This version supports Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories USA with no compatibility modes enabled. It was basically released for this sole purpose. :)

PS2 V9 with Custom Flip Top
MC Exploit
ULaunchELF 3.78
HDLoader 0.8a with 160Gb Maxtor HDD

Nintendo GameCube DOL-001
XenoGC 2.0
POTS adjusted to 400Ohms from 496Ohms and runs everything thrown at it

If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

I wonder if it supports any other problemed games Like TMNT 3 amongst others....

I know I couldn't get Rampage to load with ver 7c but it likes 7e and 8a so I wonder if any other games are now fixed

#4
A compatibility list would be great!!! :)

So i can follow these directions, but use the new 0.8a elf instead, right?


download these:

Independance Compiler: http://console.iscentral.net/request.php?183
HD Loader Patched .ELF http://www.exploitstation.com/files/elfs/HDLFPP.rar


unzip the elf file and save it to where ever you can remember it's loaction.

open up Independance Compiler. follow the below instructions and DO NOT change any settings or click any buttons that your not directed to do or it wont work.

click the 'close this window' button near the bottom right.

click on the 'Title.db' tab

put a PS1 game into your CD drive and select that drive in the title.db windown.

click on the 'get id from cd' and it should pop up in the window above.

if it does click 'add to title.db'

if it does not come up (most of the time it should) then open that drive with your windows explorer and find the SCUS or SLUS file and single click that file, on the left side of windows explorer you should then see information about the file, and it will have the code as SCUS_xxx.xx or SLUS_xxx.xx the _ may be a - but most often not. write this id exactly as it is here into the space in Independance Compiler where it says 'Enter ID Here', then click add.

now select the 'Files' tab. and click on 'browse for file' and select the hddlfpp.elf file (where ever you put it at when you unzipped it) then click Add.

now click the 'Creat Exploit' tab,

click 'creat exploit' button at the bottom.

wait till it's done, it will say the exploit has been completed and the file is located at C:\iscentral\

open your burn software and burn that ISO file to a CD

make sure your memory card is in the first slot of the PS2 (the left port or bottom port, depending on the orentation you have your PS2 sitting)

use your swap magic to boot the CD-R disk you just burnt as if it were a PS2 game, you should see the PS2 splash screen then the screen will go black and then text pops up saying 'installing exploit' then copying file 'XXXXXXX'

leave it alone till it says 'complete'

eject the exploit disk.

if your ps1 game is an original, put it in and boot.

if your ps1 game is a backup use swap magic to boot it.

when you try to boot the ps1 game the exploit will trigger (the only disk that will trigger this is the one you used when you made the title.db above)

the screen will come up to 'press select to configuer'

press select

select the location named 'default' and press O (it's the very top selection)

you should then get a browser type screen.

scroll down to mc0:\ and press O

scroll down to BSDATA-SYSTEM\ and press O

scroll down to the hdlfpp.elf and press O you'll now pop back to the configuration screen.

scroll down to TIMEOUT and press X to take that number to 0

scroll down to OK and press 0

now your all set and configuered to exploit from the mc any time that ps1 disk is booted.

hit reset with the PS1 disk still in the console and you'll boot HD Loader directly.

enjoy.

Yeah it's normal, I'm not sure why, but that's how it works :)

can anyone help??
#16
@Lawcase

What exactly isn't working? How far do you get with the exploit?


#17
i make the CD with the title.db and the hdloader0.8a file and try to run it to install on my MC...it gets to the hdloader 0.8 file then says it failed in writing/copying the elf. I've tried 3 different elfs and they all fail....so i don't know what i'm doing wrong
#18
Not enough Space on your memory card.. When it goes to write the elf it can't because it doesn't have enough room on the MC
#19
i have 800k available...i thought the new 0.8a version only needed (something like) 200k?

got a PS3 on 11/20/06, returned it on 12/17/06

PSP: TA-082: 2.71 > 1.5 > 3.02 OEA > 3.02 OEB
#20
MDMA/UDMA-mode selector through user configurable button layout while HDLoader starts. this appears on the bottom of the HDLoader screen.......................can someone explain what it does ????
#21
Some games require a slower drive access speed to function without any problems. It selects the speed the PS2 will read from the drive according to your selection. UDMA is fast speeds, while MDMA is slow.

PS2 V9 with Custom Flip Top
MC Exploit
ULaunchELF 3.78
HDLoader 0.8a with 160Gb Maxtor HDD

Nintendo GameCube DOL-001
XenoGC 2.0
POTS adjusted to 400Ohms from 496Ohms and runs everything thrown at it

If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.
#22
How do you know when to use it? (Change Speeds)
#23
also will the new HDloader version support a standard version of Grna turismo 4 ????
#24
You know when to use it by looking at the list at ps2hd.com. In the Extra detils Icon it should tell you which game requires MDMA mode to work. But other than that, it really depends on your hard drive. IF you have a UDMA4 HD you're obviously not enabling UDMA 5 on it, since it won't work. Games like Prince of Persia: Two Thrones require MDMA mode 4.2M to be enabled to run.

@efiste2

Yes. As long as you have a flattened ISO done by DVD Decrypter, you should be able to run GT4 without a problem.

Anyone know the difference btw hdloader versions 8a and 8b?

The site I found them on didn't provide a description.
