Hi guys. Here is a new tutorial showing you how to use @TheDarkprogramer's fancy new tool to make your life much easier. He has done well with his documentation thus far so i will be quoting some of if below, please feel free to watch my tutorial, alternatively, if you would rather have a written step by step process, please scroll past the video for the written tut! Video: Written Tut: Step 1: Download the latest version of the tool from here. Step 2: Extract it an click on 'PS4 PS2 Classics GUI'. Step 3: Once Application is open (you might need to allow it to run if MS smart screen comes up) you should then close it, and open it from your desktop, there should be an icon called 'PS4 PS2 Classics GUI'. It will then prompt you for an update if you are connected to the internet. Allow the update. Step 4: Obtain an ISO or Rip one from one of your old PS2 games. (You can use Power ISO for this). Step 5: Find some background images for the PS4 homescreen and for the game icon. Step 6: Once updated, the tool will open the PS2 Classic GUI and you can select your ISO file/s by clicking the box with the 'ISO' next to the "PS2 ISO" Textbox. Step 7: You can either select just 1 iso, or select multiple (i recommend numbering the iso files before selecting them in the tool if you want to order them!) Step 8: If you have multiple iso's. you can change your content ID to whatever you want (Must be in format TTTTNNNNN -- T = Text -- N = Number), Otherwise the app will automatically make it the ps2 game ID if you only select 1 game! Step 9: Make the Title whatever you want Step 10: Right click on the game icon section to change the icon and background images. Step 10b: If you have a custom config file for the game you are packaging up, you can add this by clicking 'File' and then the 'custom config' button. (optional) Step 11: Click the "Create PS2 Classic" button. Step 12: Profit? (you will nee to wait a bit because this can take some time if you have a slow computer. It munches CPU power) The app will play a trophy sound when its done and will open the directory where the pkg was saved to! Step 13: You can now install your PKG file on your PS4 and it should run like a charm, just make sure to check the compatibility list to make sure your game does not have issues. Step 14 (if you made a multi ISO pkg): To swap games on the ps4, once the iso is installed, hold home button, and select the 'Disc' option from the menu that pops up, and you can select your disc to play (O = Enter and X = Back) Got any questions?

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 -Now get into the PS2 Classic template! -Go to image & replace the dummy "disc01.iso" by your ps2 game iso & rename it back to disc01.iso! 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. http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps4/PS2_Classics_Emulator_Compatibility_List
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48REQJobp7s DEMO VIDEO I don't think this is the best idea to load PS2 games on PS3, but at least it seems working nice on my BC console [CECHA01] To be honest, the best way to load PS2 games on PS3 would be loading it from PS3's internal HDD with webMAN, but this should be an alternative solution who doesn't have enough space in PS3's internal HDD because OPL supports external USB HDD [FAT32] as well as SMB [it's similar to Nethost on COBRA CFW] The latest build of OPL is 0.9.3 and it's available here https://bitbucket.org/ifcaro/open-ps2-loader/src And so far I found OPL 0.9.1 version is the best for net loading. [i tried 0.8 ,0.9.2 and 0.9.3 but 0.9.1 seems working the best on my PS3] I wish I could compile this on my own but my ps2 sdk environment seems messed up and I have hard time doing it via minGW. SWAPMAGIC is NOT required to run this unlike 3 years ago, because now we can use COBRA's PS2 ISO functionality and directly load OPL as ISO image. This is the OPL ISO that I built http://www.mediafire.com/download/c92enyqnsn27fft/OPL_091.iso whoever likes to try this on BC or Semi BC consoles, go ahead and give it a shot *NOTE OPL does not work on non-BC console, it does run, but it doesn't load games due to its limitation coming from ps2_netemu itself, the suspect cause is disabled I/O function. however, from what I heard, 3.55 w/ ps2_softemu can run this openloader just fine but so far swapmagic is needed unless you use COBRA CFW that requires DRM dongle for 3.55 or port your own 3.55 COBRA CFW which I'd likely be doing in near future for fun. The system setup for this test run 1. CECHA01 2. REBUG 4.70.1 REX / COBRA mode 3. PS2 Openloader 0.9.1 ISO image 4. Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit / Shared folder named PS2SMB w/ GUEST account that has full control The configuration on OPL
Ok have am having trouble running PS2 backups directly from a disc(DVD+R). I read this gives you the best compatibility with this method. The game specifically is Steambot Chronicles. I am running Habib Cobra 4.75 Starbucks v1.03. I have installed react PSN and PS2Classics. I can get the game to run from internal hard drive when I put the ISO image in devhdd0/PS2ISO and load through the retro tab in Multiman. Once I do this I can either run it through PS2Classics or straight from XMB. The problem is that the game runs slow when I load it this method. So...I want to try disc method to fix this issue since its best for compatibility. I burned the ISO image to DVD+R, load through Multiman, I get kicked back to XMB, then I load the "PS2 Formatted Disc" option in XMB and it just freezes at a black screen. I have to unplug the PS3 to restart it. Can anyone tell me how to run this from Disc successfully?
