    Hello there here is my question:

    I might soon have PS3, version CECHAxx with PS2 hardware emulation chip. I plan to install Rebug on it. What I don't know is, if I play iso of PS2 game through rebug, will it use PS2 hardware to play iso, or just software emulation?

    Sorry for my English :)

    "Rebug" itself is not an iso loader (though it includes Cobra, which is off by default, that is); and Cobra (which is in turn typically controlled by a "*man" homebrew like Webman) supports both hardware PS2 mode (by default) and 100% software emulation :)

    So, unless you manually request otherwise, PS2 mode will use hardware if available

    I thought the default was software mode. I'm sure I had to do something to make it use hardware mode.

    At least for rebug + webman and ferrox cobra + webman combos, the default is definitely hardware
    (the newest versions of said two cfws add a temperature display when pressing home in the software-only emulator, so it's also easy to double check what's in fact used)

    The next time I have a BC console out I'll try it, my normal test is inserting a PS2 burnout game that doesn't work on the software emulator.
