    OPL Manager Guide

    Please read everything carefully and follow the Rules


    • This tutorial is for the HDD/USB loading!!
    • This Guide is for the cover/disk art to load, and not just the I.D/Name.

    • Folder/s Instructions
    • Use all "UPPERCASE" when naming the folders.
    • Make a Folder In C:\, and name it PS2.
    • Now make a folder in the PS2 Folder , and name it OPL
    • You Must make Four other Folder's named ART, CD, DVD, CFG .
    • Make sure to put all Four Folders" into the OPL folder.
    • Example:C:\PS2\OPL\ART,DVD,CD,CFG
    • You will need to put the CD ISO into the CD folder and the DVD ISo Into the DVD folder.

    • Renaming/I.D'ing Your Game.
    • Download Fixiso and extract it.
    • Now go to where you extracted Fixiso.
    • Locate all the ps2 games you have and put them in the same folder as Fixiso...
    • Just the "ISO"..Example: C:/Fixiso/GTA4.Iso.
    • Now double click the "Fixiso".exe file.
    • It will automatically find the right Id Number for said Game.
      DOne, move on to next part.

    • OPL Manager Part.
    • Now that you have the right ID for your game...
    • Download "OPL Manager V12"
    • Extract and open OPL Manager.V12
    • Now Manually enter the location of your PS2\OPL folders
    • Go to OPl Manager and go to "Settings"
    • It will ask if you want to enter the location manually, 'Press The Yes Key".
    • Example;C:\PS2\OPL
    • Now when you open OPL, you will see your games.
    • Now you just hit the "Download Cover/Disk", and wait for them to download.
    • Note:You might have to right click on the OPLV12 App and Run as Admin, for it to work properly.
      Done .

    • The below is all done on the PS2 Console.

    • Now to get the HDD partitioned...
    • Power on your PS2 and go launch, UlaunchELF
    • Now go to FileBrowser, than go to MISC
    • And finally go to HDDManager.
    • Press R1 on the Controller.
    • Press the O Button to Create Partition.
    • Name the partition OPL (UPPERCASE) and go down and press ok....
    • I made my Partition 256MB...Shouldn't need much more.
    • Now go to the PS2\opl\Art folder and copy the Art folder over to a fat formatted usb stick.
    • Now transfer the Art folder from the usb to the OPL folder on the HDD0.
    • Go to ULaunchELF and load it.
    • Go to FileBrowser, Go to Mass...
    • Hover over the ART Folder and press R1.
    • Now go to copy and press the Triangle button to go back.
    • Now go to HDD0 and go down to your +OPL folder & click O.k..
    • Now you want to hit R1 and paste the folder.
    • Now you are done. Enjoy.
    • From here on in , all you have to do is copy from Mass Art folder to the HDD0 Art folder.


    Thanks

    Nice guide, I made it a sticky. I went through the entire guide and then realized I use HD Loader to load backup from the internal HDD. So I thought I'd upgrade my HDD to fit more games and install OPL in the process.

    When I enable themes the cover art is not displayed anymore. When I disable themes then the cover art is displayed again. I'll explain my set up, I have a Phat 30001 with internal HDD, OPL is installed to my memory card because for some reason I cannot get the path for it to be displayed (in the PS2 main menu) if I have the path set to my internal HDD. The ART and THM folders are in the OPL folder of the OPL partition on my internal HDD. The cover art and the themes both work, just not at the same time.

    My theme folder is actually on my mc0/usb, that's how mines is set up.
    Try setting the path to one of thee above,after you made the folders and put the themes on said device.

    Maybe I'll wait for them to update their apps. I'd rather not leave my usb thumb stick plugged in, when I do and I start my PS2 FMCB freezes at the loading screen. Also when I'm in the file browser and exit to FMCB it also freezes when I leave my thumb stick plugged in, so not using a thumb stick will be good for me. I'm happy with a method to load from the internal HDD, it don't have to look good. Maybe in the future when everything works good together I will update it.

    I'll try to duplicate your problem and see if I can remedy it.

    EDIT: Try these themes from this Link.

    I had the same results as you did when running from the internal HDD.

    But those themes above worked for me .
    Also make sure you are saving the changes in the opl manager.

    Remember when setting up the paths you must also name the program you want it to point to, and make sure all three paths leads to the same ELF file, That will make the opl show up on your front screen.

    As for the freezing , i only get that when I am exiting OPL, not when using usb drive , so am lost on that one.

    From what I can tell , it looks like some of these themes aren't meant for the opl v9.1...But earlier versions.
