PSP Emu Selector – Use Decrypted MINIS2.EDAT with PSP emulator on PS3

Not so long ago I (kozarovv) asked developer mysis about possibility of use decrypted minis2 confito increase game compatibility of the PSP emulator that resides within the PS3. A few days later he responded and gave us patches to make it now a real possibility ti use these configs. Big thanks to @mysis for that! Here is noob-friendly app I created PSP EMU Selector to change PSP emulator version. One is standard cobra patched emu, Second is cobra emu patched to read unencrypted minis2.edat config. Enjoy!

Also, for PS2 emulation on the PS3 (non-bc) be sure to checkout the PS2 NetEmu Selector released earlier in the week

    How to use DECRYPTED MINIS2 with PSP ISO

    • Run app and select “USE DECRYPTED MINIS2.EDAT” then exit app.
    • Go to Remaster Launcher folder, usually dev_hdd0/game/PSPC66820/USRDIR
    • Here you can place your custom config called MINIS2.EDAT
    • File MINIS2.EDAT should be simple renamed txt file.

    Example of MINIS2.EDAT:

    Now simple mount, and run game.
    This will run game in Remaster Mode, with 42MB ram available, and tweak frame buffer (not sure about that). This config allow game 3rd Birthday to run without blue overlay on full screen.

    Available commands for config:

    Available options
