Download: PS3 Game List v2.0 Manager for Windows / PS3 Game List v2.0 Manager for Windows (Mirror)

To quote from his blog: In time for the holidays, another revision bringing PS3 Game List to v2.0. The idea behind this release was to update the framework supporting the application, while implementing all the possible features (most suggested by users) fitting the time frame.

This version implements a very useful feature: support for RAR files (including multivolume and password protected archives). That means users can retire WinRar for their decompressing needs, as PS3 Game List is now able to load game info from RARs and extract data as well (up to 5% faster than WinRar, no less).

This functionality allows users to manage their compressed games, in addition to their standard game folders, games stored as ISO files and PKGs (PSN games and Homebrew), pushing the ‘all-in-one suite’ concept even further.

Another interesting feature (which was a major addition to the application, and a project on its own) is the ability to play PAM video files (the animations played when the game is selected on XMB), if available, instead of displaying static game avatars. It can be quite addictive to go through all the videos on your game library.

Check the changelog below for all the 2.0 features.

As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well.

PS3 Game List change-log and features:

v2.0

  • Support for compressed RAR files (including multivolume and password protected archives, data stored as a RAR file will not be editable; an icon will overlay both avatar and background image in order to differentiate the entry from standard game folders, and the tooltip will display additional info about the file; note that RAR files, like ISO images and PKG files, do not follow the ‘folder depth’ configuration, just have them stored at the root of a directory and they will be loaded as a regular game folder);
  • Option to play videos (PAM files) instead of displaying static avatar images (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Users can now customize table columns layout (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Game titles are loaded according to the selected language (e.g. Uncharted 2 will read “Uncharted 2: Among Thieves” in English , “Uncharted 2: Il covo dei ladri” in Italian, “Uncharted 2: El reino de los ladrones” in Spanish, and so on);
  • Additional tags _SIZE_ and _REGION_ for custom rename (e.g. “_TITLE_ – (_ID_)[_FIRMWARE_][_REGION_][_SIZE_]” => “Gran Turismo 5 – (BCUS98114)[3.50][USA][17 GB]“, “(_REGION_)[_SIZE_][_FIRMWARE_][_ID_][_TITLE_]” => “(USA)[17 GB][3.50][BCUS98114][Gran Turismo 5]”, etc.);
  • Further PARAM.SFO editing (SFO category and Remote play options);
  • Game titles starting with “The” will have the article shifted to the end after renaming for improved sorting (e.g. “The Need for Speed” will be renamed to “Need for Speed, the”;
  • New chart for disk status (one that actually looks good);
  • Line selection will now trigger a smooth blend animation between game avatars;
  • PS3 Game List will now display an animated application logo;
  • Built with the latest major release of Qt (version 5), OpenSSL lib and compiler for improvements in speed, security and size;
  • Windows 8 support;
  • Featured installer/uninstaller;
  • Fixed renaming game titles with line feed characters;
  • Fixed renaming game titles with Unicode characters;
  • Fixed settings dialog minor translation issue.

Odd, with the new version I can't even get it to detect my games on my external.

Going to try previous versions.

Hi, Windows 7. There are no error messages, just the "processing" mouse pointer when I scroll over the window. The HDD led is also flashing. But even half an hour later it still does this. It finds out ok which updates are needed, but hangs when trying to dl them.

So I just used this, and it seems alright at first. It would be more useful to be able to highlight more than one folder in FTP and get all the game data at once. Also, when switching back to the FTP tab I keep having to navigate back to where I was. One ftp folder select at a time+constant renavigation=tedious for now. I think this is more for managing backups on your PC, or from an external drive? Seems smart, feature-wise for a basic manager.

Hey, I'd just like to make a quick suggestion. It seems that Select All only selects the updates you have decided to check and download. Could you change that so I could select all of my titles and check them all for updates rather than each one manually?

If you can already do this I apologize, I can't seem to make it work.

PlayStation 3 homebrew developer wborland0 has updated the popular PlayStation 3 game manager / updater application called PS3 Game List to version 1.9.1 for Windows, Linux and Mac this weekend.

Download: PS3 Game List v1.9.1 Manager for Windows / PS3 Game List v1.9.1 Manager for Linux / PS3 Game List v1.9.1 Manager for Mac

To quote: Another small revision with late additions, bringing PS3 Game List to v1.9.1.

The Linux port of PS3 Game List, based upon v1.9.1, is available for download. It implements most of the Windows version features (minus the platform specific functionality). The OpenSSL package is required (download the correspondent version for your release), and so is the Qt lib (the download link includes base files).

The OSX port of PS3 Game List, based upon v1.9.1, is here, featuring the same app updates (minus the platform specific functionality). Mac OS X 10.5 or up is required, so is OpenSSL (OSX ships with a slightly outdated version, but it should work; feel free to update to the latest release, though) and the Qt lib (the download link includes base files).

The Snow Leopard issues seem to be fixed; haven’t tested on Lion, though. Further releases will sort out any eventual misbehavior.

As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well.

PS3 Game List change-log and features:

v1.9.1

  • Hovering the mouse over a populated list displays tooltip containing the selected game info and background miniature (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Additional tag _FIRMWARE_ for custom rename (e.g. “_TITLE_ – (_ID_)[_FIRMWARE_]” => “Gran Turismo 5 – (BCUS98114)[3.50]“, “[_FIRMWARE_][_ID_][_TITLE_]” => “[3.50][BCUS98114][Gran Turismo 5]“, etc.).
