77w ago - Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.65 followed by IrisMAN 2.65-2 (Mod) by aldostools with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.65 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.65 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / GIT / IRISMAN.pkg / IRISMAN_src.rar

To quote, roughly translated: What's new in version 2.65:

  • Added supports for CFW 4.50 DEX and 4.53.
  • Added tools to create, extract and patch ISOs (Error 0x80010009) from PC (with source code and can be compiled at least from MinGW and Cygwin).
  • Added the ability to create, copy, delete ISOs (except in EXTx ) and extract ISOs from Iris Manager.
  • Added Error 0x80010009 fix for updates and ISOs (except EXTx) from the "Check Files" option.
  • New rawseciso (source code included in the. rar) with some bugs fixes and improvements against errors (even allows disconnect/reconnect the device), and includes support for HDD0, USB00X through a new mode (see launch_iso_game () in Iris Manager source code) and a mixed mode file/list of sectors for the Build ISO (see launch_iso_build () in Iris Manager source code).
  • In Archive Manager now supports Build ISO in all devices (FAT32/NTFS/EXTx) and detects extensions .mkv, .avi, .mp4, .ogm, .mpg as multimedia video files to launch "Showtime".
  • Now the current game is saved to return to that game during the game refresh and the last game launched to show when connect the device that contains it.
  • Added exception in the Archive Manager to detect if an ISO launched from a "BD ISO" folder is taken as Bluray Video.
  • Fixed several bugs like filenames too long in Archive Manager and added other small details and optimizations (such as now when a device with NTFS/EXTx partitions is detected, the USB icon appears blue during the waiting time before mounting.

Cobra Mode

Cobra mode only activates when Iris Manager is configured in *Payload without Disk* and syscall 8 de cobra in 4.46 is detected. In the mode is not necessary to patch explore_plugin.srpx but could be neccesary to patch libfs.sprx.

Supported Features

  • From NTFS, EXTx, /dev_hdd0, /dev_usb00x. drive:

PS3 games ISOS:

You can find them in folder "/PS3ISO". ICON.PNG you wil see it from the ISO itself but you can use a .PNG (wide) image or .JPG (stretched) with the same name of the ISO like a external caratule. That same caratule (i will have to fix this...) (The ones from Multiman with Titled ID). You could use splitted ISOS (if you need it) with the following extension: name.iso.0, name.iso.1,... name.iso.9 (2048 bytes/sector). ISOS can be inside /PS3ISO.

ISOS from DVD:

You can perform this only from "Archive Manager" (default mode). ISOS could be splited (if you need this) with the following extension: name.iso.0, name.iso.1,... name.iso.9 (2048 bytes/sector)

ISOS from Blu-ray:

Only from "Archive Manager" (Autodected of UDF by default, all in the same folder BDISO). ISOS could be splitted (if you need this) with the following extensions: name.iso.0, name.iso.1,... name.iso.9 (2048 bytes/sector)

  • From /dev_hdd0, /dev_usb00x drive:

PS3 games with scrambled files: Same mode with, Cobra's mount.

PS1 ISOS: Uses Iris manager support.

  • From /dev_hdd0 drive:

PS2 ISOS:

CD (without audio tracks and only ISO of 2048 bytes/sector) and DVD (2048 bytes/sector). Not supported USB flashdrives in this mode. ISOS could be inside /PS2ISO folder.

  • From any NTFS and EXTx drive and in Archive Manager:

From ANY device:

PS3 ISOS, BD and DVD from any folder. Using Autodetect.

Dinamic creation of ISOS:

Select one file, push SELECT and use "Build ISO from file" option to go back to XMB with Data DVD, ISO.

Dinamic creation of ISOS, with Showtime launch:

Select and push X over a file extension .avi, mp4 or .mkv (I created a DVD ISO of 32 GB). If Showtime is already installed this will execute automatically, select Bluray drive and done. (Showtime is slow to recognize and then play that file, but then plays faster)

Note about dinamic creation:

The trick is to create a small file in HDD0 with the name "iris_manager.biso" which contains ISO information and then add data sectos from the file.

Note on ISOS: It's VERY IMPORTANT that those files not be FRAGMENTED to avoid problems.

  • Archive Manager:

Has certain capacity to detect ISOS to mount them from any folder (avoid using PS1 ISOS), Creating ISOS dynamically, having only one file (SELECT and "Build ISO from files) or just executing from Showtime with files .avi, .mp4, .mpg, .ogm y .mkv. ISOS must be 2048bytes/sector and have .ISO extension or if it's fragmented in many parts, use extensions like: .iso.0, .iso.1.... .iso.9...

  • Options of ISOS in the GUI:

If you push SELECT we can select an ISO as favourite or unmount if it's NTFS or EXTx.

PS3 favorites are taken as preference to show them/execute them to /dev_hdd0, then ISOS and last /dex_usb00x

We can create, copy, delete and extact ISOS, we can patch them (except in EXTx) via "Checking files" depends disposible options for each game.

  • PSP games: No support.
  • Creating PS3 games ISOS:

From Iris manager, the last new tool *makeps3iso* (included in the .RAR files as PC ps3iso utilities (with src).zip or with Cobra ODE tool. You can do this from scrambled files: http://www.cobra-ode.com/downloads/Cobra_ODE_GenPS3iso_v2.1.rar

NOTE: Is recommended to use patchps3iso with the latest version of your CFW, then create the ISO in your PC. This will modity PARAM.SFO and SELF/SPRX in case of this you need it.

Some examples:

patchps3iso my_iso.iso 4.46 -> Just for one file.

patchps3iso my_iso.iso.0 4.46 -> for split ISOS

Finally, from aldostools:

New in 2.65-1:

  • Added most (if not all) the features of Iris Manager 2.65, not annoying ads,
  • Display of file sizes in File Manager,
  • Added support for SITE MMQUIT in FTP to quit to XMB using my FTP Client,
  • Cobra plugins are not unloaded unless you hold X when the manager starts.

New in 2.65-2:

  • Fixed label for Build ISO menu.
  • Menu now use for: O = Cancel, X = Accept, /\ = No.
  • Added ability to abort in the “calc_entries” stage of the build ISO process

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 2.81 followed by IrisMAN v2.81-1 Mod from aldostools with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.81 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / irismanager-4-x_animated.pkg.335.v2.81.pkg / GIT / IrisMAN v2.81-1 (Mod) / IRISMAN_src.rar

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.81:

  • Improvements in creating ISO (makeps3iso) that solves the problem with MGS4. We recommend upgrading to this version, but the problem has not been presented as only happens in very specific cases.
  • Improved Iris Manager so that it is not updating the free size of disk drives each time you change directory (which brings slow to show files)

IMPORTANT: After installing the PKG, restart the PS3, if Iris Manager was loaded before.

Changelog 2.81-1:

  • Added changes from official Iris Manager 2.81, Added shortcuts to Internet Browser and Showtime.

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 - 73w ago
aldostools's Avatar
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.
