First, I have tried to record the image on DVD+RW, but it wouldn't start.
The PS2 will only read DVD+RW with DVD-ROM booktype. If your burner supports bitsetting, tjeck the booktype setting.

I took the most recent files from the ScummVM site and used quality DVD-R and did everything like you described it here but my PS2 reognizes the DVD as a video DVD. Any suggests?

depends on whom you ask - is using a software exploit to get homebrew running (like on the psp) any more or less illegal than wiring in a separate hardware chip?

A PS2 is just a computer.

It has hardware, plug 'n' play.

If it's illegal, should putting a new graphics card in your PC be illegal?

I see what you mean, but Sony bitch about them because you can play copied games with them, that's all.

Yeah, but what if you use it to play downloaded-for-free-then-burned-onto-a-DVD games? I know that illegal downloading is, well, illegal, but won't making a modchip to play illegal games isn't illegal?

no, but the ps2 is a copyrighted thing, and its illegal to modify registered things afaik... at least in tv and film thats how it works

You know, the modchips aren't that great. I ordered a Swap Magic 3.6, it seems more rational, even if I void my warranty. At least I won't have to completely open up my PS2 to make ScummVM work. I ordered a Flip-Cover one and it's gonna come in about a week, maybe earlier. Then I'll test out ScummVM as a contribution.

Who wants to solder 22 pinheads to 22 wires with the original chip ripped apart from its homeplace? Oh, god, I'm bad at forming words. ;) You know, there is a risk of messing up your PS2 if you don't know squat about electronics, like me. I take the most useable and easy solution to my problem. You can do whatever you walt, I'll stick with the shell change.

Are the DVD files available for this? I would like to create one of these for my PS2, but the link for the example files seems to be broken. Are there any newer instructions available for creating a ScummVM PS2 DVD?

I tried creating one based on the instructions for MC Boot and ESR, but it didn't boot automatically. If I add uLaunchELF, maybe that will fix the problem.

Anyone tried to create a ScummVM PS2 DVD lately?

Thanks!
