Sorry for the noob question but do we need ESR elf file or does 1.8c already have the necessary files to read burned discs?
If it does need the ESR elf file how would I put it on a mc already formatted with fmcb 1.8c? Would i just use the "tool" software provided in the package? If so is the root path of the mc simply "/"?
Thanks for all ur help and thanks jimmi and anonymous for ur hard work!!
anybody might know the answer to this above? ^^
The ESR is standard in packages....
But you can look what Apps you have with the package.
Boot to uLE (Turn PS2 on, when you see the FMCB-logo press and hold "R1" on trigger).
When uLE comes up, press "O" on trigger then you can "Browse"....
mc0: is MC in slot 1
mc1: is MC in slot 2
mass: is USB
cdfs: is the DVD-Drive
hd0: is for internal HDD (fat PS2, slim HD-combo)
MISC: there are some Apps too
And if you want some Apps to copy to MC, copy the *.ELF you have to USB-stick, boot to uLE, browse to "mass:" (your *.ELF), press "R1" for menue, select "copy", browse to "mc?:" where you want and paste it (press again "R1" and select "paste")
I tried the repack and had issues with signing the kelf but the ps3mca-tool-fmcb-1.8c version worked like a charm the first time I ran it. Thank you for your innovation and thanks go out to your anonymous contributor as well as the rest of the guys behind FMCB.
Other than that, I noticed that the tool did not install much with FMCB on my memory card. Would anyone be opposed to me re-writing the batch file to include the installs for the noobie pack of apps with FMCB and uploading it?
It is unlikely that anyone will complain as long as you test it first ;)
Sounds like a plan then. I will make some adjustments and then test it to make sure everything is proper prior to posting it on here. I feel like I need the practice with batch files and command line functions anyway.
I had a similar question earlier today and found that it was a simple answer. With the version of 1.8c that I got ESR was not included. I looked into the different apps available for FMCB and downloaded them to my pc after my PS2 was successfully booting FMCB. Then I put the .elf Files for the apps on a flash drive and used uLE as LopoTRI discussed to copy the .elf files over to my memory card for easier access. From there you can also go to the configurator in the main browser and set buttons for pre-sets so you only need to hold a button to start a specific app when turning the PS2 on.

Any news on getting this working with the generic brands?
I have opened mine up and it has
on the PCB:
A2 VSMA66HB1 OR A2 VSMA66H81(not sure can not make out the 8 or B)
also one thing I noticed was J tag was there also.
What is needed on getting this all working?
On linux here.
I have programming knowledge, so anything to not make this a wasted product.
Hi, im at the point of formating my ps2 memory card but it doent let me it give error in the cmd box any idea how i can resolve this
i am using the official sony adaptor and the official 8mb ps2 memory card
Edit: I'm a dumb, found out the answer to most questions.
Though, is it still ABSOLUTELY necessary to format my mc for this to work? I really dont want to lose my battle trophies and gameplay data in star ocean 3.
