    I have like 75 ps1 games on my psp, and when I go to them I see these memory cards icon or whatever. And I dont see the titles.

    However I can press triangle and go to info bla bla bla.

    But it's very ineffective when you're searching for a particular game.

    Would anyone know if a plugin excists, so you can see titles in a like a overview or atleast per title directly without having to press buttons?

    THANKS!

    ps1 game MUST be convert to EBBOOT format with a Popstation app
    and put the the PSP/GAME folder each in is own folder

    PSP/GAME/FFVII
    PSP/GAME/FFVIII
    PSP/GAME/FFXI
    PSP/GAME/Tombai

    if you make the eboot right you should be able to see the game title

    I take it you just downloaded these games from some nefarious place? Sounds like whoever made them didn't name them properly.

    I have converted all games using this psx to psp tool. It automatically entered all names. I pressed convert and get a folder named like SLUS000123

    I tried renaming the folder, but when I put it on my memory card it would read as damaged data.

    So I converted 160 psx games using there SLUS folders. Anyway. There is no such thing as any title. Not even slus etc. so i doubt that info you are saying.

    there are tool like PSX2PSP that let you set the name of the game
    and set the different thing the show on the xmb when you highlight it on the XMB(icon and background) and set the screen the show right after you run the game

    That is the tool I use. And NO psx2psp doesnt let you set the name of the game. Or well it can has an option to use gametitle instead of ID. The folder that is output: APPEARS CORRUPT ON THE PSP. Hence, I can only use game ID/(slus02013012) ... for the games.

    I have no idea what you mean with your 2nd sentence.. what is XMB anyway>?

    are you using BATCH MODE, (that quick and lazy way)

    PSX2PSP will let you set the Title for each game, if you DO NOT USE Batch mode

    it will take longer but if you do Each game, you should be able to set the game title(and everthing else) if you do it normal slow way

    one game at a time

    All my PSX games that are converted with PSX2PSP 1.42 have proper names. Should work just fine.

    none of my converted games have names. i know what they are by the icon and background image i used during the converting process. for THPS, for example, i see the tony hawk pro skater icon and the ps1 box art. when i press triangle to goto information, then the title is there.

    try following the guide:

    Still having this issue.. my games are batch converted... so it's too late to add images not that I would cuz its too much work for 200 psx games.. or to do them one by one, is insane.

    Any plugin or method I can use to quickly find out what game I am dealing with?

    Yes, you can. Go to CFW recovery menu - configuration - hide PIC0.PNG and PIC1.PNG in game menu - enabled.
    Done, now you can see the titles (if your games have Sony ID, iso like NetYarozeCollection will not have Sony ID).

    I do believe batch mode tends to be a bit glitchy. It's never put out a good eboot for me, but that could be caused by me running it under WINE. Either way, try repackaging them under classic mode. Wouldn't hurt to give it a try.

    I must be really lame,but I enjoyed making my PS1 Eboots. I didn't do all 100 in a day but 4 or 5 a day, picking pics, cropping pics, re-sizing and formatting them pure bliss.

    Thanks!! that is a little bit better... though it is not instant... takes 1.5 sec for the text to show.

    Worst thing is it is also not listed alphabetically..

    I had much preferred a simple text list with my games..

    Anything else I can do??

    Unfortunately psp can't handle so much games to load them fast from big memory card (this is not mini sd adapter? real memory stick? use real memory stick for top performance)

    Another tips:
    • 0. Install "ps3" theme or another, that make your XMB much smaller, you will see more titles/also try to install alternate OS like IRSHell if possible or something like
    • 1. Try to find in CFW recovery menu something like "speed up MS access - enabled" - if you will find it, turn it on. (depends of your psp type and cfw version)
    • 2. Try to use this psp psx converter with picture as title that will do automaticly - PSX2PSP tool.
    • 3. Forget about psp. Use android device (with buttons) with psx emulator, that can handle fast loading from ROM list full of games and etc.

    0. downloaded it, but didn't change anything.. for example http://www.psp-themes.net/tech-computer-themes/ps3-theme-296-psp-theme.htm
    IRSHell doesn't work. I got 6.6 pro C or something
    http://www.pspmod.com/forums/psp-software-firmware-plugins/72782-irshell-6-60me-1-3-a.html
    1. This option was not present!
    2. This is Chinese to me? I have used the PSX2PSP yes. The games I ran through it had an empty Game-card icon in the pSP game list.
    3. I hate phone's stupid radiation and touch. I love psp's want to make this work also for my nephew.

    It's a shame though cuz it's ALMOST perfect.

    I set it on always.. Lets see if it makes a difference.

    I see what you're trying to do now, disregard my previous post. I never had that many Eboots on my PSP to think about something like that. Anyway, the only thing you can do to have them in alphabetical order is modify the time stamps on the folder the Eboots are in, unless you want to run them from a shell like IRShell.
