I do not have much experience with emulation, but I have read a few articles and watched a few videos on using RPCS3. Surprisingly (to me), I have been able to emulate a couple of my games (exactly two).

These two game files, though, are not ISOs. The other game I have in my library is an ISO file and it is the only one I cannot seem to get to work; God of War 3.

I see from the 'compatibility list' that it runs 'okay' (some people even have it as 'perfect.' My rig is pretty beastly, so I think I have the capability to run it), but I just can't even seem to get it to boot.

Like I mentioned, I have two other games that work no problem, but I can't get God of War 3 to work and I am wondering if it is because it is an ISO. I have read that others have had issues with this game and that there are certain files that 'work' and others that do not seem to. From what I have gathered, the file I have is the 'good' one. 

But I am wondering if there is something different I have to do with ISOs. I have read a number of posts about the subject and having to mount the ISO (among other methods). However, much of what I have read is relatively old (three or four years) and I do not know if that information still applies today. 

So, my question is basically what do I need to do in order to get an ISO file to play? The folder that it generates upon being zipped seems similar to my non-ISO files, so I am not quite sure why it isn't working.  

For the most current version of RSPC3 is there a particular method to get them to play?

Thank you for your help and patience.

RPCS3 does not read ISO files, you need to dump your game as JB folder.

Thank you. Is there a recent tutorial or something on YouTube perhaps that shows how to do this that you would recommend? I can find videos on converting JB to ISO, but not the other way around, it seems.

By the way, I saw your Discord name written in Katakana. 実はオレは今日本に居ます。フレックスビーは日本語ができますか?

Just mount the ISO and boot it from there, on new versions of RPCS3 I would expect it to work
