May 30, 2011 // 11:51 am - Hey, I'm back with a nice big update to PSN Download Manager 3.82!

In this release I looked back at feedback, such as Web browsing crashing the proxy etc and many more bugs detected / reported by GrandpaHomer who made sure I fixed everything, but without his feedback and contribution I wouldn't of had much of an update to release other than the P2P function with tracker support.

I'm going to film a nice new video for 3.82 as the current version displayed on YouTube is old and outdated by a mile, so when the PS Store is back online I'll film it and update this thread with it.

Today it finally dawned upon on me, that a huge amount of users come from countries which speak; Spanish, German, Dutch, French, Japanese etc and I though wouldn't it be nice, if the main interface was displayed in there natural language? so I implemented support for 10 languages including English, this applies to some messages and the main interface; the login / logout explains it's self and the options are pretty easy to guess, or so I assume

A big feature, available to our premium members is the new, P2P cloud structure aimed for those who find Sony's servers alone just can't reach speeds of over 10Mbps; this will use apache to transfer data between users, linked by a tracker which you can access for only £1.00 a month this covers the cost of our server hosting etc, time to maintain our software and create your accounts

Here is the list of changes, which have been made

Changes from 3.80 -> 3.82

1) Support added for web browsing, some image glitchs (Fixed by disabling .PNG cache)
2) TV on demand is now working (Excluding BBC iPlayer - Unknown reason, BBC's fault. )
3) Support for premium member login / logout
4) Displays active seeder count
5) New P2P cloud structure for premium members
6) Features UPnP automatic port forwarding
7) Proxy no longer crashes when launch web / folding at home ([email protected] won't load work loads still)
8) Several stability changes
9) Intelligent Tracker system, with automatic IP control
10) Integrated Apache server for http file sharing
11) New toolbar at the top, for easy to find controls.
12) Youtube can now be watched via the browser
13) (New Models) Sony Bravia TV's can connect via the proxy for most services
14) Playstation Portable support has been confirmed (Tried on my PSP)
15) Designed to work with the NGP from Sony (PSN should work the same, in theory.)
16) Added support for 10 languages (Including English)

You can download it now, via our Web site at http://adf.ly/1UUdZ - This link helps, support my work by funding, bricked consoles, web hosting and development time

P.S Only bricked one console, by powering off during update by mistake but it happens from time to time...

I hope you enjoy our product, and in return we'll keep on working away to ensure it's never broken and will always work on the PSN no matter how many firmware releases there are (with the exception Sony block our methods, or remove proxy support; which would be their loss not mine.)

Best Regards,

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)
