I already posted about this 3 weeks ago, but I think it is still good to remind this alternative method to show PSN games in multiMAN and have them playable from USB (without having to use the gameDATA tool):

It only needs to have a BD game folder structure: /dev_usb00/GAMES/NPXX00000/PS3_GAME and leave the EBOOT.BIN, ICON0.PNG and PARAM.SFO in the internal HDD /dev_hdd0/game/NPXX00000
Once the PSN game is mounted with multiMAN, it can be launched from XMB using the "★ /app_home/PS3_GAME/"
It would be convenient if multiMAN could verify these NPxx0000 games when they are launched and auto-copy the EBOOT.BIN (SFO and ICON) to /dev_hdd0/game/NPXX00000 if they are not present.
NOTE: Not all PSN games from external HDD work with this method, but many large ones do...
~ Dreams and dedication are a powerful combination.
... multiMAN is a perfect demonstration.
