    You'll need a program called ps2_pal2ntsc_yfix (google it), it will convert the pal game to ntsc, so you can play it on you nstc ps2.

    Also swap discs to make it boot.

    since most console games are originally designed for japan or usa (both are ntsc countries) and then converted for pal countries, SOME pal region ps2 games have an option built in to use their original ntsc display mode. this is basically provided as a courtesy to pal region users whose tvs also support ntsc, so they can play the game at a higher refresh rate (ntsc = 60hz, pal = 50hz). i dunno how common this is among pal ps2 games, but it is a nice option to have, i guess.

    but yeah i think in general you would have to resort to patching, and at best it will fix the color and center the video image... but you will end up losing a little bit off the edges of the screen because pal has a slightly higher resolution than ntsc and ps2 patches can't do anything to change that. if you have an ntsc-only television, it really is preferable to stick to games that officially support ntsc.

    100% of TVs these days play both PAL and NTSC

    I really can't understand it its a pain in the ass PAL and NTSC for a start PAL is better quality picture.

    and us PAL gamers which are 70% of the world only excluding Japan US and Canada either have to wait 1 extra month for a dam game to be converted (which gets delayed another month normally ) eg GT4 or releasing EPSN football the week the super bowl is on thats what??? 8 months old rosters the season is over!! OMG Ricky Williams is still on the rosters!! or they don't bother to release the game too us at all!! grrrrrrr

    Its delayed cause Japan and US are the top 2 selling countries.
