Ps2 fighters on ps3


#1

I purchased a few older fighters for ps2 off amazon and would like to know the best way to play these with my current setup.

I have a ps2 but no ps2 fightstick.
Also have a PS3 (60gig w/ ps2 chipset) and a dual mod TE

I’ve heard things about lag and such on ps3, so should I :

Get a ps2 stick and play on the ps2?
Is there an adapter to use my TE on ps2?
Play on ps3 with TE stick?

Searched and couldn’t find the exact answer I was looking for. Thanks!

if you have a dual mod, then you have a cthulhu right? just wire a ps2 connector to it


#3

360 dual w/chImp


#4

Can’t just wire a PS2 Cable to Cthulhu or ChImp to get PS2 Support.
Only the Multi-Console Cthulhu has that.


#5

Chimp is not MC as far as i know…

What kind of TV are you using? If it’s a standard CRT (fat) TV, and if 2 frames of lag are ok for you, then you should be able to play fighters on your 60GB PS3, and that way you can just use your dual-modded stick. If it’s an HDTV, that opens up a whole new can of worms, but depending on the model of TV, I might be able to help you determine what its inherrent input lag is.

What about the 80gig PS3?


#8

Any PS3 that is compatible with PS2 games has this issue when running PS2 games.


#9

Yeah, it has to do with how the image is processed. Each PS3 will give you a minimum of 2 frames of lag. If you’re on an HDTV, the problem could potentially be exacerbated.

For what it’s worth, 2 frames hardly bugs me, but I would not use it for anything outside casuals.

I specified the 60 gig b/c it’s the only one that doesnt software emulate, it has the actual ps2 chipset inside. It still has the lag issue?

And I play on a 46in sharp aquos lcd, 120hz, 1080p, 4ms response, with hdmi cable


#11

I was wondering the EXACT questions you were. Im glad I found this before I made another thread.

I also have an original 60 gig and was wondering. It seems that in the past my friend couldn’t use the madcatz wireless fight pad on ps2 games, but i haven’t tried my te yet.

I believe that the input lag only comes from the software emulated models, not the original with full backwards compatibility, but someone please correct me if Im wrong.

And, is there a way to use a te on a ps2 without modding?


#12

Super cannot.


#13

so yea, just tried using my te on a ps2 game… does not work.

thought Id let u know nugget


#14

4ms response time has nothing to do with input delay

I know this is a bit off topic, but how good is Street Fighter Alpha 2 on PSN? It’s a PS1 classic. Any lag or shady dealings with the port?


#16

mine does…I found used copies of Alpha Anthology and CvS2, fired them up in the 60 gig ps3 and my stick worked perfect.


#17

deezee989 is right.
The Mad Catz Arcade FightSticks do not work for PlayStation 2 games.

Yours work because you are using a ChImp.


#18

little off topic, but has anyone tried an import ps2 game with a b/c ps3? been wanting to get the japan only darkstalkers anthology but one game isnt enough to get me to buy another system anymore


#19

PS2 region locks are still enforced on PS3, so you’d have to have a Japanese launch PS3 to play it.


#20

is there anyway around this region lock for us ps3 playing jp ps2 games? like a boot loader or magic swap?
