Memcard Pro 2

Does anyone have one of these? I'm trying to get mine set up. I was under the impression that, once you get OPL installed on it, it would automatically switch between card pages or whatever based on what game you're playing, but mine doesn't seem to be doing that. Am I just moronic? Is that only for non-disc based game copies?

    Yep.
    GameID doesn't work with PS2 discs, only backups, and you need a special version of OPL as well.

    What's the point of that thing when saves on any soft-modded PS2 can be backed up to a USB flash drive? Even 8MB memory card is enough. You're not going to tell me that you play 20 games at the same time, right?

      I do that thing and it's a hassle to manage, specially when dealing with huge stuff like wrestling games or shit you don't wanna move (games with unlockables like fighting games and rhythm games). It's painfully slow. I'm actually waiting for this thing since I pre-ordered one and just started shipping.

    Can this work as a PS1 card for playing PS1 games in a PS2? Or will it only function as a PS2 card in a PS2?

    Does it have any sort of protection for not frying your PS1 if you forget it in PS2 mode when you plug it in? I recall the SD2PSX, basically a DIY FOSS version of this, has a warning about plugging it into a PS1 while it's set to PS2 mode.

            Are you saying while it's plugged into a PS2 you can switch it between PS1 and PS2 modes? Because if so, that's not what I am asking. I was asking if it was left in PS2 mode and you plug it into a PS1. The SD2PSX warns that can damage the PS1 and/or the card since the PS2 cards apparently draw more power than a PS1 port was meant to supply.

          It has several features. Auto-card switching with OPL, cloud backups, FMCB, etc.

          I’m really confused by the need for this one, OPL gives you virtual cards on a per game basis. You can even retrieve your files pretty easily now that OPL supports exFat.

          >I’m really confused by the need for this one, OPL gives you virtual cards on a per game basis.

          USB saves are not compatible with every game
          Works in both a PS1 and PS2
          PS1 and/or PS2 do not need to be modded to use it
          Nothing to setup or configure on your consoles
          Can auto-switch to the virtual card on your PS1 as well if you have an xStation in it
          Opens the route to modding your PS2 with FMCB
          Can access the card remotely to download/upload saves from your PC or internet
          Automatic cloud saves/backups
          Display that tells you the state of the device

          There is also future planned support for SMB support, for it to function as a wireless receiver for an upcoming wireless controller, and as an OPL block device (which is most likely for MX4SIO-like functionality).

            I have a Memcardpro for PS1, and I understand the value of using it in conjunction with my XStation for automatic switching, but not a single one of those features for a PS2 Memcardpro are compelling other than the games that cannot use virtual memory cards from OPL, which I’m taking your word on.
            What’s the point of cloud saves? Just take the memory card out and use it on another console.
            Why do you need a display telling you it’s saving or loading? The game does that already.
            A non modded console doesn’t support automatic game save switching, so why bother using it over a memory card, they don’t have a strict file size limit like the ps1, and have a quite generous size for saves at 4mb. Again avoidable with virtual cards built into OPL anyways.
            OPLs virtual memory cards can be downloaded uploaded and shared on the internet.
            You can buy Free McBoot memory cards of Amazon for a few dollars.

                They're not nitpicks when they drive up the price of the product for no gain for the end user. The only utility of the MCP2 is not having to swap out your FMCB card for a normal memory card whenever you need to save your file in a VMC-incompatible game, but is the cost of getting off your ass to swap out your memory cards really 42 USD + tax + international shipping? I think not.

                You are a moron

                First of all, there is no reasonable way to have even something as simple as switching your card and nothing else without some sort of CPU. The fact that you don't even realize this really speaks volumes.

                The "CPU" is an ESP32. There is a reason damn near everything is using those these days for such devices, they can do a lot while being cheap as frick. There are places you can get them in packs of 5 or 10 that come up to less than a dollar each. That microcontroller also has the WiFi built-in, none of that was added. The reason it has all these features is because the cheapest possible CPU they could have used for this already has all those features built in, so might as well use them. The screens likewise can be acquired for cents. If they literally stripped out everything, everything, from these things, the screen, usb port, anything that can be torn out of it so it doesn't do anything other than just be a multi-memory card (even though the wifi is built in and you would just not be using it at that point) the price would not even be able to go under $35, there is no more cost to cut until these parts get even cheaper.

                The reason the PS1 version went down in price so much is because it DID have useless crap in it that was pointless and was removed in later versions, such as a FPGA.

                >even ISO load in the future
                Proof?

                >A MX4SIO would be around another $15
                Maybe in Aussie dollars. MX4SIO is cheap

                >Proof?

                I like how you have no arguments left and just resorted to attacking the MX4SIO part. The product page lists OPL Block Device access an upcoming feature. Do you know what that is generally used for? I will give you a hint, the MS4SIO also uses that feature.

                Let me guess, your next reply is "So it's not out YET". Well, you could have gotten a card that does far more than your current one for less if you had patience, but you have already proven that you have no patience and then b***h over the fact that it screws you over.

              Both to auto-backup your saves and to sync them across different devices, or even across hardware and emulators. It's more for purposes of sync/backup, not to have multiple cards, although you can do that too if you wanted to for some reason.

              >Why do you need a display telling you it’s saving or loading? The game does that already.
              It does more than that, lets you know what card is selected, if you are in FMCB mode, status of wifi and other features, etc. The display is useful for when you want to manually switch cards, such as dedicating one to a series of games that has cross-save compatibility (such as the .hack games)

              >A non modded console doesn’t support automatic game save switching, so why bother using it over a memory card,
              You get a practically infinite amount of memory cards, and all stored in one place instead of multiple cards. PS2 and especially PS1 cards can fill up fast if you have a lot of games. The non-downloaded PS2 games I have alone required about a dozen cards altogether for my saves, and I had even more PS1 cards. And again, USB is not an option if your PS2 isn't hacked, or on PS1 at all.

              >You can buy Free McBoot memory cards of Amazon for a few dollars
              The average price for those seems to be $15, this is $40 for a card that lets you do FMBC, have an infinite amount of cards on both PS1 and PS2, and even ISO load in the future. A MX4SIO would be around another $15, that alogn with the FMCB card is already close to the price of a device that can do both and more in one.

              >This is a largely pointless product and this thread seems proof.
              You are arguing in bad faith, if not just flat out trolling, because you are salty you bought a PS1-only version that originally cost nearly double what this one does and are now crying because there is a much better one that can do both PS1 and PS2 and much more for less.
