Changelog: mM 04.14.00

Changes related only to 4.20-4.30 CEX/DEX CFWs:

BD-Mirror:

  • BD-Mirror option now supports USB HDDs mounted as /dev_usb000 to /dev_usb127
  • BD-Mirror option uses different approach now and doesn't move the PS3_GAME folder of USB games and doesn't modify the mount table
  • After using BD-Mirror for USB games, the usb drive is still accessible in XMB (Video/Music/Photo/Saves)
  • Improved disc-less support with BD-Mirror option enabled

USB Ports issues:

  • When using more than one USB device mM will disconnect/reconnect them from/to the USB bus in the proper order
  • This fixes games that crash when started from USB when multiple devices are connected

NTFS/PFS usage:

  • It is now possible to use any NTFS usb drive without configuring its Vendor/Device IDs in USB.CFG
  • When switching to NTFS/PFS mode use only one USB HDD connected (mM supports up to 2 partitions: FAT32+NTFS, NTFS+NTFS, FAT32+FAT32)
  • To access the contents of NTFS drives use mmOS and /pvd_usb000 /pvd_usb001 (games from NTFS drives won't show in other display modes)

Other:

  • Better support for data CD/DVD/BD discs and improved "Enable Direct Disc Access" function
  • Improved BD-Mirror function for games on internal HDD
  • Games started from mmOS icons/shortcuts handle BD-Mirror/Ext.Game Data options properly
  • Online update server updated (5320 PS3 game covers and 3420 PS1/PS2 game covers)
  • Updated showTIME media player (for mM) to version 04.01.264
  • Updated 8 translation files

Install Package Files (standalone application):

  • Supports split pkg files named in the following format: filename.pkg.0 -> filename.pkg.63, filename.pkg.001 -> filename.pkg.064, filename.pkg.66600 -> filename.pkg.66663
  • Upon launch/refresh the following folders are scanned: /dev_usb***/, /dev_usb***/PKG, /dev_usb***/packages, /dev_hdd0/PKG, /dev_hdd0/packages
  • Updated stDISC application (better drive reset timing and support for 4.30CFW)
  • Updated gameDATA, bdRESET and lastGAME applications to support 4.30CFW
  • Updated showTIME media player (standalone) to version 04.01.264 (CEX/DEX)

The showtime version provided with mM as standalone acts as the build-in one so it returns to mM. If you wish to quit to XMB either use the official build or use {PS} button -> Quit to XMB.

About NTFS - if you previously configured usb.cfg just stick to it. Without USB.CFG only two partitions will be available - that's it.

Today the infamous Max Louarn's Cobra Team has announced they are officially entering the PS3 Optical Drive Emulator (ODE) market similar to PS3 3K3y as they apparently feel this is the next way they can con unsuspecting PlayStation 3 scene users into blowing money on unnecessary devices so they can profit as they did with the DRM-infected TB dongle months ago.

Short of a few images from their sites (cobra-ode.com / cobra-team.com) and brief description, not much is available on the device yet:

The website for the most advanced PS3 Optical Drive Emulator will be launched soon! Come back soon for further updates, details of features and information.

From their marketing frontman Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA): "We all heard of the upcoming '3k3y' device, but now the market for installing an ODE in the PS3 scene world is heating up as the world's famous Team Cobra behind the Cobra-USB dongle is now going to be producing an Cobra-ODE for playing all your backup PS3 Blu-Ray Game Disc Images directly from any HDD without the need to have your PS3 console on 'custom firmware', which they claim will be 'most advanced PS3 Optical Drive Emulator' ever.

No more information is available at the moment, except what is on their official websites, but stay tuned as we bring you more exclusive news!"

His latest spin doctor attempt: "To the three people and dozens more that will reply causing a 'flame war'. Answer me this, how can HARDWARE be free? An ODE is not a DRM dongle it is interface between the ps3 and blu-ray drive, making the PS3 think it is talking to the actual blu-ray drive, not HDD, allowing you to use ORIGINAL FIRMWARE.

Even if the 'scene' released the info for FREE on how to do this, like the Glitch'ing on the X360, you would still have to build a PCBoard, buy the parts and solder it together, and flash an asic with the code, it might be little cheaper but still would cost money.

There is already CFW for FREE, this device is just another option for those wishing to play backups using OFW. No one is forcing you to read this topic or buy this hardware. Again it is not dongle. -- As for updating the firmware for cobra-usb dongle, i heard it was in the works, not sure if any update, i will ask."

Needless to say, those who preach about additional hardware being required to play PS3 games (silly wabbits ) with the advent of PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware a few years ago have vested interests in profiting from it. The same sheep who bought into TB will be suckered into this device that will mysteriously disappear once they cash in on the new fad they are peddling and then release free PS3 scene game cracks under various pseudonyms. In a nutshell: don't fall for these con-artists, save your money and wait for free PS3 scene solutions instead.

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.
