112w ago - Following up on my previous revision, after receiving so many problematic issues I (Spewfr) decided to discontinue the old setup and start a new pack of tools dubbed PS2Classics Virtual Memory Card Tools v4 Final for PS3.

Download: MemCardConvTools_v4.rar (5 MB) / MemCardConvTools_v4.rar (Mirror)

Note: The PS3 will only read PS2SD/XXXXXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME & SCEVMC1.VME.

VME = encrypted
PS2 and VMC = decrypted

PS2Classics Virtual Memory Card Tools & Guide

This tool pack allows users to compile new savegame VME's without the hassle of using the Command-Line GUI. Just download the tool pack and follow the instructions given below.

1. Get your PS2 unedited savegame from your PS3

Run your PS2classics SUCCESSFULLY at least once.
On your PS3, go to "Saved data Utility (PS2)", NOT INTERNAL MEMORY CARDS.
Select your PS2Classics game, and copy it to your USB drive.

2. Obtaining your PS2 savegames

With your memory card and external USB drive inserted into your PS2, run uLaunchELF v4.11
Navigate to mc0:/ or mc1 (mc0 = 1st slot, mc1 = 2nd slot)
Within that directory, there should lots of folders, for example BASLUS-12345++.

To copy all savegames to an external drive, press [SQUARE]. All of the folders in the memory card should now have white dots on them.
Press [R1] and select "Copy".
Now go up a folder and navigate to mass:/ (go into it).
Press [R1] and select "psuPaste".

All of the savegames should now be copied into your external USB drive as PSU's.

3. Converting your PS2 Savegames

Run MyMC, included in the tools.
Select a .PS2 Memory Card Image (included in the tools, fresh ones can be downloaded below)
Remember where this .PS2 image is.

Now click "File > Import..." and select the PSU that matches your PS2Classics game. (i.e. if your PS2Classics game id = PS2U23456, then your PSU equivalent may be BASLUS-23456XXXX.psu)
With the PSU imported, close the MyMC and find your .PS2 image.
Rename the .PS2 to .VMC

Open up PS2Classics GUI and click on the Encrypt tab.
Then select "Encrypt VMC". Select the .VMC/.PS2 image that you just edited/renamed.
Save the .VME that it makes in a place you will remember.

4. Importing your new Savegames onto your USB and PS3

Find the .VME that your just encrypted.
Copy it on your USB drive in this format, with the X's replacing your PS2Classics game ID.
(Overwrite the file, as there should be a VME in there already from Step 1. If no .VME is present, then do step 1 again)
mass:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2UXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME

With the VME copied in that format, plug your USB into your PS3.
Go to "Saved data Utility (PS2)"
Then inside of that, go to your USB drive and copy over the new savegame.
Overwrite the files, it should ask you to do that.

Enjoy your converted PS2 savegames

Finally, from xXRagnarokXx: Hey Guys, this is for noob tutorial and it works 100% no bug on the mmc.

It will work on Slim consoles, yes.

ICON0.PNG and PIC1.PNG go in Images.

I'm sorry I haven't been update on the progress of ps2ios stuff on ps3... noob question... does all the exciting PS2ISO stuff that is happening recently will allow slim PS3 (CECH2001A 16MB NOR) to play PS2 games? Or it is still just for FAT ps3?

For the images folder, you put your images like ICON0.PNG and PIC0.PNG. You must save them as their proper size and bit size, as you can see here:

ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Content_Information_Files#HDD_Game
ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Content_Information_Files#PNG

And Blade86, I do understand thet the GUI by Aldo's uses the Title ID's via the GUI.

However, I do not fully understand how to go into files with CMD and search for strings of data, and then use them in CMD. If you would like to compile a batch script showing how to do so, I would be more than happy to include you and your script in the next release

All ISO's work, it's just a matter of if the PS3's emulator will play the game correctly or not... They will all load, you just might no be able o play them lol

Great work dude! If I understood it right, you dont need ps2-classic-gui from aldostools anymore. If so, you could ask him, how his gui detects the ps2-game-id.

Together with deank's database you can get the game-name and images. Implementing this would take out step 1, 3 and 4

Cheers
Blade

This is just like the lastgame-customizing for ps3-games

Explain your problem, or take a screenie.

Check the source code, it will tell you exactly what every step is doing...

To quote from the tool's on-screen instructions: (read the readme...)

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

I really should change those numbers... lol
