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?

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!

Coin operated PS2?

I want to create a PS2 (slim) based fee paying game room for kids, but I want to make it coin operated. I want to use a MOSFET transister switch like this one http://brunningsoftware.co.uk/FET.htm which also doubles as a timer. The coin handling mechanism is the easy part, so dont bother about that.My problem is where to connect the MOSFETswitch in the PS2 console. My first idea was to connect one switch to each of the controllers ( to enable/ disable the controller's power supply on pin 5) but I understand the controller port is part of the PS2 motherboard and new electronic components cant be fitted there (true or false?). If true where else can I fix the switch in such a way that when a game is finished a new game cant be started without feeding in a coin?Any Ideas?

A TRICK FOR ONLINE GAMMERS

Wanna know how to disappear and become invisible in an online game such as KILLZONE,SOCOM,....... Racing games.......(the list goes on and on.....) You will need: Ethernet Cable Small Switch Gaming system (online compatible( ps2,ps3,wii,xbox,xbox 360,) ( must be connected with a wire WIFI wont work Online Game All you have to do is cut the orange wire on the inside of the cable and put a switch there. then put the switch in the of position when you want to disappear. NOTICE: This may not work with all games. this only lasts about 7-10 seconds and then you are disconnected from the network. It is just like unplugging it but it is easier. ????: Why is there 8 wires in cat six (maybe its cat five) cable and olny four of them are used ? (waste of coper and bpa releasing plastic) Would have made an instructable but its not worth it. Yes cheating is weak I just like the disappearing part You don't disappear but nobody can see you

Looking for a reason that my PS2 game CD won't play anymore - (isn't scratched at all)

"User1877" I just can't figure it out... I need tech-assistance on why my PS2 game won't run anymore.  Details: 1). It's not scratched, but when I put it in the game system...; 2). The "PlayStation 2" Bios Screen comes up -- then nothing after that... just a black screen.  3). Also: I hear the CD game spinning - at which I've tried "fast disc speed" and letting it play at Normal Disc Speed, too; only to find out it's going to do the same thing every time.  The name of the game is "Shadow The Hedgehog".  That game was originally out on the Nintendo GameCube in the mini-disc format; but, then in 2005 - it came out in the PS2 3" format.*  So - (Question: What do I do)?  Providing the details, what can be done - (do I have to buy another copy of the game, or can it be restored, somehow?)  Someone - please, tell me.

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.

How can I get my Sony PlayStation2 Game Saves Transfered to my Laptop?

NO I DO NOT WANT TO MAKE A FLASH DRIVE OUT OF MY PS2 MEMORY CARD!!  What i want to do is maybe create an adapter that will plug my ps2 memory card directly to my laptop by USB?? like if possible a total plug & play type hack...  Be able to transfer my game saves to my laptop and also transfer other saves from my laptop back to the ps2 memory card so that it will still work and play when i go back to playing a game on the Sony PlayStation2.  Kinda like how i can plug my Verizon LG cellular phone from its charging port with the USB wall wart adapter to my laptop port and i can straight up just move/copy/transfer files around instantly and it still functions. **I've bought a PS2/PS3 memory card adapter unit from store and it did nothing, I tried on my friends PS3 to see if anything can be done there. thought for what I want/NEED it to do it WON'T so thats just a waste.  I've also seen somewhere someone posted a simple hack of a PS2 controller pinout to some other PC Port dunno if maybe can do similar for my purpose... pic included..

Playstation 2 Joystick (totally removed) connecting to Arduino UNO board...etc.

Hello all... Been working on this for a while now.  I purchased a generic playstation 2 (ps2) gaming pad, hand or controller (your preference).  I completely removed BOTH the joysticks from the unit as the native state of how they were, would not work for the project.  I DO NOT want wireless, and that first off is all I am finding online. My question is this: WHERE do I connect the SEL (My understanding is this is where the pushbutton operation of the joystick would be wired) Do I connect the SEL of the breakout board to the actual Arduino, or do I connect it to the breadboard.   To both, just give me a location as in 3 thru 13, A0 through A5, Now then, I have power, ground, left (left3), right (right3) figured out. Am I totally off my mark, I have attached my fritzing diagram as a jpg with notes to assist. For reference purposes please see these links for further info: Breakout board:  https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9110 Joysticks: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9032 Thanks  in advance Tony

Ideas for a playstation 2 wireless microphone

Hi, I was recently given a wireless microphone for a ps2 game called dance UK. The person I got it from didn't want it and I thought it might be useful(I'm a junk collector ;D) it plugs into the controller port and the scart adapter, it seems to draw 12v from the ps2 for the transmitter, has an input cable for the microphone and an output cable to the scart adapter. On the scart adapter there is also a jack for an external speaker. Finally after some thinking about what it needs the controller port for; I decided it might be for volume control (it also says volume control on the bottom :P) Does anybody have any ideas as to what I could use this for? (I don't mind rigging it as long as it's not TOO much)
