You might be able to find a good upscaler from a secondhand store like I did. The compatibility list here is quite helpful.

The only downside to my iScan HD+ is that it doesn't handle analog audio at all, so new TVs that don't provide separate DVI/HDMI video and analog audio inputs will require another adapter. (It's still cheaper than a Framemeister, though!)

That is until fortune backed by some googling smiled again. A PSP PSU I'd stashed away turns out to be a direct replacement to resurrect my Framemeister! We'll see how long it lasts.

Yeah, my TV doesn't seem to do 240p over component, either - I have to force a different resolution via Free McBoot and GSM for PS1 games, otherwise I'll just get a black screen. It's a bit of a pain having to re-enter the proper settings every time tho, so I'm not sure if I'll be playing much PS1 this way...

I just received an early Christmas present from my mother-- she got me one of those light therapy lamps for Seasonal Affective Disorder. (I'd done some research and asked her to get me the recommended model from this big ol' comparison article.)

How's it? Well, I just started using it like 10 minutes ago, and they say it can take a few days for results to appear, so who knows. The angle and height adjustment is pretty good-- I'm using it right now while typing away on my laptop. And it's bright-- I had to turn up the brightness on my laptop so it wouldn't get drowned out.

Got a very crappy component video cable for the PS2, which has significant ghosting on high contrast edges - think the PS2's main menu, the text versus the dark background.

Then I found and ordered a used, official Sony component cable from eBay, from Austria for 15 Euro shipped. Hope that'll work better, tho I'd assume so because it's official?

I'll probably return the crappy one once the other one arrives...

picked up Let's Go Eevee with the Poke Ball Plus a couple days ago
it's really not nearly as easy-peasy as people made it out to be,
even with the powerful partner eevee
it's also very, very cute
*adorable eevee noises*

Got a PlayStation 2 Slim (SCPH-70004) at a flea market for 8 Euro! But no power supply, no AV cables, no controller; just two Memory Cards, one by Sony for PS1, one 3rd-party card for PS2. Also a leaked clock battery and thus corrosion/rust on the RF shield, but that cleaned up decently.

It does work with a universal PSU and runs games just fine, from both CD and DVD, so I ordered an original PSU and a replacement battery. Hoping to get a modchip for it too, tho I'll first need someone to install it since I'm not skilled enough for that kinda soldering

Got a cool new CPU case that comes with more fans and also supports USB 3.0! Except my motherboard doesn't support USB 3.0. And also I can't put an internal DVD drive on it, so no CD/DVD reading/writing for a bit.



One thing at a time! Next priority is going to be an external DVD drive and an SSD, which will hopefully be provided in the coming months. Last priority is going to be a new motherboard + CPU, which is going to take a while, at least a year if not more.

Probably going to switch to the new case next week.

Sure. When can we hang out?

Are you in the area? (Europe), else I can be persuaded for some voice chat if ya like.

Unfortunately, Florida is not in Europe. :/

More newly-assembled than new. This little guy was for practice.
If only decent Megazord Zyuranger kits were more affordable...

Are there any softmods analogous to Free McBoot on the PS2?


No. There isn't.
If you don't have a modchip installed, a bootable disc is always needed.
You can either use a savegame exploit. You'll need someone to write the save to the memorycard, a softmodded Wii can be used for this.
OR you can buy the Datel SD Media Launcher, which comes with an SD-Card adapter (SD-Gecko). Also works as an Action Replay for cheating and Freeloader to play import games.
OR you can use an Action Replay with lots of AR codes to patch itself to boot from SD-Gecko, if you don't already have one, buy the SD Media Launcher instead.
OR you can use the PSO Exploit with a broadband adapter (BBA) (expensive).

I use an SD Media Launcher and a SSBM savegame exploit to run Game Boy Interface.
