usb versus network
just gave open ps2 loader a try on my ps2 slim. awsome concept, but understandably slow being the ps2 has usb 1. my question is, since open ps2 loader suports loading games via the network adapter, would the games preform better that way then on usb ? just wanted to know befor i went and spent money on a new network cable.
short answer yes OPL runs most games from network fast and almost all game FMV run perfect :)
ok, i went out and bought a network cable and got every thing working .... kinda...........thing is games are actualy laggin worse now ..... and some games that are said to be almost perfect are lagging pretty bad....... so here is what i did. i dont have any spare drives that are not about full, all i had was 350 gb on my secondary internal drive, and didnt want to risk resizing the partition on it, so i used windows 7 feature of creating a vhd (virtual hard disk image, and mounted it, and installed all my games on it. they work but like i said, every last one lags .... bad ....... and they all have very long load times when a load screen comes up. preformance is even worse than on sd card in a usb adapter. is the virtual drive causing this to happen ???
dude unmount that create a Folder named PS2SMB inside that folder create a folder named DVD and CD and VMC and just put iso's in said folder then share over network it do's not mater with windows if if even the iso's are compressed to save space and can even be NTFS the lag is caused by the vertual drivers while shares is almost instantaneous
