    Try actually converting the mdf file not just renaming, I think some eboot compilers can actually read off the mdf files.

    MagicISO should be able to convert. It's not a free program though.

    Ok, tried Magiciso to convert the .mdf to .iso

    Then used the .iso to create the eboot file with
    -icetea 1.3
    -psx2psp
    -popstationgui

    All resulted in black screen.

    When I tried to run the game with the eboot that was created with icetea, I see a loading screen that says "booting playstation bios SCPH100.BIN"

    blargh, I guess I'll give up on Vagrant Story =\

    edit - I won't bother with VS until I get a proper file, the game won't even boot up in epsxe.

    Looks like you got a bad file from the get go then. I know for sure that Vagrant Story works, as I've actually converted and played it.

    Gambia, The
    i played through vagrant story.
    you need to have a bin/cue, iso works too, but bin/cue is best

    a usually mount a mdf with deamon tools, then rip the disc to bin/cue with eg. cdrwin


    the screen "loading playstation bios..." is just a starting screen, it can be replaced at eboot-creation time
