My other guide shows how to convert PlayStation 1 games to an eboot format to be played on your PSP. However, some games (such as Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy etc) came on multiple disks, which caused a problem as some of them didn’t give the opportunity to save the game before switching disks.
Because of this, it is necessary to create a combined eboot file from both of the disks.
To do this, first download PyPOPS from HERE. You will also need to download and install the Python Interpreter, which you can get from HERE.
Unzip the PyPOPS file, and double click PyPOPS.py. This will open a GUI, and a black command window. DO NOT CLOSE THE COMMAND WINDOW.
Make sure you have images of the disks you want to convert (use IMGBURN…here). Now, just select the files you wish to convert, and make sure the compression is set to 9.
If you want to add a background or icon for when the eboot is selected in the XMB, just put them into the PyPOPS folder, named ICON0.png, PIC0.png like normal.
Finally, just make sure the games title and ID are correct, and make the eboot.
Commands will show in the black command window, just leave it alone and let it do its thing. When it’s finished, your eboot will be output into the PyPOPS folder.
Copy this into the \PSP\GAME folder of your memory card, and it should play from there.
Note that depending on your firmware, you may have to install POPSLOADER to run PS1 games properly. I am running 3.71 M33-4, and have never had any problems at all.
All credit for the PyPOPS program goes to darkthorne of qj.net (HERE).
Hope that helps a few people out.
