    hi guys

    i just recieved my component cables for the PS2 and been giving them a try - my first problem is G-Darius for the PSX doesn't seem to display (worked fine on composite before) i get the PSX sony logo on boot up but the image goes when the game itself boots up (sound is still works).

    i know it's a standard problem but is there a homebrew fix? (wishful thinking i know, but might as well ask)

    also is there a compatibility list for PSX games on a PS2 (component)

    you need to go into the menu setting on the ps2 and switch to component instead of composite before you play any games.

    hmmm, it's either the game you are playing, (is it patched with something) or does the ps2 have any modchip installed? maybe there is settings that is conflicting with it?

    or you can try to find a breaker pro, that usually has display options for ps1 games, only problem is they are hard to find now.

    btw do you have a slim or a fatty? + what version is it

    only way you are going to play this game is if you have a old ps1 and use that.

    i think you're getting the wrong end of the stick, the game works fine on the PS2 via composite cables (at least on mine anyway) - it's the component cables giving me issues

    I think it's your TV. My neighbor's vizio won't display psx games through component but on my 32 inch samsung it plays fine.
