hdl_dumx-0.8.5 released –
2006-06-18: hdl_dump/hdl_dumb/server 0.8.5 has been released;
Source: Official hdl_dump site
+ better differentiation between CD- and DVD-images/medias
+ server will look for IPCONFIG.DAT at mc0:/B?DATA-SYSTEM/, too
+ optional auto-tunning of throttling algorithm
+ partitioning type auto-detection
+ new command for hdl_dump: diag
~ minor fix of dual-layer support code
~ hdl_toc lists raw size now, not allocated size
~ extract can now be interrupted with Ctrl+C
Nice, I'll test it on Mac OS X as soon as possible.
What is the real difference between inject_cd and inject_dvd option in hdl_dump ? If we make a mistake because we don't know if we have a cd or dvd image (but it's less than 700 MB of course) will it prevent from launching the game ?
Won't install games for me. Everything works fine up until the point of sending an iso image. Then cpu usage hits 100, computer stops responding (or, responds....very....slowly....). What the heck? Happens with both dump and dumb. Also with 0.8.4 versions. However, 0.8.1 versions work fine, as do (IIRC) 0.8.3 versions.
Has anyone else had this problem? I'd quite like to use the newer/faster editions. ^_^
Perhaps a stupid question, but did you update the hdld_svr.elf file on your PS 2 ?
Not a stupid question at all, but yes, I did. ^_^ Each time I tested it, I matched the appropriate .elf with the corresponding .exe. I should have mentioned that in my previous post.
It's very strange, it just suddenly stops working after the upgrade.
With this newest HDL_dumb, HDL_svr and also HDL, can I now transfer and play DVD9 games without a hitch?
As I understand it, the main difference in the newer HDL_Dump versions is that they now use UDP protocol for all transfers instead of TCP. That is what accounts for most of the speed improvement, but it may also cause a problem for your network.
Possibly you have some network software running on your PC (possibly a firewall), which reacts to this UDP traffic in some way that causes the CPU 'hogging' that you described. Even without CPU hogging it's also possible for such software to block unexpected protocol transfers, thus preventing correct game installation for these new versions of HDL_Dump.

i used this last nite to transfer gta_lcs
no problems at all here, guess i won't need Lord Bigimi's anymore (good work btw)
avg transfer rate was 1.8mbps
PS2 Version 3 with Neo 4.1: 44 wires
80gb Maxtor HDD
Works with DMS4's ToxicOS peeps!
Able to see the whole HDD, including the APAEXT slice (over 128Gb) and it works just fine!
An incredibly cool new feature ihmo!
Maybe it's my HD it doesn't like, it's just a seagate 120 gig drive, but I've tried every version from the latest down to 0.8.3a and it quits transfering data at almost the mid way point, I've got lot's of free space left on my drive too, no problems connecting to the drive, etc.
I don't get it.
