HDLoader - Weird?
hey, i have always thought that you needed your disc in the drive in order to load a game from HDL...
then i noticed something today, if i had my tray open when i start HDL from the MC, it stops at the splash screen. proceeds to main only after I close the tray... another thing i noticed is that i could play any game as long as I had a disc in the drive...
is this the way it should be?? can anyone clarify? :banghead:
i think there's a fix for that for the v9 thanks to Zero, do a search
I had that fix applied. But thats for disc spinning.
for me with a v6 if i have the tray open it stop working (it stops at the splash screen) then if i open the tray after that i can play games normally i think there isn't a patch for this thing
does it proceeed loading after u close the tray without disc?
btw, does this thing need or dun need a disc in tray to play the installed game? i haven't had time to try, looking for some quick answers...
I have the original backup of hdloader, no extra additions or patches to it.
here is what I do. I boot into ps2menu, then take my ps1 trigger disc out and close the tray with nothing in it. Finally, I loade HDLoader from a partition on my hdd, and it goes from the splash screen straight to the games list. Then I choose a game and play it. There is still no disc in the drive.
Is this what you were asking about? You couldve tried this on your own...its not a secret either..
I beleive it's simply the cdvd.irx module needing to load to hijack the calls to the hdd. for some reason, it needs to be closed, with or without a disc in. Try to start up ps2menuk while the tray is open. samething. it hangs on the cdvd.irx until you close the tray, with or without disc.
