Help getting FMCB please
Ok, i've been trying to get FMCB on my ps2 for two days. Since I do not own anything suggest for the different installation methods, I'm forced to use the ps2 swap trick.
I've been very optimistic about this at first, seeing i owned two of the patchable elf games on the list this site's guide offers. Which are Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Jak X combat racing. Unfortunately, both of them were unconfirmed to be working, but hey I had to try them!.
My ps2 is a phat spch-39010, and I also own another phat scph-50010.
First things first, I started to do a iso file with the help of imgburn of one of my original copy.
Then I used Apache to edit the byte to 915196
Then I renamed the elf, in ulaunch to NTGUI.ELF
Then i burned the iso.
On dvd-R of course
Everything until this point was done according to PS2 Game Swap Trick
Then I started star wars on my spch 39010. Swaped at menu to my backup. Went to multiplayer, lan, add edit, exit without saving......then the red screen
Up until this point I was very mad so i tried again and again, same result.
Then i decided to test my luck with jak x. Did the same thing as up there.
At first I couldnt go pass the lan menu because I didnt had any network setting on my mc. So i decided to installed the network adapter and blablbalba, guess what? Another red screen when i had hope.
So before I go to my local game shop and look for working games ie 007, can anyone please tell me where i went wrong?
I'm so mad right now.
Oh and everything was done on the 39010
it is dificult to say where you went wrong, cause its not a guarantee that must work on every PS2 and on every region....
But you can look at some things.
Have you take the "uncompressed uLE"??
Or have u try it without editing the byte to 915196 ?? Cause i read some posts, they say they dont edit the byte.....
And with "jak x" i read the .ELF must named "NTGUI_UC.ELF" and not "NTGUI.ELF"......
I took the uncompreesed boot.elf available to download at the website guide. Maybe i don't have to edit the byte, but in most tutorial they say to edit it...
Ofc i know it's NTGUI_UC.ELF for jak x.....I mean I did it the same way for battlefront 2.
Update : Tried using my other ps2 50010, same thing happen, I get the red screen after I try to access the ulauncher...
Everytime it's the same thing I go to network, lan , and immediately after that, both of my lasers on my 2 ps2s perform a disc check ( the lasers going toward the ps2 logo ring on legit disc). I tried to double swap when the disc check comes but it just brings me to the network configuration and not the ulaunch!
I will try to use another dvd-r and not edit the byte....but i've already waste plenty of dvd...
i have just helped some over PM. we tested it with "Smackdown vs. Raw" and "Metal Gear Solid 3" but both dont work for him too, it comes the red screen with "insert a PS2 Disc", but in the tut its "green" (working)
So i think its happiness to bring uLE up.......
Problem solved : AGENT UNDER FIRE
The only game that has a high chance of working. Lucky me I found some used one at gamestop :D
The first mission was a pain tho lawl
meilod00 did you edit the byte size with AUF cause im using the same thing but for some reason it wont boot up.
