not that easy sadly
If it was that easy don't you think they would have tried to do that already? And why do you think it has been so hard to get the PS3's PS2 emulation to work in the first place?

mikael110, you seems pretty concerned, so I'll be straight. I didn't mention LV2 patching - it's definitely needed. Yes, gameOS wiped out almost completely, but some environment still persists, as well as booting parameters. For example, there's couple of games that requires installing at HDD's special partition, and the paths are not wiped out, but instead holds in memory for launching sake. I'm telling you, cobra team did this somehow, moreover they used almost same syscalls, however they way of lv2 patching is still a mystery.
That wouldn't be easy and I didn't claim to be, though it possibly can be done.
BR, my friend, it's always nice to conversate with concerned people.
yeah I'll agree that it's certainly not impossible, as cobra has proved. I just wanted to express that it wouldn't be as easy as setting up some simple sycall redirects which is what I assumed you meant in your original comment.

Gave a few games a try and the compatibility is exactly the same as far as I can tell, and I can't see it getting better any time soon considering cobra team has been at it for 2 years now. But hey, the more eye's on it the better I guess.
I see it as a good step in the right direction. 100% compatibility might not be on the cards but I do hope for some improvements. @windrider42 It's news here or at least to me and some others. But thanks for your input.
I was bummed to find my newly ps3 bought last week was a 60gb that wasnt backwards compatable & my swap magic from ps2 shows up in multiman but doesnt work thats it but still happy witth my ps3 but i did so much enjoy the ps2 & games my brother decided to take with him to ny many years ago that were mine.
but hey i like to see this progress even though, most see as not useful which is not a surprise to me by now..
i love to see things i forgot about or didnt even see as i do mods for everything i mean everything moddable i do it all & time is against my blindness. on updates for everythingi is time consuming plus bleeding eyes never did anyone good.
so though you see no usefullness in little acts of dev guess what that shows that when you leave a negative comment i remember & build a more understanding of your avatar character which by now is laughable for those with negative words.
& how little you give to the world of creation. though i am big & small to the world my actions are big ripple effect to those who care about progress no matter the content or progress as long as it is a forward step. with support from the users.
im sorry but i can no longer sit by & just let things i could never do no matter how good i think i am just get ridiculed just because of small willed minds.
wow i need to lay off the no sleeping for over 38 hours & too much coffee & beer.
my bad but really please even though im new p[please be respectful even though you have no interest.
I cant use my controller after i started a game :(
I have a SLIM and using KMEAW. Tried with GTA San Andreas, WWF Here comes the pain and Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy
Tried it with cable and without. Tried with both USB ports
I've read similar reports, but nobody is including their model # - that could be a factor.
