    I know it's probably a bit early to be asking this since most of the homebrew programs are (I'm guessing) still in development, but I was just wondering if any of the PS3 backup launchers that have been released can load PS2 backups? My PS3 can already play PS2 games (it's one of the older releases), I would just like to play KH2 FM+ by using a backup launcher, since the region lock is still in effect. Thanks for any information.

    Actually, i'm pretty sure multiMAN can load PS2 backups, but from what I understand it's still very buggy.

    It was included just to test out the function, but it doesn't work.

    I suggest you look at a method that's been working for years.

    Swap magic loading on PS3. [​IMG]

    Waiting for this myself... Give it a few months I'm sure something will show up. Surely, PSX and PS2 emulation is easier than the rest as the ability to play them is already there, it just needs to be accessed. But I'm no expert and it'll still be very difficult probably...

    Had no idea you can use swap magic on ps3... If you just want to play kh games though there's pcsx2. Even with a crappy cpu and gpu you can play them at 2x res with 60fps

    As for pcsx2 I asked around and the chances of it being ported to ps3 are low

    Wish I still had my Swap Magic... T_T. Or could even use the OPL... T_T.

    Trust me, swap magic + any ps3 compatible swap magic loader = 100% full speed, good quality games my friend [​IMG] I dont think they'll be perfecting ps2 emulation anytime soon as it is...especially since PS1 and PSP emulation have only just gotten speed!

    I believe OPL is my best bet for now. I guess it's time for me to order a SwapMagic for this. However; can anyone confirm whether I require a certain firmware to use SwapMagic/OPL, or will it work as long as my PS3 is one of the 60 gig launch PS3's?
