Ps1 / PS2 demos

category: general [glöplog]

What is the best way to get ps1 and ps2 demos running on a real ps2 (scph-79003)? I'm rather confused at all the options available!

I've seen a number of possible solutions, and am not sure which one would work for both ps1 and ps2 disks, or whether I need a combination.

1 - get it chipped - but I dont know who does it in norwich/uk - a few places online say they no longer do this because its illegal

2 - splatter the sensors with electrical tape / bits of tissue paper etc, then swap the disk while its spinning.

3 - swap magic + the "magic switch".

4 - a memor32 card (probably with memento or free mcboot) - would either of these work? (have seen youtube vids showing just the card inserted, and loading a backup game), oh - and I have seen that theres a problem with some new PS2 bioses...)

5 - use an emulator on my pc!

Why on earth does it have to be so hard??

Any other ideas?
i think there was a way to have an external usb disk working on the ps2.. not sure if it needs to be chipped to handle that though.

Personally I'm using the PS1 gamesave exploit.... no chip required, no swap, nothing to kill my ps2 :)
