February 25, 2014 // 6:32 pm - Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.93 followed by v2.93-1, v2.93-2, v2.93-3, v2.93-4, v2.93-5, v2.93-6, v2.93-7, v2.93-8, v2.93-9, v2.93-10, v2.93-11 and v2.93-12 Mods by aldostools with the changes outlined below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.93 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / iris_manager.pkg.842.v2.93.pkg (Mirror) / irismanager-4-x_animated.pkg.527.v2.93.pkg / GIT / IRISMAN.pkg / IRISMAN_src.rar / Iris Manager 2.93 (Unofficial 4.65 CFW Support Update) by BillGates

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.93:

  • Updated the ISO tools (PC_ps3iso_utilities_with_src_v1.8.zip) to patch ISO games with required FW version up to 4.60 in patchps3iso
  • By request of Lustar ( GameTDB ) I have introduced a new system to update the covers (covers): Iris Manager now use the User Agent "IrisManager - v2.93" to access that server.
  • In the game updates, the User Agent was changed also to simulate a PC
  • Added support ( for Cobra / Mamba ) for Bluray movies, DVD Video and MKV (using "BluRay Drive" on Showtime).
  • In the "Homebrew" category the homebrews/PSN are listed first and in the new "Films" category (only the movies are listed)

NOTE 1: As a reminder, pressing R3 / L3 you access the various categories.

  • Supports internal (hdd0) and external hard drives in NTFS, EXTx or FAT format.
  • The bluray movies should be in the root folder /BDISO, the DVD movies in /DVDISO (as in multiMAN). Subfolders are allowed and a JPG with the same name as the ISO is supported as cover (e.g. my_film.iso -> my_film.jpg as cover). The display name is taken from the file itself, so it is recommended to edit it if it is too long or non descriptive.
  • The MKV should go in the root folder /MKV. Subfolders are allowed and a JPG with the same name as the ISO is supported as cover (e.g. my_film.mkv -> my_film.jpg as cover). The display name is taken from the file itself, so it is recommended to edit it if it is too long or non descriptive. After selecting a movie, an ISO is created dynamically to associate with the BDVD unit, then Showtime is launched to play it.

NOTE 2: For films the Options menu (accessed with SELECT) is not available.

NOTE 3: We have also made ​​other changes to the code level, such as inclusion in main.h of the tags that define the internal flags for the games / movies. Hope that I have not screwed it up in the translation of the code.

NOTE 4: In principle, the support for /BDISO and /DVDISO was included thinking on those who have a broken the Bluray drive. Since we were doing this, MKV support was added (creating a dynamically ISO) if someone wants to use such films using covers. Showtime can play perfectly these movies with its NTFS support and it also allows you to navigate freely between directories: this option is mainly for geeks.

IrisMAN v2.93-1 Mod Changelog:

This is an "unofficial" version of Iris Manager 2.93 by Estwald/D-Skywalk. This version includes all the new Cobra/Mamba payload and ISO features added by Estwald. The changes that I made are mainly related to the user interface (buttons layout are more XMB-like, quick access to File Manager, progress bar when game list is scanned or file permissions are applied, colors, 15 gui modes, etc.).

It also includes the Payloads for 4.41DEX/4.46DEX/4.50DEX/4.53CEX/4.55CEX from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ on the external drives.

Changelog 2.93-1:

  • Added the features from official Iris Manager 2.93
  • Added support for Blu-ray and DVD ISOS and MKV videos on Cobra/Mamba (4.46, 4.53, 4.55)
  • Use separated icons for MKV and DVD ISO
  • Scan /VIDEO and /MOVIES folders.
  • /MKV path can be customized in settings.ini

Side note: The integration of these changes was very hard this time, due Estwald updated a lot of code in 2.93 documenting the internal flags. I had to analyze a lot of code that was already implemented in IRISMAN

Changelog 2.93-2:

  • Fixed a bug reading the path for covers from settings.ini
  • Moved settings.ini to USRDIR (to make it easier to update using a PKG)

Changelog 2.93-3:

  • Added more GUI customization options to settings.ini
  • Now the EBOOT in /dev_hdd0/game folder is checked first to know if the game needs to be patched
  • Added shortcut buttons for faster GUI selection in Global Settings menu.

Changelog 2.93-4:

  • Fixed a regression in the selection of background pictures
  • Added display of game version to more menu

Changelog 2.93-5:

  • Cached game list for faster start up; added patch for PSID; improved patch for IDPS; unmount /dev_rewrite and /dev_habib. (Added cached game list for fast start up of the manager, added option to patch the PSID and various improvements to the patch of the Console ID).

Changelog 2.93-6:

  • Fixed the patches of PSID and Console ID (idps) on 4.55.
  • Also fixed the broken feature that allows to auto launch a PS1 game stored in USRDIR/ps1_iso.
  • Added some tweaks to improve the load time of the manager.

Changelog 2.93-7:

  • Fixed a freeze issue when the NTFS device is mounted and the cached list already contained NTFS games.
  • Fixed the display of ICON0 when browsing dev_hdd0/GAMES folder in File Manager
  • Added support to display ICON0 when browsing the /dev_hdd0/home folder in File Manager
  • Added shortcut SELECT+L3 / SELECT+R3 to refresh the game list (L3 / R3 alone were mapped to select the game list mode: Favorite/Homebrew/Films)

Changelog 2.93-8:

  • Added support for .VM1 / .cfg saved in the same folder of the PSX isos stored in /PSXISO and /ps1_iso folders (previously they were using a common file for all isos)
  • Removed the annoying "PSX Options Saved" message when saving a memory card option.
  • More bug fixes for the cached game list.
  • Fixed display of covers for PSXISOs.

Changelog 2.93-9:

  • New background mode that auto-displays the PIC1.PNG of the selected game.
  • The settings.ini now is not replaced when the manager is updated. The default settings are now stored in settings_default.ini
  • Added option to hide the Sort Mode label displayed at the bottom of the Coverflow

In this version, the PIC1.PNG is allowed to be displayed for NTFS (ISO) games. If you experience any freeze issue, change the ShowPIC1 to 2 in settings.ini (e.g ShowPIC1 = 2) Please report back if I have to revert the option to the previous default: ShowPIC1 = 1

Changelog 2.93-10: (Update - MAR/31/14)

  • Added support to display covers from multiMAN's covers_retro folder (PS1/PS2).
  • Added display of TITLE ID for PS1/PS2 in Game Options menu (TRIANGLE)
  • Fixed issue that closed the Global Settings menu when NTFS was refreshed.

Changelog 2.93-11: (Update - APR/8/14)

  • Added PSP ISO support on Cobra CFW (thanks to master deank for webMAN's source code)
  • Added fix game option to File Manager menu (fix error 80010009 on games that require a higher fw version)
  • Added "Refresh Game List" option to Global Menu (SELECT+R3)
  • Minor tweaks to the GUI

Changelog 2.93-12: (Update - APR/13/14)

  • Some bugs fixed.
  • Some new features.

Iris Manager 2.93 (Unofficial 4.65 CFW Update by BillGates via elotrolado.net/hilo_aplicacion-iris-manager-v2-93_1862716_s4090) (Update - SEP/27/14)

  • Added 4.65 CFW Support

Note: MAMBA moment only present in CFW originally decided Estwald in Iris_293, I recommend a Cobra CFW (if possible Habib 465 v1.02) for theme support and other ISOs. (payload and everything else extracted from Irisman. Aldo Thanx!)

Following their previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.95 followed by v2.96, v2.97 and v3.00 with details below.

Download: irismanager-4-x.rar (v2.95) / irismanager-4-x.rar (v2.96) / irismanager-4-x.rar (v2.97) / irismanager-4-x.rar (v3.00) / GIT

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.95:

Hey there, I allowed myself to add some changes to Iris, things people "neglected", fixes bugs, etc:

New in version 2.95:

  • Fixed Iris ISO tools and PC (now generates MGS V iso correctly)
  • Fix Error 009 now works to firm 4.90 (for games over console firmware)
  • Added support for new firmware Mamba (NZV thanks), and added new firmwares supported LIC.DAT fix for the firmware 4.55 (thanks Alexander, Aldo, Pelayin_5, Faxtron ...)

(Sorry I can not upload the file to the server EOL, but can not access via ftp for quite [+ laughs])

Well, notes on the subject:

First, I continue with the firmware 4.55 (that's why it has fixed the error and fix LIC.DAT 009, I needed). The issue of ISOS, the ruling was that when calculating the space sector could be added with more empty entries ... something that for example, if I create an ISO and extract, copy files, etc, gives no problem but if it gives certain games when copying your data, they input any invalid file or something appears. Anyway, it seems solved.

About support new firmware, in theory it works until 4.76. I say theoretically because obviously I could try being in 4.55. The Mamba support includes firmware that are not supported by Iris Manager in practice, curiously, like the fan control. That opens the possibility that if someone adds those missing firmware, because there is already the work done .

I think that a FW I have not used, I can not test and that probably is obsolete because, well ... it's about what you need to add, as in my case: that at 4.55 and I see that I need a patch and I see you looking, someone added 4.55 (in Irisman specifically version of Alexander).

By the way, returning to Mamba ... I have not reviewed and do not remember things I would have changed by bugs or compatibility: added as it is new, I have not noticed any problem and how it works, let my old binary Mamba but opto by new, since it is the present / future line.

As far does not play anything of scene and do not know where the wind goes, etc, I beg you to apologize if I make some fallito or someone who thinks he should be in the credits, it is not. It has not been easy to find things and it was a surprise to see the work of NZV on github (which Curran [+ laughs])

PS: One comes home for Christmas, well specifically heavy gigs yesterday ... but not in my plans again, just do specific things to notice ... as of now. Being cows, if you touch something, I have time [+ laughs]

PD2: I think it was not necessary to mention it, but all the changes have to source on github.

What's New in version 2.96:

  • Added Controlfan from sm.sprx for Mamba / Cobra (if sm.self not active).

What's New in version 2.97:

  • Added monitor temperature during the game, using monitor.prx (thank WebMan for the libraries used (a deank and others involved sceners))

Use:

In the XMB (press the PS button during gameplay):

  • SELECT + L2: On / Off display temperatures
  • SELECT + TRIANGLE: download monitor.sprx system module

What's New in version 3.00:

NOTE: After installing the PKG is recommended restarting the console, if you've already pre-loaded Iris Manager

  • Sm.sprx and monitor.sprx unified and compatible with sm.self.
  • Added new functions to monitor and "Monitor Settings" screen new Iris Manager (Press START to enter the "Global Options" -> "Tools" -> "Monitor Settings".

Thanks for the Update! But i wonder if theres a chance the PS2_DISC-flag gets enabled again?

Was designed for SingStar in v1.41.08 and seemed to work quite well (just tested that on latest rebug)
