    1 Guide:
    1.1 Installation
    1. Download the latest version of the ‘Capcom Play System 2 Emulator for the Sony PlayStation Portable' from NJ's website [Here].

    2. Unzip the ‘*.zip’ you have just downloaded from NJ’s Capcom Play System 2 Emulator site.

    3. Once you have unzipped the ‘*.zip’ file you have downloaded, you should have the following files & folders:

    ROMCNV\ROMCNV_CPS2.EXE*
    ROMCNV\ROMINFO.CPS2*
    ROMCNV\ZIP_CACHE_BATCH_FILE.ZIP*
    4. Now create two folders; one named “ROMS” and another named “CACHE”, and place them inside the “CPS2PSP” folder. You should now have the following folder structure:

    CPS2PSP\CACHE\
    5. Now connect your ‘Sony PlayStation Portable’ to your computer, and set your ‘Sony PlayStation Portable’ to ‘USB Mode’ by going to ‘Settings’ in the PlayStation Portable’s XMB and selecting ‘USB Connection’.


    6. Navigate your way to ‘X: \PSP\GAME\’ and insert the “CPS2PSP” folder into the “GAME” folder. Your ‘Sony PlayStation Portable’s’ memory stick should now look like this:

    X: \PSP\GAME\CPS2PSP\ZIPNAME.CPS2*
    X: \PSP\GAME\CPS2PSP\CACHE\
    X: \PSP\GAME\CPS2PSP\ROMS\
    [Do not disconnect your Sony PlayStation Portable!]

    1.2 ROM Conversion
    (*- ROM zip name)
    [In order for ‘MOST’ Capcom Play System 2 ROMs to work with this emulator they must be passed through a converter in order to get their
    *.cache’!]


    1. Open the folder named “ROMCNV” and run the program 'ROMCNV_CPS2.EXE'.

    2. A ‘Command Prompt’ window should have loaded saying “Please Select ROM file.” and a navigation window saying “Select zipped ROM file.” Locate your zipped ROM file in this window and click open.

    3. Please wait while the converter creates a ‘*.cache’ file for your ROM.
    [This should take about 20~30 seconds or so depending on ROM size.]
    [NOTE: Use a complete ROM set, or the converter will give you an error.]


    4. Once the conversion process is complete press ‘Enter’ to exit. Your ‘*.cache’ should now be in a folder named “CACHE” which is located inside the “ROMCNV” folder.

    1.3 ROM Installation
    1. Now navigate yourself to your ‘Sony PlayStation Portable’s’ drive, and then to the “X:\PSP\GAME\CPS2PSP” folder.

    2. In the “X:\PSP\GAME\CPS2PSP” folder you will see the two folders you created: “ROMS” & “CACHE”. Place your ROM file,*.ZIP’, inside the “ROMS” folder, and then place the cache file,*.CACHE’, you got from the ‘ROMCNV_CPS2.EXE’ program inside the “CACHE” folder.

    Someone posted this site in the cps1 thread before it's quite useful for knowing what games run on what hardware. Here is the CPS2 list http://coinop.org/arcadesystem.aspx/...9-6f37e9ad92c1 I'm not sure if it's 100% but it will give you some idea what games will run with this emulator.

    Yeah, that site tells you what MAME ROMs will run on a CPS 2 Emulator.

    Excellent job! Hopefully, this will stop the flooding of emu newb posts...

    www.cps2shock.com has a more detailed game list, with screenshots...its been down every now and then recently but its a very old site and is reliable...

    also, once the cache file is made and the rom zip files are in the rom folder, you can edit the zip files and remove all files .13 and up....leaving .01-.12...as the cache files are consisted of files .13 and up, and arent needed once the cache is made...will save you TONS OF SPACE.

    nice tutorial btw =)

    Also, I noticed some people asking for cache files on MAC OS X. I think that if you have a MAC you can use DOS Box which will emulate DOS on a MAC. Can someone with a MAC try DOS Box out and tell me if it works, so I can include it in the guide??
