If it really exists as the app shown, was made by someone against the scene and not asociated with the seller, nfo's are sponsored by hd/usb/advance...
If it is just the splash with some crap...then is nfo's
or maybe it's just hdl with a new skin, that could be made by anybody
PS2 V10 NTSC / MI v1.82 / ULE 3.80 / SMS 1.7.5 / HDL 0.8 / 300G HDD
assuming that this is real, then obviously it's useful for new ps2 owners, but for us old fogies what's the benefit? how do games load (fast/slow)? and the most important thing, is there any REAL compatability upgrades? dvd9 games, sector read games supported, etc?
if anyone who actually has this app can answer these questions, it'd be nice to know.
USB Extreme is a horrible product. The loading times are a joke. GTA:SA takes around 7 mins to load at the start. All FMV games lose audio sync, skip and freeze. Games take forever to load.
This is what I predicted due to some common sense. PS2 uses USB 1.1 and that is slow as hell to begin with. Fact is that you can't load data faster then the USB port will let you. It's simple math guys. Ps2nfo of course lied about this and said it's really fast. Hell, this method is even slower then streaming gamecube games!
DVD9 still doesn't work, a few games I tested that don't boot on HdLoader/Advance don't boot. What a ripoff.
Anyone who buys this product then complains about loading speeds should be bitch slapped.
The only reason I purchased it was to prove my prediction.
Don't buy it unless you're some kind of idiot n00b!
There is the IDE addon for V12 PS2's, I suggest you do that instead if you want HDD support. It's pretty easy to do, just takes a while and a little bit of patience. Anyone who can install a modchip can the IDE addon.
Conclusion - USBExtreme SUX!
Brakken, can you link me to some info on the ide addon?
0.3Mb/s what a neat shit.
I surely hope this didnt come as a suprise to anybody.

Launched usbadvance.elf from launchelf. Booted fine. Inserted my 256mb pendrive FAT32 formatted. Recognized. used ul_install to transfer ARMAX EVO to pendrive. Success. Plugged pendrive back into sony. ARMAX added to Game List. Clicked on start. ARMAX loaded fine. The loading time seemed minimumly longer, but there isn't much to load. When I tried to use the cheats and inserted PS2 DVD i got BSOD, but then i expected as much. Also transfered HDLoader to pendrive which also booted fine, but didn't run the games. Have yet to test it with an actual game due to the size limitation of my pendrive (256mb)

this is by NO MEANS a direct request, so don't take it that way...
i'm just curious where (generally) everyone is finding this, i.e. web, irc, newsgroups, etc. i've been searching all medium and i can't seem to find this damn thing anywhere. it's more of a tools collecting task than anything for me cuz i'll continue using my IDE hdd.
i suppose the only reason i'm asking, in general, is cuz i've never had such a hard time finding something
