This application/tool will take your PS1 ISO or BIN/CUE game file(s) and create a PKG to install, This created PKG will now make that PS1 game direct boot from the XMB. This app uses the code and PS1 process from IrisManager and has modified/added some code to achieve the task of auto booting on the XMB.
You also have the ability in the GUI to change name, add custom art (ICON0 and PIC1) Sound, and animated icons (ICON1.PAM) to the PKG before final creation..

- When Booting A PSone game from XMB, If you hold down R1 you can enter IrisManager's: PSX Emulator Settings Menu.
- Playing PS1 Games on Iris then entering into multiMAN can causes conflicts when done multiple times and can create a freeze. Please beware of this conflict between Iris and multiMAN., best way to avoid the freezing is to reboot your PS3 after each apps use.
