softmod a ps2 fat?
hi anyone know how to softmod a ps2 without using a ar mc or do you defo need one? i just watched a youtube video about it and thought someone here might know.please help,thanks.oh btw i did search google and found nothing
while action replay is the preferred method you can do it without it. However, this method will require that you find a copy of the game 007 Agent Under Fire (it must not be the greatest hits version, because that one is patched) I found one at my local gamestop for $4. Turn any ps2 game into a swap disc - 1Emulation.Com note that some of the dl links on this site are down, use this site for all you need (including apache 1.1) SKS Apps - Exploit Systems - Wii Ps3 Ps2 Apps - Homebrew Game Downloads

Modchips are far better with a PS2. Since they are more than just a "drive patch", they allow absolutely seamless usage. The better chips actually let you use the net adapter + any HDD to play every game as an iso. You can even plug it into your router and x-fer games from your PC to your PS2. It's probably got far above that since the last 2-3 yrs I've stopped watching their news pages.
softmod has both internal and USB hdd loading as well.

that depends on if you're using a swap magic disc, or just using a softmodded PS2 with free MCB installed in which case you need to patch it and have ESR loader on the PS2 which fools the PS2 into thinking its a DVD.

I've done it with a USB Loader disk, I used a PC to install the games to a hard drive and plugged the hard drive in, stuck the loader disk into the drive and it loaded the games from the Hard Drive. my copy is a little outdated now so it doesn't work for some modern games. but it works great for the GTA games (not San Andreas). No goofed graphics and it sped things up with loading times. always a plus.
FYI I can't remember exactly but I think it is USBEXTREME or something like that. It works for PS2 Fat and PS2 slim, quite helpful for when the PS2 slim starts giving you trouble with loading games from actual disks.

Reason: spelling errors and lack of clarification.
Hmm,... I've been looking into this for a good while now (weeks) and I am not quite sure what all is needed. it all seems a bit overwhelming. And I can't figure out what guides are the most recent.
What I have:
External 160gb hdd,
8mb memory card,
and tons of games, but not the 007 one. and no AR code disks.
Oh, and the usual pc things.. such as a laptop, usb mouse, wireless internet... um... all kinds of usb and other stray cords.
Would there be any way I could just use some sort of these in softmodding? or will i absoulutely have to go buy other things?
I softmoded our wii, but that seemed a lot easier than the reading and searching I have done for the ps2... 0_o
