In this article, I will show you how to convert PSP games to EBOOT format and play them on your Android device using a PSP emulator. You will learn what tools you need, how to use them, and what settings and controls you need to adjust for the best gaming experience. By the end of this article, you will be able to enjoy your favorite PSP games on your Android device anytime, anywhere.


Part 1: Converting PSP games to EBOOT format




Before we can play PSP games on our Android device, we need to convert them to a format that can be recognized by a PSP emulator. This format is called EBOOT.PBP, which stands for Executable Bootable PlayStation Portable Program Binary File. It is essentially a compressed version of the original game file that can be run by the PSP system software.


There are two types of games that we can convert to EBOOT format: PSX games and PSP games. PSX games are PlayStation 1 games that can be played on the PSP with an official Sony emulator called POPS. PSP games are native PlayStation Portable games that can be played on the PSP without any emulation.


To convert PSX games to EBOOT format, we need a tool called PSX2PSP v1.4.2. To convert PSP games to EBOOT format, we need a tool called EBOOT2ISO PSP. Let's see how to use these tools step by step.


How to use PSX2PSP v1.4.2 to convert PSX games to PSP EBOOT




PSX2PSP v1.4.2 is a simple tool that allows us to convert PSX games (also known as PSOne or PlayStation 1 games) to PSP EBOOT files that can be played on the PSP with the POPS emulator. Here are the steps to use it:



  • Download PSX2PSP v1.4.2 from this link. It is a ZIP file that contains the program and some necessary files.



  • Extract the ZIP file to a folder on your computer.



  • Run the program (PSX2PSP.exe) and you will see the interface, which looks like this:





  • Click on the [...] icons and browse for what the program is asking:



  • The .bin (or .iso or .img) file of the game you want to convert. This is the original PSX game file that you can obtain from your disc or from other sources. Make sure it is in .bin, .iso, or .img format.



  • The output folder where you want to save the EBOOT.PBP file. This is the converted PSP game file that you can transfer to your PSP memory card later.



  • The game title and save title. These are the names that will appear on your PSP menu when you select the game. You can use the default names or change them to your preference.



  • The game icon, usually the cover art. This is the image that will appear on your PSP menu when you select the game. You can use the default icon or browse for a custom one. Squared images work best, and you can trim the vertical "PlayStation" text for a better look.



  • A background image. This is the image that will appear behind the game icon on your PSP menu when you select the game. You can use the default background or browse for a custom one.



  • Click on Convert and wait for the process to finish. You will see a progress bar and some messages on the bottom of the program window.



  • When the conversion is done, you will have a folder named after the game ID (for example, SLUS-00001) in your output directory. Inside this folder, you will find the EBOOT.PBP file, which is the converted PSP game file.



How to use EBOOT2ISO PSP to convert PSP EBOOT to ISO file structure




EBOOT2ISO PSP is a simple tool that allows us to convert PSP EBOOT files (also known as PSN games or PS Store games) to ISO file structure, which can be recognized by most PSP emulators. Here are the steps to use it:



  • Download EBOOT2ISO PSP from this link. It is an EXE file that contains the program and some necessary files.



  • Run the program (EBOOT2ISO1_1.EXE) and you will see a simple interface, which looks like this:





  • Click on Browse and select the EBOOT.PBP file that you want to convert. This is the original PSP game file that you can obtain from PSN or from other sources.



  • Click on Convert and wait for the process to finish. You will see a progress bar and some messages on the bottom of the program window.



  • When the conversion is done, you will have a folder named after the game ID (for example, NPUH-10001) in your output directory. Inside this folder, you will find several files and folders, such as DATA.PSAR, DOCUMENT.DAT, ICON0.PNG, etc. These are the files that make up the ISO file structure of the PSP game.



Part 2: Playing PSP games on Android devices




Now that we have converted our PSP games to EBOOT format or ISO file structure, we can transfer them to our Android device and play them with a PSP emulator. The best PSP emulator for Android is PPSSPP, which stands for PlayStation Portable Simulator Suitable for Playing Portably. It is a free and open-source emulator that can run most PSP games with high compatibility and performance.


To play PSP games on our Android device with PPSSPP, we need two things: PPSSPP itself and a file manager app. PPSSPP is available on Google Play Store or on its official website. A file manager app is any app that can browse and manage files on your Android device, such as ES File Explorer or Solid Explorer. You can use any file manager app that you prefer.


Let's see how to use PPSSPP and a file manager app to play our converted PSP games on our Android device step by step.


How to use PPSSPP, the best PSP emulator for Android




PPSSPP is a powerful and user-friendly emulator that can run most PSP games on your Android device with ease. Here are the steps to use it:



  • Download and install PPSSPP from Google Play Store or from this link. If you download it from its website, make sure you enable "Unknown sources" in your device settings to allow installing apps from outside Google Play Store.



  • Run PPSSPP and grant it permission to access your device storage if prompted.



  • You will see the main interface of PPSSPP, which looks like this:





  • Tap on the "Games" tab and browse for the folder where you have stored your converted PSP games. You can use the "Home" button to go to the root directory of your device storage, and the "Parent" button to go up one level in the folder hierarchy.



  • Once you find the folder with your games, tap on it and you will see a list of games that PPSSPP can recognize. They will have either EBOOT.PBP or .ISO as their file extension. Tap on the game that you want to play and PPSSPP will load it.



  • You will see the game screen and the virtual controls on your device. You can use the virtual controls to play the game as you would on a PSP. You can also use a physical controller if you have one connected to your device.



  • If you want to adjust the settings or controls of PPSSPP, you can tap on the "Menu" button (the three horizontal lines on the top right corner) and access the options. You can change things like graphics, audio, system, controls, tools, and more. You can also save and load states, take screenshots, and exit the game from here.



How to transfer the EBOOT or ISO files to your Android device and load them on PPSSPP




To transfer the EBOOT or ISO files that we have converted from our computer to our Android device, we need a file manager app. A file manager app is any app that can browse and manage files on your Android device, such as ES File Explorer or Solid Explorer. You can use any file manager app that you prefer.


There are two ways to transfer the files: using a USB cable or using a wireless connection. Let's see how to do both methods step by step.


How to transfer the files using a USB cable




This is the simplest and fastest way to transfer the files. Here are the steps:



  • Connect your Android device to your computer using a USB cable.



  • On your Android device, swipe down from the top of the screen and tap on the notification that says "USB charging this device".



  • Select "Transfer files" from the options that appear. This will allow your computer to access your device storage.



  • On your computer, open a file explorer window and look for your device name under "This PC" or "My Computer". Double-click on it and you will see two folders: Internal shared storage and SD card (if you have one inserted).



  • Open the folder where you want to store your converted PSP games. You can create a new folder if you want, or use an existing one.



  • Copy and paste or drag and drop the EBOOT or ISO files from your computer to your device folder. Wait for the transfer to complete.



  • Eject your device from your computer safely and disconnect the USB cable.



How to transfer the files using a wireless connection




This is an alternative way to transfer the files if you don't have a USB cable or if you prefer a wireless method. Here are the steps:



  • On your Android device, download and install a file manager app that supports FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server function, such as ES File Explorer or Solid Explorer.



  • Run the file manager app and tap on the menu button (the three horizontal lines on the top left corner).



  • Tap on "Network" and then on "FTP".



  • Tap on "Start FTP server" and you will see some information such as IP address, port number, username, and password. Note down these details or keep them on screen.



  • On your computer, open a web browser and type in the IP address and port number that you saw on your device, separated by a colon. For example, 192.168.1.100:3721. Press Enter.



  • You will be prompted to enter a username and password. Enter the ones that you saw on your device and click OK.



  • You will see a web page that shows your device storage folders. Open the folder where you want to store your converted PSP games. You can create a new folder if you want, or use an existing one.



  • Click on "Upload" and browse for the EBOOT or ISO files from your computer that you want to transfer. Select them and click OK. Wait for the upload to complete.



  • On your device, tap on "Stop FTP server" and exit the file manager app.

FAQs




Here are some common questions and answers about PSP games, EBOOT format, and PSP emulators.


What is the difference between EBOOT.PBP and .ISO files?




EBOOT.PBP files are compressed versions of the original game files that can be run by the PSP system software or a PSP emulator. They are usually smaller in size than .ISO files, which are exact copies of the original game discs. EBOOT.PBP files are also known as PSN games or PS Store games, as they can be downloaded from the PlayStation Network or PlayStation Store.


Can I play any PSP game on my Android device with PPSSPP?




PPSSPP is the best PSP emulator for Android devices, as it can run most PSP games with high compatibility and performance. However, there are some games that may not work well or at all with PPSSPP, due to various reasons such as encryption, anti-piracy measures, or technical issues. You can check the compatibility list of PPSSPP here to see which games work and which don't.


How can I improve the graphics quality of PSP games on my Android device?




PPSSPP has many options to enhance the graphics quality of PSP games on your Android device, such as resolution, texture filtering, anti-aliasing, shaders, and more. You can access these options by tapping on the "Menu" button and then on "Settings". Then, tap on "Graphics" and explore the different options available. You can also use the "Presets" option to choose a predefined graphics setting that suits your device and preference.


How can I save and load my progress in PSP games on my Android device?




PPSSPP has two ways to save and load your progress in PSP games on your Android device: using in-game saves and using save states. In-game saves are the same as saving on a real PSP, where you use the game's own save system and save data is stored in a folder called SAVEDATA inside the game folder. Save states are snapshots of the game's memory that can be saved and loaded at any point during gameplay, and they are stored in a folder called PPSSPP_STATE inside the game folder. You can use both methods interchangeably, but be careful not to overwrite or corrupt your save data.


Where can I find more PSP games to play on my Android device?




There are many sources where you can find PSP games to play on your Android device, such as PSN, PS Store, online shops, or other websites. However, you should always make sure that you own the original game disc or have a legal license to play the game before downloading or copying it. Otherwise, you may be violating the intellectual property rights of the game developers and publishers. dcd2dc6462
