|OPL has been implimented
with the HDL Server to allow you to install PS2 games to your Internal
HDD while inside a PS2 console, over the network.
- HDL Dumx and unzip it to your PC
HDL Dumx contains both HDL Dump
and HDL Dumb . HDL Dump is a command-line
version that is multi-platform, whereas HDL Dumb is Windows GUI based
and with some limitations is also WineLib compatible.
I will use the HDL Dumb GUI for this guide, but those of you who prefer
command-line installing can go to the HDL Dump How-To
page for more info.
You might already have a network connection ready to use or go to
the Main settings screen and configure it. You only need to have a
valid IPCONFIG.DAT in your MC's SYS-CONF folder. This can be
created by OPL when you configure the PS2 IP section or by uLaunchELF's
network configuration screen.
