PS2 Intro Loader is a homebrew application that enables you to play a custom intro video file on your PlayStation 2. It will then exit to a specified ELF stored on your Memory Card.
It is designed to be launched on console boot as AUTO E1 Launch Key via FMCB/FHDB.
Place a video file named 'intro.avi' onto the root of USB device. E.g. mass:/intro.avi Place INTROLDR.ELF on either MC, when first launched it will create an 'INTRO' folder containing a config file on MC. The default ELF that will be launched on exit is mc1:/BOOT/BOOT.ELF - if not found, the Browser will be launched. If launched from any device other than MC, the default settings will be used and the Browser will be launched on exit. Run INTROLDR.ELF - via FMCB, LaunchELF or any other homebrew ELF launcher.
The config file can be customised and either USB or HDD can be specified for source of video. If using internal HDD, ensure that video is stored in the 'common' partition. E.g. pfs:/__common/intro.avi The video mode can also be specified in the config file, the options are: AUTO, NTSC, PAL, and 720p. The exit path can be customised to launch any ELF stored on your MC in either slot. The intro video filename can also be changed by editing the config file.
