My problem is that once all that is done, it will boot fine. But as long as there is no LAUNCHELF.CNF. it freezes every time it even catches wind of one.
Right now, I'm currently reflashing my card and going to replace the RUNME.ELF and delete the boot-osd.elf and create a /BOOT/BOOT.ELF on the MC. hopefully it was just a small glitch that it will work out on this go.
well, v10 NTSC-U PS2 unit. Version 1.2 can't extract my mc id, going to sleep.
Previous version could extract my mc id and all.
Also, I tried using the 1.0 version, then replacing the RUNME.ELF with the new RUNME.ELF.
Ulaunch 3.12 PLUS launched ok, BUT when I tried to access the CD/DVD it crashed.
A new boot, uLaunch... tried to save the .cnf. CRASHES
Aka, I'm getting the same behaviour of 1.1. I still can't access my CD/DVD rom drive, nor save the ulaunchelf.cnf file.
I'm missing something?
Ok, got 1.2 working on my SCPH-30001 (NTSC) & my SCPH-50001 (NTSC) but, my SCPH-70001 (Slim NTSC) gets some diagnal noise (like it does on the other consoles) then gets a black screen using a Datel MAX 16MB card. Never loads, and thats the only one I really care about this working on... I know you're workin hard jimi... keep it up!
finally got it beyond the problem of crashing when reading any LAUNCHELF.CNF. But one problem still remains. Still locks up on any access to the disc drive. I'm going to wait for the next release.
First I would like to congratulate Jimmi and thank all involved on this project. Great work guys:D
I haven´t tried the new version yet but I found a simple fix to get ulaunch almost fully compatible for ver 1.1 on both pal and NTSC consoles. will be useful for people still on 1.1.
I got most of the emulators(datel pgen,snes, scummvm) running, ps2media pro, USBadvance, cogswap, cdloader and psxloader running.
the disk stops spinning allowing you to swap with a backup or differernt region game. psxlauncher for (psx backups)you still need a way a to swap the disk without the eject button.
Ok, it´s a simple and easy trick. :)
Get mcloader and put it on your usb drive. use ulaunch to start mcloader. when you get to the options screen, go down to where it says DVD region mode and hit X. your screen should go black for a few seconds and then back to the ulaunch screen.
That´s it. :D You should now have almost full compatibilty with ulaunch.
Tested on a fat ps3 pal ver3 and a slim unmodded NTSC ps2.
On the slim NTSC ps2 the fix didn´t fix the crashing for ulaunch though the other stuff works.
So Enjoy and once again thanks to everyone involved in this project. :)
I can also confirm that even with the new runme.elf, any access to the dvd drive crashes things.
Strange my disk asscess under Ulaunchelf is working just fine useing this new boot methode.

Both v4 and v7 and working fine. I suspect you guys may not have installed the RUNME.ELF correctly but I guess it could be a version issue, what version are you running? and are you booting ulaunchelf off the memorycard? cause thats the only setup I tryed
@ spkleader - Not sure how. At that point between hardware problems between the CPU and the ps2, I was about to reach for the baseball bat and start smashing them. But I did reflash the card and copied everything with fresh copies to get that far.
@ Peppers - could be version specific with that problem. At the moment, I'm just using my v10 with it since the v4 is unavailable right now, and I'm avoiding the v7 for any laser activity unless absolutely needed.
dvd fix strange
Hi, congratulation for this work
i use 1.2 on 2 ps2 pal (1 slim and 1 big)
