What a name. hahaha

I think I have 20+/- isos installed and with Multiman they all run fine. I do use a launch console but I don't believe that even matters, not 100% though.

They work good and save well when you create a virtual memory card for the PS2 games. Some games require certain settings to get them working with the CFW and apps. But plenty of vids on the YT to help you with that or one of your peeps here might help.

Every thing has been working for me except PAL games that do not have any way in game to switch to US mode. I have found a issue with 2 games I downloaded from the site Akira Psycoball and American arcade not sure if it the iso or the system the games start up but then quickly resets the system this was the native rip of the games from CD have not tried DVD iso convert. Japan games have no problems the ones I have ripped with imgburn work fine.

It does matter. The launch consoles had an integrated PS2-in-a-chip, so if you load via a method that supports that, every single PS2 iso will play perfectly. Certain non-launch PS3 fats (two USB ports) have software based backwards compatibility.

ManaGunZ is the best backup manager for the job on non-backwards-compatible consoles, since it has the best configuration options for compatibility, which it should all do automatically by grabbing the best configs from psdevwiki.

Exactly what bobo said, the launch PS3 had both the PS2's CPU and GPU chips in em meaning you were basically getting full hardware backwards compatibility. Phat PS3's from up to 2008 had the PS2's CPU removed but not the GPU meaning you had half emulation, half hardware emulation. The PS3 slims had everything PS2 removed and now only uses full emulation.

All in all to me it's not really worth emulating PS2 using the PS3. If it's an option grab yourself a Phat PS2, stuff a HDD in it and enjoy PS2 games the way it was meant to be played.

And thanks guys I feel even luckier to own a launch model. :lovetiz:

edit- I can't lie either that a fat PS2 w/sata hdd on a crt still does have loads of fun that just feels right. Omikron is spot on. Fast loading, dirt cheap way to go too.
