    I recently installed a system called "Qcast" on my PC/PS2. It allows the PS2 to play media files off of the PC through the network adapter (via LAN).

    My question: Could it be possible for a PS2 to load full games from images stored on a LAN connected PC?

    I dunno, but that'd be sweet. I've never even heard of something like that until you mentioned it. Let us know if you get it to work.

    I don;t know how to do that stuff. I just hope that someone who does reads this stuff.

    why dont you try it the same way that you access the media files

    copy all of the game files to a place and then access them the way that you do the other meida

    dont know if it wil work but it is worth a try

    I think the trick lies in getting the PS2 to load game data from the network, rather than the cd-rom drive.

    Also, the program only displays recognized files.

    Just reading up on the software(which I now really want) I don't think that either end of the media sharing would allow it. The ps2 is sort of decoding and displaying the media like its a web file thing, and qcast has only so many supported formats. The only thing even remotely related to this is playing genisis or nes roms with a special program burnt to a cd, sadly it seems that playing a backup over a network just will not work. Yet.....
