Bought a Free MC Boot Memory card yesterday. Before it arrives what games should I download to play?
Ps2 thread I guess
PS. Was the fat Ps2 meant to look like the monolith from 2001?
Unless he means a regular memory card he modified himself he probably fucked up and paid more for stuff he can find on google.
What do you even like OP? How do you expect recommendations if you can't elaborate a bit?
The SOCOM games have pretty fun campaigns. Champions of Norrath and its sequel are decent if you like ARPGs. Mister Mosquito's a wacky game that's fun for a bit. A lot of people love God Hand, but I could never get into.
To install FMCB on a regular MMC you still need to be able to boot a burned CD on your PS2 at least once, and not everyone is willing to take those extra needed steps like blocking sensors or whatever else.
When i did mine, i was too scared to fuck up something cause i would have had to open up my slim and i didnt want to, so i just found a neighbour who had an already modded ps2 and asked him to let me use it to install the thing on my MMC.
Still you need to be able to boot that modded 007 disc, and to do so you either need an already modded ps2, or a way to swap discs like the blocked sensor method, or if the PS2 is FAT, to do the ps1 swap trick that still requires you to partially open the console.
Not everyone has a FAT, and not everyone knows FMCB evolved into FHDB anyway.
You better slap a hard drive on that bitch or you're not doing it right.
Try these games out
Rule of Rose
Shadow Hearts Series
Yakuza 1 & 2

There's so much on the PS2, you'll need the space
>can games be played off a USB drive?
Yes, but PS2 has USB 1.0, which is slower than reading games off the discs, meaning eery FMV will stutter, and some loading times might be longer.
If you intend to play games where FMVs dont matter and are skippable(i.e. Tekken 5), go on.
But for games where FMVs are part of the game and are unskippable(i.e. FFX), those are a living hell from USB...the stuttering is not occasional and bearable, it really makes the movies play slower than half speed and the audio crackles the entire time.
Even open world games like GTA:SA become almost impossible to play, because the game is constantly loading parts, so from USB you'll end up with freezes happening every 3-5 seconds whenever a new area is loaded and/or with cars popping in way to late, even directly in front of you at times.
If you have a slim(or a FAT with ethernet adapter but don't want to fiddle with installing an HDD in it), the best option is to keep the USB HDD connected to your pc, and your PS2 cnnected either to the PC ethernet port via a cross cable, or to the modem/router with a normal cable.
Thet way you'll have faster than disc readings and no issues since the connection speed is faster than USB 1.0, although an internal HDD is even faster.
That's why the USB+PC+ethernet cable solution in my post was preceded with "If you have a slim(or a FAT with ethernet adapter but don't want to fiddle with installing an HDD in it)".
If you have a slim you can't install and internal HDD(not easily anyway), and since he says USB seems the easies, he really doesnt want to install an internal HDD even if he has a FAT.
Also, what glitches?
I've used the USB+PC+ethernet cable method cause i had a slim and never had issues, and i used OPL.
>tfw PS2 officially died two months ago
Been forever since I dicked with FMBC, but OPL was the iso loader yeah? Still had to painfully transfer the games slowly over FTP though.
I used the crossover cable method and some games are borderline unplayable, Gitaroo man and Harvest Moon come to mind.
Plus if the connection ever drops out the games gets screwed up. It's a fine method at times but I'm just explaining to the OP that it's the best method.
I only used the IDE to USB adapter you're talking about and yeah it's a bit finicky but just make sure all the pins are connected and it should work after a few tries.
