Questions - Best manager, and discless mode on 3.55 Kmeaw
OK so as far as I am aware there is no real place that is in the process of documenting which games work on what CFW and backup manager. PSJCL is very clumsily organized, and old info for the most part. Ideally there would be a public google doc that all kinds of people could contribute to (maybe there is one already?) with detailed info about which CFW, which backup manager, and what mode (discless vs. disc in drive, etc.) was used to get the game running. Maybe PSX scene as the primary site for PS3 hacking news could announce on the home page the place to update information? Right now it just seems like a mess so I am trying to determine the best and most stable way to manage my backups.
I previously jailbroke on 3.41 with a TI-84 Plus, and was generally using Open Manager (latest versions as they came out) and it was with Hermes v4b. This worked very well with discless mode and there were only a couple games that required the disc in the drive.
However, now that I'm on kmeaw's CFW, it's certainly much nicer in that you don't have to power cycle or have a dongle in the drive, but I'm finding that with Gaia Manager 2.02 (I notice there is now 2.04 so I'll be updating and re-testing) the discless mode doesn't work on games that it worked on before. My two examples that I've tried are Batman: Arkham Asylum and NHL 11, both US versions. They work with disc in but not without.
Anyways, just wondering if anyone was having the same experience with other backup managers, and also if there is any place that has organized, thorough, and up to date documentation on which games work and how, and on what firmware etc. So far all I can seem to find are the PSJCL and the few threads on here with like 8 games. Thanks.
