hopeing a master will set me straight
im trying to set up a ps2 as a kind of rom library. i have a few valuable ps1 games (ff7 black case, lunar 1&2) and an extensive nes snes collection. i want to purchase and set up a ps2 so that i wont have to plug in my snes just to play mario kart when my cousin comes over (the only time n the past 5 years ive used it...). i know that esr and fmcb are by far the easiest way of doing the emulators and ps2 games but id love to just box up my ps1 games as well... will hdloader allow me to play backup ps1 games? or should i get a chip? ive heard that they can fry a laser but if hdloader wont play ps1 i think ill have to risk it.
