Nope, that will not work.

No, OPL works with more games (by far) and I would say, the compatibility is over 90%.
- I would like to only use the USB loader but it states that it only works on 50% of all games!
However, CGIs/FMVs/Movies can stutter, due to the slow USB-Data-rate and it's implementation into the PS2.
Even with an internal HDD, you wouldn't need HDLoader.
AGH, this means i would need to go with the HD Loader, but my problem here is i would need a Sony PS2 network adapter - which i have none.
OPL can handle internal HDs, too and you mustn't read thoroughly through the OPL-Guides, to see that...
...not anything? ...not even efforts?
Would cost around $50? I really did not want to spend anything on this hack,
Yes, but burning your disk might cost you more in the long run, than using imiges.
the only other option is the ESR app
Beside that, a laser is a mechanical part and will worn out, over time.
While I think, the patching-process is as easy as it could be (uber-uoob-friendly), but I see the point about 'moving away' from disc-usage.
but that requires patching and burning disks and well, the original intention is to move away from disks!
It has increased a lot.
Q.2 : Most of the guides etc i have seen are old, has the 50% compatibility been increased?
, would be nice if it has,
I think, it is over 90%-Compatibility and even offers saving to USB, if played from there and InGameReset. (IGR)
...while at max. 75%, of all games run with USB-Advance and only with some patch-tricks and beside that, USBA doesn't offer the extra-options, like VMC, IGR, Compatibility-Modes,...
Well, beside playing from the HD, the Network-Adapter is off full usage for your FAT PS".
Q.3 : Does anyone know of anywhere i can pickup a Sony PS2 network adapter for cheap? Living in Europe btw.
Thats it, the idea of playing games off the USB is really brilliant, but unfortunately the restrictions of not having a full quota of games to choose from is a little annoying. Obviously the internal HD option of HDloader is the way to go for me but that restriction of having to buy that part is also holding me back.
Anyway, cheers in advance for anyone able to answer my questions,
You can use the LAN-Conection to play your movies/mp3s or games over it from a PC or NAS.
...or use the internal HD for an entire music-collection + ROM-Collection + PS2-Linux + Games + whatnot...
