114w ago - Following up on his previous revision, today PlayStation 3 developer wborland0 has updated PS3 Game List Manager to version v2.1 for Windows x64 users with the changes detailed below.

To quote from his blog: Yet another application update, bringing PS3 Game List to v2.1. Due to the major framework revision implemented in v2.0, some of the new features needed more polishing to better suit the app engine.

This version improves PS3GL responsiveness while loading data from multiple media sources (game folders, PKGs, ISOs and RAR compressed files) simultaneously. Basically, it means less time waiting and more time doing stuff that matters.

Another long time requested feature is the ability to manually add a game to the loaded list and search for its updates, even if the game is not in the user’s library. Fret no more, simply add the game to your list and PS3GL will search for its updates (to be fair, it was already possible to do that by importing a standalone game list from Excel).

Speaking of which, PS3GL now exports and imports a game list saved in CSV file format as well. It is useful to future application ports (since the Linux and Mac releases never had that feature), and to those Windows users that did not have Excel installed (the option to export to Worksheet format was maintained, and Office 2013 is now supported).

As you have noticed, PS3GL dropped support for Windows Xp due to framework limitations (the new compiler no longer supports Xp binaries), working just fine under Vista, Seven and Eight. Still looking into a Xp alternative for those interested, check back for updates.

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:

v2.1

  • Improved application responsiveness (while loading multiple game formats simultaneously);
  • Users can now download updates for games they do not own (by clicking on the corresponding icon and inputting the game ID, e.g. BCUS98114);
  • Support for CSV file format (users can export their game list to a CSV file and later import it as well; improved app portability and useful to those who do not use Excel);
  • Fixed Excel importing/exporting (for those who prefer using the worksheet format; requires Microsoft Excel installed);
  • Fixed application crash while loading malformed SFOs.


PS3 Game List v2.1 Manager for Windows Update is Released

This one crashes more than the last version. Its also a lot slower.

I've stayed back to an even older more stable version.

Following up on his previous version, today PlayStation 3 developer wborland0 has updated PS3 Game List Manager to version v3.0 for Windows x64 with the changes below.

To quote from his blog: PS3 Game List v3.0

In time for the holidays, another revision bringing PS3 Game List to v3.0. The idea behind this release was to update once again the framework supporting the application, while including new stuff as well.

This version implements an interesting feature (which is yet another major addition to the application, and a project on its own): the ability to decode Sony’s proprietary ATRAC3Plus audio files. PAM video files (the animations displayed when the game is selected on XMB) can now be played with the corresponding audio stream.

Moreover, the tooltip info now includes available languages and game version, so it is easier to identify which game to play. Also, for those still using the late OS, Windows Xp support is back.

As for the Mac and Linux versions, it seems my virtual machines are to blame for the corrupted files, and it is still unresolved. Virtualization has its advantages, but it doesn’t always go smooth. It would be a good time to have a Mac setup donated. Anyone?

This is probably the last release using the current codebase. Next step will be tossing it, and rewriting the engine from scratch so it can accommodate the changes needed to support the PS4 games, among other things. Not sure what will happen, though.

Check the changelog below for all the 3.0 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:

v3.0

  • ATRAC3Plus audio decoding (PAM video files will now be played with the corresponding audio stream; configuration via settings dialog);
  • Windows Xp support is back;
  • Game version and available languages are now included in the tooltip info (triggered by hovering the mouse over a populated list);
  • Trophies can now be sorted by their value;
  • Built with the latest major release of Qt, OpenSSL and compiler for improvements in speed, security and size;
  • Fixed sorting updates by their count.

Same here, all the links I have downloaded are 20.8 MB (21,878,400 bytes) but they return the same result. Odds are the author will need to upload a new one at this point.

Following up on his previous revision, today PlayStation 3 developer wborland0 has updated PS3 Game List Manager to version v2.3 for Windows x64 alongside Linux and MAC users with the changes below.

Download: PS3 Game List v2.3 Manager for Windows / PS3 Game List v2.3 Manager for Linux / PS3 Game List v2.3 Manager for MAC

To quote from his blog: Another application update, bringing PS3 Game List to v2.3. The main highlight is the support for PSARC archive extraction. The feature was lingering over the request list for a long time, and it is finally implemented. Users can retire other extracting apps from their library, as PS3GL extracts data even faster than Sony’s official implementation!

Also, there is a new trophy tab, for those interested in learning all about the selected game’s challenges (trophy ID, type, name, detail, hidden status and avatar). Trophy information will be loaded according to the language selected by the user, and can be extracted as well.

Additionally, Linux and MacOS ports for v2.3 are provided, just like old times, although I cannot really guarantee future support. A whole lot of work and much underappreciation from the users, even for the Windows version.

Anyways, 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:

v2.3

  • Support for PSARC (compressed files used to store game resources like textures, audio and video data) archive extraction;
  • New tab to display trophy info (trophy type, name, detail and hidden status will be loaded according to the selected language; line selection will trigger a smooth blend animation between trophy avatars);
  • Option to extract trophy data as well;
  • Slight improvement in load speed;
  • PSN games can now be imported from CSV/Excel;
  • Fixed issue while trying to clear the loaded list;
  • Fixed v2.2 translation issue.
