    Default Extracting a game from homebrew compilation disc

    Hi everyone

    I was looking for the ISO for Giga Wing Generations, and stumbled across an ISO called 'PS2 Shoot em Ups Games Collection 16in1.iso'.

    I loaded the ISO in PCSX2 and confirm that it loads a menu, before loading a game.

    Below is what I extracted from PCSX2's console as it is loading the game.

    Using IsoBuster, I extracted this folder along with the files SYSTEM.CNF and SLPM_626.02 to my PC.

    I edited SYSTEM.CNF as below

    I exported it to ISO, and unfortunately loading the ISO in PCSX2 simply crashed.

    Next, I exported to BIN+CUE format, and it was able to boot in PCSX2 before crashing. In the PCSX2 console, I get the following lines repeating over and over indicating a problem loading SIO2MAN.IRX.

    Download Links:

    Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I think it's against the rules there, since this is technically an illegal ISO
