Can i hook up a 12" LCD monitor to my PS2???

If you're making a portable you probably need something to watch it on. (Unless you want to guess what's happening in the game, but I wouldn't advise that) Anyway, this forum is your "Hacking a pocket TV/screen" one-stop solution. Share your experiences and knowledge here.

yeah I mean when the PS1 screen is held closer to your face(as a portable would) its plenty big.
SNESp - 100%
Protable X - 15% - I need money :(

You cant use Laptop screens, they dont have stand-alone video boards, all video is dealt with on the laptop motherboard.

And good luck finding a 12" (useable) lcd for any price within reason.
