    I've been playing around with installing games to my fat PS2's hard drive, and was curious about one thing: is there a build of miniOPL out there that can read game config files from the +OPL partition, and therefore use VMC files? I'm aiming for an experience that's close to stock: pick games from the hard disc browser, and have all of the games save to VMCs on the hard drive. I don't mind doing some extra setup with the full version of OPL to get config files made and VMC files created.

    I'd like to avoid having to spin up a Linux VM to install the PS2 toolchain to compile OPL and experiment.. :P

    Nope. VMC support, configs files etc... is totally removed from diskload/miniopl.

    Thank you for the reply. Guess it's time to compile OPL myself and experiment. :P

    I'm not even sure diskload is derivated from OPL itself...

    I grabbed the source from SP193's site and it looks like it is, so that's a good sign. :)
