    I'm trying to follow tutorials all over internet (cause i can't find one good and updated for NOOBS [i like noob tutorials, it makes sure i dont forget anything] ) on how to set up POPSLOADER (PSX emulator) on my PS2 softmodded (FMCB) i have v1.95 of fmcb...

    Also i got latest OPL, so how come i cant see ELF section or even in settings i cant see ELF settings, only HDD, Apps, ETH, USB and thats it.....

    I mean if you can point me to some active, up to date, latest tutorial with all resources on how to set up POPSLOADER on my USB i would be gratefull.

    Basicly i try to run PS2 and PSX from OPL... i already can run PSX games, but its a pain in the bu** to go through files, and its ugly..i mean i dont mind, but it would be nice to have all in one place.

    Thanks in advance.

    I found this youtube guide pretty noob friendly and straight-forward if you just follow it as shown

    If I remember correctly (it's been a long while since I used OPL) you must have a config file for ELF loading that points OPL to where the files you want to load are, it doesn't auto detect it. I sadly can't remember what the structure was however, your best bet would be searching on PSX Scene's official OPL forums, or even posting there.

    Yes but sadly, the link is not working...i have been watching his videos, they are great.


    Hm so my OPL CAN launch ELF but i need to to it manually?
    IS there some other opl loader that is customised to do that?

    That's not what i want.
    I want to launch PSX from OPL, not elf manager.

    Also, i know his tutorials, they are good, but note the date, they are old, and links have expired...

    Also, im really interested in how to launch elfs from OPL, since i already did everything else...

    Sorry but im really not following what you want exactly. It is to run your ps1 VCD's from popstarter, correct? If so the first video i linked does just that. Not sure what you meant by dead links since he directly gave the link to the ps2home forums.

    I know right. Everyone has given how to do it he really doesn't understand how it works. The elfs loader is like a forwarder for psx games. This is how it has to be done.

    I am also curious about this. I also can use ulaunchelf elf to brows to my USB stick to load PSX games, but what is the best way to play PSX games from USB stick using OPL?
