Hi, thank you for writing up this tool @rs1n!

I added my own feature to the batch script, and I wanted to share it with you. It's an option to delete the source files on transfer completion.

So far, it's been working for me without issues. Not sure who else would like this feature, but if you want to include it in your main release feel free to do so.

That is usually an indication that you did not properly format the drive. Do so using uLaunchELF on the PS2 itself. Moreover, if you used Winhiip to format your drive, that is also part of the problem. Winhiip is old, buggy, outdated, and as you have found out quite limited (and also does not play nicely with more modernized apps).

First of all thank you for making this excellent tool. I used it to install many games onto my 2TB HDD without issue. I now want to add around 50 or so more games. Can I still use this? Will it recognize the existing games and just install the new ones?
Just put the new games inside a new folder. Then drop the HDLBATCH files into this new folder as well, and run it like a new installation. It will just add to the existing installation, and skip over any game that has already been installed.

I need some help, if you please.

My setup:
ps2 fat 3xxx
internal 2,5'' sata 3 1tb hdd
official sony network adapter with sata mod
external usb sata hdd case, to put the hd on my pc.

goals:
-Put 800gb of games (some isos, some duallayer, some cd based, some bin/cue, some isos), use opl 1.1, be happy.

steps:
-Burned ulaunch (wLaunchELF Releases by SP193 and AKuHAK) ps2-home forums
wLaunchELF_v4.43a (rev288)-2020-03-19 (commit-f35bddd).zip

-launched ulaunch.elf on ps2, formated my hdd just fine, created +OPL partition (4gb). Ok

Errors:

-Freehdboot won't install, my workaround was to install freeMCboot. Ok, but I couldn't understand why. Error is shown "failed to install". On MC, the install went ok, and it's fine for me.

This one:




-When, i do get things right, My gamefiles have no name patterns, do i need to rename them before I Use your batch install utility?


UPDATE:
-When i format harddrive, several partitions are made, but when i put my hardrdrive on pc, then i put it back on ps2, only 2 were shown under ulaunch's hdd manager: _mbr and _net. Normal?
The installer that you have pictured is not the one I wrote, so I cannot help with that. Your issue with installing FreeHDBoot is that you need to do so using the FreeMCBoot installer program from a USB drive. As for formatting, I would first make an FMCB card, then format the drive using the uLaunchELF program on the FMCB card. Lastly, use the FMCB card to run the installer and install onto the HDD.

I can confirm that using the uLaunchELF program on the 1.966 revision of FMCB produces no issues using HDLBATCH (which isn't what you are using in the photo). So the error you are getting may be due to this other similarly named program using a different revision of hdldump that is not compatible with the formatting.

Thanks for the modifications. I am a bit hesitant in including this in an official release because users could very well be installing from their digital archive/backup and such an option inadvertently used could cause irreparable harm.

Figured it out, it only reads iso files so you need to turn your bin/cues into iso. I used OPL Manager and it was easy enough

so I finally was able to get everything to work but it looks like nothing copied?

OPL does not load, just rotates dot endlessly.
the manager does see the HDD and under +OPL its empty.
I look in all the other folder and see nothing.

I ran HDLBATCH with TEST=no, every file worked and said it copied. All my other drives on the PC are intact, so it had to do it, but where would the files be?

if I do a toc on my drive its all there?

Late response, but for anyone else running into this issue, every cue file needs a corresponding bin file. The cue file is a simple text file which should contain a reference to the bin file along with other CD info. Chances are, your bin files are not named the same as noted in the cue file.

Enable the HDD in the settings for OPL (I set it to auto), and then have OPL refresh the games list.
