Guys What is the point to write "Requests for SMS" if no one reads it?
Eugene Plotnikov left the project already long time ago. Even if he sometime reads this thread----it means nothing. Reading and Developing are two quite different things.
Probably he does not have time for it, or he lost interest fo it, or maybe he thinks that no improovments can be done to SMS anymore, or probably he got married and does not have time for it anymore.
Of course SMS deserves further development. To my opinion SMS could get support for more file formats, more VGA resolutions--it needs to get better support for SMB--because Red Host Client does not work in Windows 7. SMB could be implemented like in OPL--without RHC.
But still if Eugene Plotnikov had time and interest for it-----looks like he doesnt............................................ .................................................. .................................................. .............................
Guys I have discovered interesting thing.
I am now trying to create for me UlauchELF DVD because till this moment I had it on CD---and as you all know CD is not a good choice to use on PS2 because it spins a lot---so I decided to switch to DVD version.
So base for my DVD will be UlauchELF 4.42b.
So I want to include all the good ELFs which exist for PS2.
So everything went well till the moment I started to check SMS.
I downloaded all SMS versions from SKSAPPS and started to test them. Funny things I have discovered. SMS all the time could read AVI from first version. But MP3 started to understand from 1.7 I think...
So I have put some jpg , AVI and MP3 files...
Everyone thinks that he has got the best version of SMS which is 2.9rev4... you are wrong guys. I have mp3 which was read on SMS version 1.7 but could not be read on SMS 2.9 rev4...
So which one I have to use--1.7 or 2.9rev4? Help me guys to decide...
I checked the mp3 file on MyPS2.ELF and it could read it...Could not check it on Argon.ELF---because it is funny homebrew--not always starts......
So what to do? To have both SMS and MyPS2 ?
Probably EEUG has to fix it... Try yourself to play mp3 file I am adding and you will see youself that SMS2.9rev4 needs fixing......
Why use CD or DVD? Why not load your MP3s and AVIs and etc. to a USB HDD and preserve your CD Laser lens? SMS plays it fine on USB and also via Network using PS2Client.
Your above explanation wasn't clear on what you were trying to test. Please explain it better. I've read your post a few dozen times, but it's very unclear what you are trying to explain. Perhaps English is not your language, go ahead and write it in your native tongue and I will use google translate. Perhaps I will understand it better--as long as you don't misspell words in your native tongue. lol
Ok I will explain it in such manner----In general I do use FMCB and I do not use my PS2s disc tray at all. Everything is loaded (like games.films, fotos, music, homebrews) through USB or LAN or from MemoryCard. But I do have sometimes such situation, when I do something with my MemoryCard--some experiments---so FMCB is deleted for some period of time until I restore it after experiments are done and I need to start UlaunchELF from CD Disc----in such situation I do need to have UlauchELF on DVD-Disc which will replace for me FMCB for time being until my experiments are done. I have got ModChip inside of my PS2---so here no problems---disc can be started without FMCB.
Till this moment I had such disc with all necessary software on CD (It was created by me long time ago) but not on DVD. And to have it on CD is not a good idea because it spins very quickly inside PS2. So I decided to create for myself DVD-version of such disk now...
I started to gather all the ELFs created for ps2 and test them for bugs, for how good it is working---because I want My DVD have the best software possible created for ps2....
What i am trying to create is this --- http://sksapps.com/launchers/uLaunchELF_v4.37_DVD.zip --- but with the latest UlaunchELF 4.42b on board and all useful (Apps)ELFs for ps2...
And I downloaded all the versions of SMS. Unpacked it to usb-pan-drive. Copied to usb-drive avi-files, jpg-files and mp3-files in order to test SMS.
And the thing is that version of SMS which is 1.7rev3 could play mp3 file which I attached here, but version of SMS 2.9rev4 could not. Also MyPS2 1.2.elf could play mp3-file attached here ... Try it yourself...
So I am saying that EEUG has somehow to fix it....
If you do not understand what I said----thats fine, probably you do not need to understand what am I doing,
but you need to understand the main part---read it at the bottom:
'''''"""""""""Version of SMS which is 1.7rev3 could play mp3 file which I attached here, but version of SMS 2.9rev4 could not. Also MyPS2 1.2.elf could play mp3-file... Try it yourself...

I agree would be nice if some bugs were fixed but he has not been on since 04-27-2012 10:59
and no updates for this for very long time as well maybe someone has source can not remember who but I know I have 2.9r4 1x000 that someone modded
for 1x000 models to run maybe they can fix that too :D
Well , this is what I wanted to say... I thought myself that SMS2.9rev4 is the best mediaplayer, which can play every AVI, JPG, MP3 and that I can have only SMS on my memorycard and no other mediaplayers are necessary ... But my test showed that SMS 1.7rev3 better plays mp3 files than SMS2.9rev4....
In SMS1.7rev3 it prints on screen ----- Buffering MP3 file...
In SMS2.9 rev4 it prints on screen----Unsupported file format(press "cross" to continue)...
Try it yourself:
1 Download at first SMS1.7rev3 from here: http://sksapps.com/media/SMS_Version_1.7_R3.rar
2 Download SMS2.9rev4 from here: http://sksapps.com/media/SMS_Version_2.9_R4.rar
3 Download Sleep Away.mp3 which I attached earlier....
Maybe you will need to delete SMS-folder on memorycard for this experiment.....
Well good thing that EEUG visits psx-scene--- May of 2012 is not so far away from today. Probably he will read it and will know that SMS2.9rev4 needs to be fixed, because probably he thinks that everything is ok in version 2.9rev4....
Maybe we need to write him PM and when he will visit psx-scene---it will pop up and he will know about the problem? For how long sent PMs are saved until the person can see it?
I have tried it you are right about the mp3 for both revisions
about PM not exactly sure how long I think indefinitely as long as account still works
BTW I checked it yesterday when you posted ;)
and my 1x000 has the same problem
i bought a IR Remote Control for PS2 Slim 7... from Ebay witch works weel with FMCB but it dosnt have "cross" and "Square" buttons and in SMS i cannot open folders and start playing or stop, the OK button dosnt do anything in sms, but in FMCB it works.

Of course, this remote hasn't all features of original Sony one (which I bought two of them later for my two other slims - and I intend to buy the third one).
Well, in order to solve your issue, check/replace your remote control battery and look for an option inside SMS menus related to remote control (I can't remember where, so you should investigate yourself). Check SMS manual too (at EEUG page).

doctorxyz thanks for the answear but...
i tested my remote with the "RM_Test elf" program and ALL keys work FLAWLESS!
I looked in the sms menu in the "Device Settings" and under Controler port 2... Remote control but my IR Control use the in build IR and the setting doesn't change anything!
I had searched on other forums and I found something about RMMAN irx whitch it must pe placed in the same folder with SMS but i cannot found that file i dont know if that is the real solution for problem...
UPDATE: Very strange thing... i tested my remothe with "SMS Version 1.7 (Rev.5) elf" and all the keys work!
now i the question is...why doesn`t the sms v2.9 work?
UPDATE 2: Found the solution... in the sms menu in the "Device Settings" and under "Controler port 2" select NONE and all work fine!
