Hdloader with cd-r backups
Hdloader with cd-r backups –
I couldn`t find an answer to my question on the forum. That`s why i started this thread. I have installed some cd-r backups on my hard-disk with hdloader. But when i start them they only show a loading screen, then they just lock-up and i have to reboot. But when i insert the cd-r they wil play fine. But the purpose was to play the games without the cd-r and just from the hd. I`ve got an Neo 2.0 chip in my console and use the region-x cd to boot the cd-r games normal. That`s one of the reasons for me to buy a hard disk. Swapping disc`s get`s me annoyed. Sorry for the bad english by the way.
Can somebody help me with this matter? Thanx in advance!
ps. official ps2 dvd`s works fine from my hd.
Some PS2 CD games work with HDLoader, some don't. Taiko no Tatsujin #3 (Spotlight) for example, only works from CD. But Taiko no Tatsujin #4 (MRN) works fine from HDLoader.
i experience similar problems. i have only been testing with hdloader for the past few days but i am not able to boot my cd-r games. the cd-r backups are ripped versions of dvd games. i have used hdl dump to install the games to the hdd but it does not boot when i start the game. i have tried chaning the modes using a combination of 1,2,3 but no luck. the last game i was testing with was psi-ops. all my dvd games boot fine whether they are original or backup.
all the DVD-Rips that i burned on CD-R worked on HDD for me. I have tried about 5 of them, and they all worked
did you use hdl dump to transfer the game to the hard drive? how did you install the cd-r games?

I have Tekken Tag, Capcom VS. SNK 2, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, REZ, ICO, and a few more I can't remember right now.
What you might want to do is play with the different mode settings within HDloader.
Load the games to your hd. play the cd-r based game. if it doesn't play, hit Select, and toggle the switches. if it doesn't work in one setting, try a different setting till you get it to load. And still, there's no guarantee that it would load at all. Again, it's just some games are a pain in the ass. Good luck!
I think the game that lucje is referring to is Gradius V
the locked "now loading" sounds like the clue.
well. i've got no clue either.
maybe there's a patch/hacked hdloader someday down the road =)
otherwise. the only non-mondchip way to play games like contra/gradius is swap/slide card method
Possibly search the hdloader compatibility list, for the settings you need for the game your trying.
i have only gotten 2 cd-r games to boot. hitman contracts and mister mosquito. i tried capcom vs snk chaos and bloody roar 4 but they do not boot. i have a alot more cd-r games but it takes like 20 mins to transfer it through hdl_dump over the network.
SVC Chaos does work. Check your iso.
Gradius V does not work at all.
