To quote: well, as everyone is creating his own fork... I decided to make my own fork.

It is not intended to be a competition entry nor a replacement of any manager. I made this fork just for FUN (and for educational purposes)... Do not expect any new fancy feature... it is basically the same 2.60B (with all the Cobra stuff added by Estwald) with IMHO a better button layout and a couple of cosmetic changes. For respect to the original dev, I didn't use a different name and just added the term "(mod)".

Holding L2 or R2 when the program starts you can go directly to File Manager. Some of the changes are:

File Manager:

  • Select + Start access the File Manager (like multiMAN)
  • L1 / L2 in File Manager scroll by page
  • Left Dir / Right Dir changes to focus to left/right (top/down) panel (formerly L1/R1)
  • Select + O prompt if you want to exit to XMB from File Manager
  • O on the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB
  • Triangle is menu (like in XMB)

Game List:

  • Select + O on the Game List asks if you want to reboot the PS3
  • Triangle is menu (like in XMB)
  • O is cancel (like in XMB)
  • L2 + Start switches between coverflow/game list

I was going to keep it for personal use, but I think someone could find it useful and use the changes that I made to improve the Manager.

Update: Ok, I changed the ID to IRISMAN00.... For the moment I "changed" the name to "Iris MANager (mod)". Obviously the "MAN" in uppercase is a direct allusion to multiMAN (most of the changes were made to resemble it). If someone can suggest a better name... I can change it....

PS. the version with the new name has now 3 GUI modes: grid 6x4 from PS3ITA, the original grid 4x3 and the recent coverflow.
PS2. Although the file name still says "IMANAGER4", the content ID is "UP0001-IRISMAN00_00-VER260BMOD000003"

Changelog 2.60B-1:

Holding L2 or R2 when the program starts you can go directly to File Manager. Some of the changes are:

Buttons / Function

File Manager

  • Start + Select: Access the File Manager (like multiMAN)
  • L1 L2: In File Manager scroll by page
  • Left / Right: Changes to focus to left/right (top/down) panel (formerly L1/R1)
  • Select + O: Prompt if you want to exit to XMB from File Manager
  • O: On the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB
  • Triangle: On the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB is menu (like in XMB)

Game List

  • Select + O: On the Game List asks if you want to reboot the PS3
  • Triangle: Is menu (like in XMB)
  • O: Is cancel (like in XMB)
  • L2 + Start: Switches between coverflow/game list

Changelog 2.60B-2:

  • Added option to disable the integrated fan control utility (it does not try to load the payload)

Changelog 2.60B-3:

This is an unofficial version of Iris Manager 2.60B. This version includes all the nice Cobra features added by Estwald. The changes that I made are mainly related to the user interface (buttons layout are more XMB-like, quick access to File Manager, progress bar when game list is scanned, colors, 3 gui modes, etc.).

It also includes the Payloads for 4.41DEX/4.46DEX/4.50DEX and the grid 6x4 from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ/GAMES_DUP/GAMES_BAD on the external drives.

  • Now scans for PS3 games in the following folders: /GAMEZ, /GAMES, /GAMES_DUP, /GAMES_BAD (external drive)
  • The Yes/No dialogs can be cancelled with CIRCLE
  • Added payloads for 4.41DEX, 4.46DEX, 4.50DEX from PS3ITA (all the credits to Rancid-o / Zz_SACRO_zZ)
  • In File Manager, the O now acts like multiMAN's mmOS (show file menu) (exit to Game List with Select + Start -> same as multiMAN)
  • Now there is a progress bar when games are being scanned
  • Quicker access to the File Manager with L2 or R2 when the program starts (now it does not scan the game list)
  • Exit from File Manager does not scan the game list unless there was a copy/delete/move activity (use R3 if you need to refresh the list)
  • Now it also has mode 6x4 from PS3ITA for a total of 3 modes (coverflow, 6x4, 4x3). (I had many freeze issues with the mode 8x6, so I didn't add it)
  • Changed the Tilte ID to "IRISMAN00" to avoid conflict with Iris (official version).

Changelog 2.60B-4:

  • Auto preview images in FM (.png, .jpg)
  • Support to .ISO.0 (uppercase) in FM
  • Custom ftp commands (SITE SHUTDOWN, SITE REBOOT)

Changelog 2.60B-5:

  • Added auto-launch of PSX ISO if found in /USRDIR/ps1_iso/ (now you can create your own bootable PSX isos on non-cobra CFW or replace the self+eboot in PS1toPS3's USRDIR folder to run it on CFW 4.46-4.50).
  • Fixed bug: ISOs were listed 4 times
  • Improved mount last game (holding L1 when the program starts)
  • Improved PSX ISO split list: now can be cancelled, use UP/DOWN to select
  • File Manager is more responsive, EBOOT and ISOs are listed in green
  • Fixed freeze accessing Game Option from grid 4x6.

Changelog 2.60B-6:

  • Added GUI mode 8x6 from PS3ITA (now there are 4 GUI modes)
  • Added memory card configuration launching IRISMAN and holding L1/R1 when a PSX ISO exists in USRDIR/ps1_iso/
  • More bug fixes.

Changelog 2.60B-7:

  • Fixed a bug that caused an exit to XMB while changing the settings in the GUI modes 6x4 and 8x6.
  • Added a progress bar to Fix File Permissions.

Following up on the previous revision, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.80 followed by IrisMAN v2.80-1 and v2.80-2 Mod from aldostools with the changes detailed 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] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.80:

  • The ISOs now will take the title name from PARAM.SFO (so far took the file name) and also will show the background image of the game in the Options dialog.
  • New support for PSX Cobra / Mamba from "Disc-Less Payload" : works with the same versatility as the old, but adding PSX support PSX for NTFS/EXTx units, thanks to the new plugin that allows you to change up to 8 ISOs of PSX ( unplugging / replugging the device NTFS / EXTx in the latter case to change iso)
  • Changes for PSX in Cobra / Mamba "Disc-Less Payload" mode with respect to the old are:

    1) All Games now use the plugin by default. The games stored in /dev_hdd0 and /dev_usb00x can use the old emulation (PSX payload) selecting "old_emu" or "old_netemu".

    2) To eject/insert a disc, the changes are as follows (remember that only from the Cobra/Mamba plugin in "Disc-Less Payload" mode):

  • If the game is in NTFS / EXTx, you must unplug / plug the USB device.
  • If the game is stored in /dev_hdd0 or /dev_usb00x, it will use the first device found with a FAT partition (device '/dev_usb' ) and if this fails, then it will use the first non-FAT USB device connected (NTFS / EXTx for example). Remember that unpluging the LED will flash.

    3) If the ps1_rom.bin is used and L2 button is held down on the pad when the game is launched, it is also possible to run the rom from NTFS / EXTx without a CD to copy/delete the data from the memory card that is using the game (this is useful for handling Internal_MC.VM1). You must exit from the emulator after finishing, as the old PSX payload used.

    4) Leaving the PSX emulator it is possible to launch the game from the disc, but in doing so, the video will be set to PAL/NTSC depending on the region of your system, and you must select the memory card from the emulator and keep in mind that if the game does not belong to your region, it will freeze.

Changelog 2.80-1:

  • Added changes from official Iris Manager 2.80
  • Added "Download Latest webMAN" under Tools menu (Cobra CFW only)

Changelog 2.80-2:

  • Increased the font size in File Manager
  • Added display of the path for the selected game to Options menu

how do i run ps3 iso games with iris manager?

bigvern1979 inside the RAR of the official Iris Manager, you will find the following archive: patch_tools_libfs_exploreplugin.rar

Follow the instructions found in libfs_notes.txt and explore_plugin_notes.txt

The gamesonic manager already includes these sprx already patched.

If you use Cobra/Mamba, the explore_plugin is not necessary. If you use ISOS or NTFS (that only can play ISOS), the libfs is not necessary either, except for games in JB folder format stored in dev_hdd0.
