How to install games larger than 4gb on multiman??
How to install games larger than 4gb on multiman?? –
So I haven't really kept up with the scene for the last year or so and I was wondering if there is a solution? I want to install games on my ps3 that are larger than 4gb and have no idea how. please help! Thanks!
Also, is there also an option to just transfer the files to the ps3 from the computer via an ethernet cable?

I'm assuming you mean 4GB+ files on an external, because the internal drive has no problem with this. Multiman does have a feature that allows you to cache the large files on the internal when they are split on the external. Just attempt to play them(the game cover should be gray) and you will be prompted to cache.
You can use FTP to transfer over ethernet.
I think your speaking of the FAT32 filesystem issue
where no single file can be larger then 4gb
(games that are bigger then 4gb will work, but it cant have a file that is bigger then 4gb)
to get around this, you can use multimans NTFS support if you just want to copy them onto the system, or FTP the stuff onto it
You can use a program like PS3 Splitter which will split the large file(s), that way you can copy the entire game onto a drive formatted in FAT32. Once it's done it deletes the large file(s). Take your FAT32 drive to your PS3 and load up MultiMan. Multiman will see the game, but at this point it's not directly playable without caching. Rather than caching, I prefer to use the COPY function in MultiMan to copy to the entire game to the PS3's internal drive. During the copy procedure, MultiMan rejoins the split files back together, then you can delete it from your USB drive.
