1.If I want to run games over usb I have to use openps2 loader.
2.If I want to run burned games,I will first have to ESR patch them on a pc (got patcher 0.24),then simply select ESR from the menu.
3.If I want to run retail discs,I simply press launch disc.
4.Homebrew can be installed anywhere so long as I point them correctly on the FMCBConfig.
1: Yes, you will need OPL.
2: Yes, you'll have to use ESR. Though when you place your burned game in it *should* play automatically like any retail game.
3: You can do it that way, yes, but generally it'll automatically start when you place the disc in (assuming the power is on already).
4: That is exactly correct.
To be a little more specific, since you seem a little unsure: FMCB basically just modifies the boot sequence to run a modified OSDSYS from the MC instead of the preconfigured one, so in essence everything will still work exactly the same except with the ability to run .elf files, which then allow you to run loaders, emulators and game backups.
