Actually, I am a very newbie to the PS2. I do want to use this Atari emulator but HOW CAN I do it ? I really have no idea and beg for your patience. Can some one explain how to install this to me in plain english ?
just put everything on your harddisk or memory card and play, it's that easy. If you don't know how to put things there start reading it's been explained a dozen of times allready ( this is my first post and i'm a newbie 2 but i hate posting, more time waiting for an answer if you will ever get one ). Also the readme says there is untested support for cd so the easiest would be put everything in an iso with eg ultraiso, magiciso, ... ( make sure joliet and all enhancement options are disabled ) all files only use CAPITALS, that there is a FILES.TXT in the root of the cd that contains the links as explained in readme. o when making a cd i read that you don't put your roms in a folder but also in the root of the cd. That should basicly be it

NEED HELP_building & booting PCVS ON CD.......from Scratch –
ive tried building an atari cd since i dont know how to transfer it to memcard i havent got a cable to connect it to a pc
(if anyone could post a thread to how you transfer it to memcard that would be cool) this is how far ive got. PLEASE comment on any thing that looks wrong or post pictures using -print screen on keyboard and pasting into microsoft word file
copied system.cnf from ps2 media player
(opened up system.cnf with txt file and copied the elf name )
and renamed pcvs.elf into ps2mediaplay.elf
made a sub dir ROMS & put in my roms
edited the FILES.TXT like - Command,ROMS/Command.bin & with the rest.
FILES.TXT is left in the root dir
Burned to disc using nero Making a straight data disc
wmy pcvs disk is burned and ready
i boot up with swap magic 3.6 plus
load up the disk by pressing square - special boot
loads up to the main menu
i press load from cd & it quickly loads to cd and i can see the roms folder
but when i click on that i briefly get a txt saying (Loading.......) then it switches to memcard
if a memcard is in it will display all my save files an when i click on one it says
NO ROM FOUND a bit backwards if you ask me
when i tried it with PVCS 1.2 i get the roms that i listed. but when i clik on one i get ERROR LOADING ROM.
i know i'm new and youve probably already mentioned how to do it but ive wasted about 20 cds trying to do it ive read through this whole site an didnt find what i was after what we need is a good STEP BY STEP guide on to Build and how to load the pvcs programme with pictures so spastics like me can follow it piece by piece trust me it would save a lot of time for people who are as computer literate as those long time hackers PLEASE show some love for those who wanna raz the atari
I've run in a similar problem then I removed the FILES.TXT file and PVCS can browse the files directly. It is less user friendly but it works.
The Silly Mistake –
ive got it sussed now yeah. i still build it up with the system file from ps2 media player cause i dont know how to make then ( if any one know please post a FAQ for it respect ) put in the roms in the folder and like egodoy found out you don't need to spend hors writing a txt file you dont even need it but leave an empty one jus in case now heres the best part. when you've loaded the program very quickly tap the x and all the roms you put in the folder will show.
if you hold the button for even half a second you ll skip thru the roms and into the memcard and into the memcard error
i then went back to test all the coasters i did by jus tapping X quickly and they all worked
I felt like a right cunt for wasting all thoses CDs but i got there in the end
now me and my girld jus spend all night playing 2 player combat together
AINT LIFE GRAND
I'm just getting a black screen, no messages or anything.
If you have the dvd remote plugged into port 2, I have heard it will not initialize the pads correctly. Hopefully that is your problem.
