    This was built from a DataMax case I bought a few years ago, finally found the perfect use for it!

    It's a pretty standard PS2 Portable:
    5.6" screen with RGB using VGA converter to get H/V sync
    Freemcboot 8mb memory card on slot 1
    128mb memory card on slot 2
    USB loading games through OPL
    5amp Lithium ion batteries
    Switching Headphone Jack

    Gman actually has a basement dungeon filled with enslaved children trained to make portables. Thats how he makes them so fast.

    Nice Gman! Looks great.

    Been wanting to make a PS2 portable myself lately.

    Care to show some gut photos?

    Nice!! I've been looking all around different forums and Google etc. to try and find the answer to this but; is there a good thread or something on the subject of hooking up the video "RGB using VGA converter to get H/V sync"? Sorry to ask, I just can't seem to find a straight answer anywhere... been searching for weeks and can only find bits and pieces. I have all the parts to start a PS2p using a PS2 Slim SCPH-79001 system but this eludes me.

    I apologize if I'm asking a stupid question, still more of a "noob" trying to finish up my first GCp now. :)

    I used one of those cheap vga converters for ps2. But as a vga converter, the thing sucks. We just want to use it as a sync seperator. The idea stems from Ashen when he figured it out during his ps2 adventure. Take the RGB signal from the ps2 and wire it straight to the screen. Then take Y svideo output from ps2 and wire it to the Y input on the vga converter. Then you can wire the H/V sync lines from vga converter to your screen. This isn't a perfect solution because the screen momentarily turns off when the image is black like switching from a cutscene. It's barely noticeable but at least the image is beautiful.

    Ahhh, yeah I seen and read over a lot of Ashen's posts for his PS2p but couldn't figure out what he did to finally get it to work, lol!!

    Thanks for helping out, your portable is AWESOME, just hope mine comes out half as good, lol!! :D

    Dang Amazon and their crafty marketing, lol!! My link came out as an ad too... I had to click the "Share" to get it to give me a real link to share.

    Thanks again for your help!! I can't wait to get started on my PS2p project, this has been the biggest hold up for me so far was the VGA video. :)
