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

Hi, I am on Rebug 4.46. Everything works perfectly from Multiman using my external HDD. I have some games FTP'd into the internal hard drive. None are showing up in the multiman menu.

However, when I go into the multiman file manager and manually run the eboot.bin files, the games run perfectly.

Is there any work around to this. I would understand "if one of the games would have been corrupt" and not showing. But 4 games within the internal HDD are not showing up at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much in advance.

An update: dev_hdd0/game folder is where the games go with their PS3 Internal name (BSEXXXXXX). So I know I am doing this correctly.

Another Update: Games folders ARE labelled correctly. with PS3_GAME having the underscore. Going to try a Multiman "Fix Permissions" now and shall report back.

Update Again: Sorry, cannot fix permissions because I can't see the game in the list of games at all.

I need help now ... please.

See Changelog... If you play online games please use IRD files!

Below is a Cobra CFW PSP Launcher v2.0 (Remasters MOD) by atreyu187 which will load your games in PSP Remaster mode, as Cobra's Launcher only support the PSP Mini's method of playing PSP games. This release can be installed alongside the official Cobra launcher without any conflicts.

Download: Cobra-CFW PSP-Launcher v2.0 [Remasters MOD.rar / Cobra-CFW PSP-Launcher v2.0 [Remasters MOD.pkg (Mirror - via https://www.dropbox.com/sh/lt5ggtuwnskcmor/SYg9kcp2V2)

To quote: Here is a little update to Cobra PSP launcher. This is the initial release as I am testing adding the additional MINIS2.EDAT and MINIS2.TXT file for applying "fixes" found on ps3devwiki in the next release. Anyhow this will attempt load your games in Remasters mode for those pesky "black screen" games.

I have had some success with this loader that the standard one did not so I figured it deserved an initial release for others to play with. I have also found decrypting eboot.bin files then creating your PSP ISO's does "fix" certain "black screen" games into working without a hitch. Hopefully I can make a nice guide for this or the addition of the other "Remasters" files like used in the PSN PKG files we could make and apply a fix as needed with each game.

I have changed the ICON0.PNG to something more "Cobra" since it doesn't change to the PSP files in the way like the official "Minis" launcher does. Also this will install in tandem without conflict with the official Cobra PSP v2.0 Launcher. I have resigned the eboot.bin, changed the ContentID, the folder to reflect this as well as the SFO file.

The title for the XMB has had [Remasters] added to tell between the two modes. Also if you look it no longer has the "Minis" tag but the "Remasters" tag. AD-HOC is enabled with this mode but at the time untested till I test with one of my PSN games and test withe one of the PSP games I have on my other system.

Anyhow I hope this is of some help to others and anyone can feel free to add or just ask questions as another persective is a good way of advancement of this to see even more great games working without that tiny screen and hurting your hands with the PSP's all to slender design, IMO of course but I can finally get my copy of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII undub finally working right.

Also here is the current version of the Cobra Config Manager and ODE ISOCheck v0.1d from mirakel (via boerse.bz/multimedia/konsolen/sony/playstation-3/ps3-jailbreak-optical-drive-emulator/1576803-cobra-ode-faq-tutorials-support.html)

PSP Remaster Launcher for Cobra Mixed CFW by jjkkyu

Download: PSP_Remaster_Launcher.pkg

I made an easy pkg to launch pspiso under Remaster mode on Cobra Mixed CFW. This pkg is modded based on Cobra-USB PSP Launcher, so install it will overwrite the original PSP Launcher.

I also add adboc party and right analog stick support in this pkg. Enjoy, friends.

Update: I create the new pair pkg, now you can install both on your xmb, and the psp icon will only link to the remaster one.

Download: PSP_Remaster_Launcher_Fixed.pkg / PSP_Launcher_Fixed.pkg
