MultiMAN v04.30.00 Arrives, Includes Support for Loading PS2 Classics


55w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer deank has released multiMAN v04.30.00 which now includes support for loading PS2 Classics among the changes outlined below.

Download: multiMAN v04.30.00 Base (20130324).zip (115 MB) / multiMAN v04.30.00 Update (20130324).zip (Includes CEX, DEX and STEALTH updates - 19 MB) / multiMAN v04.30.00 Update (20130324).zip (Mirror) / Showtime 04.03.100 [CEX].pkg (5.67 MB) / Showtime 04.03.100 [DEX].pkg (5.74 MB) / LANG_CZ.TXT by varinek / LANG_DE.TXT by sinsizer

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 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.

Hi, I am on Rebug 4.46. Everything works perfectly from Multiman using my external HDD. I have some games FTP'd into the internal hard drive. None are showing up in the multiman menu.

However, when I go into the multiman file manager and manually run the eboot.bin files, the games run perfectly.

Is there any work around to this. I would understand "if one of the games would have been corrupt" and not showing. But 4 games within the internal HDD are not showing up at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much in advance.

An update: dev_hdd0/game folder is where the games go with their PS3 Internal name (BSEXXXXXX). So I know I am doing this correctly.

Another Update: Games folders ARE labelled correctly. with PS3_GAME having the underscore. Going to try a Multiman "Fix Permissions" now and shall report back.

Update Again: Sorry, cannot fix permissions because I can't see the game in the list of games at all.

I need help now ... please.

See Changelog... If you play online games please use IRD files!

Below is a Cobra CFW PSP Launcher v2.0 (Remasters MOD) by atreyu187 which will load your games in PSP Remaster mode, as Cobra's Launcher only support the PSP Mini's method of playing PSP games. This release can be installed alongside the official Cobra launcher without any conflicts.

Download: Cobra-CFW PSP-Launcher v2.0 [Remasters MOD.rar / Cobra-CFW PSP-Launcher v2.0 [Remasters MOD.pkg (Mirror - via https://www.dropbox.com/sh/lt5ggtuwnskcmor/SYg9kcp2V2)

To quote: Here is a little update to Cobra PSP launcher. This is the initial release as I am testing adding the additional MINIS2.EDAT and MINIS2.TXT file for applying "fixes" found on ps3devwiki in the next release. Anyhow this will attempt load your games in Remasters mode for those pesky "black screen" games.

I have had some success with this loader that the standard one did not so I figured it deserved an initial release for others to play with. I have also found decrypting eboot.bin files then creating your PSP ISO's does "fix" certain "black screen" games into working without a hitch. Hopefully I can make a nice guide for this or the addition of the other "Remasters" files like used in the PSN PKG files we could make and apply a fix as needed with each game.

I have changed the ICON0.PNG to something more "Cobra" since it doesn't change to the PSP files in the way like the official "Minis" launcher does. Also this will install in tandem without conflict with the official Cobra PSP v2.0 Launcher. I have resigned the eboot.bin, changed the ContentID, the folder to reflect this as well as the SFO file.

The title for the XMB has had [Remasters] added to tell between the two modes. Also if you look it no longer has the "Minis" tag but the "Remasters" tag. AD-HOC is enabled with this mode but at the time untested till I test with one of my PSN games and test withe one of the PSP games I have on my other system.

Anyhow I hope this is of some help to others and anyone can feel free to add or just ask questions as another persective is a good way of advancement of this to see even more great games working without that tiny screen and hurting your hands with the PSP's all to slender design, IMO of course but I can finally get my copy of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII undub finally working right.

Also here is the current version of the Cobra Config Manager and ODE ISOCheck v0.1d from mirakel (via boerse.bz/multimedia/konsolen/sony/playstation-3/ps3-jailbreak-optical-drive-emulator/1576803-cobra-ode-faq-tutorials-support.html)

PSP Remaster Launcher for Cobra Mixed CFW by jjkkyu

Download: PSP_Remaster_Launcher.pkg

I made an easy pkg to launch pspiso under Remaster mode on Cobra Mixed CFW. This pkg is modded based on Cobra-USB PSP Launcher, so install it will overwrite the original PSP Launcher.

I also add adboc party and right analog stick support in this pkg. Enjoy, friends.

Update: I create the new pair pkg, now you can install both on your xmb, and the psp icon will only link to the remaster one.

Download: PSP_Remaster_Launcher_Fixed.pkg / PSP_Launcher_Fixed.pkg
