To quote: Another PS3 Game List release, bringing it to v1.9. The idea was to improve application usability, based upon the feedback provided by the users.
The Linux and Mac versions are behind schedule; the OSX lib issue is taking longer than I anticipated (and having a virtualized environment doesn’t speed things up either). Hopefully, they will be released soon.
As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well.
PS3 Game List change-log and features:
PlayStation 3 Game List Manager / Updater v1.9:
Allows users to hide the extra frames (avatar, video resolution and audio) in order to gain horizontal space and better display standard game info;
Downloaded updates will be prefixed with targeted PS3 system version (e.g. 02.4000_UP9000-BCUS98103_00-UNCHARTEDDF1SCEA-A0110-V0101-PE.pkg);
Additional language support: Spanish;
Fixed issue while joinning files from multiple folders.

“Download updates”: adds all checked updates to the queue and starts/resumes the download process (allowing simultaneous downloads; starting from version 1.9, all downloaded updates will be prefixed with the targeted PS3 system version);
“Stops downloads”: interrupts the download process; partial downloads can be resumed at a later time;
“Select all/none”: selects/deselects all updates;
“Settings”: opens up the application configuration dialog;
“General (Settings)”: configures game folder depth (up to 10 levels; e.g. “Z:\GAMEZ\Gran Turismo 5\BCUS98114\” instead of “Z:\GAMEZ\BCUS98114\” ), enables loading from multiple game folders, enables the creation of image backup, enables iconic representation of flag items, enables Unicode support for game titles, sets file deletion option for split/merge operation and sets the default download folder);
“FTP”: the FTP tab allows the user to connect to a server (or a PS3 running one); right click on an item to display the available options (download, delete, rename or load game information). In order to upload a game, connect to a server and navigate to the destination folder. Then, go to the “Game info” tab and right click on the game to display the context menu. Select “Upload (FTP)” to upload the game to the destination folder.

Here is a PS3 Game List Linux version for those interested as well: ps3gamelist.wordpress.com/2011/05/09/ps3-game-list-linux/
To quote: The initial Linux port of PS3 Game List is finally here. Based upon v1.6, it implements most of the Windows version features (minus the platform specific functionality). The OpenSSL package is required (download the correspondent version for your release), and so is the Qt lib (the download link includes base files).
As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well. If there is enough demand, there may be ports for other operating systems as well.
