Showtime PS3 Media Player Version 3.5.003.ge7371.dirty (February 4th, 2012) compiled for multiMAN.

Download: SHOWTIME.SELF Version 3.5.003.ge7371.dirty / SHOWTIME.SELF Version 3.5.003.ge7371.dirty

Save the downloaded file as: /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/SHOWTIME.SELF

  • Added: XMB videos and last folder visible in Showtime
  • Added: Return to multiMAN when using the EXIT icon in to top right corner of main Showtime Interface

Since version 02.05.00 of multiMAN you can update your SHOWTIME within multiMAN, by going to XMMB Video tab -> Press [TRIANGLE] while "Start Showtime" is selected -> Update.

You can also update your showtime.self by deleting it from multiMAN's USRDIR folder and play a video - you'll be prompted to download the updated version. Be advised that in multiMAN versions 04.00.00+ SHOWTIME.SELF is located under USRDIR/sys folder.

You need BDEMU2 file.

But if your on 3.55 CFW, with the latest Multiman and BDEMU2, you do not need LV2 patcher, it is built in Multiman...

I have LV2 and Multiman, what am I missing?

It as been at least 6 months since I played my PS3 and I'm not entirely sure what I have missed to allow games to be played. I run the LV2 Patcher v9 before I run Multiman, but games such as Uncharted: Drake's Fortune does not seem to work even though I had luck doing it before. Am I missing something like an update or pkg file that I need to install?

Here it is ( with updates HERE), I would suggest you install the "full" version for all the features if you already have multiMAN installed just install the update.
