February 15, 2013 // 12:34 am - Following up on his previous update, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald (aka Hermes) has updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.0 followed by v2.01 with the changes outlined below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.0 / v2.01 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.0 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.0 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Iris Manager v2.0 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #3) / Iris Manager v2.01 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.01 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager Wiki / Iris Manager / Home Launcher / PSDK3 v2 GIT

To quote, roughly translated: Well, given that D_Skywalk is "low" paternity and asked me to open a new thread, to update it, that I do, taking advantage we have new version My GIT sources and personal with all the necessary.

Iris Manager v2.0 What's new:

  • Ported entire project to PSL1GHT v2 (hence the version jump)
  • Added languages ​​within Iris Manager: press START, go to Tools and in the second option you will see "Pitinglis". Well, give with X until "talk" Christian [+ laughs]
  • There is an option "Custom (from file)" to add other languages, such as Catalan or other individuals of our land. I have not included in because all people will begin to ask their language, and I can not deal with all that when I add new stuff!. Still, if you send me the translations for me to include them in and so that other people can use them, especially
  • Now is not verified the file language.ini version. That is, if the language has the required entry that Iris need, It will be taken if not, ignore it and use the one with default (this should have done so long ago [+ laughs])
  • Fixed the problem that the FTP files are not truncated.
  • Fixed the problem that Iris gave error opening more than two files in asynchronous transfers. Fixed the problem of directory and file permissions to delete.
  • Added a new option in "Tools" for those who have broken the blu-ray drive, that you can launch PSX games in ISO and ignore, if possible, all that goes into BDVD and makes the mounting that Miralatijera asked me to launch the games from APP_HOME (basically the same as it was to mount on hdd0 over BDVD using the option BD Emu, but now it is always enabled and mounted in /dev_usb00x on /dev_bdvd). For now is all experimental, so be patient until Miralatijera give qith the key, now It will be more easier than I provide software support and provided tools and sources to compile
  • This will not like Miralatijera [+ laughs]: to launch PSX, removes "discotheque" or "semaphore". This is so, because in PSX must observe the green LED when changing discs. In all other ways, I respect it [haha]

Iris Manager v2.01 What's new:

  • Added Norwegian as a language and a conversion routine utf8_ansi language strings.
  • Added UTF8 to Ansi conversion chains in language (this is important because any code above 128, became ill)

Is this a better option than multiman now?

I keep seeing updates for GameSonic and Iris managers but cant find the latest multiman and haven't seen a front page release for ages.

Can anyone link me and/or explain the new advantages of Iris manager... looks like I have been out of the loop a while now I see ISO is supported.

Last update I had was the last Roger CFW.

Cheers

Download: Iris Manager v2.80 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / GIT / IrisMAN v2.80-1 (Mod) / IrisMAN v2.80-1 (Source Code) / IrisMAN v2.80-2 (Mod) / IrisMAN v2.80-2 (Source Code)

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.80:

  • The ISOs now will take the title name from PARAM.SFO (so far took the file name) and also will show the background image of the game in the Options dialog.
  • New support for PSX Cobra / Mamba from "Disc-Less Payload" : works with the same versatility as the old, but adding PSX support PSX for NTFS/EXTx units, thanks to the new plugin that allows you to change up to 8 ISOs of PSX ( unplugging / replugging the device NTFS / EXTx in the latter case to change iso)
  • Changes for PSX in Cobra / Mamba "Disc-Less Payload" mode with respect to the old are:

    1) All Games now use the plugin by default. The games stored in /dev_hdd0 and /dev_usb00x can use the old emulation (PSX payload) selecting "old_emu" or "old_netemu".

    2) To eject/insert a disc, the changes are as follows (remember that only from the Cobra/Mamba plugin in "Disc-Less Payload" mode):

  • If the game is in NTFS / EXTx, you must unplug / plug the USB device.
  • If the game is stored in /dev_hdd0 or /dev_usb00x, it will use the first device found with a FAT partition (device '/dev_usb' ) and if this fails, then it will use the first non-FAT USB device connected (NTFS / EXTx for example). Remember that unpluging the LED will flash.

    3) If the ps1_rom.bin is used and L2 button is held down on the pad when the game is launched, it is also possible to run the rom from NTFS / EXTx without a CD to copy/delete the data from the memory card that is using the game (this is useful for handling Internal_MC.VM1). You must exit from the emulator after finishing, as the old PSX payload used.

    4) Leaving the PSX emulator it is possible to launch the game from the disc, but in doing so, the video will be set to PAL/NTSC depending on the region of your system, and you must select the memory card from the emulator and keep in mind that if the game does not belong to your region, it will freeze.

Changelog 2.80-1:

  • Added changes from official Iris Manager 2.80
  • Added "Download Latest webMAN" under Tools menu (Cobra CFW only)

Changelog 2.80-2:

  • Increased the font size in File Manager
  • Added display of the path for the selected game to Options menu
