PS2 ISOtoXMB Conversion GUI v1.0 Beta by Spewfr

March 29, 2013

Scene developer Spewfr has created and released this great new tool for the recently discovered PS2 Classics hack. This tool is a command line gui which will put any PS2 ISO on the XMB and will allow you to launch the game right from the XMB. With the release of PS1toPS3 and the upcoming release of RetroXMB, this will be great for users who are currently rekindling their relationship with the older PSX generation. For more details on how to use this tool, check out the changelog below.

Following up on my PS2Classics Guide on Converting ISOs to XMB PS2 Games guide, today I (Spewfr) have released a PS2 ISO to XMB Conversion Command-Line GUI v1.0 Beta for PS3 users complete with source code.

I recently decided to start converting my PS2 ISO’s for use with the PS3 system; here you have a Command-Line GUI that I think is simple to use.

NOTE THAT THIS TOOL uses the same RAP key for every game it processes (the same one that PS2Classics GUI uses, so credit to them for all of the hard work over at ps3dev-network)

If enough positive feedback is given to this project, I will continue to enable BIN formats and add other changes…

What this program will do:

  • Create a PKG and RAP for your ISO
  • Pros: Can launch the game from XMB at any point
  • No multi-man required
  • Cons: Requires disc space (but you can use a game data switcher)
  • Requires installation of multiple RAP’s


1. Place your icons files inside of the Images folder
2. Run PS2iso2pkg.exe
3. Enter the PS2 Game ID
4. Enter the PS2 Game Title
5. Follow the On-Screen Instrucions
6. WAIT until all [9] processes have completed
7. COPY the “exdata” and “packages” folder to an external HDD
8. Install the PKG entitled with your Game ID
9. Install and run reActPSN (included in packages folder)
10 You’re all good!
