    Just want to ask what is the best program/app to convert ps1/psx iso (with .cue file) to pkg?
    ive seen lots of app but cant decide what is the best in terms of making it looks legit as the official ps1 classics by sony...

    thanks and haave a nice day...

    I think that retro xmb is best for that.

    Yes, it is. Remember to copy the latest RELOAD.SELF from IRISMAN to .\TEMPLATE-PSX\USRDIR in Retro XMB folder on the PC before create the PKGs.

    The conversion to psx classics, explained here, is too cumbersome.

    You can try this rar... IMHO, RetroXMB is easier: you only have to drag & drop the ISO and create the pkg. While PSXclassics require more manual steps that involve creation of a EBOOT.PBP, encryption of ISO.BIN.DAT and creation of the PKG.

    The new PSXclassics tool is simple now. Make an eboot with PSX2PSP and drop it in "make_psone_classic_metadata.exe"
    It creates a signed dat. Then just encrypt the dat to edat. Mutidisc games work now too.

    You just edit the eboot in hex. Delete the 00's on top of "STARTDAT" then take the offset of the dat and place it in the first 4 bytes under "PSTITLEIMG000000" in little endian. I have both ntsc Fear Effects and Koudelka working. Fear Effect 2 is 2.60 gb.

    thanks for the link, i prefer the ps1classics method even its hard, cuz i think its the method that almost similar to official ps1classics...
    once ive learned how to use it, im going to make a noob friendly tutorial for everyone..


    looks like you can easily convert ps1 to ps1classics...
    can you guide me step by step? if you dont mind or if you have free time?

    so are you using the ps1classics tool? the one that reuploaded by aldostools above?
    i read the instructions and i have some questions...

    on step 2 it says: Use pip to install ecdsa
    what does it means? how to do it?

    and on step 3: Create EBOOT.PBP from iso with PSX2PSP (Compression:0-None)
    upon opening the program and browsing each tab, theres lots of options/choices/checkbox...
    on the close/open parentheses it says "Compression:0-None"
    so i dont need to change any of the default setting except for the compression that should be set to 0, am i right?

    Here is my set of the new tool recently released.

    http://www31.zippyshare.com/v/wdVGU08U/file.html

    You don't need to install python or pip now.
    Revised steps are in there but I'll put it here too.

    Steps:

    Code:
    Create EBOOT.PBP from iso with PSX2PSP (Compression:0-None)
    Place EBOOT.PBP in workbench directory
    Drop EBOOT.PBP into "make_psone_classic_metadata.exe"
    
    Open a terminal/command prompt and cd to psx_classics folder
    
    Take note of title id of your game
    Encrypt ISO.BIN.DAT:                                           (Title id)
    make_npdata -e ISO.BIN.DAT ISO.BIN.EDAT 1 1 1 0 16 3 00 UP9000-SLUS01266_00-0000000000000001 5
    Replace EBOOT on a psx classic decrypted pkg (or use template)
    Replace ISO.BIN.EDAT on a psx classic decrypted pkg (or use template)
    Replace Pictures (or use template)
    Replace Param.SFO (or use template)
    Make PKG.
    Done!
    Don't mess with any tabs but 0 compression in PSX2PSP. You have to use classic mode for multdiscs.
    You can copy & paste the whole "make_npdata" line in command prompt. Just change the Title id first.
    There's a psx psn working folder in the rar to use as a template.
    There's also an icon0 sample folder for photoshop/gimp to make it look official.
    CDDA games don't play BGM. Sony does some crazy compression we don't know about yet.

    MultiDiscs vary because the offsets will always be different. Just look at the "STARTDAT" and "PSTITLEIMG000000"

    Delete the 00's on top of the "STARTDAT" take note of the offset.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Write the offset of the "STARTDAT" under the first 4 bytes of "PSTITLEIMG000000" in little endian.
    Save new eboot and then follow the steps above.

    Your method has tried & fourth disc Offsets at 0x10200 has modified, but fourth DISC get 80028F17(Final Fantasy VIII).

    That thing did not like windows 10 pro 64bit. It shot up multiple processes of psx_save. I had to restart.

    I'm not too sure why your trying convert that when it's out officially on psn.

    Yes, it's more simple.... and I've reduced your steps a bit more ;)

    _Fix_EBOOT.PBP_.exe calls "make_psone_classic_metadata.exe" to make the ISO.BIN.DAT from EBOOT, execute make_npdata.exe and edit the PARAM.SFO with the title id and game title. I also replaced the ICON0.PNG with a generic icon.

    Only 4 steps are needed:
    1. Create EBOOT.PBP from iso with PSX2PSP (Compression:0-None)
    2. Place EBOOT.PBP in workbench directory
    3. Run _Fix_EBOOT.PBP_.exe (wait until EBOOT.PBP is moved to PKG directory)
    4. Make PKG.

    optional (before make PKG)
    - Replace Pictures (or use template)
    - Replace Param.SFO (or use template)

    Note: I didn't test multi-disc games...

    Awesome! Can't wait to try it. When CDDA is figured out, I'm sure we'll have another great aldostools gui.

    Multidisc is rough.. Since it's random offsets needing edits due to different eboot sizes..
    The guy that showed me is gonna make an extensive guide..
    When that's released. Hopefully you'll stare at it and figure something out.
