Snippet from change log:
• Improved download system, to prevent overwriting existing files / downloading wrong file.
• Uses a folder layout to resolve conflicts with same filenames but different file.
• Enhanced range of Playstation Content support, (A bug stopped the program from accepting all file formats, like png)
• Improved stability of the application
• Outputs a Log.txt containing urls captured by the application, to allow you to add the file extension; if you want it to be captured in the download manager / booster.
• Now allows you to change to port the proxy uses by creating a file called port.txt otherise default of 27.
• Fixed bug, where a message keeps appearing on start-up; this will only appear when theres an update and will not display a load of garbage
• Fixed download issue, with files not being saved in the location given in path.txt
• Slight performance improvments by reducing the length of the code for several operations.
Known bug (Not really worth fixing atm, as it fixes it's self):
• When signing in for the first time, you'll get an error; however it should resolve it's self on the second attempt and work first time afterwards.
• iPlayer App Crashes proxy.exe but I think if you remove the file extensions from the ext.txt for the file types you don't want, it should fix it.
Hope you, enjoy the updates; you might need to look at the ext.txt as it depends on which functions you want, as some files cause issues.
Common User use the following:
Playstation Home Users use:
You might find more file types related to applications, in the Log.txt and if you do then simply add it into the ext.txt to use the download manager to handle this file type, remember some file types will cause conflict with applications on the console.

I must apologize for the delay, I had a really hard time getting the files to compile and have been busy studying at University.
The website will no longer be maintained as it's no longer required to launch the download manager, I was able to strip the security features from the program such as IP Authentication which forced people to download from a specific url or the program wouldn't display an error saying 'Download from Official Site!'
Version 4.10 (Version 4.00 was skipped as it was already made but never released, 4.10 contains several changes implemented by myself.)
Here is a download link: http://www.fileswap.com/dl/pwPnF9E3ay/
Also allows me to track download counts, region etc to ensure, everybody knows about the new version.
# Formerly known as Playstation Download Manager 3.97
## Written by Jordan Dyckes (Develio13) who passed away during last year.
### Officially released by myself (Garry Hill) with permission from the developer.
Build Version: 4.10 (Final) - Should last the entire lifespan of PS3.
1. Enabled Anti-Virus scanning features
2. Firmware Blocking (Works for around 3 - 5 Days)
3. View your games / updater (Automatic) - Might be broken.
4. Uses settings.cfg instead of multi-files.
5. Stripped away security protocols used to prevent downloads from other sites, resulting in faster loading times.
6. Random web-browser pop-up removed, wasn't supposed to happen anyway.
7. Improved connection scripts, more stable and slightly faster.
8. Updated proxy coding, better connection between console and pc.
9. Included some new file types
10. Potentially fixed the scheduler (not sure)
11. Reduced dependencies on other libraries.
12. Disabled automatic update checker (for this program, G Hill.)
13. Stripped redundant coding and resources.
14. Improved the speed-limiter for more reliability.
15. Multi-Threading and Memory management has been enhanced.
16. Automatic Dual Proxy mode, for improved console stability.
17. Identifies console updates and pre-downloads, ready for install. (Console must power-on first, should block the update first time; so you can play games online while waiting for the update.)
18. Better segmentation management, to determine between ADSL or Cable - less chance of speed dwindling towards finish.
19. Checked support for Windows 8 (Confirmed / G Hill)
20. Now using pass-through in Dual-Proxy mode to allow iPlayer and Web Browsing (Notes indicate partially broken, not working as designed.)
21. Changed name to P-SEN (G Hill, PSN no longer applies.)
Special Features that remain:
1. Support for over 10 languages, sorry for translation errors.
2. Connection Optimizer (Adapts the download code, accordingly. Tested up to 50 Mbps)
3. Speed Limiter
4. Schedule Time for downloads
5. Speed Monitor in bottom bar
The setup instructions remain the same,
1. Start the P-SEN.exe and allow through firewall
2. Run Internal IP.bat and find your IP Address, preferable to set a static IP on your PC.
3. Under network settings on your console, select custom and when asked for proxy select Yes / Enable then enter your IP Address and port 27 (unless changed in Settings.cfg)
You'll need the following files:
A) Windows Vista or newer.
B) .NET 4.0 (Full)
C) Java (Latest)
Notice: This will be the last release, as I am unable to develop this program due to lack of knowledge in this area; however the progress made by Jordan should enable this application to continue functioning throughout the remaining lifespan on the PS3 and potentially the PS4 as well with a few tweaks such as File Types, though automatic updating would become broke due to the database only supporting PS3.
I hope you enjoy this release, a ton of work went into producing it and a struggle by my silly-self to make necessary changes, compiling the certificates was a nightmare that took over 10 weeks to figure out; but it's done now...
Mr. G Hill.
# I was left the documents by Jordan to complete his work, this accounts details were stored as an encrypted text file; just to clarify that I have permission to use this account and how I gained access for the knowledge of others.
Today I am here to report some unfortunate new's regarding my lifetime friend, Jordan Dyckes who passed away back in March this year due to heart related issue's not further aided by the stress he had undertaken in progressing towards operating a successful company.
I'd also like to note that someone since his death has been using his Username, E-Mail and Business Name and in some instances his actual name as well. This is a disgusting act, and infringement of personal rights; however little can be done about this, but I'd like everyone to remember Jordan for who he was and not the person using his details to mark an appalling reputation upon him.
Within my opinion, this could well be a previous customer of his whom was dissatisfied with the shut-down procedure of his company; they even tried starting a new hosting company with his details and deliberately sabotaged other companies by refusing to pay them and got horrible posts written about him; none of which he has actually committed since he passed away before this had happened.
I have informed companies house and the company will be removed from the active register so nobody can abuse the details in the future and have filed requests with Google in my best efforts to clear his name for him.
With all respect towards his enthusiasm & commitment in providing the best for everyone, always thinking about what other people needed; and sharing it with them for free.
We always went on Holiday each year and spent most our Summer Holidays / Weekends together, making the most of our childhoods; on many occasions he'd offer and pay towards something I'd like, but couldn't afford and never once did he ask me for his money back.
He was truly a friend who you could exchange secrets with and never worry about it, supportive and always gave the best advice to me when I needed it.
So without due course, and without starting to ramble about my childhood with him; I'll proceed with the status of the Playstation Download Manager which he was never able to complete.
I was left with some information, which has allowed me to login into his home computer and eventually locate the source code behind his most popular work: The playstation download manager and so forth have been working day and night this month on attempting to complete a compilation of the code.
However I'm still bewildered by his extent of security taken to prevent others from modifying his work and so forth, I'm working on reactivating a security token which will allow part of the code to run without being downloaded from the official website (which ceases to exist anymore, originally due to funding issues).
Once this has been completed I'm hoping to near a complete build, so version 4.00 can be run without advertisements, machine restrictions or download registration requirements etc.
Please give myself another month, just in advanced and I should have a build ready for uploading; however I cannot promise all the functions will be working / completed as I am not a programmer and can only go by the documentation he has left on his computer.
The Playstation Download Manager 4.00 Alpha will become an unlockable upgrade, as the final release has been delayed until the PS Vita has been released (Due to development to support this new PS Product).
However I felt that people might enjoy some of the following features, to see what is coming:
1) Firmware Update Blocker - Working on OFW 3.70+ with PSN access for up to 2 weeks.
2) Automatic Updates for your games library - Selection isn't quite working, but downloads are.
3) Futher enhanced the reliability and success start-up rates, for those having errors first time.
Please note that this isn't the final product and it might have issues loading on some computers where as previous builds worked fine, as for those who can't get previous builds to work then this version should resolve that.
So by now your asking yourself, How do I start to unlock alpha access?
