Not at this time, mainly because all this is... is a way to use the existing PS2 USB Extreme/USB Advance application on the PS3 (which was coded to run the games via USB drive).

Getting it to run them from the PS3's HDD would likely not only require the app's source code (which sadly isn't available) but also the ability to run stored PS2 game images from the retail PS3's HDD.

you need the swap magic discs everytime you want to load a game.

just remane usbld02b.elf to smboot1.elf put it in the usb pen, in a folder called SWAPMAGIC, then load swap magic, and when it loads, press UP+L2

then usbld will load

the iso must be prepared with USBUTIL

i've heard swap magic is very picky about the usb devices, i still didn't find one that works, but one of them already showed the games listed, so i think i explained you well

cheers and sorry for my english too, i'm portuguese

Can i put the games on my PS3's HD and load them from there ?

Should i do the SM trick with every game i want to load/play ? Or once you have copied to the HD there is no more swap trick ?
I don't have a SM yet,but before i buy one,i want to know i don't need to do to the swap every time i want to play a game.
I now have HD Loader on my PS2 and that works great.

So if the same could happen again on my PS3 (whitout loading swap discs every time) that would be great !

Sorry for my english but i'm from Belgium.

Do you think these grafical failures are "produced" from USBLD 0.2B or from the PS3? So could it be patched? Also is there any chance to get USB 2.0 support within USBLD 0.2B? Are you in direct contact with our friends at DemonHades?

cheers

I don't see how a usbdriver could produce grafical glitches in gameplay, so I would bet on the cause being the ps3.

I did have problems with usbloader 0.2b recognising my usb hdd. So I have to usbloader 0.2 with a usbd.irx on the memcard for that. I keep both the 0.2 and 0.2b elfs on my usb devices now. you should give it a try to see if 0.2b is the problem.

I'm not sure about usb 2.0.
I'm a member at the DemonHades forum but not in direct contact with any of the devs. I have asked around about if it could even been possible.

heh, we've never had ps2's with usb 2.0 hardware before

for example: Gran Turismo 4 and Final Fantasy VII

indeed, maximo US and ico PAL would not boot on 0.2b (without memory card install) but does with 0.1 and 0.2 (with memory card install)
