To quote: Getting PlayStation 2 Software Emulator working

Method (on Firmware 3.55, without! Cobra-USB Dongle or Downgrade) for all consoles (fat & slim).

1. Replace following files on your consoles /dev_flash/ with the ones included in this archive p3dwik-ps2compatfiles.rar
2. Get into Factory Service Mode (FSM Tool/Dongle)
3. Insert your Original PS2 Game Disc
4. It will run.

Note: Backups won't work. You're getting the compatibility of the 2.60 software emulator with all of its bugs.

A possible compatibility lists:

PS2 Compat. flag

All consoles have hardware information. In GameOS you can call Lv2 Syscall 393 (0x189) sys_sm_get_model to get your consoles information. In Lv1/Hypervisor its in the repository nodes sc 0x5B lv1_get_repository_node with Parameters "sys","hw","config" usually noded as "sys.hw.config#0" or something.

Hi I just make a debug app that use some syscalls to do a reset into PS2 Lpar like boot_ps2 does, it should work on dex 4.11 or 4.20 but in these fw there is ps2 netemu instead of softemu so i need someone with an original disc of playstation 2 inserted on bd-drive and launch this test app and see what happens.

I am on 4.11 DEX but i don't have any original disc from PS2... This is basically the same thing that boot_ps2 does on 3.55 but there is a new emu file on dex 4.11 or 4.20 introduced on 3.70 with the use of PS2 Classics on PSN... This is not brick-risk, thanks to anyone who help me with this. Greetings...





1st - Download the file
2nd - Copy the file PS2 Evo v1.0.pkg to the root of a USB drive formated in FAT32
3rd - Install the .pkg from *Install Package Files*
4th - Insert a original PS2 disk on the BD
5th - Run the app and enjoy

The way I see it, even if he did "sell out", at least this version of multiman works without the dongle so you can use it on kmeaw. To me that sounds more like the case of "this is the free version but with the pro you get these features", which, I'm perfectly fine with.

Open Office is only one of many open source projects. It in itself is the combination of many other open source projects. There's literally millions of open source projects out there.

I don't fault deank if he decided to profit off Multiman. As far as I know, he contributed the vast majority of work to the project. If he solicited the help of others under the guise of open source and then turned around and sold it for a profit, then I'd have a different opinion, but as far as I know that is not the case. Would I prefer he continued with a free open source development? Of course.

Also, it's worth nothing that deank has denied allegations that he's working with Cobra. His past actions have given me no reason to believe he's anything but trustworthy. I agree the sudden stop of development appears suspicious, but there's many possible scenarios.

Maybe it's all coincidence and other factors in his personal life have stopped development. Unless you know deank personally, I don't think anyone has a right to doubt his claims. I can imagine many scenarios that he might not want to share with everyone (eg. cancer, dead relative, unemployed, etc) and it'd be terrible if people were giving him a bad name over purely circumstantial evidence.

I'm grateful for his past contribution as I know I'm entitled to nothing.

I have said that they both dongles are doing the same. But for me guys like grafchokolo have done much more then those both teams. All the files used on this both sticks are frm dev_flash and just patched/ported and not rewritten or anything else.

But anyway it seems you haven't understood. tHeUnknOwEnSeCRet will do this all for acid cfw and even don't want fame. He only do this for helping peoples and he do this for acid cause we share the same ideology about those things.

You seem fairly sure the way you say "HE IS", Any actual real proof of Dean's involvment or is it just Team Ac1ds personal opinion?

BTW: love the GUI's in multiman, really smooth. its really come on in the last year. Anyone seen the way the glitter in screensaver moves with the Sixaxis angle? its neat!

I think DUPLEX are the answer to all these problems, just wait for the DUPLEX release, that's what I do and I don't mind waiting a little longer for the latest games.

Actually it doesn't say that it requires the dongle at all for anything. It says it will work without the dongle. So I guess I'll be the only one that will test it.

The thing that makes less sense is how would it work if without the dongle the system thinks its on ofw?? So how would a homebrew app like MM work? lol

yes! But Cobra features are not enabled if you don't have the dongle.

also i don't know if we need to install BDEMU2 or is cmMM useing it by default or what.

I'm sorry does this mean even those w/o a cobra dongle say on rebug or kmeaw cfw can install this w/o any complications?

Thanks DeanK, even if u lied before about you not working for them, but the fact could be that you working for them all this time, you should not lie to us, just say yes i'm working for them and its cool.

I'm sure you have had something to do with this been able to use other CFW users not only Cobra users and for that thanks!

Thanks again for all this Deank.

I think that's in reference to the lack of built-in dongle functionality. (PSP, etc still requires dongle, afaik)
