need help with how to pack a ps2 .iso

Post by Snake Plissken » Mon Jan 22, 2018 1:01 pm

How dose one repack a .iso that has been unpacked with 7zip? i have tryed all the compression methods in combination with compression levels when it comes to repacking with 7zip and when i then go to run the newly repacked archive in pcsx2 i get this error message

"File not found. Path IsoFileSystem"

What tool is out there that i can use to pack a ps2 .iso file? thanks for any reply. means alot.

( offtopic: I had this idea after coming across info about getting ps2 games running on ps4 via ps4hen and a emu lib thanks to flatz. the idea is a homebrew platform. i could use a ps2 game like Half Life as the development platform since its files seem to be as modable and in the same structure as the PC version. why not use it as a platform for making our own game, then use flatz method to get it on ps4, effectively giving us a 3d platform to work on for making our own custom video game experience, so far ive just extracted half life's config.cfg and edited it to enable developer menu and suite my development environment for when i do test custom file edits and adding of new assets )

You need cDVDGen to make PS2 ISO's as they are not normal images, Said tool is by SCEI so I can't post it here but give it a google.

"CD_DVD-ROM Generator 2.00"

Good lead. Thank you so much for your info. It seems it's the only tool out there of its kind. I get a error message with cdvdgen when I run it. The error message amounts to the programs incompatibles on 64 bit systems, I'm sure of it. I'll post a pic of the error message first thing tomarrow but it shouldn't matter. I'll have to go out at the end of the week and get it from a pawn shop just for this reason then.

I only have a win 7 64 bit

Seems to be working for me on W10 x64 but I didn't try making anything with it.

I have installed windows 10 just to try it out. I get the same error message that I do in windows 7, when running the application. perhaps there is a key place on the hard drives windows install that the program needs to be running from? ive tried all that I know.

Could be the installer is the problem since the version I have is not "installed", instead I run it from a folder like any other portable program.

A quick google says to try installing in compatibility mode for 98 or XP.

EDIT: here is another possible solution
