can't get hdl 0.8b to work ?!
can't get hdl 0.8b to work ?! –
I tried to patch a clean hdloader elf several times, but when i start a game i always get a bsod ?
do i have to press any buttons during startup of hdl ? i'm running hdl from mc, worked fine until now. anyone got same problem ?
For me it only launches from MASS, not from MC
if the hdl is patched with the /S flag then you need a disc in the drive or else you get the bsod when you launch a game try putting in a disc
what type of disc? a game? dvd/cd? i tried with a cd with media player, but it didn't work.
I use M R Brown( So I always have a disc in the tray ),
and HDL 08b only works when launched from launchELF and
08b resides on MASS ( USB memory stick ) attempting to launch 08b from MC results in black screen. And both files are the same binary.
It works fine from both the MC and my 300 GB Segate HDD no problem.

/C - Compatibility options update (press SELECT to access).
/B - Bigger game list (fit more titles on screen).
/L - LBA 48bit patch (allows full use of HDDs up to 2 terabytes).
/M - (U/M)DMA-transfermode selector (READ THE README!!!).
/IS - Patch splash image (512x448 24bit BMP, 32bit TGA & interleaved RAW).
/IM - Patch main image (512x448 24bit BMP, 32bit TGA & interleaved RAW).
/IB - Patch button image (128x64 24bit BMP, 32bit TGA & interleaved RAW).
/IC - Patch colors (/IC colors.txt, see readme).
/IT - Patch texts (/IT texts.txt, see readme).
hdl.exe = HD Loader Patcher v0.8b (ZerO-X & crazyc)
hdl.elf = I used both "the pure clean unpacked protected HDLoader taken from the original retail disc" and "the cracked 'free' version".
hdlv08_small.elf = Output of commands (Patched HD Loader v0.8b ELF) ***SMALL GAME LIST***
hdlv08_big.elf = Output of commands (Patched HD Loader v0.8b ELF) ***BIG GAME LIST***
Finally, I used ps2-packer 0.4.1 to compress the HDL v0.8b patched ELF file.
EDIT: Also note, I have a v7 PS2 (in my signature), which is why I didn't use any of the v9 options.

patched clean elf with gui (48-bit and compability modes only). booting loader from mass or from mc with cd in drive doesn't work.
try patching with dos command line now, hope it works then.
