Bumping up an old thread here.
There have been some developments in regards to using the PS3 Memory Card Adapter since the last post.
The main thing is that jimmikaelkael, of Free McBoot fame, plus an unidentified hacker have finally created a program to allow for easy installation of FMCB onto the PS2 Memory Card using Windows (http://www.ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/210-Project-PS3MCA-Tool-Update-Full-FMCB-v1.8c-repack-released
). After playing around with it I do have some issues.
The first one has to do with getting it to work. It has to do with "failing to sign boot kelf" when trying to install onto the card. I am not terribly good with Windows based operating systems (I am a Mac user) so I need a little help in figuring this out.
The next issue has to do with the FMCB programs themselves. The programs that are installed are pretty slick and is better than my current install.
However, it has HDLoader which, to my understanding, was supposedly depreciated in favor of Open PS2 Loader. Nothing against HDLoader, my current build has both HDL and OPL. But the repack just has HDL.
The thing here is that, because the install is already prebuilt, there doesn't seem to be a way to add anything to it or even updating any of the programs that will be installed. Is there going to be a program that will allow for custom installs of FMCB using this method? Or is there a hidden method to change the prebuild?
If I can get this to finally work it will be a whole lot better than the Codebreaker method I have been using for FMCB installs.
And, given the existence of OPL, I am surprised that nobody has updated WiinHip to accomodate. I wonder if it could someday be updated to deal with hard to install games like "Half Life", the only game I have never gotten to install. If anybody has simple instructions on getting that one to work I would like to know.
