    CPS2PSP ver.2.2.0 for PSP slim (test version) 2007/09/30

    With this new release you no longer have to Cache any of your CPS2 games [​IMG]

    It seems that the extra RAM in the Psp slim allows you to load all games direct with the Caching now being done in RAM.
    This is great because now you can just run all of your games without the time consuming Caching with full sound, full speed just like before.

    Is it true that the slim removes the 1.5 loader, which makes it incompatible with v1.5 homebrew?

    The Slim hardware is incompatible with the 1.5 kernel period so no homebrew that uses the 1.5 kernel will work. However homebrew can be ported from 1.5 to the 3.XX kernel, coded from scratch and / or some Hen D versions of 1.5 homebrew will work, for example the 1.5 version of gpSP (GBA emulator) will not work on the Psp Slim but the Hen D port works flawlessly.

    Making the 1.5 kernel totally incompatible with the slim hardware was Sonys tactic to stop hackers dead in their tracks but of course it failed. However without Pandora Sony may have been able to prevent homebrew for a very very long time. (This is why you do not see a menu with the Pandora Slim).

    I was hoping it would run all 1.5 homebrew. There goes my purchase. Ah well.

    You can increase your chances to load 1.50 kernel homebrew by using the new eloader that was made a while back. That will load and play just about all 1.50 homebrew - you just need to go through the eloader to do so. Expect programs like IRShell to just never work unless they are fully ported over for you.

    does this mean some game backups from older psp games will not be able to work on the psp slim even with custom firmware?

    Installed this to a friends Slim yesterday (newest version, with Ad-Hoc support!), I don't really get the re-addition of the whole manual caching of roms thing, as it wasn't necessary in the previous version, but eh. Additionally, didn't understand what it meant when it said only Phats can connect to Slims for Ad-Hoc and vice versa... [​IMG] (Maybe I read it wrong?)

    Hopefully there will be more rom support in the future, I can't wait to add some more classic titles to the Slim (particularly Battletoads, Turtles, for Ad-Hoc [​IMG] )

    Totally agreed on that there wasnt caching in the older versions...Why did they put it in ?Maybe for faster multiplayer?
