Help a noob out w/ FMCB
Help a noob out w/ FMCB –
Hi all, thanks in advance for helping out.
I have four ps2s right now, 1 SCPH-30001 and 3 SCPH-39001. I tried installing FMCB newbie pack using the disc swap method (MGS3, replacing NETDOWN ELF). When I do the disc swap trick in my 30001, uLaunchElf loads fine, but when I pick MASS, the system just hangs. I've tried 4 different usb sticks, made sure they're formatted FAT32, tried both USB ports on the PS2... always the same, it just hangs and I need to reboot the system. For what it's worth, the indicator lights on the USB sticks light up, and they start to flicker when I pick MASS as if the PS2 is trying to access them. All 4 sticks are of different sizes and by different manufacturers so I think the odds of all four of them being incompatible are pretty slim...
When I try the disc swap in the 39001, I get the red screen prompting me to put in a genuine PS2 disc, so I can't even get as far as launching uLaunchELF.
Anyone have any ideas?
disk swapping was always problematic for me.
I had great success with softmodding once I bought a copy of Action Replay. Came with a tiny 32mb usb but was pretty simple to replace the .elf file on the usb with ulaunch or whatever you want. Another option is if you have someone else with FMCB already installed, they can install it for you.
If I recall there's an option in ulaunch to reset it IOP. Doubt that would do any good for the issue you have but that's all I can think of off the top of my head.
Lastly, you can send a memcard in to one of the nice volunteers you see listed in the forums. Won't cost you much, just shipping cost and some patience while you wait.
You might be able to run the installer from a CD using uLaunch. Not sure how you would go about it though. I know you can use uLaunch to do a swap trick.
what version of uLE did you use?
