How can I re-use my PS3/PSP vita PSX.pkg games?

Postby guymelef » Sun Oct 21, 2012 6:16 pm

I briefly looked for information on how to re-use my psOne pkg files for fpse for android.
The pkg files are *not* (edit) seen by the load rom dialog.
I decrypted the pkg and extracted the eboot.pbp but when I load it with fpse, it kicks me back to fpse start screen.

I have not read anywhere that this should work. I want to know if anyone else has thought of this.

I haven't set up my signature yet so:

Fpse purchased via play store up to date
Asus Transformer Prime tf201
Stock Rom up to date.
Android 4.1.1

So far I haven't had any issues running Fpse. I played through FF Tactics with no issues. I am pleased that Cheat code feature are still being worked on to get it to accept GS 2.2 codes. Awesome.

FPSE only lets you play PSX / PS1 games, not Vita, PS2 or PS3 games.

You'd have no chance running it on ANY phone on the market

Yeah PS1 games from the PS network. I was led to believe that FPSE will play EBOOT.PBP that were made for the psp 1000 - 3000. The ones for PS3 have .pkg extension and when unpacked contain an eboot.pbp file, but this file doesn't work with FPSE. Not that I thought it should. But I can legally buy them and use them so maybe there would be a way to incorporate them into FPSE. I guess someone smarter than me could take compare a rom bought for the PSP and PS3 (pbp versus pkg) unpack them and compare them to see what is different. I think this could drastically help maintain the PSX library.

It's pkgview 1.3

The author's page is
http://ps3zone.ifcaro.net/

Download page
http://foro.ifcaro.net/pkgview-t193.html

The program is in english but it would be easy to understand if it wasn't.

Thoughts:
It has to be very similar to psp eboots. I bet there is some meta data in the pkg that the eboot needs. Whereas everything was hardcoded for the psp, the directories and such could be different for the ps3 so the eboot.pbp was altered. A hex edit of both should clear this up.
