Finally, below is how to launch PSN games via multiMAN for those interested from sealhealy (via psx-scene.com/forums/content/tutorial-2280/):
Launch PSN Games from multiMAN like any other PS3 backup:
1. Install your PSN package game like you normally would
2. In multiman go into file manager and navigate to /dev_hdd0/game
3. Find the corresponding game folder to the game you just installed eg. 'Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell HD' = NPEB00527
4. Copy this folder to your USB game folder /dev_usb000/GAMES
5. Now rename the copied folder to something meaningful eg./dev_usb000/GAMES/NPEB00527 becomes /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527
6. Inside the [Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527 folder create a new folder called PS3_GAME eg. /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/PS3_GAME
7. Now move all files inside /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/ into the PS3_GAME folder.
8. Go back to your Game list and refresh it, the new game will appear
9. Mount the game
10. When kicked back to XMB start the game from App_home not the disc icon
You don't always need to copy all files sometimes just creating the file structure and copying the eboot.bin and param.sfo is enough.
I also think the reverse maybe true for some other games that don't work copying only eboot.bin eg. leave behind only eboot.bin param.sfo TROPDIR in the /dev_hdd0/game folder.
Creating a shadow copy of the USRDIR may also work? Nope

Is there any way to change the game backgrounds in this view (see attached picture) to a be the same single static image for every game? I remember this was an option on earlier versions of Multiman but I don't see the option in the options.ini or options.bin. There is a setting to disable them in the XMB modes, but I don't see a setting for the game list view.
The reason I want this is because there is something wrong with that specific view, that makes the image not change to the selected game if you move through your list too fast.
Long winded but I have loads of games on my OFW console so data transferred them to new one but need to then backup them to pc since there is about 50 gig of stuff so I can put the hard drive from my old console into my new CFW console, ftp back the games then put the 60 gig hd in my OFW console and data transfer the same games so I have the games on both consoles.
How exactly do I copy games with multiman in such a way that the XMB still shows them as installed?
lol, thanks, that answers that part, but still don't know why I installed 4.40.00 and it still says 4.06.02. Every time I want to play a game it asks me to update and i have to say no because it puts on psmove stuff that breaks it with a 3d exclamation mark. I figured the old mmcm update server would have the right update.
So which version do I actually have, and where can I manually get non-psmove update files? so what version am i on? 4.4 or 4.06?
