I tried using OPL 0.7 and it gave me a "network startup error"
Can a dev fill me in here a little? What might be some possible causes?
I think they will say to you to use the OPL v0.8....
I got mine solved by moving PS2SMB folder from D:\ to C:\(system disk),don't forget to share it once again,hope it helps someone.
Under OPL settings, if I set the Ethernet to "AUTO", OPL always freezes for me upon startup, but when I set it to manual, it never manages to find the games list.
Anything this might mean?

I think you have a bad network adapter. I have this same problem. Whenever an app initialized the network, my PS2 freezes. I know its the adapter because it happens with two different PS2's. I suggest you test your network adapter with another application. Try using uLaunchElf. It has a built in FTP server. If memory serves you get to it via File Browser -> Misc -> Ps2Net. It should pull the IP configuration from the same place as OPL. Just ping it continually and see if it keeps responding. In my case, both my PS2 will lock up within 2 minutes and the pings will stop. And this happens to me using OPL, uLaunchElf, and the stand alone HD server elf.
I had the same problem on SCPH-75004 using OPL v0.8 and connected with crossover to pc with win xp. What worked for me was to assign a button through ulE to start the network during boot. As long as i hold the button ps2 boots directly to OPL and my game list appears. Hope this helps.
What? I'm assuming you configured FMBC to load uLE which in turn loads OPL by using the same auto load button assignment?
Hello, I have tried everything mentioned above, I'm able to ping my PS2 from PC, just in case, I also used "LaunchELF" and I was STILL able to ping + used FTP transfer of files & SMS video streaming without a problem, I formatted one of my HDD's into FAT32, hoping that would fix it, nope, that did not do anything, still I see refreshing on the "Network Games" for around 15 seconds and then empty, the games are confirmed to be checked in the proper formats with CD and DVD uppercase folders, of which I have put DBZ BT2, marked as COMPATIBLE in the games list, as well as the .00 .01 .02 .03 type of files with their .cfg file at the end which is located in the root of the FAT32, this has been tried on NTFS too, but nothing happens there either...(AND in C: - SYSTEM DRIVE TOO)
For further info on my settings if you think they might be the problem:
- PS2 -
- PC -
Port: 445 (I've checked...it's open, no anti-virs,no firewalls blocking, all is disabled I assure you).
Share: PS2SMB (My sharing folder on PC is the same, I'm using XP by the way).
User: GUEST (Guest mode enabled in my account settings tab, read somewhere it should be enabled, but doesn't really change things).
All of this is by using a router with two cables, one going from router to PC the other from router to PS2 and of course the router's cable for internet on my home-phone-line, the ping time is 1 ms, pretty fast, movies and mp3 run really smoothly using SMS, my PS2 is chipped/modded I use a USB Flash Drive in which I've put Open PS2 Loader, but I tried from the memory card (8 mb) too, without any different result from the stated above. I've spend over 9 hours trying to figure this out...decided it's time to ask for some help, I hope I explained well enough... THANKS IN ADVANCE!!
check that responds to ping, even without the list opl.
Make sure Windows is able to share files and folders. network connections. (on XP do not know where it is because I use linux and windows 7)
make sure that the way the games are correct.
and also PS2SMB, has permissions for everyone, in sharing and security tab
First check if your "Gateway" with "192.168.1.2" is right. Normally the router have "1" at the end (depends on user how configure it)...
Then try to give the PS2 another IP. Cause i see that your PC has "100", so i know that in router you can configure what the first IP is.
That means maybe your router is configured to give IP from "100" above.
So try IP for PS2: "192.168.1.105"
And the game-path must be correct.
If you play with .isoīs then you must put it in CD/DVD folders.
If you play wit .ul then it must be on the "root" of the share and not of the HDD....
@ mrcordas & FinalBlast
It must be :
P.S: If you play over SMB then you donīt need FAT32. NTFS works too.....
And donīt forget to set in OPL-settings the "ETH device start mode" to "Manual" (to start then in OPL-Browser with "X"), or to "AUTO"...
