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.

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)??

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.

Uhmm... no it's more that kind that deank helped them with the cobra stick and it's also nearly on that team cobra. The files used are from dev_flash and just ported / modified. No offence meant to any one. But just think, deank knows about that stuff, he also knows about the emulators but his official mm would not be developed to a lv like the cobra stick mm use. But they use his source to make Cobra MM soooo... use your brain

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).
