Im new to the ps2 scene and have been reading and searching this site for a few hours and am a little confused at a few things. id rather not chip my ps2 im experienced at soldering but those points are damn small. I want to be able to back my games up to a hd i have lieing around which should hold all my games, Im reading about the memory card thing and hd dump and stuff but i cant find out whats required for them all...
if i want to load my games from the HD do i have to do some swap thing everytime i wanna play one?
whats required for a MC hack to work with loading games from the HD if thats even possible, I see some stuff about using a psx game but cant find all the right info.
and whats required for hdl_dump? does it need that HD loader disc that isnt around anymore or will it work with hd advance, or can it work with a MC hack?
and is there any diff from hd loader and hd advance?
