Only problem I have atm, is that PAL titles have a few problems (probably because the emulator from Hot Shots is made for NTSC games and not PAL games - once a PAL version is out, we should be good to go for PAL PS1 games), and all my PS1 games are PAL lol.
So far i've tried the US version of Final Fantasy 7 and it is 100% perfect. But your right that the PAL versions do have some minor graphics problems but most of my games are US versions anyway so no worries for me. I can't believe how quick its been for Sony's official emulator to be cracked but i'm certainly not complaining.
How does Point Blank & Time Crisis run on this :lol:
GT2 was running perfect.... except for the fact i used my pal rip and couldnt get the Y fixer working...
This is unbelievable.
I am now running FF7 full speed on my PSP.
I have died and gone to heaven.
Final Fantasy IX , Silent Hill, Legend of the Dragoon, Castlevania S.O.T.N, Vagarant story, Gran Turismo : - all working full speed here, and seem to look and sound better than they ever did on the old PSX
This is the greatest thing to happen to handheld gaming !
I am actually suprised at how nice FF7 looks. On the TV it was starting to look a little dated, but it looks gorgeous on the PSP's screen, even in stretched full screen mode.
How hard is this thing to use/install? Terrified of bricking my machine!
What firmware do I need to get this working ?.
I am going to buy a brand new PSP this week, will I be stuffed ??
If you have a 1.5 machine, its a complete doddle and I have heard the chance of bricking it is tinny.
This really is the ultimate firmware right now, enabling the later firmwares features, but with full homebrew capabilities!
It's easy to install assuming that you have the correct firmware for your psp. You need 1.5 firmware or your PSP needs to have 2.71 or lower so that you can downgrade to 1.5. Heres a link with a guide and the relevant files.
If your going to buy a PSP from a shop then you need firmware 2.71 or lower and you need to make sure it doesn't have the TA-082 motherboard. It would be easier though to buy a PSP from ebay that allready has 1.5 firmware unless the shop you buy from is happy for you to check their stock to see if they have a suitable PSP.
This is great - I've always wanted to play FFVII and now I can do so on the move Great stuff.
BTW - If anyone misses the old 333/166 overclocking mode then fear not for you can use CWCheat to do so in the new 3.02 OE-B. Download here.
I'm having problems getting this to work. I've put the files in the relevant place and i have enabled the plugin but i can't see anyway of using this when i start my PSP?
sHOULD SHOw up under Game > Memory Stick
Press and hold down Select for 3 seconds ingame to bring up the cheats menu. Also make sure you have the \DH folder as well as the \SEPLUGINS one otherwise it will not save the config options.
Here's another version of the plug which allows cheatcodes to work with PSX games:
Install it alongside the other PRX and enable it - They both run side by side.
The "Save Anywhere" cheat code for FFVII is a godsend - Finally random battles have become bearable.
BTW - Does anyone have the stripped BASE.PBP files (about 1.5 MB) for making your own PSX ISOs handy? I appear to have lost my copy.
I have one corrupt file so i guess its that but i've got it working now though.
Did all the flashing to mine earlier today and got an NTSC rip of GT2 (my PAL copy didn't come out too well), works perfectly! . I only wish I could get the dual analogue on PSP.
Got this to work. It plays brilliantly even better than PS1 games play on the PS3 lol.
I've got loads of old PS1 games (originals). What's the process for ripping these to get them working on the PSP?
Is these any way to use ISO compression with 3.02 OE-B (for PSP games, I know you can't with PS1), or is this something that may be in the imminent 3.03 OE-A ?
No you can't compress the iso. If you look at my first post and use the link then you can download the relevant files as you need the popstation program to convert the iso. You will also need Hotshots Golf 2 but if you use the readme file that comes with the download you will have all the info you need.
Isn't Popstation just for PS1 games tho? They're quite small anyway, it's the 1.5gb PSP games I'd like to compress if possible.
Sorry i mis-read your post i thought you were asking about PS1 games.
Yes you can compress PSP iso's. I can't remeber the name of the one i use but when i get home from work i'll post a link for it.
This is what i have been using.
Do I compress the file and then put the DAX/CSO files in the ISO directory on 2.71 SE-C / 3.02 OE-B and run as normal?
Assuming both work, have you been using DAX or CSO?
Yes i have my games in the ISO directory on the root of the memory card and i have been using CSO files. You may have to play around with the compression though for some games other wise they they won't always run smoothly. Games like Streetfighter Alpha 3 and Virtua Tennis seem fine when fully compressed but Outrun seems to stutter at times and there are a few games such as GTA which apparantly don't work when compressed.
google - maxconsole ripkits - theyll shrink the game as small as they can go without breaking.
both GTA's work fine compressed
