I haven't look into this manager before, but I have to say I like the interface. I may have to check it out.
Drizztz Can you add PSP REMOTE PLAY SUPPORT?
I hope that in the next update they add PSP REMOTE PLAY SUPPORT.
I've no idea if that assumption is correct mouseclicker it was just a guess on how it works.
But first of all you can't play any games from an NTFS drive so they're going to need to be moved for a start, opensplit (pretty sure that's what it is called) can split large files for you so they can be stored on fat32 drives. After you have the split files on a fat32 hdd iris manager will do its thing from there, but I haven't looked at the source as to how it exactly does that.
Thanks for replying, that is actually one thing I was wondering about, if files split with the existing pc utilities are compatible with Iris, or if we need Iris to split them.
I guess I'll have to try it over the weekend and see!
ok please help.. i know I'm a noob but since i don't understand this technology talk... does when i back up my game with this software will i be able to run the game from the xmb or do i have to do some other stuff? plz help.
You have to go into whatever backup manager you use and pick the game from there. Some games will let you launch them from the backup manager and/or without a game disc in the system (it doesn't matter what game disc you use). But in a lot of cases (at least in my experience) this does not work.
So you may have to choose not to "direct boot" which will take you back to the XMB. If done correctly, the game you chose in the manager will now show up instead of the game that is actually in the system. I use Multiman as my backup manager, so there may be some slight differences to what I say, and what you must do. But for them most part I believe that is how a lot of the managers work.
It is also worth stating that some games will not work depending on if you are trying to run them from the PS3's HDD or an external. It all may not make sense at first, but just make sure you take time and read the instructions for whatever manager(s) you use.
