1. Introduction

The plight of the PAL gamer is something that is widely ignored, due to the
fact that 66% of the world's gaming market is NTSC.  The truth is that we PAL
gamers have been playing inferior versions of videogames since the dawn of the
industry.  With the rise of the Dreamcast came the rise of the PAL 60 Hz mode
a setting which allowed PAL gamers to experience their games at the speed they
were intended to be played at.  Playstation games had a particularly poor
track record when it came to 50 Hz conversions, and the start of the 
Playstation 2 library didn't offer any hope of changing the situation.  
However, with time, more Playstation 2 developers have begun to add 60 Hz 
modes to their titles.

I intend for this guide to serve as reference to people curious about 60 Hz
gaming in general, or those searching to see if a particular game supports
such modes.  It will also document the companies which have bad track records
with 50 Hz conversions.

Note: This guide can now be found in German at www.areaps2.de

2. Playing 60 Hz Titles

Before you can play games in 60 Hz, you need a compatible television set.
If you're a multiconsole owner, this means you need a TV that supports PAL60
as well as NTSC, as the Playstation 2 only supports NTSC output.  If you live
in Europe, chances are your TV will support SCART.  If your television has
RGB output, you will be able to get around the problem of playing NTSC titles
on your set, though you will still need a set capable of 60 Hz display, as to
avoid the rolling picture.  If you have a TV with an external vertical hold
knob, you can adjust it until the picture stops rolling - however, the screen
will still have slight borders (but you'll still have the speed).

Next, you need a game capable with a 60 Hz mode - that's what this guide is 

3. The List

Please note that games labelled Bordered 50 Hz contain borders that are 
obtrusive.  Some games labelled Full Screen 50 Hz may contain small borders
but I consider these to be within acceptable limits.

4. Notes

[1] Beyond Good and Evil is cropped to give it a more cinematic style.
[2] Some of Ratchet and Clank's cutscenes will trigger a crash when running
    the game in 60 Hz mode.  It's recommended that you play the game in 50 Hz.
[4] Lethal Skies II normally has fat black borders, but a filter can be
    applied which allows full screen play, at the expense of heavy
[5] Ricky Ponting and Brian Lara Cricket are the same game, but released under
    different titles.

5. Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What does PAL mean?
A: PAL stands for Phased Alternation Line.  It's the colour television
   standard used throughout the British Commonwealth and the majority of the
   world.  It has a 625 line resolution, and a refresh rate of 50 Hz.
Q: What is NTSC?
A: NTSC stands for National Television System Committee.  The NTSC colour
   standard was developed by the Americans, and is used in North America
   and Japan, primarily.  It has a resolution of 525 lines and refresh rate
   of 60 Hz.
Q: What is PAL60?
A: PAL60 is a different PAL standard.  It was developed in Brazil in 1976.  
   It's kind of like a hybrid between PAL and NTSC - it has the PAL colour
   pallete, but NTSC's resolution and refresh rate.  The Playstation 2 does
   not utilise PAL60 - it uses NTSC.
Q: What is so bad about 50 Hz games?
A: Ignorance is bliss, isn't it?  Standard PAL games run 17% slower than their
   NTSC counterparts.  Some developers and publishers like to cut corners when
   delivering a game to the PAL market, putting large borders in their games 
   to avoid a full screen 50 Hz conversion, or doing shoddy jobs of frame
   synchronisation.  Almost all games are designed to be played at 60 Hz.
Q: Help! My TV rolls when I try to play a game in 60 Hz!
A: Your TV is not compatible with 60 Hz.  Buy a new TV.

Q: The picture is in black and white!
A: Your television is not capable of NTSC output.  If your set has an 
   RGB/SCART connector, you can get around it.  Otherwise, you need a new TV.
Q: You're missing Game X!?!
A: Either you've scanned over it, or it's not in the list yet.  Nobody has a
   full list of all of the PS2 games released in PAL, so it'll be a long time
   until the list is complete.  Use Control+F to trigger the search function
   and look for the game before contacting me.
Q: How can we get more developers to implement 60 Hz modes?
A: Get into contact with developers and publishers and let them know that you
   are unhappy with their products - if you pester them enough, they will
   eventually begin to listen to you - it worked with Capcom!
Q: Who are the worst offenders when it comes to poor conversions?
A: Square Europe, easily.

Q: Which developers have not implemented 60 Hz modes in any of their titles?
A: Electronic Arts, Vivendi Universal, Atari, Ubi Soft and Eidos are 
   probably the worst offenders here.  Konami and Midway were 60 Hz neglectors
   for a long time, but have recently come to terms with their errors.
Q: Which developers can I trust to put 60 Hz modes into their titles?
A: Sega, Sony Computer Entertainment and Capcom have 60 Hz modes in just about
   all of their titles now.  Acclaim and THQ have them in a lot of titles too.
