Elotrolado.net: Releases "Flex Manager"
Elotrolado.net: Releases "Flex Manager" –
(The following write-up, was added by GaryOPA to improve this news story!)
The always busy Spanish modders over at Elotrolado have taken the source released by Jurai2 from PS3NEWS called "Sexy Manager" and improved it to operate like the Netflix movie interface showing the various PS3 Games from your hard drives in nice flowing cover interface, much like the famous "CoverFlow" USB Loader found on the Wii-Scene over at our sister site WIINEWZ
Here's the link: Flex Manager [08/10/2010]

EDIT #2: covers go in /dev_hdd0/games/OMAN46756/covers/ and are by title id, ex BCUS12345.PNG (notice that all letters need to be capitalized for this to work. Reported that having .png will not work). Covers need to be 348x400 in size in order to work.

Reason: Make better for the front page, added all attachments!
Is this really Jurai's (Jewrye's) work, or did he rip it off from someone else and call it his own? Can never tell with that guy considering there is never any source code being posted. That and the release at Elotrolado.net looks way more polished then his and it's called Flex Manager and not Cover Manager. My guess is, he's trying to rip off code again.

Jurai is the original coder creating cover manager and dogie721 using jurai's code as a base created flex manager so in this case the ripping of code was not done by the accused.
at any rate I'm just laughing at the scene being GUI whores.
I updated your post and move it to the front page, feel free to correct any mistakes, it is such a mess, since the release of "Open Manager" all these various versions, some better then others and some more improved then others, it is getting very hard to know what is the best one to use, and who the real author of the source changes is!

Yep it is funny, but the CoverFlow on the Wii is very famous people love to make it look all nice and pretty. -- I still like personally your fork for the best so far in compatibily of games, need to finish testing all this for my in-depth review of the various dongles and payloads to publish later tonight! -- It is giving me a royal headache!

Agreed, compatibility should come first. The GUI can always be improved upon once everything is running as it should.

I want to keep sexy manager and get rid of the other 2.
I'd rather be complaining that there are too many rather than too few launchers any day.
