Freemcboot

Postby wshirk » Thu Apr 20, 2017 9:13 pm

I was wondering if someone had the means of installing freemcboot In a memory card for me. I have a ps2 slim 79001, and was wondering if there was someone who could install freemcboot on a memory card and send it to me free of charge, I am into restoring consoles and preserving systems for as long as I am able and wish to show others how to do the same. If anyone can help I'd appreciate it very much. Just want the freemcboot nothing extra I can do all the rest. Thank you and have a great day

I can do it for you, but you'll have to pay for shipping not only to me, but back to you. Easy to do. Buy a two pack of bubble mailers, stamps, and an official sony PS2 memory card. If you want it quicker, you can always pay the money to 2-day priority ship it, but that's gonna run 12 bucks or more just to ship it to and from me.

There's a couple other users here, if CurbsidePharmicist is still doing it. And I believe there was another US user that did it as well.

Your call, but Curb will require the same things that I do.

Thanks for the endorsement, ZX, means a good bit to me for one of the mods to call me trusted in any kind of deal!

I can say that I've never had a complaint with any of the cards that I've done, or with any of the trades that I've made. I don't have a larger list of trades due to the fact that I rarely buy more than one copy of a game or anything. Though I do now own three PS1s, one being a PSOne that I need to replace some capacitors on.

Your best to use a true Magi Gate SONY Memory card 8 meg, for FMCB.
You can install it to bigger cards but risk the chance of data corruption on later save games as the exploit "Breaks" the file system. Avoid using MADCATS 3rd party MC's - Complete junk
I have a 64meg memory card in SLOT 1 and a Sony 8meg in SLOT2 with FMCB Installed.
90% Of PS2 games require only SLOT 1 to be used when saving games, so makes sense to use SLOT 2 to boot FMCB :) Also works Via Multi-Tap in slot "A"

EDIT

Note that NOT ALL GAMES will be compatible with 33/64meg MC's and eather
a, Refuse to Load whilst card is plugged in. Or
b, Take an age to access the card (Vice City)

I keep a spare 8meg card for these "Problem" Games

Ya , 8meg official 'magicgate' ones are ideal

Anything else are hit-or-miss er may just corrupt if attempted

Yup , true too , can run the memory card exploit softmod from either slot . Plug and play

Useful Info for FMCB configs

MC0: = SLOT 1
MC1: = SLOT 2
MC?: = READ BOTH SLOTS FOR FILES (SQUARE = Wildcard = MC?: in uLaunch/FMCB Configorator)
