Supposedly, without a mod chip, it lets you play import of backup PS1 games on your PS2.

You boot the Breaker Pro, then you open the tray to swap discs, then you boot the PS1 import/backup.

Sounds attractive...or, too good to be true?


Thanks,

I've used it for PS1 imports... you don't need a modchip but you need to be able to open the PS1 lid or the PS2 tray without alerting the system. You can use a spring/pencil eraser to hold the PS1 lid sensor down and use a flip top lid or slide tool to open the PS2 tray without the system 'knowing'. (I've never tried on a PSOne or PS2 Slim so I don't know how to transparently swap discs on those)

It doesn't work properly for PAL games, I've got one.

It's a hacked version of the homebrew program Import Player on a pressed CD that boots without the need for a mod chip.

You can do the same thing (disk swap) with certain CD PS1 versions of the Gameshark/Codebreaker/Action Replay.

When it first came out one big selling point was the 99 minute TOC it had, which you could use in conjunction with the PS2 Swap Magic disks to play certain DVD rips that were on 99 minute CDR's that wouldn't normally load (versus regular 74/80m CDR's.)

Thanks--I already have a PS1 with a mod-chip installed. I'm looking to de-clutter by ridding myself of the PS1 (and its many controllers & cables & multitap & such) & stick with just the PS2 to play all my PS1 games.

Thanks,

I have a few cheat devices, mainly the GameShark and the Pelican one, that can boot imports as well. All you need to do is load the device, go to section that plays music CD, play the same CD while still inside the drive and immediately stop. Then swap the disc withough the machine knowing you did (hence the spring and cardboard, depending on your console) and it would play.

I also have a PS-X-X-Change or whatever it is called which does the same thing.

Note however that PSOne games that have multiple CDDA tracks for in-game music (like Doom), will not play properly. In most cases, you play the game without any or most background music.

I never understood why this happens, perhaps something to do with each game having a different ID method or TOC?

That's not really a good idea since the PS2 can't play all PS1 games.

That being said, depending on how much you want for it, you might have a taker right here...

Thanks for all of the replies.

I've messed around w/ the Breaker Pro for a bit & have had decent (not perfect) results.

I've booted & played (briefly):
Asteroids (US CD-R)
Deep Freeze (JP orig)
Hyper Crazy Climber (JP orig)
I.Q. (JP orig)
New Japan Pro Wrestling (JP orig)
Uno (JP orig)
Zero Divide 2 (JP orig)

These games have issues on my PS2 w/ the Breaker Pro disc but played fine on my modded PS1:
Crazy Climber 2000 (JP orig): boots & can navigate menus & can play classic mode, but the normal game is uncontrollable--player just moves randomly--no control at all
Mobile Suit Z-Gundam (JP orig): boots some then goes blank...


Any ideas? I found an incompatibility list, but it seems to cover only US releases: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_games_incompatible_with_PlaySt ation_2

I'm using a "fat" PS2, model # SCPH-30001 R.


Thanks,

Haven't there been people offering USB key's which allowed you to play imports? Or was that just allowing you to play off a USB hard drive, and only on a slim?

If/when I figure out how to get my PS2 to play all my PSX games, I'll certainly sell my modded PSX & accessories.

Thanks,

Playing any ps1 backup on any ps2 console correctly

What you need is:

1. no Modded Ps2 or ps2 slim , old one , new one any kind any version.
a. for normal Ps2 you need a slide tool which is necesery to open tray for disk exchange without alerting the system.(you Tube)
b. for ps2 slim you need special or home made 3 plastic pins, tools to switch on the buttons. (to avoid alerting the system agian , You Tube)

2. Ps2 memory card ( + ps 1 memory card for playing ps 1 games)

3. Swap Magic ps 2 coder (any version)

4. free software MC Boot (google)

5. software Ulaunch elf - ULE v4.28 ( this is root software to launch other data on your Playstation 2 .elf files and to acces your Pendrive) (google)

6. Psx Launcher.elf File (google)

7. Pendrave , any USB storage for data

8. Old Software Breaker Pro for Playstation 1 (google) , this software can be ripped on PC Hard dive from Original CD , but everybody have a problem with burning this to a cd.
All Becouse after Ripping to drive this image file is recoded and its larger than CD its about over 1GB. so Normally will never burn this to a cd, But there is a way. ( You must burn this to a cd , not DVD)

9. Original Ps1 Disc Game with small TOC ( game data size like 50 - 80 mb not higher than 100 mb , ps 1 demo disc or ps 1 short game)

10. Clone Cd software (this one with sheep image) and blank cd

11. Software to make and burn dvd image ( Ultra Iso , Nero , Alcohol) and blank dvd disc

12. BIG Patience.




How to do it:

First you need to make DVD image with U Launch Elf Ule 4.28,
Downloaded Ule 4.28 should have other files needed for full image DVD, you just put all files to make DVD Data Image using Nero or Ultra iso software.
Files ahould be like this : Dummy , System.cnf , Ule
Or simply download entire image of Ule and just burn your DVD (uLE v4.28 boot DVD ISO)

Now copy YOur MC Boot installation files Boot.elf and other files to Your Pendrive and add next to them Psx Launcher.elf
Start your Ps2 console, put Swap magic and connect your Pendrive to ps2.
when swap magic will ask for a cd after recoding put Your BUrned DVD with ule.
YOu should se an Ule program .
Now through Ule open your Pendrive, click "Mass" then you will be able to locate and launch MC Boot elf files from your pendrive.
Launch MC Boot.elf or Boot.elf to install MC Boot. when you cant acces your Pendrive reconnect him or restart console.

Now when you Have MC Boot installed copy THis PsxLauncher.elf to MC storage (memory card) Using ULe again.
If Your MC BOOT is Installed corectly you can now acces to him through Your Ps2 Browser.
Now start YOur MC Boot Normally and Configure your hot key/s at YOur Game Pad, choose one hot key to start this PsxLauncher.elf from Memory Card (MC)
Then when you start ps2 you simpply click button and program PsxLauncher will start.
(YOU can load psxLauncher.elf normally through Ule from your pendrive)

TIme for Breaker Pro to be Burned.
YOu will use Clone CD ( this with sheep picture)
Start program locate your Breaker image who has over 1 gb data, put blank cd and start burning. Program will say its too big file but you click ok anyway.
after some time when process will be at about 80% you will get error " Burning failed", but dont worry you got your Breaker burned correctly.

Last step , Important .

YOur original ps1 game must be same color system like breaker pro
which means both must be PAL or NTSC
NOw YOu need to Use this Psx Launcher to play Backup game.
Put original ps1 game this small TOC one and turn on ps2 while holding your hot key, PsxLauncher will start you will see black screen with some small white letters and your game will stop spinning,
THis program need to check only first signature of game cd. then replace to your Fresh burned Breaker Pro and click "x".
Breaker will launch like normal ps1 game with all options Pal/Ntsc that gives you ability to load any ps1 game correctly.

PsxLauncher can be run anytime throught Ule or Mc Boot later.

YOUr ps1 games need ps1 memory card at another slot.



I hope there was some help in this. Thank YOu.
