[Release] PS2 Classics Manager v1.01 (CFW 4.XX)(BETA)
NOTE: This release is still a BETA / TEST build, it is fully functional from what I have tested, but until more people test it I cannot declare it final.
NOTE 2: THIS THREAD WILL GET UPDATED LATER WITH MORE INFO IF NEEDED, AT THIS TIME I HOPE I’VE COVERED THE MOST IMPORTANT AREAS, PLEASE READ ALL DETAILS.

And thanks to everybody else who has showed me their support and appreciation to this free, open and humble project.
:: What is PS2CM ?
PS2CM is a new application I made with its core based on my previous homebrews (FB Alpha RL / gamePKG). I didn’t change much on the UI, so that is why it seems so similar. At the current state, PS2CM will help users manage their PS2 games collection and convert them easily to PS2 Classics encrypted format.
:: Main Features (Quick List)
- Set PS2 converted games active in PS2 Classics Placeholder
- Encrypt valid PS2 ISO(s) / BIN(s) as PS2 Classics and automatically patch LIMG segment (no need for anything else, just the ISO / BIN)
- Import External PS2 games (ISO / BIN / ENC). Split games supported (.ISO.66600 / .BIN.66600 / .ENC.66600)
- Game List with display of Cover images, Information box, Title ID, Title acquired from a text DB and more.
- Memory Cards manager to easily switch between your collection of VME, and assign them as SLOT 1 or SLOT 2.
- Automatic export / decryption of the active Memory Cards to XMB->Memory Card Utility as VM2.
- …more at the change log.

:: Setting up PS2 Classics Manager v1.01
- CLEAN UP
Before you install this release of PS2 Classics Manager, make a backup of any Memory Card data, Covers or anything you stored in PS2 Classics Placeholder directory or PS2 Classics Manager directory.
After doing that, you should remove / uninstall them from XMB both, just to make sure, and install PS2CM v1.01 and PS2 Classics Placeholder R3.
- MEMORY CARDS
For the Automatic Export / Decryption of the active Memory Cards feature, you must navigate on the XMB to “Memory Card Utility” and create 2 Memory Cards called “MC1” and “MC2“, without quotes.
Every time you run PS2CM memory cards should automatically be copied as backup to “/dev_hdd0/PS2VME_BKP” for security reasons. And they will be automatically exported / decrypted as mentioned earlier.
To access data on the decrypted Memory Cards you just have to navigate to XMB -> Memory Card Utility, select MC1 or MC2 and change its icon to make the PS3 refresh the contents.
