Simplicity is a modified version of the well known backup loaded “Iris Manager”. The source version I started with is v2.58 by Estwald. The main reason for this fork was to simplify the GUI and make it look a little more polished. This is my first PS3 Homebrew release so go easy on me and let me know areas I could improve.

Changes from Iris Manager:

  • Background colors have been removed, leaving a simple black.
  • Music has been completely removed.
  • Date, Time, Temp, and Device Space has also been removed.
  • In cover flow mode game sorting by console has been removed.
  • FTP Icon’s color has been changed
  • Other minor GUI changes were made.
  • Navigation controls have been altered (“X” is accept, “O” is back, “Triangle” is game settings, “Square” is not used, “Select” is global settings “, “Start” is not used)
  • The rest stayed the same.

Changes for Simplicity v2.58.1:

  • added back the USB overlay

Other changes will be coming... Thanks you for your support!!

Changes for Simplicity v2.58.3:

  • removed game config*icons*(Direct Boot & Requires Disc) from game selection
  • made adjustments to the grammar throughout...
  • removed unnecessary notifications
  • removed the "Favorites" function
  • changed the font to the default PS3 font
  • added support for DEX versions 4.41, 4.46, and 4.50

Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.93 followed by v2.93-1, v2.93-2, v2.93-3, v2.93-4, v2.93-5, v2.93-6, v2.93-7, v2.93-8, v2.93-9, v2.93-10, v2.93-11 and v2.93-12 Mods by aldostools with the changes outlined 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]

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.93:

  • Updated the ISO tools (PC_ps3iso_utilities_with_src_v1.8.zip) to patch ISO games with required FW version up to 4.60 in patchps3iso
  • By request of Lustar ( GameTDB ) I have introduced a new system to update the covers (covers): Iris Manager now use the User Agent "IrisManager - v2.93" to access that server.
  • In the game updates, the User Agent was changed also to simulate a PC
  • Added support ( for Cobra / Mamba ) for Bluray movies, DVD Video and MKV (using "BluRay Drive" on Showtime).
  • In the "Homebrew" category the homebrews/PSN are listed first and in the new "Films" category (only the movies are listed)

NOTE 1: As a reminder, pressing R3 / L3 you access the various categories.

  • Supports internal (hdd0) and external hard drives in NTFS, EXTx or FAT format.
  • The bluray movies should be in the root folder /BDISO, the DVD movies in /DVDISO (as in multiMAN). Subfolders are allowed and a JPG with the same name as the ISO is supported as cover (e.g. my_film.iso -> my_film.jpg as cover). The display name is taken from the file itself, so it is recommended to edit it if it is too long or non descriptive.
  • The MKV should go in the root folder /MKV. Subfolders are allowed and a JPG with the same name as the ISO is supported as cover (e.g. my_film.mkv -> my_film.jpg as cover). The display name is taken from the file itself, so it is recommended to edit it if it is too long or non descriptive. After selecting a movie, an ISO is created dynamically to associate with the BDVD unit, then Showtime is launched to play it.

NOTE 2: For films the Options menu (accessed with SELECT) is not available.

NOTE 3: We have also made ​​other changes to the code level, such as inclusion in main.h of the tags that define the internal flags for the games / movies. Hope that I have not screwed it up in the translation of the code.

NOTE 4 In principle, the support for /BDISO and /DVDISO was included thinking on those who have a broken the Bluray drive. Since we were doing this, MKV support was added (creating a dynamically ISO) if someone wants to use such films using covers. Showtime can play perfectly these movies with its NTFS support and it also allows you to navigate freely between directories: this option is mainly for geeks.

IrisMAN v2.93-1 Mod Changelog:

This is an "unofficial" version of Iris Manager 2.93 by Estwald/D-Skywalk. This version includes all the new Cobra/Mamba payload and ISO 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 or file permissions are applied, colors, 15 gui modes, etc.).

It also includes the Payloads for 4.41DEX/4.46DEX/4.50DEX/4.53CEX/4.55CEX from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ on the external drives.

  • /MKV path can be customized in settings.ini

  • Added support to display ICON0 when browsing the /dev_hdd0/home folder in File Manager
  • Added shortcut SELECT+L3 / SELECT+R3 to refresh the game list (L3 / R3 alone were mapped to select the game list mode: Favorite/Homebrew/Films)

Changelog 2.93-8:

  • Added support for .VM1 / .cfg saved in the same folder of the PSX isos stored in /PSXISO and /ps1_iso folders (previously they were using a common file for all isos)
  • Removed the annoying "PSX Options Saved" message when saving a memory card option.
  • More bug fixes for the cached game list.
  • Fixed display of covers for PSXISOs.

Changelog 2.93-9:

  • New background mode that auto-displays the PIC1.PNG of the selected game.

In this version, the PIC1.PNG is allowed to be displayed for NTFS (ISO) games. If you experience any freeze issue, change the ShowPIC1 to 2 in settings.ini (e.g ShowPIC1 = 2) Please report back if I have to revert the option to the previous default: ShowPIC1 = 1
