Open PS2 Loader - Are you looking to load PS2 ISOs on a modded PS2 or PS3? One of the old scene's most popular loaders is here to help. Huge changes are afoot!

The PS2 community has almost died completely, but SP193 and Bat Rastard are determined to keep things moving. Open PS2 Loader 0.9.2 works just as well as it used to when loading all of your favorite games. It can work through HDD, USB, and even SMB transfer protocol should you have the means to accomplish that. There are tons of under the hood changes to make the suite compatible with more hardware, and many of the previous version's error messages have been made far more understandable to the casual user. Check out the full release notes below!


Open PS2 Loader (OPL) is a 100% Open source game and application loader for
the PS2 and PS3 units. It now supports *.ISO images on HDD, Ethernet SMB
shares, and USB while also maintaining compatibility with USB Advance/Extreme
format. It's now the most compatible homebrew loader and it should work
without ps2load or change DNASXXX.IMG tricks.

OPL is also developed continuously - anyone can contribute improvements to
the project due to its open source nature.

For updated compatibility lists, visit the Open PS2 Loader forum at:

How to use

OPL uses the same directory tree structure across HDD, SMB, and
USB modes ...

--- "CD" (for games on CD media - i.e. blue-bottom discs)
--- "DVD (for DVD5 images; DVD9 images on USB must be split)
--- "VMC" (for 8MB Virtual Memory Card images)
--- "CFG" (for saving per-game configuation files)
--- "ART" (for box and disc art images)
--- "THM" (for themes support)

Game files on USB must be perfectly defragmented either file by file or
by whole drive, and Dual Layer DVD9 images must be split to avoid the 4GB
limitations of the FAT32 file system. We recommend Power Defragmenter
for best defragging results, and our own comman line tool iso2usbld to
convert or split games into USB Advance/Extreme format ...

RejZoR - Power Defragmenter 3.0 released!

Other utilities are: USBUtil 2.0, USB Extreme installer or USB Insane.

For loading games by SMB protocol you need to share a folder (ex: PS2SMB)
on the host machine or NAS device and make sure that it has full read and
write permissions. USB Advance/Extreme format is optional - *.ISO images
are supported using the folder structure above with the added bonus that
DVD9 images don't have to be split if your SMB device uses the NTFS or
EXT3/4 file system.

For PS2, 48-bit LBA internal HDDs up to 1TB are supported. They have to be
formatted with either WINHIIP or uLaunch. From there, use uLaunch to make a
partition (rec. minumum of 2GB) named "OPL". If OPL detects this partition
at start up, it'll automatically create the above directory structure. Use
it to migrate ART, THEMES, CFGs, VMCs, etc. off your MC or USB stick to the
internal HDD and free up space on those devices.

To launch OPL, you can use any of the existing methods for loading an
executable elf.

On PS3, you need an original SwapMagic 3.6+ or 3.8 disc (at the moment
there aren't any other options). The steps for loading OPL on a PS3 are:

2. Make a folder in root of USB device called SWAPMAGIC and copy
SMBOOT0.ELF to it.
3. Launch SwapMagic in PS3 and press UP+L1 then Open PS2 Loader should

There are 4 forms for launching elfs in SwapMagic.


Some notes for devs
Open PS2 Loader needs the latest PS2SDK

NOTE 1 - An IGR from OPLGSM to OPL (and vice versa) has produced BSODs in our initial tests. We're looking into this quirk. In the mean time, consider power-cycling the PS2 before switching between GSM and non-GSM builds, or populate your IGR Path specifically with a GSM-build - our tests show when GSM is enabled and still resident, an IGR directly to a GSM-build rarely produces the BSOD (likewise with Vanilla OPL IGR'ing directly to Vanilla OPL) ...
