The Universal PS2..... what does it say on the back of the machine? It should say SCPH-xxxxxx
IIRC the only BIOS which doesn't work is the original Jap one, so that should be no issue for you, being from Calafornia nad all....
SCPH-00000?? well it lets me ply any game i want burnt w/e maybe its been pre-modified but yea prolly wondering why a emu? well im gonna be leaving soon and i have a custom laptop which is stronger than most gaming desktops and having my favorite ps2 games and plying them on the road is well jus priceless.
Well.... if you'd read the stickies, etc before posting, you'd understand you can't play PS2 games on the PC yet, and even when we can, your 'custom laptop which is stronger than most gaming desktops' will most likely be hopelessly inadequete.
tht i understand however it can be easily overcome once its finished. Im sure it will run smoothly with out a problem most people exgerate the req. and u can always configure the settings around. But i understand where your coming from and i thank you for taking the time to respond to my question.
