I'm new here, just wanted to know if I can boot it like I do with ps2reality in the case from a cd. And I don't quite get the part on how to use a usb flash memory
in theory adding a system.cnf file to the cd should work, but as a few of us who have tried it ourselves, there hasn't been any luck. Those who are suggesting it haven't actually tried it. I tried it and wasted 3 cd's. I have a decent knowledge of the system.cnf files and did all the editing- as well i tried someone's pre-made iso on here. All give the same result: black screen.
Has anyone here successfully booted directly from cd? (and no, i don't mean copied from cd to memory card then booted... i mean direct from cd).
I am tried to make bootable cd for myps2 ver 0.5 and 1.0, but with no success. Only black screen is all i can see. I don't try to load from memory card yet. I think to waste of 1/8 of memory card space is not comfortable for me.
I have'nt tried to make a bootable cd with the new myps2, but I made one that did work with 0.5 version, and I used the edited system file in that case.

hmm, i dont think thats true, there is really one way to make a system.cnf file.
except for the Version name and PAL/NTSC
BOOT2 = cdrom0:\MYPS2.ELF;1
VER = 1.00
VMODE = PAL/NTSC
in CDGENPS2, set the LBA of the SYSTEM.CNF file fixed to 12231, then add the ELF then the folders.
If you get blackscreen like me when starting from MC just wait a few seconds and then you will have success. Don't know why but it takes a very long time to load. switched of several times, because of blackscreen but then i went to pc, left blackscreen alone, come back and myps2 was loaded. Anyway doesn't support USB Stick and doesn't support my HDD in V12.
Well, I've waited like 10 min and the screen still kept black. Maybe cause I put all the files and directory's not in the root of the memorycard, but in a new folder called myPS2
As long as you have the dir's with the myps2.elf file there should'nt be a problem.

Yep, me too, i just started using CDPS2GEN coz i had sum probs in the past with loading ps2 media player from memcard.
