Re: [PS2] PlayStation BB Unit (PS2 Hard Drive)

Okay, did a bit of research and it looks like I'll need a FreeMcBoot memory card (to run homebrew), the "Open PS2 Loader" program (which seems to be the most recently updated one; to play games off the hard drive), a SATA adaptor (because no more IDE/don't want to use unreliable old HDDs),...

[PS2] PlayStation BB Unit (PS2 Hard Drive)

Anyone here use hard drives with your PS2? Whether it's the internal official 40GB Sony hard drive (that requires the network adaptor) or external hard drive that I think connects via USB. How is yours set up? Which is the best way? Any word on the failure rate of PS2 hard drives? Are there any majo...

Re: Translation help please!

And here's the reply: FMT-DP535以降の機種は直接接続可能です。TOWNSディスプレイは音声入力対応ではないのでX68000やPC9801シリーズを接続するときに精神衛生状のことを考え、音声配線をなしにしてあります。またタウンズディスプレイに直接接続ですと、幾つかのX68000の15khzのゲームに対応できないものが出てきてしまいますので、出品ケーブルを使用することで解消できます。 Direct connections are possible with monitor models FMT-DP535 and later. As for the TOWNS dis...

Re: Translation help please!

Unfortunately, I am neither a Japanese computer or Japanese language pro so I can't offer any advice in that regard. However, the next best thing I can (barely) do is to ask your question to the seller himself: はじめまして。すみませんが、この文が分かりません:「接続ケーブルが必要ないけど精神衛生上の機種」。接続ケーブルがFMT-DP535などと使用できないというわけですか? それとも、...

Re: The emulation thread...

It's probably been years since I delved into anything emulation so I have a question: Seeing as how a home console port is a near impossibility, what's the emulation status of any of the Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune games?

If you received the email a few hours ago, then you know the current situation. There is little I can do to help so the only thing I can offer is my sympathies and wish GP luck in his life. Those of us who have been using GP's services will now need to find an alternative. Since Gamengai has served ...

Re: [PSP to TV] Controller Adapter Max -Wild Fire Gaming Doc

I think I got it to work in CFW somehow...have to go home and check my unit. If by any chance you remember how you got it working on CFW, that'd be great if you could let me know. As it is, my PSP2000 doesn't work with batteries anymore so I have no way to change it from CFW to Official Firmware (s...

A few weeks ago, Shou said (to me in a PM) that the Controller Adapter Max can rarely be found anymore (in stores I presume he meant) but when they could be found in stores, then they were 7000 yen or more in used condition. They're in similarly short supply on Amazon JP and Y!JA where they are abou...

It seems you're the only person I know of on the Internet that owns one so it should only be appropriate that you answer my query. Anyway, excellent re: voltages.

Yeah, I saw your 3DStoTV / Contra derailment thread a while ago. The Vita is new to me though.
