May 28, 2010 // 7:55 pm - Update #2: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v2.07 is available HERE with the changelog, followed shortly by PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v2.18 which includes more fixes.

Update: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.92 is now available HERE to download, which contains some fixes as detailed, followed shortly by v1.97 HERE with more changes and a demonstration video below!

I didn't program most of PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.7 and only take credit for merging 3r1c's Proxy Server and MyDownloader to create an application which automatically intercepts the downloads without the hassle of copying the URL from the log into a download manager and then setting up a file redirect.

Download: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.7

NOTE: My line only downloads at upto 175 Kilobytes, and usually without using this application, the PS3 only reaches around 30 - 40 Kilobytes.

- Built in Proxy Server
- Automatic Interception of PSN Downloads
- Segmented File Download's
- Pause and Resume File Transfers
- Download files while playing PS3 Games

Mr. Labigalini - MyDownloader (SOURCE)
3r1c - Proxy Server (SOURCE)
Develio13 - Mashing the Source

Hope you enjoy, and watch your PSN Downloads fly...

Q: What was the purpose in Mashing the source code?

I wanted an application that could automatically download files from the PSN without copying and pasting the url from the log into a download manager, and finally selecting a file to replace a given url.

Q: How do i use this application?

1. Make sure .NET framework 3.5 or greater is installed.
2. Start Internal IP.bat
3. Write down your IP Address
4. Start your Playstation Console
5. Goto Network Settings and select Internet Connection Settings
6. Proceed with Custom Settings until Proxy Server
7. Choose Use and enter your IP Address, and port = 27
8. Save your changes by completing the wizard
9. Start the PSN DM.exe (NOT Proxy.exe)

Issues and Solutions:

Q: PS3 Downloads not showing in the GUI?

1. Close the application
2. Check for proxy.exe in processes with Windows Task Manager (End Process - If Any)
3. Make sure the path.txt file is in the executable path
4. Check destination folder in the path.txt exists
5. Confirm your proxy settings on the console

Q: When downloading from PSN it says "Please Wait" until error occurs?

1. Once it says "Please Wait" just press Circle and wait until download manager has finished.
2. Download the file from the PSN Again this will take the file from the PC Cache folder instead.

PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.7 is Now Available

Q: is its function limited to speeding up the downloads from PSN?
A: The function should not be limited, and downloads will reach the same speed your PC receives, some people may notice reduced lag in games like Modern Warfare 2.

Q: if it's possible to swap in pkg files from my PC, how is it done?(the procedure)
A: The application will automatically, take the PKG from the downloads folder when your console requests the file for a second time (Download on the manager must have completed first, for it to do anything), this however doesn't allow you to swap the pkg file with a fake alternative, as an error will occur on the console...

Q: does it support "Life with Playstation"? I'm still on 3.15 and i can't go online (I use linux with my ps3 and I didn't want to update)
A: You may notice a slight improvement in Life with Playstation, and even if your running firmware 3.15 it will still work, however you'll need a way to bypass the firmware update; so you can access the Playstation Store.

3.17 update fixed the crash on download completion error!

That's great news , thank you for letting me know...

Like WasteWare says download PSN DM 3.17 and make sure to include the correct information in the Country.txt which should be &country=eu for spain.

Will test shortly, this is really an awesome project!! Thank you again!

Another strange bug, if I right click into the blank downloads gui and select New Download, I get the General and Alternate tab menu but only halfway, it appears to be some window sizing glitch? Might be just be....

Wasteware, thank you for the screenshots

Could you download version 3.07 and update the Char_Illegal.txt with the following:

[Register or Login to view code]

In the Char_Illegal.txt put these at the top, make sure your using 3.07 for it to recognize this filter...

this might resolve this issue, let me know if it does or not.

Good Luck, xD...

Hopefully this will resolve any issues with downloads, as I've removed all possibility of an Illegal Character...

Also, a Playstation Store Replica will be going online over the next few weeks, and will integrate with this application...

Version 3.17:

Should resolve issues from previous releases, and if not make sure that Char_Illegal.txt is updated with &country=[ID] at the top and ?product=00[ID] then followed by single characters...

Sorry, if any inconvenience is caused by these issues :s

Please let me know, if this works...

Can i download demos to my pc then transfer them to the ps3? this way i won't have to re-download when i format my ps3.

kavechick, you'll be able to format you PS3, without re-downloading the files; but make sure to keep the cache content on the PC, and PKG transfer works as far as i know...

Make sure to use 3.17, so that any bugs from previous builds can be avoided.

On Windows 7 I get a crash after any file downloads [it does so successfully though] [see attatchments]

I've followed all troubleshooting steps thus far.

Using version 3.

Are you in the UK?

This is so i can test using the same store as you...

Thank you...

Does your Country.txt look like this?


and miguelfcp, could you tell me which demo your downloading
so i can try downloading on mine, to see if it's a programming error
so it'll throw the exception in the debugger...

Thank you, for supplying these answers...

I've made a few changes which will remove all Illegal Characters from the filename string before it parses the information to the saved file on the PC...

Version 3.07:

I recommend a fresh installation, in a new folder...

1. Create a new folder
2. Extract contents into it from the .Zip

If you live in the UK, then just run PSN DM.exe and downloads should work...
else for USA users change the Country.txt to &country=us then run PSN DM.exe

I hope this will resolve your issue's, otherwise this is more complex and occurs during the proxy handler...

If you could still answer the questions above, if it still doesn't work...
Thank you
