Memory stick customizable location - pal1000 - 02-06-2014 01:56 PM

I tried implementing this myself, but after successfully implemented the GUI part I ended up overwhelmed by the code complexity and failed making the functional part.
In essence it needs to allow usage of other locations than JPCSP\ms0 for memory stick. I attached the patch file with the work I made. The patch is compatible with r3454-3455.

This is a good start! Smile

I started a long time ago a "virtual file system" (VFS) concept where devices can be easily mounted. This is mostly complete, but not yet active as this might break a lot of games. When the VFS will be active, the functional part for your change will be quite easy: see IoFileMgrForUser, line 674:
Code:
            vfsManager.register("ms0", new LocalVirtualFileSystem("ms0/"));
The fixed string "ms0/" would just need to be replaced by the path selected by the user...
