[Help]FMCB SPLASH SCREEN PROBLEM
[Help]FMCB SPLASH SCREEN PROBLEM –
Hello,good day i just installed the free mcboot latest noobie package to my 8MB original sony memory card but i got this one problem. Btw i have a v9 fat ps2 with matrix infinity[modbo 4],here is my problem i need to remove the splash logo on the free mcboot because it has conflict for launching my original and backup ps1 game with R1 button..i dont know what happen to my ps2 i just change its laser to a new one then its force boot became the R1 and not the select button,when i use the select button to boot it just hangs. I dont install Dev1 because i have my Dev2 installed and i use the R1 button to launch ps1 game. My only problem is the Splash logo showing in my ps2 so i can launch my ps1 when i use my R1 button[Force boot on my ps2],can i remove it or FMCB have setting to set delay time when it shows the splash?
Sorry for my english.
Have a nice day.Thank you.

just unplug memory card with FMCB from PS2 prior turning power on, if you want play PS1 games.
Yes im doing that unplugging memory card..but if theres a way not to unplug and plug that may cause damage to my memory card i will appreciate it.Thank you..
This is ridiculous, I'm plugging and unplugging my cards more than 5 times a day and they are still working faultless... and they are both with production date from 2001 year...
Perhaps you should reconsider how you start games in general. It is not really necessary to launch a game 'directly' by blindly pressing various gamepad buttons at power-on, in the sometimes vain hope that this will have the effect needed for the game disc currently in the tray. Game launching of all kinds can be done just as well (IMO better) from a homebrew menu instead.

This is set up such that uLE will launch identically regardless of the disc tray content, and regardless of modchip enabling. So whatever happens I always 'land' in uLE first.
For starting game discs I then simply use a launch menu shortcut for the uLE command "MISC/PS2Disc" which with modchip enabled is able to boot all PS1 and PS2 game discs, both originals and backups (patched or unpatched), though without modchip enabled it is of course limited to PS1 and PS2 originals plus ESR-patched PS2 backups. (We can also launch DVD-Video movies this way, but that is off-topic here as we were discussing game booting).
All of these are launched in exactly the same way, just by pressing the same gamepad button as defined in your uLE menu, regardless of the game type. (I like to use 'Triangle' for this button.) If you have the game disc in before starting the console, then you can use this generic launch button as soon as the uLE menu is visible, and if you insert the disc later you can use it as soon as the disc type indicator of uLE has stabilized. (NB: This usage requires "Disc control: ON" in uLE configuration.)
NB: Sometimes when you have a modchip the game disc type will be incorrectly indicated as being PS2 even for a PS1 CD. But don't worry about that, as the MISC/PS2Disc command also checks the contents of the SYSTEM.CNF file on each game disc, and uses that to decide whether to launch the game by PS2 or PS1_Driver methods.
Personally I find it much more convenient to launch all discs in this consistent manner, rather than trying to use initial button pressing at power-on, in ways that may cause conflicts between homebrews and modchips like it happened for you. I'm sure those problems could also be alleviated by reconfiguring FMCB a bit, but for myself I prefer not to use those startup methods at all, when I don't have to.
The only potential problem with my method is that I'm not sure how well it works with an MI chip, since I only have a DMS4pro myself. But I think it should work well with any decent modchip having reliable DEV1 booting. (Hopefully the MI 'sleep mode' won't interfere.)

Have a nice day.
