PS2 Fortuna Project – Alternative for FMCB for PS2 9K models!
4/22/20: Initial release.
With the covid-19 going on and a lot of people staying at home, I thought it was about time to write a quick post related to one of my favorite game consoles of all time, the PS2.
If you have been following me on my youtube channel (Project Phoenix Media), we know that the ps2 homebrew scene is very active.
One project that has gotten some light over the last few months is the Fortuna Project. In short, it is a way to load homebrew programs on your ps2, and the best thing is it is compatible with all PS2 models, even the SCPH-9K series. If you didn’t know, FMCB is not compatible with all SCPH-9K PS2 systems, but the Fortuna Project gets around that.
I speak about it in more detail via my video below.
Also, for those who are looking to purchase a modded memory card either with FMCB and/or Fortuna Project installed, send me a quick email at vstpower at gmail dot com and let’s discuss options.
The difficult part of getting started is you need the tools to begin with to even softmod your memory card. In some cases, it may be cheaper to just get a modded memory card rather than invest in the tools itself.
Anyway, see the video below for an overview of Fortuna Project, and if you got questions, ask them on youtube or come join me on the discord.
