82w ago - Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.56 with the changes outlined below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.56 for v4.XX PS3 CFW

To quote, roughly translated: IMPORTANT: After installing the PKG , restart the PS3 , if it was loaded before Iris Manager

What's New in version 2.56:

  • Added support for devices with NTFS (Windows , read / write)) and EXT2/3/4 (Linux , read only) from "Archive Manager" (support to EXT2/3/4 filesystem partitions in external devices (only read access) from "Archive Manager")
  • Added support for BD Emu PS3_GM01 activated (support to "direct multiboot" discs using the disc structure: dev_bdvd/PS3_GM01/ in "BD emu" mode)

NOTE: Remember that writing is experimental support and assume risks when using it: check with "chkdsk " to ensure that no data is lost or corrupted.

With the partitions "ext" to be in read, no problem that can corrupt anything.

1) plug in the device and wait 5 to 10 seconds for it to mount. If not, unplug and re- plug. Multiple devices can be plugged.

2) the partitions are displayed as " ntfs0 :" a " ntfsX "

3) Remember that it is important to mount the device before unplugging: from the root option "Archive Manager" or leave Iris Manager

  • Added support asynchronous copy to speed up file copying in "Archive Manager"
  • Added option in "Archive Manager" (press SELECT) "Get file / folder info " for information on the number and size of files required to copy.

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

Following up on the previous revision, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.80 followed by IrisMAN v2.80-1 and v2.80-2 Mod from aldostools with the changes detailed below.

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

how do i run ps3 iso games with iris manager?

#116 - aldostools - 71w ago

bigvern1979 inside the RAR of the official Iris Manager, you will find the following archive: patch_tools_libfs_exploreplugin.rar

Follow the instructions found in libfs_notes.txt and explore_plugin_notes.txt

The gamesonic manager already includes these sprx already patched.

If you use Cobra/Mamba, the explore_plugin is not necessary. If you use ISOS or NTFS (that only can play ISOS), the libfs is not necessary either, except for games in JB folder format stored in dev_hdd0.
