PS2 ELF launching/HD navigation software comparison
PS2 ELF launching/HD navigation software comparison –
OK guys, I'm in for a change here. I'm getting tired of my LaunchELF 3.33 and seriously consider getting a new application for my exploit autoboot to launch ELFs from or manage files/partitions on my HD.
I'm wondering what's the best software of choice that can do that for me at the moment. One of the main reasons I haven't already switched to a different software ist that there are virtually no thorough reviews or descriptions on the various tools that allow you to launch ELFs from and navigate the HDD, USB and network. I don't want to waste my time experimenting with all the different stuff out there so I'm hoping for your help.
I'd like to know what you are using to get your PS2 homebrew stuff running, your booting methods (chip/exploit etc.) and personal preferences.
So far, the software list of choice includes the following: (feel free to add more!)
- BootAdvance (fairly new and promising afaik)
I have only used an old version of KeyLauncher before and am currently using LaunchELF. I'm highly interested in descriptive SCREENSHOTS from the above, so if you can provide material, please post here!
Thanks in advance!
hate to tell you, but launch elf is your best bet for most stuff.
ps2menu 2.6 has support for osmething called UMCDR, which is a dead cd format readable by unmodded ps2. it was ripped by Datel for se wit h their AR MAX.
ps2menu 2.6, however, has a bug in it's hard dirve library that can corrupt partitions however i've had trouble copying to HD with launch elf as well. ps2os looks cool, but seemed more unstable.
i would upgrade to 3.4b and you have the best laucnher around
I am 100% agree with you and I'm using the latest LaunchELF 3.41.It's really small application (only 125kb) and I'm not worry having it eaten up space in my memcaard.The rest of the elfs are launch from my thumbdrive.

No, I don't think that works. It never has for me anyway...

This is weird, as I still can launch Altimit fine from LaunchELF, so it isn't the size of the disk that's preventing it from working, but some other and more HDL-specific problem.
