Playstation 2 Hard Drive - Game Compatibility List
List updated: 02-09-10

FAQ for Game Compatibility
F.A.Q
PS2 HDD Game Compatibility List


This FAQ is about game compatibility and not specific HDD issues, please consult the forums if you have issues not listed in this FAQ.


Q
What is this list about?

A
PS2 games can be run from a HDD connected to your PS2, with the help of homebrew apps, such as HD Loader, USB Extreme, ToxicOS, etc.
Since the first version of HD Loader was released, Sony and game manufactures changed some of their games purposefully to not work with HD Loader, causing them to become "incompatible". This list is about games that are compatible and those not compatible.
In addition to those, many games have been found to become compatible after a "fix" to either the game prior to installing it or to the HD Loader app itself, via patches. When a fix was found and a patch created for HDL, it recieved a new version number, the current version as of this f.a.q. is HDLv0.8c.

Q
The yellow icon says 'more info', but where is this info?
A
Simply put your mouse pointer over any yellow icon and a small pop-up displays the additional info reported for that game. Javascript must be enabled in your browser.

Q
It says to swap IMG or IOPRP files.....how do you do that?
A
Many games have IOPRP files in them as network driver files to go online or use in LAN play. Some games can be 'fixed' by using IOPRP files from other known games that already work, making some games compatible in USB HDD gaming where they otherwise dont work with the ones that came in the game.   Download tutorial

Q

How do you change the Modes for HD Loader?
A
Once you see a game listed in HDL's game List, you can change the modes by highlighting the game in the list and pressing the SELECT button.
Choose the mode you wish and press SELECT to save the change and return to the Game List screen.
 
Q
It says Mode and a number, but theres no number in the selection screens?
A
Originally HD Loader had only 3 Modes to choose from. Over time new "patches" were created for HDL and new modes added, but a brief explaination was opted instead of a number. Many still refer to a number as a shortcut for simplicity, Mode1 would be the first from the top in the list, Mode2 as the second, etc...

Q
What do those all these  modes mean?

A
There are 2 type of Modes to use with HDL, DMA and  Patch:

Patch Modes
These modes are applied by pressing SELECT from the Game List menu.
Yes
enables the patch for that mode and No disables the patch.

  1. Slow HDD access
  2. Disable DVD9 support
  3. Kill HDL after launch
  4. Date/timefix 2
  5. Date/timefix 3
  6. Disable network support
  7. Disable CzC patch
  8. Soul Caliber 2 / Suikoden V

DMA Modes
These modes control HDD read speeds and are enabled during the loading of HDL. Press& hold the corresponding button  while the splash screen is displaying:

That is the default setup, but you can change the button presses by using the HDL GUI patch app.
Note
: not all versions will have DMA support enabled, so you may need to patch yourself a personal copy with the HDL GUI Patching app.

Q
What does it mean to use the PS2Load fix?

A
PS2Load is an app that allow you to choose what to boot from a list. You edit a few files and add the apps you want listed. Using this app has allowed some games to run in USB Advance.  Tutorial

Q
How do you apply a PPF Patch to make a game work?

A
There are 2 ways to apply a PPF Patch:
  1. Before you install a game to the HDD, you first must rip the game using IMGBurn or DVD Decrypter to create an ISO. You can then use PPF-O-Matic to apply the patch
  2. Use Winhiip to apply the patch to an already installed game.

Q
Why isnt HD Advance in the List?

A
HD Advance is only a reskinned  clone of HDLoader and works the same way. HD Advance attempted to follow along with new patches when they were available in HD Loader, but the cloners didnt seem willing to name their versions very well and only used a few version names:

HD Advance v1.0 = Original HD Loader
HD Advance v2.0 = HD Loader v0.6d
HD Advance v3.0 = HD Loader v0.7c thru HD Loader v0.8c

Since they didnt use any sort of version history for changes in the 3.0 and created different patched versions with the same number, we can not determine what is applicable to that version.

Q
It says my game is compatible, but its doesnt work for me, why not?
A
Possible reasons:
Q
What is the VMC fix and how can i use it?
A
The VMC fix is using a special made USBMCemu app and editing the game's ISO. You can find info on how to apply the VMC fix to your Game in this tutorial. Follow the part of the tutorial where it says  Tutorial Revision 1.2a.

Q
I found a game thats not on the list, what info do you need for a submission?
A
Game Name : as it appears on the disc and cover
Region:  PAL / US / JAP
Disc type: CD / DVD5 (regular DVD) / DVD9 (dual layer DVD)
App used : ToxicOS 0.41 / HD Loader and version / USB Advance or USB Extreme
Works, dont work or needs a fix

A short description of any fix, patch or mode used to make a game compatible is helpful. And please check to see if its already listed with the same info first. Any NEW information is what we need, even if it conflicts with the current info, but please thoroughly test before submitting any 'Not working' submissions.
