Rough translation: ATTENTION: This is NOT the final version. It is only a test version and find bugs etc.
The theme ps2load not finished because I realized that uses images ioprp well protected and is not it out XD. So if you test if the games run without requiring ps2load in this version in case.
I leave with you two versions one with and one without modhook, tell if something's modhook improved compatibility (or the worse) or if it does delete.

I've wondered about that myself. I've been meaning to pick up another hdd so I could try it but I realized something. How to get the partition in FAT format? Unless there's a way to do it that I don't know about, I think someone would have to code an otheros.bld with that option.
I've heard that the game-os can't access the otheros partition so it probably wouldn't work but since it's never been tried...
I've kinda wondered. If the PS3 is partitioned for OtherOS purposes, is it possible to format that piece as FAT and then use that instead of USB (for the increase of speed)? I noticed that the usb iso thingie (its early here XD) puts the equivalent of ISOs on the drive unlike the very old versions where they just wrote it oddly with partitions and such.
umm.. I don't if you can say it's using the hardware because I'm not sure if the ps3 has a physical IOP processor inside. Either way, if its not using the actual hardware, its emulating the hardware and the coding is done for that system, the ps2. It might or might not be possible for the ps3 to have usb 2.0 in ps2mode BUT noone has coded those usbdrivers yet.
Usbloader is usbadvance. Alot of the ps2 usb drivers(usbd.irx) don't work on the ps3, so although usbadvance boots up on the ps3, it doesn't recognize any usb devices. usbloader boots up usbadvance with working ps2 usbdrivers.
The ps3s that have software emulation have more disadvantages than advantages. the first version of usbloader didn't even work on the ps3s with no EE chip. you also can't boot .elfs off of the vmc.
Noone has gotten Shadow of the Colossus or God of War series to work. So unless a new version of Usbloader with improved compatibilty pops up, those games are a no-go.
Hi and welcome to the forums.
Ya, it's just an elf file using a built in usb 1.1 driver (usbd.irx). you can use an external usbd.irx but that's so you can improve compatabilty with usb devices. there are no 2.0 usb drivers and from what I have read, the chances of us getting usb 2.0 in ps2mode ae very slim. the processor that handles the usbd.irx is the IOP and that doesn't have enough power or bandwidth for usb 2.0
so unless some coder discovers a clever workaround, it's not going to happen. since the source code was released for usbloader, I think the best we could hope for would be better game compatibilty.
