Hello, I currently need help trying to play "Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex" on my recently hacked PS3 (cue/bin format, game is CD based, CECHA console). It's currently with 4.86.1 REBUG LITE EDITION + REBUG TOOLBOX 2.03.04 MULTI, and I've been trying to follow this tutorial, but not all options that appear on the video are present on the version of Rebug Toolbox that I have, not even Webman. Is there something that I need to do to make it work, or do I need to go to Rex Edition, which is on lower firmware? Thanks in advance.

Install webman mod. It's much better. Avoid multiman, never liked it.

Certain features are absent in rebug lite like dumping the erk. Webman hasn't been a part of rebug toolbox for a long time. Install the full version from a standalone pkg. The app will tell you which button to hold. I think it's L1 but I no longer play the ps3 so I may be wrong. You only have to do that once btw.

OK, so I found out that I could just mount the game from Multiman, but I'll try Webman anyway. Thanks for the advice!

Make sure it's Webman Mod not the original Webman. It can mount games on xmb.
All right, so I opened Webman Mod, and OMG, did it cause the fan to spin like crazy on start up! I had to uninstall it to make it stop. I have to look up some info on this to make sure this won't happen again.

That is a bug. I don't know if aldo knows what's causing it. That doesn't happen to me, but it's happened to others.

I'm not sure but too low. Some devs want to modify the syscon table since we have the key. I know there's a table for normal ps3, but the ps2 should be a steady speed. I'm not sure if it's known but both Microsoft and Sony opted for a quieter console rather than a reliable one. 50% is not too high and not too low.

You can set temp thresholds for everything but ps2. 68 is wmm default. The cell is capable of higher temps. Ps2 is tricky since the fan will cool at a specific percentage. It won't increase no matter how hot the system gets. Ps3s run hotter in ps2 mode as well so don't set too low.

OK, so I looked at the settings, and I saw that the fan speed is set to 40% for PS2. Is that an acceptable speed?

depends what it is. 40-50 I think is the suggested speed percentage wise. temp thresholds (what will be maintained in other aspects of gaming or using the ps3) 65-70 is the suggested value in terms of Celsius. 68 is perfect for that. I rarely hear my fans unless playing a ps2 title. if you hold the ps button, you can see ps2 temps while in game. if they're no greater than maybe 72, you've got a good percentage going. try to play an intensive game like ps3 (last of us, which is probably the most intensive game on the system) or one of the gta games on the ps2.

Say, how are you able to see the temperature after pressing the PS button? Is is something I can activate in Rebug Toolbox?
