September 20, 2010 // 5:25 pm - Update: PS3 Timestamp Generator v1.1 is now available, which fixes a bug which valid numbers don't generate properly.

Over the weekend a guide was posted on how to Platinum any PS3 game instantly, and today I'm releasing my PS3 Timestamp Generator tool that allows you to generate timestamps for all of your hacked PlayStation 3 Trophies making you look more legit ever than before.

Download: PS3 Timestamp Generator v1

Note - I haven't tested this on a different platform yet. This was compiled with VS2010 (C#) and .NET Framework 3.5. So, please report me any bug you may have encountered.

Make sure you put correct numbers into the six text boxes, e.g.

2009 20 02 02 49 35

Don't put one digits, illegal numbers or non-numeric characters,
otherwise the program won't generate for you.

Once generated, copy the hex, open your TROPUSR.DAT with a hex editor and paste the hex underneath the line where it says a trophy ID. E.g:

0x21e0: 00 00 00 1C 00 00 00 01 00 01 10 00 00 00 00 00

(1c is a trophy ID)

So paste your hex into these XXs (the first timestamp). Re-save it, overwrite it over your game's old TROPUSR.DAT via the FTP manager. Boot the game and ta-da!

(Note- each trophy ID has two separated timestamps, so I recommend using a newer hex (increased date/time) for the second timestamp.)

Why bother? I mean trophies are supposed to mark your pride and the hard work you did to earn it. Why would you just hack them? I see no point in it, but oh well.

it's the concept of something being "rare" No one said Fight Night Round 4 was hard, it was just 1 guy made it impossible, so it comes down to... hes still the only person in the world to get it, and it get rated a 10/10 usually over that.

most people know the "rating" over the actual tasks that go into it. While games that are hard and unknown like spelunker black will go without hacking... However some people are insane!

I met one guy who offered me 50+ to plat spelunker for him. you look at thee guys account, its littered with games that conflict and all of that... but in the end, no one cares enough to look at times.

if you don't know it exists, this guy could plat mag, and all of that... Sorta like how Hakoom is highly respected though him and several of the 100+ plat people are 2+ people

The more homebrew the better. If you got your trophies the legit way then it's not affecting you at all. I couldn't care less if Joe Trophyhacker gives himself 187 platinum trophies. And in most cases you can see if someone didn't earn a trophy the legit way due to the timestamps and the order they were received unless the person pays attention and edits each one individually since a lot of times you can't earn one trophy without earning a certain one before it.

I personally would just play the game and get achievements that way but in the cases of trophies that are not possible to get anymore I don't have a problem with it. Calling someone a 'late adopter' is ridiculous. This is one reason why I don't like online trophies for the most part.

Pretty cool concept but I think it needs to be made easier to do. As in feed the app a file or make it generate a file or something along those lines.

I think the same as you. And I don't understand why some fools congratulate things like this. I understand that making this kind of "hacks" require time and knowledge and there goes my congratulations to the guy who made it, but to me this is worthless and completely ruined the trophy system forever.

I'd rather be a good gamer with a few gold and platinum trophies than be lying to people (including myself) and appearing to have earned a bunch of platinum trophies.

I like to compare trophies to my friends and see how much progress they have made in games and maybe even see how much time they have spent on certain games collecting these trophies. Personally, I like seeing it pop up in the game that I have unlocked a trophy by playing... but that's my opinion.

I agree. Cool that you can do it, but how little life you need to have to actually do it (hack your trophys) and brag about it later.

Cool that you can program for the PS3. But don't do it for this. THIS IS LAME. Not cool... This will destroy PSN... Thank you very much... NOT.

Since there is an option to use another firmware with the new tool you can also use a higher firmware. So syncing is not the problem.

What about this plan : I buy a new PS3, hack a lot of Pt's and sync it. So you need a new PS3 to do it, or some one find out how to downgrade the Firm Ware to use FTP .
