OpenSplit v1.0 to Split 4+GB Files for Open Manager PS3 Arrives


Sponsored Links
231w ago - 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!

If split files are there and the big file is still there delete it manually before transferring to the fat32 drive.

Similar to FleetwoodSho... I've extracted Ridge Racer 7 to the pc, which had a 5gb or so file.

"Don't delete BIG file" was NOT selected... however, once it was completed... the split files were there, but so was the original 5gb file??

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.

I used this on my Quantum Theory game, and when I tried to copy the folder to an HDD, it said there was still a file too large to copy over...

I didn't have the "Don't Delete BIG file" option selected either...

Depending on how your ps3 is connected to your PC a file transfer via the ftp server can be very slow. In these cases it is much faster to split the 4gb+ files, move the game with split-files to an external HDD, and finaly copy it from there to internal HDD using Open Manager. Open Manager merges the split-files back into 4gb+ files while copying them from external to internal. This is the plan.

so it splits files larger than 4 gb but do not work on fat32. i am just curious how you guys play your ps3 games 4gb files over, is there a simpler way?

At the moment, for me to play ps3 games if it is larger than 4 gb:

1. Run ftp server 1.0 on ps3
2. run filezilla on pc
3. copy files across to internal hdd

Indeed it does - they were both created for the same purpose

But what about the cryptography and reverse engineering ? Aren't there books online about that ? I would do it but I don't wanna get sued. Plus I don't know how to program/re any way's I'm about to study CS at my local college.

Oh, didn't know that Comgenie's splitter is compatible (filesize and extension). I tried his file manager on my ps3 and it has copied stuff much slower than Open Manager. Perhaps that is why I didn't use his other creations...

Old news, as for me. Comgenie Awesome Filesplitter was out from September 25-26 I think. And it does the same thing (even with this .666xx extensions). Weird...
