Free McBoot memory card not working on a different PS2

Postby zxcvbnm » Mon Jun 19, 2017 3:23 pm

I have a slimline PS2 where I installed FMCB on a long time ago. I recently picked up a v9 phat PS2 and I thought I could simply boot it to FMCB from my slim's memory card but it doesn't work. Anyone know why?

EDIT: It might be because I didn't originally do a multiversion-install. I don't remember how I installed it as it was long ago.

You need a multi setup, not individual. Just redo it again using the latest setup files and choose multi.

I think you should be able to re install it opening the .elf of the installer(through ulaunchelf) with the slim ps2, then choose the multi console setup.

I'm not 100% on this but I am semi-sure that the 9xxxx Series and FreeMCBoot don't work together...

This may have been fixed, but chances are it's not

Thanks for the help. Since I already have FMCB on the slim I'll just download the installation file again and do a multi-version install.

I think it's still the case, but that's not my model. My Slim is a v14 (SCPH-7500x). The fat one I got is a v9 or v10 (SCPH-5000x), which are apparently the worst PS2 models ever because of high laser failure.

May as well get the adapter & an hdd since you've upgraded

fhdb is for hard drive install of pretty much all you need

vid instruction "how to install FHDB 1.93 noobie package" including software required

YES. I remember this vid. Someone finally showed me where I could get fhdb and how to put it on a WD 150 gig ide hdd. Computer guy even gave me an ide cable for free!!! My old computer had both sata and one ide slot on mobo at the time. Don't know why more people don't go the fhdb route. Raw copy tool DOES work!!!! :D :D Once everything was setup, it would take me about 14 mins. to transfer a game from my pc to my PS2 using ethernet brick. Not as slow as I thought. Less time taking things apart and more time transferring and playing games!!! :D :D :D

Funny to call it an 'upgrade'. I always liked the slim more because it's so small and looks nice, unlike PSone. But now with the fat I get a special early 2000s nostalgia feeling from it.

AFAIK FMCB has the necessary software for playing games off HDD. I forgot what it's called.
