    Hi!

    On my Dark Alex 2.71SE-C PSP I play backups of my games from the memory stick, more convenient and portable as all here would agree on.

    One game is not in ISO format, however, and I was hoping somebody here knows if it is possible to convert into an ISO, or if it can be played by some other means anyway.

    The archive containing the game "Worms Open Warfare" has a structure like

    Code:
    PSP
    WORMS_OW
    x
    while a normal ISO rather has this structure:

    Code:
    PSP_GAME
    UMD_DATA.BIN
    Thus, can this be converted into a normal ISO, or you know how to play it in the form it is?

    Thanks in advance!

    That is an old RunUMD format file dump. You can rebuild it into iso but its a pain.

    Thanks for the info! That's very helpful and I'll search around for a solution now that I know where to start! If you have any hints on how to rebuild it into an ISO it would be greatly appreciated!

    this is what your going to need to do:

    Use this universal UMD_DATA.BIN
    http://rapidshare.com/files/35035805/Universal_UMD_DATA.BIN_For_PSP.rar.html

    Then you need to take the files out of WORMS_OW and create a PSP_GAME Directory.

    Inside the PSP_GAME should be:
    SYSDIR> boot.bin or eboot.bin
    USRDIR> all game files
    PIC1 - not needed really
    PARAM.SFO
    ICON0 - not needed really
    PIC0- not needed

    Once you have all the files in PSP_GAME drag and drop it with the UMD_DATA.BIN into UMDGEN4.0 to rebuild the ISO.

    As I said it can be a pain but it is possible.

    Thank you for your help, I managed to build a complete ISO through your guidelines! Unfortunately the game would not work (error: "the game could not be started (80010002)") so I think I need to rip it from the UMD myself.

    Nonetheless, thanks again!

    you may be able to get the game to run if you set your firmware to run the BOOT.BIN of games from the recovery.
