Rediscovering PS2 modding after 7 years---where do I restart?
Rediscovering PS2 modding after 7 years---where do I restart? –
I got an old SCPH-30001, A PS2 Network/HDD adapter and an old IDE hard drive.
In 2005, my PS2 laser died and I started to play with soft-mods to see if I could play my games from a hard drive.
IIRC, I somehow got a softmod onto the memory card... when it boots, it goes into PS2Menu 2.6b
From there, I can F T P into the mc, and I think HDD.. run HDLoader, etc.
Compatibility sucks, I never got most games working right and the whole thing is a bust TBH.
I want to accomplish a few things, I need answers and/or instructions to do the following, and I do not know where to post it.
#1 - Is there an upgrade to PS2Menu 2.6b?
*I think all I'd do is make sure there was a boot. elf in the BOOT dir of the MC..*
But I don't have the magic swap discs anymore, I do not want to break this mod, but PS2menu is clunky as hell.*
#2 - openps2loader is the reason why I am here. Does it ALWAYS require a USB or SMB windows share to run games?
#3 - Is there a PSOne network streaming / hdd option available?
#4 - Better FTP program, or is EXECFTP the defacto standard?
#5 - Anything else cool that's been developed over the last 7-8 years that can give me some life back into this glorious machine?
Thank you in advance!
1 best bet is FMCB
2 OPL works for internal HD USB and SMB and no you can use one of any or all together
3 well their is emulator that allows PS1 but is it spotty
4 with PS2 games WinHIIP_V1.7.6 for internal is used or hdl_dump of some kind to FTP for like your own partion or MC is ok but I use RadHostClient.exe
5 Yea a lot but mostly PS2 compatibility is high for OPL their is some emulators too and SMS player to run avi movies
SCPH-30001 with Network adapter SCPH-10281
PSP 2G 6.60 PRO CFW Perm PSP 6.20 GO PRO Perm
Official FHDB v1.92
OPL self compiled HD and SMB preferred
Is how all good gaming systems came to be
