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.

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:

v1.9.2

  • 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.

v1.9.1

  • Hovering the mouse over a populated list displays tooltip containing the selected game info and background miniature (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Additional tag _FIRMWARE_ for custom rename (e.g. “_TITLE_ – (_ID_)[_FIRMWARE_]” => “Gran Turismo 5 – (BCUS98114)[3.50]”, “[_FIRMWARE_][_ID_][_TITLE_]” => “[3.50][BCUS98114][Gran Turismo 5]”, etc.).

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.

v1.8

  • Splits files over 4GB using .666xx fragments for FAT32 compatibility (a file named “filename.ext” will be split as “filename.ext.66600”, “filename.ext.66601”, etc.);
  • Joins file fragments back into the original file (joining will not be performed if the volume format is FAT32 ; configuration via settings dialog);
  • Updates will be queued again after a hash test fail (requested feature);
  • Fixed drive usage info for Japanese text;
  • Fixed minor French translation issues.

v1.7

  • Allows multiple simultaneous downloads (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Supports download pausing/resuming;
  • Displays download speed;
  • Allows users to indicate whether a game loads from the external hard disk or not (double click on the correspondent cell to select the desired value, the info will be stored at ‘external.txt’ when the save action is performed; the file can be manually edited, the format is [GAME_ID] [CODE], where [CODE] can be 0 (Not Tested), 1 (Not Working) or 2 (Working); e.g. BCUS98114 0);
  • Full Unicode support (UTF-8) (configuration via settings dialog; by enabling Unicode, the application will render non-Latin characters used in western languages, special symbols, etc.; text will be rendered using ISO-8859-1(Latin-1)/Windows-1252 otherwise);
  • Displays check items (flags) as icons (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Indicates whether a game update has been downloaded (partially or in full);
  • Overwrite confirmation is no longer asked (the package SHA1sum is checked instead; if the hash test fails, the update will be added to the download queue);
  • Additional language support: Japanese;
  • Fixed _TITLE_/_ID_ order issue (custom rename);
  • Fixed image loading issue after folder renaming;
  • Fixed drive usage info;
  • Updated German text (thanks to Whynot for the correct translation).

v1.6

  • Loads info from multiple game folders (configuration via settings dialog);
  • FTP renaming (via FTP context menu);
  • Additional option to rename game folders to a user defined format using the tags _TITLE_ and _ID_ (e.g. “_TITLE_ (_ID_)” => “Gran Turismo 5 (BCUS98114)”, “[_ID_][_TITLE_]” => “[BCUS98114][Gran Turismo 5]”, “XYZ -_TITLE_” => “XYZ -Gran Turismo 5”, “[_[_ID_]_]” => “[_[BCUS98114]_]”, etc. ; notice that at least one of the tags must be present and the characters ‘\’, ‘/’, ‘:’, ‘*’, ‘?’, ‘”‘, ‘<‘, ‘>’ and ‘|’ cannot be used);
  • Exports game list to Excel file format (requires Microsoft Excel installed);
  • Imports game list from a previously saved Excel file [requires Microsoft Excel installed; games can be manually added (a game title and a valid ID must be filled), and the worksheet layout must be followed, otherwise the rows will be skipped];

  • Displays FAT32 compatibility (notice the “Bootable” column indicates whether a large file is split into smaller parts);

    woot! thanks for listening to my request! you sir are awesome!!

    testing this out as soon as i get home tonight!

    Hrm… I’m having a problem with the folder scanning and folder depth option.

    Here’s my current configuration

    r:\ACTION\PS3ISO\ <– contains 50 .iso files
    r:\SHOOTER\PS3ISO\ <– contains 50 .iso files
    r:\<– contains 30 .iso files

    ACTION and SHOOTER folders do contain other subfolders but they are all empty. They also contain a few files that are not .iso format.

    No matter what I do, I can only get your program to load the 30 ISOs that are in the root.

    Even if I raise Game folder depth very high (3 or 5), it still doesn't scan more than the 30 iso games in the root.

    Same thing if I try to pick any of the PS3ISO folders directly after choosing "Select game folder"

    Do you know if I am doing anything wrong?

    • wborland0 says:

      The ISO loading does not follow the ‘folder depth’ setting (as stated in the change log). If you want to load ISOs from multiple folders, you have to add the folders to the list one at a time.

      • vesper8 says:

        Thanks for your reply,

        As stated in my message, that doesn’t work either.

        Adding folders manually still only allows me to add isos from the root folder. I explain this in detail in my post. Pointing to subfolders that contain ISOs does not add them to the list.

        Any chance of reinstating the folder depth for ISO mode please?

      • vesper8 says:

        I’m sorry I hadn’t caught that in your changelog. I see also that you recomend that we add the ISOs to the root folder.

        That isn’t feasible in my case, I’ve organized my ISOs into subfolders and genres because there’s just too many of them to stick them all in one root folder.

        Here’s to hoping the next version will be a little more flexible on that part.

        Thanks for your continued hard work on this. It’s come a long way

      • wborland0 says:

        Are the ISOs stored directly under the selected subfolder? It should work that way.

  3. vesper8 says:

    Can’t seem to find any updates for any games either. Not getting any dialogs to let me know one way or another anyway. Isn’t it possible to check for updates on multiple games at a time? What will happen if an update is found?

  4. vesper8 says:

    Is there a game perhaps that you’ve tested this for? I mean, a game in particular that if you point to it’s .ISO format it will find and download updates?

    Because every game I’ve tried to “check for updates” nothing happens when I click that.

    I asked around at PS3ISO and other places, and everybody says that you can’t play ISOs in MULTIMAN. Why store them in the format then? I agree, it’s very convenient to store the game in one file, but if you have to extract the iso on a PC every time you want to play a particular game… it’d be a chore, to say the least.

    • wborland0 says:

      There are dongles that provide ISO loading functionality, so you can play using the ISO image; it is convenient to store your games in that format. Also, multiman isn’t the only manager around. Thanks for checking the app out.

  6. 1111 says:

    Hm, interesting. Can you be more specific please? What dongles and managers are able to do it?

    • vesper8 says:

      Cobra-USB is the only one that supports loading games from ISO format. I have it myself and have got it working. It also allows you to load games in ISO format over the network!!! Meaning you can store your ISOs no matter how big the images are on a NTFS drive connected to your PC and have the PS3 load games directly from it.

      Cobra-USB also allows you to do the same thing with PS1 and PS2 games (also got it working, but I’m using a BC phat model).
