Nice to have. I think I have Flashback on DC here somewhere, but for now I'm playing it on my PSP.

If you got a Mod-Chip, this is easy. You only need to care for a few things.

1) Burn CD/DVD in ISO1-Mode (Joliet doesnt hurts, but usually doesnt helps either ).
2) Place the app on the root dir. The booting file (usually .ELF extension) must be uppercase 8.3 Format (ISO1-Restriction). In most cases all files must be uppercase Names.
3) Add a SYSTEM.CNF File, it tells the PS2 which file to boot. Take the SYSTEM.CNF from a PS2-Game and edit the first line. ex.:
Code:
BOOT2 = cdrom0:\SLES_507.03;1
VER = 1.00
VMODE = PAL
to
Code:
BOOT2 = cdrom0:\MYAPP.ELF;1
VER = 1.00
VMODE = PAL
4) optionally you can copy as much additional stuff on the CD/DVD, but theres a restriction that the root-dir must only have a few Files/Folders - I think 7 is the limit. For example you could place a menu-App (Launchelf) on the root, and add a dozend different apps in a Folder on the same cd.

Without a Chip (wg. Swaptrick ) you additionally must ensure the Boot-Executable is placed on a specific sector on the Disc. I never used that method, so I dont know how you`d do that


PS. The control in Flashback is quite troublesome, you cant duck and then roll, atleast not controllable. Seems like its not handling "diagonal" input.

Thanks a lot for your replies.

I had an original PS2 but gave it away when I bought one of the new (quieter) smaller PS2s. Not modded at present, can you mod the small PS2s ?

You can also buy a program called HDAdvance! There are two versions available, one for the original ps2 sporting an ethernet adaptor and hard drive or a new one for the slimline ps2 and a common bog standard usb2 external hard drive
