    Default [Tutorial] Converting PSX games for the PSP using Popstation 1.4

    HOW TO CONVERT PSX GAMES FOR THE PSP USING PSX-PSP 1.4.2(POPSTATION FRONTEND)

    I'm writing this tutorial for now, running under the assumption that you have the iso file for the game, legally or otherwise.


    BASIC CONFIGURATION AND GAME NAME/ID

    1)Download PSX-PSP 1.4, extract all files from the zip and open.(link at bottom)

    /E Right after extracting the files, download and place this file

    http://files.filefront.com/basePBP/;.../fileinfo.html
    in the "files" folder, this will fix the "missing base.pbp" error.
    For this tutorial, i am using theme mode

    2)Once you have the program open, click on the [...] icon beside iso/pbp file and navigate to the iso that you would like to convert for the psp.
    for this tutorial, i am using Resident Evil 2, claire disc, dual shock edition

    3)Click on the [...] button beside output pbp folder, and find the folder where you would like the output file to be, it will output to a sub-folder using the gameid

    4)For the Game Title, Save Title, Game Id, and Save Id, you can either enter them manually, or use the list built in to the program.

    again, to get to the list, click on the [...] icon next to the game title to bring up this list.

    You can either search the list manually by scrolling up and down, or you can type the name of the game into the search bar on the top, where i have typed "resident evil"(hilighted, at the top)
    PART 2: CUSTOMIZING YOUR EBOOT!!OPTIONAL!!

    If you wish to add custom icons, backgrounds, music and video to your PSX games, you can do this through the "customize PBP" menu.
    Otherwise, skip to step 6

    5) First, minimize the convert menu by pressing the convert menu button at the bottom, it makes it a little easier to read everything.

    ICON0 is the icon that shows up on the XMB while you are scrolling
    PIC1 is the background image that shows up when you pause on the icon for your game
    PIC0 Is a transparent overlay that usually gives some information about the game
    SND0 is music that will play when you hover over the icon
    ICON1 is a movie file that plays when you you hover over the icon

    As always, press the [...] icon and navigate to the correct file

    Dimensions of the icons are as follows
    ICON0 144*80
    PIC1 480*272
    PIC0 480*272
    ICON1 144*80
    BOOT 480*272

    you can obtain all these icons from various locations, links will be provided at the bottom

    6) Now that the data input is done, you are ready to convert the iso into a file that your psp can read, an eboot. take one last look at all of the settings, change whatever you need to and press the convert button.

    The program will now start to convert the game , and this dialogue will show up

    Depending on your computer, this could take up to 20 minutes, but a new computers can get this process done in about 3-5 minutes.

    Once the process is done, click on the "ok" button, and the program will go back to the convert menu, if you want to do another file. otherwise, close the program, navigate to the folder that has the converted game in it, and copy the folder to the psp/game folder, so that the path is psp/game/yourconvertedgamehere

    Rain already made a guide on how to do this but yours is more in depth on actually making eboots.

    If the noobs understand how to look before asking questions it should keep them away from this side of the psp for a while...
    Good job!


    EDIT: As soon as I'm on my pc I'll host the download for you...

    EDIT2: Here's the download (MediaFire)

    You're welcome.
    It's good to see someone with low posts posting a guide on how to something instead of asking constantly how to do stuff.
