If you like to stay cutting edge, then you’ll want to check out deank’s multiMAN 04.30.00 TEST update. This update features several changes to the ps2classics implementation as well as the multiMAN core itself. Take a look at the changes:
- multiMAN ver 04.30.00 UPD CEX (20130331).pkg
- ps2classics.rar (modified by me)
This test update requires that you have 04.30.00 BASE or updated online to 04.30.00. The online version is not updated with this test build.
Changes in ps2classic:
- Added 64bit file access functions to support 4GB+ files (for LIMG and encryption)
- Added asynchronous READ/WRITE to improve encryption speed (1GB / 3min)
- Added progress bar and ‘Remaining time’ information to the encryption
- Added check if the provided ISO is a CD or DVD image for proper LIMG header creation
Changes in multiMAN:
- Added support to encrypt standard disc-backup PS2 ISO files from /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO and /dev_usb***/PS2ISO to PS2 Classics
- Added support to delete PS2 Classics (ISO+folder)
- Added support to load PS2 Classics from USB HDD (folder will be transferred to internal HDD)
- Encryption is done by spawning “ps2classics” which resides in mM’s USRDIR/sys/PS2C.BIN (the one provided in the ps2classics.rar above)
Basically it comes down to:
1) Rip your original PS2 game disc with multiMAN (it took just 4-5 mins to backup my KILLZONE disc) / or transfer a PS2 ISO backup to /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO
2) Go to RETRO column and load the ISO – you’ll be prompted to convert to PS2 Classic
3) Conversion takes 2 to 5 mins and you’ll be returned to multiMAN (you’ll see the converted game with [PS2 Classic] suffix in the name)
4) Activate the PS2 Classic and start it from XMB/PS2 Classic Placeholder
Default CID and KLICENSE used (compatible with aldostools and CaptainCPS-X tools/apps):
deank has also tested the conversion process for a PS2 Classics and has managed to do it all in 24 minutes. If you want to give this version of multiMAN a shot, you can download it from below. You must be on the 04.30.00 BASE version before installing this version.
