HEY. I'm the new noob! Sup!!
I'm new here so I thought I'd say HI!! I din't know where the intro forum page was so I posted my hello here!!
Anyways, I apoligize if I am not posting this in the right forum but I had a few miscellaneous questions and I'm hoping that maybe someone has the answers!!
1)I bought a ps2 game from ebay about 1 year ago or so (Dragon's Lair 3d) which was cancelled for US release and I thought they didn't have any copies available for the public.
Anyways, I'm a US PS3 owner (used to have a PS2 though) and I'm looking for a way to play the damn thing on my PS3. Problem is, is that it's from Australia and is in PAL format. I've been so frickin pissed off and frustrated thus far that I can't play it. I've been wanting this game forever!! Any ideas......or is there no options except hoping that Sony adds it to their list of new backward compatible playable ps2 games.
2)I also remember running across a Mario collection ps2 game a while back (probably emulated and burnt/hacked) and again, I tried to make a copy of that and....big surprise....it didn't work.
If it's any help, I own a Swap Magic 3 plus DVD and CD driver(s). I don't know. I know on the PS2 and PS1 there were easy ways of modding the systems. Although, I'm not really interested in cracking the black box of wonders open.
I know it's still early on in the PS3 world and there is still minimal knowledge of the emulating/hacking/homebrew/modding world but, I thought I'd try and see if any of you have any ideas. Sorry to bother you with my petty problems and I don't know if this is the right place to find the information but, please help if you can. Thanks!!
Sorry guys...away from my computer earlier.
Yeah, sorry if I haven't relpied back to any of your comments....which I definetly appreicate. Anywhat, where was I.......oh yeah. So, I want to install another operating system (I'm a mac user so OSX would be ultimate bliss for me) but I'm just a noob when it comes to installation programs and whatnot. So, really, there isn't any worries about installing another OS aye??
That's cool if that's the case. What was that Ciaran that you were saying about no worries if worse case scenario if something isn't installed properly you can "format it"? Sorry, that one flew over my head. Could you ellaborate if you get a chance?? THX.
Plus, is this something I'm assuming that you have to download off the internet to your computer first, right?? And then burn into whatever format (data, cd?? I don't know.) and then throw it into the PS3 i'm guessing?? Are the instructions pretty much straight forward and easy to follow or does it take a lot of computer knowledge to do it properly.
Also, back to the Dragon's Lair 3d (PAL) for the ps2, is there a way I could make a copy of the game and re-format it to a different region code in combination with some kind of program (hack,patch,crack whatever you call it) and somehow get the ps3 to recognize it?? Sorry for the billion noob questions as I'm sure you guys have more important things to attend to. Anyways, let me know if anyone has time and I will try to respond back right away if I'm still on my computer.
:humped: :dry: :confused: :PC:
Questions of the day....when ya get time....
Alright, wondering about emulation. Do you think that the PS3 will eventuall be able to emulate up to the XBOX 360?? I heard rumors a while back before I bought the PS3. This guy I talked with told me that the PS3 was powerful enough that it could emulate all the way up to that (assuming people figure out a way how).
I don't know, what do you think?? Sound too unrealistic, not possible at all, or just wishful thinking for now? I love my PS3 but sometimes, I miss playing mario or want to play frickin' "Dead rising". I can't tell you how bad and for how long I've been wanting to play that game.
*Sigh*.......oh well. Oh, and is there ever going to be another OS besides linux or what? I'm tempted to install it but, I'm just afraid of something bad happening to my PS3.
I also got an Iphone that I want to hack and get emulators as well!! I can't wait to see what the Iphone's capable of handling with it's processors for games!! Although with the touchpad it'll be kinda funky!!!
