Re: Good wireless psx/ps2 controllers?

There are some third-party PS2 wireless controllers. Not great quality and some features absent, pressure sensitive buttons work as binary on/off, some disconnects if more than a few meters away. Still, not a horrible experience as they do work and maybe worth picking one up as they run only ~$10 on...

Hilarious comment this morning by gf...

Just a random bit... got up this morning with girlfriend - both a little hungover. I got up first and decided to let her sleep in and so started playing some Destruction Derby on the PS... She wakes up... stairs at the screen and proclaims "WTF is this? This looks like the ghetto'est game system, wh...

Re: Playstation SCPH-1001 Laser

... Anyway, I took the easy way out and ordered a DTL-H1101, which the seller guarantees fully to work. The added attraction of an external DC power supply, both for longevity and to allow me to return with it to Europe without any surgery required, was the icing on the cake. Just an FYI, I have a ...

Re: Extract 3D models/Tools

Extremely popular. I find Sony used more SGI machines for modeling though. Depends how complex the game was they were working on however. Today you can use 3D Studio MAX. I'd heard about some early Blender support for the PSX also... and after doing some digging in their source bin found this: http...

Re: Playstation SCPH-1001 Laser

You can get a new laser assembly off of eBay relatively cheap. If you really want to lower the heat output from the PSU, you need to replace the regulator with a higher wattage one. Replacing the voltage regulator... thats a really good idea, one I wish I'd thought up. Perhaps Ill do that and add a...

Playstation SCPH-1001 Laser

Hi everyone, I'm curious if anyone here has had any luck in fixing the worn out laser issue on early PSX models. I've read some of the guides and different approaches (i.e. http://dogbreath.de/PS1/LaserAlignment/Laser.html and http://miked50.tripod.com/repair.htm) and am wondering if it's worth the ...
