March 13, 2011 // 9:05 pm - Background: I was tired of the fact that there was no decent resource for finding games based on their TITLE_ID and/or TITLE itself.

Soultion: I developed an online tool. It will allow you to submit a PS3 games "param.sfo" file, have the results not only outputted for you, but added to the PS3Index database. This way everybody can have access.

Problem: I only have a certain amount of backed up games for which I can index.

Soultion: You guys! I need as many people as possible to submit as many games as possible.

Where: PS3Index

Usage Guide: PS3Index Guide (I recommend looking over the guide, it really will make large submissions easier.)

Hopefully we can get a heap of people to submit games and get a decent database going. I recognise that there are websites such as Sony Index, but they are far from complete. You can also just view the database in its current format.

If you have any problems/questions/complaints/compliments/ramblings leave them in this thread.

Cheers

As a follow-up to the PS3Index Online PS3 Game Param.sfo Community Database I have released a small PS3Index PC application I worked on today.

Details are as follows:

What: Another way to submit games to the PS3Index. With this application, you browse to the root of your backed up PS3 games, it will find the param.sfo files we are interested in, then you can upload them to the PS3Index.

Where: PS3Index.exe

Guide: Here

Filename: PS3Index.exe

Each drop down box links you to a different set of pages:

'View database by Serial Number' sorts the games by Serial Number.

'View database by Name' sorts the games by Name.

'View database by PS3 System' sorts the games by PS3 System Version (that the game needs to boot)

Covers are now available next to the game. I just used the ones from the latest multiman.

If anyone knows the server link to which multiman pulls its game covers from, it would help me too.

also it would be great for people on Kmeaw 3.55 to see what new games are 3.55/3.56/3.60

would be awesome, thanks!

I have added what was requested. There is now a drop down box to sort by PS3_SYSTEM_VER, but still; dont trust it to be accurate.

Unfortunately no. There is just nothing in the file that leads to being able to detect modification or not.

The best I can think of is some sort of reporting feature.

I have had to add a reCAPTCHA system after waking up today and finding thousands of fake games had been added into the database.

Good one, I had the same idea weeks ago. But what I wanted to do, was an database for EBOOT.BIN and PARAM.SFO for the people who modified it, and forgot to back up. But never mind, keep it up !

It is certainly possible. The problem is that the current 'PS3_SYSTEM_VER' can't be trusted - People are submitting their param.sfo files after they modify them to work with a certain firmware (3.55/3.41 etc.)

I was actaully considering dropping the 'PS3_SYSTEM_VER' field altogether.

I will add it in a minute, see how it goes.
