Launchbox PCSX2 Error

Recommended Posts

Some interesting stuff here, seeing as one of my upcoming tasks will be to play around with PS2 very soon. I apologize if this is seen as derailing, but it might also be too lame to start a new thread about it :)

Packing with 7zip: Some of the games are kinda huge, like 4GB. Does the "unpack before run" not take some serious time at every game startup?

Packing into cso: This idea intrigues me, since i do the same with PSP games. I didn't know this was possible for PS2 also. I read somewhere that PCSX2 will take gzip-files if the emulator indexes the file beforehand, but that seems kinda tedious. So, should i just use the same tool for both PSP and PS2 to end up with cso-files?

I had trouble with the cso compressor for PSP. I'd recommend you use maxcso to compress PS2 games, you can batch convert them all with it (just drag and drop).

The marginal benefit of gzip over cso is not worth the trouble of needing a cache file. CSO it's your best option for PCSX2.

Thank you so much!!! You just saved me a lot of time and probably also a few headaches :)

Never tried maxcso. I will give it a spin this weekend.
