are modfied games illegal ?
#1
are modded games illegal ?

as far as today i have met three kinds of modded games :

1- translated games ( sometimes voice sometimes subtitle )
2- three games chained together with PS2 multi loader
3- games that have special hack alowing PAL games to run on NTSC PS2 and vice versa


#2 is definitely illegal but what about other kinds



just a legal question Laugh

downloading a patch to translate (or mod) your own copy of the game is not illegal.
downloading the pre-patched game is illegal.

in the case of undubs, downloading a patch might still be illegal because the patch will contain the voice data from another version of the game.
so i'm not sure on that one.

its always illegal to modify a product that is licensed to you.

we just care less about manipulation of copyrighted data than we do about cloning it.

isos are fine, copyright law overruled the eula reproduction clause as long as its required to get the application to operate.

anyways, the devs never released "prepatched games".
so this would mean you are buying a game which is basically illegal. But in that case, the seller is outlaw before you
