Maybe in the Future –
Imagine this (I am sure all the programmers of uLaunchelf are all hoping for the day this will be possible and have already thought of it)
uLaunchelf could run games off hd, or hdloader was integrated, then u could :
Use uLaunchelf to choose a directory e.g.
And for every game on the hd u write a mc serial eg
So that before It launches the game it looks in ?Mass:/MemCard? for the game mc serial
BESLES-52541GTA50000 and copies its contents to e.g.
You then play the game and turn off when your done.
Then when u turn it on again (going to ulaunchelf) it prompts to copy the contents of mc1:/ to Mass:/MemCard overwriting any existing BESLES-52541GTA5000.
So u have a memory card that is virtually any size and can always stay in the ps2 (no more swapping mc?s), a VirtualMC if u like. But of course there are problems if this isn?t used properly.
This ?might? (I don?t know much about PS2 programming) be easy to implement in a new Toxic OS, but team toxic have disappeared and no one knows if there is going to be another release, if only they release the source, not that i can write code for it.
This is what I currently have to do:
Go to ulaunchelf holding triangle (I don?t like the Toxic browser, no TitleON feature)
Manually Copy from mass:/ to mc:/
Press Reset to go to Toxic OS, play, Turn off
Next time I turn on: (this is what I always forget to do, end up losing what I had done)
hold triangle > ulaunchelf
copy mc to mass. Press reset > Toxic OS
is there an easier way, like getting back to Toxic OS from ulaunchelf without reset?, I hate having to get up
Honestly. I think that would be the best thing for ule...But becuase of its roots i dont think it will go in that kind of direction...Would i love to be able to save to hdd...Yes but this my friend saving to hdd is something that i dont think the ULE team will be able to tackel by themselfs...This would have to be a joint effort by all the greats in the scene
What would be neat, as if there was a way to write a redirect code to the memory card, so it saves to the hdd. But using a mem stick would still be kick ass, as they can be Huge.

The uLaunchELF program won't be made into a 'warez' tool at least not by us. It's open source so other apps are free to use some of what uLaunchELF is composed of to do that sort of thing as a separate project.
The original author of LaunchELF never intended for it to become such a thing. Why should we dishonor the original authors work by making it into such a thing? ULaunchELF should just stick to what it does best. Playing games is pretty far from what LaunchELF was meant to do besides there already is an on going project for that sort of thing anyway.
I can only totaly agree with E P. uLE should really stay as it is!
There already is a app, that can launch games from hdd.
And there even is a homebrew project for that.
How many more apps do you want? And making uLE an illegal warez tool is really no good idea.
And why the heck do you want to have hundreds of saves on your MC?
You can only play one game at a time, and there's enough space on the MC for at least 10 saves. Copying saves back and forth via network takes 2 min. Can't hurt that much to loose 2 min of playtime.

Sorry, i didnt mean stealling source from hdloader or anything like that, but a collaboration or code written by ule developers. The post was just a thought and not likely to happen in the near future. i too wouldnt want launchelf to become warez. Making launchelf illegal "warez" would force it underground and would hurt development.
uLE should stay as it is!!
if it did that it would be like Toxic OS, a great thing but people start to lose interest when there are no more updates. the fact that ulaunchelf is constantly updated is what makes it better than most other projects. there were programs for viewing jpgs already but now launchelf can do it aswell. making a great program even greater is what its all about.
so i guess there is no way of getting back to toxic os from launchelf because
2mins of play time is about all i got these days, that and the fact that iam very lazy
i thought "The day has come LaunchELF 3.4 DUURRRR" was a reply and got excited andconfused if not slightly offended

You're right of course.

I think a project like HDDemolisher is too big to be merged with other apps.
And keeping them seperated has the advantage, that each programmer crew can concentrate on their own stuff, which makes development more effective.
As you know: "Too many cooks spoil the broth."

i am against it as well. i would rather uLE to be focused at mc saves and running off another programs, if uLE has merged with all of apps, whats the point of running another porgrams? i rather uLE to be just as it is. and let it grow from it own. like text editor and jpg viewer (that actually works lol)
