GroovyManager PS3 File Manager Proof Of Concept is Available

Sponsored Links
223w ago - I've created my first POC (proof of concept) version of my PS3 file manager called GroovyManager, with Groovy Installer now also added below as the first update!

This version is VERY basic. I was more concerned with functionality than beauty in this version.

Download: GroovyManager PS3 File Manager Proof Of Concept / Groovy Installer

The main screen is very plain:

Your only option is entering the IP address of your PS3 and then starting the scan.

Note: You must have the PS3 FTP Server running before you start the program.

The program will scan the internal hard drive as well as ALL attached USB hard drives

When it finds a game it copies the PARAM.sfo file and the ICON0.txt file locally to your machine. When all games have been found it parses the PARAM.sfo, creates a txt file of the PARAM.sfo values named Title_ID.txt, renames the PARAM file to TitleID_Drive_PARAM.sfo and the ICON0 file to TitleID_Drive_ICON0.png.

The programs not perfect but most of the issue occur because the PS3 FTP server isn't stable. I still have to do quite a bit with error trapping, reading local drives and of course making it look pretty.

I've a link to the program - there's a good chance that I'll release the source code as well (I need to clean up my code first )

I'm not trying to take any credit away from the Gamezplorer creator and I'm just a bored programmer looking for something to do :lol:

Please let me know what you think and if I should continue moving forward.

That would be your problem. The built in FTPRequest model is crap.

Try using [Register or Login to view links].

It's free, and the best out there IMO

This isn't using anything special to connect...

Dim result As Net.FtpWebRequest = DirectCast(Net.FtpWebRequest.Create(URI), Net.FtpWebRequest)
result.EnableSsl = False
result.KeepAlive = False
result.UsePassive = False
result.ReadWriteTimeout = 5
result.Timeout = 10000
Return result

It connects every time for me - unless the server has crashed and then Filezilla won't connect either.

Erm i think its good to know what people are working on! The more homebrew the better so thanks!

If we have alot of homebrew apps,even ones that do pretty much the same thing they may all serve a purpose ie one may be faster, another one may be more stable,one may have an option the others don't.

So the more the merrier i say.

Thanks again!

And your post is POC that if you give a teenager the internet he'll find something to whine about.
