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

Shame on the coder for patched games. I'm not a skilled programmer but i know that this is just a offset thing to add. And i doubt that he is really working on that, just adding new code but it seems that dean himself is not really interested in. I think that he only implemented the usage of the psp/ps1 emulator and doesn't try to improve the hole thing.

Also we get no information on that kind meaning why this or that don't work. Looks like he still try to put a mass of things into the app without thinking on other things.

I doubt it would help. The last update did nothing to improve capability for PSP games. And I highly doubt this will. If I update and test the games I tested before and if they blackscreen... then it proves me right. Not just that but there is no game covers... I never was able to download game covers in it. So I doubt this would fix that.

Reporting back, what a surprise... it still can't play patched games.

My guess is that they only support PSP mini games, you can try contacting them on their website (in the "source" of the second link I gave you - [Register or Login to view links]) and make sure of this though or if anybody knows the answer please do tell us .

Does Cobra support PSP UMD handheld games or PSP mini games? PS2 isos shouldn't be a problem since I have a 60GB.
