PS3 Game List v1.9.3

Download link: (download v1.9.3.1 instead)

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.

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);

v1.9

  • Additional language support: Spanish;
  • Fixed issue while joinning files from multiple folders.

  • 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);

    Just wanted to ask for a linux port… love your work, thanks 😉

    Few feature request:
    (1) Default “Folder Rename” setting, I tend to use _TITLE_-[_ID_] because it easier to find my folder, but PS3_
    (2) Related to the first setting; like many other naming system, ie. In musics and movies, the “The” tend to be moved to the back. For example; Using PS3 Game List Rename option will give “The Cursed Crusade-[BLES01299]”, it should be made so it be something like so; “Cursed Crusade, The-[BLES01299]
    (3) Update Package Links (low priority); It okay to use PS3 Game List to download the update but it would be better if I use a download accelerator if PS3 Game List give me all the links for the available update.

    Hope it not too demanding.

    (Forgot to finish typing feature request (1)); When using the “Rename folder (user defined)” the setting should be saved. Each time after using it, it always reset to “_TITLE_ – (_ID_)[_FIRMWARE_]”

    Another request;
    There should be a cache of some kind. It would only scan missing (delete from list) and new folder/pkg (add to list) rather than rescanning the whole thing again.

    PS: The Package support is awesome. Thank you.

    Hi,
    ps3gl crashes a during download game updates. plus, once download of updates for a game is complete, ps3gl does not continue the download queue. it just stop. I have to start download again(usually crash) by game updates->download updates.

    it would be nice if ps3gl could support library(I have multiple ps3 game folder) or multiple folders and list that we can save.

    thanks.
