Default How to play PAL games on NTSC PS2

Hey guys got another question. I got a NTSC PS2 but I got a couple of PAL games. I know on the Wii there has a patch to allow PAl games to work on a NTSC wii.

Is there something like that on the PS2's ESR or OPL?

Thanks.

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....

Works with both hard drive and DVD backups (using ESR) just fine. Only original game discs from PAL zones will not play.

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.

Yeah I have no idea what you said except the last sentence. Thanks though, now I know I can burn pal games instead of just throwing them away.
