    PS2 Compatibility Log
    Started on: 9/24/2018
    Introduction
    I am using this thread to document certain PS2 games that I am testing using Ps3Xploit HAN - PS2 Classics.
    I own several games in which I've been unable to find any information on via
    [DevWiki]-PS2 Classics Compatibility List
    The information I'm sharing and have collected is thanks to
    PSX-Place community as well as the DevWiki.

    • [Updated 9/24/2018]
      There are several sections in this thread. If you're interested, check the list of PS2 games I have tested as well as a list of games I have in queue. I will provide a brief description of my experiences with these games, noting problems I encounter, as well as offer
      probable fixes should they exist.

    • [Updated 9/24/2018]
      [PS2 Title] | [Description.] | [Status]
      *A game's Status is represented in the following colors:
      Gray = Not yet tested. See PS2 Classics Compatibility List if information is available.
      Green = Runs (at/near) perfect or equivalent to the Official PS2 Classics title.
      Blue = Minor slowdowns or graphical issues.
      Orange = Slowdowns or graphical issues, may affect gameplay.
      Red = Major graphical or critical issues, making gameplay difficult or impossible.
      Star Ocean: Till the
      End of Time (USA)
      For best performance, use the CONFIG file provided.
      After starting the game, turn off Smoothing in the settings to further increase the frame rate. Slowdowns that occur are usually minor, and doesn't affect gameplay.
      (See CONFIGS tab for file.)​
      Playable
      Wild Arms 3 (USA)I am still early in the game, but have very rarely seen any visual problems.
      When I did, it was only small frame shifting for several seconds during cut-scenes.(Does not hinder the viewer's experience.) Both on the map & during battle run smooth. Didn't use any certain CONFIG file. Could not find one for this game: SCUS-97203
      Playable
      Radiata Stories (USA)Minor slowdowns frequently on the map & during battle.
      (Used an older version of PS2Classics_GUI to convert this game. I will retry this title using a custom CONFIG file and provide an update soon.)​
      Playable

      Currently in queue:
      Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter
      Grandia II
      Grandia III
      Grandia Xtreme
      Wild Arms 4
      Wild Arms 5

      Here, you can find custom CONFIG files for specific games.
      In order to use these files, you
      MUST BE USING PS2Classics_GUI V2.1 OR LATER!

      Example
      [PS2 Title]
      [CONFIG]
      [Notes]

      ------------------------------------------

      Star Ocean - Till the End of Time (USA)
      [STAROCEAN3_V2.SLUS_204.88 .config]
      Using the provided CONFIG file, turn of Smoothing in the settings after the game loads.
      This setting must be turned off each time the game is loaded.
      In combination, frame rates will be greatly increased, however there are still certain instances
      when the game may slow down such as during cut-scenes or on certain areas of a map.
      Battle seems to be less affected, and can be played without issue.

      ------------------------------------------

      If you have found any CONFIG files for titles that I have listed in PS2 Classics or have any other custom config files that you would like to share, feel free to contact me either by a reply or PM. I would like to create a central place where these files can be found & shared for convenience.​



    • As I come across CONFIG files & test games, I will try to update this thread when possible. Eventually I may even expand the scope of other console generations. I am also learning how to edit CONFIG files in the hopes of creating better performance in certain titles.
      If any of the information that I have provided is of any particular use, please feel free to use it!​

    You can do this by config, no need to go to menu every time. I attached new config, try when you can.

    Game have minor text issue because of bad string in one of files. It will display some mess instead of your name, iirc. Issue is also on real ps2. I will post config for that later. Not sure that other issues exist.

    Custom config have included turn off smoothing command, which is highly recommended for that game.

    I'll try out that Config for Star Ocean today and replace the one I uploaded. I am also aware of the Wild Arms 3 problem you mentioned.
    I'll keep that in mind about changing the Smoothing setting via the Config file as well.
    Thanks for all the help & information! Should you share a Wild Arms 3 config, I'll be willing to test it as well. I wasn't able to find any CONFIG for it in the PS2Classics_GUI config folders.
    I haven't checked Radiata Stories since I figured out Star Ocean's performance, it makes sense that it would work on both titles considering these 2 games are (engine-wise) very similar.
    I'll update my information as I go through them today.

    Remember when you find a new working config you can ask @Zar (here in the forum) to upload the config to managunz github https://github.com/Zarh/ManaGunZ/tree/master/pkgfiles/USRDIR/sys/CONFIG/CUSTOM
    All the configs of this link are made by the community, and by now is like the centralized place where are collected

    Managunz is a backup manager for CFW, but the other programs like the PS2 classics gui uses the configs from managunz github
    I guess eventually this will become a mess and every app will have a different selection of configs... but by now i think we are not at that point yet
    In psdevwiki are stored all this custom configs too (for the record and for historical purposes because it was needed to study them one by one to reach the point we are now)
    Lets say... we (the community) have a very small mess with all this colections of custom configs, but by now is partially under controll XD

    Nice! I've read a little about ManaGunZ, I wasn't aware of the repo & devwiki collection. The config files I've obtained separate from what comes in the PS2Classics_GUI set were found around the PSX-Place forum and 2 other communities.
    I'll add links of the collections to the Configs section for others to find, and I'm getting ready to check them out as well.
    Thanks for the information, I'll gladly inform @Zar should I come across any working better than what's on record.
    I haven't checked for the ones I've found so far, it's possible they're already in those collections.

    I welcome all this information, I'm trying to be as accurate as I can while learning at the same time.
