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

Is it likely that MM/Showtime will ever be updated to allow for BD iso playback from harddrive, akin to the cobra USB functionality, or is that something which a cobra is physically required?

Another request for MM, can we get the updates to be updated like Showtime where they dont mess with the param.sfo as I have to keep editing it with every update and moving it back to where I have it. Showtime stopped that and it just updates and keeps the icon where it is.

And that 13 UPD didn't remove the disc icon when there is no disc in the drive, its still there. All the previous bugs I said about are still there. I guess I'll have to wait for the next version or downgrade. I'm going to downgrade now as its really annoying the way it is now.

Apparently the 8x4 and list mode are fixed in the updated version 04.14.03 UPD CEX (20121202) added HERE now.

That latest 4.14.03 screws up 8.4 list. Instead of O exiting like it should it now changes all the game icons into settings and you cant get the games back unless you press L1 then R1. Even if you quit then reload MM its still that stupid menu.

Cam we get the O as EXIT again.

Another thing, its got a new empty box when highlighted says "Start game from disc (PSX/PS3)" but there is no disc in the drive. And the empty box next to that says "refresh" Do we need 2 more empty boxes? looks stupid especially when there is no disc in the drive. and if you press Triangle there is a refresh option there. Oh, I just found out the Triangle menu is also screwed, its now a side menu.
If it wasn't for the new working features I would go back to a previous version of MM.

So Apple have screwed with itunes and now DeanK is screwing with MM. I cant get a break can I. Looks like everything is getting screwed except for me...

It would be a thumbs up if it worked properly. I copied a game from NTFS to internal. Ok, so it read the NTFS drive and copied the game over but the game refused to run, when it tried to install it came up with an error. I ended up deleting that version and copying it over via FTP and now it works fine. SO it will read NTFS but its corrupt when it copies from USB/NTFS to internal.

And another bug report. When you download the update of MM it wants to reboot the PS3. NOT GOOD when you update it via Remote Play as it does reboot and turn on the PS3 kicking it out of Remote Play mode.

Thank you DeanK! Although i didn't find option for USB reset (neither in ini, nor in MM settings menu), MM now doesn't rearrange USB drives and works fine on Rebug

btw, 4.14.03 is out. Updated in MM.

Today deank has updated multiMAN once again to version 04.14.03 with the changes below, as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (3 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2)

Changelog:

  • Totally reworked 8x4 display mode (compatible with all themes)
  • Added "Reset USB" option to "Settings" to disable USB bus scan/reset
  • Added new translation labels
  • Included latest installPKG standalone application

Update: Shortly following, deank updated multiMAN once more to version 04.14.03 UPD CEX (20121202) fixing a bug in the game list view present when moving up/down (it just toggles between the top and bottom entry) stating:

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

You can take screenshots... Press the {PS} button, go to [Photo] column in real XMB -> Take Screenshot. I see that is wrong and got it fixed, thanks!

All fixed (both 8x4 and the list mode). The link in the post above is updated with the new one. Let me know how it works. You can also update online by starting mM while holding L2+R2 and update from the Home column.

Also when using 4x2, 8x4, 5x4x5 and XBDM modes and if you leave mM while in dash/home/settings it will return you to your games list on next launch External Game Data function is not to be used with all the games out there. Some work, some doesn't. I know exactly what the issue is, but it is impossible to overcome. Same goes for games with caching split files and/or using BD-Mirror function. I can give you the technical explanation if you wish but that won't solve anything.

Delete all installed game data, use a game disc, disable 'ext.game data' if enabled, disable direct-boot, and try again... Enable bd-mirror and try again... I have TFU (not the sith edition) but it works... It gives a black screen if you don't use game disc or without bdmirror.

How to turn off USB drive rearranging introduced in v4.14? Now i cannot set any games in MM

MM tells about disconnecting and reconnecting, then leave to XMB without game in disk and /app_home.. USB remains inaccessible till i turn PS3 off... I'm using Rebug 4.21 in DEX mode with BD emulation on USB stick. Before v4.14 everything was worked just fine...

so, how to turn this very bad new feature OFF??

btw, BD emulator on USB stick also disappears till i switch PS3 off. This is really bad bad bad feature!
