Originally posted by SOKI'm trying to build up a collection of good import games for my PS2, and that includes some decent PSone games I've missed, like Tobal 2...the original rocked, and I'm anxious to get number 2...
How can I get foreign PSone games to work on my American PS2?
I don't believe that there's a way to do it without a modchip, and even then you might also need a Gameshark/Action Replay depending on the make of your chip.
You might be better off buying a PS1 and using a backup method on it (chip, plug-in gizmo, or someone might've (finally) developed a boot-disc without my knowing). It's easier than modding a PS2, and lower risk (since PSOnes are pretty cheap).
You DO NOT WANT to miss out on Tobal 2.
Alternative #2: the ePSXe emulator plays Tobal 2 nicely on a PC, and you can either buy a PSX-design-knockoff joypad or use an adaptor to hook up a real PSX controller.

I know this is not a new game, but I just got it a few weeks ago. Anyway, I am all the way to the final level of Half Life 2, and the picture continues to freeze up. The sound continues, but the picture freezes.
