Contribute Sony HDD to LavosSpawn to speedup the process, perhaps?

Not only an official HDD is compatible with PS2, as you may see at http://ps2drives.x-pec.com/?p=list

ScummVM for PS2 has already support for files in the Hard Disk, but the program itself only loads the .IRX modules from the optical unit.

I think it would be great if the program could load itself from HDD.

I would be interested in trying to help with the PS2 port in order to get it working from the HD or MC, not just CD. This would allow people without a modded PS2 to use the Indepence Exploit to launch ScummVM (which is what I would use). I haven't done any programming in a few years, but I'd be happy to toy around with the PS2 version. I can't seem to find the source code though. I hope I haven't simply overlooked it somewhere on the site.

See backends/ps2 in ScummVM source tree.

I use the independence exploit, but I can´t load the games from my harddisk.

Do you have any idea?

Hi Lavos. I've tried everything but the ELF always crashed on me (DNA animation). Deleting the modern theme does not help either.
edit: solved! I had to change the ulaunch settings to disc control : on
