Lali ho! I've finally acquired some blank CDs and as such am looking into playing PS1 games on my softmodded PS2 Slim. I've installed the FreeMcBoot program to my memory card (god bless that program, it brings me so much joy) and PS2 games are a cinch, but PS1 is proving difficult. I put the PSXlauncher ELF in the BOOT folder, set the shortcut key to R1, hold R1 during powerup with a PS1 disk inserted, and it says 'failed to launch' something or other. So I go to the boot folder and launch it manually, and it seems to work fine, black screen with a list of instructions. I then wait for my PS1 disk to stop spinning and swap it over for the game I just burned. Silent Bomber, burned to a blank disk, I used the .BIN file 'cause that's what unpacking it gave me, and it says 'not a PSX disk'. Help please. Also, my system is a PAL 7000 series slim if that helps. The ELF file says it's for series 9 and above, do I need a different version or something? One final question. As I understand it, the PSX backups have to be the same region as the original PSX disk. Is this true, and if so, is there a way of using my setup to play PSX games from other regions? FreeMcBoot seems to have no issues playing foreign PS2 games, so the regional lockouts can obviously be circumvented. If so, how do I play games from the US on my PAL system? Is there maybe a format converter or something? Cheers for your time, guys.
