The player admitted to cheating, so he does not use ps2. I do use ps2 and have roughly 2 second loading times. Nice assumptions lol.
Well if the player admitted to cheating then there really is no issue. Avoid playing with them or banlist them. But my apparently wrong assumptions were based on some chat comments i'd seen from one of those players.
Good on you for sticking with original hardware
! My PS2 controllers never lasted long playing OB, so i stick to PCSX2, which lets me use wired PS4 style controllers that are far more robust. Also since i only play difficult mods these days it is a pain to frequently transfer .ISOs to PS2. And i have no means to record or stream from console either.
