Well, now I really want to undo the hideous, decade old modding job on my PS2

Petey4335:But but, i just took apart my PS2 to adjust the laser height just so mrs.4335 and I could play Gauntlet: Dark Legacy.

Nice! I think I found out my drive was hosed due to Gauntlet:Seven Sorrows (which is full of the edge-lord schlock but is still also a fun co-op). I do not miss disc-based gaming.

I Like Bread: The PS2 homebrew scene had real promise but by the time emulation was in an acceptable state, I'd already bought a Raspberry Pi. I don't use my PS2 any more; I ripped all my games to play on my PC at 720p. I suppose if I ever get around to transferring the dozens of custom maps I made from my memory cards, I'd sell it.


But but, i just took apart my PS2 to adjust the laser height just so mrs.4335 and I could play Gauntlet: Dark Legacy.Blue discs no longer worked. No blue disc. No gauntlet.

/said PS2, gauntlet, and 4 tapper were bought on our way back to our apartment the night after we were married with just opened that afternoon wedding cash.
