I finally got 260x300 to work. I had to resize them with an action in photoshop. it was a simple action just to resize. since it didn't convert the images, I didn't have an issue doing over 10,000 images. I just kept the resolutions the same since it was too much work to redo things as png considering photoshop doesn't work right when converting and saving a large number of files. one thing I discovered is that mm looks in the ps2iso folder for artwork. I thought it looked in the retro folder of mm like webman mod does, but apparently it doesn't. I think artwork is supposed to be transferred from the retro folder to the ps2 folder, but it only transferred one piece of artwork and screwed up the second, so I transferred over the artwork from my pc to the ps2iso folder, renaming everything to reflect the iso's, and now everything works. I'm starting to encounter more issues with my system such as crashing while exiting multiman or crashing after updating the game's database (after selecting restart ps3). then, I have those issues with ps2 games. I think my hdd is dying and I have no money to replace it. I plan to replace the hdd with a 1TB hdd (currently using a 750GB hdd for the past 8 years with very little play). I need to back it up, but I can't until I get my laptop back from repairs. I don't dare plug in any hdds to my old laptop since I think a powersurge caused bsod at random times and killed one of my hdds. that's my theory anyway. all of that was plugged into a dj power strip with toggle switches for each device. I've since replaced it with a surge protector which has 11 inputs and enough space in between them for those bulky ac adapters.. I wish my hdd survived longer considering everything is starting to break. my 360's 1TB hdd still works without issue, so maybe nonuse affects the ps3 more? I play my wii u daily, and my hdd works like a champ. though, my vWii hdd died for some reason, but I think in that case, it was a defective drive, and since it was still under warranty, I got a replacement which is currently holding my ps3's internal hdd backup. my vWii backup is on two hdds since I love the system so much! if the hdd from my ps3 is still good, I'll just use it for my windows backup. I'm currently using a 500GB one for that which doesn't have my qcma backups on it. I did save those to two hdds as well. I'll probably just restore that if dell reinstalls the os. I do have the os files on a flash drive, the one I plan to use for ps4 pkgs. I think it's 64GBs and very fast.
