I've got a modded V4 PS2(MI w/ latest firmware) and I have a suitable HD for the thing. I've installed HDLoader 0.7 awhile back but I was not impressed with the success rate at which games booted... out of the 12 or so that I dumped I think only 3 worked. I didn't know about switching modes so I'm about to give it a whirl witht he newest version of HDL.
My questions are as follow...
1. What would be my best plan of action? I want to beable to use the HD to play games to prolong my PS2's laser.
2. What is uLaunchELF and what is it capable of doing? IE.. can it boot games?
3. Are DVD9 games working on HD?
4. Are there game specific patches for compatability with HDL and if so where are they found?
I'm going to do more google searches and browse through the forums here to try and answere some of my own questions but PLEASE help the newbert out. I don't want to replace another lens in my ps2.
