OpenSplit v1.0 to Split 4+GB Files for Open Manager PS3 Arrives
Here is OpenSplit v1.0 to split 4+GB files via PC for Open Manager on the PS3 followed shortly by version 1.1 which includes some bug fixes and version 1.2, and deanrr shared a similar app called Split4G which he detailed HERE.
This little tool lets you split the BIG files (bigger than 4GB) in your games on your PC, so that you can use them with Open Manager 1.0 for the ps3.
* How do I use it? *
- Press "(->) Split BIG files to .666xx" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for BIG files and split them according to Open Manager 1.0. All game folders that contained BIG files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "BCESXXX" to "_BCESXXX")
- Press "(<-) Merge .666xx files to BIG" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for .666xx files and merge them to BIG files. All game folders that contained .666xx files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "_BCESXXX" to "BCESXXX")
- Check the checkbox "Don't delete splitted BIG / merged .666xx files" if you want to keep both BIG and .666xx files.
You can choose your whole GAMEZ directory, then all games will be processed.
I have attached the program to this post.
An important issue: PLEASE DON'T TRY TO MERGE .666xx FILES ON A FAT32 HDD! There files can't be bigger than 4 GB! You will only encounter errors!
Another issue: IF YOU START A SPLIT/MERGE PROCESS, ALWAYS WAIT UNTIL THE MESSAGE "All jobs done!" APPEARS IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY PROBLEMS!
Emm. It's not for use on the ps3. It's a java executable (.jar cross platform) for the PC! On the ps3 the Open Manager does splitting and merging. Unfortunately I can't modify my own post any more, so I can't correct it.
Beat me to the 1st post!!! Somehow just to say Thanks I got the first post - What a retard!!! Keep up the good work guys. We all appreciate you. You'll definitely get more out of me then "Thanks I got the first post!!" LOL
No problem and +Rep again... also a little "tip" in case you didn't know (most users don't) but when you use the "@" symbol in replies (even quoted ones) they are sent to the moderation queue as our detection system sees them as possible spammers since they often include their e-mail address containing that symbol.
This means they won't show up until a Staff member reviews them, so long story short it's best to avoid that character when at all possible in posts.
