How on earth do you make PS2 games? If it is too hard then I will stick to selling PV ones! WICKED PUBLISHING! INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER AND GAME DEVELOPMENT TEAM Ben@Wickedarcade.co.uk

I dont know what a PV game is but....

you make a PS2 game the same way you make any other game. You program the game using a compiler, get art resources etc.... compile it, bingo, you have a game.

Not quite a simpe as it sounds......:-)

It''s a lot like how you used to have to program games back in the days of DOS... but with much more complex hardware

These two sites should get you started, but here''s some info I can give you (i''m just starting):

There''s a gnuEE compiler under which you can program for and make PS2 software. However, the current PS2 Emulator is very slow and not good to test your software on. So, to test out your program you''ll need either a USB to USB cable that will work with the PS2 to your PC, or a network adapter and mod chip under which you can set up a client - server connection to your PS2 using a program called "pukklink" or "ps2link".

But ameteur PS2 development hasn''t been around for too long, so there''s not much documentation yet. Whenever the Playstation 2 Hackers Guide comes out at ps2dev.sourceforge.net we''ll be in heaven though

I hope this helped. Further information will be found at my site ( http://dist0rtedbox.homelinux.net/ ) whenever my server gets back up.
