207w ago - Just a small update, to announce the very first plugin / extension is out for the PlayStation Download Manager as requested by users, this is a small sample of the PS3 Automatic Game Updater / LVC - Latest Version Checker.

It currently will not automatically update your games, but will demonstrate the features that will be included in the Automatic Game Updater extension / plugin due for release in the next week.

Current Features:
1) Can locate the latest update for a PS3 Game
2) Ability to search via the BCES / BLES / BLUS Code
3) Initiate the download on the PS Download Manager 3.92

There will be an update to this extension / plugin, that will turn it into the Automatic Game Updater as this will be the very core behind it.

Here is the link to our Web site, http://adf.ly/1UUdZ

You'll find it under our products, PlayStation Download Manager or you can use the link on the front page, if you can't find it; also don't forget you can select your language as well

Under the download link for the PlayStation Download Manager, you'll see the plugin

This will only work, in the same directory as the playstation download manager (download manager must be running for it to start downloads)

Best Regards,

Pixolia Solutions LTD.

Also the next download manager will be called 3.93 and will feature some of these changes:

1) TCP Optimization (Choose Connection Speed)
2) The complete automatic updater

I expect completion within the next week, or two

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I'm going to film a nice new video for 3.82 as the current version displayed on YouTube is old and outdated by a mile, so when the PS Store is back online I'll film it and update this thread with it.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

Hello, fellow members

I'm looking for around 10 users to beta trial the new Playstation Download Manager which supports the following new features:

> [Turbo Servers] P2P via FTP & Tracker (Also uses PSN Bandwidth as well)
{Also in 3.80 without the automatic FTP, Tracker etc so basically server based}
> Playstation Portable support
> Anyone with a NGP would be great (Jks, I don't think anyones got there hands on it yet )

What will you get in return?

> A free lifetime subscription to the premium service, removing the advertisement and access to use the Turbo Servers feature.
> Might even be able to arrange a free copy of our EnviroTek 2011 home automation system (Excluding accessory's, lol couldn't afford that as well)

What do you need to do?

Download some files from the PSN, via our program (I have working links :P even though the store is down) and see if the premium service works

[We will schedule certain downloads, at different times to ensure there is a set group seeding.]

Provide feedback, for any bugs etc like it didn't download via the turbo server, or my application crashed or download wouldn't finish.

Requirements:
.NET 4.0 (NOT CLIENT EDITION)
Windows XP or greater
Administrator Privileges
Basic Computer Knowledge
A Playstation 3 or PSP console.
Broadband Connection (You must have one already, your reading this!) lol

Please e-mail me via my profile. [If you receive a reply, you have been chosen to participate otherwise you will not receive a reply, please allow 24 hours to find out]

Thank you,

Is this going to cater for europe games as well as US?, i'm liking the app so far but don't want to have to grab just US games for the DLC. Apart from that its a great idea, hope it leads to more dlc getting made usable for people, i don't get why some dlc is hacked so to speak and others cant be ?

we really need some xbox jtaggers to get with the ps3 scene to move things along. C4e is supposed to taking an interest which will be a great asset to us. Here's hoping.

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.

Jordandyckes - Tried the full install of .Net and it didn't work, same issue of error on launch.

daveshooter - tried the path test from c:\...path >> c:\robpath.txt and get "Access is denied" error

Ran the cmd prompt as admin and it worked. When I opened the robpath.txt file it contained - PATH=txt

I'm working on a few fixes for my next build 3.72, due for release by Tuesday 4th May in time for the store when it comes online.

I've potentially fixed the issue, rob was encountering and minor ram leaks due to a few static strings.

We'll keep you all updated when it releases

New version is on track, and all going well I'll release on Monday evening if it goes to plan.

A delay for the release of 3.72, as we're skipping straight to 3.80 due to release very soon with these features:

> Attempted to show error reasons for some problems like port already in use.
> A new premium membership allowing access to distributed servers, perfect for those on 20Mbps connections who want
to be able to actually receive the full 20Mbps
> Premium members will not have the advert shown on start-up

How will premium function?

It will be based on a selection of packages giving you options such as:

> 10GB for £2.85 a month
> 20GB for £4.95 a month

This is perfect to use when you find the Playstation Servers just aren't maxing out your connection, our servers can provide up to 100Mbps (Will scale on demand so your connection stays fast)

All accounts are rolling contracts, you can cancel at anytime so please feel free to try our service when it launches hopefully
in the next 24 hours in time for the recover of the playstation store

We'll have more details on release.

Just noticed an epic self fail "next build 3.72, due for release by Tuesday 4th May in time for the store when it comes online"

I'm going to upload the new version prior to the store returning, so hopefully by 11am UK time

That will allow time for us to active accounts etc only option 1) 10GB for £2.85 will be available due to hosting limits at the current time, not enough funding yet to expand.

Rob if you click Start then right click on my computer and then move down to manage, then a window will pop up and you should see Event Viewer, there is your logs, in there it will tell you why its crashing.

Also can you pop to a command prompt and type this.
path >> c:\robpath.txt

Then goto your c: drive and you should see a file called robpath.txt, then open it and past it here, if you like. if that helps so we can look and see if your paths are right. Just a thought.
