Yabasic (for the PS2)

I found Yabasic as an extra for a PS2 demodisc, and i recently dug it out from my Ps2 pile. it is a fun and simple piece of software for creating small programs, in which you type a command (eg. print, input, goto, beep etc.) and then a piece of text. here is a code for a simple number guess program, sorry for mistakesREM Number guess gameprint "I am thinking of a number between 1 and 50, try to guess it!"input a$if (a$>13) thenprint "your number was larger than mine!"goto inputendifelseif (a$<13) thenprint "your number was smaller than mine!"goto inputendifelseif (a$=13) thenprint "My number was 13! Congratulations, you win!"Feel free to edit the prints, and the number doesn't have to be 13. there are other things involving string variables and other commands. heres one called identitiy finderREM Identity finder programPrint "What is your name?" :":input a$Print "How old are you, ",a$,"?" :":Input b$Print "And where do you live, ",a$,"?" :":Input c$Print "so your name is ",a$,", you are ",b$," years old and you live in ",c$,", correct?"Pause 5Feel free to add more string variables, just add them as d$, e$, f$ etc.anyway, post coding for more yabasic programs, and use the stuff above!

I would like to know if anybody has ever modded a game controller to deliver a mild electric shock like this instead of vibrating. i would assume all it would take is to remove the the motor and wire in a transformer with contacts on the outer casing. if my theory in right please comment with any improvements you may have or if anyone has ever done this before please give exact instructions. all help is greatly  appreciated.

Portable speakers in a PS2 Controller?

Using 2x2cm and 2x4cm speakers (4speakers total) preferably with a basic crossover and 4xAAA batteries and a 3.5mm jack for input. Perhaps a volume switch too (presumably this is a simple matter of a variable resistor. I have an idea of what speakers to use... two emac speakers and two 2cm Mylar speakers from maplins. Any help on what components I need ie. amps and capacitors would be great, or pushes in the right direction at least. thanks alot Matt

How to connect a PS2 to an old tv

I'm new to Instructables and not sure if i'm posting in the right area. So,i do not mean to irritate anyone. Anyway, i have an old tv with only an antenna jack in the back and wish to connect my PS2 to it. I have tried already using a tv adapter used for the atari and a rca splitter. I connected the video and left sound to one end of the splitter, and plugged the other end into the coaxial plug for the atari. I then screwed the atari adapter to the antenna jack on the tv. I get a distorted image on my tv in bright colors, but no sound. Any ideas or tips on building a converter or adapter would be great.

Guitar Hero Drums Mod for PS2?

I have Guitar Hero III for playstation2 and I don't want to get rock band. I know the Rock Band drums don't work for guitar hero. Maybe i could take apart a Guitar hero controller and make it into a drum set. I want it to be able to wammy and use star power (maybe pedals or something). and i want to be able to press 3 buttons at the same time (another pedal?). I also want to be able to hit it repeatedly to hold a note (like in rock band). I guess it should "strum" automatically when i hit a note. I don't have any idea on how to make it, but i know it's possible, and that there is a simple way of doing it. it doesn't have to look nice. it should just work. Anyway, I hope someone could help me out and make an Instructable or a youtube video or something. I'm sure many others would love to do it. thanks, schetleft

can i reuse/rebuild a ps2 that cant read cds to play music from a usb drive?

What i want to do is have the ps2 capable of playing music off of a USB drive, simple enough, right? maybe some visualizations, i dont really care so long as it plays music. i want to be able to do it without having to buy anything other than flash drives (which i already have) i can do any solder work needed to make it work, but i dont want to have to buy a ps2 hard drive caddy to be able to do it. i am asking because i have a ps2 that cannot read cds (the laser diode is burned out and the disc loader is unstable (system vibrates when tries to read a cd) and i cant bear to just throw it away and we've already bought a replacement ps2. this is the phat ps2. is it possible or am i just crazy?

game varieties Answered

Here's my situation. I got Call of Duty: Special Editon 3 for the ps2 after playing the Xbox 360 version because I loved the multiplayer mode. But when my ps2 game arrived, it was only playable in single or online. I have close to dial-up internet. I have a Wii, Ps2, DS lite and Computer, So I was thinking about just selling it and buying it again for the wii. But I don't know if it has multiplayer (local). I could also get a newer call of duty. My last option is selling my ps2 and it's 14+ games and buying an Xbox 360. What should I do?
