    the guy who made this video is russian or ukrainian… zdarova zemlyak… <– (ukrainian).. but whats the point of this plugin… since all hens and cfw run ps one these days…

      Much more compatibility is how I understand it

      • Shinny

        that was fast… yeah i think so… but one more thing.. will my FF IX stop crashing… any ideas?

          People were big on popsloader in the early days because for whatever reason, certain games worked best on certain firmwares. What popsloader does is enables you to change the PSP into thinking it’s on a certain firmware for said game.

          Example. When I played Chrono Cross I played the game across at least 7 different firmwares.

          During early firmwares, were you able to play up to and past the first boss.
          When you got to a certain part of the game, the game would just crash (it’d also crash if you looked at the character model within the status)

          A few firmwares later you were able to finally get past that initial crash. BUT, the new gamers, they were no longer able to even get past the first boss. So in order to do that you had to use popsloader to “change” the firmware back to an earlier one.

          I don’t know what the compatibility for Chrono Cross is now but that was from my experience. I have been able to beat it on PSP, though, so yay.

      What I see in the gameboot screen in PSX. The flag resembled Philippines flag, I guess its a filipino who made that video. And yeah, more PSX games will be played long live PSP

    umm ok but i still don’t understand how to make multiple cd eboots for my FF8 and legend of dragoon

    • shortboy

      You’ll need a PS1 eboot maker that supports multi CD creation. I can’t tell you of an easy one right now because I always ran mine through command/ms-dos/how DarK_Alex first presented it.

    A bit off topic, but anyone know how that guy got the PS controller, and the battery life different on his Dayviewer? Any info would help, thanks!

    • wololo

      A large part of the audience moved to the forums at /talk, but the blog still gets roughly as much attention as it got during the HBL era 🙂

      • Shinny

    is it worth it to upgrade from the old TN-HEN(D? E? i forgot but its the latest one) to one of the pros? i mean what does it offer that the tnhen doesn’t?

  9. dan

    EY, guys i got a few questions, why my psp can’t read the cso file even i already had a CFW PRO-B9 on my PSP 300,

  18. TriKdOut

    This is one of the reasons why i installed CFW on my PSP a month after i bought it.

    Dang, that MK4 isnt working for me! :p

  19. bac401

    does it work with half byte loader

    • wololo

      No. Install Pro CFW and you shouldn’t need HBL anymore, at least for most use cases.
