hi guys... i'm getting crazy trying to start split games from external HD. I have done everything in my power... That's the story:
I'm on 3.55 kmeaw... installed multiman 2.00.01 with BDEMU2 included (it doesn't let me install the BDEMU 3.55 separately... don't know why?)
changed BD EMULATOR on Hermes... VERIFY USB GAMES on Auto... changed the games folder in GAMES... put the underscore before the game name.. after all... this is the message appearing when I try lo launch split games: You cannot launch games with split big files!
Transfer the game to internal HDD and try again or use [Hermes] option for BD-Emulator type in SETTINGS XMMB column.
please MASTER Dean help me out... to avoid my brain to get smashed!
"X" is usually used for accept in games and in the XMB (Except for some Japanese consoles/Games) so it would be logical to keep it the same way on MultiMAN.
except most japanese games you mean right (like all of them lol)? on ps3 some (minority like 1%) japanese games reads your "accept" button, but not most of it...
anyway, I've tried the multiman version 02.00.01 and copied FFXIII to my External HDD, it got splited and then I did set the BD Emulator to "Hermes" (after I installed the new bdemu file provided here on this topic) restarted, and got an error when trying to launch the game:
While in the File mananager mode using the Up / Down arrow controller keys this happens:
When scrolling down the cursors scroll behind the last item in the list over the "empty" lines rather than simply stopping at the last item.
When scrolling up (on the list longer than the screen) from the possition when the top ".." line was move up out of the view in the last step it will "double jump" - so cursor after one press of the button ends up AVOVE the ".." line rather then ON it which is a bit annoying as you'd usually use it to go one folder up. This is caused by scrolling the list at the same time and while the top of the list is reached.
It would be also nice to have some kind of indication the list is longer than the screen / continuing above or bellow the limist of the screen - like small arrows up / down on the side / top of each list and - or maybe even having the indication in the bottonm file info bar - something like 25 of 50 (or 25 / 50).
And - while in XMMB mode - with large amount of Video files (170) the mM stalls quite often for long time usually me resulting to use the PS button to Quit.
Also - several more or less "cosmetic" observations / suggestion:
While in XMMB mode using the Left / Right keys while trying to get quickly accross several columns left or right by holding the key it has a noticeable delays as it tries to "load" the content of each column even when the key is still held so the "fast" horizontal move is jumpy. I think it would be more smooth to load / paint the column only once the button is released.
Quite often I want to go from Favorited to multiMAN column which currently take 6x Left to get there. While you've implement the vertical roling over of the menu would you consider the horizontal one as well (even as an optional in the setting)? This would "speed " movement between those two columns 3x ai it would take only two moves left or right ...
While scrolling up / down is very nice and smooth (and animated) the roll over from top to botom (or vice versa) isn't and feels pretty unnatural comparing to the rest of the movement in the menu. It simply JUMPS over rather then scroll over as with the normal vertical movement.
Thanks Dean for all your effort and time investet in the developemnt of the far best manager around!
*Small Bug Report* indeed - I must be blind to miss that after several proofreadings ... Boss - any update on extending the post editing limit? Two minutes is really REALLY low - I'd say at least 5 would benefit both users as well as you
And Dean - one more thing - I've noticed that you can overwrite already existing file while copying in the File manager mode without any warnings - is that by design or could this be an additional / optional parameter?

I believe if the games in marked internal in  Game setting, you might receive this error/warning. I was also unable to launch big file games and following worked for me each time for all the games I tried.
1. Delete Games data on PS3 (set BDEMU to Hermes). Or split your file with PS3 filesplitter and transfer (FTP/USB) to external directly.
2. Copy using multiman, from internal to external
3. Launch game from Multiman, it will prompt for installing internal game cache, say yes. After it send you out to XMB go back to Multiman menu
4. Goto  Game setting and Fix permissions.
5. X Launch game
The picture is always displayed with the file info by default so you need to press Select everytime to hide it - can this be swapped around or made selectable in settings?
While zooming using the right stick - Up + Left is zoom in while more logical would be Up + Right ...
When using Left + Right buttons to scroll / browse through the pictures when you'll reach First / Last picture it goes back to menu and then indeed after next press move left or right to the next column. What about having it either to roll over or simply to stop at first / last picture instead?
Apart of above - I've managed somehow to get "USB patch" displayed on top right corner (above the clock in XMMB mode) and can get rid of it anymore ...
May I suggest trying Rebug firmware it covers all the issues many users are having. Deank's MultiMan works flawlessly, with no need for BDVD disks in the drive, you can also swap the "X"/"O" in the rebug settings.
Something I found was nice is, If you change your Regan to Japan and your xmb changes to Japaneses, and like myself you can't read it, your rebug setting panel stays in readable English, making it easy to change setting back when needed.
You can create your own virtual BDVD disk at a size up to 15 gigs if you wish, and fake a number of other things and the BDEMU comes with it. All you need is MultiMan, Rebug firmware and there Version Spoofer, thats it.
Deank and the Rebug team are some of the most trusted and talented developers we have as members on this site, so it makes sense to use Firmware and homebrew from a known source with 100% support. Well it makes sense to me.
