173w ago - You can now update to multiMAN 2.00.03, which includes several bug fixes and additions below including a "Retro" column for video game emulators on the PS3 console.

multiMAN 02.00.03 Changelog:

  • Fixed: Launching games with cached files right after they're cached
  • Fixed: GAMEI folder won't appear on USB unless "Ext Game Data" option is used
  • Fixed: Double entries in VIDEO column when thumbnail is named for example video.avi.jpg and not video.jpg
  • Improved: Scrolling left/right in XMMB mode (faster and won't load columns)

BUG FIX for the Retro column cache: I found out what was wrong with the retro column and the cache file. The problem manifests only when user doesn't go to the retro column. Then an empty cache file is created and next time nothing shows. It is okay now, so you can safely update to get the fix.

Here is a quick fix. It is also available via online update for users which are still on 02.00.02.

Nice, top work, thanks again, looking forward to anything else you do with this.

One final thing (for now!), as and when we update, what happens to everything we've already put under the \GAMES\, it doesn't get wiped does it ?

The program will detect these titles and will display them in the menu. If you activate one of them it will automatically rename it and will save the current name, so don't worry - it will work.

OK, so on one of my USB drives I've got the following structure :

F:\AVCHD
F:\AVCHD_TitleX
F:\AVCHD_TitleXX
F:\AVCHD_TitleXXX

etc. When I want to watch something I obviously just remove the underscore and everything after it. Does this now, in essence, do that for me without altering the file structure ? I.e. you know longer need an AVCHD folder at the root of the USB drive ?

#vstace: No, not a concept. Browsing works for both panes. COPY/DELETE/RENAME will be in the next update.

One thing, when you connect a USB device, full of AVCHD folders do they have to be named something specific or does it scan and recognise via another method ?

Also, are the AVCHD folders mountable/playable via the internal HDD (obviously this is the main annoyance with AVCHD - not getting DTS/24p/Subs etc if played off internal)


It will look for INDEX.BDM in your USB devices ROOT+ONE_FOLDER_DEEP paths, no matter what they are named.

No, it is not possible to play AVCHD from the internal disk. Not unless some tweaks are made in XMB xmls and some other files.
