Hi
I'm about to finally make the leap to gen d. Would like to play the new GOW, and don't even know if I can play it on m33. Guessing not. Anyways, I have 5.5 gend3 final sitting on my desktop, as well as 5.5 prometheus. Question is, can I go straight from the m33, or are there some intermittent steps? Could some of you fine folks give me a link or two so I can get this show on the road? I've looked around a bit, but not sure where to start. In the past, you guys have always been good enough to eliminate the guess work, which I appreciate.

Thanks in advance.

(This is optional but recommended if you don't want to patch your ISO's)
- (Fully hackable) 100X/200X -
- PC -
1. Download XGEN GEN D3 Updater. Place UPDATE in PSP/GAME and 550.PBP on the root of your memory stick
2. Download Prometheus-2 5.50 GEN-D Addon and place the Prometheus folder in PSP/GAME

- PSP -
1. Run and update to GEN D3 (Be careful what you press on, there is also an option that upgrades to OFW 5.50 and we don't want that!)
2. Run and update to Prometheus-2 and you're done!

- (Semi hackable) 200X/300X -

- PC -

1. Download Prometheus-2 5.03 GEN-C Addon. Place the Prometheus folder in PSP/GAME

- PSP -

1. Run and update to Prometheus and you're done!

You can play it just fine....use ISO Tool to Decrypt then Patch with Prometheus and you're fine. Approximately 2 or 3 button presses and a couple of minutes work.

So do you figure I should even bother upgrading to 5.5 gend3? I know in the past everyone has always said that it is just a matter of opinion, but you guys have a better opinion than I when it comes to this. And xist, I trust your opinion alot, you've helped me out a number of times before....

If you're on GEN D3 you'll still need to patch your games....you'd need to go to the latest Prometheus to get the auto patching for the latest games.

It all depends what you want...if you'll just be playing PSP games, and want the least hassle option then go to Prometheus, but bear in mind that some much older games are incompatible with GEN and Prometheus firmwares (they're rare but they exist.....there's a topic on a9vg about the reasons why but that'll be fixed in the next Prometheus. Also various other random things work better on M33.

If you're happy either getting pre-prometheus fixed games or patching yourself, and like i say it's not hard, then you're not really gaining anything at all by updating, merely losing a few features.

All you'd need is the latest ISO Tool and the files in the 631 Prometheus release and you're set.

Really appreciate the feedback, and thanks to the poster that gave me the link. Decided to go ahead and install the gend and prometheus, for a couple of reasons (I'm old and lazy, and don't have a ton of time to fuck around with stuff, and I enjoy putting new f/w on things). One more question that has nothing to do with this topic, but is Kingdom Hearts playable with my current setup (gend and prometheus)? Or do I have to dick around a bit to get it to go?

Thanks to Prowler, that was the posters name.

You're not going to GEN-D3, you'd be going to Prometheus-2. And yes, Birth by Sleep works fine.

Every one of the latest releases can be played on 5.00M33-6, 5.50 GEN D3 or 5.50 Prometheus-2 so ultimately you're just picking a firmware based upon how interested you are in PSP homebrew and how much you like to know how things work and doing it for yourself, rather than being reliant on someone else.

    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up

    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download
