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.

Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 developer wborland0 has updated PS3 Game List Manager to version v1.9.3 for Windows users followed by 1.9.3.1.

To quote from his blog: Yet another revision bringing PS3 Game List to v1.9.3. This version implements an useful feature that was backlogged for a while due to its complexity: PKG file support (both release and debug).

This functionality allows users to manage their PSN games and homebrew apps, in addition to their standard game folders and games stored as ISO files, providing an all-in-one suite. Moreover, the app implements a decrypting method that allows the contents of the PKG files to be extracted quickly (just for comparison, it extracts PKGs twice as fast as Ifcaro's PkgView; an excellent piece of software, btw). Further revisions will shorten the times even more.

Since Linux and Mac downloads are low (the Windows version seems to outpace the demand ten fold over), the platform specific versions will be put on hold for now (although it is very interesting to port the app to another OS, it is a whole lot of work to adjust, test and bug track). Perhaps if the demand is high, it will be resumed again.

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:

v1.9.3

  • PKG file support (both release and debug PKGs are supported, data stored as a PKG 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 PKG files, like ISO images, 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);
  • Improved SFO parser;
  • Fixed issue that prevented some ISO files from loading;
  • Fixed minor tooltip issues.

A minor update fixing a bug that prevented firmware info from loading, thanks to the users who pointed that out.

As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well.

Following up on his previous updates, PlayStation 3 developer wborland0 has now made available PS3 Game List v1.9.2 Manager for Windows, Linux and Mac users.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

To quote: Another revision bringing PS3 Game List to v1.9.2. Despite the minor release digit, this version implements an interesting feature (which almost stands as a project of its own): ISO 9660 file system support.

Users who have the various dongles that provide ISO image functionality can now use the app to manage their game library, check the change log for additional info. I am considering adding UDF support as well, if there is demand for it.

Since multiupload has been down for a while, I’ve been looking for alternatives. I intend to host the files at psx-scene.com, the project seems to fit their developer initiative well. I will get in touch with them and arrange something out. Meanwhile, the download is available at the provided link, it will do for now.

PS3 Game List change-log and features:

v1.9.2

  • ISO 9660 file system image support (currently read-only, data stored as an ISO image 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 volume; note that ISO images 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);
  • Linux version now allows game directory browsing;
  • Fixed issue causing eventual background image distortion.

The Linux port of PS3 Game List, based upon v1.9.2, is available for download. 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).

The OSX port of PS3 Game List, based upon v1.9.2, is here, featuring the same app updates (minus the platform specific functionality). Mac OS X 10.5 or up is required, so is OpenSSL (OSX ships with a slightly outdated version, but it should work; feel free to update to the latest release, though) and the Qt lib (the download link includes base files).

Haven’t tested it on Lion, let me know of any eventual misbehavior.

As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well.

Ah, that would explain things. Anyway, can't wait for more updates.

I don't want to be a pest or anything, but would anyone know why PS3 Game List would suddenly stop finding games?

I mean it used to work, and I have reinstalled it over and over. But now it just doesn't detect any games inside my designated folder.
