PS2ESDL / PlayStation 2 External Storage Device Games Loader


Sponsored Links
224w ago - While we don't normally see a lot of PS2 homebrew news, today TnA reports that SP193 released his program PS2ESDL / PlayStation 2 External Storage Device Games Loader for PS2 consoles.

Download: PS2ESDL v0.800 OpenBeta

From the ReadMe file, to quote:

How to launch/use PS2ESDL:

- Install your games onto a USB disk (Prefably a hard disk) that was formatted with the FAT32 filesystem.
- Defragment your disk after you install your games. PS2ESDL assumes that your game files are contiguous. Therefore FILE FRAGMENTATION IS UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!
- Launch PS2ESDL in your favourite way.
- Plug in your USB disk that has your games on it.
- Start your game by pressing either the CIRCLE, CROSS or START buttons. Hold the necessry buttons/triggers to invoke the necessary cache size settings and compatibility modes as you do so.

About the patches.ppi file that comes with PS2ESDL: Put it in the same directory where you're launching the main PS2ESDL executable from (It's necessry for compatibility with Armored Core Nine Breaker)!

Additional Notes:

- PS2ESDL supports it's own game format, the new PS2ESDL version 1.10 format (Not v1.00!!).
- It also supports the traditional USBExtreme format.
- Your USB disk must be FAT32 formatted, defragmented and have NO bad sectors (Your image file(s) may be "fragmented" then!).
- There is no USB support in games (You will probably be able to run games that use USB devices, but the game won't be able to access them).

Good question, perhaps if someone who still has a PS2 gives it a try and reports back we will find out.

what's the main difference between OPL 0.7 and this? better speed? better compatibility ? or just better waste of time ?

No need to invent light bulb again...!!!
