I have tried EVERYTHING. I have gone through over 20 CD-R's and about 10 different tutorials all with different files. No matter what, I have not gotten the HDLoader exploit to run when I insert my psx game. I get the installation complete message every time.
So, when I gave up on that, I used the Gameshark swap method to just run HDLoader from a CD I burned. I can back up games on there, see them, change their modes, and everything else. I changed the modes to every combination possible and I still get nothing but a black screen when I try to play them with an orange light inside my PS2 that turns on for like a second when it seems to be reading the hard drive and goes off.
I also read about changing the SYSTEM.CNF file to use the "GameName.ELF" file instead of it's SLUS name but none of the games I'm trying have that kind of .ELF file
I have a version 4 PS2 and am using the Gameshark swap method as of right now to load HDLoader since I can't get the exploit started. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!! I'm dying to get this working. I've tried about a million different things. And it's not something simple like adding the correct SLUS name to TITLE.DB using titleman or any other simple solution like that. I don't mean to sound like an ungrateful bastard who doesn't need your petty help, cuz I do need help, I guess I'm just hoping that one of you will have the solution I need or will know how to go about helping me. Thanks guys.
