DMS3 v(1.0/2.0) 1.6c update and 10000/15000 Tutorial.
Ok....I've got great news for those with 10k/15k models. The new 1.6c update is definitely a worthwhile upgrade for those with these models and a DMS v1.0 or v2.0.
Now, the new features of the 1.6c update absolutely kick ass. I haven't tested all of them, but rest assured, they will be over the next couple of days. There are still some lingering issues with my HDD, but that will hopefully resolved soon.
*WARNING* - I'm not responsible if you follow these instructions and end up mucking your PS2 up. If you don't feel up to it, have someone more qualified do it for you.
First of all, you'll need to grab the latest update here: http://www.dms3.com/download.htm.
Once you've done that, you need to burn the BIN/CUE file with a program that will burn the image contents to a blank CDR disc. You can grab a few different programs, and will accomplish the same task:
Fireburner - http://www.fireburner.com
CDRWIN - http://www.goldenhawk.com
Nero - http://www.nero.com
Burn at Once - http://www.burnatonce.com
The easiest ones I would say are Fireburner and Burn at Once. Very "no frills" applications that get the job done. There is a Burn at Once tutorial at the DMS site http://www.dms3.com/manuals.htm, at the bottom.
[DMS 1.0 hardware]
If you've got the v1.0 hardware, it's easy for you to do the update. Just insert the disc and Press "X" to run the update. Should take less than 5 minutes.
If you've got the 1.2 or 1.3 update installed, you'll need to reset it to the base 1.0 code, then load the 1.6c update. In order to do that, you'll need to do the following:
- Put the 1.6c update disc in the drive and put the PS2 in "Standby mode". (only the red LED is on for the RESET button)
- Press reset to turn on the PS2
- As soon as the blue light turns on, press reset again.
- As soon as the blue light turns on, press reset again.
After this last reset, you should have reverted back to the 1.0 code and should be able to boot the 1.6c update disc. Once it's loaded, Press "X" to run the update and you should be smiling in 5 minutes.
[DMS 2.0 hardware]
Version 2.0 hardware is a little more trickier. If you can get an installer to Flash it with the 1.6c in another PS2 before installing it in your 10000/15000, it's a lot easier on you.
However, if you were in the same situation as me where it was installed already and couldn't get it to work, you'll need to do what I similarly did. You can either do this yourself or have an installer do it for you (but I suppose if an installer is doing it for you, you might as well have him flash the damn chip for ya)
What you'll need for this update:
- the 1.6c update disc
- Original JAP game or Util Disc that came with your PS2
- #2 Phillips head Screwdriver (X head)
- Phillips head screwdriver for eye glass repair
- Action Replay 2 V2 for JAP consoles (English Version form Datel)
- Guts :p
Ok...time for some prep work. You'll need to take the rubber feet and plastic caps off the bottom of your PS2. Once you've done that, take the screws out that were underneath the caps.
Flip your PS2 over and with the front of the PS2 facing yoy, gently remove the top cover, taking care to remove the RESET/EJECT switch from the top corner of the cover.
Once you've taken the cover off, you'll need to remove the 2 screws holding the top cover of the CD Drive down. Once you've verified that you can remove the cover...you're all set to do the upgrade procedure.
OK, leave the CD Drive cover on the drive, without the screws. Plug your PS2 Power cable in and hold the Eject button for 1-2 secs to put the DMS3 in stealth mode. It should spit out your disc tray, so put your AR2V2 disc in the disc tray and dongle in a mem slot. Once it's booted, goto Select Codes and Select the Tekken Tag Tournament. (2.00). If you can't read the Japanese, it's the code with (2.00) on it and the (1.20) above it.
Once you're in the code selection screen, select ALL the Codes by putting the checkmark next to it. (In reality, you only need to have about 104 codes active to spew an error, but I don't remember which one you should be stopping at, I think it was like 2P Paul or something like that).
Once the codes are selected, back out to the main menu. Eject your drive using the EJECT button and place the JAP original game or Util disc in the drive. Close it with the EJECT button.
Once the disc is spinning to a constant speed and sound, Choose START GAME, then WITH CODES, and the next screen press "O". It should give you an error message saying "TOO MANY CODES".
What you should have noticed is that the disc has stopped spinning in the drive. Do not hit EJECT to remove the CD. Remove the CD Drive cover and replace the JAP Original Disc with the DMS 1.6c Upgrade CD, and replace the Drive Cover.
Press "O" on your controller to clear the error message, then hit "X" all the way back out to the main menu. FRom here select "START GAME" again, but this time, WITHOUT CODES, and press "O" to start.
By this time you're pretty much in the home stretch. The DMS Upgrade CD should have booted and you should be presented with the screen asking you to press "X" to update the DMS3. On this screen you should see that the DMS Hardware is 2.00 and the FPGA is 0.00. This is normally an error as it should read 3.30. Ignore this error as I did and just run the update.
Now, here's the funny part. The update will be stuck on the "UPDATING" screen and tells you to not turn off your PS2. Well....my advice is to leave your PS2 for about 10 mins to make sure the update is finished, and then put your PS2 back into standby.
Once in standby, hit the RESET button again to boot the 1.6c update disc. If it booted it correctly, you should see the DMS update screen again. This time, the Hardware should read 2.00 and the FPGA should be reading 3.30, like it should. Now to me, this means it's updated, but just for my own piece of mind, I ran the update 1 more time to make sure. This time, the update actually completed by telling me to shut off my ps2. This took all of less than 5 mins.
After it's been completed, unplug all things connected to the PS2 externally, reverse the steps you took in unscrewing the CD Drive and put the top cover back on.
You should have now succesfully updated your DMS v2.0 with the 1.3 default patches to 1.6c.
