MultiMAN v04.30.00 Changelog:

  • Added support for various 4.40CFWs
  • Added support for loading PS2 Classics (from /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO) (thanks flatz & ing.pereira)

multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE (20130324) Includes:

  • multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE CEX (20130324).pkg
  • multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE DEX (20130324).pkg
  • multiMAN ver 04.30.00 BASE STEALTH (20130324).zip
  • Showtime 04.03.100 [CEX].pkg
  • Showtime 04.03.100 [DEX].pkg

Also available online and in the WEB column for those who want to test PS2 Classics. What I added to mM is just a simple function to link the iso.bin.enc files to the placeholder app. Whatever it requires is not changed. I don't have any ps2 classics to test anything. mM already has a PS1+PS2 database of almost 4000 covers (already available in the FULL version and online), hence few lines to link the encrypted isos to the placeholders. The haters are barking at the wrong tree.

You need [Register or Login to view links] (PS2_Classics_Placeholder_R2.rar by CaptainCPS-X) installed and your ps2 classics in /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO as subfolders. It is also available for download in mM's WEB column.

If you don't have memory-cards, mM will create them for you under SAVEDATA subfolder in the game folder.

Use the following structure format:

/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game (simple naming format - no cover download)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/ISO.BIN.ENC
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/COVER.JPG (not mandatory, but if present will have higher priority than downloaded covers)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC0.VME (mM will create it if missing)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/Test Game/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC1.VME (mM will create it if missing)

or even better, the recommended format:

/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003 (mM will use the gameID and will download the cover if available)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/ISO.BIN.ENC
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/COVER.JPG (not mandatory, but if present will have higher priority than downloaded cover)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC0.VME (mM will create it if missing)
/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/[SCUS-97194] NFL GameDay 2003/SAVEDATA/SCEVMC1.VME (mM will create it if missing)

Basically you only need the ISO.BIN.ENC and nothing else:

/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/MyPS2Classic/ISO.BIN.ENC

and mM will show "MyPS2Classic" disc icon in the RETRO column. If you name your folder with the game-id, mM will download the cover. If you put "COVER.JPG" next to the iso, mM will use it instead. That's it.

Just updated my cobra to v6 and the firmware along with it. Went to update mmcm and it said that it couldn't contact the update server. It says in system info that it's 04.06.02.

I wouldn't care so much except that it also can't seem to connect to whatever server is needed to download game updates like it used to. Anyway, I got the 4.40.00 base cex pkg file and installed it.

Started mmcm again and it asked me the 3 questions and loaded the default theme. I went to system information and it still says 04.06.02 despite the xmb saying it's 4.40.00. It also still won't connect to any servers.

No there is nothing wrong with my network, I connected the ps3 a web site just fine and can ftp to and from it. What's going on here?

try to re-enable bd, but still it didn't working ? it said 'BD-ROM emulator couldn't start' ??

Update: it was working, I read all the information about 4.41 CFW and also information about MultiMan 4.40 very carefully , then I realized I miss one step as recommendation to make it working with MM 4.40, there was missing one step 4.41.1 Lite CFW.

so, I tried to install 4.41.1 Lite again after backup then install 4.41.2 Lite and then install MM 4.40 again, the BDrom working perfectly without re-enable it.

Following up on the previous update, today multiMAN PS3 back-up manager has been updated to support Rebug 4.41 CFW with the changes outlined below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (104.59 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (2.57 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (39.17 MB)

More Mirrors (via mateogodlike.com/2013/05/ps3-multiman-044000-upd-base-cex-dex.html):


To quote: Dean has come through and updated multiMAN to version 4.40.00. This quick update makes it compatible with REBUG's released 4.41 LITE CFW As well as any future 4.41 CFW's that are eventually released.

Changelog:

  • Added support for 4.41 CFW
  • All specific features (like BD Movie region Change, BD-Mirror, DYNAREC, PS1 BIN+ISO backups, PS2 Classics, discless, etc) work.

multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE (20130502).zip (104.59 MB) Includes:

  • multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE CEX (20130502).pkg (37 MB)
  • multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE DEX (20130502).pkg (32 MB)
  • multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE STEALTH (20130502).zip (35 MB)

Note: If you ran multiMAN on 4.41 before this update, you will need to re-enable the BD-ROM emulator (bottom option in settings) and restart multiMAN for it to work.

Note 2: lastGAME, gameDATA and stDISC won't work. bdRESET should still work. The function in mM for ext.game data works. If you have gameDATA installed you can switch back to HDD mode.

Update: Dean has compiled a new mM compatible version of Showtime. Showtime 04.03.211 [CEX] for multiMAN: Replace it (via FTP or mmOS) in /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/sys/:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (5.89 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (5.93 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (5.99 MB)

Update 2: multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE CEX (20130503).pkg is also now available above with the following additions:

  • Updated Showtime for mM to 04.03.211
  • Updated PS1 Emulator (ps1_emu.self) to 4.41 (it will be used on 4.40 and 4.41 CFWs)
  • Updated PS1_NET Emulator (ps1_netemu.self) to 4.41 (it will be used on 4.40 and 4.41 CFWs)

Now mM will use ps1_emu/ps1_netemu from 4.41OFW (patched of course) when launching PS1 ISO/BIN+CUE backups if your PS3 is running 4.40CFW/4.41CFW. I didn't change the mM version, but if you wish better PS1 backups compatibility and newer Showtime - update to this BASE version.

You can install this version either from scratch or update any installed mM version.

Finally, mMTools has also been updated for PS3 4.41 CFW with details below, as follows:

And here are the remaining tools:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (722.63 KB)

Included:

  • lastGAME6.pkg (requires mM 04.40.00 if used for PS1 backups)
  • gameDATA6.pkg
  • bdRESET6.pkg
  • stDISC4.pkg

All tools should now support 4.41 CFW. Older firmwares 3.55 / 4.21 / 4.30 / 4.31 / 4.40 (CEX / DEX) are supported, too.

The server issue is that there is no more a server. You should have no problems playing retro roms with any mM version.
