    PS1/2 How can i undo FreeDvdBoot ESR patch on .iso?

    Using an ESR patcher permanently changes data at (I believe) 2-3 different locations on the disc - one of which is to change the disc type information to make it report as a DVD Video instead of software on a DVD disc. It is even more drastic of a change if the original disc was a CD not a DVD...

    How to use OPL via UDPBD ?

    I didn't say NBD WAS UDPBD, I said it was the current realization of the idea behind UDPBD. If you really want to go down the rabbit hole of outdated/unsupported stuff - here you go: Read comments here: https://github.com/ps2homebrew/Open-PS2-Loader/issues/325 Only OPL branch that supported...

    GCN Tell me your opinion...

    Agreed - and YES, you can burn swiss to a disc, which is the only way I am aware of to access it with a XenoGC chip (I used to have one before md Disc Drive died - which motivated my choice to move to GC Loader with Swiss on the MemCard->SD adapter.

    GCN Tell me your opinion...

    NICE! I used to have a viper case on my original GC back in the day. Personally, I have color cycling LEDs on the controller ports and the power LED, SD2SP2, GCLoader w/ LaserBear SD mount & the GCHD MK-II (if that counts as a mod?). Also The GB Player can be had for cheap if you don't need the...

    Oldest game you enjoy?

    Kaboom does work in all the emulators fine in general. I am just so in sync with playing this game over the years that joystick, mouse or trackball input is just "too wrong" for me to fall in to a rhythm. Standalone Stella will work with arcade spinners which is the closest feel to playing on an...

    Oldest game you enjoy?

    I am indeed. I have cleaned them a number of times over the years. I also own 3 pairs of them so once a pair starts to act up I set it aside until it gets properly maintenanced and just move on to another pair. I actually just played two evenings ago with my wife and kids again. Love this game...

    Oldest game you enjoy?

    Kaboom! - Atari 2600 - Released 1981 Still play this game regularly with my kids on my original Atari 7800 (have my original Atari VCS as well in storage) Have never found a decent way to emulate this game with proper controls... Arcade spinners don't feel right and trackballs are too...

    Freemcboot Memory Card problem (MC4SIO)

    from my understanding MX4SIO is the official standard (which supports game saving to the same card in recent OPL versions. MC4SIO, MC2SIO, and so on are all cheap clones and can potentially not fully support the full feature set of MX4SIO (tho I think that's not likely the case). My best guess...

    How to use OPL via UDPBD ?

    If I understand correctly, the current form of what was called UDPBD (UDP Block Device) has been realized in OPL as the more standard NBD (Network Block Device) which is a linux compatible network protocol. As for how to use it, you would want to go here...

    [Beta Release] Open PS2 Loader with ZSO support (compressed ISOs)

    Nice. My setup is almost identical. I just used a GL.iNet Mango mini router instead so I didn't need custom FW on it and it was only ~$22 US.

    [Beta Release] Open PS2 Loader with ZSO support (compressed ISOs)

    Personally I'm using a PS2 Slim dedicated micro router to access a 2.5" USB HDD (like a PS2-NetBox setup). If I can find a spare USB HDD to test with is it helpful to try this on my setup and report back or are you specifically looking for directly connected USB test results since SMB already...

    Hacking PS1/2 How to hack a PS2 slim in 2022?

    No. Both burned and original CDs and DVDs are slower than SMB. Maximum throughput speeds for PS2: HDD ATA interface: ATA-66 (Roughly 66MB/s) (not available on slim without specific models and an ATA Drive mod or ATA->SD Card mod) Ethernet interface: 100Mbit (Or 12.5MB/s) MC2SIO adapter...

    thea500 - whdload - lha

    Good point... I waited on TheC64 for the exact same reason. I have a separate Pi400 setup with Combian64. I waited for TheC64 Maxi and bought that - mainly for the sudo-realism and the graphic symbols on the keys. Still curious how the A500 mini and PiMiga compare tho...

    thea500 - whdload - lha

    How are you liking the mini? are you able to compare it to a PiMiga by chance? I'm already running that on a Pi400 but was still interested in the A500 mini... I'm on the fence - push me either way please (if you can) :)
