added rename-option to extract game icon and "PARAM.SFO" from ISO(s)
some bug fixes
Note: Keep in mind game icon and "PARAM.SFO" has always file attribute HIDDEN
Additional Note: While i was working on adding the function to extract "PARAM.SFO" and "ICON0.PNG" i had problems with 3 of my ISOs. Nothing was extracted from these 3 ISOs, while all the others did fine.
I then tried to open these 3 with 7ZIP and winRAR and both gave me an error that ISO is corrupt.
The ISOs were created TeamCobra's "genps3iso" a while ago. May be this tool is faulty. I've re-dumped the 3 games and converted them now with Estwald's "makeps3iso" using PS3 ISO TOOLS and now everything seems to be ok.
Conclusion: Try to extract "PARAM.SFO" and "ICON0.PNG" from all of your ISOs and check if they are all there. It might not be a 100% test.. but it's better than nothing i guess.
Update: Version 1.6B - Jan. 09 2014
UPDATE to Version 1.6B - PS3 ISO TOOLS Version 1.6B by Rudi Rastell

PS3 Game Updater v0.90, v0.91 and v0.92 By Rudi Rastelli Out
Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 developer Rudi Rastelli has made available PS3 Game Updater v0.90 followed by v0.91, v0.92, v0.94 and v0.95 revision updates with details below.
To quote: Hi ! I've made a small tool to create and manage a ps3-games-updates-archive. May be someone else finds it useful too. Here's the README for a quick overview:
PS3 GAME UPDATER V0.9 by Rudi Rastelli
TeamSOS for Allunpkg
DeLiGht for psn_package_npdrm
aldostools for game-database
Obtain PS3 game update(s) by simply selecting a game in one of it's 3 usual formats (PKG / ISO / Folder).
Aborted downloads will be resumed
Already downloaded not outdated game-updates will be skipped
Outdated game-updates will optionally be deleted
The update-files(*.pkg) get well readable names... thx aldostools database
In Normal-Mode you can select which game-updates to download or not
Batch-Mode to download all updates for all(or selected) games of a game-archive
PKG-Extractor via 'Extra'-menu (should be able to extract any "*.pkg"-file... not even update-files)
Hopefully self-explanatory... read the tool-tips
Updates will be stored to the folder u've selected on 1st start... You can change that folder via 'Extra'-menu. This folder is kind of an game-updates-archive. If you don't select anything here a "MyPS3GamesUpdates"-folder will be created and used inside progam-folder
Using the "Delete outdated Updates"-option in batch-mode allows you to clean up your game-updates-archive and keep it up-to-date. Tip: To "clean up" only: Activate batch-mode -> Select your game-archiv -> Select NO game -> [Download]-Button
If database (database.txt) isn't there for ISOs and folders the game-name from "PARAM.SFO", for PKGs the name of "*.pkg"-file and
for manually entering the GameID the GAMEID itself will be used.
In batch mode select a game-archive-folder. E.g ".../GAMES/", ".../PS3ISO/", ".../MyPSNGames/" etc etc
Extracted PKG-files will be stored in a folder with same name and at the same directory as the PKG-file
Because this is the 1st version, which has some problems 4 sure, I would be lucky to hear about any bugs you'll find and to get suggestions for improvement.
Update #1: Changelog v0.91:
Added batch updates download from a selectable text based game list
Tip: To be able to scan games (folder/iso/pkg-format) on the internal ps3 hdd i recommend having any ps3-ftp-server running and using NETDRIVE to mount internal PS3 hdd as a drive in windows explorer.
Update #2: Changelog v0.92:
Now using Pkgview to extract pkg-files (to avoid virus-warning some anti-virus-programs gave on "unpkg GUI.exe")
Update #3: Changelog v0.94:
Bug fixed, which prevented that Updater from finding all available updates
Updater does not create empty folders for games without updates
Scans deeper now... means you can have more subfolders in your game archive
Scan of installed PSN games in "/dev_hdd0/game/" now supported
Update #4: Changelog v0.95
Fixed the bug which adds "INCOMPLETE_" to filenames even when the download isn't incomplete
PS3 ISO Tools v1.91B for PS3 ISO Converting By Rudi Rastelli Out
Following up on his previous releases, today PlayStation 3 developer Rudi Rastelli has made available PS3 ISO Tools v1.91B followed by v1.94B, v1.941, v1.95B and v1.97B for PS3 ISO converting with details below.
Latest "makeps3iso", "extractps3iso" and "patchps3iso" included
Option to allow some special Characters, like 'TM' or '(R)', in ISO-names (WARNING: Doesn't work with 'webMAN' but works with 'multiMAN' or 'IrisManager' as far as i can tell)
Shows log file after conversion/extraction for a quick check if everything goes well
Check for insufficient free disk space on target drive
Quick Update v1.91b: Added Check for insufficient free disk space on target drive
Various bug fixes
Include latest makeps3iso, extractps3iso, patchps3iso
"PS3 ISO TOOLS" is an all-in-one tool for a complete PS3-ISO handling and contains:
ISO-Generator to convert PS3-Folder-Format-Games 2 PS3-ISO-Format-Games (splitted big-files will be joined)
ISO-Extractor to convert PS3-ISO-Format-Games 2 PS3-Folder-Format-Games (big-files will be optionaly splitted)
ISO-Splitter to split single PS3-ISOs for use on a FAT32 device ("*.iso.0", "*.iso.1", ...etc)
ISO-Joiner to join splitted PS3-ISOs into single PS3-ISOs
ISO-Modifier to rename single or splitted PS3-ISOs according to game-info found in "PARAM.SFO"-file to hide/un-hide parts of splitted ISOs ("*.iso.1", "*.iso.2", ...etc) to extract and save "PARAM.SFO" and "ICON0.PNG" as "[ISO-name].SFO" respectively "[ISO-name].PNG" within ISO-folder
ISO-Patcher to patch single or splitted PS3-ISOs to a lower firmware version (down to 4.21)
Pretty self-explanatory... read the tool-tips
You can batch-convert all of your PS3-Folder-Format-Games, when you select your game-archive as source-folder(eg "X:\GAMES" or "X:\GAMESZ")
All other tools, with the exception of ISO-Patcher, support batch-operation as well. Just multi-select the ISOs you like to process.
ISO-names will NOT contain special ASCII-characters 0-31, 126-255 and also NOT /\:*?"<>| ... This is to avoid problems with webMAN (You can allow usage of special ASCII-characters 126-255, like 'TM' or '(R)' in "ISO-conversion-Options")
After conversion/extraction a log-file will be shown, which compares size and number of files
While converting to ISO-format "PARAM.SFO" and "ICON0.PNG"(Game-Icon) will be placed (hidden) as "[ISO-name].SFO" and "[ISO-name].PNG" at target-folder. If you use webMAN copy these 2 files(per game) to "/dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp/". This will save you the effort to mount each game at least once to make webMAN display it's game-icon.
Aborted batch-conversions could be continued. Already finished conversions will be skipped.
Estwald for "makeps3iso", "extractps3iso" and "patchps3iso"
Sry... V1.94 has some debug-code inside... Here is clean version.
Considers now that 'PS3UPDAT.PUP' will be excluded from the ISO (4 more details see Readme)
Now patches Game-ISOs that need firmware>4.50
Note: There seems to be a problem that on some systems ISO will not be renamed after conversion. I assume an incompatibility with some anti-virus-software. But i was not able to reproduce this behaviour on my PC.
Therefore i've added some lines of debug-code in the current version. If you get error-messages immediately after conversion pls tell me here or via pm. And pls, if possible, try again with your anti-virus-software disabled.
Changed 7z to a more stable version (previous version caused a crash on some pc systems.)
Fixed a bug which causes wrong display of number of files being patched, Old version patches the correct number of files, but it reports "4 files patched" while in fact 24 files files were patched (just an example)
