December 21, 2012 // 5:49 am - Following up on his previous revisions, today PlayStation 3 developer wborland0 has updated PS3 Game List Manager to version v2.0 for Windows x64 users with the changes below.

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.

This weekend wborland0 has updated his PlayStation 3 Game Manager / Updater dubbed PS3 Game List to version 1.7 with the following changes, to quote:

Download: PS3 Game List v1.7

Another update, bringing PS3 Game List to v1.7; the engine underwent improvements to better accommodate the requested features. Download resuming, full Unicode support and info on external loading are some of the new functionality.

As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well. Due to the new column layout, the Excel worksheets must be created again before being imported.

PS3 Game List change-log and features v1.7:

  • Allows multiple simultaneous downloads (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Supports download pausing/resuming;
  • Displays download speed;
  • Allows users to indicate whether a game loads from the external hard disk or not (double click on the correspondent cell to select the desired value, the info will be stored at ‘external.txt’ when the save action is performed; the file can be manually edited, the format is [GAME_ID] CODE, where CODE can be 0 (Not Tested), 1 (Not Working) or 2 (Working); e.g. BCUS98114 0);
  • Full Unicode support (UTF-8) (configuration via settings dialog; by enabling Unicode, the application will render non-Latin characters used in western languages, special symbols, etc.; text will be rendered using ISO-8859-1(Latin-1)/Windows-1252 otherwise);
  • Displays check items (flags) as icons (configuration via settings dialog);
  • Indicates whether a game update has been downloaded (partially or in full);
  • Overwrite confirmation is no longer asked (the package SHA1sum is checked instead; if the hash test fails, the update will be added to the download queue);
  • Additional language support: Japanese;
  • Fixed _TITLE_/_ID_ order issue (custom rename);
  • Fixed image loading issue after folder renaming;
  • Fixed drive usage info;
  • Updated German text (thanks to Whynot for the correct translation).

Here is a PS3 Game List Mac version for those interested: ps3gamelist.wordpress.com/2011/05/15/ps3-game-list-%E2%80%93-mac/

Download: PS3 Game List for Mac

To quote: For the Mac fans, the initial OSX port of PS3 Game List is here. As the Linux port, it is based upon v1.6, and it implements most of the Windows version features (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).

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

ah thanks for the clarification wborland. the 'bootable' column is kinda confusing to me at first. this app is awesome. i like this one compared to the others game manager.

I love this program and always use it. But I think what MajorD+cc says is true.

Boot-able will detect if a game is boot-able as it is, (e.g no split files) not whether it has 4g.b+ files, (fat32 compatible).

Not exactly a game breaker for me I'll still use it but their recommendation would be a good be a good addition.
