March 31, 2013 // 8:26 am - Following up on my Memory Card Converter v2.0 and Memory Card Converter v3.0 for PS3, today I present Memory Card Converter v3.5 for PS2Classics PS3 Command-Line GUI.

Download: MemCardConv_v3.5.rar (6 MB) / MemCardConv_v3.5.rar (Mirror)

Fixes the major "Invalid" error, now most saves should work, except those with time stamp issues...

Let's get started.

COPY YOUR ORIGINAL SAVEDATA FROM THE PS3 -
1. Convert your game with PS2iso2pkg; REMEMBER THE GAME ID. That's how you find it on your storage media (PS2UXXXXX).
2. Under "Game", navigate to "Saved Data Utility (PS2)," and delete the savedata for your PS2 game.
3. Load your converted PS2Classic at least once on your PS3, then quit when you see the PlayStation 2 logo.

DO NOT SAVE ANY DATA TO THE "MEMORY STICK" WHILE IN-GAME, THIS IS CRUCIAL.

4. Quit back to the XMB. You should have received no errors.
5. Under "Game", navigate to "Saved Data Utility (PS2)," then scroll to your PS2 savegame data.
6. Press triangle on your savedata, and select "Copy."
7. Insert your storage media (i.e. a thumb-drive), and copy the data to it. Overwrite if necessary.

CONVERT YOUR NEW SAVEDATA FROM YOUR OLD PS2 -

1. Connect your storage media to your computer. Navigate to drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2U[Game ID]
2. Copy SCEVMC0.VME to the "orig_VME" folder of the GUI tool.

3. Run VMEconv.exe
Click the Decrypt tab
Select Decrypt VME, and select your VME in orig_VME
Save as SCEVMC0.PS2 in the PS2 folder.

4. Run SaveBuild.exe - Note - you may have to open PS2save-builder manually with admin rights; it is located in "tools"
Click "Edit > Add File", and browse to the folder of your savegame.
It will look something like "mc0:/BASLUS-21490"
Import every file from that directory into the tool. (i.e. BASLUS-21490/icon.sys , BASLUS-21490/config , etc)

Now edit the Root/ID field to match the name of the folder (i.e. Root/ID = BASLUS-21490)
Go to "File > Save as..." and select "Save as file type: X-port2 (*.xps)" and save the file as your Root/ID (i.e. BASLUS-21490.xps)
(The program will ask you to save the file inside of your savegame folder, save it somewhere like your desktop)

OPTIONAL:
You can just export your PS2 savegames from uLaunchElf into a PSV container, which allows for timestamp verification saves

5. Run X2Pconv.exe
Select "Open", and find your XPS that you saved in step 4
Click "Save" and save it as a .PSU

6. Run MyMC.exe
When the program starts, it will ask you to open a .PS2 file; Navigate to and select MemCardConv/PS2/SCEVMC0.PS2
Click "File > Import..." and select the .PSU you created in set 5

7. Rename your PS2
Inside of the PS2 folder, rename SCEVMC0.PS2 to SCEVMC0.VMC

8. Run VMEconv.exe
Click the Encrypt tab
Select Encrypt VMC, and select your VMC in PS2
Save as SCEVMC0.VME in new_VME

COPY YOUR NEW SAVEDATA TO THE PS3 -

1. Copy the New VME in the new_VME folder to your external drive (external drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2UXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME)
2. On your PS3, plug in your external drive and go to the Game portion of the XMB, and select "Saved data Utility (PS2)"
3. Select your external drive and copy over the new savegame
4. You're good to go, load up your game good luck

Woo. Only took 6 hours

okay so i've found the game id. okay now i'm stuck on step 9

[ 8/9 ] CONVERT ISO

This GUI does not yet fully support the ps2classics.exe tool, as some errors occur when not using the GUI.

INSTRUCTIONS TO FINISH CONVERSION -

1. Click on the ENCRYPT tab [Top of the GUI]
2. Select your ISO at the "Decrypted Image" field
5. Select "Add LIMG Sector" [if applicaple]
4. Change the "Content ID" field to as stated below
5. Press "Encrypt"
7. Save as "ISO" in the "tools" folder

Your ID = 2P0001-PS2U214.05_00-0000111122223333

TO COPY THE ABOVE ID -

Right click on this window, select "Mark" from the drop down menu, and select your custom ID stated above; Press enter to copy the selection. Press any key to begin. When you are done, close the GUI.

so what am i to do after it? it says i've got something missing.
