Package contains:

  • mmCM 03.00.00 (3108 PS3 Covers, 2020 PS2 Covers) (showTIME, ps3SERV)
  • PS3SERV PC app: To be used with mmCM file manager /net_host# network folders.
  • SHOWTIME PLAYER: Included as SHOWTIME.SELF in mmCM USRDIR/sys folder to enable playback of video files
  • BROWSER.SELF: Standalone WWW/FTP application

Condorstrike from [Register or Login to view links] believes deank is not working for the Cobra USB Team and has stated the following on the IRC logs below discussing it:

"We don't have confirmation on that, truth be told... we haven't spoken to Dean in a while, he did tell me a while back that he was going away for a while.

So from my understanding as far as I know, this is Team Cobra's app using Multiman's open source project... so for now, I'd say it's not Dean."

Update: The man himself deank has now made an official statement on the merging of multiMAN and Cobra.

Also, Team Cobra have released a quick update to mmCM to fix a minor bug that was present in mounting PSP ISOs without a disc in the drive. mmCM v03.00.01 update is available now ONLINE ONLY to Cobra USB users via the intergrated update system.

From IRC:

[Abkarino] deank had joind cobra team?
[flash67] LOL
[TehRuler] YEP
[TehRuler] LOL
[eussNL] Cobra ~=~ TrueBlue
[eussNL] so if it supports the replaced sub_28fe30 and new section 0x80000000007f0000 that Cobra uses, it means Trueblue support is around the corner...
[flash67] exactly
[middleman] i see deank sold out eh, that mustve been the big news tortuga was talking about
[TehRuler] no wonder he's been hiding
[middleman] yeah, went in hiding to make multiman for cobra, blah

Finally, below are the changes, as follows:

  • Added MultiMan for Cobra in the download section.
  • Support for games with split files.
  • Bugfix: special keys of bdremote weren't working in showtime.

Finally, [Register or Login to view links] has made available a [Register or Login to view links] based on the [Register or Login to view links] and details on how it was done below, as follows:

Unself the vsh.self (try using MAGIC PKG 1.0), then HexEdit the vsh.ELF and replace the 8 bytes at the following addresses:


Then use self_rebuilder (also available in Make PKG 1.0), to rebuild the vsh.self
Drag and drop the original vsh.self and the edited vsh.elf

As far as I know, CobraUSB will still be required if you have an old FAT and want to play PS2 imports, right?

alright thanks. also, you said he updated his original MM project with a new build ? so this means Cobra MM is at 4.00 'ish. Deank's MM is at v09.02.09 ..

any differences ? new stuff? best option (your opinion on which version is best)??
No, it was a internal update for the media player showtime that is built into multiman. deans multiman hasn't been updated.

Not 100& sure of exact differences, read changelogs. Cobra multiman has extra options compared to deans multiman but its only better in reality if you have a use for them of course.

Is it possible to mount video_ts folder to be seen as inserted DVD in XMB and then watched with menus? Have 15 copies of DVDs on external HDD and only I can do is to watch VOBs.

I'll try answer some questions as the rest is only a possibility:

no dean hasn't left scene as he released an update for standard multiman showtime today. he has not released an update for normal multiman in sometime which has lead to this speculation IMO.

Yes. all users can use this now because it has been opened up to the whole scene, some features still require cobra but it has more features available to standard users than normal multiman. yes, one version release that works for everyone.
