PS2 ISO to XMB Conversion Command-Line GUI v1.0 Beta for PS3 Out


Sponsored Links
73w ago - Following up on my PS2Classics Guide on Converting ISOs to XMB PS2 Games guide, today I (Spewfr) have released a PS2 ISO to XMB Conversion Command-Line GUI v1.0 Beta for PS3 users complete with source code.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (3 MB) / PS2iso2pkg.rar (Mirror)

I recently decided to start converting my PS2 ISO's for use with the PS3 system; here you have a Command-Line GUI that I think is simple to use.

NOTE THAT THIS TOOL uses the same RAP key for every game it processes (the same one that PS2Classics GUI uses, so credit to them for all of the hard work over at ps3dev-network)

If enough positive feedback is given to this project, I will continue to enable BIN formats and add other changes...

What this program will do:

  • Create a PKG and RAP for your ISO
  • Pros: Can launch the game from XMB at any point
  • No multi-man required
  • Cons: Requires disc space (but you can use a game data switcher)
  • Requires installation of multiple RAP's

TO USE THIS APPLICATION:

1. Place your icons files inside of the Images folder
2. Run PS2iso2pkg.exe
3. Enter the PS2 Game ID
4. Enter the PS2 Game Title
5. Follow the On-Screen Instrucions
6. WAIT until all [9] processes have completed
7. COPY the "exdata" and "packages" folder to an external HDD
8. Install the PKG entitled with your Game ID
9. Install and run reActPSN (included in packages folder)
10 You're all good!

kriisz Make sure you read the ENTIRE set of instructions, and follow them *exactly*. You have to copy over your original savedata from the PS3 before hand, after you run the game at least once.

Navani that is not an issue with my GUI, that is part of the PS2Classics GUI made by the ps3 devnet. Contact the makers of their GUI and have them resolve the issue for you, sorry I can't do anything As of now, I can hardly get the command-line portion of the classics EXE that they supplied to work... it's very frustrating!

Hello! I'm not a very active user here (I'm just a frequent reader of the site and forums), but I'm having trouble with this tool.

First, let me say thanks for all your work and this is awesome!

I'm trying to create a Kingdom Hearts pkg using this tool. I've followed all the steps and clicked "Add LIMG Sector", but I keep getting this message:

./ps2classic.exe e cex ps2.key /cygdrive/c/Users/Sunny/Desktop/PS2toISO/iso/Kingdom Hearts.iso ISO.BIN.ENC ISO.BIN.ENC 2P0001-PS2U10000_00-0000111122223333

Error: invalid number of arguments for encryption

There is also no ISO.BIN.ENC generated. What should I do?

Thanks again for your contribution !

You must copy it over via the XMB with an external drive, you can't just copy it using multiMan, as I do not know where the PS3 stores/keeps the save files.

Follow the first step. YOU MUST COPY OVER YOUR ORIGINAL SAVEDATA FIRST.

Then, replace the VME on your external with the new one, and copy back to the PS3 VIA THE XMB, NOT MULTIMAN.
