Hi guys,

Although I already made a search about this topic, I usually trust mostly gbatemp... anyway

The context:

My ps2 is scph-90001 and it's modded (Matrix) and I want to play games through USB, is it possible? is it feasible (aka run properly)? If yes, do you have any link / text / indication about the process?

Thanks

There is a USB loader that lets you load games through a USB hard drive. Though its not very really relilable, games will take longer to load than their Disk counterpart. Its better to get a fat ps2 and use OPL with a IDE hard drive.

how about SMB?
IIRC we could use the lan for load games
I haven't actually used that yet. I am intending to set up my Raspberry Pi to stream my games to my PS2 with it, but I haven't gotten around to buying a bigger/faster SD card to do so.

Either will do.

The one with both an ethernet port and dial-up modem is the NA adapter, the one with just an ethernet port is rest of the world. For some strange reason Sony added a dial-up modem to the NA release because of course you want to play online using 56k :rofl2:

Considering at the time most people were still on dialup, yeah, it was that or nothing. Same reason Dreamcast had a dialup modem included, not a BBA. It was actually quite a surprise for MS to make the Xbox ethernet only when it came out.

I'd take nothing over the rediculous latency dial-up gave. MS were correct, sometimes people need to be told what's good for them, rather than ruin it for others. Luckily Sony EU didn't follow.

    Wish they would let us play the NCAA football 14 on newer xbox, its one of the only games I love and own on disc still, that is not back compatible, bs.

    @BigOnYa My dad recently bought a spare Series X off of me, got game pass, and saw Madden '24 on Game Pass, decided to try it out.

    ...He was a bit taken aback by the 60GB download size. Poor guy's still living in the 90s!

    @K3Nv2 He was looking into consoles for his house anyway (for my younger siblings and himself) and I had a spare XSX and Switch I ended up selling him at pretty steep cuts. I would just give them to him, but I did buy them with the intent to sell them... and college is super expensive.
