• Backup Managers, PS3 Hacks , 30.01.2011
    Looks like Dean is setting up to release v1.15.00 with much more improvements since this v1.14.02 update is an release candidate. This update improves upon disc and disc-less support. Thanks Dean!

    It is required that you have a Blu-ray Disk in the drive at all times if you can, disk-less compatibility can vary! Make sure you restart your system anytime an Lv2 Application has been used (GAIA/Lv2 V6) before starting multiMAN v1.14.0+

    * multiMAN v1.14.0 is a stand-alone installation, no prior installs required. If you have never installed multiMAN, use the v1.14.00 Mega Pack to get all the extra’s (covers & themes) installed, otherwise use the base package, then install v1.14.02 over v1.14.00.

    *If you have v1.14.01 installed, just install v1.14.02 over that. No delete required.

    * multiMAN v1.14.0+ should not require you to run Lv2 v/any! Do not run before multiman! You should only need Lv2 for Fix Permissions. I would restart the system after running Lv2.

    * Delete prior versions before installing v1.14.00.

      It'd be nice to get discless to support to work better. I have a few of my games backed up that won't work under it (burnout paradise after the update, nhl 11, etc..).

      It's not that hard to leave a genuine game in the drive (I tend to leave in hot shots golf as its the only one of my games that won't work at all when backed up). The only time it sucks is when you're in the middle of watch a season of a tv show on blu and you have to get up and switch the game disc back in when you want to play games.

      Glad to see there still working on enhancing the discless support.

      Yeah nice release, but for some reason I cannot get the Heavy Rain cover to show, it shows a screen from the game and trys to download everytime I log into Multiman. Its in the picture above tho!Im half way through the game and its bugging out on me a fair bit, at the part where you have to go through the electric fences and it wont let me try the right path. Anyone else suffering any iseeues with Heavy Rain?

      Could somebody explain to me how to view videos on my ps3 using this program. I heard it could be done by putting video files in a virtual folder that can be seen on the xmb. I have tried to figure this out but i'm never able to see the vids or the that folder.

      Want to give my full Respect & Thanks for this nice MultiMAN!!!!!

      All Games that i have work like a charm!!!:thrasher:

      The Games i have on a External HD!!!
      i always have a disc inside the PS3, so no problems, just fantastic.
      i have also testet without disc inside, but most Games don't work, like that. Only assassin's creed brotherhood without disc. but as i say, no Problem for me, i always have a disc in the PS3

      Thanks!!!!!

      Thanks for the great app!

      Firstly I hope in the near future we can have all backups run disc-less.

      IMO no point having a disc in a JB PS3 just to play backups.

      Secondly I hope we can soon have cheat code device such as Code Freak or Action Replay or Codebreaker.

      Lastly I hope we can play PS2 backups (with cheat codes) real soon

      Choto Mate!

      This is just too much, I'm not that much of a noob, but theres just too many files to keep track of on this installation. Usually something like Gia, or rogero theres only 1 package file and thats it! This thing has way too much to keep track of. Can someone break it down how to install this from lets say a fresh CFW update and has nothing installed.
      What files do i need and where do they go.

      Lets say I just installed Kmeaw, Whats next. The more detailed the more helpful you will be to me and im sure alot more people like myself.

      This is a great program! And I can't wait for the update. Although I haven't had any problems with it at all yet.



      To install it, just install the latest package file and make a GAMES or GAMEZ folder on your hd and that is all you need. Unless you want all the covers too, then download the complete deal and install that package.

      If you are on Original 3.55 Firmware then:

      important: go into "Recovery Mode" Tutorial = Google

      1. - install "kmeaw CFW 3.55" already patched versions on internet, Google
      2. - install "multiMAN 1.14.00 MEGA Pack" first, then
      3. - install "multiMAN 1.14.02 BASE

      4. - External HD (must be format Fat32) Games Folder is called "GAMEZ" inside that Folder you put your Games, like "BCES00609" or "BLU-14654" or whatever it calls. you also can rename this Folders with the Name of the Game if you want.

      4. - GAMETIME!

      Remember to Use always a Original Disc inside the PS3.
      For me all games work from Eternal HD, i don't have try Internal HD yet.

      How can i get my Multiman to detect my games and use the covers.

      I have to go in the the main games folder everytime i want to load a game,

      I have about 10 backed up games on my HDD and Mulit man wont detect them unless i go in to the main games folder and load the boot file.

      Hello! I have a question. I am running multiman 1.14. Without running Lv2 in the begging i got a message for playload (i think) and games dont play. If i run Lv2 in the begging, everything is ok. Is there any problem? Because multiman sayed that in 1.14 version there is no need to run patch.Thanks in advance!

      Running multiman 1.14.01 base. and installed lv2 patch. i dont need to run the lv2 patch every time, only once.

      i stay at 3.55 kmeaw and multiman 1.14.01 for while, everything works great! no crashes or whatshowever.

      (always play with orginal game in BL-drive)

      requires pure rip backups! so dont mod your back-ups. though havent tryed modded back-ups

      Hello everyone,

      I was wondering what do I do with the options_default config settings file?

      naturally I would place it in the same place as the PKG file but the instructions said to Copy this file to your Playstation3 as: /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/options_default.ini

      I am lost with that. If you can please give me detail instructions on how to do this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
