February 11, 2011 // 10:40 pm - Awhile back we reported on a PS3 System File Editor followed by a Linux Edition, and today JizzaBeez has made available his own version of a PS3 PARAM.SFO Editor homebrew application.

Download: PS3 PARAM.SFO Editor v1.0.0.0

To quote: I decided to fully research the PARAM.SFO file and make a tool to edit any aspect of it.

And it seems to work really well as far as reading/writing, although I don't have a PS3 to test the saves...

So if anyone experiences a problem then give me all the details...

How to use:

1) Open a PARAM.SFO file in the editor.
2) Right-Click to edit, then save.

Finally, in related news $n!pR has released a similar application dubbed SFOPrint 1.00b (sfoprint - followed by SFOPrint 1.00c (sfoprint - who states the following:

I know there are a bunch of sfo editors/readers but thought I'd try my hand at this. I've made a sfo command line reader that outputs individual parameters. Maybe someone finds this useful...

Example from a save file:

TITLE : God of War III
SUB_TITLE : Destroyed Chambers
DETAIL : Difficulty: Titan (Hard)
Play time: 6:24:34
SAVEDATA_DIRECTORY : BCUS98111-100419183005

Not sure what you mean, if I try to play the demo it asks me to update so that's why I'm trying to edit the PARAM.SFO so it looks for 3.41.

Maybe I misread what you said, what did you mean?

I'm also getting the same as you, but I was on the understanding you didn't need to do it to a demo, it just runs on your internal drive after install. Sorry I've not been up long I could be wrong, and you may have other reasons.

I tried using this to edit the PARAM.SFO for Killzone 3 Demo but I encountered this error:

"Index was out or range. Must be non_negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index."

Any idea on what is causing this?

I've attached a screen of what I get after I've clicked off the error screen and back onto the main window.

if you only want to copy between 2 PS3s with same account you can copy it via ftp to pc.. start the game at the "new" ps3 and overwrite the savedata afterwards... (that's the way i did it with savegames which didn't let me copy them)

btw: nice tool for sharing savegames

This is pretty cool, I guess. For people who don't like using hex editor.
