Tutorial: How to build your own PS2Classic PKG for PS4!

Step 1

-Get your hands on a PS2 game iso.

-Get your hands on the "Fake_PKG_Generator tool" .

-Download this modified .dll for rebuilding ps2 classics of the "Fake_PKG_Generator tool" ! (thnx to @DarkElementPL for providing!)

-Download this PS2 Classic template! (thnx to @wildcard for sharing!) 

 

Step 2

-Replace the original .dll by this modified one!

Step 3

Step 4

-Now go to the folder PS2 Classic Template -> sce_sys

-Replace icon0.png & pic1.png by your own pictures. Sizo of icon0.png is 1920x1080 & pic1.png is 512x512

(icon0.png will be image you'll see when you boot your game & pic1.png will be the image displayed on the PS4 UI.) 

 

-Edit param.sfo with a hex editor. 

 

-go to line 0x30 & edit the title ID CUSA21XX to a random number (example: CUSA2199)

-go to line 0x65 & make that the content ID matches with line 0x30!

-Now edit line 0x5D to the name of your ps2 game.

Step 5

-Now build a PKG of it the same way we did in This tutorial.

The content ID you'll find here! (not in the "orbis-pub-sfo.exe")!!

(Note: build with the same tools but with the modified DLL!!!)

 

Warning!: When building multiple PS2 Classic PKG's make sure the Title ID's (CUSA021XX) are different each time! Otherwise the PS4 will think you have the same game and will install it over the other game!

 

 

Step 6

-When built install the same way we did in this tutorial!

 

 

Additional info!

Not all games will work, you can add the games you try to the wiki and tell if they work or not.

Hi is it possible to change the default Language of an Iso? In  PCSX2 the same Iso is playable in German Language ( Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King) Any help? THX!

Great tutorial @Thibobo!

 

I noticed a typo(disc0.1.iso) on the renaming of the iso to  disc01.iso but you have the image in there so shouldnt be an issue if people also use the visual reference you supplied.

 

Only thing you may want to edit will be the naming convention as icon0.png should be 512x512 and is the image you see on PS4UI with the 1920x1080 pic1.png file being the image you see at the game start up. :)

Anyone that wants to use their own png files should note that they need to use 24 bit color depth(RGB) as you'll error out during the build process with a 32 bit depth(RGBA) color scheme. - I use something like pixelformer to do my image conversions. import /drag a jpeg off the net, convert to desired pixel count and click color depth then export to my ps2 folder. as a png file. - 10 second task, if that!
