Hey, I'm sorry to come in here with such noob questions, but I was hoping for some clarity. In everyone's opinion, is compatibility and performance better overall when just using a mod chip and CDr's? I have HDloader on my PS2 and as long as I patch the PS2 games, I don't really run into any issues at all. Also, is there a basic, step-by-step guide for installing POPStarter on a PS2 that already has FreeMcBoot and HDLoader installed? Every tutorial I found was really unclear and made it seem as if playing PS1 games via a PS2 HDD is more trouble then it's worth. Any clarity on this would be appreciated.
