Memory Card Converter v2.0 for PS2Classics PS3 Command-Line GUI


Sponsored Links
95w ago - Following up on my PS2 ISO to XMB Conversion Command-Line GUI v1.0 Beta for PS3, today I present Memory Card Converter v2.0 for PS2Classics PS3 Command-Line GUI.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (5 MB) / MemCardConv_v2.rar (Mirror)

This new Command-Line GUI tools converts your old PS2 savegames to a readable format for the PS3 system.

Re-requisite:

  • Run your PS2Classic at least once.
  • Exit to the XMB, and go to "Save Data Utility (PS2)"
  • Copy your PS2Classic Game's Savedata to your external drive

Follow the steps below to Convert your old savegame files, and then overwrite this one.

1. Export your old PS2 saves from your PS2 Memory Stick to your computer, using either

A. Sony's memory Card Adapter (Requires PSV exporter)
B. uLaunchElf; Tutorial included below.

I recommend just copying your entire library of saves to an external drive

2. Run SaveBuild - *Note - you may have to open PS2save-builder manually with admin rights; it is located in "tools".
3. Click "Edit > Add File", and browse to the folder of your savegame. It will look something like "mc0:/BASLUS-21490"
4. Import every file from that directory into the tool. (i.e. BASLUS-21490/icon.sys , BASLUS-21490/config , etc)
5. Now edit the Root/ID field to match the name of the folder (i.e. Root/ID = BASLUS-21490)
6. Go to "File > Save as..." and select "Save as file type: X-port2 (*.xps)" and save the file as your Root/ID (i.e. BASLUS-21490.xps) The program will ask you to save the file inside of your savegame folder, save it somewhere like your desktop)
7. Run MyMC
8. When the program starts, it will ask you to open a .PS2 file; select "SCEVMC0.PS2" (I have included one with the tools.)

BE AWARE THAT THIS TOOL UPDATES THE MEMORY CARD WITH REAL-TIME AND SAVES CANNOT BE REMOVED!

9. Click "File > Import..." and select the .XPS you just created.
10. Run PS2toVME ; Make sure the new SCEVMC0.PS2 is in the same folder. (the .PS2 will be cleaned automatically every time PS2toVME closes)
11. Copy the New VME in the VME folder to your external drive (external drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2UXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME)
12. On your PS3, plug in your external drive and go to the Game portion of the XMB, and select "Saved data Utility (PS2)"
13. Select your external drive and copy over the new savegame
14. You're good to go, load up your game

ulaunchElf Copy Savgame Guide

1. Load uLaunchELF on your PS2, browse to your USB flash (under mc0:/ or mc1:/ ).
2. Locate the folder that contains your savegame, then press R1 and select "Copy" to copy the entire folder (it should contain files like icon.sys , config , etc)
3. Browse to your external drive ( mass:/ )
4. press R1 again and select "mcPaste" to paste the entire folder onto your external drive (do NOT use "Paste", while it works for most games, some games require mPaste)

You're very welcome! Thank you for using my tool I'm glad you finally got it working!

I looked at your images that you took, and you created an internal memory card; the game itself should not have created this card.
It would have made card inside of the ps2 save data utility; using the internal memor cards is useless.

in the first try it came out black screen, but in the second just one game ran perfectly, i don't know if the method i use to copy it to the ps3 has to do with this. The game that it works was installed by usb fat32, but the other have more than +4GB and it was installed it with a NTSF HDD via multiman 4.18. I'm in Rogero 4.30 v2.05. Thanks to the scene and spewrf, is awesome.

Following up on my Memory Card Converter v2.0 and Memory Card Converter v3.0 for PS3, today I present Memory Card Converter v3.5 for PS2Classics PS3 Command-Line GUI.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (6 MB) / MemCardConv_v3.5.rar (Mirror)

Fixes the major "Invalid" error, now most saves should work, except those with time stamp issues...

Let's get started.

COPY YOUR ORIGINAL SAVEDATA FROM THE PS3 -
1. Convert your game with PS2iso2pkg; REMEMBER THE GAME ID. That's how you find it on your storage media (PS2UXXXXX).
2. Under "Game", navigate to "Saved Data Utility (PS2)," and delete the savedata for your PS2 game.
3. Load your converted PS2Classic at least once on your PS3, then quit when you see the PlayStation 2 logo.

DO NOT SAVE ANY DATA TO THE "MEMORY STICK" WHILE IN-GAME, THIS IS CRUCIAL.

4. Quit back to the XMB. You should have received no errors.
5. Under "Game", navigate to "Saved Data Utility (PS2)," then scroll to your PS2 savegame data.
6. Press triangle on your savedata, and select "Copy."
7. Insert your storage media (i.e. a thumb-drive), and copy the data to it. Overwrite if necessary.

CONVERT YOUR NEW SAVEDATA FROM YOUR OLD PS2 -

1. Connect your storage media to your computer. Navigate to drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2U[Game ID]
2. Copy SCEVMC0.VME to the "orig_VME" folder of the GUI tool.

3. Run VMEconv.exe
Click the Decrypt tab
Select Decrypt VME, and select your VME in orig_VME
Save as SCEVMC0.PS2 in the PS2 folder.

4. Run SaveBuild.exe - Note - you may have to open PS2save-builder manually with admin rights; it is located in "tools"
Click "Edit > Add File", and browse to the folder of your savegame.
It will look something like "mc0:/BASLUS-21490"
Import every file from that directory into the tool. (i.e. BASLUS-21490/icon.sys , BASLUS-21490/config , etc)

Now edit the Root/ID field to match the name of the folder (i.e. Root/ID = BASLUS-21490)
Go to "File > Save as..." and select "Save as file type: X-port2 (*.xps)" and save the file as your Root/ID (i.e. BASLUS-21490.xps)
(The program will ask you to save the file inside of your savegame folder, save it somewhere like your desktop)

OPTIONAL:
You can just export your PS2 savegames from uLaunchElf into a PSV container, which allows for timestamp verification saves

5. Run X2Pconv.exe
Select "Open", and find your XPS that you saved in step 4
Click "Save" and save it as a .PSU

6. Run MyMC.exe
When the program starts, it will ask you to open a .PS2 file; Navigate to and select MemCardConv/PS2/SCEVMC0.PS2
Click "File > Import..." and select the .PSU you created in set 5

7. Rename your PS2
Inside of the PS2 folder, rename SCEVMC0.PS2 to SCEVMC0.VMC

8. Run VMEconv.exe
Click the Encrypt tab
Select Encrypt VMC, and select your VMC in PS2
Save as SCEVMC0.VME in new_VME

COPY YOUR NEW SAVEDATA TO THE PS3 -

1. Copy the New VME in the new_VME folder to your external drive (external drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2UXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME)
2. On your PS3, plug in your external drive and go to the Game portion of the XMB, and select "Saved data Utility (PS2)"
3. Select your external drive and copy over the new savegame
4. You're good to go, load up your game good luck

Woo. Only took 6 hours

For the next half-hour or so, I will be trying to convert saves manually. The bug will *most likely* be found before 6am EST. Til' then, good luck.

UPDATE -The problem has been fixed... read on.

As I had earlier suspected, the GUI is very necessary for encrypting/decrypting VMC files... Why this is, I have no clue. It's very annoying I also converted the XPS to a PSU with the PS2save converter (ps2savetools.com).

I'll just release a new version of the tool. I just loaded up the game without the black screen error; but I think the savegame may be encrypted with some shiz, so I can't completely "load" it.

Maybe it's corrupt from copying it over from my old PS2, so I'll find a regionally-correct save from online. As always, thank you for using my tools!!

UPDATE -I successfully loaded a 100% savegame for Cars.

You must convert your XPS to a PSU
You must use the original GUI by Aldos and ps3dev-net

As to the corrupted save for the Cars game, I think that the "Preserved" attribute (0x0080) must be a result of improper copying from uLanchElf; MAKE SURE YOU USE mPaste... I will be releasing v3.5 shortly.

Version 3.5 is almost out, with some major cleanup; I found the errors.

Happy Easter

Virtual Memcard Converter v3

This is a basic fix to my last version, although some saves still do NOT work. Disney-Pixar's cars, for example, still gives me an error on start-up that the saved data is being stupid lol. If anybody finds a new method, PLEASE PM me and inform me of what's going wrong

Let's get started.

COPY YOUR ORIGINAL SAVEDATA FROM THE PS3 -
1. Convert your game with PS2iso2pkg; REMEMBER THE GAME ID. It is absolutely necessary.
2. Under "Game", navigate to "Saved Data Utility (PS2)," and delete the savedata for your PS2 game.
3. Load your converted PS2Classic at least once on your PS3.

DO NOT SAVE ANY DATA TO THE "MEMORY STICK" WHILE IN-GAME, THIS IS CRUCIAL.

4. Quit back to the XMB. You should have received no errors.
5. Under "Game", navigate to "Saved Data Utility (PS2)," then scroll to your PS2 savegame data.
6. Press triangle on your savedata, and select "Copy."
7. Insert your storage media (i.e. a thumb-drive), and copy the data to it. Overwrite if necessary.

CONVERT YOUR NEW SAVEDATA FROM YOUR OLD PS2 -
1. Connect your storage media to your computer. Navigate to drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2U[Game ID]
2. Copy SCEVMC0.VME to the "orig_VME" folder of the GUI tool.

3. Run VMEtoPS2.exe
The tool will decrypt the file in the orig_VME folder;
It will save it in the PS2 folder.

4. Run SaveBuild.exe Note - you may have to open PS2save-builder manually with admin rights; it is located in "tools"
Click "Edit > Add File", and browse to the folder of your savegame.
It will look something like "mc0:/BASLUS-21490"
Import every file from that directory into the tool. (i.e. BASLUS-21490/icon.sys , BASLUS-21490/config , etc)
Now edit the Root/ID field to match the name of the folder (i.e. Root/ID = BASLUS-21490)
Go to "File > Save as..." and select "Save as file type: X-port2 (*.xps)" and save the file as your Root/ID (i.e. BASLUS-21490.xps)
(The program will ask you to save the file inside of your savegame folder, save it somewhere like your desktop)

5. Run MyMC.exe
When the program starts, it will ask you to open a .PS2 file; Navigate to and select MemCardConv/PS2/SCEVMC0.PS2
Click "File > Import..." and select the .XPS you created in set 4.

BE AWARE THAT THIS TOOL UPDATES THE MEMORY CARD WITH REAL-TIME; AND SAVES CANNOT BE REMOVED!

6. Run PS2toVME.exe
The tool will encrypt the file in the PS2 folder;
it wil save it in new_VME.

COPY YOUR NEW SAVEDATA TO THE PS3 -
1. Copy the New VME in the VME folder to your external drive (external drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2UXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME)

2. On your PS3, plug in your external drive and go to the Game portion of the XMB, and select "Saved data Utility (PS2)"
3. Select your external drive and copy over the new savegame
4. You're good to go, load up your game & hope you don't get the error \(0n0)/
