Hi! Im considering buying hdloader. But why bother if you can do without? So thats why im asking if its possible to cope with the following setup: ps2 v5 pal network adapter pal 120gb samsung hard drive computer with winhiip & some ftp software a ps1 original game is it even possible to access mc via ftp from your computer? could i load the needed files to mc without having to burn a cd and using a swap disc etc.? and then coudt i access hdloader menu with a original ps1 game if i had made the needed changes in config file (the games title) and then use the same game to boot. can you find any sense on my questions? the point for this thread is that i just dont want to spend extra 35e to original hd loader. oh, one more question. if i was to bui the hdloader after all could i just leave the boot disc in my ps2 and every time i wanted to play some game id just turn on the ps2? so that there would be absolutely no swapping? thanks a lot mates!
