May 28, 2010 // 9:55 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.

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

3r1c - Proxy Server (SOURCE)

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

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

A:
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?

A:
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?

A:
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?

A:
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.

Umm it's hard to work out whats wrong when i don't get the error, lol...

Right i'm going to ask some questions to help me look into resolving this...

Which Operating System are you using?

Have you tried a clean installation of the application?

What is the title of the content your trying download?
for example, Modern Warfare Map Pack 1.

Could you post a screenshot of the error?

that should be enough information for me to start looking into the problem for now...

Sorry it didn't work first time, :s

Hi,
I've just tested version 2.18 and PKG files seem to be installing without any issues on firmware 3.30, you could be running an old version...

First of all check the Country.txt, it should look like:
&country=[CODE]

Replace the [CODE] with the relevant country:
us = USA
gb = Great Britain
fr = France
jp = Japan

You should end up with something like this,
&country=gb

Now the path.txt file should look like this:
Downloads\

Make sure the folder called 'Downloads' is in the same directory

In version 3.00 or above, check that Ext.txt looks like this:
.PUP
.MNV
.JPG
.PNG
.MP4
.PKG
.MP3

Now you've checked the files which control the application,

[EMPTY Your Download Folder]

Try running the application as administrator

Q: Please can you tell me what version of the software are you using and how do you do to transfer pkg file to PS3?
A: I'm using PSN DM 2.18, and once the PKG is downloaded via the manager; on the PS3 download the file again and it would transfer the PKG automatically.

Q: Hello, why can not I transfer the pkg file: The first time I download the file easily but the second time when I want to transfer it the log only downloads again.
A: Update to the latest version (3.00)

Q: download files from PSN to your Laptop/PC directly?
A: Thank you, I will look into this for future builds of the applications.

V: 3.00

If your running PSN DM 3.00 and have done everything above and tried restarting your computer then please send me an e-mail via my profile.
