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!

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?

hiya - yes it does rename the folder with an _ in front.

For what its worth. I'm running Win 7 64-bit.

Also my path when on the pc hdd is "E:\Backup\ps3\games\Darksiders - PAL\" (renamed to "E:\Backup\ps3\games\_Darksiders - PAL\" once complete

One question to those, who encounter this "prog doesn't delete files" problem:

Does it rename the game folder correctly? Or fails it to rename, too?

I'll look into that!
Stay tuned!

The only thing though, is before I started it - I ticked, and then unticked the box, before I chose the split option. So maybe its not deselecting properly?

Currently trying now Darksiders - reloading the app but not touching the tick box at all this time.

Yes, I should have mentioned that my split files were also there, just that the big file was definitely not deleted...

It really isn't a problem at all for me, it's nothing for me to go and delete it manually, just wanted to give a heads up so that the issue could possibly be worked on, if the program was indeed intended to delete the BIG one by default...

Aside from that, it worked like a charm... love it...
