Hmm, I tried the Multiman method, installed both the PS2 Classics Placeholder package (17MB, shows PS2 placeholder app on XMB and installs game\PSU10000 folder) and the PS2 Classics Placeholder R2 package (153kb). Then I created a folder for one of my working rips (PS2ISO\[SLUS-20069] The Bouncer), and ftped the ISO.BIN.ENC over to here.

The Bouncer shows up in Multiman, downloads the cover, but when I run it it just goes to XMB. I ftped it to the PS2 Placeholder XMB's folder (game\PSU10000), and it runs fine from XMB. Why not Multiman? Anyone else get this to work? It would be so convenient to load up my rips and play them alongside everything else.

Okay, I've figured it out. The one rip I can't get to work is FF12 International Zodiac Job, because it's already patched with the fan translation pack which must alter something.

Anyway, you only need the PS2 Classics Placeholder R2 package (153kb) and mM 4.30.

1. Install PS2 CPR2 package and update mM to 430.
2. Whichever method you prefer (via ftp client or mM file manager), on the PS3 create subfolders for each PS2 ISO. Name them [gameid] gamename, ie. PS2ISO\[SLUS-20069] The Bouncer.
3. Using PS2ClassicsGUI (I used 1.4), place your 2P0001-PS2U10000_00-0000111122223333.rap (or whicever RAP you use to encrypt ISO) file into\scetool\raps.
4. In PS2ClassicsGUI, hit the Encrypt tab, open your iso rip with the black folder icon, and copy/paste or type the name of the RAP into the Content ID field (ie. 2P0001-PS2U10000_00-0000111122223333). The Klicensee field should automatically populate with the hex code pulled from the RAP you copied in the aforementioned raps folder. In this example, for the generic PS2 placeholder example, the klicensee code is E4E54FD67C16C316F47829A30484D843.
5. Click the Add LIMG Sector button (if available), say yes, then the bottom Encrypt button, say yes.
6. The newly generated ISO.BIN.ENC will be in the\ folder. Take that and copy/FTP it over to your PS3 into the PS2ISO folder you created (example PS2ISO\[SLUS-20069] The Bouncer\ISO.BIN.ENC).
7. In mM, under the Retro column, hit Refresh. If you named your folder's game id correctly, mM will pull the cover automatically. The title will be exactly waht you named the folder, minus the game id part.
8. Hit x to run the game. mM will exit to XMB. (This is the part that confused me initially until I recognized the behavior)
9. Go to the PS2 Classics Placeholder icon, and hit x to start. Your game should load after a bit and a couple of resolution changes.
10. Play! No package creation required.

So basically, it's as easy as create your ISO.BIN.ENC and the corresponding game folder on the PS3, then copy the file over appropriately and enjoy. Hope this helps anyone else having issues. mM will pull the artwork and create the SAVEDATA files for you. Big thanks to CaptainCPS-X and of course DeanK for mM, and no thanks to Sony for removing PS2 emulation!

Playing Final Fantasy X International (JP) for the first time as I type this. Thanks again guys!

Does this allow us to play any PS2 game on our PS3?

What game files did you use as a base to roll your package? This might help others who are having issues.

Today PlayStation 3 developer deank has released multiMAN v04.30.00 which now includes support for loading PS2 Classics among the changes outlined below.

MultiMAN v04.30.00 Changelog:

  • Added support for various 4.40CFWs
  • Added support for loading PS2 Classics (from /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO) (thanks flatz & ing.pereira)

multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE (20130324) Includes:

  • multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE CEX (20130324).pkg
  • multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE DEX (20130324).pkg
  • multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE STEALTH (20130324).zip
  • Showtime 04.03.100 [CEX].pkg
  • Showtime 04.03.100 [DEX].pkg

Also available online and in the WEB column for those who want to test PS2 Classics. What I added to mM is just a simple function to link the iso.bin.enc files to the placeholder app. Whatever it requires is not changed. I don't have any ps2 classics to test anything. mM already has a PS1+PS2 database of almost 4000 covers (already available in the FULL version and online), hence few lines to link the encrypted isos to the placeholders. The haters are barking at the wrong tree.

You need PS2 Classics Placeholder R2 (PS2_Classics_Placeholder_R2.rar by CaptainCPS-X) installed and your ps2 classics in /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO as subfolders. It is also available for download in mM's WEB column.

If you don't have memory-cards, mM will create them for you under SAVEDATA subfolder in the game folder.

Use the following structure format:

/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game (simple naming format - no cover download)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/ISO.BIN.ENC
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/COVER.JPG (not mandatory, but if present will have higher priority than downloaded covers)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC0.VME (mM will create it if missing)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC1.VME (mM will create it if missing)

or even better, the recommended format:

/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003 (mM will use the gameID and will download the cover if available)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/ISO.BIN.ENC
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/COVER.JPG (not mandatory, but if present will have higher priority than downloaded cover)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC0.VME (mM will create it if missing)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC1.VME (mM will create it if missing)

Basically you only need the ISO.BIN.ENC and nothing else:


and mM will show "MyPS2Classic" disc icon in the RETRO column. If you name your folder with the game-id, mM will download the cover. If you put "COVER.JPG" next to the iso, mM will use it instead. That's it.
