:arrow: Update: @JabuPL also shared via his YouTube Channel a similar PS2 iSO conversion utility following PSX FPKG v0.2 dubbed PS2 FPKG v0.2 with a demonstration video below:

Download: PSX-FPKG_v02.7z (7.78 MB) / PS2-FPKG_v0.2.7z (9.32 MB) / PS2-FPKG_v0.3.7z (9.61 MB)

From the included ReadMe.txt file: PS2-FPKG v0.2 by Jabu

This app convert PS2 ISO games to fPKG which can be installed directly on PS4.

How to use:

1. Run PS2-FPKG.exe
2. Select the ISO of the PS2 game in "Disc1"
3. Click "Create fPKG" and choose a storage location
4. Install created fPKG on PS4 and play

Optionally you can:
  • change the game icon (Icon),
  • change background graphic when starting the game (Bg),
  • create a multi-disc game (up to 5 iso)
  • add your own config txt,
  • add your own config lua,
  • select the emulator to be used by the game (by default there are 2 known to be most compatible, you can throw more here)
Program automatically adds configs txt (config-emu-ps4.txt), ps3 (gameid_lopnor.cfgbin), lua (gameid_config.lua) if they exist in the application database.
Yes, this application comes with unique ready to go PS2 game configs that will be added automatically!

Known bugs:
  • When choosing some iso files, the program may hang temporarily (in very rare cases even for more than 1 minute). It is looking for the game ID, just wait, it will unhang itself (fix is planned for this).
  • Few games not follow SYSTEM.CNF standard layout, for this games app will fail to find ID (WRC4, some PS2 Demodiscs, homebrew made isos)
  • If program has any problems with creating fPKG, you can try to run it as an administrator, it should help.
How to add more emulators:

Put the folder with emulator files into the "emus" folder, restart ps2-fpkg, new emulators should show up on the list, that's all.

A short demonstration of the program operation can be seen here:

BIG Thanks to Kozarovv for help, and suggestions. Zar for his ps3 configs database. Veritas83 for PS2 GAMEID TITLE database.

These types of apps from known devs will show false positives in A/V programs due to how they're coded, packed, etc.

Interesting errors lol

actually i just got same errors with activision anthology when i tried to add pics so i think it's something to do with the format of the pics looks like this app is very picky about the filesizes it's looking for.
