Open PS2 Loader (OPL) is an application designed to allow you to play your PS2 games from an Internal HDD, a connected USB device or a networked PC from either a PS2 console or a PS3 console that supports PS2 Backwards Compatibility. PS3 doesnt support Internal HDD for PS2 games.
You will need to use specialized software designed to install those games to your devices which you can backup right from your game discs or ISO's stored on your PC. Use the NavBar above to find information on formatting, game installation, compatibility and more.
A new GUI has been implimented with many new options and features, so older OPL version configurations will not be compatible with OPL v0.8.
Version 0.8 - Download
How to use:
Boot the OPS2LD.ELF from any homebrew ELF Launching app like Free McBoot or uLaunchELF. Visit the forums for more info on ELF Launchers.
You need to have a retail SwapMagic 3.6+ or 3.8 disc. (currently there is no other option available)
The steps for loading Open PS2 Loader :
1. Rename OPS2LD.ELF to SMBOOT0.ELF
2. Make a folder in the root of a USB device, name it SWAPMAGIC and copy the SMBOOT0.ELF into it.
3. Launch SwapMagic in your PS3 and press UP+L1, then Open PS2 Loader should start.
SwapMagic has 4 options to run an ELF file, so you can use any of them if you have other ELFs your also using with SwapMagic.
