Beginer Need In Some Advice –
Hello have just realised about this PS2 HD loading thing and are slightly confused.
1st thing Is HDadvance a Swap disc program as well as a HD loading program so will I be able to load Backup/Import games without haveing it chipped not that I have any but would like to know for future reference.
2nd thing What is beter HDadvance or HDloader and what are the advantages/disadvantages of each
3rd thing hdl_dump will that connect to the HDD inside the PS2 through a network cable can it be a crossover cable and is this only for HDloader or is there a HDadvance alternative.
any other things I mighjt need to know would be appreciated before I start the HDD instalation would be appreciated.
Thanks for any informantion you can give me would be great.
you know dazz theres a feature on this forum called search. i dont mean to be rude or anything but its there for a reason. all your questions can be answered by a simple search. the only one that is a bit hard to find is the 3rd one. hdl_dump can either be connected to the computer through ide or crossover network cable provided you find someway to run hdld_svr.elf . and hdloader and hdadvance are the same so it doesnt matter the files on the hdd will be read by either these programs.
Thanks I should have done that but are very limited in time and wanted to know fast will try and reaserch beter next time. But after looking at all the posts On HDAdvance I am still confused Will the 2 disc HDAdvance allow me to import Backups/Imports with out the need of Swap Magic Discs. Is That why there are 2 discs to allow it to be used as a swap disc and will that allow me to play the backup disc from the disc as well as copy it to the Hard Drive.
no the 2 boot disc are as follows for hdadvance: 1 CD version and 1 DVD version. the reason is if you wanted to install an ORIGINAL (not backup youd have to swap to install that) game then there are 2 types of media ps2 use. 1 is CD-R and the other is DVDR. the point of 2 disc is so you can install a CD-R game using CD version or DVDR game by DVD version. it is in no way an alternative to swap magic disc since it cannot boot backups. it does however let you copy backups through slide card or flip top to your hdd which can be later played.
