    Hey. Just a quick question. How do you boot up PS2 games from a usb flash drive? I have a Fat ps2 softmodded with FreeMcboot saved on the memory card, A 1gb Usb drive, a 2gb Usb drive, and a 4gb usb drive. I have Argon media player working on the ps2 so im not that bad at this stuff. but the main reason i did this was for the games, because right now i dont have a ps3. Do You have to have a usb hardrive? would a flash drive work?

    Not all flash drives will work and your speed at loading times will be slightly slower but some work
    you need a program called open ps2 loader there are others but this one is the best
    and you will also need a program called usb util
    here is the link fro open ps2 loader : http://sksapps.com/opl/downloads/OpenPS2Loader_0.7.zip
    here is yhe link for USB_utill :http://sksapps.com/hd/USBUtil_v200_full_en.rar
    know put open ps2 loader aside we will use that latter

    now open the .exe file in the package and then click file and now you have to chises if you want to make a backup from the drive you chose "Create [GAME/ISO]from CD/DVD"
    if you want to use an iso you backed up yourself(i do not support piracy)chose "Create game from ISO the rest is pretty easy you put the flash drive in the computer and under the one where it says to you chose the flash drive and then you chose the iso and name the game it may take a while

    now you have the game in the flash drive put the flash drive in the ps2 open ps2 loader trough freemcboot and it's pretty straight forward chose usb from the OPSloader menu and you will see your game

    Thanks man. Another thing, though im not sure this goes here, In ps2, freemcboot installed, i have some videos i want to play with sms player. Now, animations work fine, but i have some higher resolution videos, like 720x1280, avi format, but it recognises it as a music file, not a video file, and only plays the sound. Any ideas?, by the way, these arent cartoons/ animation.

    i don't understand that much about sms but even if it recognized it wouldn't play because the ps2 cant handle such resolutions
    the max it can handle is 720x576 rescale them and see if they work

    Thanks, Yeah I changed the resolution to "TV Quality" in Free Make Video converter, and It works great, though could PS3 play higher res videos off a usb?

    well i would wait until someone cracks up dual boot so people can have both CFW and OFW a lot of people are trying on dual boot so in a few moths it will be probably viable so i would wait until then

    Hey you still here? Your method worked great for loading from usb, though i use both openps2loader, and usb advance. But back to the point. I was playing god of war, off of usb, and after the second check point, a cutscene came up with nude women, and at that time my mom walked in. And the world knows nudity and sex doesnt run good with the parents, so if theres a list or anything listing these type of scenes, I'd be truly greatfull. even though Im 16 turning 17 she still doesnt approve.

    hey i need your help once again. Like i said before, the god of war iso was working, but now it sticks in the cutscene right after you save the oracle, on a picture of his wife and kid. I tried 2 iso's and the same thing. any ideas? how do you rebuild a game? and what is that for?
