    Hi,

    ill try to make it short as possible. I want to pirated games, I missed this generation while playing on PC and dont want to spend shitton of money on used games(it doesnt differ that much from pirating anyway, creator isnt getting money eitherway). So Im buying PS2 Slim that has FreeMcBoot already installed. Problem is I have no idea what Im supposed to do to actually play games. Can you link me some noob friendly guide how to play pirated games? Cause my guess is that even with FreeMcBoot on board its not gonna be so easy like I wish it was. I have a lot of usbs obviously, if usb cable is needed ill find one/get one. Thanks in advance.

    Also simple question, can I play PS1 games on PS2?

    yes you can play ps1 games. playing backups of ps1 games is more difficult than playing ps2 backups but not particularly difficult either. get a fat ps2 so you can install a hard drive. and I'm pretty sure free mcboot is entirely on the memory card so swapping from ps2 to ps2 should be simple.

    I believe you may be able to use a hard drive with the slim but again more difficult as it doesn't have the bay and io port already. You have to use usb which I believe is only usb 1.1 or w/e so it's slower than reading a burnt disc. Don't quote me on that. Burning games should be pretty simple as well. I suggest checking out dash hacks and read everything twice.

    You have 3 options basically, Patch the iso with ESR patcher and burn the game and pop it in and load it with ESR, load them up from the computer with OPL or load them up with Usbloader(the usb will have to have it's own power source because apparently the ps2 slim doesnt provide any power from usb slots)

    Can U link me some guide for that? Step by step, I know it may seem easy for You but I never pirated anything besides some games in early 2000s and those were on pc so i dont know how to deal with more complex process.

    Thanks in advance

    To be honest, the best option for you would be to just burn the games, because Usb loading tends to be painfully slow and makes it pretty unplayable and the same goes for the PC method
    ESR Method
    1.Get your iso(i cant provide links to this so google it or make a backup of your original games)
    2.Patch it with ESRDiscPatcher(drag the iso to the app)
    3.Burn it at a 4X speed(it will be best to burn it with a good DVD-R like Verbatim, but you dont really need to,any DVD-R should work fine)
    4.Put it in your PS2, it should automatically detect it and automatically load ESR if not, manually boot ESR(this is considering if ESR is in the Memory card already)
    5. Hit Load Dvd and have fun
