    cp: target `/media/data/' is not a directory

    Wondering if I create this file if it will help.

    Ah, yes - use the 20+ line version. It creates the directories first. ;)
    Thats what the error message is complaining about.

    I might have had a /data directory on the USB stick already. :)

    also noticed games was capitalized on the usb, but not in the script, and I believe linux is picky about those kinds of things.

    No, this only backs up the systems 20 game folders. (Copies them from the NAND to the USB stick) For a full nand backup, see:
    I suggest you start reading this thread...

    Maybe start here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/playstation-classic.522781/page-19#post-8421883

    This wont backup boot0/1, but currently we arent writing anything to that part of the system anyhow. So theoretically its still possible to brick, with this - but you'd have to go waaaaaaaay out of your way to do so... ;)

    Acutally, the thing the boot.log is complaining about seems to be a space.

    cp: target `/media/data/' is not a directory

    starts the file path with a space.

    Make sure that after the /data/* there is only one space then followed by /media/data/

    (Also - copy directly to lolhack.sh using a texteditor with linux line endings, in case the sed stuff in there is messing with whitespaces (spaces, ...))

    Try a working cue/bin. :)
    Dont download pbps off the internet. If you want to use pbps, create them yourself using psx2pbp from PSX isos/ cue/bins.

    Your installation is fine, your game images are not. ;)

    edit: Also - use options>load game image - dont just use the "change game image" option on the first level. One is changing CDs, one is changing cds and rebooting the emulator (which is needed).

    Also - I'll support people wanting to go fun cudtom ways for maybe another two days - after that I strongly suggest you use BleemSync properly if you need easy and someone for a back and forth. ;)

    Following a "standard" (even if it might currently be not the be all and end all) has something to it as well... ;)

    Try using the lolhack.sh instead. Use a freshly unzipped copy from the original zip, open it in notepad++. After that - no clue.

    The copys (cp) all fail because the operation is not supported or permitted.

    Creating the directory fails - because it says there is a file named like that already on your usb stick.

    Those are all errors that are strange as hell. Check the filesystem on your usb stick, is the stick corrupted? Is it not formated as Fat32 (32kb cluster size)?

    If a copy command fails onto a usb stick, because the USB stick refuses to be written on, you have bigger issues. No remote troubleshoot possible. I'm not your "fix my pc" guy. ;)

    I know the commands work - I used them today on my setup.

    Hello,

    i'm using BleeSync and i'm looking for settings for Metal Gear Solid (italian iso) and Grant Turismo (US version), because there are some glitches but the gameplay is not to bad.

    Sorry for my bad English, Thanks

    More news on the look how lazy Sony was front - you actually dont need to backup all the games default emulator .cfg files (20+ lines version), because they are all the same.

    Sony did all the amazing work of including 20 games, leaving them all at default settings, hiding the double internal resolution feature - and then calling it a day.

    I found out by looking at md5 hashes of all the backed up config files.

    Amazing:
    Code:

    Here is how I imagine that the project meeting went:

    Tim: "So what emulator settings did you choose for the individual games?"
    Bob: "What are emulator settings?"

    So could this mean you could make settings per game for the Emu and save it in the games Pcsx.cfg file
    And also change it for the ones that come on the system
    And push them
    Back

    Editing save files with this windows utility works:
    http://emutopia.com/index.php/emulators/item/386-memory-card-managment/303-memcardrex

    With BleemSync they are just on your USB stick - you can look for them (the are in a hidden folder. :))

    With gpghax, or stock games you can use this method:

    Back them up to your usb stick first with:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    mkdir /media/backup/
    mkdir /media/backup/data/;cp -R /data/* /media/backup/data/
    You can then copy them back over with:
    (This presumes that a memory card with the name 21_card1.mcd is in the root of your USB stick - and that you want to replace it on system for game 21)
    Code:
    cp /media/21_card1.mcd /data/AppData/sony/pcsx/21/.pcsx/memcards/card1.mcd
    If you mess up the memory cards for one game on the system - you can delete that games data (savegames and savestates) folder using:
    Code:
    rm -rf /data/AppData/sony/pcsx/21/.pcsx/
    The next time you launch the game (and maybe press reset?) it will be recreated.

    This assumes, that you already have basic knowledge of the system, lolhack.sh editing and linux terminal commands. Please dont attempt to use this if you dont. Easier tools will probably be created and released in the future.
    If you rm -rf the wrong stuff, you have a brick on your hands. You do this at your own risk.

    (Simply replacing game 22s memorycard with game 21s didnt work for me - but editing it with MemcardRex worked. :) )

    Retroarch srm files can be renamed to mcr to work with Memcard Rex.

    Just watching some BBC... :)


    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Yes, all of that should be possible. :)
    Wait for better tools. :) (The games have a default configuration, thats in the actual games folder (those are all the same). When you save a configuration in the ESC menu, those get saved in that games data folder though - so you'd have to find out when the configurations actually get loaded, and from where first - but its definitely possible. :))

    Although it is somewhat more likeley, that Retroarchs PCSXRearmed will get released, and possibly even implemented as "possible default emulator", and that it will be more optimized - so dont rush it yet. :)

    Here is a video that seems to indicate that most of the R4 stutter comes from frameskip being activated:


    Be careful with hitting "save as global config". I would rather not have you do that...

    Using similar commands we can replace games in internal memory. Just replaced Tekken 3 with NTSC version (+ pre configured pcsx.cfg :D ).

    Also changing Bios to regular one (eg dumped from real console) - re-enable full PSX intro before game boot :)
