i did a "gamble" mod recently to see if the ps2 fat can run without a Dvd drive, if it does, I'm going to make it into a ps2p.
i removed it, and booted the system with freemcboot on memory card one and it worked
so, I'm making it into a fat portable free mcboot with loading games from USB drive.
here are my pics of the system dissembled down to the board with the various parts:
it'll be made from cardboard case, with wall power (and possibly batteries!?).
this is my 7inch screen i told ya all about with my other li po good battery that i have taped up in pvc black tape.
with the battery shown, here is my semi, portable ps2, the screen will go on the bottom of the portable, the battery will go on it's side that the battery is on like in my previous pic, also is my setup safe and good? any good/useful/helpful info is needed/welcome
and here is my bad battery opened up to show the inside.
so, that's at. all i need is your info/feedback/ useful help/beast tips and I'm almost finished with making my portable.
also, portable has no DD drive, runs on freemcboot, and games via usb on OPL v0.8.
everyone, i charged my screen and it worked
the battery charged like normal, red light charging and when finished it went green
screen battery charging:
battery case (i had a small GBA candy thing a friend gave me from austral from grade 4) so i used this for the battery case, taped it etc and it works awesomely
screen battery charging complete , battery powers screen for 2 hours
yay. also indicates when battery is nearly finished and ready to charge again
my setup (pic's kinda unclear) anyways, I'm using a 7inch screen, really good qalaty, av input/output. great for ps2/gc
testing screen with gameplay from FF XII via usb drive on OpenPS2Loader V0.8!!!
aslo, so happy about system modded working fully and screen modded and fully working!!!!!
this means.... i only need to get the special ps2 controller for my portable and then it'll be complete
oh yeah, my own ps2 portable i built, yay and a fat, my original ps2p was going to be a slim, but i wretched it but plugging in an v8.5 battery etc firing the system
here are some pictures of my ps2p in it's current state, (nearly complete, all i need is the ps2 controller)
i added the AV screen cable and PS2 AV cables with RCA jack thing on the back of my ps2p with lots of LOGO tape and celotape.
will add the RCA jack, but need to get controller first and add that on the back too before i secure the back fully.
hay everyone, i found out the problem which my screen's color.
i used the screen from a PD700 unit on the board of a PD7000 unit, so the color is not like this:
which is the correct color,
but it looked like this instead:
tried fixing it by adjusting contrast/brightness/color nothing
so i threw that screen away and went to my local store and bought another PD7000D unit for 100 Euros:
now, color's like normal.
yes, i know stupid mistake mixing a screen of a different model with a different motherboard unit
hay guys, more updates for everyone on my ps2p progress!!!
current system state(updated with screen):
and i finally got the 64GB usb i wanted/needed for playing my games via OPL 0.8/0.7
my amazon order of the usb never came, even after i tried contacting and asking the seller to help fix the problem, but i went to my local computer store and bought myself a Turbo X 64GB uSB flash drive for 69.00 Euro
now i can put all my ps2 converted games on it and play via OPL
and i figured out a cool name for my portable, instead of it being called "Fatty Ps2 portable"
it is now called:
Fat Boy Benny PS2 Portable!!!!
what inspired me to give it this name is the charater Benny from Phat Beach, awesome black movie, 2001. love it
it's so funny, check it out if you haven't heard/seen it at all, it's good
1) fat cause benny is fat, also the ps2 model i have goes into the Fat category of the ps2 family,
2) boy cause beeny is a man, anyways, boy from gameboy, no specific reason,
yeah, now my fat boy ps2p has a new screen fully working, and 64gb usb for loading all my games and an official name
