God of war the easy way!
God of war the easy way! –
If you want to play god of war from your hdd without any problem the following way is the easiest way to do that.
Things you need are original god of war, Hdadvance 2.0 and a copy of newest version of patched hdloader available to download (the one which has dvd 9 support).
Once you have all these things boot hdadvance and go to convert new game, start converting god of war dvd. You will note that in the status panel of hdadvance, game size of GOW is only 3 gb which is impossible because the original size of GOW is around 8 gb but don't worry let the process end and you will have your converted god of war image occuping only 3 gb of the hdd. Now if you try to play it through hdadvance the game will freeze on "sony computer entertainment present" screen with every possible combination of modes enabled so don't bother doing that just reset the game and boot hdloader patched and make sure the GOW image has all the modes set to "no". The game can be played perfectly, I ended the game from total beginning to end on normal difficulty and didn't have any problem except one game trailer in extras, the one which is on 2nd no. and is played by pressing the x button only that trailer can freeze the game. Hope that it works for every body.
hd advance 3 has dvd9 support and it runs god of war perfectly.
I remember getting GoW to work by just ripping the original with DVD Decrypter and then transferring through WinHIIP. Played through with no problems.
It Depends. –
If you transfer it from your pc through winhiip or hdldumb, you have to take hdd
out of you ps2 then connect it to your pc and a setup a lan between both of them but in my way i directly installed it to my ps2 hdd and not with hd advance
3.0, i am talking with hdadvance 2.0.
hd advance 3 has its own ftp server,so no need to remove ps2 hdd.makes transfer of dvd9 games so much easier.
I just tossed the original retail DVD9 into my ToxicOS 0.41 PS2 and my HDLoader 0.7e PS2 and did a transfer - both work flawlessly.
well. i must be missing something on here, because i tried every methods that has been told on here (minus for modded ps2 since that mine is non-modded) and none of those worked at ALL.
i still can't loaded my saved games from last level that i played on my DVD one, unless its not possible with already saved memory from the DVD not HD? anyone can help me? :-/
thanks in advance
well i found a way around to it kind of. i saved the game after i went pass the last level and then went back to menu then played til i got to first checkpoint and then is aved the game then tried run the saved with game from HDD.
it worked, but when i went to unlocked teasures menu and then when i loaded it i got stuck on frozen loading screen.
i DVD Decryptered it then sent 8g of GoW thru HDLdump then open HDL 7e. what am i doing wrong?? can anyone help me out did i miss one step between or what?
thanks in advance
maybe hdl doesnt support dvd9? i see that this site is working on dvd9 support in another forum.besides hdl is older software that is just being updated by people on this site.it just now has the 10 modes that advance always had.
Hdl retail doesn't support dvd9 but hdl patched which you can find on this site works fine with dvd9.
