September 20, 2010 // 3:25 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.)

there's a gamesave hack for that I believe... and Yes they might be good for ones that "cant be obtained legit" like the belts in Fight Night Round 4 since 1 guy held all the belts and kept them though cycling them though friends...

but overall its more or less gonna be a step by steep thing till its "acceptable"

person A: its ok to hack Fight Night, you cant do it legit
person B: its ok to hack lord of the rings, the online is offline
person C: its ok to hack lost planet 2, even though there are 53 leaderboards, getting #1 is bullshit!
person D: its ok to hack ninja gaiden sigma 2, my connection isnt strong enough to play the game online!
person E: its ok to hack singularity, no one plays!
person F: its ok to hack final fantasy XIII, i could earn all the weapons so why do I need to actually do something anyone could do playing a lot?
person Q: its ok to hack up, its easy!
person Z: its ok to hack my list, everyone else does it.

it might not happen exactly like this... but it will go similar to this.

Not the kind of homebrew we need guys. Lets focus on some useful homebrew and not on useless.

A great hack, I presume, and good job for the coder who came up with this. But I don't really see why any serious person would even want to do this. Its cool and all, but wouldn't you rather feel the amazing sense of accomplishment rather than feel the emptiness of a lie when bragging to your friends?

The best game r(and a great friend) I know has the least amount of Platinum trophies (just 1) in my friends list but dominates every game leaderboards especially racing games. According to some he is insane in COD games as well. There is a reason why I don't like platinums and now it is diluted even more. Last year has especially seen a lot of platinum chasers for some reason. Now I can laugh at them for copping out of games

I tend to agree with you on this one. Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that homebrew is possible, but stuff like this is kind of silly. Anytime I see someone now with all platinum trophies, I'll have to wonder if it is real or not. Cheating in games and then bragging about is kind of lame... and pathetic. It's cool that someone figured this out, but I don't understand why anyone would want to use this.

What is the point in hacked trophies if it is for bragging rights if you are not online how can your psn friends see it? Anyway the more homebrew the better all is appreciated.
