Article: Aldostools Releases PS3 FTP Client 1.0 –
Thanks @Tranced for the link to COMCTL32.OCX
You know I find that Aldostools SFO editor is much better then PS3SFOEdit so props on that, but I have to point out that this is a simple FTP client that skips files that are by the author deemed "unnecessary" for whatever reasons (space I assume). As a long time scener one should know sceners don't use any sort of "rips" as they are "nuked". They use as close to 1:1 copies as you can get and that is for the PS3 scene an intact .ISO image of the original disc with nothing added and/or removed and for the most part stay in their original archive. If you are tight on space which honestly when dealing with images up to 50GB you should already be prepared to deal with it then this program could be useful for those unprepared people that don't bother to worry about having properly formatted games as you never know what the future might hold and require you to have to boot your precious backups your ripping apart. With that said it is good to see another release and hope you continue to provide innovative solutions for the masses.
@aldostools My pleasure. When I downloaded your app I got the error. (I'm using the outdated Win XP running SP3)
Another note. Thanks for the tools you are releasing, you have inspired me to develop my own applications for Windows which might not be PS3 related at first untill I come up with something useful.
@brakk3n - the "unnecessary" files you are talking about are language files and updates. People delete the updates from the disc anyway and if you don't speak french, german, italian, etc then having the language files is entirely pointless. When I ran his rip app it found over 100 gigs of junk files. You may want to preserve the "purity" of your scene releases, but to me that's a lot of wasted space that can be used for other things. Besides, once you unzip the files they are no longer technically scene releases because you can't point a tracker to your files and share them as scene releases
@iPredateur: it is a Win32 application (Windows 7, Vista, 2008, XP, 2000, ME, 98, 95). It connects to a jailbroken PS3 application that runs an FTP server (multiMAN, OpenFTP, BlackB0x, DragonFTP)
@brakken & @BuhamatLord: I agree with both.
@Tranced: I'm looking forward to try your applications.
For upload / download big files, FileZilla is better.
@ aldostools, Did you get my message?
EDit: Well, hmmm looking at your new PC software, I see you added an options for the patterns. That's actually what I was gonna look into and the Hanging when selecting the Main root of GAMES(GAMEZ, Ect) folder.
@Aldostools - one thing I noticed was when I ran the rip app at the True Blue release Skyrim by Paradiso and removed the language files, the game would no longer show an icon to launch. Not sure if it was just a glitch because at the time TB wouldn't even show my Final Fantasy XIII disc icon (actual disc inserted in drive) until I installed the Rebug spoofer or if you can't run it through TB releases because of some kind of check system
I know all about people ripping data to save space, rencoding movies, downsampling sound, cutting FMV and so forth have been going on for ages. If you don't care about the purity of your games then fine, but I know by experience that cutting corners can result in games not working properly and/or adverse side effects popping up down the road esp. when new methods of running them arrive. Per say, a CFW that emulates OFW is released, but requires the PUP files for each game or forces integrity checks, etc ... Oh boy! Screw me! I deleted them because I'm too cheap to purchase proper sized hardware for my collection. Trackers? LOL. Who the hell in the "scene" uses trackers; wait, the people who can't afford to buy proper sized hardware due to the fact they are probably illegally obtaining the games and therefor fit into the sub-par "pirate/warez kiddie" categories. There are these things called .srr for people who still download the scene releases for the games they already own and want to save space. That's if you don't create the ISO images yourself and the SHA-1's match up (aka should-be-legal backups) which is all I would care about due to the fact that having directories of RAR's isn't my idea of collecting, but are to people with fast pipes and lots of space who have the space. I would settle for just a proper image of the game is all - no raping it to death.

Sorry if my standards are insulting to warez kiddies (not saying you are of course).
@ aldostools; thanks for seeing both points of view, I do understand both points and both are valid.
