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!

Another issue: IF YOU START A SPLIT/MERGE PROCESS, ALWAYS WAIT UNTIL THE MESSAGE "All jobs done!" APPEARS IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY PROBLEMS!

Enjoy!

Fejwin, thanks for the reply, luckily i had a backup and double check and it had indeed moved the files??, very odd, this was on a batch convert of about 10 games, i also noticed some had been missed too, so very odd indeed.

I re-ran all the missed games through and also a backup of the one i mentioend, and all is ok now, but again i did this one by one, not sure if its a batch issue or what, if it happens again ill let you know.

PS This is what happened... Operation Flashpoint - Dragon Rising\PS3_GAME\USRDIR\PS3Cache\ps3_000.nfs

Created 6 split files but they were placed in the USRDIR, this i know was worn as i was using version 1.0 that did not delete the BIG file, but i used a backup anyway to be sure.

Anybody have a copy of this to make sure im correct and something odd isnt going on?

just had it running through Star Ocean while I read this. I'm sure I saw the file was in a folder other than USRDIR before I started it...but can't be 100%.

Each game so far that I've done though I've checked on the external drive (not had to chance to try them in ps3 yet though) has the file in the same folder.

I'm going to do Uncharted 2 next... as it has the large files in the \USRDIR\build\main folder so will see what happens this time round seeing as I know where it should have been beforehand

Uncharted 2 retained in same subfolder... so not sure what other guys problem with it is - definately worth him trying to rerip to see if it reoccurs

will of course keep an eye open for next bunch of games I try.

So why is it moving the files out of the DIR, and will it be rebuilt correctly, i have notcied a few like this, any ideas anybody?

Are you really sure they were in USRDIR? The program takes the path of a BIG file and just adds the extension to it when saving small files. For example, it knows the BIG file is in ...path/bla/BIG.fl - then it adds .66600 or .66601 and so on to it whithout considering the directory. so out comes: ...path/bla/BIG.fl.66600 and ...path/bla/BIG.fl.66601 and so on. Because it already knows where the BIG file is, right?

If you are quite sure the splitted files were in a different folder... Can't imagine what the cause for this bug could possibly be.

Folders are still renaming with the _ in it and the files are now deleting like they should

Ok guys can you help me out on this onem seems there is an issue with some games, for instance...

Operation Flashpoint - Dragon Rising, There is a file in the _Operation Flashpoint - Dragon Rising\PS3_GAME\USRDIR\PS3Cache\ps3_000.nfs of 4.2gb

When i run this through the programe, the split files are then placed into the root of USRDIR?, So why is it moving the files out of the DIR, and will it be rebuilt correctly, i have notcied a few like this, any ideas anybody?

Ok it works fine if you select 1 game at a time, if you batch process it sometimes moves files so be carefull, something to look into!

Ps i'm also having to manually put the _ infron of the dirs, does it not do it itself?
