Hello all, Gryffen here and its been too long, I joined quite a long time ago and unfortunately haven't very active but none the less on with the thread. I have some questions about modding my PS2. The Model number says SCPH-30001 r and the date code says 1C. My questions are after some research on Free McBoot are playing my backups of my .Hack// games(The original games have since been burnt by the laser over hundreds of hours of play from my brother and I.), I keep seeing there being issues with Free McBoot running it from hard drive and disks, Q1: Has anyone else run into freezing/ lack of audio, and just not working with such games. Q2: If I get a mod chip would it be able to play the games flawlessly. Q2.5: What mod chips would be good for my PS2 model?
