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

1150°
55w 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: PS2iso2pkg.rar (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

 

Videos: PS3 RetroXMB: Boot RetroArch ROMs from PS3 XMB Preview

1000°
56w ago - Following up on the previous updates, today STLcardsWS has shared a preview of RetroXMB which allows users to boot RetroArch ROMs from the PS3 XMB alongside some videos of it in action from UnknownArchive below.

To quote: This hack is very interesting, as it will allow for direct booting of RetroArch playable ROMs from the XMB. Personally I like when i can access more things via the XMB. That's why it's there! So this developer who wishes to be nameless at this time has created a hack/mod from the awesome RetroArch.

This works much like the recently released PS1ToPS3 GUI (for PSOne games XMB direct booting) that was recently released. You will have a PC app that will create the PKG that will also add all required files in order to run. So it is not even required to have the official RetroArch installed However this is not for someone who wants to put a full ROMset on the XMB.

I did however manage to get over 250 roms PKGs installed with no slow down or issues. To see this process of direct booting of a Retro Rom please take a look at the videos below...
