To quote from his blog: In time for the holidays, another revision bringing PS3 Game List to v2.0. The idea behind this release was to update the framework supporting the application, while implementing all the possible features (most suggested by users) fitting the time frame.

This version implements a very useful feature: support for RAR files (including multivolume and password protected archives). That means users can retire WinRar for their decompressing needs, as PS3 Game List is now able to load game info from RARs and extract data as well (up to 5% faster than WinRar, no less).

This functionality allows users to manage their compressed games, in addition to their standard game folders, games stored as ISO files and PKGs (PSN games and Homebrew), pushing the ‘all-in-one suite’ concept even further.

Another interesting feature (which was a major addition to the application, and a project on its own) is the ability to play PAM video files (the animations played when the game is selected on XMB), if available, instead of displaying static game avatars. It can be quite addictive to go through all the videos on your game library.

Check the changelog below for all the 2.0 features.

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:

v2.0

  • Support for compressed RAR files (including multivolume and password protected archives, data stored as a RAR file will not be editable; an icon will overlay both avatar and background image in order to differentiate the entry from standard game folders, and the tooltip will display additional info about the file; note that RAR files, like ISO images and PKG files, do not follow the ‘folder depth’ configuration, just have them stored at the root of a directory and they will be loaded as a regular game folder);
  • Option to play videos (PAM files) instead of displaying static avatar images (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Users can now customize table columns layout (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Game titles are loaded according to the selected language (e.g. Uncharted 2 will read “Uncharted 2: Among Thieves” in English , “Uncharted 2: Il covo dei ladri” in Italian, “Uncharted 2: El reino de los ladrones” in Spanish, and so on);
  • Additional tags _SIZE_ and _REGION_ for custom rename (e.g. “_TITLE_ – (_ID_)[_FIRMWARE_][_REGION_][_SIZE_]” => “Gran Turismo 5 – (BCUS98114)[3.50][USA][17 GB]“, “(_REGION_)[_SIZE_][_FIRMWARE_][_ID_][_TITLE_]” => “(USA)[17 GB][3.50][BCUS98114][Gran Turismo 5]”, etc.);
  • Further PARAM.SFO editing (SFO category and Remote play options);
  • Game titles starting with “The” will have the article shifted to the end after renaming for improved sorting (e.g. “The Need for Speed” will be renamed to “Need for Speed, the”;
  • New chart for disk status (one that actually looks good);
  • Line selection will now trigger a smooth blend animation between game avatars;
  • PS3 Game List will now display an animated application logo;
  • Built with the latest major release of Qt (version 5), OpenSSL lib and compiler for improvements in speed, security and size;
  • Windows 8 support;
  • Featured installer/uninstaller;
  • Fixed renaming game titles with line feed characters;
  • Fixed renaming game titles with Unicode characters;
  • Fixed settings dialog minor translation issue.

To quote from his blog: PS3 Game List v3.0

In time for the holidays, another revision bringing PS3 Game List to v3.0. The idea behind this release was to update once again the framework supporting the application, while including new stuff as well.

This version implements an interesting feature (which is yet another major addition to the application, and a project on its own): the ability to decode Sony’s proprietary ATRAC3Plus audio files. PAM video files (the animations displayed when the game is selected on XMB) can now be played with the corresponding audio stream.

Moreover, the tooltip info now includes available languages and game version, so it is easier to identify which game to play. Also, for those still using the late OS, Windows Xp support is back.

As for the Mac and Linux versions, it seems my virtual machines are to blame for the corrupted files, and it is still unresolved. Virtualization has its advantages, but it doesn’t always go smooth. It would be a good time to have a Mac setup donated. Anyone?

This is probably the last release using the current codebase. Next step will be tossing it, and rewriting the engine from scratch so it can accommodate the changes needed to support the PS4 games, among other things. Not sure what will happen, though.

Check the changelog below for all the 3.0 features.

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:

v3.0

  • ATRAC3Plus audio decoding (PAM video files will now be played with the corresponding audio stream; configuration via settings dialog);
  • Windows Xp support is back;
  • Game version and available languages are now included in the tooltip info (triggered by hovering the mouse over a populated list);
  • Trophies can now be sorted by their value;
  • Built with the latest major release of Qt, OpenSSL and compiler for improvements in speed, security and size;
  • Fixed sorting updates by their count.

Same here, all the links I have downloaded are 20.8 MB (21,878,400 bytes) but they return the same result. Odds are the author will need to upload a new one at this point.

All of the download links for the mac version are zero-filled files. Anyone have a link to a good copy?
