    Hi , i have 2 questions to ask ..reply if you like.

    1.Which is the best MOD chip for ps2? and why?

    2.Is it possible to play games with swap magic(coder edition) without using flip-top or the flip-card(or however you call it) ?
    What i mean :
    You just enter the boot disc and then the game.

    1. I don't know for sure but i have heard that DMS4 is the best modchip for ps2.
    2. You need a flip-top or slide card for using Swap Magic.

    Nice , thanks.

    About the mod chip :
    All i have to do is to buy the chip(just the chip? nothing else?) , and
    ask from someone to install it on my ps2..right?\\

    edit:
    I have the old ps2 version**

    well if you like online play and it will work with your version PS2 then the Crystal Chip V2.0 would be best for you.
    Why is that is has a feature to auto patch your back ups for online play so your back up discs do not have to be manually patched. If using originals then you can just disable the chip as it will not be needed.

    2.Is it possible to play games with swap magic(coder edition) without using flip-top or the flip-card(or however you call it) ?

    No, you need to buy a flip top (slide cards you can make but they are a lot harder to use)

    and on a side note, you have 2 real options on modding it.
    1. send it to a reputable site like Teammodders and have them mod it and send it back (it will come ready to go out of the box)
    2. buy the chip and have someone local who KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING
    mod it. (you may need to download a flash and flash the chip if they do not do it for you)

    also google "PS2 Versions" because you need to know the exact version of PS2 you have to know if the chip will work.
    not just that it is a fat or slim model

    I thought this thread was dead , and yesterday i completed the order form for flip top & the magic swap:/.

    Anyway , i dont care since i can do everything with the swap magic..

    Can someone give me some tips for the installation part of the flip top?
    like what to avoid etc..
    (i have a video but the quality sucks)

    well if it is a fat version PS2 then be very careful when
    taking off the top cover. The power/eject ribbon is connected
    to both the top & bottom of the case and can be pulled out
    or broken quite easily

    this post was only started this month, and this month is only 9 days old so why would you assume that it is dead?
    You need to be more patient.

    Yes , i have the "fat" version with the 8 screws (v4 or v5 or v6 or v7..).

    Thanks for the tip , when the package arrive i'll have it in mind.

    One last question: The memory card's slot is connected on the flip top by default ? or i have to remove it also?

    Thanks again.

    Yea i know , i just wanted to get something fast ...

    edit:
    Never mind , i found the answer for my last question:
