Yes, I know I need a mod to play the games themselves)
What I am concerned about is actually the picture. There are a lot of good games that came out in Europe but not here like:
Resident Evil Survivor 2
Virtua Cop Elite
Gregory Horror Show
Alone in the Dark 4
Metal Slug 3
and the upcoming Sonic Gems
Usually when I play a PAL game on my NTSC tv(s), 3 different effects occur.
1. TV, Game, and System freeze and turn to black
2. Game runs, but it skips repeatdly down the screen.
3. Game runs, but it has border plus is black and white.
now, I know that one can patch a DVDR of the game to make it NTSC compatible, but usually that leaves a big black border on the screen. (which would suck with VC-E, since its a lightgun game) and besides, I would really like to own the actual legit copies. (and yes, I know there japanese versions, but I'd prefer english text)
I've heard of a cable in which would turn the PAL signal into a NTSC one. Is this true? Or perhaps, is there a bootdisk (as with PSone) that will force the NTSC signal nomatter what?
Any advice is appreciated. thanks
