June 30, 2011 // 8:07 am - Hi, sorry for the delay in the updates I've been a bit busy this month however have found the time to add a small feature into the PSN Download Manager program which is now updated to version 3.93.

PlayStation Download Manager / Booster is an application designed to increase the download speeds of the PlayStation Network, it can install both free and paid content as long as you've paid for it.

In order to create a speed boost, it creates multiple segments which will draw data from the servers using multi-threading, this allows you to achieve the maximum speed of your line; unlike the PS3 which uses only 1 transfer.

Your PC can also be faster at downloading in general due to several factors, including it's connection method, processor speed, RAM and TCP Optimizations.

PSN Download Manager 3.93 Changes:

1) Added the Connection Optimizer
2) Reduced / Improved the code by around 20KB

You can check out the site, with the download from: http://adf.ly/1UUdZ

Setting Up Your Console:

1. Start Your Playstation Console
2. Under Network Settings, Choose Custom.
3. When it asks for Proxy, set it to Use.
4. Enter your IP Address given by running Internal IP.bat
5. Enter the port as 27
6. Save the changes, start PSN DM.exe

Using the Application:

1. Start a download from the PSN
2. When it says "Please Wait" Press Circle

You'll notice it is now displayed in the Download Manager, once finished, proceed with the following to Transfer onto the PlayStation...

3. Go back and Download the Content / File again, it should transfer from the PC...

Hope you, enjoy the updates; you might need to look at the ext.txt as it depends on which functions you want, as some files cause issues.

Common User's use the following:

  • .PUP
  • .MNV
  • .MP4
  • .PKG

You might find more file types related to applications, in the Log.txt and if you do then simply add it into the ext.txt to use the download manager to handle this file type, remember some file types will cause conflict with applications on the console.

Best Regards,

Pixolia Solutions LTD.

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)
