Playstation2

Recommended Posts

Does any know how to program on Playstation2. I''ve been programming on win plaform for a while now (3D), and I would like to move towards PS2. I saw that codewarrior had a C/C++ compiler for PS2. Where can I get documentation and libraries? Thanx

Officially, you can''t - unless you''re hired by a company that is a licensed Sony developer. If that happens, you''ll be provided with the libraries and documentation (they come with the DTL-10000''s).

Unofficially, there are tools you can use with a properly modified PS2 that will let you xfer binaries across. It''s not pretty, and not for the faint of heart. But it''s better than nothing.

look here

You can plug your PS2 into your PC using a USB cable and download code to it (same with the DreamCast). It has to be a particular kind of USB cable (I didn''t know there were different kinds...).

I haven''t had time to look into it, but I''ve been meaning to...
If you do, lemme know how it goes.

you would need a mod''d PS2, ieee 1394 (firewire) cable, and obviously a firewire card in your PC. you will also need a gameshark2 (depending on your modchip), and the debugger tool from SN. assembler''s and compilers can be located all over the place. your best bet would be the GNU c compiler, which is free.

almost forgot. i would suggest taking a look at the MIPS architecture, first. the full MIPS IV specification can be found at "www.idt.com".
