Files has released a very useful program where we can check the integrity of the game files as well as the compatibility with the internal or the external rather than going to the site to check it. The application which is called Open Manager Tool also has a split files program on top as well as the “OMT.PRO” file that can be added to every game. Currently, he is still seeking for some guys to fill out the data which is very important to our PS3 Jailbreak community. Full credit to Files for his excellent work.
I made a program for Open Manager just for my use, but i decided later to share it with your community, hoping that someone can help me.
It is called Open Manager Tool
I think it works well, and for now it only add some feature more than the others “splitting programs”.
The program check the integrity of the directories and the fat32 file compatibility, and add for every Game a so called “OMT.PRO” file.
That file contains all necessary data to autorun programs with specific options, such as controller patch or internal external hd installation compatibility.
The structure is:
#Open Manager Tools properties – GameID: BLUS30175
HDD0 says it is not compatible with internal HD and HDD1 that it’s compatible.
USB0 same as internal but for fat32 external
SC20 says if controller patch syscall_2 is to be set or not
BDR0 if an original BDrom must be putted or not into drive.
OMV1.1.2 says that this game has been tested with this version of OpenManager
ODV1.1 says that the game has been tested with that version of PSGroove dongle.
CMT is for user comments
I made the structure easy, because i need help from someone to port this option files into Open Manager!!!
I cannot do by myself for time reasons, and for office reasons ( i cannot have a testing ps3 here )
The Open Manager modified has to, for example, look into these options and show to the user: the comments, the warnings if running internal compatible program from external drive (or disable these games), or running games without original bdrom inserted.
Could also check for compatibility version of the Dongle and the Manager.
The program has, also, some interesting features to manage these files, such us import/merge function and so on.
So, i’m also searching for proud guys that can fill out all the data! it’s very important for all the community to share these settings!.
I will continue to maintain the program by myself, as Open Manager evolves, but i will also appreciate help by other coders.
As soon as possible i will upload the sources for that projects
They are compilable under Linux,Mac and Windows.
UPDATE: Files has released v.1.1 with some new features and bug fixes.
Added utilities management for Covers.
The program will automatically add the covers located into “coversRepository” folder, if the correct game is found.
Covers can be imported from various image formats.
The program converts them into PNG compatible files with correct sizes (480Xiii) as the original Open Manager needs.
Also added support for side and back covers..
for future development of loaders… or future 3d covers…
