October 2, 2010 // 6:38 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!

Guys, I can't launch splitted files in internal drive? What I did. I copied a splitted game with a _blesxxxx into my external fat32 usb drive inside the root folder. I didnt put it in the GAMEZ folder. Then i plug my external into the ps3 and copied the game using comgenie awesome file manager into the openmanager 1.3 Gamez folder Oman46767 or something.

When I try to launch the game using Open manager 1.3, I can see its being greyed out, it says splitted files cant be launched. My question can i merge splitted files? or does the open manger do it automatically during transfer?

I very much hope both are compatible. Once the splitting system was astablished by comgenie in his file manager, everyone else did it the same way to retain compatibility.

Ok, it seems the crash happens outside Java. So it's probably an issue of your hardware - something Java can't deal with, perhaps. You could report that crash to the link in your message, to help sun make Java better.

Thanks for this great tool Fejwin! There's one thing I would like to know, though. Which version of the Open Manager is compatible with this splitting and joining method? Is it the Open Manager 1.0 - 1.14 or Jurai2's Open Manager or both?

just 1 more game tried since - which was ok - one last game to try which I think has a 4gb+ file that I have - so will see what happens. Even so... it's the only time its ever done that once, and done about 10 games so far (both 1.0 and 1.1 combined)... so maybe just one of them weird things. The same game, ran fine the 2nd time round.

Will let know if it does happen again on next lot of games that need it once have ripped them off the disc.

Edit: hmm spoke too soon... did it again. The only common difference between these 2 and the other 2 games is this.

The app folder is: E:\Backup\ps3\Apps\OpenSplit v1.1

Previously, the games I'd set it to split were in E:\Backup\ps3\games\

The last 2 games, Final Fantasy, and now Resistance - I'd extracted to D:\ - same physical hdd - different partition.

Both of these resulted in after browsing to d:\ folder and pressing the Open/OK button.

2nd time round its started the splitting again no problem (running right now)

Maybe its something to do with when you use the dropdown to select drive perhaps?

Just noticed I have the error log files, the top of it reads:
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
# EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x758d7a1f, pid=1932, tid=3504

Have you tried it again?

not sure if its a recurring thing - but I extracted MGS4, then chose to split the file, and after pressing ok to select the folder, the app just closed itself within a split second.

looks like it didn't make any changes to the file.

Ok, so the prog is changing dirs and missing some games when doing many at once. To correct that, it is necessary for me to reproduce your situation on my pc. It would be really great, if you could search all the games you were processing when these bugs accured for BIG files and give me their psths and sizes! Then I could reproduce these folders and files (it doesn't make a difference for the program whats written in a big file, as long as it has the same size) and look closer into the issue.

TO: Midnight Tboy
True! That can easyly be corrected. Stay tuned

One very very minor issue.. After running the app on a single game folder, and it having completed and renamed the folder to _game. If I then press to split another game, the file/folder browser that comes up is going back to the default folder window (libraries in Windows 7 I think it was - presumably My Docs on XP).

Obviously the file browser will have no doubt attempted to look for the previous folder, eg e:\ps3games\Uncharted2, but with that having been renamed to _Uncharted2 it must revert back to windows settings for what folder to be in.

Any chance perhaps to have it either auto set the folder to the renamed _ folder... or perhaps, to go to the next nesting up when a folder is not found (so it would fail to see e:\ps3games\Uncharted2 so it would go to e:\ps3games that can manually select the next one with ease
