I'm going to test that now.Running the emu with 256mb of ram is rather difficult. So running a swap partition wouldnt be hard through linux once we get the full access you guys have a dedicated dev here for ps2 support. It's all a work in progress with my openSUSE build i'm putting together for it.
yeah a swap partition doesn't really work like that, a swap partition is more like the linux version of the paging file. Before with otherOS when the hv was locking out the GPU we used the VRAM as swap space (giving 256MB RAM and 256MB fast swap space) which worked quite well but 256MB of RAM isn't the sort of hinderance everyone thinks.
Well it seems that no one has been succesful in doing it. Some guy asked a few pages back that why we had to downgrade
If you try to play a PS2 Game CD\DVD It will display a message saying that there is no compatibility for that title and that you must update some more. Also i think this is only possible on consoles that can downgrade as far back as 2.50
If the boss could edit the guide just write this: Note: This can only be done on a PS3 System bought 11/20/2008 80 GB PS3 12/31/2008 160 GB Uncharted Bundle (With Pain Voucher)
Well it seems that no one has been succesful in doing it.
Naaah, couldn't test earlier. It indeed works also on CECHK04 with FW2.50 and FW2.60 in service mode, FW2.70 complains about 'non bc-compatible titles'
Knight Rider (CD-ROM/PAL) works laggy, about 60% original speed.
Oni (CD-ROM/PAL) works maybe a bit laggy
ProRally 2002 (CD-ROM/PAL) works OK, some [accept/cancel] icons for name and country selection seem to be off-screen
CD-ROM games (blue CD icon) seem to work, DVD-ROM games (golden CD icon) crash after loading and some seeking, hard-off is needed to reboot.
CD-ROM games exit fine to XMB after pressing PS for >3s.
Tests were done on composite video out.
Obviously $ony planned full-SW emulation to get rid of EE but skipped it between 2.60 and 2.70
