    I would like to list all changes (mostly in 'layman's terms') of 'Open PS2 Loader' since Version 0.9.3...

    • no Childpoof-build anymore, but a parental-control-feature instead!
    • Support for a lot more VModes, including HiRes-VModes (1080i, 720p, different VGA-Modes, etc.)
    • Support for HiRes-GUI, -covers, -backgrounds, etc.
    • updated GSM-Support
    • updated VMC-Support
    • much less compile-time-flags/options (VMC, GSM, CHILDPROOF, etc.)
    • Higher device-compatibility
    • Higher game-compatibility
    • Higher speeds on all devices (even stutter-free FMVs for a lot of games via USB)
    • Sound is gonna be a cool new addition!
    • PADEMU (or was that already included in 0.9.3?) with in-game- and in-GUI-support, including Multitap-emulation for DS3/DS4 (and partially XBOX360, but that's not in the ifcaro-repo)... This also has quite some potential to be changed/extended into a kind of 'Input Device Manager' (potential 0.9.5-feature)
    • 'Block Device Manager' is not yet ready for a merge, but has huge potential! (potential 0.9.5-feature)
    • etc.
    Please mention the things I forgot!

    I (or hopefully a moderator) will add your suggestions to the list! :)


    Why am I writing 'potential 0.9.5-feature'?
    Because I think it is about time, to tag (the current) OPL '0.9.4'...

    Here are few missing changes:
    1. Theoretically there is "Higher game-compatibility", but anyway...
      Few games fixes:
    2. Fixed .ul support:

    Why not wait for x-mass?
    It will\can be great gift for the PS2 community in 2018.

    According to compatibility list, Parappa the Rapper 2 should work with OPL r896 through HDD/SMB.
    Audio sync problems on SMB. Test was made at 01/07/2017.
    http://www.ps2-home.com/forum/page/opl-game-compatibility-list-P.
    Street Fighter: EX3 should work with OPL 0.9.2 through USB/HDD with mode 2.
    Boot & Loading are very long.

    More lists can be found here:
    http://www.psx-place.com/threads/open-ps2-loader-game-compatibility-lists.19037/.

    BTW Street Fighter: EX3 is on CD.
    To convert it from BIN to ISO try WinBin2Iso:

    I have no problem with the suggestion, but the scene is also not so much about 'matching dates'... (but rather about knowledge, experience and some fun) ;)

    I however think, that it advanced sooo much since 0.9.3, that it should be 0.9.8 already...

    Thanks I just really prefer to have all games working on one version instead of having to load different versions for different games. I already got them working on PS2ESDL but I'd rather stick with latest OPL for all games.

    Anyway, does the In-Game-Screenshot (IGS) was in some way deleted?
    Or maybe currently it's not in main repo, or automated bot\script is not making it?

    I've found Detailed ChangeLog for OPL from rev941 to rev1171
    Currently latest OPL is 1193.
    It can be downloaded from the attachment.

    AFAIK, it's still there in the code, I can see the option in the makefile.


    Nice, that will help a lot.

    All I can say is that it's definitely time for a new public build.

    Look at the brackets in the first sentence in the first post!

    Essentially, this thread is meant to list new features and changes for laymans and John Does, so once a 0.9.4-version is released, we already have a list to refer to! ;)

    Layman --> (In our case it are) those who do not understand the 'techno-babble'...
    John Doe = Max Musterman = Perico de los palotes (or similar?)

    Essentially it is a list for Mr./Mrs./any LGBTQ-Acronym for a gender, lol... of a person who is not involved too deeply into the PS2-Scene, i.e. 'Mr. Normal'! ;)

    Best regards,

    0.9.4 is long overdue. I hope a stable public build can be uploaded this year. X-mas would really be a great time to do it as a gift for the community.

    I forgot that you're still providing BETA releases from Ifcaro repository.
    Why not add it into Resources?

    Unfortunately Bot\script for Automated daily build system for OPL & wLe broke at 01\11\2018.
    So the latest OPL release in that script is 1196.

    If you're busy or you'll have any trouble with adding this resource, try preview from attachment
    "OPL BETA Resource.txt" along with "opl_logo_96x96.png" for resource icon.


    BTW I have also uploaded Detailed changelog from 941 to 1200 ("DETAILED_CHANGELOG-941_1200.txt") for OPL.

    Best regards.
