Hey guys. I'm trying to setup hdloader on a friend's mem card. The ps2 has no mods, including swap magic, etc. I'm using Metal Gear Solid:VR Missions as the ps1 trigger disk, however, after the sony intro screen (cubes, etc) I get a bright red screen. I've been using this site http://lookatthemonkeys.com/html/ps2tut.html to check this stuff out.
I put the necessary files (cdvd.irx, expinst.elf, system.cnf, title.db, and the files folder) into the BADATA folder, using my modded ps2 and ftp. Is there something I'm doing wrong, or is the ps1 game I'm using at fault? Thanks for any help. Also, it would be great if it were possible to make hdloader the boot.elf such as with modchips. Thank you.
Edit: I just installed the mc exploit using a cd- it said installation complete. This time I used Gran Turismo as the trigger disk. I still get the red screen after the Sony cubes intro.
