    Bonjour à vous tous et aussi mes meilleurs voeux pour l'année qui débute.

    Je pense que vous le savez mais je suis aussi le "Algol" que vous connaissez pratiquement tous.

    En effet, j'attend avec impatience ce nouveau OPL093+ qui devrait corriger certaine des grosses erreurs qui j'y ai rencontré pendant mes tests préliminaires du PS2NetBox et aussi du PS2USB.

    Je souhaite vivement que l'affichage des pages de OPL en 16/9 soit rétabli, que le PS2RD ainsi que le GSM fonctionne correctement (ce n'est pas le cas sur mes SCPH50004 et SCPH70004).
    Accessoirement, je souhaite que je puisse "flasher" les deux interfaces car le OPL qui est intégré (en Auto-Boot) n'est pas conforme aux attentes de mon entourage et de moi-même. @ps2netbox, je te ferai parvenir de photos de ce que j'attend et des soucis rencontrés. Les seuls tests que je te ferai seront comme convenu entre nous ceux pour les jeux PS2 et uniquement eux (je respecte krHACKen (@kHn), donc pas de jeux PS1 essayés). Je créerai une liste de compatibilité qui sera soumise à la communauté mondiale par l'intermédiaire d'un fichier très proche de mes listes pour l'OPL officiel. Elle sera liée à un module de type formulaire pour permettre d'entrer les rapports des tests, je recopierai tous les jours en liste les données qui seront contenu dans le formulaire de saisie. La liste ne sera qu'en lecture seule pour éviter qu'elle ne soit détruite accidentellement ou par étourderie. J'en serai l'administrateur principal mais je pourrai aussi en céder l'administration à un autre membre de confiance qui la gèrera avec justesse et impartialité (pourquoi pas @UniqueUserName).

    Voila, j'ai tout dit, je passe la main à "Google Trad" en qui je n'ai aucune confiance pour traduire correctement l'esprit de mes mots.

    Via Google :
    Hello to you all and also my best wishes for the year that begins.

    I think you know it but I am also the "Algol" that you know practically all.

    Indeed, I look forward to this new OPL093 + which should correct some of the big mistakes that I met during my preliminary tests of PS2NetBox and also the PS2USB.

    I strongly hope that the display of OPL pages in 16/9 is restored, that the PS2RD and the GSM works correctly (it is not the case on my SCPH50004 and SCPH70004).
    Incidentally, I wish that I can "flash" the two interfaces because the OPL which is integrated (in Auto-Boot) does not conform to the expectations of my entourage and myself. @ps2netbox, I will send you photos of what I expect and worries. The only tests that I will do to you will be as agreed between us for PS2 games and only them (I respect krHACKen (@kHn), so no PS1 games tried). I will create a compatibility list that will be submitted to the global community via a file very close to my lists for the official OPL. It will be linked to a form module to allow to enter test reports, I will copy every day the data that will be contained in the input form. The list will be read only to prevent it from being accidentally destroyed or by mistake. I will be the main administrator but I will also be able to transfer the administration to another trusted member who will manage it with fairness and impartiality (why not @UniqueUserName).

    Here, I said everything, I pass the hand to "Google Trad" in which I have no confidence to correctly translate the spirit of my words.

    Best regards.

    Hi @AlGollan84 , I have done with a new language packs.
    User can copy language files(*.lng) and font files (*.ttf) to \OPL\SYS\LNG folder and select them from display page .

    Feature more , when a language is named "debug" ( lang_debug.lng ) . a number will be added so translator can quick find the string.
    like this :
    lang_debug.png


    PS2Netbox/PS2USB both can be upgrade ( burn the flash onboard) .
    User can also just copy OPL to memory card , use fmcb launch it .

    I think @kHn will be very glad to see my hardware can support popstarter ,since he give me many help .

    Just test the two units in your way ! Like normal OPL .

    I will send you new version tomorrow , after some check and test .

    Do you supply the fmcb (custom) setup files seperately, if a user(s) encounters a problem and has to format the memory card supplied with the unit?

    I'm talking to a guy at the moment who bought your product, yet has had issues with a corrupted file or something on the memory card. As a result he is having issues with PS2 CD based games booting now, even after a fresh format of the hdd, so what advice is there, if he formats his memory card as a last resort but has no access to the custom opl you coded?

    FMCB is original one , except we add a custom config item , so fmcb will boot the opl on memory card .
    If your memory card is corrupted for some reason , please run uLaunchElf , navigate to mass:,
    copy mass:OPL.ELF to your memory card . This is the OPL for PS2Netbox.

    About PS2 CD based games, there are two formats : ISO /2352 and ISO/2048 .
    OPL only support ISO/2048 format . You can translate by :
    1) load your cd image by any virtual cdrom software ( eg : daemon-tools)
    2) exact image from virtual cdrom using software ( eg : imgburn).

    There are many users encountered this problem .
    So I will add this feature to support 2352 iso image .
    This will be a little performance penalty.

    PS2 Browser show "corrupted data" . this is not a problem , but I do not place a icon on it .
    It is safe to ignore this .

    I see, okay. Just want to confirm, if you can copy that opl.elf from mass: to a different memory card and run a seperate fmcb setup without any restriction.

    Basically, make my own fmcb memory card but with your opl.elf to use on your hardware.

    I ask because i'm not sure how your method is setup.

    Thanks.

    Je pense que de coller les fichiers ".icn" et ".sys" qui sont dans le répertoire d'un OPL quelconque devrait supprimer le problème des "fichiers endommagés". Je l'ai fait et ça fonctionne correctement.

    You mean that, when I'll launch SMS through your OPL MOD,
    HDD in PS2NETBOX will be shown in USB Devices\page
    or in HDD devices\page?

    Does some kind of a SMS mod is also needed?

    Salut.

    Tout ce que tu nous proposes, c'est du vieux !!! Les mienne sont bien plus récentes.
    Moi, ton "bêta-testeur", tu devrais me communiquer au plus tôt les mises à jours (de test) que je t'ai demandé personnellement. C'est urgent car il y a de très nombreuses erreurs que tu dois faire disparaître. Je te les ai toutes communiqué. Travailles-y dessus et fait passer pour mon équipe et moi-même cette dernière mise-à-jour SVP.

    Cordialement.

    Hello.

    All you propose us is old !!! Mine are much newer.
    Me, your "beta-tester", you should communicate to me as soon as possible the updates (test) that I asked you personally. It is urgent because there are many errors that you must make disappear. I communicated them all to you. Work on it and pass for this team and myself this last update.

    Cordially.

    Please download it from here.

    It is very hard to me to communicate with you , so I public a version first
    and resolve problems you report it to me .

    J'ai DL ces fichiers mais quelles sont les améliorations, corrections que tu y as apporté. Je ne peux maintenant me lancer dans des tests sans savoir ce que tu as fait, changé, amélioré, modifié, les bugs supprimés, etc …
    Je ne sais presque jamais (ni personne) ce que tu y as modifié. Tu devrais (comme kHn et tant d'autres) faire un petit fichier "read-me.txt" dans lequel tu inscrirais les changements que tu as fait. C'est la moindre des choses quand on est un développeur sérieux, n'es-tu pas d'accord avec moi ???

    In English :
    I Loaded these files but what are the improvements, corrections that you have made. I can not now test myself without knowing what you did, changed, improved, modified, bugs removed, etc.
    I almost never know (or anyone) what you have changed. You should (like kHn and so many others) make a small file "read-me.txt" in which you would write the changes you made. It's the least of things when you're a serious developer, do not you agree with me ???

    @ps2netbox

    Any reason for the removal of DMA in the latest update? Was it due to lack of space because of the Mode 9 implementation?

    Mode 1 accurate reads helped some problematic games that required slower access times, yet DMA (UDMA/MDMA) options were still useful as a backup plan in case mode 1 didn't work.

    PS2Netbox/PS2USB do not use DMA mode settings . The setting is useless.
