Ah...The Perfect FMCB setup (IMO)
So...After my SATA mod I set out on a quest.
I have a V9 or V10 (forgot which model this is) PS2 w/ Matrix Infinity inside.
My gripe is this: I want to auto-load to HDLoader or OpenPS2Loader WITHOUT pushing buttons. Now, so far NOTHING can do this EXCEPT FMCB (or you have a disc in the drive, I want to be disc-less, although my 400c or HD7 laser is still kickin!)...
So I set up FMCB and removed the SMS and ESR, no need for ESR since I am modded anyway, I'll never play games from disc so it's pointless as well.
I added in OpenPS2Loader (latest source compile as of 10/9/10)
also added in .8c of HD Loader (in case I need it)
I configured everything to run from mc? (any memory card slot), mind you, I am running from SLOT 2.
I have the stuff in SLOT 2 because I am reserving slot 1 for VMC and from what I recall some games can cause damage to the memory card (easily recovered but still don't want the hassle) so I do NOT have a card in slot 1. My VMC image is generic and 64MB so it can be shared between ALL games!
Let's see....what else....Oh...Since it is setup to auto launch OpenPS2Loader, when I exit it goes back to the PS2 launcher menu, which is now replaced with the hacked OSD, of course! The only issue with this is I have to hold one of a multitude of buttons just to boot back into the loader without auto-loading the OPL again...I just hold X. It's 3:30AM and I was messing around with it and kept hitting launch on bad elf's on my memory card, haha.
Anyway, here's a quick video:
