Hi, just wondering if you have a ps3 with full ps2 capabilty or a ps3 without the EE chip?
I have a PAL ps3 and I have noticed grafical glitches in games even without usbloader. For example Matrix,Path of Neo. That's because my ps3 has BC through emulation and even though Sony lists the game as compatible there are still some minor glitches sometimes.

The ps3s without the EE chip have a ps2 BC compatibilty check. Some original games won't even boot because they are full of problems and don't pass that BC check. Launching with usbloader bypasses that check. I've played around with some games that don't pass the BC check, mainly from the demo discs from OPSM, and ya, there are some serious problems with those games.

Ok, back on topic.
I've also tried booting the OPSM demo discs with usbloader and so far all the discs I've tried booted. makes it pretty handy for testing games because of all the demos on the discs. I was also able to boot the homebrew Beats of Rage game in iso form using usbloader.

Has anyone tried booting a game that allows installing to the internal HDD, like FFXI?

@dynamic. it works with the 80gb NTSC ps3s that are ps2 compatible. if your 80gb isn't ps2 compatible, then it doesn't work.

great tutorial. Too bad I don't have a SwapMagic disc.

Well, it's not that bad because I still have my PS2 with HDLoader...
