    Basically now that FreeDVDBoot was made it was made possible to Play burned games on unmodded ps2 and i wanted to do it.

    The problem is that to use it like that you need to connect it with some other tools and it would be complicated to use it manually, anyway there exists a tool for that https://www.ps2-home.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9778

    It was made by some guy named jabu, the problem is that it only includes payload for the slim variant, probably since the one for fat was made later, and it is said that you can include your own payload, so i visited the official FreeDVDBoot github thingy and downloaded these:
    https://github.com/CTurt/FreeDVDBoot/tree/master/Filesystems/2.10-2.13/VIDEO_TS
    And added them to a new folder, then i turned the program and it allowed me to chose this payload and use it to patch my image, then i choose to Burn it and after inserting it into my PS2 it shows as dvd video, so it patched SOMETHING, but after playing it, it just boots movie dvd menu and says that it can't read it.

    Here are important notes: i checked and the game works on emulator before and after patcher, i checked and it says that it was already patched when i try it again so it did SOMETHING, it uses esr which is apparently not compatible with every game but mine should be working it's even pal version too https://www.ps2-home.com/forum/page/esr-game-compatibility-list-l my game is lumines plus, also i realized that there's boot.elf in the FreeDVDBoot in upper folder and it belongs to mine version too but other versions don't have it and i don't know what to do with it there's some .elf in upper folder of patcher but the diffrence beetween sizes is pretty big and i don't think it that it's actually related to that then do i put toghether with two other files?

    My theory is that it patches it with esr but doesn't do anything regarding FreeDVDBoot files, not exacly sure if i can do it myself, if not it would be usefull to know where i can contact the author, about it.

    And please i don't want to waste discs ;-;

    Also before anyone says it I AM NOT GOING TO INSTALL FREEMCBOOT, I WANT TO DO IT STRAITH FROM DISC LIKE THAT.

    I would really appreciate an answer!
