multiMAN v04.19.02 from deank is now available with the changes outlined below, as follows:

  • Added support for 4.31CFW
  • Added support for creating ISO files from PS1 game discs
  • Improved support for PS1 ISO/BIN/IMG/MDF

About the PS1 improvement: I have NFS:Porsche and it works fine from disc but not from ISO/BIN. The issue was in the patched ps1_emu.self (ATAPI 0x43 READ TOC) which I believe breaks some games (like because of missing .CUE sheet processing). I hope that this fix (which is included in mM 04.19.02) will fix issues with other games that crashed or had some audio issues.

The original patch from Hermes (in ps1_patch2.S):

P.S. Source: Mt. Fuji Commands for Multimedia Devices Version 8: [Register or Login to view links] (page 785 / 20.21 READ CD Command)

I'm working on something with the help of @flatz which doesn't involve patching of the ps1_emu. Just like Estwald found out that the only way to properly handle all PS1 CDs is to return the correct TOC response with data about all the tracks. For this to work the manager must REQUIRE and PROCESS a CUE file with each BIN (ISO). Then intercepting some syscalls to spoof the response of some ATAPI commands and return the data from the CUE (in a similar binary format like the one Estwald posted about).

If all this is done properly it can lead to mounting ps3 iso files, too.

1) Read the CUE file and prepare proper data somewhere in LV2 memory for 0x51 and 0x43 ATAPI commands
2) Intercept syscall 604 and monitor for few ATAPI commands:

0x51: READ DISC INFORMATION
0xBE: READ CD (SECTOR)
0x43: READ TOC
0x4A: GET EVENT/STATUS

3) Return OK to all other requests, but send the prepared data for 0x51 and 0x43 and read from the BIN for 0xBE

This is oversimplified explanation, but basically this should make all PS1 discs work properly, both for ps1_emu and for ps1_netemu.

I'll try to tidy up and organize mM’s source code and will make it public in few weeks. There is nothing hidden there and I know a lot of coders will hate the 60 000 lines of multiman.cpp and will call-out my poor coding skills again like they did 2 years ago, but there you are.

MultiMAN v04.19.00 is out and now includes PSOne (iSO) Disc image support with details below from deank, as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (12.36 MB) (CEX/DEX/STEALTH updates) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror)

multiMAN 04.19.00 is now available online for CEX/DEX/STEALTH:

  • Added initial support for single-disc PS1 ISO/BIN backups (/PSXISO /PSXGAMES folders)
  • PS1 ISO/BIN backups will show in the RETRO column
  • PS1 ISO/BIN backups compatibility is much lower than burned PS1 CD backups

* Credits for the PS1 EMU patches go solely to Estwald/Hermes

Memory cards are stored per game in the same folder as the game. Covers can be named as the iso/bin with .jpg (3264x3264 max) or .png (416x414 max) extension (or as COVER.JPG (3264x3264 max) when using PSXGAMES folder with game-name subfolder).

Don't forget that pressing [SQUARE] in the RETRO column groups content (emulator ROMS, PS1/PS2/PSP).
