DEMO VIDEO

 

I don't think this is the best idea to load PS2 games on PS3, but at least it seems working nice on my BC console [CECHA01]

 

To be honest, the best way to load PS2 games on PS3 would be loading it from PS3's internal HDD with webMAN, but this should be an alternative solution

 

who doesn't have enough space in PS3's internal HDD because OPL supports external USB HDD [FAT32] as well as SMB [it's similar to Nethost on COBRA CFW]

 

The latest build of OPL is 0.9.3 and it's available here https://bitbucket.org/ifcaro/open-ps2-loader/src 

 

And so far I found OPL 0.9.1 version is the best for net loading. [i tried 0.8 ,0.9.2 and 0.9.3 but 0.9.1 seems working the best on my PS3]

 

I wish I could compile this on my own but my ps2 sdk environment seems messed up and I have hard time doing it via minGW.

 

SWAPMAGIC is NOT required to run this unlike 3 years ago, because now we can use COBRA's PS2 ISO functionality and directly load OPL as ISO image.

 

This is the OPL ISO that I built

*NOTE

 

OPL does not work on non-BC console, it does run, but it doesn't load games due to its limitation coming from ps2_netemu itself, the suspect cause is disabled I/O function.

 

however, from what I heard, 3.55 w/ ps2_softemu can run this openloader just fine but so far swapmagic is needed unless you use COBRA CFW that requires DRM dongle for 3.55 or port your own 3.55 COBRA CFW which I'd likely be doing in near future for fun.

 

 

The system setup for this test run

Good stuff! To begin with, sorry for necromancing this thread.
I'd love to know how you successfully created this self booting OPL ISO, I've tried several guides and failed with black screen right after the PS2 logo, but yours.. it just works!

 

Thank you very much for any tips.
