    To quote: Hi ! I've changed and extended my tools for a complete PS3-ISO-handling. Now it's an all-in-one tool for converting, extracting, renaming, splitting, joining and patching.

    Here's the Readme: PS3 ISO TOOLS V1.2B by Rudi Rastelli

    Credits:

    Estwald for "makeps3iso", "extractps3iso" and "patchps3iso"
    aldostools for game-name/game-id database *

    Description:

    "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-Renamer to rename single or splitted PS3-ISOs according to a game-name/game-id database and to hide/un-hide parts of splitted ISOs ("*.iso.1", "*.iso.2", ...etc)
    • ISO-Patcher to patch single or splitted PS3-ISOs to a lower firmware version (down to 4.21)

    Usage:

    Pretty self-explanatory... read the tool-tips

    Notes:
    • 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

    Tips:
    • 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.

    PS3 ISO TOOLS V1.4B Changelog: (1/1/2014)

    Version 1.4B
    • Saves paths selected for JB-format and ISO-format within a config-file
    • Fixed a bug which appears whenever a previous conversion had crashed
    • Updated Readme about behavior in case of an aborted batch conversion.

    Regards
    Rudi

    PS3 ISO Tools v1.5B for PS3 ISO Converting By Rudi Rastelli Out

    Sponsored Links
    Following up on his previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer Rudi Rastelli has updated PS3 ISO Tools to version 1.5B followed by v1.6B for PS3 ISO converting with details below, as follows:

    To quote: Version 1.5B - Jan. 07 2014

    PS3 ISO TOOLS Version 1.5B by Rudi Rastelli

    Changelog Version 1.5B
    • 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

    Change log v1.6B
    • Accurate progress bar for all functions
    • Include latest version of "makeps3iso" (thx Estwald)
    • A few "cosmetic" changes
    • Some small bug fixes

    Regards
    Rudi

    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.

    Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

    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

    Credits:

    TeamSOS for Allunpkg
    DeLiGht for psn_package_npdrm
    aldostools for game-database

    Feature-List:
    • 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)

    Usage:

    Hopefully self-explanatory... read the tool-tips

    Notes:
    • 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

    Regards
    Rudi

    • ISO-Patcher to patch single or splitted PS3-ISOs to a lower firmware version (down to 4.21)

    Usage:
    • Pretty self-explanatory... read the tool-tips

    Notes:
    • 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")

    • After conversion/extraction a log-file will be shown, which compares size and number of files

    Tips:
    • 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.

    Credits:
    Estwald for "makeps3iso", "extractps3iso" and "patchps3iso"

    Changelog v1.941:
    • Sry... V1.94 has some debug-code inside... Here is clean version.

    Changelog V1.95B:
    • 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.

    Changelog V1.97B:

    Changelog:
    • 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)

    Regards,

    Rudi

    PS3 ISO TOOLS V1.97B - by Rudi Rastelli

    • After conversion/extraction a log-file will be shown, which compares size and number of files/folders. An eventually existing firmware-update-file 'PS3UPDAT.PUP' will be left out of the ISO. Because of this log-file reports that the generated ISO about 256MB less than the source game-folder. This is no problem and status in log-file will be 'OK' in such a case.

    • To patch ISOs under Windows 8(.1) click right on "PS3_ISO_TOOLS.exe" and choose "Run as administrator".

    PS3 ISO TOOLS V2.1 (ODE-Compatible)

    Hi ! I would like to introduce latest version of my PS3 ISO TOOLS to the ODE-community. Hopefully it should have all functionality needed to patch newer games to work on a below-actual-firmeware-ODE-system with just a few clicks.

    Here's the Readme:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    I must admit I don't have an ODE myself but found someone who tested it on an 4.53 ODE. So pls feel free to give it a try... but... for safety make sure you have a backup of your games if anything went wrong.

    And... pls report back any bugs or problems you might find. Any suggestions are welcome as well.

    1st off ODE users SHOULD/MUST use 'genps3iso', because i've been told that ISOs created with 'makeps3iso' does not work for them... so atm if you select ODE as ur system in PS3 ISO TOOLS main window 'makeps3iso'-option is grayed out.

    Can't confirm this myself because i don't have an ODE. Are there some ODE-users out there who can confirm this ?

    Regarding the decision between 'makeps3iso' and 'genps3iso' for CFW-users i have to go somewhat further into details:

    While testing with 'genps3iso' i've run across a strange thing i still don't know what i should think about... PS3 ISO TOOLS uses cli-version of 7zip to count number of files and folders inside the ISO and compares it to number of files and folders in source-game-folder as a simple check if everything is ok with the created ISO. On all games i've tried so far number of files were equal, but on a lot of games number of folders were different.

    So... I've opened and/or extraced some of those ISOs with windows-version of 7zip and i've found some folders have empty mirrors 1 level deeper into subfolder structure of the ISO(hard to describe as a non-native-english-speaker).

    Now for the really strange things... If i open and/or extract such an ISO with WinRAR mirror-folders are not there and everything looks like it should. Extracting ISOs with the 'Extract ISO(s)'-function of PS3 ISO TOOLS, which uses estwalds 'extractps3iso', also gives no sign of a problem. And also, which is most important, ISOs work well on PS3 !

    So... what's the conclusion of all this ? Does 'genps3iso' has a bug ?... Or 7zip ?... or both ?... I really don't know. But, as stated above, it will work without a problem on PS3 as far as i can tell and that's what counts from my point of view.

    Regards,
    Rudi

    Finally, from aldostools on the advantages of using ISO format:
    • No need for "BD MIRROR" on certain games. BD Mirror moves the /PS3_GAME to the root of disk and if the manager does not return it to the correct place you can get your game corrupted.
    • Files are read/transfer faster, specially on USB. A single physical file is opened, vs. hundreds or thousands of files on JB format.
    • It's easier to test the integrity of your game (just get the MD5 of your ISO, instead of MD5 of thousands of files)
    • Most managers support ISO via Cobra or Mamba
    • No need to cache files to play games with large files >4GB on FAT32
    • PS3 games are supported only in ISO format on NTFS drives

    It also has disadvantages:
    • It takes time and require lot of free hdd space to convert your all games
    • If you made a split ISO to make it fit on FAT32, you have to rebuild the ISO to make it work on NTFS or with netsvr
    • Once you created the ISO, it's hard to add files to PS3_EXTRA

    My suggestion: convert only the problematic games (the ones that require BD Mirror or that only work as ISO), the games with thousands of files and the ones that have large files.

    I never tried it but Join ISOS(s).. Does that mean if my PS3 folder is split ISO because of over 4gb and it will join to an one ISO, right ?
