    Was digging though my old things the other day and found a old ps1. The small version. Was thinking about modding this lil legion but where i did a search i cannot find anything. Anyone know for any tips on certain sites?

    I believe you can make them but http://www.eurasia.nu/shop/default.php?cPath=52 has a few. You might still be able to find some of the swap discs and AR serial port devices but I would not spend too long.

    I will say though USB to PS controller adapters are cheap and emulation has been great for years.

    If you have the PS One you can do a double swap thats what I do. search you tube for video on how to do it.

    Also thanks for the link. I might just get one just to lower the boot time.

    i don't care about ording out of the country. Modchip.ca is way over priced. they jacks up prices about 3 times th amount they bought it for and then you got to pay for shipping on top of that which should be letter mail and cost 2 bucks. The wost thing about them though is if you leave a review on line about they store they will hound you down and almost make u change it.

    I had the same problem one year ago.
    I found this french guide
    http://christophe.mahe.free.fr/PSX/psxpuce.htm

    so I bought a PIC, programmed it and mounted successfull.

    You can find the PIC for less than 2 euro.
    I had a Pickit3 programmer but you can also build one, there are many projects around

    shadow, i sugest you ignore the ps1 [​IMG], you said you had a ps2, and also softmodded well, theres a kind of swamp magic for ps2 that runs only ps1 games, its called breaker Pro and runs the ps1 games backups perfectly on your ps2 if i was you i would go for that [​IMG]
