Recommended for Dev –
Hey guys, I have been lurking on this forum for a month or so, and two weeks ago I finally decided to break down and purchase a Gameshark (v1.3, only $16 at the local Wal-Mart) to softmod my PS2. So far, so good. I managed to get FMCB installed and all of my discs work perfectly with ESR (yay for no coasters).
That aside, I've got a few questions.
One. Aside from the tutorials on ps2dev and a few pages I've found online, are there any recommended references (books, etc.) that might help me out for PS2 development?
Two. Are there any specific distros that are good for ps2dev? I'm thinking about reconfiguring Gentoo, Ubuntu, or Slax to have the ps2dev tools and burning it to a livecd or make it bootable from a thumbdrive. (only because space is limited on my laptop hd and I don't feel like wiping the drive)
Lastly. Is there an ELF other than uLE that handles gamesaves (copying to and from USB)? I was hoping there was a program that worked and looked like the PS2's native browser (gui, icons, straightforward save names), but I didn't find any...
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

There is no homebrew gamesave browser available which displays the same 3D icons that the Sony browser shows.

Simply browse to the MC root directory and then press the L1 button to bring up the Display+Sort popup, where you can choose how files and folders should be displayed and sorted.
The default display mode is "Filename + Details" as that is most useful for homebrew work, but for gamesave usage it is preferable to switch mode to "Game Title + Details".
You can also switch the sort mode to have the gamesaves sorted by "Game Title" instead of the normal "Filename" sort, but I prefer to keep that even when displaying titles, because this way the saves from different region versions of the same game are kept separate. If I used the "Game Title" sort they would be mixed together, and it would be hard to tell them apart, as the game titles shown never show the region info.
