October 2, 2010 // 8:38 am - Here is OpenSplit v1.0 to split 4+GB files via PC for Open Manager on the PS3 followed shortly by version 1.1 which includes some bug fixes and version 1.2, and deanrr shared a similar app called Split4G which he detailed HERE.

Download: OpenSplit v1.0 / OpenSplit v1.1 / OpenSplit v1.2

* What is this? *

This little tool lets you split the BIG files (bigger than 4GB) in your games on your PC, so that you can use them with Open Manager 1.0 for the ps3.

* How do I use it? *

- Press "Split BIG files to .666xx" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for BIG files and split them according to Open Manager 1.0. All game folders that contained BIG files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "BCESXXX" to "_BCESXXX")

- Press "Merge .666xx files to BIG" in order to select a folder with your games. OpenSplit then will search the folder and all its subfolders for .666xx files and merge them to BIG files. All game folders that contained .666xx files will be renamed accordingly. (example -> "_BCESXXX" to "BCESXXX")

- Check the checkbox "Don't delete splitted BIG / merged .666xx files" if you want to keep both BIG and .666xx files.

You can choose your whole GAMEZ directory, then all games will be processed.

I have attached the program to this post.

An important issue: PLEASE DON'T TRY TO MERGE .666xx FILES ON A FAT32 HDD! There files can't be bigger than 4 GB! You will only encounter errors!

Depending on which SPLIT option you used, you can join them to your internal HDD with comgenie filemanager (if you used .#.part option) or with OBM or my multiMAN manager (if you used the .666xx option).

If you want to keep all at the PC side you can simply use the command prompt with

copy /b file.a+file.b+file.c file

And you'll get 3 parts joined in one.

Here is the requested version of the split4G application. It now has additional drop-down-list option to select the split filename format:

filename.#.part (for Comgenie's join function)
filename.666## (for OBM join function).


I like your tool as it doesn't require Java or .Net. Can you also add the "Join" function? One time I accidentally split to file.#.part format and deleted the original files. Now OBM cannot combine them.

Good evening,

I'm really stuck and hope that someone might be able to help me, i've split COD4 with open manager on my windows 7 pc, then i copied the 7 folders. All with .66600 up to .66607, over to my Fat32 external hard drive. When i jail break my PS3 and open up open manager there are no files on my external hard drive so i am unable to copy them over to my PS3 can someone please tell me where i am going wrong.

Hmmm, alright..

Makes sense now I guess, would be great if we could just play from the external drive but still.. I guess that'll work.

this is so you dont have to ftp your games across from pc to PS3. some games like motorstorm2 only run from the internal hdd. uncharted to which has a pak22.psarc file needs to pe split up so you can put it with the split files on an external hdd and this game runs from the external drive and internal.

i dont know why some games only run from the intenal drive. but this tool helps those who dont want to ftp games across.

i am running psgoove 1.1 and OBM 1.13 and uncharted2 runs fine split up on my external hdd.

You can install the Open Manager and choose the directory of the old BM for it. Then you use the Open Manager to get a splitted game merged onto your internal HDD in the right folder. After that, you can start the game from your old BM.

Thank you PS3 News!

If the program does not delete files and does not rename directories, then it is very probable, that your games folder is on your windows partitition. Because of that a program needs administrator rights to be able to alter existing files and directories. You can try to run OpenSplit by rightclick->"run as administrator". Or optionally you could move your games directory to another logical partitition of your pc-HDD where no windows is installed.
