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

Notes:

  • 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

Today Cobra USB Firmware v5.0 and mmCM v04.01.00 Full is released for those who have the dongle, with details below:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

04 - 02 - 2012 Changelog of Cobra USB Fw 5.0:

  • Added support to play isos from a PC using network connection. No more waste of time copying between PC and ps3, play directly from the files on your computer!

Requires to run the supplied ps3netsrv server application (it is inside mmCM 04.01.00 download) on the PC, a version for windows and linux is provided (mac users can use the windows version with wine

Note: when using wine, we recommend to run directly the command line ps3netsrv.exe and not the gui).

Currently the following items can be played from network:

  • PS3 isos
  • PSX cue+bin or isos
  • Blu-Ray isos
  • DVD isos

Currently the following items cannot be played from network:

  • PS3 games in JB directory format (planned for 5.1 release)
  • PSP isos (planned for 5.1 release)
  • PS2 isos (planned, but we cannot estimate the version)

Although Cobra doesn't restrict the isos from being loaded through wifi, wifi is too slow for most uses, we recommend to use a wired connection.

  • Optimized a bit the read of PS3 isos (15-20% gain in external disk, not noticeable in internal disk)

  • Added dynamic firmware version spoofer capabilities. You can set the spoof in mmCM settings. As Sony release new firmwares, the spoofer can be updated by updating mmCm, without need of updating Cobra USB fw. No system files are modified by the version spoofer, all take place in ram.

Changelog of mmCM 04.01.00:

  • Changed: Nethost PC server application "ps3serv" is replaced by new windows/linux application "ps3netsrv"
  • Added support for playing PS3 and PSX games in ISO/CUE+BIN format from remote net_hosts (PCs connected to the LAN)
  • Added support for playing Blu-ray and DVD-Video movie titles in ISO format from remote net_hosts
  • ! NOTE: For best performance and compatibility of the new net_host interface, a WIRED network may be required (Wi-Fi is also supported)
  • ! NOTE: Root folders served by remote hosts must contain /PS3ISO, /BDISO, /DVDISO and /PSXISO folders to enable remote content
  • Added new option in SETTINGS column: "Network Servers" for setting up to 10 remote nethost IP:PORT values
  • Removed: *nethost* settings from options[_default].ini are ignored and no longer supported
  • Added new option in SETTINGS column: "System Firmware Version" for "spoofing" current FW version to 4.00 or higher
  • Added support for thumbnail images for remote BD/DVD/PS3/PSX ISO/BIN+CUE files (*.jpg / *.png)
  • Added support to copy files from one net_host to another
  • Added support to delete folders from remote net_host
  • Added support to view files in TextViewer from remote net_host folders
  • Added support to copy games and ISO images to remote host from SIDE menu ([TRIANGLE] in XMMB/XBDM/BOARD display modes)

Finally, below is a usage guide from coveman via: tortuga-cove.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=77&t=2509&p=4828#p4828

1) Pick a folder which will be used for sharing: I created a folder called H:\PS3_ROOT
2) Created the subfolders for different type of content: BDISO, DVDISO, PS3ISO, PSXISO, PSPISO, PICTURE, VIDEO, MUSIC
3) Double click the ps3netsrv_GUI.exe to start the GUI
4) Click the box under "Folder to share" and selected my folder H:\PS3_ROOT
5) Click [Start] button

s3nint3!If everything is okay, a black window will appear with message "Waiting for client..."

s3nint3!6) Go to my PS3 and in SETTINGS -> Network Servers I added my PC as /net_host0. I set the IP address of my PC and used the default port 38008. Make sure that you find the IP address of your computer and even better - using a STATIC IP ADDRESS will make it easier for you, because it will not change between PC restarts.

s3nint3!7) After you complete step 6 - you should see the messages in the black-box "Connection from xxxx" where xxxx is your PS3's IP address.

In case you don't have "Connection from..." message, make sure that your WINDOWS FIREWALL is either disabled or it allows incoming connections to the selected port (in our case the default 38008). Also check if you entered the IP address correctly.

That's it. I guess I was helpful!

Tip: If you want to save yourself a bit of time next time you need the ps3netsrv, just create a simple .bat or .cmd file (I created one called ps3.cmd) and save it in the same folder where ps3netsrv.exe is saved. You can see mine in the first screenshot.

Just put this single line in your cmd/bat file and save the file:

ps3netsrv.exe . 38008

Pay attention that there is a DOT "." before the port. You can also use any other path and replace the dot if you wish, but that's not necessary. The next time you can simply start the ps3.cmd by double clicking on it and you won't have to use the ps3netsrv_GUI.exe.

We're getting there... But don't pay for a dongle, with patience all comes free...

And then there will be PS4 and we started over again...

That new display mode looks awesome, it's simple and easy to use. I'm also glad they added new themes, the ones that came with the first mmCM weren't that good.

Below is a mmCM (multiMAN Cobra Manager) v04.00.01 Base (20120126) update for those with the dongle, with the changes outlined as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

26 - 01 - 2012

  • Added new display mode (Board 5x4x5), replacing the oldest "Game list (plain)" mode

  • "Board" display mode shows ICON0.PNG game images by default. You can use covers by changing the option "XMMB Icon Swap" in Settings

  • Improved File Manager visuals when used in SD resolution (480p/576p)

  • Fixed an issue, which prevented operation on CFW/MFW 3.41

  • Added support for showing PSN titles in all display modes from internal/external HDD (PSN titles cannot be loaded and you have to put empty RELOAD.SELF in game's USRDIR folder to make it show!) (requested)

  • Added lastGAME2 and bdRESET applications

  • Added 11 new themes to the theme download section (total of 14 now)

  • Updated 15 language files

  • Added separate background images for Board and XBDM display modes (PSVBG.JPG and XBDBG.JPG)

  • Updated mmCM Original Theme (includes new images PSVBG.JPG, XBDBG.JPG, PBOX0.PNG, PBOX1.PNG)

  • Preparations to support loading of network PS3, DVD and Blu-ray ISO files

  • Preparations to support firmware version spoofer (auto-spoofing to latest official FW or to user-defined fixed version)

  • Required Cobra USB update will be announced when network ISO and firmware spoof support is available

Q: So what's the advantage of lastGAME2 over the original LastGame app?

A: There are 3 versions actually:

1) The original lastGAME works with mM 01.13.* - 02.09.02.
2) lastGAME2 works with mM 04.00.00+.
3) lastGAME2 for CobraUSB works with ISOs (DVD/PSX/PS1/PS2/PSP/PS3/BD-movies), too.
