    The best way is obviously a mod-chip. You can also get one of those Caetla clone game enhancers. They are sometimes referred to as a plug mod. If you happen to have a GS/AR Pro, you can flash it with AR stop to load backups, but you lose the Vmem on the cart of you do it. Then there is the breaker pro. It's a swap disk. And finally, there is the old school swap trick.

    Note that some games will not work right with a plugmod (or any other method that uses a swap trick). Some games will run but without music while others will crash or not work at all. If you have a Gameshark or AR you don't need to buy a plugmod. You just use a spring or some other method of holding the lid sensor down. Then you just boot up the cheat disc and it will stop spinning then swap with your copy.

    All the swap methods will have the same compatibility because they don't modify any signal inside of the Playstation. They just make it so they Playstation first reads a legitimate Playstation disc and then stop the drive from spinning so you can swap with your copy.

    not everyone has the pc hardware to run playstaion games on the pc, and it's more comfortable to be sitting in a comfy chair and playing than playing on a small pc monitor.

    They have them at consolesource.com but you're SOL if you live in the US since they won't ship there anymore. They must have been caught one too many times by customs. [​IMG]

    While I agree a TV is often nicer I seem to recall Bleem running OK and that came on floppy discs which means about 8 years ago at least.

    Yeah, most everybody has decent enough hardware to emulate PSX these days.
