    Mime and Brittany can testify that I spent HOURS working on this last night and I finally found this tutorial that worked for me(it was the 3rd one I tried)

    This was posted by jackleone on and he got it from muratcan on psp-updates.

    Link to materials needed to make Custom Gameboots

    All in one file EXCEPT umdtools

    Badongo free file hosting and image hosting

    What you need:

    1.The Sony UMD Tools-REQUIRED (I think it's illegal to post a link for these, search yahoo)

    2.The MPS to PMF converter
    Loading Lead Generation Page...

    3.The MPS to PMF converter Update 8/7
    Loading Lead Generation Page...

    4.The Virtual Dub Mod video converter Files

    5.MP3 to WAV converter

    6.WinMenc video converter
    WinMEnc we go

    Step 1, WinMenc
    1: Open up WinMenc
    2: Go to add files
    3: Find the video you want to use
    4: Go to load profile
    5: Select PSP AVI profile
    6: Go to the audio tab
    7: Select no audio on the drop down menu
    8: Go to the video tab, and make sure the FPS is 29.970
    9: Go to the batch tab
    10: Select your output folder
    11: Hit encode
    12: Now go back to the audio tab
    13: Select MP3 from the drop down list
    14: Go to the video tab
    15: Select no video.
    16: Now go to batch and encode this.
    17: You should now have two files. The video and sound separate

    Step 2, WAV converter & Virtual Dub Mod
    1: Open up the WAV converter
    2: Go to add, then change file types to all
    3: Find the MP3 from your video
    4: Select output format as WAV
    5: Hit start
    6: That’s the audio out of the way
    7: Now open up virtual dub mod
    8: Go to file , then open video file
    9: Find the video part of your file
    10: Now go to save as
    11: Make sure its going to save as an AVI
    12: And that’s that. You now have the source files ready

    Step 3, Sony UMD Tools
    1: Open up the UMD Stream composer.exe
    2: Go to new
    3: Name it what you want. Click next
    4: Tick the PSP Movie format (for game) bit.
    5: Change the max clip size to 2mb or less
    6: Hit finish
    7: Go to video source
    8: Find your video file made earlier with Virtual Dub Mod
    9: Go to audio source
    10: Find the WAV you made earlier with the MP3 to WAV converter.
    11: Now go to run at the top
    12: Choose encode + multiplex
    13: Hit start
    14: Well done the .mps has been made

    Step 4, .mps to .pmf Converter
    1: Go to My Documents (well yours)
    2: Go to the UMD Stream composer folder
    3: The .mps file is in here somewhere (I forget where exactly!)
    4: Now rename the .mps file to gameboot. (intro if we're talking coldboot)
    5: Put it in the same directory as the .mps to .pmf converter
    6: Run the converter (Click Run Me)
    7: And your gameboot.pmf should be created (intro.pmf if we're talking coldboot)

    Put the Coldboot in your system/intro folder with the other cintro files

    I apologize in advance to the mods if I posted something I shouldn't have, posting any kind of tut is new to me.

    hey Xtra thanks a lot for the guide now i dont have to search like a maniac on the web looking for cintro/gameboot...i really appreciate you sharing all the hard work. I followed your guide and i even made my first cintro (the whole street fighter IV trailer) but the thing is that i have to press a button for it to send me in the psp menu. i was wondering if i did something wrong, how come it doesnt automatically transfer to the menu?

    again thanks for effort in creating this guide
