May 28, 2010 // 7:55 pm - Update #2: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v2.07 is available HERE with the changelog, followed shortly by PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v2.18 which includes more fixes.

Update: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.92 is now available HERE to download, which contains some fixes as detailed, followed shortly by v1.97 HERE with more changes and a demonstration video below!

I didn't program most of PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.7 and only take credit for merging 3r1c's Proxy Server and MyDownloader to create an application which automatically intercepts the downloads without the hassle of copying the URL from the log into a download manager and then setting up a file redirect.

Download: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.7

NOTE: My line only downloads at upto 175 Kilobytes, and usually without using this application, the PS3 only reaches around 30 - 40 Kilobytes.

- Built in Proxy Server
- Automatic Interception of PSN Downloads
- Segmented File Download's
- Pause and Resume File Transfers
- Download files while playing PS3 Games

Mr. Labigalini - MyDownloader (SOURCE)
3r1c - Proxy Server (SOURCE)
Develio13 - Mashing the Source

Hope you enjoy, and watch your PSN Downloads fly...

Q: What was the purpose in Mashing the source code?

I wanted an application that could automatically download files from the PSN without copying and pasting the url from the log into a download manager, and finally selecting a file to replace a given url.

Q: How do i use this application?

1. Make sure .NET framework 3.5 or greater is installed.
2. Start Internal IP.bat
3. Write down your IP Address
4. Start your Playstation Console
5. Goto Network Settings and select Internet Connection Settings
6. Proceed with Custom Settings until Proxy Server
7. Choose Use and enter your IP Address, and port = 27
8. Save your changes by completing the wizard
9. Start the PSN DM.exe (NOT Proxy.exe)

Issues and Solutions:

Q: PS3 Downloads not showing in the GUI?

1. Close the application
2. Check for proxy.exe in processes with Windows Task Manager (End Process - If Any)
3. Make sure the path.txt file is in the executable path
4. Check destination folder in the path.txt exists
5. Confirm your proxy settings on the console

Q: When downloading from PSN it says "Please Wait" until error occurs?

1. Once it says "Please Wait" just press Circle and wait until download manager has finished.
2. Download the file from the PSN Again this will take the file from the PC Cache folder instead.

PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.7 is Now Available

no. you have to purchase (activate it) on the same ps3 you are going to play it on.

otherwise the ps3 will reject it.

one does not simply "download games" to the ps3 for free.

Basically .PKG files will download but not install without an error unless you paid for them... this applies to any Firmware version since around the 2.4 update.

So basically, I have to update to firmware 3.30 to install the pkg files?

Unless this thing can install swapped PKGs it is kind of pointless, the hassle to change the PS3 proxy settings is not worth the PC speed boost. PKG swap needs to be developed as it would be awesome!!!

If anyone is able to fix this, or has the knowledge and would like to attempt to, then send me a pm and I'll send you the source.

I'm struggling to find the time, as I'm finishing my College Course on IT Systems & Support and have still got to another 47 points in order to get the highest grade.

Only 2 weeks left, Yay

I'm willing to help with the Int32 issue, i have C# knowledge (although it's a bit rusty, haven't coded in a while).

Let me know if you're interested

I've downloaded and installed over 15 games both demos and paid for, the app is working fine, maybe yours is a lil exception.

I have all the games i mention except section 8, i need to do game share with someone who has it, urgently... can't wait to see what it looks like.

Setting country.txt to &country=us, the app still errors out on me after completing a download (tested by downloading a small game trailer).

Looking at the state column, it says error, illegal characters in the path, something which I believe was supposed to be fixed a couple versions back? I'm using the latest one right now (3.27)
