    I heard that you can get an external hardrive and put the roms on the root and load the games from their. I don't believe that. So how do i play my ps2 roms on my fat ps2?

    I want it to be free. No modchips or cheatdiscs. Those are expensive.

    Gambia, The
    Get Free McBoot installed on one of your memory cards. Then everytime your ps2 is booted with that card inserted, it will allow you to run homebrew .elf files. And one of those is Open PS2 Loader. The how to and more details should be trackable in this forum as it was discussed 100 times. But ask if you run into any trouble.

    unless you, by chance, have already own the necessary materials needed to hack the ps2, it's not possible to hack it without procuring some costs.

    Also, it is indeed possible to play ps2 "roms" (actually iso files) from an external HDD, however it is not recommended, because PS2 is limited with USB 1.1 port, so slowdowns will occur.

    Of course, all of these require that you first hack your PS2 (which involves putting a program called FMCB into your memory card), which require you to have either:
    a. a cheatdisk such as AR max, codebreaker, gameshark, etc which allow for usb drive to memory card write access, OR
    b. a swap magic retail disc, OR
    c. a memor32 card, OR
    d. a retail HDL/HDA disc, OR
    e. a retail copy of 007 Agent under fire or 007 from Russia with love.


    The best way to play ps2 iso in your fat ps2 is to uses an internal IDE HDD which requires a PS2 network adapter. The program required for this is OPL or HDL.
    You can also burn the iso and run it through a program called ESR. The quality of the blank DVD is very important, as is how you burn the iso.
    You can also run it through a network or USB drive, but once again, slow downs will occur using these methods.

    OPL, HDL, and ESR is included in FMCB noobie package.

    If you're gonna use one of the disk based exploits, however, you're gonna need a way to hot swap the disk. You could either use a slide tool (idfk what those even are, just know of them), or a PS2 FlipTop mod. What that does is replaces the top half of the shell with one that opens up like a PSX, granting direct access to the disk drive.

    However, you should be able to do just fine by taking the top off of your PS2 and removing the top of the DVD drive. Just, for the love of all that is sacred, do not bump the console. The only thing that will be holding your disk in place is the disk itself...
