    Hi everyone

    Sorry to be a complete noob but i'm trying to find out which is the best method of modding my ps2
    I have one of the slimline versions with the flip up lid.
    I think its a version 12 SCPH-70003 (UK version)
    I've had it a while but never got round to modding it.
    I'd be able to swap games with my friends if i went dowm the mod route but i don't know where to start.

    Thanks people.......

    The cheapest method in booting your backups and imports is using Swap Magic. A mod-chip has less hassles than using a Swap Magic disc and although the investment in a mod-chip may be expensive, it's well worth the money if you find swapping disc before you can play a game tedious and rebuilding certain games a nuisance.

    Edit: It really depends. What are you for? A mod-chip has convenience while Swap Magic is cheap. Also, if you do play backed-up games, make sure you use quality discs like Taiyo Yuden, Verbatim, Sony, Maxell and Ritek.

    or if you just want to play back up games with no higher end functions then a Duo3 Gold will do tha trick.

    make 100% sure that when it is installed that they install a laser fix as well, you need that with any V12 system.
    Teammodders.com is a great site in the USA where you can send in your PS2 and have them do all of this.

    Steimy: Do you really think the laser fix is necessary? I have a silver slim, when I bought it I installed a chip but forgot about the LF, but I've been running the console for about a year now and so have a lot of my friends and none of us has installed the sub zero, yet there's been no problems. Is it more of a 'Better to be safe than sorry' or will my laser definitely get fried at some point?

    I have the Sub fix chip so I can install it if I have to, although I really couldn't be bothered unless it's absolutely essential.
