DMS Explorer replacements
DMS Explorer replacements –
Over on the DMS3 forums theres a link to this page. It contains info on installing mcloader instead of DMS Explorer to boot when you hold down triangle on your pad when you boot your DMS equipped PS2.
I can see that this is being acheived using the install.cnf file to install MC loader where the DMS chip expects DMS explorer to be.
The first line being the title of the program being installed, not sure what the second line does, the third line creating the BOOT dir and the fourth line copying BOOT.ELF into "mc:\BOOT\" where the DMS chip expects to find DMS Explorer.
COPY cdrom0:\MCLOADER.ELF;1 mc0:\BOOT\BOOT.ELF
BOOT.ELF is actually MC Loader renamed so the DMS chip doesn't complain. This means we can boot any ELF we want by holding down triangle on a DMS chipped PS2.
The only problem I've encountered with this method of running MC Loader is MC Loader expects to be somewhere else on the memory card so, while it boots media player from the main menu, it won't boot applications from the "Installed Applications" menu.
To this end, is it possible to create a loader application for people with DMS chips so they can load MC Loader, for example, from where its meant to be installed - sort of like a PS2 batch file.
Actually, having been thinking while writing this, would it be possible to use Jum's loader instead of MC Loader - or even to load MC Loader?
I haven't experimented much yet, so I'll see how it goes.
Well, I tried booting Jum's loader using the DMS chip and after loading from the mem card it then tells me it can't find a mc installed in either port. This is after its loaded from the mc. hmmmm.....
