how to load elfs from disc
how to load elfs from disc –
hey I know this is a noob question but I can't find anything about it anywhere...
I have free mc boot 1.4b it has ulaunchelf with it. I have a cd-r with psx-loader.elf burnt on it. How do I load disc so it saves onto memory card so I can launch it from ulaunchelf?
First off, I assume that your cd-r is readable on your PS2 at all, which requires a mod-chip. There is no way for an unmodded PS2 to read a CDROM formatted CD-R disc, or a DVDROM formatted DVD-R disc. But for DVD-R discs a special trick can be used, putting your files on a disc formatted for DVD-Video, but using UDF/ISO mixed filesystems. Such discs are not directly readable by uLE, but can be made readable by using the newly released ESR utility to relaunch uLE, after which uLE will be able to read those discs. You can find the ESR utility in the FreeVAST subforum of this site.

You start by pressing the button defined for FileBrowser in the main uLE menu. This opens the browser where you can navigate with the D-pad buttons and activate the highlighted entry with your OK button (either Circle or Cross depending on config). Activating an entry for a device or a folder will simply navigate the browser to that directory, while activating the entry for a file will attempt to launch that file as an elf program.
Pressing R1 will open a menu with several commands, and for file copying the most relevant commands are "Copy" and "Paste":
"Copy" simply memorizes the selected item(s) without copying any content
"Paste" copies the memorized item(s) into the current browser directory
So first you browse to the source device (like "cdfs:/") and directory, and there select the item(s) to be copied and memorize this with "Copy" command, after which you browse to the destination device (like "mc0:/") and directory where you start the data transfer with the "Paste" command.
Note, however, that you are not supposed to store files in the root directory of a memory card, but should always store them inside a folder. You can either use one of the folders already existing, or create a new one using another command from the R1 menu:
"New Dir" opens a popup where you enter the name of the new folder to be created.
Be aware that folders created without standard Sony icon definitions (2 files) will be displayed as corrupt data in the Sony browser. That indication is false and should be ignored, and if you want to eliminate it altogether you can use yet another command of the R1 menu in the uLE FileBrowser to create a valid icon file set:
"New Icon" opens two popups in succession to enter data for the new icon. The first popup requests a 'title' of max 32 characters, which will be displayed as normal text for that icon in the Sony browser. The second popup requests 'IconText', also limited to 32 characters, which will be displayed as part of the icon picture, split into four rows of 8 characters each. The result will be that two files are created in the current folder. One is named "icon.sys" and contains various info including the 'title' defined above, while the other is named "icon.icn" and contains the graphics of the icon (affected by 'IconText' above).
