    Lol I probably shouldnt say this. But technically you can easily make your own Magic Keys 2 Set with some tape a bit of cotton. But anyway I wouldnt suggest it. But what I would suggest instead of all the tools like Magic Keys 2. Which I have but hate cuz I dont like the idea of that stuff in my Ps2 for some reason. Anyway Id suggest a fliptop (not the one that came with the ps2)

    Its a very nice alternative and its only 14 bucks.

    It's pretty easy if you know what you're suppose to do and what for. For the tissue mod, you do three things. First of all, roll up a tissue small enough to press the on/reset button, holding it firmly in place. The on/reset button is where one of the 3 PS2 sensors are which allows the PS2 to detect if the lid is open. Secondly, the next thing is the disc break (the thing that rubs the side of the PS2 game you inputted to the right of the laser. Get something firm yet small enough to hold it in place to the right so it doesn't get loose or anything. And third, the last sensor is under the hinges, which you can't see unless you open the PS2 up. The hinges are basically those two things that makes the flip-top flippable when you're opening and closing it. It's quite noticeable and there's one on each side of the slim PS2's laser. The last sensor, which basically looks like a switch you use to switch on the kitchen light or whatever, is underneath one of those -- mainly the one to the left of the laser. As for how to do this part, I suck at explaining it, lol. Sorry -_-. I believe you'll be better off getting the answer from someone else instead of me.

    Probably relatively small. No different than Magic Keys most likely. I just dont like the idea of ne thing inside the playstation like that xD. And even with Magic Keys 2 I still ended up taping the switch inside the console cuz the Key they give you is ridiculous to put in.

    its actually 0% because your not soldering or touching the motherboard just some tissue and tape.

    It doesnt matter because if the disk stop isnt stopped it wont matter.

    You actually don't have to do anything to "Point B". I've managed to play my games fine without it with only two of the 3 sensors blocked. As for why you would hold the disc break back, it depends what game. Some games require the use of the disc break while others actually work a bit better with it. As for which ones specifically, I won't say but if you ever have some weird problems, try tampering with the disc break (remove what's holding the disc break in place or place something there to hold it).
