Open PS2 Loader (OPL – HD/USB Loader) – Draft
Introduction – What is OPL?
Open PS2 Loader (OPL) allows you to load PS2 images from a storage device:
- USB device via internal port
- Harddisk via expansion slot
- Samba share via network interface of the expansion pack
To run Open PS2 Loader you need the following items:
- Fat Playstation 2
- Network Adapter
- Harddisk HDD or SSD, depending on your adapter
- Free McBoot (to add further link)
- Software to add
- PS2 Game files (Isos)
A fat Playstation 2 is required to work with Free McBoot, it also supports the expansion where you can install your harddisk, which I recommend. Although haven’t tried the network method via Samba yet, as I got a kiosk display stand to play my PS2 with no network connection close to it.
The original PS2 expansion bay supports normal HDD, but you can also get no-name expansion bay’s support SSD (but no network support).
