How long does it take you to load your HDA ?
How long does it take you to load your HDA ? –
as stated above:
how long does it take you from pushing the ON/Off button till you can scroll through the HDA-menu? I use the CD-based 48bit-version of HDA 2.0 and I need about 35 seconds. Is there a way to modify my cd (dummy files etc.) to make it boot faster?
I'm think mine takes around 40 seconds from the on button, it's a little longer since i'm using launchelf to boot hdl. The amount of games that you have on your hd also affects the loading speed of hdl.
I would say from pressing X at the launchelf menu it take about 10 seconds.
mine is like around 10. i got the free version on a compressed cd.
iv got mine set up so if i want exeftps hold triangle, hdldump hold circle dont hold anyhting and it loads custom hdloader with all patches.. or u could hold square and play nintendo games i have a 200 GB segate and it takes about 6 seconds for the screen to load up 84 games
To show launchelf 4secs, and from pressing X to gamelist 7 secs...I have a maxtor 120 with 70 games installed.
PS2 V10 NTSC / MI v1.82 / ULE 3.80 / SMS 1.7.5 / HDL 0.8 / 300G HDD
I think loading time might have something to do with the fragmentation of the installed games. I found that deleting ans installing games slowed down the loading times, but fresh installs with no deletes was faster,
from pushing the PS2 ON button to the select menu (HDA) it is just 10 sec? That can't be true since the sony and the PS2 logo make up even more than 10 Secs.
When booting directly from MC using Devolution mode 1, no logos are shown. Instead some elf is launched with a minimum of delay. Usually that will be some browser/launcher (like LaunchELF) which can very quickly launch the HDLoader elf.

I'm talking about delay that one normally sees from the hdloader splash screen, to it displaying the list of games, it used to be around a 15-20 second delay before the list came up, now it's around 5 seconds as a result of moving my hdloader to the hd itself instead of the mc.
