OPL Ps2 Loader

Welcome to the OPL v0.8  User Guides

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.
