Patching Games to NTSC


There are three steps to patching a game from PAL to NTSC.

1)Make an ISO file of the game
2)Patch the ISO file
3)Burn the patched ISO file

1)Make an ISO file of the game
a)Download and install DVD Decrypter
b)Run DVDDecrypter.exe
c)Select Mode-->Iso-->Read
d)For the Source, choose the dvd drive that has the game in it.
e)For the Destination, select a location to save the ISO file.
f)Select File-->Decrypt. This will now create the ISO for the game.

2)Patch the ISO file
***You can download it here:
b)Run ps2_pal2ntsc_yfix.exe
c)Click Browse and select the iso file of the game
d)Select 48 as the Y-Fix offset. You cannot have it perfectly centered because the PAL signal has more lines or resolution than the NTSC signal does. This is as close as you can get. You can raise the offset if you need to see more of the bottom of the screen or you could lower the offset if you want to see more of the top of the screen.
e)I choose to uncheck Make PN Selector
f)Click PATCH FILE. The following screen will pop up.
g)This means that the elf file of the game was backed up to your hard drive. Just click ok and exit the program.

3)Burn the patched ISO file
a)Run DVDDecrypter.exe
b)Select Mode-->Iso-->Write
c)For the Source, locate your patched ISO file. The program patches and overwrites your orignal ISO file. Select your orignal ISO file.
e)For the Destination, select the dvd drive you wish to burn the game.
f)Select your prefered write speed
g)Select File-->Write. This will now burn the game.

For cd-rom games, I suggest using burnatonce.

Using burnatonce 0.99.5 -
Create an ISO File
Select Read/Copy-->Read to Image. Click ok and save as ISO Image File type.

Burn an ISO File
Select File-->Load New Image. Load and burn the ISO Image File. The program patches and overwrites your orignal ISO file. Select your orignal ISO file.

If that patch method doesn't work, try the ADR Patcher. This has no y-fix option, so the screen will be a little off center. You can see if the game has an option in the menu for screen adjustment.

1)Download adr patcher:
Just save the link to your hard drive. Then, right click on it and select Open With-->Choose Program-->Winrar Archiver. Then click extract to and extract the files to your hard drive.

2)Run adr_patcher.exe

3)Click browse and select the iso file of the game


5)Select Begin Search.

6)The program will search for locations to patch the game. When it finishes, patch the file.

7)Burn the patched .iso file


1)How can I tell if the game is PAL?
The game will be displayed in Black and White and the screen will roll around.

2)Can every game be patched?
Most games have been sucessful, but some games wont work.

3)Is there any other alternative if patching is unsucessful?
Boot a copy of Swap Magic 3. After it loads, eject it. Insert the PAL game. Let it read the new TOC. Select NTSC on screen, then press the SQUARE BUTTON for special boot.
