List of hdd supported apps and emus, pin
List of hdd supported apps and emus, pin –
i was thinking of having a list of available homebrew stuff that is supported by the hdd. and having another list that is bootable from the hdloader.
i dont know of any, since im new. but others can post, and i will edit the main topic then.
also for emus, put if the roms are playable from hdd, mc or a cd.
well ps2menu and altimit do allow you to run quite a few apps, if installed correctly. Here is the catch, hope i can explain this as clear as possible so that everyone can understand.
PS2Menu and altimit have a small driver(IRX modules) inside of them called fakehost. Basically what this does is fool apps that can run from naplink, pukklink or ps2link (often called running from network) into thinking that they are, in actuality being run from those apps mentioned above instead of from the hard drive. Unfortunately this doesnt work for apps that run strictly from cdrom or apps that flush the IOP. the IOP is the driver side of the ps2, so what this does is flush all of the drivers. Since fakehost is a driver and if that elf clears the IOP before executing the code then there would be no fakehost installed in order to redirect those calls to the files on the hdd. However, there isnt much to worry about, most apps that run from network do not reset the IOP because naplink, pukklink and ps2link also load drivers.
If the app does reset the iop/run from cdrom there is a small chance you can get it running.
First, how would you know if an app resets the IOP?
Run it from naplink, pukklink or ps2link. Look at the pc side console window and it should let you know if the IOP gets flushed. In naplink the console window stats "Get Reboot Request From EE". You can try to search and remove the IOP call using a dissasembler(very difficult for the average person) and then hex edit all of the cdrom0:/ %s ;1 calls to host:%s
This goes slighly off track but i hope it at least helps you understand some of the concepts behing it.
