Alright so if i undertand this properly... MultiMan's creator deank left the scene and now Team Cobra decided to pick this up and from now on they're doing the releases ?? wtf... anyhow also...

Users that are just using any kind of jailbroken PS3 can use this even if it's meant for the dongle ??

Is it a one version release only ? or is there one MM release for the dongle and one for the non-cobra users ?... because all i see is one link and its mirror link (both the same).

As far as I know Multiman has great compatibility with lots of ps1 games built in without any dongle required, Cobra are planning to support multidisk games too though which will be the only ps1 bonus to Cobra owners, if that gets released, it probably will, then the free scene will get it too not long after.. same old story!

the only thing you'd really want the dongle for is to play your legally owned ps2 backups, well that's what i'd get it for anyway. otherwise, multiman and kmeaw is just as good!

Surely he 's using it without dongle. Guys, please, wake up. Without dongle, doesn't do nothing more than what old version always did plus a lil more tricks..
