Which format do your games have? (.iso ? )

yeah the format for all of my games are .isos


RE: Could not find executable? (android) - Apology11 - 08-06-2013 06:29 PM

one thing you could do is try to open it up with 7zip and tell us whats inside.
Or did you test the games with a real psp already?

when i open it up with winrar, all three of the games i listed have a bunch of other winrar archives inside of it. in each of those archives is an .iso with the game's name and a few letters and numbers after the name. there are also a couple of other files in there also that don't look that important. and yes, i haven't tested these games personally on a PSP, but my cousin gave me these games and he owns a PSP so I'm assuming that he did play these games on a real PSP before.

Open the iso, go to : /PSP_GAME/SYSDIR/
and check if there is a file called "EBOOT".

If not your iso is probably broken/incorrect. If yes which file extension does it have?

yeah, in the many winrar archives, there are .iso files in each one, and they all have the same file name as each other. i opened each of the .iso files and they all have a file in SYSDIR called EBOOT. but since there are more than one iso file with eboot, i dont know which one is the right one. this is really difficult to explain, but i hope you know what im talking about

I get these all the time. Click on the one without any numbers thats what I do.

Maby you can take a screenshot?


RE: Could not find executable? (android) - TheDax - 08-07-2013 08:44 AM

Sounds like the OP has an ISO in a rar file, which of course, leads one to believe it might have dubious origins..however, let's give him the benefit of the doubt for now and say he probably archived it to save space.

PPSSPP doesn't support running games from archives like RAR files, 7zip files, etc. Extract the rar file[s] and just open the ISO directly in PPSSPP.
