Transferring PS1 emulator saves to a PS3?
« on: December 18, 2013, 01:59:10 pm »
Hello, everyone! :) I may soon be buying official copies of The Legend of Dragoon and Vagrant Story, and I was wondering if there was any way to transfer my emulator .MCR files to my PlayStation 3. I found a topic about it on the pSX emulator forum, but I'm not sure if it's still a valid method or not.

If anyone could help me with this, I'd be very appreciative. Thanks in advance, and have a great day! :thumbsup:

EDIT - I'm going through my posts and I just wanted to confirm that the linked method works beautifully.

There is a way i believe if you convert your .mcr saves as a .PSV format & then transfer it via any USB Flash Drive ;) pretty much it lol i've done this with a Final Fanasty 7 ultimate save mod i'd found on the net ;D

Is the method I linked to safe for that? My PlayStation 3 isn't hacked, so some methods I've found don't seem like they'll work.

No, it doesn't need a hacked PS3 console for them to work. They're free of use & yeah that guide is perfect to know how too :)
