Games compatible with OpenIdea ISO loader

This is a compatibility list for PSP users using OpenIdea ISO loader. If you’re on the following firmwares 6.20 TN-A Hen, 6.20 TN-B Hen, 6.20 TN-C Hen then be sure to check out this post for updates. If you’re on , 6.31 Hen, 6.35 Hen, please wait for a proper release on your firmware version.

The OpenIdea ISO loader a plugin by Dridri that allows you to run PSP games straight off your XMB. It is currently at version 0.2 Beta 3 (although for some reason, it still shows up as 0.1 Beta 3 on my PSP), this makes for some incompatibilities with some of the older (and at times newer) games. This post is a compilation of games that either work or don’t work with the OpenIdea ISO loader for the PlayStation Portable. Most of the updates you’ll be seeing are from the comments by other PSP users so you’ll be getting the most up-to-date information possible.

    im using iso tool right now and makes icons for the games or eboots in xmb, im not sure how iso loader works, so what will happen if i try it on a 635 pro 300x and the iso tool xmb created icons are already in xmb? also i see iso loader puts things in the system folder, is this dangerious?

    Okay. PSP 3001, 6.20 OFW, TN-C HEN.

    Games tested using both cso and iso format:

    Dissidia Final Fantasy: Works
    Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker: Works
    Ultimate Ghosts ‘n Goblins: Works
    Final Fantasy 1 20th Anniversary Edition: Works

    Tried loading cso files for all of these, and all it did was take forever to get the information. It even forgot that I had other games loaded on the memory stick!!

    Oh well. Only thing that sucks is that I don’t have a large memory stick 🙁 (only got 2GB) and little CSO support

    • madeiRa February 10, 2011 Reply

      ssup link?

      Dissidia didn’t work for me!! 🙁

      I have a 3001 Slim with 6.20 hen TN-C

      • adventure_of_link February 11, 2011 Reply

        Hmm. Dissidia’s been working fine for me; you might want to make sure there’s no disk in the UMD drive or try another driver.

        • adventure_of_link February 11, 2011

          Oh and good job with the lists dude! I only tested the games I have, so…

    PSP 3001, 6.20 OFW running TN-C HEN..

    Just tried Smart Bomb for PSP, and it hangs at the loading screen.

    Who knew that a small, 113MB game made in 2005 would have problems here, go figure. -shrugs-

  6. banban February 6, 2011 Reply

    pls update the list…… this very helpful

  7. adventure_of_link February 6, 2011 Reply

    Okay. Got some updates.

    PSP 3001, 6.20 OFW, TN-C HEN

    Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII works with this plugin.

    As a heads-up, try not to sleep mode an ISO this way for too long (say more than 5-8 hours) or else it’ll black screen and you have to reset the PSP. It happened to me earlier while letting Dissidia sleep.

  8. adventure_of_link February 6, 2011 Reply

    OK it’s me again.. as a heads-up, REALLY try to not use sleep mode when possible. I let Crisis Core FF7 “sleep” for several hours, blank screen. Restart PSP, reload HEN, reload CCFF7, put it to sleep for no more than 30 seconds, got a black screen.

    you should know my hardware config by now. 😛

  9. adventure_of_link February 6, 2011 Reply

    Popping in to say that Final Fantasy 2 20th Anniversary Edition also works…

    It should also be of note that not even Prometheus will load the Smart Bomb ISO (I know the comments are for the OpenISO loader, but figured I’d drop this bit of information..)

  10. adventure_of_link February 8, 2011 Reply

    Hey there. adventure_of_link again.

    Just popping in to say that while trying to exit my game via the home button, it hung until the PSP ultimately shut itself off.

    • adventure_of_link February 8, 2011 Reply

      BTW I forgot to mention I was playing Dissidia Final Fantasy, however like with the lockups on all the other games, it acts up on one, there’s potential for the others too, right?

      That being said, Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops also works with this plugin.

      • sylv3rblade February 8, 2011 Reply

        Hmm I’m gonna update the links for the beta 4 in a bit so that may help out with the lockups

        • adventure_of_link February 8, 2011

          Thank you!! can’t wait to try it! my version is actually 0.1 beta 4 (or so that’s what it says when I want to change my driver -shrugs-)

        • adventure_of_link February 8, 2011

          Killer. Thanks for the new version. Except I tried playing FF2 on the new version (it actually says 0.2 beta 4 this time :D) using the m33 driver and put it to sleep. It freezes and doesn’t goto sleep. Using the NP9660 driver, the loader just crashes; doesn’t even attempt to load a game. The NP9660 crashes with every game I’ve tested.

        • adventure_of_link February 8, 2011

          OK. Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops crashed upon exiting the game using the OpenIdea driver. The Legacy driver in this version seems to be pretty solid (no pun intended).

          Legacy driver seems to play nice with sleep mode and the home button exits, so far. I’ve only tested FF2, Dissidia FF, and MGS: PO up till now.

          Oh yeah, forgot to mention that Smart Bomb is 110% working with the Legacy Driver as well. It also happens to be the only driver that it’ll work with; the others just crash and burn upon loading. I also don’t know if this is related to the new plugin version or not, but when I copied a new iso file to my memory stick, it wouldn’t show up until I restarted vsh.

          that being said, is there a way to set the Legacy driver to the default driver, so I don’t have to keep resetting it?

        • sylv3rblade February 9, 2011

          You can remove the other .prx files inside the OIP folder like oi_march33.prx and march33_620.prx to make the legacy driver default (as it’ll be the only thing that OIP will load) but I doubt it’ll be stable. :/ Dridri should really brand OpenIdeas as an Alpha though.

        • adventure_of_link February 9, 2011

          Yeah, given the plugin is designed to load the m33 driver by default, I don’t think it’d be very stable. 😛

    Hey. just popping in here with an update. Turns out if you let the PSP sleep long-term while using the legacy driver it’ll actually reboot the PSP instead. -shrugs-

    Hey link! Suup?

    What about stanbymode? It simply turns off!
    The Prometheus ISO Loader has the same compatible game list as this one, but u have to open the app and what not and there’s no legacy driver.

    Let’s just wait and hope that there will be a new openidea iso loader with the TN-D HEN will be alot better. Anyway, got Kingdom Hearts running awesomely! I’m entertained for a while now! 🙂

      I agree that standby mode for OpenIdea can be problematic :/ It turned off while I was unlocking stuff in Project Diva.

        also happened to me while playing MGS: PW, had to go out for a minute ant out my PSP on standby after defeating a chopper and when I came back and turned it on it just stayed on black screen

    And total noob hasn’t released anything yet!!

    • sylv3rblade February 25, 2011 Reply

      Total_Noob is holding releases because of what happened with 6.35 Pro-A4. Since Team Liquidizigong was able to push through with 6.35 Pro-B, we’ll probably see 6.20 TN-D in a few days.

  28. madeiRa February 25, 2011 Reply

    I bet Total_Noob is just waitng and watching and working in the shadows… Know what I mean? I bet TN-D is gonna have huge updates! ;D At least I like to think so… And I sure hope the diidri (Openidea ISO Loader Programmer) Does another version with standby supporte. Oh yeah sylv3rblade, I’ve posted some of our compatible games list on another forum wich I also support, Hope you don’t mind… It’s a brazilian forum. They were stuck at TN-B! LOL! ^^

    • sylv3rblade February 25, 2011 Reply

      no prob on the list madeiRa :).
      I do hope we get updates for OpenIdea soon 🙂 Either that or we stick to using the old m33 prx file for compatibility.

  29. madeiRa February 25, 2011 Reply

    Yupperz! BTW, have you ever used the openidea driver for anything? Tis hopeless for me… Legacy driver is slow and NP Sony driver I think I’m using with GOW: Ghost of Sparta but the movies seem slow… Oh well… Still, It’s a heck of a list we got there ^_^

    I Just read the news… No TN-D … Gr8… Guess I have to go PRO! =\ Dangit! Now how do I update to 6.35?

    • adventure_of_link March 2, 2011 Reply

      Simple.

      1. update your PSP to 6.35 OFW (Google for it)
      2. delete the TN-C HEN and all plugins (including the openidea iso loader, unfortunately); to be sure I’d backup all homebrew, pictures, music, etc then format your memory stick
      3. download the PRO-B installer and fast recovery tool and install onto your PSP
      4. Have fun! =)

    have you got Pro-B Link? That’s why u haven’t frequented this thread?
