OpenSplit v1.0 to Split 4+GB Files for Open Manager PS3 Arrives


Sponsored Links
198w ago - Here is OpenSplit v1.0 to split 4+GB files via PC for Open Manager on the PS3 followed shortly by version 1.1 which includes some bug fixes and version 1.2, and deanrr shared a similar app called Split4G which he detailed HERE.

Download: OpenSplit v1.0 / OpenSplit v1.1 / OpenSplit v1.2

* What is this? *

This little tool lets you split the BIG files (bigger than 4GB) in your games on your PC, so that you can use them with Open Manager 1.0 for the ps3.

* How do I use it? *

- Press "Split BIG files to .666xx" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for BIG files and split them according to Open Manager 1.0. All game folders that contained BIG files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "BCESXXX" to "_BCESXXX")

- Press "Merge .666xx files to BIG" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for .666xx files and merge them to BIG files. All game folders that contained .666xx files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "_BCESXXX" to "BCESXXX")

- Check the checkbox "Don't delete splitted BIG / merged .666xx files" if you want to keep both BIG and .666xx files.

You can choose your whole GAMEZ directory, then all games will be processed.

I have attached the program to this post.

An important issue: PLEASE DON'T TRY TO MERGE .666xx FILES ON A FAT32 HDD! There files can't be bigger than 4 GB! You will only encounter errors!

Another issue: IF YOU START A SPLIT/MERGE PROCESS, ALWAYS WAIT UNTIL THE MESSAGE "All jobs done!" APPEARS IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY PROBLEMS!

Enjoy!

by Fejwin

LOG:
v1.0 - Initial release
v1.1 - Bug corrected (files could not be deleted). & Slight improvement of stability.
v1.2 - Now the chosen folder doesn't return to "default" after one job done. Added a soundeffect when job complete. Buttons look better.

Enjoy!

I am having that weird problem again, V1.1 running 9 games through in batch mode, no dir swapping this time, but its not deleing the BIG file, so having to do it manually, and its not renaming the DIRS with _

Works ok 1 by 1 though.

There is nothing special about either split functions. Just load your game folder, select a destination (on FAT32 usb HDD) and the tool will copy/split all files/folders. Then once you copy the data with comgenie's manager from the external usb to your ps3 hdd - files will be merged.
If u guys are having an eboot.bin not valid or not found error using splitted files, make sure you copy the splitted game into a folder called GAMEZ on the external hdd fat32 and use open manager to copy it into the internal hdd instead of comgenie awesome file manager. I solve my problem this way.
You need to use the open manager to copy the games to the internal hard drive - it will automatically re-joind the splitted large files.
Thank you. It worked

Not to overtake the topic, but couple of weeks ago when Comgenie released his Awsome Filemanager I created a small win32 application to do the PC side split. It doesn't require java or NET or anything. It supports both split naming conventions and I decided to share it anyway.

Here is the requested version of the split4G application. It now has additional drop-down-list option to select the split filename format:

filename.#.part (for Comgenie's join function)
filename.666## (for OBM join function).

Dean

can you post a small guide for using your tool with Comgenie's tool?
