  • 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 PS2 Classics Placeholder R2 (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.

The way I see it, even if he did "sell out", at least this version of multiman works without the dongle so you can use it on kmeaw. To me that sounds more like the case of "this is the free version but with the pro you get these features", which, I'm perfectly fine with.

Open Office is only one of many open source projects. It in itself is the combination of many other open source projects. There's literally millions of open source projects out there.

I don't fault deank if he decided to profit off Multiman. As far as I know, he contributed the vast majority of work to the project. If he solicited the help of others under the guise of open source and then turned around and sold it for a profit, then I'd have a different opinion, but as far as I know that is not the case. Would I prefer he continued with a free open source development? Of course.

Also, it's worth nothing that deank has denied allegations that he's working with Cobra. His past actions have given me no reason to believe he's anything but trustworthy. I agree the sudden stop of development appears suspicious, but there's many possible scenarios.

Maybe it's all coincidence and other factors in his personal life have stopped development. Unless you know deank personally, I don't think anyone has a right to doubt his claims. I can imagine many scenarios that he might not want to share with everyone (eg. cancer, dead relative, unemployed, etc) and it'd be terrible if people were giving him a bad name over purely circumstantial evidence.

I'm grateful for his past contribution as I know I'm entitled to nothing.

I have said that they both dongles are doing the same. But for me guys like grafchokolo have done much more then those both teams. All the files used on this both sticks are frm dev_flash and just patched/ported and not rewritten or anything else.

But anyway it seems you haven't understood. tHeUnknOwEnSeCRet will do this all for acid cfw and even don't want fame. He only do this for helping peoples and he do this for acid cause we share the same ideology about those things.
