Possible to install PS1 and PS2 games on same HDD?

Postby shiny_ribbon » Mon Sep 25, 2017 4:40 am

Sorry for newb question, just got HDD. Works very good with PS2 games

Now I am looking for way to put PS1 game on the same HDD. Is it possible? PS2 is in PS2 format that only WinHiip can read, so I think it's not possible then. Is it?

Yes it's possible to do.

Checkout the description as well on how to do it. There may be even easier ways to do it now, but I haven't kept up with it. I found that not all PS1 games looked correct running from the HDD. So I got myself a real PS1.

EDIT: I was typing that up, while you posted it seems. lol

I followed the tutorial but it didn't work

I made partition with Ule_KHn
Partition called __.POPS
Put SYMPHONY.VCD inside
In the __common folder I have
Code: Select all
__common/SYMPHONY.ELF
__common/POPS/SYMPHONY.ELF
__common/POPS/POPS.ELF
__common/POPS/POPS.PAK
__common/POPS/IOPRP252.IMG
__common/POPS/PFS_WRAP.BIN
__common/POPS/POPSTARTER.ELF

and then in the +OPL folder I have conf_elm.cfg with
Code: Select all
Symphony of the Night=pfs0:/SYMPHONY.ELF


IN OPL it shows up correct, but when I launch the game (from OPL or Ulaunch) it goes to black screen and then back to Ulaunch or PS2 menu

I tested this game with USB it work fine but with freeze everytime the music stops. that's why I was trying with HDD instead. but with HDD it just goes to black screen

What should i do?

Nope. Just tried DB Final Bout with same result. I played it over USB no problem too.
It would be fine if I could launch through UlaunchElf, but I can't even do that

Never mind. I'm an idiot.

I had a wrong POPS.ELF file. It's a 3MB file
it goes in __common/POPS/
and it goes in the same folder with IOPRP252.IMG

So this one was really just me being dumb, sorry about that.

It runs better off the HDD, I fixed a problem I had with Symphony of the Night

It won't work from the HDD with that version of OPL, you'll have to use 1005_DB or 1026_DB_DIRTY_01.

Plus that tutorial is old, there's a newer one written by LopoTRI.

Yea, I can't get it to run from OPL. But from Ulaunch they work fine.
Ok thanks, I'll get 1005_DB and see if it works

No problem.

There's a new version now, 1027_DB.

You should use that instead of 1005_DB :)
