    Can i launch Pgen emulator directly from xmb by just converting pgen iso with ps2 gui and resigning it and run it as a ps2 game?

    Yes. Actually on HAN is only way to do that. On CFW is not needed, and retroXMB should be used.

    Yeah but i thought that on han you could only launch pgen by running Ulaunch and play it from there

    I doubt that ulaunch is really needed, but I don't use han. Only thing that can make some different is IOP reset performed at start of pgen, but running pgen directly will make it work on clean IOP already.

    1.51s is one that confirmed to work.

    At the second hand if pGEN for some magic reason will not work directly, you can set ulaunch to autoboot it after 1 second from loading ulaunch.

    I just launched it from xmb and it took me back to xmb with error 8200f17

    Here's what I did

    Downloaded pgen.elf and got myself a couple of roms in .bin format

    Then moved roms into roms folder

    Dragged both rom folder and pgen.elf and converted them into iso, next i used ps2 gui and then resigned from ps3 tool resigner, and when i try to launch it, it goes black screen and returns to xmb with an error

    You can use this app: http://www.ps2-home.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2880

    Erm, i downloaded that program, made a Sys.cnf out of Pgen.elf, moved pgen.elf, sys.cnf,roms to convert into iso, and done the steps again, but it still gives me the same error on the ps3, looks like I'll just give up on this since pgen isn't emulating my fav roms accurately anyway, I'll get my hands onpicodrive, thank you so much for your assistance :D
