Re: CRTGAMER Wanted to Buy: UK PAL Game

Actually shipping to my location from the UK is not 1.99 but 2.99 since it's overseas. However, the game did get cheaper by 0.03 since yesterday! Massive saving! 8)
I bought it, should be with me in a few days unless the UK gets snowed in again.
Anyway, you can pay me the exact amount (less than $20 for sure) once I know how much the shipping is. It's up to you. It's no trouble.
THANKYOU! :mrgreen:

I just sent U.S. 20.00 to your PayPal EMail account, PM sent with my address. The few extra dollars a thankyou for taking the time.

If the game doesn't have a built in 60hz option, I have Swap Magic which should allow me to boot the PAL game in NTSC. Eventually I'll burn a converted disc. I have done this before with PS1 PAL Twinsen, losing just a little of the top and bottom of the Game Screen. The idea is to install the PAL to NTSC converted game in HDAdvance.

Looking forward to playing the Millionaire game with the Buzz Controllers. Not a great fan of Trivia games, but an easy intuitive type of game when having over non gamer friends and relatives. I don't know why the U.S. version didn't offer this option. Well, Buzz did originate in Europe. My fading hope is all the U.S. PSX Millionaire releases will eventually get a PS2 update with the Buzz controllers.

The PS2 wired Buzz octopus, a trade off over 8 AA batteries in the wireless version. 16 batteries if going eight players, I have eight Christmas light tangled controllers. :lol:

I actually realised the other day that a building I've walked by dozens of times in Brighton town centre was the Relentless studios office (the guys who make Buzz). After looking it up, we apparently have Blackrock studios (Split/Second), Kuju's Zoe Mode (Crush), and a couple of others in Brighton too. I didn't realise it was such a popular place for developers.

Mad Katz is right in my area. Interesting trophy display inside with unusual accessories.

Maybe you can bang on the door of Relentless Studios for me and put a tease in for more U.S. contracts. :lol: Anything besides Disney Think Fast. This can be a great controller with a You Don't Know Jack series or the U.S. Millionaire game show.

If I get a 3rd Buzz controller set, a tempting hardware mod?
Lot of work for just a few games, would require four gutted PSX controllers.

Re: CRTGAMER Buy Sale: nothing now, thanks for game Hateshinai.

Just received the PAL Millionaire game in the mail, thank you Hateshinai.
Left you positive feedback here.

An update from one of the vendors at Amazon:
http://www.diskgiant.co.uk
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/browse.html? ... R35DN8EGZS

In response to your email, we currently do not ship to America but should be setting up accordingly to do so around January/February 2011 as it's something we have discussed doing before.
I am sorry we could not send you the game at this time but hopefully we could be shipping to you very soon.
Happy Holidays!
Probably not thru Amazon, but at least later on an International sales source of PAL games. :D

I am installing the game right now thru HDAdvance NTSC, I have a feeling there is no built in 60hz mode. Swap Magic works but only two answer choices appears on the screen due to screen stretch. I expected part of the screen would be cutoff, so some tweaking will need to be made.

Good news is the Buzz controllers work great! :mrgreen:

I'll have to create a new disc converting PAL to NTSC for an install. I'll just set the screen high to have all four answer choices appear. I have already done this with the PAL PS1 game Little Big Adventure. I'll post a new Guide on PAL NTSC conversions once I get the bugs worked out.

Bah Wah Ha Ha Ha!

Got the PAL to NTSC conversion to work, moved up the cutoff answer screen a up few notches. :mrgreen:

The Pal converted to NTSC screen corrected DVD+R works with Swap Magic as a boot disc in Normal Boot Mode. Now to get the HDAdvance install to work, problems reading the DVD+R in my first PS2. I may have to go the Ethernet cable route using the PC ISO. My other PS2 is now installing the DVD+R.

EDIT
Game now installed and works with HDAdvance! A PAL game properly converted and screen moved for NTSC! Cleaned the other PS2 laser eye, game is also installing on my other PS2. This saves trouble of swapping the PS2 hard drives around.

In playing the U.K. Millionaire game a couple England specific questions popped up. Thats okay, adds to the tricky trivia, overall the questions are not just for U.K. knowledge. I can now play Millionaire with the Buzz controllers! (The U.S. NTSC release doesn't support Buzz)

This is a good party game (now Buzz capable) for all my non-gamer relatives. :mrgreen:

I thought I was limited to Japanese imports due to bad screen cropping!
