First up: Welcome to PSX-scene!
Sorry, but you're not allowed to request help on getting pirated software to run here.

I did all of that, to the tee and yet my game gets stuck on the ps1 logo screen, any ideas why?
From my own understanding of the swap trick used here, it needs to be done precisely at the right time.
If you're talking about installing FMCB, then you need a Playstation 2 Memory Card.
now i would be interested in softmodding my ps2 but the tutorial on here by dv8 doesnt specify whether i need a ps1/ps2 memory card, and it also requires a modded ps2 in order to get the boot files unto the memory in the first place... so doesnt that defeat the purpose of softmodding
However, there currently isn't a way to run Playstation games without a modchip (Or some swap trick)...
However there's a new Playstation emulator that's still in the works.
There isn't a way to, until that Playstation emulator that's still under development is released.
I did see that he gave other ways of loading the boot files via the cheat device CDs but i dont own any and i dont have a hd either, so basically what can i do to run burnt ps1 games on my nonmodded ps2 ? (preferably without having to purchase anything other than like black CD-rs lol)
