multiMAN EMULATOR PACK (SNES GENP VBA FBA FCEU) (20110611).rar (27.83 MB):

multiMAN source publicly available here:

multiMAN ver 02.00.05 FULL (20110616-220000):

Package contains (96 MB):

  • 2321 Game Covers
  • lastGAME
  • ps3SERV
  • bdRESET
  • ebootFIX/ebootMOD
  • Showtime Media Center
  • SNES9x Emulator
  • GENESIS+ Emulator
  • FCEU Emulator
  • VBA Emulator
  • FBA Emulator

There will be no BASE packages from now on. There will be no more WT versions. All emulators, applications and multiMAN are compatible with FW 3.41 and 3.55 KMEAW/REBUG. People using WANINKOKO's firmware should either use "package_finalize" tool to process the installer or better switch to another firmware version. Don't moan! Online updates will still work for WN firmwares, as they are signed.


p.s: For those of you with 02.00.04 (use this update only if you have 02.00.00+):

multiMAN ver 02.00.05 UPDATE (20110616-220000).pkg (8.52 MB)

Perhaps if you set all settings to debug mode and load the self as eboot.bin without npdrm... Don't know if you need debug-fself.

Still waiting 4 answers as you.

Well from version 2.00+ is good enough, imo but the one with the most features is here:

It works without any dongle.

I honestly lost what is the most stable version of MM for normal users without a dongle.

Anonymous ?? It was dean him self. Also evilsperm thanked dean for the ram offset help for lv2 loader, sure evil need his help

The do well the brain washing stuff and hide the fact that dean, evilsperm, garyopa have something to do with the drm dongles. Evilsperm already have wrote a payload that can boot a retail >> dex converted console with idps mod in case it wont boot with 5 beeps as long you dont have modded the SC.

They playing well the game and fake the whole scene. Also for lv2 loader and the patched lv2_kernel. Before they lough about us and call us faker also for the debugger mode and now what they have released ?

Before all the months nothing hase come from them in case of help against drm dongles. Now we have started to work on that part and they first diss us and then magically release stuff depended to that work we wanted to do ?

Just brain washing and hiding the truth.

This weekend an anonymous PlayStation 3 developer has made available a MultiMAN v04.01.00 DEX Update Mod (20120204) PKG for those who own PS3 Debug / Test consoles and wish to enable game back-ups on it.

Download: multiMAN v04.01.00 DEX Update Mod (20120204) PKG

To quote: You need to install the mmCM v04.01.00 released yesterday first on your DEX, then run this UPD PKG to get multiMAN to now run & play games from your HDD

This makes the mmCM function as normal multiMAN on DEX machines running 3.55 just like on CEX, but of course without the Cobra exclusive functions!

Not much more can be said about this release, but it seems to work on QA flag'ed CEX machines also thanks to LV2_Loader and the previous dexl0ve posting
