March 28, 2013 // 7:04 pm - Following up on my PS2Classics Guide on Converting ISOs to XMB PS2 Games guide, today I (Spewfr) have released a PS2 ISO to XMB Conversion Command-Line GUI v1.0 Beta for PS3 users complete with source code.

Download: PS2iso2pkg.rar (3 MB) / PS2iso2pkg.rar (Mirror)

I recently decided to start converting my PS2 ISO's for use with the PS3 system; here you have a Command-Line GUI that I think is simple to use.

NOTE THAT THIS TOOL uses the same RAP key for every game it processes (the same one that PS2Classics GUI uses, so credit to them for all of the hard work over at ps3dev-network)

If enough positive feedback is given to this project, I will continue to enable BIN formats and add other changes...

What this program will do:

  • Create a PKG and RAP for your ISO
  • Pros: Can launch the game from XMB at any point
  • No multi-man required
  • Cons: Requires disc space (but you can use a game data switcher)
  • Requires installation of multiple RAP's


1. Place your icons files inside of the Images folder
2. Run PS2iso2pkg.exe
3. Enter the PS2 Game ID
4. Enter the PS2 Game Title
5. Follow the On-Screen Instrucions
6. WAIT until all [9] processes have completed
7. COPY the "exdata" and "packages" folder to an external HDD
8. Install the PKG entitled with your Game ID
9. Install and run reActPSN (included in packages folder)
10 You're all good!

Source is included in src, Please leave a comment explaining any problems you face (I hope none )

I found a solution. What I had to is after I put the .psu save on to the .ps2 memory card, I then drag the .ps2 file to a update_vmc_hashes.exe I found online so that it updates the file hashes. Then I change the extension from .ps2 to .vmc and encrypt the file to .vme. It worked!

I've followed all the directions and I keep getting the "save game is corrupted error code" (0x80028f24). What I've been trying to do is have my PS2 game saves of GTA LCS and VCS onto the PS2 classics versions of those games on my PS3.

The only thing I did differently was getting the PS2 saves out of the memory card via Codebreaker and converting the .cbs files to .max and the converting the .max files to .psu

Yeah, I know but I do not have Windows 7 or 8 at all so I cannot install Windows.

I wish to test it but I can't. I am on MAC OS X. I tried it with wineskin and wineskin worked with emulators I used but it doesn't work with this program. I run it with wineskin and nothing happened.

Maybe it didn't work with wineskin because of Command-Line GUI.
