Finally, the titles need to match their respective PlayStation 3 game ID counterparts and currently PNG image names must be in CAPS to work.
Here are other revisions that led to Flex Manager:
• Pretty Manager - functionally it is the same as the BG mod, but uses a nicer interface. Interface provided by neversun.
• Pretty Manager r2 - very minor speed improvement on the png stuff, not enough though.. paths displayed below game title.
• Pretty Manager r3 - added drizzt84's ansi workaround, regressed the png changes. PNG's should now display while in Hermes mode (requires deleting cache2 folder).
• Pretty Manager r4 - changes to support Hermes v3 since everyone seems to agree it works fine. UI corrections, FTP status currently doesn't display. Direct boot dialog removed. FTP toggle remapped to L3
R3 toggles attempting to direct-boot.

• Open Manager v2.0 Gaia Beta 1 - Hermes v3 patching enabled (L1). Graphic / Background changed (thanks to klush) to allow safe area. Buttons remapped (exit key removed, use menu to exit). Direct loading removed (it works with only 10% of games). All my old patches.

• CB Manager v2 - UTF-8 Fix. Re-worked the gui. Peek Fix. XMB Start removed. Cleaned some code. Buttons re-mapped. Atrac AT3 removed. Fixed Permissions not working properly. Fixing Permissions will start in "/dev_hdd0/game/" and changes ALL directorys and files to chmod777/666. Asking YES/NO somehow broke it for PS3 Slim.
