first of i apologize if this is in the wrong section because it is a combo of like 2 or 3.
the idea of this post in my eyes is to make and test ps2 elf files on bc ps3s.
so far this is what ive got working on my bc ps3 with OFW 4.00 and swapmagic 3.8. feel free to contribute.
openps2loader- working but revisions are iffy i personally had to use r590 to get games to boot via network. USB IS UNTESTED ON MY HALF
UPDATED: uLaunchelf- working full usb support i used 4.27 for ps3. USB access is extremely fickle (ULAUNCHELF IS NOT MADE FOR PS3 WHEN I SAY FOR PS3 I MEAN A VERSION THAT HAD IRX FILES ADDED FROM OTHER VERSIONS OF ULAUNCHELF AND PSX LOADER)
more that ive tried but failed to load.
UPDATED: codebreaker .92- boots to black screen tried launching from usb and ps3 vmc with ulaunch and smboot from swapmagic. A codebreaker v9.3 retail disc is reported to work and allow cheats on ps2 games. After getting a disc i will look more into the 9.3 elf files
swapmagic coder retail disk- black screen tried reloading swapmagic after inputting codes to go to smboot
gsm- shows pretty logo then hangs at black screen. same results from ps3 vmc and usb via ulaunch
UPDATE: ESR- elf file loads. the ps3 allows you to switch discs without resetting. after hitting launch disc it hangs at the purple screen
more i think ppl would like to see but i personally havent tried
hdloader/advance/etc- anyone waiting for this i personally wouldnt get my hopes up too high
psx loader- im sure ppl would love to see this but idk how theyd swap a disk without taking ps3 apart
and more idk
AGAIN, feel free to contribute. i have yet to come across a cumulative compatibility list or guides. i hope this expands and we get a full legitimate list and maybe even txt pdf downloadable guides or something similar
