Default Tutorial: Running Ps2psxe from a usb stick

Well, the title says it all. The tutorial for the Preview from the amazing ffgriever.

Requirements:
A usb stick - it should be formatted to fat32 (I did it with a 512mb stick - so most sizes will do)
Some way to boot from the usb stick - if you don't know anything about this, google Free McBoot.
Ps2psxe - this is the latest version out: http://www.psx-scene.com/forums/atta...7&d=1281560201
Radshell - ps2 command line. http://www.radad.110mb.com/software/ps2/radshell.zip
PSX Bios - I cannot give this out. You'll want either the PAL scph7502 bios for a PAL console or the NTSC scph1001 bios for a NTSC ps2.
A psx game - this isn't a tutorial on making images, so have a .bin or .img ready. YOU MUST OWN THE GAME.

The Method:
Step 1: Download and unzip all of the files to the root of the usb. Also, create a folder called 'game' in the root of your usb. You should have, on your usb drive, the following files and directories:
Code:
snap/ ------------\
plugins/ ----------|
mc/ ---------------|These files unzipped from ps2psxe .zip file
bios/ -------------|
ps2psxe.elf ------/
irx/ ---------------\
rom.rsh -------------|
reset.rsh -----------|
radshell.txt --------|
radshell.rsh --------|
radshell.elf --------|
net.rsh -------------| Unzipped from Radshell .zip file
mcx.rsh -------------|
mc.rsh --------------|
mass.rsh ------------|
hdd.rsh -------------|
dev9.rsh -----------/
game/ ------------------ You should have created this yourself
Also, inside you should "bios" directory, you should have a bios file (either scph7502.bin or scph1001.bin, preferably scph7502.bin)

Step 2:
Next, grab your game file (.bin or .img) and put it in the "game" directory you created. It doesn't matter where you put it, just for the ease of this tutorial, put it in the "game" folder. You can change it later.

Step 3:
Now, you're gonna edit "radshell.rsh" - that is the file that tells the command line program RadShell what to do when it starts up. Since you are probably going to want it just to launch ps2psxe, we'll add this line at the bottom of it:

Code:
run "mass:/ps2psxe.elf" -cdimage=game/asdf/asdf.bin
So your "radshell.rsh" file should now be:

Code:
fontsize 0.6
border 2 2

store reset.rsh
store mc.rsh
store mcx.rsh
store irx/usbhdfsd.irx
store mass.rsh
store irx/poweroff.irx
store irx/ps2dev9.irx
store dev9.rsh
store irx/ps2atad.irx
store irx/ps2hdd.irx
store irx/ps2fs.irx
store hdd.rsh
store irx/romdir.irx
store rom.rsh

script int:reset.rsh

set prompt "$$CD>"
set RSH_DIR "$CD"
set reboot "run rom0:OSDSYS"
set reset "script int:reset.rsh"
cls
version
sleep 1
run "mass:/ps2psxe.elf" -cdimage=game/asdf/asdf.bin
In this example, /asdf/asdf.bin is the path to your game. You can change it to whatever you called your game (e.g, you put a file in the "game" folder in the root of your usb drive called tomba.img, you would put run "mass:/ps2psxe.elf" -cdimage=game/tomba.img at the end of rasdshell.rsh instead.

If you have a NTSC tv, put a space then -ntsc at the end the line, like this:
Code:
run "mass:/ps2psxe.elf" -cdimage=game/asdf/asdf.bin -ntsc
Step 4:
That should be it. Turn on your ps2 and launch radshell.elf however you want.

If anything is wrong, please PM me! I got this working at 1 in the morning, and thought, how nice would it have been to just have a tutorial! I hope this helps someone!

Regards,
thehardykid

Well, in all honesty, every now and then it just doesn't work. That being said, you can look at your flash drive and see if the transfer light (if it has one) is flashing. If so, the game is loading. If not, try putting the game in a different location, and wrapping quotes ("") around the games location and put mass:/ at the front of it; i.e:
Code:
-cdimage="mass:/game/asdf/asdf.bin"
Good luck!

EDIT: I was playing around and a game wasn't working - you know what it was? I put a slash at the beginnig of the -cdimage switch. Remember, file names don't start with a slash! Lol

Default Re: Tutorial: Running Ps2psxe from a usb stick

I'm having difficulty with my radshell script. When I load everything, the program always tells me mass:/ps2psxe.elf not a real elf and then it just sits there. Here is the code I put into my radshell.rsh script:

Code:
fontsize 0.6
border 2 2

store reset.rsh
store mc.rsh
store mcx.rsh
store irx/usbhdfsd.irx
store mass.rsh
store irx/poweroff.irx
store irx/ps2dev9.irx
store dev9.rsh
store irx/ps2atad.irx
store irx/ps2hdd.irx
store irx/ps2fs.irx
store hdd.rsh
store irx/romdir.irx
store rom.rsh

script int:reset.rsh

set prompt "$$CD>"
set RSH_DIR "$CD"
set reboot "run rom0:OSDSYS"
set reset "script int:reset.rsh"
cls
version

run ps2psxe.elf -ntsc -cdimage=game/Colin.img
So far the only way I can get it to work is by typing this after mass:>
Code:
 run ps2psxe.elf -ntsc -cdimage=game/Colin.img
Which doesn't make much sense given the same thing is smack dab in the script I created...

Default Re: Tutorial: Running Ps2psxe from a usb stick

One known problem with radshell and USB mass storage is that when return is made from the script command that loads the mass storage driver (USBHDFSD.IRX is the best one), the device driver is still performing its initialization, and any access attempts made before that is completed are doomed to fail. The time required for this initialization can vary greatly depending on the USB drive you are using.

I usually solve this problem by adding some dummy 'echo' commands to the script, between the point where the IRX is launched and the point where I start to access anything on the "mass:" device, just to add some needed delay.

Best regards: dlanor
