    first question. is it possible to play backup ps1 games on a softmodded ps2 (free mcboot) without a swop disc?

    and if so, is there a way to save games without a ps1 memory card?

    I play PS1 backups on a slim PS2 with fmcb 1.8
    by using the following method and an Original PS1 CD

    If you own a Slim PS2, you can play PS1 backups using fmcb 1.8 and uLe
    if the following conditions are met

    - PS1 Original disc
    -sensors on PS2 need to be disabled, either by tools, fliptop or tape and tissue method
    -uLe by default in fmcb is R1 on the PS2 trigger

    I configure uLe already to have 'Disc Control' set to 'on'
    And I also configured 'PS2 Browser' (its under misc/ in FILEBROWSER) to a shortcut key in uLe

    1. Place your Original PS1 disc in the PS2
    2. Start up fmcb and hold R1
    3. uLe will load, disc will stop
    4. Swap Disc via fliptop or having sensors blocked
    5. Press shortcut key for 'PS2 Browser' or use FILEBROWSER to search for PS2 Browser

    Your PS2 will restart and should now play your PS1 backup


    There is no way that I know of to save without a PS1 memory card. You can buy them cheap on ebay.
