How i can start programming for PS2?
How i can start programming for PS2? –
Hi all, i want to programme simpy programs and games to PS2. What i must download, and how i can start? I programme in C/C++ to PC, so i want to programme to PS2. I have PS2 SCPH 90004 and Swap Magic 3.8. I want that my programms work in unofficialLaunchELF, without any additional programs like PS2Link. In my first program i want to show "Hello World!" in screen. I want such program: I run uLELF and i choose my program then in black screen appears "Hello World!". How i can do that?
PS: I have Windows 7.
well I don't know much in programming, but the ps2 runs on .ELF files. They are made in Linux or Unix, whichever you would use. The programming codes used are done in MIPS format. Sorry I don't really know much on programming, but I do have some binaries (src) that was used to make the .elf file. Maybe you can view and try some stuff. Please any finds do tell me, contact me for links
Look for ps2sdk, download and compile it. There bunch of installers with cygwin and mingw, but better is compile it directly on Linux or just download whole HDD image with ready dev enviroment.
How do you want debuging without ps2link? :P
MIPS is not a file format, it's architecture...
i think there is a hello world sample in ps2sdk. one warning - ps2 programming is difficult, and has a steep learning curve. you might prefer to go for psp programming instead (if you have a psp, that is).

Berion's right - if the OP is already running Window 7, he might as well download or build his own Linux VM using VM Player. Especially if his Windows 7 computer has 2GB of RAM or more and a dual core or better processor. He can just snag a spin of Mint or Ubuntu with the MATE or XFCE desktop environment, give the VM about 512 to 768MBs of RAM, 10 to 20GB of hard drive space, and he'd be all set to compile the SDK. Setting up (and troubleshooting) a Cygwin/minigw environment in Windows just makes an already steep learning curve that much steeper ...
but there is a version already online for PC that is precompiled, just download it
Is it true that there was a Linux Live Boot CD specially made with the PS2 SDK already pre-compiled and setup on it?
It would make things easier for Windows users if that were true.
