When playing a game (.iso/UMD) on my PSP 3000 it has a black screen after doing the Home + Cross + Square + Triangle + Circle + R buttons, the PSP's light starts to blink, the screen returns to where it was and then the game freezes. Is it normal or is it because I have CFW installed? I have 6.61 Pro-C Infinity 2.0 installed.

Is TempAR better than CWCheat? I never used the first but the latter doesn't have cheats for many of my games.

Weird. This is a little annoying because I some times do this button combo unconsciously while playing on the PSP.

Have you tried playing GBA ROMs on PSP's RetroArch's VBA-M (or TempGBA, I don't remember)? I have a black screen (IIRC) when I do that, they don't release a + 1.7.0 PSP RetroArch version for some time and I even have problems when playing GBA ROMs on PSP's RetroArch's nightly builds (the latest ones have mGBA but it also has problems when playing GBA ROMs).

Also, what is this "Xbins" RetroArch's site is talking about?

I do not ever used CWCheat.
I decided for TempAR and I am happy with it.
It is easy to use and you can add Cheats to your own Database File.It works fine for me.:)

I am playing GBA Games with TempGBA Mod and SNES Games with Snes9xTYLme Mod.Emulator.Some Adventure Games with ScummVM and many of my PlayStation Adventure Games (converted to EBoot).:)

Can the PSP read EBOOT.pbp games? I used NPS Browser to download PS1 games to play them afterwards on my PS3 but they come in this .pbp file extension and not in the .cue + .bin ones.

You only need your PlayStation Game(s) in

.bin/.cue or ISO or IMG Format

and the Convert Tool

PSX2PSP v1.4.2

You can also add Cover Arts/Background Music and such Things.
A recommendation for using this Tool: The Best is to leave the Compression on "0" None or maximal to "2".If you set it too high you will get issues like Audio stuttering for sure.

Thank you.:)

I never found PS1 games in .iso file extension, only PS2 and PSP ones (not even PS3 ones since I had to convert to .iso from folder file format). Do you know if webMAN MOD reads PS2 EBOOT.PBP games?

Sorry, I do not have a PlayStation 3.
I have no experience with this mod.
I did not know about it until today.:)
