Converting .bin files to EBOOT.PBP files for PSP

Discussion in 'Computer and Gadget Help Center' started by Deleted member 48590, Jun 23, 2016.

  1. I looked around the internet for at least an hour to look for a program or website to convert .bin files to EBOOT.PBP files to run PSP games but most of them have malware or adware or trojans. So I need someone to recommend me0 a legit working converter for .bin files to PSP EBOOT.PBP files.

    So are you trying to convert PS1 games to work on the PSP i'm guessing?

    Use Psx2PSP

    Open the .exe
    Then choose the interface you wish to use (I always use Classic because I find it's a lot easier and gives the same results)
    Select the "ISO/PBP file " dropdown and find the ISO, IMG or BIN of the PSX game you wish to convert.
    Once selected all of the left hand side should be auto-filled for you except the output folder... simply select the folder you would like the completed file to end up in.
    *NOTE: long file names and/or foreign characters may corrupt the data, shorten the Game Title and Main Game title if needed.
    *NOTE: this would be a good time to select OPTIONS and then FOLDER then under "auto-create folder on convert" select create game title folder (this makes it easier to locate your PSX games if you convert quite a few, if you don't tick this it will save the eboot.pbp in a folder named after the PSX games serial number.... and THAT is a faff!!!
    Save the options
    Now... the right hand set of dropdowns allows you to select various images and videos to accompany your game icon. I usually only use the first one "ICON IMAGE" as this is all you need to easily identify your game from the PSP's XMB.
    The files must be saved as stated eg. for the icon image the file must be ICON0.PNG
    NOW.... click convert. this shouldn't take long.... it also compresses the original PSX file... usually around 30% but I've had games that have compressed in excess of 80%!

    Now open the output folder (the one you selected for the game to be saved in after converting), You should see a folder named after the game you've just converted containing a "EBOOT.PBP" file. Keep the EBOOT in the named folder and drag the folder into PSP/GAME of your memory stick.
    eg. PSP/GAME/Crash Bandicoot/Eboot.pbp

    Now start your PSP.... go to game on your Memory stick and your PSX game should be there with the ICON you selected (and any other added pics/movies)

    Once the game is loaded you are able to toggle various options by pressed the home button, such as screen size, disc speed, key config.
    In regards to screen size I find if you select "custom" then holding "L" until the screen goes as small as possible before resizing with "R", this will give you the largest most correct aspect.

    This program will also allow you to reverse the process and extract the EBOOT back into BIN and CUE format, simply select the Eboot, the output folder and the click "Extract ISO"
