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/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:
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.

Its dean's work, he can sell HIS work and get remuneration for it. ITS HIS TIME, the question here is who is paying, because WE DIDN'T pay for his time.
I really think he is the one that enjoys the least his work, because the hundreds of hours he invests in coding don't give him time to get some gaming, sad but true. Thanks dean for what you could give us as long as you could, you deserve at least a couple bucks to get your testing equipment for free and THATS nothing compared with what you worked for. Imagine all those hours at a modest ($50USD) pero hour and you tell me if free equipment is worth it.
Yes, guys... Agree with everything that was said. If we could have one of this freakin dongles with stable CFW (like kmeaw), support for PSX, PS2, PSP isos, homebrew compatible, multiman mounted and TB payload for newer games... well... THEN I WOULD REALLY GET IT. LLOOOLL!!!
Oh, I forgot... And the dongle MUST talk with sexy lady voice. Damn!
I would like to hear directly from dean as well not just speculation... I have followed his MM program for a long time and loved the updates, then the updates just stopped coming, does that mean without the dongle their will be no more updates?
Sad, but understandable in the POV of Dean, I don't know his job, place of residence, if he has a family to provide for, or his living standards so yeah if you understand that he is a human being there is no reason to be angry with him, unless he publicly says screw everyone that supported him or others accrediting to his program.
In short I really don't want to buy a freakin dongle I spend enough money, MILKING COWS DOESN'T PAY FOR EVERYTHING.
There is no PSP support on the new update (4.2) It basically took away support from what I tested. I used the new Multiman (Cobra Edition) and I plugged in my PSP like it said I could... but nothing happens. Leading me to believe it has no support anymore.
It lied about allowing you to boot games from the PSP. Unless someone can confirm and tell me how the hell you do it. Because I just spent like 12 minutes trying to get it to work. And when I tested a PSP game off a usb.. it errored telling me to "install" the PSP launcher... again? I already have it installed but I get that error every time.
