What's the fastest way to start HDLoader w/o using a DMS modchip?
I currently use a hdlpatch_0.3 patched HDLoader with a black background menu bitmap. I then crunched it with PS2-Packer0.4 to 374kb size and load it using a modified system.cnf startup file.
Another way would be to use a PS1 disc and the mc exploit with modified boot.elf to load directly into the HDLoader.
I don't use this method, because my modded PS2 doesn't load PS1 games every time and I don't want spending my time resetting
Are there much faster ways to start HDLoader? Is it possible to remove the splash screen for faster loading?
I have my elf down to 192k and thats a black background with an imitation Playstation logo, it seems that zero's patch significantly helps the compressed file size. I boot using the psx1 disc exploit and it is so much more reliable that booting from disk.
A trick for keeping your elf down is to save your simple bmp's as 256 colour and back to 24 bit - seems to help the compression
I just patched a second time with /IS and a black bitmap, now it's 162kb
But a way to load into HDLoader w/o splash at all would be the best solution.
'no splash' would not fix the speed as far as that goes, because it still needs to load all the modules for it to work. That happens duing the splash screen
