Damn Black Screen
No way to make any applications installed into MC running.
I've followed all the tutorials i've found to make the MC exploit working, but no way.
Just after the PS2 begin to run my PS1 game (Spiderman or Urban Chaos), i've got this damn black screen.
On the memory card, i've tried ps2menu as boot.elf, ps2os, keylauncher, hdloader, or ExecFTP but nothing want to launch.
I've tried on a V9 and a V4.
I've tried by burning CD method, and via FTP, but nothing.
What I've done :
Is there anyone who can give me a new idea ?
Giving Up ???
No Way, I'm not of that kind.
neither am i m8 , but surly the answer is that no one has a solution to this problem. so i just forget about it and go on.
Don't give up, I had EXACTLY the same problem!
two solutions that worked for me:
a) download the hd loader exploit from zxspeky's site (http://homepage.ntlworld.com/zxspeky/)
modify title.db as usual, then use the SwapMagic 3.0 CD, swap for CD Loader, swap for exploit CD
b) use the hd loader exploit posted above, but replace the boot.elf (which in this case is ps2menu-k) with launchelf 3.02 (rename to boot.elf if necessary, and overwrite). Has the advantage that you can set up launchelf to directly boot into HDL, without having to start it manually.
This worked for me even though I simply got a black screen with all other exploits, on my unmodded v9 PAL PS2
Once you got this to work, you can do whatever you want with HDL, its not too picky. Right now I'm using launchELF with a renamed HDLoader with ZeroX's patches applied, new bootscreens, and recompressed with an alternate compression algorhythm, and it works like a charm!
All right !
I'll try as soon as I leave office.
Thanks a lot, I 'll keep you informed
whatz diz , launchelf 3.02 works and mnu-k dont :chinscrat thats a joke :fencing: i tried that too and same thing , just forget about it already....but go ahead and find out for youeself. :badpc:
