Is there something like that on the PS2's ESR or OPL?
Update: Okay a tried a pal game on OPL and it worked. Still wondering if it would work on ESR though because I don't want to waste a DVD....
ESR also bypasses the game region check of the PS2, since the mechacon chip that performs this check 'believes' such a disc to be a region-free DVD-Video movie, thanks to the ESR patch on the disc. That is why ESR works at all.
So the game region is completely ignored in the booting of any game using ESR.
