I recently have been buying HDD compatible games for my Sony Playstation 2 and notice that NHL 2K5 does not install onto the Hard Drive but it does use the HDD as a Memory Card... Is there is a setting or a game mode that I have to do to activate it?? I notice that the other ESPN 2k5 games automatically install on the HDD , maybe I have a bad copy??

Hmm, do you have access to a manual? I wonder if the game only used the HD as a memory card only.

I don't own the game, so I cannot test. I do own an official HD though.

Are you working with official HDD functionality (ie. not hacking/homebrew) ?

I thought the Game had a partial HDD Installation like the other Sega 2K Sport games... I got the info from the Playstation 2 HDD Wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_2_Expansion_Bay#Hard_disk_drive


On a side note....I also bought The Urbz: Sims in the City which is suppose to have HDD install option but only uses the HDD as a Memory Card... The page talks about using a 512 MB "__tmp" Partition to cache Game Files to speed up load times but I dont see it installed on the HDD... Im thinking its a temporary cache that is on the HDD but not written to it....

Oh well..

Yea too bad some games only use save support. Interesting about The Urbz.

Oh wow, Street Fighter Alpha Anthology and Metal Saga both use the HDD... cool! I was not aware of that. I wonder what the difference in load times are with SFAA.
