To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.50:

NOTE: From this version, I will be partially retired. Or put in another way: I will not be as active as before (only in case of "extreme" need I would work on it) and I hope that the inclusion of the new GUI other people are encouraged to continue to maintain and improve the program:

I have done everything possible to provide all the tools and materials needed, but now it's time to take a break and do other things and maybe others take over if they want to continue to implement things.

1) Added a separate loader and isolated application itself in principle from the LIBFS patched, but this could open other possibilities.

2) Added a status check of Network and warning messages in case of error, for FTP

3) New GUI format "slide icons" accessible "Global Options" (Global Options) -> "Change Current GUI" (Change Current GUI), with new colors with smooth gradient background.

New Controls:

  • DPAD LEFT / RIGHT: move one position to the left or right
  • L1/R1: Scroll up and jumping a number of positions within the icons
  • DPAD UP: Toggle between favorites / Games
  • DPAD DOWN: Changes to Games, managing change games as follows (shown in the screen below-center):
  • PS3 - PSX: Displays all the games in alphabetical order
  • PS3> PSX: Displays first PS3 games in alphabetical order and then PSX equally (ie, separating the groups and shows first PS3)
  • PSX> PS2: Sample first PSX games in alphabetical order and then the PS3 in the same way (ie, separating the groups and shows first PSX)

The settings are stored: note that it is not the same as pressing L3/R3

Favorites Mode

  • They are still 12 and you can add / remove or exchange options positions from holding down L2 and then TRIANGLE

Information Display

  • Top - Left: Favorite Mode / Games (set current / number of total games)
  • Top - Center: Game Title
  • Top - Right: Devices connected. In Yellow which contains the current game
  • Bottom - Left: In the inset shows the configuration of the games, if you need a BR disc, Direct Boot with an arrow, BD Emu or LIBFS. Below, date / time of the system.
  • Down - Center: management mode icons as described above.
  • Bottom-Right: active FTP Server icon, temperature data, etc.

Reloading Icons

12 remains the maximum although the slider samples from 5 to 7, depending on the width of these (covers in multiMAN format, fit 7). Reload is improved by assigning icons in priority first from hdd0, then from USB and finally from BDVD in background.

The system has been designed considering the speed and agility when you're searching for a game.

Reinstall IrisManager and go back into the fan control tool, set the fan mode to [SYSCON] and confirm it with [Set Settings] and it should go back to systems default fan speed.

StanSmith, try PS3ITA Manager as it has grids 6x4/4x3 as options under 'Setup Video' menu.

apparently the PS3ITA Manager port of this has configurable fan settings, i haven't been brave enough to try it but that may help

I have to use this to FTP files, for some reasons I can with this, but MultiMAN stopped allowing FTP connections, but I still use Multiman for loading my games with, as Iris only lists a couple of games, and doesn't find the rest.

I tried it and did not like. Is not userfriendly. With the start, the fan speed is raised. I tried some settings but do not get. Once i remove the program, the fan speed was still too high... Do not recommend !

I'm still waiting for the update that brings more icons to the screen. The 3x4 is not enough when you have heaps of games and want one near the middle of the list. Thats why MultiMan is still a little better, more icons on the screen at a time so less pages to scroll through.

Anyone else getting the yellow flashing led when they use IrisManager now? I load it up and the led goes from green to flashing yellow.
Is there a way to turn off the fan control in Iris? I bet thats whats causing it.

What was the last version before the fan control was installed? I want to use that version till its fixed.

I posted in the spanish forum where he is and he said he wanted to put that option in. I should go back and ask again to remind him.
