To quote, roughly translated: What's new:

  • Added possibility to extract ISO PSX (Game Copy option, press Select on PSX disc) from multiple disks.
  • Added possibility to use tricks disk: ISO hits the / PSXGAMES / CHEATS. The iso should be 2352 bytes per sector that can then be used to adapt to other sizes, creating replicas. For example, the Xploder 4 is not even 10 MB, so it's no big deal to have multiple versions. When asked if you want to start using it and mount it as a first album. See notes for details (the name is the same, I just need an extension and a sector size correct, internally, is list what is in that directory looking for a valid ISO)
  • Changed BD Emu options: there are now separate options for internal or external disk: In internal: libfs always takes patched, can not mount or play as hard. In external: if you mount the disk, not taken libfs patched and is the recommended option. With libfs only recommend it for games that have cached data in the internal HDD.
  • Enabled L2 to show games. At first, the first option to show only R2 PS3 games, while if you press L2 would PSX

And now about other things:

  • I see that you are using my Deank ps1_emu patches. That's no problem, since precisely, if I do things is public for anyone to be able to use, obviously. The problem is that it does not usually release the source code in compliance with applicable licenses and thereby not allowing others we can benefit from their contributions as he takes advantage of ours.
  • BD-Emu Theme internally mounted: roll both not flushed the Grid and it works perfectly [+ laughs]. How not work was if you used the game on installing external internal data (a waste, since most of the game is in that file).
  • PS2-PSP Topic: I'm not going to put up with it.
  • Theme D_Skywalk: I know nothing of the boy and has me worried. Other than that, with the whole thing, I'm getting a lot of changes in the sources and I hope there is no problem then ...
  • Move Topic: besides I have not Move, I can not use v2 PSL1GHT even compile, among other things, because compilers do not support my IF Mode Pointer and is already a pain without having to play more, and to have to settle a new library on the old woman ends up not being consistent. Perhaps we should look at that bear Iris V2, but first would have to have compilers and toolchain oopo as we know it (you throw two hours compiling something to the end, leave a mistake that you do not know where it comes. That at least since Windows [+ laughs])
  • Thread Dump PSX disc: in psx.c is a very nice routine called read_raw_sector () to read entire sectors. Maybe someone interested as used

Iris Manager Tutorial by LoboGuara

Things you need:

  • The latest Iris Manager release (Actually, 1.54): [Register or Login to view links]
  • TrueAncestor SELF resigner (only for the required files): [Register or Login to view links]
  • A file manager (i.e. multiMAN , Comgenie Awesome FileManager) OR a working PC-PS3 ftp connection

Install the Iris PKG on your PS3 (The pkg is inside the rar file: irismanager-4-x.pkg)

1. Extract the Iris Manager rar file on your PC
2. Inside the Iris uncompressed folder, you will see a file named patch_ps1emu.rar. Extract this file
3. Extract TrueAncestor SELF resigner and copy the contents of the DATA folder (ldr_curves, vsh_curves, keys) to the patch_ps1emu DATA folder.
4. Copy the file /dev_flash/ps1emu/ps1_emu.self (using FTP or a file Manager) and put this file into the patch_ps1emu extracted folder
5. Run patch_ps1emu.bat with Administrator privileges
6. Copy the generated ps1_emu_patched2.self to the IRIS MANAGER folder on PS3 (usually /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4)

Example: /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4/ ps1_emu_patched2.self

Preparing your PSX ISOS:

On your EXTERNAL USB device, create a folder called “PSXISOS”

/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/

Inside the PSXGAMES folder, create a foder with the game name

Example: /dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/CrashBandicoot/

Inside the game folder, put your ISO/BIN/IMG and Optionally, a JPG image named “Cover.jpg” (to get the cover showing on Iris Manager game list),

The Directory structure should be like this: /dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/CrashBandicoot/CrashBandicoot.iso

If the game has multiple disks, put the other disk images in the same folder respecting the filename of the first disc. Example

/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/FinalFantasy9/ FF9_disc1.ISO
/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/FinalFantasy9/ FF9_disc2.ISO
/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/FinalFantasy9/ FF9_disc3.ISO
/dev_usb000/PSXGAMES/FinalFantasy9/ FF9_disc4.ISO

The Cover image must not exceed 10241024 in size. Done. Your PSX games will now apperar on Iris Game list

Note: there is a pkg containing the patched ps1_emu_patched2.self , you can download it HERE if you are having problems patching your own file. Im not recommending using it, since i have not tested this pkg myself.

Example of the correct folder structure using Iris Manager:

PS3 GAMES:

Iris Manager will search for your PS3 games on /dev_usb000/GAMEZ instead of GAMES. If you are a multiMAN user, you can just rename your GAMES folder to GAMEZ. Since multiMAN search for games in both GAMES and GAMEZ folder, you will have no problems.

GAME COVERS:

You can use the same multiMAN “covers” on Iris Manager! Just copy the “covers” folder into the Iris Manager directory

Ex: /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4/covers

Tips: To load the last played game: Hold L1 at Iris Manager startup. Sorting the games by system: Press L2 (PSX) or R2 (PS3). Game config: Select your PSX/PS3 game and press SELECT. General config: Press START

Iris Manager Translations: brunolee provide a nice language pkgs, you can get these translations linked above. Just install the respective .pkg and you are done! Have fun! If you have any doubts/questions, dont hesitate to ask!

Some people use software to convert psx games into eboots for the psp. Would there be anyway to convert those into being compatible with the PS3?

wow ps2 games and PSN access this sound like the best thing in a long time happening to my PS3, I hope PSN solution works for long but guess that would be stupid to wish for any way PS2 games running will be fun.

This upcoming CFW is the most exciting news in a long time. The license generator for PSN games especially caught my attention, one of my PSN games hasn't been functional since 3.41, so perhaps this could take care of it. As for activating the 8th SPU, too bad it won't do any good for games considering they're programmed to use a maximum of 6 so I suppose it'd only be good for homebrew. Would it be possible to disable the hypervisor security that runs on 1 of the SPUs? Having all 8 SPUs available for the lulz would be nice.
