginning to pick either pal or ntsc. I couldn't see it that well because the screen was jumping too much. Wish I would have asked for help earlier before making 3 coasters. Thanks again.

    no problem man, we were all new at this at one point or another. Unfortunately a lot of people on forums have forgotten this and can be a little harsh on questions they see as being "too easy" or they just do not even bother to answer.

    Glad you sorted it out.

    Hey Gang,
    Been reading lots here and just signed up.
    I'm having the same issue with (horizontal hold?) with 2 PS2 games from torrents, one burned from ISO the other from MDS. They seem to be there and regognized by the PS2 but the screen just keeps jumping. How-where do I find that setting to know what I am set at or to make the change that was mentioned above? Can I salvage these discs or do I need to reburn and change a setting at that time? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    By the way... modchip in PS2, running WIN XP MCE, trying to burn NHL07 and FIFA07 using LG burner DVDRAM GSA-H22N. I have Nero 6.6, DVD Decrypter, Alcohol120, Daemon mounter, DVD Shrink, Power ISO. Anything else I can tell you?
    Thanx

    I tried this with the ISO file...

    "There are three steps to patching a game from PAL to NTSC.
    1)Make an ISO file of the game
    2)Patch the ISO file
    3)Burn the patched ISO file


    1)Make an ISO file of the game
    a)Download and install DVD Decrypter.
    hxxp://fileforum.betanews.com/sendfile/1011845169/1/SetupDVDDecrypter_3.5.4.0.exe
    b)Run DVDDecrypter.exe
    b)Select Mode-->Iso-->Read
    c)For the Source, choose the dvd drive that has the game in it.
    d)For the Destination, select a location to save the ISO file.
    e)Select File-->Decrypt. This will now create the ISO for the game.


    2)Patch the ISO file
    a)Download PS2 PAL TO NTSC PATCHER WITH Y-FIX V1.06 BETA
    b)Run ps2_pal2ntsc_yfix.exe
    c)Click Browse and select the iso file of the game
    d)Select 48 as the Y-Fix offset. You cannot have it perfectly centered because the PAL signal has more lines or resolution than the NTSC signal does. This is as close as you can get. You can raise the offset if you need to see more of the bottom of the screen or you could lower the offset if you want to see more of the top of the screen.
    e)I choose to uncheck Make PN Selector
    f)Click PATCH FILE. The following screen that pops up just means that the elf file of the game was backed up to your hard drive. Just click ok and exit the program.


    3)Burn the patched ISO file
    a)Run DVDDecrypter.exe
    b)Select Mode-->Iso-->Write
    c)For the Source, locate your patched ISO file. The program patches and overwrites your orignal ISO file. Select your orignal ISO file.
    e)For the Destination, select the dvd drive you wish to burn the game.
    f)Select your prefered write speed
    g)Select File-->Write. This will now burn the game. "

    I skipped to step 2 (already had the ISO)... put the DVD in the PS2 and now after the Playstation2 splash screen there is nothing but black screen..... UGGG

    Pleeze... my BRAIN hurtz and my stack of coasters is getting out of hand;~) any help???
