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

He used to be called deanrr here so some people still use that name... for the most part he's known as deank though. Also, he replied stating the following, so it appears condorstrike was correct and he's fine with Cobra using it, etc for those following:

I'm actually glad that for the first time I see a clone/fork of multiMAN which has things and features ADDED. I've witnessed 4 or 5 releases of multiMAN, compiled by various users or sites, castrated and barely recognizable, renamed and published as 'original work' (there was no drama there, right?!), but this time some users get a better version, although limited to cobra dongle users. As I see it, the new stuff in mmCM is about cobra and it is nice that someone picked up on the 'garbage source-code' (as many qualified it numerous times few months ago), and managed to add useful features to it.

I don't care who uses mm's source, so just stop the drama. The license says 'you can do whatever you want with it' and it doesn't require that you include the modified source or anything. Check your English skills and re-read it. It requires that the redistributed package/version includes the license and it does - there is a ./usrdir/sys/LICENSE file in their distribution.

As I see it - cobra usb users got a new option and that's good - I like that now they can enjoy a multiMAN clone. Actually I feel kind of good that mm will reach more people. As for the mm 02.09.02 being the latest (not last) multiMAN version - well if I find something new to add - I'll add it. I spent a year adding stuff and features and it looks good to me as it is now. If I find time - I'll add more. If you find time to add something useful - add it - the source was there for 7 months and no one cared about that.
However, not all PS3 developers think he's on the level... some feel despite telling the public otherwise he's still on Cobra's payroll it appears: twitter.com/#!/CrashSerious/status/156446073739673600

CrashSerious: Huge thanks to deank for leaving the scene and selling out to Cobra

You can get PS2 emulator working on non-BC hardware, have tried it with a CECHK, which is quite near to slim hardware.

Probably they found a way to launch the emulater and grabbed the best working one from any official FW.

ok, so there it is... btw, big props to this manager, as I've tested it thoroughly and works perfectly on my slim PS3, even PS2 games run, not all perfect, but close enough.

caw!
Surely not?

There hasn't been a sniff of PS2 emulation on the slim - we all know it doesn't have the hardware - but some suggested that it may be possible to get the flaky emulator working... are we really saying Cobra has cracked it?
