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

So mmDM enables you to play backups on DEX PS3s?

Below is MultiMAN v04.05.04 (DEX), which now includes more BDEMU features as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] by A$h X

CHANGELOG for mM v04.05.04 (DEX):

What's New:

BDEMU games are accessible in the side-menu in Game column when user presses [TRIANGLE] over the [* Refresh]

  • Added support for mmDM 02.00.00 (Aldo's PS3 DEX Game Mounter PC application)
  • Added support for selecting and activating up to 10 games from BDEMU USB HDD (mmDM+ProDG+LAN required) - Press [TRIANGLE] while [* Refresh] is selected in Game column to access BDEMU games

Basically, it now supports changing games on the BDEMU HDD if mmDM (Aldo's DEX Mounter) is running + ProDG/TargetManager

Remember, for these on regular CEX/CFW the version is still only at v04.05.01 for mmCM (aka) multiMAN Cobra Manager.

Note: Aldo's mmDM 02.00.00 is required to make usage of the update, along with of course a DEX PS3 Console.

Finally, from A$h X: I've re-packaged (above) the newest DEX multiman (04.05.04) so it doesn't overwrite the old multiman, that way you can try it out without losing the ability of flash CEX dumps via older multiman versions.

Today aldostools made available a mmDM DEX Game Mounter alongside the release of multiMAN version 04.05.01 with details below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (35.21 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror)

mmDM (Dex Game Mounter) will automatically convert the CEX/CFW(retail) games to DEX (debug eboot/sprx/self). It can also convert the modified files back to CFW. That was the whole point - it is all automated, active game is changed via mM or mmDM.

  • You pick your regular GAMES collection
  • Use it on DEX (mmDM will take care of the on-the-fly conversion)
  • Use it on CFW (mmDM can restore all changed games to CFW compatible)

The PS3 Tools Collection 2.0.1 (aldostools.org/ps3tools.zip) patches the "/dev_bdvd" -> "/app_home" just pressing Shift+Ctrl+Enter on the EBOOT.BIN/self/sprx from Windows Explorer.

One additional important setting is also required in ProDG:

Target Properties -> Target -> XMB Settings -> Debug Settings -> "GameContent Util Boot Path (/app_home/PS3_GAME) -> For Development

From the ReadMe File: mmDM: Aldo's DEX Game Mounter/multiMAN DEX Readme

* Credits:

  • aldostools for creating a kickass app in couple of hours
  • zadow28 for the general idea, testing and being drunk as usual
  • gDrive for testing and being sober all the time
  • acab for the cheer up
  • GraVoX for getting settled

What is included:

  • multiMAN 04.05.01 [DEX]
  • mmDM 01.00.00 [PC] (Aldo's PS3 DEX Game Mounter)

Advantages:

  • No need for ps3gen and dedicated USB HDD with limitation for the number of games
  • No need to go to the PC each time you want to select a game (if mM is used)
  • Faster loading times via LAN
  • No need to split games
  • No HDD space required for games (only game data)
  • Works for 00.92-03.60 DISC game backups
  • Works for 03.70-04.20 DISC game backups with 03.55FW patched disc eboot/self/sprx files (not PSN/pkg patches)
  • If you prepare UPDATE packages for 03.70-04.20 games make sure to change all /dev_bdvd references in EBOOT.BIN/self/sprx files to /app_home

What do you need:

  • A PC and a PS3 and wired LAN (and some brains)

On your PS3:

or

--- Have multiMAN remotely activate games via mmDM

  • Select your PS3 under "Debugging Station ..." and press F7 (or mouse right-click -> Connect)
  • Reset your PS3 -> "Target -> Reset"
  • Wait for the resettingphase to complete

mmDM: Aldo's DEX Game Mounter

multiMAN DEX – network (PC)-located games have a little globe in the right-hand corner of the icon

Update: In related news, andbey0nd (with the help of aldostools) has also released genGP3 allowing PS3 DEX owners to use PS3 Generator without the need of setting up options, meaning you can now transfer games to a USB HDD that has been re-formatted for DEX-only usage.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] by Abkarino / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

From the ReadMe files: genGP3

Usage: genGP3.exe GAME_FOLDER [output.gp3]
Example: genGP3.exe x:\GAMES\FUNNY_GAME\PS3_GAME

or

Drag and drop your game PS3_GAME folder to genGP3.exe

  • Use command prompt or drag & drop a PS3 game folder to genGP3.exe
  • It will create a .gp3 XML project file for PS3 Generator Tools
  • Use Generator tools to create a MasterDisc or BDEMU image (iso/emu)

September 2012

CHANGELOG:

  • 01.00 - Initial Release
  • 02.00 - Support for PS3_EXTRA (new format), support for Extra Content (Themes, Packages and Videos in PS3_EXTRA)
  • 02.01 - Added support for TITLE_XX, PIC*_XX, ICON*_XX, SND0_XX for PS3_GAME and PS3_EXTRA content and UTF8+BOM output
  • 02.02 - Added support for old extra content format PS3_GAME/PKGDIR/PKG**/INSTALL.PKG for installable packages (no PS3_CONTENT support for THEMEDIR/VIDEODIR)

Now it is possible to create scripts which otherwise would take over 30 mins to create when PS3_EXTRA folder is present with up to 1000 content folders for themes, videos and packages. 02.00 adds support for games like "Journey - Collector's Edition"

Here is example output of the app when PS3_GAME folder of 'Sleeping Dogs' was drag&dropped to 'genPS3.exe':


Project written to: H:\GAMES\BLES01661-[Sleeping Dogs]\BLES01661.gp3

In most cases, it only takes about 1 to 2 seconds to complete the operation, you then use this file in PS3 Generator.

Remember still only newer games which have 'retail updates' on the Sony servers can be played on DEX, this tool just makes using PS3 Generator easier. Enjoy

From aldostools: genGP3.reg TIP:

1. Extract the rar to C:\genGP3 (it should be that path!!!)
2. Create a new text file with the following content and save it as "Associate genGP3 to Folders.reg"


3. Double click on "Associate genGP3 to Folders.reg"

Now you will be able to create the .gp3 file in 1 second just right-clicking on the PS3_GAME folder

To remove the association, create a text file with the following content and save it as "Associate genGP3.reg" and double click on it.


.gp3 files are the XML used by the PS3GEN tool to build BDEMU images for PS3 develoment consoles (DEX or CEX-->DEX).

They are usually created by the PS3GEN tool filling some fields and drag/drop the files to PS3GEN. This tool automates the creation of the .gp3 file, saving time and strain in your hand.
