PSN Download Manager 3.80 is Released with Turbo Server Guide


Sponsored Links
169w 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.

Hey, this weekend I got together with a group of friends and we worked very hard to deliver some big changes and to expand our work.

First of all, we've revamped the website with many more features and support for 57 languages so everyone can enjoy our content, and find what they're looking for quicker.

Then we improved are website's stability, and made some changes with the download manager to take this into account, so if we go into maintenance mode the download manager doesn't stop working.

And after the website was finished, I thought 'Why is my code so messy, can I make it faster? smoother? and smaller? yet keep the functionality?' and yes, I did exactly that and reduced the amount of code by around 100KB and it's only limitation is your computer, the code is as optimized as possible.

Here are the changes in 3.92:

1) URL Detection is now 200ms faster per file
2) New File-Type Menu for those with limited technical ability
3) Huge Code optimizations reducing the code by around 100 KB
4) Stability fixes, and modification to the advertisement in attempt to improve closing speed after clicking skip.
5) Framework for our Android Application (For activation in the next build, I expect it will be 4.00)
6) Update Notification on start-up to alert users of new versions, for the best experience...

We're working around the clock, to provide users with the best experience and are always reading your comments, feedback and looking at ways to improve...

Don't forget to like us, on Facebook and to subscribe to our Youtube as we'll be releasing new video reviews etc soon...

Now time for the links:

Hi, after the events this weekend regarding a domain issue I've had to release a new build to patch several glitches with premium memberships and some server side work to fix the advert not closing after clicking skip. In 3.90 these are minor changes, but we're required:

1) changed all server side links to pixolia.co.uk from pixolia.org. that's about it one small change to fix several issues...

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

Also I realised a few saying the advert got stuck, and in some / most cases people didn't click the skip button.

The advert shown at the startup will never close until you've clicked on the skip button unlocked after 5 seconds, it may take slightly longer on single core computers so be patient (old single core computers cause the multithreading to hang for a minute or two, nothing I can do about that.)

I've also reduced the number of advertisements on my website, I'm very disappointed by clicksor for allowing such issues to occur and have reported them to various sites about the risks they pose to consumer safety.

Due to these issues, I recommend you either purchase an antivirus such as:

Avast - [Register or Login to view links] or download this free one from AVG - [Register or Login to view links]

If anyone notices a url on the new site which points to pixolia.org please contact me via the live support or e-mail the 'admin at our domain' or feel free to pm me, (this may take longer, as I only check once or twice every 24 hours) and e-mails are usually instant (unless I'm asleep) or live support, which is definitely the fastest way to contact us or the forums which can either be responded to by the community / or myself (which is checked once every 24 hours).





I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused, and have taken measures to prevent this from occurring again (The domain issue and site sabotage )

Best Regards,

Pixolia Solutions LTD.

Hi,

I would like to make sure everyone is aware that the download manager isn't working due to an internal admin sabotaging the site and as he owns the domain I've got to restore from a backup on a new site and sort a lot of stuff out.

So expect the software to not function correctly for the next 48 hours, I would post names but the majority of people will have the same thoughts as I and it isn't a good idea lol. A new build will be released upon completion of the transfer

We're now on target for recover within the next 24 hours as our new domain has been registered and I'm now redirecting urls for existing users to resume partial service

The redirect was unsuccessful at the current time due to lack of upstream on my connection, and may take several hours to upload the 65MB of data onto our server again

This is here to keep anyone reading informed, about the current status of our software as you more than likely have pending downloads and you're finding you can't start the download manager. I do have a temporary fix, which is as follows (not the best, I know)

1) Download a bandwidth monitor tool to check upstream / downstream
2) start the PSN DM.exe ignore the 404 page and you should see any downloads by the downstream increasing

The download manager will continue to function with the inability to access any controls. I'm really sorry and will get this fixed, I've already been awake 27 hours working on it Will update this thread, when services are back online.

I've now restored partial site functionality and you the usage of the download manager should resume shortly a full patch to be issued soon. Sorry I'm so tired *the usage (I don't know where the word 'you' came from) lol

The usage has finally been restored, I've now got to fix the subscription links for new customers and update the download manager for a new login system rather than the current system (It lags my home connection like mad everytime someone connects)

The domain transfer is now complete and services should be fully restored the payment system will be fixed soon.
