    Hello all!

    I am running Free McBoot [version 1.8] and OPL. OPL is installed on the harddrive. I want to to add a shortcut for OPL to the OSDSYS. When try to do so with the Free McBoot Configurator and click on ''configure Item 2:'', give said item a name my HDD storage device doesn't show up in the list of pathways to choose.

    I am aware I can manually change the (order of) items on the OSDSYS by editing ''FREEMCB.CNF'' with notepad. But given that the HDD doesn't show up on the build-in configurator, I am wondering if it would be safe to do so.

    Does anybody have any advice or thoughts on the matter?

    FMCB does not support the PS2 HDD unit.
    If you want to use the HDD unit, you need FHDB

    Ah, I see! Thank you for your answer. :adoration:

    FHDB requires the browser 2.00 update, right? Is it possible to install that one on a PAL-console without modchip or any hardmodding whatsoever?

    It was made for use with the browser update, but you do not strictly need it. The only side effects of not having the update, are having a mismatched icon map (icons used in the FHDB configuration file will not be displayed correctly) and the browser itself will not display the HDD unit. The former can be fixed by copying the icons from the FMCB config file.
