    Okay I'm going to guide you through this the best way I know how - by having you change it back while blind.

    Turn on the system with nothing in the tray so it will load into the dashboard. Press DOWN and then X. Hit DOWN, DOWN, DOWN then X then LEFT then X again.

    I tried googling but can't really find a specific VGA cable for the PS2 but rather a vga converter box that works for multiple console. (so I guess in that case it's ps2 composite/component to the box thingy and then vga.. but it's still composite/component comming out of the PS2's butt instead of true VGA)



    I also found this.

    looks interesting u seem to boot your system with this and it gets your PS2 to render in HDTV resolution or something..

    anyone heard of it before?

    Its popular opinion that the PS3 is just not worth the money or effort right now. Please get your facts right, the big picture is provided by many, not by a few.

    The Playstation 2 is often heralded as the best last gen console here and is a recommended buy due to its fantastic library. We frown on giving support to Sony out of blind ignorance. If there is any reason for there being so much negative feedback on the company's actions. It's their fault. We buy the Xbox 360 for its titles are excellent as when compared to the competition.

    Speaking for the entire forum like that is rude and insulting. If you would like to have a cavalier attitude, please attempt to do it in a frank manner. Not one that attempts to dislodge the quality of the technical support given here. Please do not say you are only joking, for you are disrespecting the threadstarter by doing so. That joke was neither in good taste nor fun but of ignorance. Further assuming that the Xbox 360 was compared to the PS2 leaves you further in the dust.

    a) As for PS3, IMHO it's a very good value for Blu-Ray player.
    b) What facts? I was being sarastic about large number of threads trashing PS3 and Sony in general, because it is Sony regardless of equipment quality and technical specs.

    Actually I was pretty sure thread starter would understand that I was joking in reference to those threads. I ma pretty sure he read an was participating in some of them. I am not saying he ws bashing BTW, I wouldn't be writing that here in that case.

    Lets say someone came in and asked you a question.


    A serious one.


    Then you respond in the most off-the-wall fashion with a relatively off-topic answer. Go on to advise him in a non-serious manner on how to best deal with his problem, in the most illogical manner possible.

    You still consider yourself being polite then ?

    When someone asks you a question, you don't kid about an off-topic remark. Something that is not at all related to the subject mentioned. For you to pretty much ask understanding from the threadstarter is already overstaying your welcome.


    I merely pointed out you were not being polite. And yes, you gathered information and then gave your views on the forum's general opinion. Then proceed to draw an unfounded conclusion. In all aspects, you spoke for the forum as a correspondent. Which pretty much ended in this rather ungraceful sentence. Yeah, no full stops.

    With all due respect, you are as much at fault as those here who you consider, give Sony an "overtly" bad rapsheet as of now. You came in, spammed, left, then came in again to defend your unfounded actions.

    Bluray ? Please. The general opinion standing here is that the PS3 is not worth the money due to its library of games. Then here you come in with your own opinion. Fine, its your opinion, you have every right and obligation to use it. But that doesn't mean you can use it to judge others. You even brought another factor into the fray to backup an opinion I never asked for.

    As far as Im concerned, that sentence had the IQ of a pea pod.

    I state what happened, you assume somemore. A joke is a joke, except when its not needed.

    Are you serious? So, you're suggesting throwing away PS2 was something he would consider?

    Yes, then and now. How about your postings, do you still consider them appropriate and polite?

    U kid on what U choose. I do the same. So, please... I didn't see a sticky saying "jokes only about thread topics".

    I assumed he understood what the joke was about. And I still don't see any crime in that.

    I made a joke, then I didn't post because I didn't really have input on the subj. According to you that's wrong, I disagree. I replied to your posts trying to explain why I posted, I figured you misunderstood for "malice". Then you reply with more of the same stuff.

    I never asked for you to post, and never asked for your lectures either. As far as I am concerned there was no "fray" per-se, but for some reason you try to stir this thing up.

    As far as I am concerned, joke is still better then taking moralist stance and telling people when to post and what to post. Let alone the questionable politeness of your last post.

    Quote Originally Posted by Transfurzz

    And who decides when it is not needed? Apparently you assume it is you, even though you were not involved.
    With all due respect it is you who assumes too much in this situation.

    To summarize, I don't really have nothing to say or debate with you. If rimmerchant was offended by my post I have no problems apologizing to him, but I am sure he will say so if that was a case.
    I seriously doubt your posts served any positive purpose in this thread, ok, my joke was unnecessary, what you managed is to add 4 more rather inflammatory ones.

    I was wondering why this thread was still going. I don't think there's anything offensive about what Zvi said except for his spelling and grammar.

    It's not like he came in and insulted somebody's mother and ethnicity. It was just a bad joke. Get over it.

    And don't say you're "speaking for the entire forum" when you aren't.
