    I usually just use free mcboot with OPL or kermit (the latter more 'advanced') and a HDD.

    I use free mcboot with OPL and it's when I start the game from OPL I get white screen.

    Loading from usb is a little hit and miss. Some games arent compatible. You'll have better results burning backup to disc and using a disc loader.

    Here's a compatibility site for opl

    I typically don't recommend video tutorials, but this is a really simple process.

    I used ESR to avoid white screen, but burnt the troubling ISO to disc first.

    The usb can cause stuttering. You're really better off using the setup @kiiwii uses and burn the images to a disc and launch via esr. You'll get the best reliability that way.

    How do burn the Image to a disk and launch via esr?

    The games you're trying to launch should be in a disc image format like iso.

    Use this to patch that image to make it compatible with esr

    Then use a burning software like Nero to "restore" a disc from the image. May say restore or create disc from image, something along those lines. I recommend using dvd-r disc's and burning as slow as possible, like 4x

    You should check to see if your copy of freemcboot already has esr installed. It should. I can't seem to find it anywhere. But you would launch mcboot, put in the burnt copy of the game and just launch esr. It may need to be launched from ule.

    It's been so long since I've done any of this stuff myself. If you have anymore problems after trying the esr method, I'll dig my old ps2 out of the attic and play around with it so I can tell you exactly how mine is setup.

    Nevermind I figure the out myself, but now I have another problem, When I insert the disc with the image file and when I start opp esr, I get black screen and the game won't start opp. I'm sure I did everything right.
