Hi guys. I decided to dig my PS2 out of the closet and get into some of the great RPGS I bought years ago and never played. I have a fat PS2 modded with a DMS4 lite. The laser is just about dead and if I remember correctly, fails to read any disc retail or burnt about %99 of the time. So back in the day, I did a bunch of research and ended up having to FTP HD loader to my MC and play games off an HDD because of the laser problem. I did it with the help of the old DMS3 website which appears to have vanished. I have googled my brains out trying to find out a way switch the boot elfs of these two programs on the MC so I can enjoy the increased compatibility (maybe should have bought a pro and went with toxicOS?).
I was thinking of trying to install Open PS2 loader via dvd (1% is still a chance I suppose ) or USB stick. i don't even remember how to access the MC in the toxic bios though and support for this chip seems non existent now considering they are no longer needed thanks to the new exploits. If the dvd option wont work, I am willing to try the FTP way also if needed.
I guess I am not really looking for a step-by-step (although that would be totally cool if anyone had the time). I dont mind doing the research and any info anyone can give me or a point in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time in advance,
