Playing PS2 Games Over SMB with Raspberry Pi 4 is Awesome


Hey everyone,

So I am a big fan of the raspberry pi since the first model, and right now I am an owner of both the raspberry pi zero w and now the raspberry pi 4 (4GB) model.

Did you know that if you are a modded ps2 user using OPL, there is a cool way of loading games over SMB without using a laptop, PC, or a router? Yes, its called using the rasberry pi 4 (which I’ll call RPI4).

Granted, the RPI4 is a bit overkill for just hosting a smb server, but I like to use it for other things such as a media center or on the fly retro gaming machine.

Whatever the case maybe, I made a quick tutorial today and have hosted it on my youtube channel. I’ve also posted the video below.

  1. Oh this is nice.
    That reminds me. There is something called as lightberry. Me and a friend looked so hard to buy one readymade lightberry. But it’s just not available.

    Their YouTube channel has 5 year old video. Plz have a look at what this device does. On their site they sell the components and leave it to diy. – _-
