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 up on Hybrid Manager v1.00, today PlayStation 3 developer BillGates returns with Hybrid Manager v1.02 followed by Monster Manager v1.02 by faxtron, which are new Iris Manager forks with details below.

Download: hybrid_manager.pkg

To quote, roughly translated: HYBRID Manager Update 2 (Oct.04.2014)

  • Updated files ENGLISH and SPANISH language.

In HYBRID options User Interface (GUI) is in ENGLISH only because in that part of the original code IRIS does not use language files. I have corrected this and added those lines of translation.

The other languages ​​are included in the measure can someone translate these would be the lines of text to be translated:

[Register or Login to view code]

From Faxtron (via elotrolado.net/hilo_aplicacion-iris-manager-v2-93_1862716_s4430#p1738360342 and elotrolado.net/hilo_aplicacion-iris-manager-v2-93_1862716_s4650#p1739139449 and daxhordes.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=126068#p126068) comes Monster Manager which is also a direct port of Iris Manager 2.93 compatible with PS3 CFW 3.41 to 4.75.

Download: MONSTER MANAGER.pkg / MONSTER MANAGER 1.01.pkg (Mirror) / MONSTER MANAGER 1.02.pkg / Monster-Add-Ons_4.75.pkg / MONSTERMR Priority ON_OFF.rar / MONSTERMANAGER-master.7z

Rough translation: Here I leave the upgrade manager Iris fork that I have and leave again in case any of you used as the preferred Hybrid arrives. Iris is still basically in disguise but with support CFW not supported by the original version, including the new 4.70.

This compiled and prabado in my console with Cobra CFW 4.66 but is supposed to work perfect in 4.70 including fan control because you add their corresponding payloads / mamba.

Now I have not tried at 4.70 because I'm not on installing new CFW until you see a cobra CFW 4.70. If anyone is in 4.70 and want a prostitute Iris without there you have it.

All thanks to Estwald as usual we can not forget is your project not mine. Greetings!

Monster Manager 1.02 Monster add-ons for:

  • explore_plugin_475.sprx
  • libfs_patched.sprx
  • ps1_emu_patched2.self
  • ps1_netemu.self

Priority on and off for this manager (linked above).

Thanks to brunolee for the priority on and off tool. This fork is made by me.




v1.01 Changelog:

New on Monster Manager v1.01:

  • Support for all CFWs
  • Support for new CFWs 4.70
  • Support for all CFWs mamba and for new CFWs 4.70
  • Support fan control for all CFWs and for new CFWs 4.70
  • Habib already tested on CFW 4.70 and fixed a bug in CFW 4.70

.SPRX modules patched to 4.70 cfw scoring two modules .sprx inside the main folder of the manager in question (and Irisman monster, and incorporates gamesonic), then restart the manager, these modules give you greater compatibility disc-read JB games.

v1.02 Changelog:

  • Updated support for CFW 4.66 DEX.
  • Updated support for CFW 4.70 DEX.
  • Updated support for CFW 4.75.
  • Put default values Estwald fan control

Iris Manager remains a support CFWs 2.93 with the official does not offer.

Finally, Play Manager is also based on Iris Manager v2.93 official and recompiled by _Slash_ (via elotrolado.net/hilo_aplicacion-iris-manager-v2-93_1862716_s4480#p1738493009 and daxhordes.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=127115#p127115 and elotrolado.net/hilo_aplicacion-iris-manager-v2-93_1862716_s4650#p1739138462) as a direct port of Iris Manager.

Download: Play Manager.pkg / libfs_explore_plugin.7z / Play Manager v1.04 Fix.pkg / explore475.7z

Rough translation: From what I see I am not the only one tired of seeing other managers based on iris lose the essence of the masterpiece that left us Estwald, so I gave myself the task of adding support for CFW that no current iris.

After several weeks doing tests, I leave my small contribution that baptized him as Play Manager and the new features included are:

  • Added support for DEX CFW 4.46, 4.53 DEX, DEX 4.55, 4.60, 4.65, 4.65 DEX, 4.66, 4.66 and 4.70 DEX.
  • Added support for CFW 3.55 Mamba, DEX 3.55, 4.21, 4.21 DEX, DEX 4.30 4.30, 4.31, 4.40, 4.41, 4.46 DEX, 4.50, 4.50 DEX, 4.53 DEX, DEX 4.55, 4.60, 4.65, 4.65 DEX, 4.66, DEX 4.66 and 4.70.
  • Previous music files were removed to add 3 new songs.
  • The defaults of the fans for a more aggressive were modified.
  • The path to the folder "iris" used to copy files to the folder USB Manager by "play" device was changed.

An example of the last point: If using loose games folders (jailbreak) and copy the patched need for greater compatibility (libfs_patched.sprx and explore_plugin_xxx.sprx) files, only created in the root of your USB device the "play" folder within it copied the files before and later mentioned in the manager (having already connected your USB device on the PS3) enter "Tools" and select the "Copy from / dev_usb / play the Play Manager folder" and began to copy the files to the folder manager.

Assuming you are in the 4.66 CFW files would be as follows:

[Register or Login to view code]

This process also serves to add wallpapers, within the capeta "play" have to create a new folder called "pictures" and within the funds placed copied. Example:

[Register or Login to view code]

They can also add your favorite song (in case you do not like the songs you add) with this method, just put the song in the "play" folder with the name "music.mod". Example:

[Register or Login to view code]

All this they can do it in one step, thus saving considerable time to copy all the files that you add.

I leave the download links and Play Manager and explore_plugin libfs several files and patched CFW (linked above).

Update: I leave the corrected version of the Manager Play (Play Manager v1.04 Fix, linked above) now no longer gives black screen at startup.

New in Fix Play Manager v1.04:

  • Updated support for CFW 4.75.
  • The choice of profiles for fans is added.

Greetings.

Following up on Iris Manager 2.93 (Unofficial 4.65 CFW Support Update) by BillGates and IRISMAN.pkg (v3.30+) by Aldostools, today PlayStation 3 developer BillGates returns with a new Iris Manager fork dubbed Hybrid Manager v1.00 with details below.

Download: hybrid_manager.pkg / hybrid_manager.pkg (Mirror)

To quote, roughly translated: I personally prefer that this thread is still active and not create another to not that Estwald back and not see that happening, this is the thread of IRIS, here is where I was born and live the true spirit of IRIS and its people, here I started D_SKYWALK, followed Estwald, ALDO and then you all good.

And finally I've never been but I get daring and wonder like crazy and sometimes I get sidetracked but hey at least this time I came out something useful and functional, as aldo said the thing was in COPY / PASTE (and a little beyond that everything copied did not work the same on both sides).

Well there goes the IRIS_2.93 with support for CFW_465 MAMBA, with 2 or 3 slight modifications to my taste but only at the interface level without interfering with the original classic IRIS, is a PKG that installs pre-configured to IRIS DISCLESS user so that the newly-arrived less intrepid and have no problems with the ISO support.

Also I include values ​​FAN threshold temperature a bit different (more aggressive) than those of Estwald but very useful in the area of ​​the CARIBBEAN where I live, if you want to return to the classical values ​​just have to Restore Defaults in the menu CONTROL FAN.

Advice: If the covers are hand JPG MULTIMAN style that copied to "HD0 / game / HYBRIDMAN / covers /" the visual style or add GUI looks better in this mode.

Then this would come to be the LITE version, I have created a FULL version which includes all the covers to MULTIMAN but the resulting PKG is around 100mb and I have bandwidth to upload it, soon I will, I promise.

GREETINGS!

Hybrid Manager v1.00 by BillGates

Hybrid Manager is another fork of Iris Manager, based on the original version 2.93 with added support for 4.65, pre-configured for Discless and more aggressive settings for the fan controller.

Changes in v1.00:

  • Changed name to HYBRID Manager and title id to HYBRIDMAN
  • Added MAMBA support for CFW 4.65
  • Added 4.65 CFW Support

Changes in v1.01:

  • Added option to switch from the Japanese Standard buttons (button behavior “CIRCLE” mode
  • Added option to disable the screen “Welcome or Splash Screen” (these 2 new options are in the menu to change the GUI)
  • Correction minute details in the user interface BIG_COVERS_FX
  • The “FTP Server” is not pre-configured to start after installation (in previous versions the installer HYBRID autoiniciaba the FTP server, this could lead to nuisance warnings if RED was not (good) set)
