PS2ESDL / PlayStation 2 External Storage Device Games Loader

Sponsored Links
210w 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).

Sounds pretty good but i can maybe see one thing that might slow down the gameplay, the ps2's usb port is version 1.1 i believe and the transfer rate for a lot of the games i tried back then were just lagging in the game play, now if they ever came with a addon to make it usb 2.0 then we would be in business as gameplay should be normal then.

Since i have to double post which will be merged as 3 mins editing time is not enough i believe, but i am going to give this a whirl as i have the whole ps2 thing still setup to test this.

OPL 0.7 is signifcantly more advanced and OPL 0.8 is being worked on every day.

SMB share in OPL blows this out of the water.
