Running PS2 games from fileserver

Did you know that it is possible to run PS2 games from any SMB powered server? You can store your games on a Server, NAS or your PC. This helps keeping your fragile PS2 laser alive, saves your games and speeds up loading times. How?

You simply need a SMB share - Windows users have the easiest way. Linux users can use samba. The share should be accessible with an anonymous guest account but it can be password protected (didn't test). The share is called "PS2SMB" by default but its name may vary. Connect your PS2 to your network. Run "OpenPS2Loader" (download v0.9 here). Fill in all necessary settings to connect your PS2 with your SMB share. Now you can run ISO images or USB Advance slices through network. Have fun!
