I also have no idea why people doesn't provide source code or at least, non encrypted self of his homebrew programs :rolleyes:
They are NOT intended for use in switching from one drive to another.
They are merely indicators showing which drive the currently selected game (or movie) resides on.
Normally the listing contains entries from all the available drives.
If there is a BD game disc in the tray, this is always shown at the top of the list.
But below that entry the games and/or AVCHD movies are listed in alphabetical order, regardless of whether they reside on an internal or external drive. and as you move your selection through the list of entries, the drive indicators at the bottom of the screen show which drive the currently selected entry resides on. That is the only purpose of these indicators.
Not necessarily. You may be doing something else wrong, because permission problems do not always prevent games from being listed. Often when people need a permission fix they still see the games in multiMAN, as the problem only affects the launching of the games, but not their listing.Quote:
Apparently I need to run permissions on the internal so it will display ftp games stored there. However, multiman always defaults to my external drive; thanks.
I think you need to use the multiMAN File Manager (Enter it by Select+Start, Exit from it by Select+L1), where you can check exactly where your games are stored, to ensure that they are in one of the paths supported by your current multiMAN configuration.
Personally I have each game stored in "/dev_hdd0/GAMES/", which is the default game folder of multiMAN, with the contents from each game disc enclosed in its own subfolder with names such as "BLES00452==Disgaea 3". Such subfolder names are quite arbitrary of course, but I like having names that show both the 'human' game name and the product code this way. It makes it much easier to identify stuff in the File Manager. So for the game mentioned here the full access path will be "/dev_hdd0/GAMES/BLES00452==Disgaea 3/", and inside that folder I have all the files and folders as directly copied from my original disc.
Ooops! I guess I was to eager to post, before noticing that your problem was already solved.
Still, I'll leave my post here as others may find it useful (and since my hunch about your problem was correct).

It is not just a matter of the files failing to be copied.
In some cases no such file exists in the original game disc.
That is the case with FF13, for example, where the original disc contains no "PIC1.PNG".

To sort it, google is your friend, do a picture search, go the panel on the left hand size, do Any size, Exactly, enter 1920 x1080 & this will yield lots of excellent quality gt5 & I presume ff13 pictures perfectly sized to your needs. Copy into your Paintshop Pro / Photoshop /Art package, name & save as a .PNG file, PIC1.PNG in the PS3_GAME folder, if on external drive or ftp/multiman it if the game is on your PS3 internal hard disk. This will show up as the game wallpaper when you exit to XMB.
With this method you can customize all of your game wallpapers. If you change the existing PIC1.PNG wallpaper in the game's folder, multiman doesnt seem to pick it up on restart, so place a copy in the multiman cache, dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/cache folder & it will show up in multiman.
***Word of warning, the pic must be 1920x1080, or it may crash multiman!***
You can make your own wallpapers, put YOUR OWN car into GT5! (Well, sort of!!)
Finally i updated to 1.16.00 and all working fine, i like the new 4x2 view mode :)
Thanks and great work!
Not sure what you could be doing wrong - My back-up works just fine - I use a disc in the drive all the time just to avoid problems. What manager are you running? If your Running the latest multiMAN (1.16) you will need to make sure to install the bdemu.bin - Hope this helps
Before 10 minutes i try to play dead space 2 but nothing.I install the dead space extraction from a pkg file and it works fine.But the main dead space 2 dont play with MM.I try vanquish,sonic unleased,f1 2010,call of duty black ops,hot pursuit but nothing.
By the way, the ps3's internal drive is formated as fat 32 as well. Just sayin'...
Oh -- and before you post back just to prove yourself right, save yourself the trouble as i'm ignoring you now. :shhh: ;)
