Remote play PS3 games on your PSP through gaia manager-swap and change games remotely
REMOTE PLAY GAMES VIA GAIA MANAGER ON PSP. Tonight i was modifying my param.sfo files so i could remote play them via my psp i know its been done lol. But what was annyoing me was, that every time i wanted to change the Ps3 title i was playing, i had to come downstairs take ps3/psp off remote play and do it via ps3s xmb. It was doing my head in as you cant load gaia manager via remote play(BUT YOU CAN!) After a bit of playing around and no code writing experince, i figured it out.
Heres what i did: Went into my /dev_hdd0/game/GAIA01985 via my Ftp server and pulled out the param.sfo file and copied it to my desktop. Then i opened it with .sfo editor tried to enable remote play by ticking the box, didnt work? so i looked at another param.sfo file i had,to find out what was missing, and then went to my gaia mangaer parama.sfo file went to *advanced edit* part of sfo editor. (Youve got a list here of what basically the param.sfo file or your game CAN DO). I added at the bottom under title id(number 10) a number 11(#)Key-ATTRIBUTE Data-5 Padding-0 Data Type-4 and pressed "okay save changes" These changes then seemed to stick. So i went back into my ftp server back to /dev_hdd0/game/GAIA01985 and deleted the param.sfo file that was there and replaced it with my modded one. I then went back to xmb went to remote play got on my psp and hey presto i can now use gaia manager via remote play psp and change all my games from my bedroom. BONUS!
Things to note.
1.It didnt work with L2 direct boot ON.(But does when booted from gaia to xmb)
2. to get past an update just press o-circle(sounds obvious but not to al)l.
3. If your getting update messages (network) go to network settings and disable your internet connection as remote playing ps3 only works on private network anyway.
4. It only works on games that have had there param.sfo files edited to enable remote play.(same way as this except you just check the enable remote play box in sfo editor no need for advanced edit)
Basically theres the bare bones of it but it means that you can probably remote play any hack/homebrew or game that has an param.sfo file to enable psp/ps3 remote play. Havent tested on anything else ie backup manager snesx9 or anything else as im new to this and dont wanna mess anything up, but the concepts there.
QUICK STEP TUTORIAL
START UP FTP SERVER-Navigate to /dev_hdd0/game/GAIA01985 and copy the param.sfo file to your desktop.(make a copy just incase)
Open it with sfo editor- goto LOAD locate the param.sfo file on desktop. GOTO ďAdvanced editĒ and add 11(#)Key-ATTRIBUTE Data-5 Padding-0 Data Type-4 and pressed "okay save changes" then SAVE again in sfo editors main screen.
BACK TO FTP SERVER- refresh the left hand side where your desktop is (just to make sure itís the new param.sfo file) delete the old param.sfo file from /dev_hdd0/game/GAIA01985 and replace it with the modded one from your desktop.
Close it all down exit ftp etc. GOTO remote play on ps3/psp and there you have it, gaia manager remote play. Hope this helps, Tonylord.
