Download: multiMAN v02.05.03 Update POC Wave (20110905-143300) (5.66 MB) / multiMAN Motion Background POC Video (4.01 MB) / multiMAN v02.05.04 Update (20110906-140200) (1.32 MB) / Wave.divx (Black) (4.34 MB) / Wave.divx (Blue) (22.71 MB) / Showtime SELF v3.1.231.g9cfc9.dirty (3.95 MB)

To quote: multiMAN ver 02.05.03 UPDATE POC WAVE (20110905-143300).pkg

If you want to enable the background motion wave - press SELECT+TRIANGLE.

Have in mind that it is just a test update, although everything works fine when motion background is not enabled.

If you wish to enable motion background, download wave.divx and save it as /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/wave.divx

Complete changelog since 02.05.00:

  • Added: Support for 7 connected controllers to be used simultaneously
  • Added: Animation/slide effect when browsing USB/PS3HDD devices in XMMB mode
  • Added: BD Remote controller buttons: YELLOW BUTTON = Restart, RED BUTTON = QUIT
  • Changed: Color labels when selecting the color for the SIDE menu
  • Changed: Browsing USB devices in XMMB will behave like real XMB (i.e. will first open /VIDEO or /MUSIC or /PICTURE folders to look for content)
  • Fixed: Setting wallpaper after PNG file was used as wallpaper
  • Fixed: Sorting order in XMMB for PS3 HDD and USB device icons.
  • Fixed: MP3 playback (when sometimes audio plays in wrong frequency)
  • Fixed: Freezing in coverflow when fast-browsing over 100 titles
  • Added: Experimental motion/movie background support: If wave.divx is present in multiMAN's USRDIR folder you can enable motion background with SELECT+TRIANGLE.
  • Added: REFRESH option in SIDE menu for photo/music/video/retro columns when USB/PS3HDD entries are selected
  • Added: Quit and Restart options in SIDE menu for Settings column
  • Added: SELECT+TRIANGLE starts/stops motion background


SHOWTIME.SELF Version 3.1.231.g9cfc9.dirty is also added above, simply save the downloaded file as: /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/SHOWTIME.SELF


  • Added: XMB videos and last folder visible in Showtime
  • Added: Return to multiMAN when using the EXIT icon in to top right corner of main Showtime Interface
  • Since version 3.1.231 Showtime can play multi-channel audio on the PS3

He said a week or so ago (see HERE) that he is happy with it for the moment, but when he finds new features he will add them basically.

Hi, I am desperately trying to figure out a way I can play a Blu-ray BDMV folder structure from a network resource, I have spent many days \ weeks taulling various forums on different methods of how to achieve this but just can't find a way.

I really want to be able to play a Blu-ray BDMV folder structure across the network to the PS3 which would play the Blu-ray BDMV folder with menus complete. I am on CFW 3.55 with the latest Multiman installed.

Kind regards,

Kevin Wells.

Thanks for the updates. It's been a while since I updated. Things sure have come a long way since the early 01.xx series.

IIRC it said to enable hermes Emulation so do i have to also install hermes or am i missing a setting somewhere.

Download and install BDEMU2.BIN pkg. It's attached to the thread, click the paperclip and you will see it. Once installed check Multiman BD emulation again and Hermes should show now.
