Hi guys,

I got Star Ocean Till The End Of Time working here. The compatability list says it should work but i still cant seem to get the other games I mentioned before which also say they work. Has anyone else had any luck with these games?

Cheers

i've been checking this for a few days, but i can't seem to find a proper usb pen drive that works. only one of them manages to run USBLD, but USBLD says it can't find any USB device, while the usb pen is plugged and it's light is flashing all the time.

but if i unplug the usb pen, and plug it again, after 1 or 2 seconds it shows the games stored in the usb pen, but disappears after another second. i manage to press the start button and it shows the spanish loading messages but then i get a black screen.

i'm trying to load Big Mutha Truckers (US) & Metal Slug 5 (US) on a PAL launch system (60gb version with software emulation), these 2 games are CD games, so i'm using the swap magic 3.6+ cd version, i don't have the dvd version at the moment, and even if i did, the usb pen is only 2gb, i can't store a dvd game

my usb pens are:
Dane-elec 2gb
Datawrite 2gb (the only one that manages to run usbld)
Cnmemory 8gb

i already ordered a sony 8gb usb pen.

is there any compatibility list for working and non-working usb devices?

thanks in advance

Is MEMSTICKIND the name that shows up on USBLD screen? and is MEMSTICKIND suppose to be what you named .hack? after pressing x on MEMSTICKIND does a bunch of spanish command lines show up then a black screen? if yes to all, then welcome to the club.

my guess is, like a lot of games , .hack doesn't work for one reason or another. just try another game, preferably one that is known to work from a compatibility list. This way you know your setup method is sound and some other thing is the problem like game X on works when installed with util Y or only working under loader Z, etc.

for instance, maximo and ico are listed as working but i can't get them to work, however Rez and Mr mosquito work for me. So at least i know it's likely not the setup method but some incompatibility.

PS: anyway, you can use pcsx2 or it's playground alternate to check that the iso you created works.

good luck.

I do not have anything copied to the virtual memory card.

fw 2.60
launch US 60gig PS3
SM 3.6+
crappy 2gig flash drive

now if anyone could tell me how and which version they used to get ICO working, please?


I did what you said. I deleted the old files off the vmc (BADATA-SYSTEM, SWAPMAGIC, etc). I then made a folder on my PSP's memory stick and called it SWAPMAGIC, and stuck the USB_2b.elf file in there and renamed it SMBOOT0.elf. I then put the ul files (including ul.cfg) on the root of the memory stick. I loaded up USB Loader, and the only thing showing was MEMSTICKIND. I hit X, and it froze again.

Thanks a lot for your help thus far -- I really appreciate it. Any idea how to get over this hurdle? Once again, I'm using .hack//Infection on my 60GB NTSC Ps3. I used USButil 1.02 after turning the game into an ISO. This is where I am at right now.

Have given both games 10 minutes to load just in case it was really slow but no luck :P

The compatibility isn't really that great, i think it has been reported to have the same compatibility as usbadvance for ps2..

there is a list to download in the first post.. which will tell you some games that have already been tested.

God, I'm still having problems. Okay, according to the first post, I made a folder on my pendrive (my PSP, to be exact), and called it SWAPMAGIC. I put the USBLD_02b zip files in there along with the usbadvanceps3filesetup zip and extracted it there as well (I cut the files from the folder and put it in SWAPMAGIC).

I started up SwapMagic 3.6+. I went into the Launch.elf since it was set that way before. I copied the folder BADATA-SYSTEM and SWAPMAGIC to the base folder. For some reason, USBLD_02b.elf wouldn't copy over to m0, so I just ran it from my PSP. I get to the screen, and MEMSTICKIND appears. On the right, it says there's 1 game, and I have used up 2.41gb of space, with 1.36gb free. I tried to hit X on the MEMSTICKIND, but it froze at that screen. The screen flashes every so often, but nothing happens.

Would anyone tell me where I went wrong? The game files are on the root of the PSP memory stick, and I have .hack//Infection on it (confirmed to work before). I own a launch PS3 60GB system, the one with the hardware to play PS1 and PS2 games. Thanks a lot for anyone who can provide help!
