    Thank you very much my dear, I'm going to put here in my PS2 39001, I was using the old version, I'm in the mood to update the FMCB I'm with 1.951 for the last version 1,961 to see if the Vampire: Darkstalkers Collection will run here with the OPL Loader, currently, when I choose one of the games of the collateanea is on a black screen.

    That is great, but a problem in OPL is likely a problem within OPL. You should ask the OPL developer(s) for help instead...
    All PlayStation 2 software will have full control over the console, so FMCB will have no direct effects on any other software.

    Installer Update v0.982

    Changelog:

    • Reverted change from v0.98 - the IOP will no longer be reboot between the signing of each file.
    While I am all for keeping the modules free of unofficial code, it appears that rebooting the IOP between the signing of each file increases the odds of an "Installation failed" happening.
    Such a vague message is printed when an unrecognized error code is encountered. At that point, it does seem like some part of the installer has entered an undefined state, since it is impossible to make another installation after that. I have no wish to deal with such randomly-occuring problems.

    Hence there is less reason to keep the official workaround for supporting both CEX and DEX consoles, in favour of the simpler workaround of getting secrman_special itself to adapt to the DEX. This was done previously.

    Note: no change to FMCB/FHDB was made. You do not have to download the new package, if you had no problems installing FMCB.

    Now, everything is alright.
    Thanks.


    Now, all we need is a faster response in installer when item is highlighted for the first time. ;)
