    PS2 Developer krat0s has been around in our PSX-Scene forums releasing some nice PS2 Tools for Windows PC user's, The developer also participated in our PSX-Scene Contest this past month with some of his tools. So we had a Q & A session with this homebrew developer and also have gathered some of his recent tools releases seen below. I like like to thank krat0s for his time and contributions.

    Q & A: with PS2 Developer - krat0s
    First of all i would like to thank my friend @atreyu187. He of one of the few who has given me support and big thanks go to him. I will never forget you! You have my word!

    Q.) Will you be adding NGR support to PS2 BIN2ISO as suggested by some members?
    I do not know for the moment, however i will be adding PSX support. I can not assure that they will work 100% however i will do my best. I will take a look later for NGR ,i think it is a simple format. I have this idea because of a user which wanted to convert a PSX game to use it with Cobra on PS3 or something.

    What other tools do you have in store for the PS2 scene?
    Well i have PS2 Studio, currently
