Playing PS2 games in true 16:9 widescreen!

Post by GhettoBeta59 » Sun May 20, 2012 8:22 pm

Nowadays, people really don't care about the PS2 scene. But this discovery will probably get you some extra hours back on it. Recently, PCSX2 introduced widescreen patches for games to work in the emulator, causing the image to change from 4:3 to 16:9 by adding more image to the left and right. You can now do this using the same patches with a softmodded PS2 and CodeBreaker (or any other code device).

I attached some images showing off the hack.

If you have an HD TV you can also hook up a component cable to the PS2, it really looks nice.

You can now edit the game directly with a hex editor to make it permanently 16:9 without any use of cheating device!!!

That's good! :) No more stretched images and no more guessing what's on the left & what's on the right. ;)

This website was made by nemesis2000 who basically discovered that hex editing the widescreen was possible: http://www.ps2wide.net/

All of his hex addresses are here. All you have to do is make an image of your game, change the original addresses to the ones listed, and then use the image on PCSX2 or a PS2 loader (such as Open PS2 Loader or PS2ESDL).

ps2 gaming is probably the best value in the world now..

you can pick up second hand ps2s and games by the box full for peanuts.

plus it's an extra dvd player!

The PlayStation 2 is the most popular game console ever, & there's still more than half of the world's gamers who still game on it.
