Well actually, they are busted up, barebones and janky ports of the PS1 versions.

Which just shows you how badly they messed those up considering how good the PS1 versions are.

I was asking about the X Collection though (since it's listed in the list of 240p PS2 games).

It still suffers from some sound fx issues and the music is streamed but other than that it plays great. The games run in their native resolution but the videos for X3-X6 run in 480i for some reason. One thing to note is every time you get a game over or beat a level you are taken to the memory card save menu which is in 480i. Minor annoyance if using the Framemeister.

Nevermind what I said then. I was speaking about the Anniversary collection

Sounds dreadful, good thing I got the PS1 versions back in 2014.

I would not call this dreadful as it's still the cheapest way to play all 6 games (7 if you count MM B&C) and the emulation is pretty good. Again just like Anniversary Collection the main reason to buy this was because it was the cheapest way to play X3 at the time.

Another update. Added more games to the list and gave it a redesign. It's looking pretty good now. :D

If anyone has any more titles to add, let me know.

Not surprised that some of these compilation games have a bilinear filter. I remember there used to be a time when people considered sharp pixels to be ugly.

My dream mod would be a hack for Gradius IV on PS2 to run in its native 384p (24kHz). I'm sure it can be done, just nobody with the proper knowledge has tried to tackle it.

it really does suck that there arent easier ways to consistently and reliably get 480p and 240p on the PS2. Some of the best games of all time locked to interlace.

I don't have any of my PS2 stuff available to test at all. But if anyone has it, can they test Metal Gear and Metal gear 2 solid snake on MGS3S to see if they run in 480i? To my recollection (it's been a while), they do run in 480i.

I wonder if forcing 240p would work at all.

It's really too bad that the Extron interface "240p trick" doesn't function on all SD crt setups. It's such a cheap fix and works on all PS2 games and looks quite good (providing that the games art align well with the blanked lines), so it's extremely convenient.

In my setup it works great but I've seen a couple people around the board who couldn't get it to work properly

Yes, both Metal Gear games run in 480i. Honestly I prefer the original MSX versions. I'm not a fan of the changes they made to these.

Figured, that's kind of what I remembered. I really enjoyed these versions. I wish someone would hack the Shinkawa portraits into the original game for MG2.
