multiMAN v04.20.00 BASE (20130220) is now available online. NOTE: It is a BASE version, which means that it can be installed over ANY previous version and is also suitable for first-time users.

Changelog:

  • Introducing the new mM payload which makes mM independent and easy to port for various firmwares
  • Supports only 3.55 CEX/DEX, 4.21 CEX/DEX, 4.30 CEX, 4.31 CEX
  • BD-ROM Emulator option in Settings can be set to "Enable / Disable" - no more "Hermes"/"Standard"
  • Compatibility-wise it is better than "Standard" and "Hermes".
  • This payload overwrites 252 bytes of strings in LV2 memory (and not 4000 bytes of code like other payloads), it doesn't use syscalls and doesn't rely on firmware functions, executes fast and improves performance
  • Added option in settings "Redirect /app_home":
  • Disable (/app_home will not be mounted at all)
  • Enable (/app_home as used in previous versions - points to the game - for disc-less)
  • Toolbox (on Rogero firmwares with pre-installed toolbox if you play from discs only - it allows you to return to stealthMAN without restart)
  • For 3.55DEX and 4.21DEX mM now supports split-games, adds better disc-less compatibility and also allows loading of PS1 backups in BIN+CUE format from internal/external.
  • IMPROVED DISC-LESS COMPATIBILITY: The new payload allows for some tweaks and there is 80% chance that games that didn't work disc-less will now work.

Includes:

  • multiMAN ver 04.20.00 BASE CEX (20130220).pkg (30 MB)
  • multiMAN ver 04.20.00 BASE DEX (20130220).pkg (37 MB)
  • multiMAN ver 04.20.00 BASE CEX STEALTH (20130220).zip (29 MB)

CEX, DEX and STEALTH versions include Showtime 4.3.21, ps1emu for 3.55/4.21/4.3x, ps1netemu for 3.55/4.21/4.3x, AIOMOD.BIN and mM's theme.

Additionally to the BASE version contents, the full one adds:

  • One motion background (4 MB)
  • 9 themes (125MB)
  • 5623 PS3 game covers (97 MB)
  • 3425 PS1/PS2 game covers (43 MB)

This is the ONLY difference between BASE and FULL (the additional content, which usually doesn't change a lot from one FULL to another).

FAQ:

I'm playing Assassins Creed III with an odd issue: With the disc in drive it runs as a BLES version. When running discless it runs as BLUS - it is not a major issue but it will double the install space (4,5 GB x 2 = 9 GB) and the BLES run does not use the BLUS savegame (and vice-verra). Will it be possible to look into this ?

The problem here is even though Aliens: Colonial Marines works on EXT (or INT) Disc-less you are still NOT getting the FULL game data install of 2711MB ,so this game to be 100% running NEEDS the disc in the drive to install the game data ,after which you can play it disc-less without problems.

Without a disc in the drive your install data (the game doesn't even prompt you to install a thing) is only 39KB (previous payloads it was 1KB). With the disc in the drive (which is the correct way to load this game even though it does run without a disc) your install data is much bigger, 2711MB. So tagging this game to run 100% without any problems down the road ,it simply needs a disc in the drive to install the data. At some point in the game the ps3 MAY look for that installed game data and it isn't there when you run the game first disc-less (or dont install the game data with the disc),this will cause you problems later on.

Another example of this is with RAGE. The game doesn't even prompt you at all to install any game data disc-less and will most likely cause problems later on. With a disc in the drive you get the full game data install. After the game data is installed the game can be ran disc-less with out problems

Discless (as you all call it) is a special boot mode and some games act in a very weird way (if they boot at all). There is nothing that can be done about that.

Users are VERY confused about the differences between starting a game from /app_home and from a disc icon (/dev_bdvd). You can't expect the game to act the same when using /app_home and certainly a lot of games require that you remove the old gamedata (which you intalled when you played from disc) and install it again. You should decide beforehand whether you're going to play a game from the disc icon or from app_home and keep that decision until you play/finish the whole game. If you mix both modes you'll run into problems.

Conclusion - When you run a game discless for the first time, it may not install game data. It may look fine at first, but you may run into problems with the game. So a good practice, run the game with disc with. See if the game install the data. After that you may run the it discless.

You can find the updated versions of bdRESET and gameDATA in the Web column. Both updated to version 5.00 and support mM 04.20.00.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (396.47 KB) / [Register or Login to view links] (281.17 KB) / [Register or Login to view links] (2.37 MB)

p.s. These are only compatible with mM 04.20.00+ and its own payload and won't work with other payloads or redirections set by other tools/managers.

You can find the updated lastGAME 5.0 in the Web column. It now supports mM 04.20.00 and more. With the next update mM will pass information to lastGAME when you launch a PS1 backup. It means that the next time you want to load the same PS1 BIN/CUE you can do it from XMB. As you know it also supports mounting the last AVCHD movie you loaded from mM.

If you wish to test the lastGAME+latest mM you can install this minor update to 04.20.00. It requires that you have BASE or FULL 04.20.00 already installed. lastGAME now supports 3.55/4.21 DEX firmwares, too.

Update: With the next update mM will pass information to lastGAME when you launch a PS1 backup. It means that the next time you want to load the same PS1 BIN/CUE you can do it from XMB. As you know it also supports mounting the last AVCHD movie you loaded from mM.

  • lastGAME now supports 3.55/4.21 DEX firmwares, too.
  • lastGAME now supports the improved disc-less game loading (regular non-bdmirror/non-extGameData games)
  • lastGAME now supports PS1 hdd/usb backup formats

If you wish to test the lastGAME+latest mM you can install this minor update to 04.20.00. It requires that you have BASE or FULL 04.20.00 already installed.

  • You can press [TRIANGLE] in the RETRO column and select the emulator type from a list
    menu
  • Fixed saving settings/last-state when loading "bd-mirror" or "ext. game data" games

It now supports selection of "Emulator type" in the side menu in the RETRO column, making it faster to switch grouping than pressing [SQUARE] multiple times. So press [TRIANGLE] in the Retro column (over Refresh or a Rom) and select: [Group Roms by Emulator]. Then you'll see a list menu.

p.s. Updated lastGAME5.pkg to support 4.31 CFW.

All three updated to support mM 04.20.00 and firmwares 3.55CEX/DEX, 4.21CEX/DEX, 4.30CEX, 4.31CEX. lastGAME updated to support PS1 backups for direct launch from XMB (of course requires mM installed) The updated version of all three (and showtime) are available in the WEB COLUMN.

Showtime 04.03.032 by Andreas Oman is now available online for mM and as standalone in the web column.

I don't believe it works for homebrew created into ISO. Have you actually tried a PS3 Game created into an ISO image.

I use genps3iso_v2.0 to create it on my pc.

Hi Guys,

i am following the scene for a while now and I am very glad I found this forum. It helped me a lot. Thanks so far...

I am facing an issue with my cobra usb dongle. I am trying to get a ps3 iso running via nethost and it just don't work. I even created a ps3 iso with the PS3 and transferred it to the nethost. But it won't start. I always get an error message, that this operation is not allowed. See attached error message. I am an absolute noob and am not able to find out the root cause. Maybe it is an easy issue. Please help.

Thanks in advance
