A question regarding .elf files
A question regarding .elf files –
hi. what are the best elf files to have on your memory card? I have slimline ps2, and I have the ps2 media player, memory card killer, and ulaunch elf on my memory card at present.
Ulaunchelf is all you really need on the MC, as it can launch any elf from MC, HDD,USB and CD. It depends on what your setup is and how you want to boot apps. Just ulaunchelf is best when MC space is important to you.

kinda of a weird question...
what u mean by 'best' i think SMS is good and ulaunchelf, HDLoader, codebreaker...
what do u need and want ?
this question reminds me of the "which elf app does what " thread at ps2hd.com
is there anything like that here?
maybe this is all GodReborn wants (?)
veritas vos liberabit
in 'best' I mean most useful. Is sms better than the ps2 reality player?
thanks a bunch! I will try that
i would reccommend just ulaunchELF on the MC, if you have a USB drive spare that you can leave permanently attached. otherwise, just try out all the cool homebrews... there's loads of awesome stuff (SMS, pgen, snesstation), and many that are very interesting, though perhaps not so useful.
summary of the best tool for each job in my personal opinion:
file management, FTP, hdd management: uLaunchELF.
media: SMS Media Player.
Disc swapping: cogswap loader.
Emulation: pgen (genesis) and Snes Station. others are somewhat unplayable.
HDD gameplay (if you have HDConnect, or a fat PS2): HDLoader.
there are many others, though those above are the only ones i would consider to stand out amongst the crowd.
is there a homebrew that can be used for overscan or underscan? whenever I use my hd tv with my ps2, I get these black bars around the border. I know that the recently released sega genesis collection has an option to stretch the image. is there anyway to do that with a homebrew so I have a full image with every game?
this may not be so helpful, but does your TV have that feature? i know that the two TVs we've bought in the last 4 years both have the ability to stretch or letterbox the image using the remote. they're not HDTV though.
many PAL games add borders at the top and bottom so that they are the same height as the NTSC version, as PAL has higher resolution (576 vs 480). does it do the black bars thing on all games? i know you can apply a PAL2NTSC patch to game discs before you burn them. maybe something like that is also available in homebrew. i think swap magic also has the option to force a video mode, though that's not homebrew.
