PSN Download Manager 3.80 is Released with Turbo Server Guide


Sponsored Links
171w ago - Just another few updates to PSN Download Manager, prior to recovery of the PlayStation Store. Today, I've released version 3.80 containing some of the following changes:

  • Added a premium membership option, which offers access to a huge feature called Turbo Servers and also removes the advertisement shown on startup.
  • Several minor changes to the code in attempt to patch errors for some users

Here is a quick guide to hosting your own Turbo Server:

Create a FTP or HTTP server using a relevant program like apache or filezilla,

1) Create a folder called DATA this will hold your shared files
2) Make sure to copy the exact file structure of your Downloads folder
3) For each file you want the clients to see, create a text document with the exact same filename, and add to the extension .ready (Include the word ready as text inside the file as well) | Example: 2782hsh7ggogpoyl.pkg would have a ready file of 2782hsh7ggogpoyl.pkg.ready

And then share your link to the rest of the world, who can now access them files from your server.

As for the clients to enjoy this feature, they just need to login as a premium member and add the server ip into there Servers.txt on a new line. (A small fee of £1.00 a month, to cover the cost of our main server and development time | Account sharing will not be tolerated and will result in blacklisting.)

Other changes, include a few memory leaks patched, several points of potential hanging (freezing for a short period of time) have been patched and reduced chance of corrupt file upon exit.

This file is downloadable via our site, through the links already provided including any old urls like [Register or Login to view links] which will automatically forward you.

My colleague and I will be around to maintain this on a weekly basis until updates are no longer required, but I'm not sure if any software really reaches perfection tbh

Premium Membership accounts can be purchased via the my account tab, this will appear sometime within the next 24 hours on the website once our payment system is updated and accounts will be activated within 24 hours of payment. (Valid until subscription is cancelled)

We hope many people will share some of their upstream, and make the Playstation Network a better place to be; something where it can compete against the download speeds of rival consoles and make it the choice for gaming once again.

Have a good day,

Pixolia Solutions,
Jordan Dyckes.

Hello, I's like some help as I'm not able to get it working right. When I launch PSN DM.exe (3.42 version), the app launches but a second windows appears as an error, and it doesn't look like catching PSN dl...

My PS3 is on 3.42 as well, and I used Logan5's tool proxy. The PS3 test passed well except for UPnP. But it never did

I know there is some sort of connection between, as Logan5's tool detected the new 3.42 update while I was first still in 3.41.

What do you think? (Win7 64)


Hmmm, I can't edit my message anymore... I forgot to say I changed port to 8080 with port.txt in order to match logan5's tool.

Is it possible to use this and the proxy update bypass at the same time?

downloads the files to your computer...?

Yep I've got a bad internet connection, so I just go on the Playstation Store load up all the content I want downloaded and then pause it; take my portable hard drive into College and download it in about 20 minutes while doing some work :S (Naughty, but come on; My internets been down all day, and it's slow when it works.)

Ah, the proxy doesn't support standard web requests as it's built to capture playstation content and will crash if you try the internet browser.

As for the Madden 11 Demo, it is normal for it to say "Please Wait" just back out of the menu and feel free to use the console until the download has finished on the computer; I like being able to play another game while somethings are downloading, unlike the standard ps3 downloader which stops when your in a game.

As for the 12 Minutes to download it, could specify your connection speed and the file size as your segments might not be configured for full speed.

1 and 1/2 minutes to transfer to the PS3 is about normal, and even faster If you connect it to a PC and use ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) but it requires 2 ethernet ports. (1Gbps which is about 15 - 20 seconds for a 1 Gigabyte File)

Sorry about not being able to use the Internet Browser on the console when the proxy is enabled, I've developed a skill which allows me to quickly enter network settings and turn the proxy on & off when needed in about 10 seconds.

P.S Should something crash the proxy or are not sure right click on the bar containing the total download rate, and choose "Reboot Server" you shouldn't loose connection to PSN also click just above it in the segments area and you'll get access to options such as a scheduler, maximum segments and min segment size + some more

[EXPERIMENTAL SETTINGS]
Set the Minimum Segment Size = 1024000
Set the Maximum Number of Segments = 4096 (4 Gigabytes, could be more)
Set Retry Delay = 10
Set Max Retries as Infinite = 0

This maxed my line out to the point I couldn't even browse google, it sucked every drop of internet available, but has massive speed spikes and a massive speed drop for about 10 seconds of the download towards the end and then speeds back up again.

250 Megabytes in 6 Minutes 40 Seconds on a 5Mbps connection, which is about right
