    Default Time Splitters 2 (PAL) 2 NTSC (USA) Fix

    Don't know if anyone is USA or beyond ever tried to boot the PAL version of Time Splitters 2 but many reported it had some Region lock code.

    On a USA machine you had to set your EEPROM to PAL (using Video Mode Selector) and then ended up with black / white scrolling screen due to Video mode. In normal NTSC mode it does not work.

    On my PAL machine set to NTSC EEPROM I got sound and no picture, bit odd....

    Anyways, I received some info from Engage and I used my friend Whirlwind in the USA to do a bit of a test. Turns out u can fix Time Splitters 2 (PAL) to work on NTSC (USA) systems.

    Even got it working perfect on my system when it was set to NTSC.

    If anyone wants to try the fix it's available at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] you must register with a valid e-mail address so that you receive your password to access the downloads.

    I hope some of you find this information interesting...
