Now it doesn't need root key to vmc stuff and now vmc decryption and encryption is working great, added ISO9660 checks and LIMG check and creation. Thanks to flatz, aldo and many others.

To quote, roughly translated: Good friends here I leave the last revision PS2Classic with the new changes and additions by me with the help of Flatz and aldo.

PS2Classic Final Changelog:

  • ISO9660 Check
  • LIMG Support (Check / Creation)
  • VMC Decryption / Encryption fixed with the help of flatz by making new py script to rehash stuff so i can port it and now without. the need to use a root key to encrypt or decrypt your vmc's, thanks to aldo too by helping me in the process.
  • Now you see the progress being maded by decryption or encryption, so is more easy to wait.

It will rehash every change in the blocks and now it should work. About encrypting and decrypting ISO.BIN.ENC or CONFIG nothing changes about user commands because all the change was internal, so is the same.

If you don't want to use this cmd version is better to wait to the new version of Aldo Gui tool because it will have this added and some better gui improvements. Thanks to flatz, aldo and many others helping in the process.

Here also included something for those who want to modify or ripearlas isos more easily and are functional in the PS3. The process is very easy and simple using Expert 1.3 since the 2.0 version tends to have flaws with these images ISO9660 corrupting and ends.

Ripping or modification of any PS2 game

1. Crack the ps2classic ISO.BIN.ENC with great command line or GUI aldo.
2. Expert Runs 1.03 and continues to work the following order:

  • Extract LBA
  • Extract files (It will extract every file from the game in a folder with the iso name)

Now you can make your changes to the game(But obviusly you cannot just delete stuff because the LBA has an order you need to make some dummy file and rename it to the file you want to delete for example), you can mod everything too if the game have some modding tools for sure like gta sa, vc, etc.

  • Rebuild files (Now it will make a ISO with the game folder extracted previusly modified)
  • Rebuild LBA

3. Just encrypt that Game ISO modified with new tools like this new ps2classic command line tool or with new Aldo gui Ps2classic tool with new changes (Because this tools will now remake the LIMG section too). Now use the new ISO.BIN.ENC on the PS3 and check your changes.

Greetings

From CrUmp comes a PS2 ISO Renaming Tool called PS3CTool v1 (linked above) for PS2Classic v 1.0 with details below, as follows:

I only test with my mac. if you install python 2.7 on windows this should work too. i don't know if it's ok to put key file in this, so I didn't include it. put your ps2.key file in the same location, and include this folder in your $PATH like:

PS2 ISO Renaming Tool for PS2classic v 1.0 - PS3Classic: To encrypt PS2 ISO to PS2Classic image.

The best way to play your PS2 games on your PS3 console is to convert them into PS2 Classic Games. With Multiman and PS2Classic container, you can have unlimited PS2ISOs loaded into your PS3. With [gameID] Game Title naming convention, Multiman will download the game cover if avaliable.

This tool finds gameID from within PS2ISO, and compare with online database to rename the ISO file names

This script works with ps2classic command line tool to make it more convenience to convert mass ISOs.

To rename ISO file with sonyindex.com database entry, in '[DISCID] FILENAME' format

ALL: in a folder to process every ISO under that folder, including subfolders. It will move ISO files to current folder, and re-name iso filenames against the database entries.

Finally, from u$er comes some proper PS2Classic Tool binaries (linked above) who states the following:

Hey there, i've compiled a set of PS2Classic binaries for you based on the latest changes. if you don't like using cmd-line apps, you can replace the one in PS2Classic GUI with this one.

27 - 12 - 2014 - Cobra ODE News - Update

We hope all our loyal supporters and users had a Merry Christmas!

We are happy to present Cobra 2.3 fw which adds DMC support across all version of Cobra ODE.

Installation instructions will follow over the next few days.

Download: Cobra_ODE_Firmware_v2.3.rar

In addition we are releasing a new accessory for 4.30A, 5.10B and 5.30A users. Instead of using the external clip on pcb to connect a USB storage device, you can now solder the Emu USB QSB to the second port of your PS3, which allows you to use your second USB port to connect USB storage for Cobra ODE.

If the USB storage is not present at boot of PS3, the port can be used for PS3 controller or normal XMB usb access. Check out the pictures below of the Emu USB QSB:

s3nint3!
Also below is multiMAN ver 04.66.08 BASE CEX (20150104) PKG from deank with the following changes:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.66.08 BASE CEX (20150104).pkg (39.82 MB) / Showtime 04.09.021 [CEX].pkg (7.50 MB) / Latest multiMAN Cover Packs by ZOMBIEKILLAH

Also available online (and from the WEB column).

Changes:

  • Fixed issues when using more than one external USB HDD on Cobra CFWs (4.46-4.66+)
  • Fixed issues with homebrew locks/blackscreen/invalid-discs and other weird errors (CFW 4.65CEX/DEX and 4.66CEX)
  • Removed habib's patches and added two different ones to improve compatibility
  • JB games from FAT32 USB HDDs will be mounted as /dev_usb (and not as /dev_usb***) - this issue appeared in CFW 4.20. /dev_usb is always the first usb hdd which the ps3 manages to mount. When it happens that your game is not on the first/fastest usb hdd it caused problems. "Reset USB Bus" was introduced to multiMAN more than a year ago, but it is now added to mmCM, too, without actual reset of the bus.

If you're running pre-patched CFW (4.65/4.66) I suggest that you use a clean one. wM/mM try to restore lv2 to original state, but sometimes it may not be possible.

I already posted about the 1st change, and the second (for now) is to ignore PARAM.SFO and a faulty LIC.DAT processing when launching a homebrew (the PS3 tries to check these files from /dev_bdvd). I don't like this patch, but all the tests I performed are positive and all games worked.

This was all I can do for this weekend. When I find more time I may try to make it more robust and nice, but it will do for now. Please post back with your results.

IMPORTANT: if you are using webMAN and multiMAN/mmCM - UPDATE BOTH to the latest versions and restart your PS3 to start clean.

multiMAN ver 04.66.09 BASE CEX (20150107) PKG:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.66.09 BASE CEX (20150107).pkg (39.82 MB) / MultiMAN.CEX.Full.MEGA.RePacK.04.66.09.Plus.12,216.Covers.v6.8-ZMK.pkg by ZOMBIEKILLAH

multiMAN 04.66.09 is now available, too (online within mM and from the WEB column).

  • Fixed minor issue (mmCM) (regression from 04.66.07)
  • Added prompt to launch multiMAN if mmCM finds itself in non-cobra mode (fixes tiefputin1 issue)




multiMAN ver 04.66.10 BASE CEX (20150110) PKG:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.66.10 BASE CEX (20150110).pkg (39.82 MB) / multiMAN ver 04.66.10 BASE CEX (20150110).pkg (Mirror) / MultiMAN.FULL.12688.PS3.PSN.PS2.PSX.Covers.v7.0.(01.17.2015)-ZMK.pkg / MultiMAN.SMALL.x134.PS3.PSN.Covers.v7.1.Update.(02.01.2015)-ZMK.pkg

Changes in 04.66.09-10:

  • Fixed game covers for split ISO games
  • Fixed game backgrounds for ISO games
  • Fixed few issues introduced in .08
