May 25, 2011 // 11:48 am - Just another few updates to PSN Download Manager, prior to recovery of the PlayStation Store. Today, I've released version 3.80 containing some of the following changes:

  • Added a premium membership option, which offers access to a huge feature called Turbo Servers and also removes the advertisement shown on startup.
  • Several minor changes to the code in attempt to patch errors for some users

Here is a quick guide to hosting your own Turbo Server:

Create a FTP or HTTP server using a relevant program like apache or filezilla,

1) Create a folder called DATA this will hold your shared files
2) Make sure to copy the exact file structure of your Downloads folder
3) For each file you want the clients to see, create a text document with the exact same filename, and add to the extension .ready (Include the word ready as text inside the file as well) | Example: 2782hsh7ggogpoyl.pkg would have a ready file of 2782hsh7ggogpoyl.pkg.ready

And then share your link to the rest of the world, who can now access them files from your server.

As for the clients to enjoy this feature, they just need to login as a premium member and add the server ip into there Servers.txt on a new line. (A small fee of £1.00 a month, to cover the cost of our main server and development time | Account sharing will not be tolerated and will result in blacklisting.)

Other changes, include a few memory leaks patched, several points of potential hanging (freezing for a short period of time) have been patched and reduced chance of corrupt file upon exit.

This file is downloadable via our site, through the links already provided including any old urls like http://playstationdm.zapto.org/ which will automatically forward you.

My colleague and I will be around to maintain this on a weekly basis until updates are no longer required, but I'm not sure if any software really reaches perfection tbh

Premium Membership accounts can be purchased via the my account tab, this will appear sometime within the next 24 hours on the website once our payment system is updated and accounts will be activated within 24 hours of payment. (Valid until subscription is cancelled)

We hope many people will share some of their upstream, and make the Playstation Network a better place to be; something where it can compete against the download speeds of rival consoles and make it the choice for gaming once again.

Have a good day,

Pixolia Solutions,
Jordan Dyckes.

Another update, due to some major bug's in the design which would caused a Major performance issue, in terms of loading speed when caching items.

This was fixed with constant flow url's which fixes the bug of it only loading one item everytime you load an menu like "Whats New".

[3.57 - 3.60]

>> Added constant url flow, to fix several bugs and enhance performance.
>> Url detectection rate is now 100ms from 750ms for faster loading on high performance networks.
>> New option on bottom menu bar, right to display options (added Restart Server)
>> Support for temporary files, like an image for Content being cached.
>> Patched bug where client would freeze for a long period of time when checking for updates
>> Solved first time login issue, but disabling .TXT in ext.txt
>> Disabled .XML in ext.txt as it caused me to loose my iPlayer Icon, and cannot get it back.
>> More reliable url parsing to the download manager, to prevent files skipping the manager.

My experience since improvements of 3.57:

Vidzone now gains a massive performance boost, since it's data is now run through the booster.

Modern Warfare 2 showed signs of improvement in area's such as latency, my PS3 never finds a lobby of a ping < 90ms, and since using the PS DM 3.57 / .60 the lobbys are much better and have a latency reduction of around 10ms - 15ms.

Friends List seems to load slightly faster, and the Online XMB Content seems a lot smoother (In 3.60 / 3.57 had a bug - lack of constant url flow)

It caches most media in used in Playstation Home, and can save up to several Megabytes of data during the connection to the Playstation Network.

All users of the 3.57 and the version before that, will get a notification for a new update.

Download V3.60: at http://playstationdm.zapto.org/ and make sure to overwrite all files, you will not loose any downloads, or progress on current downloads. (Unless you break something)
