    Hello there, i have a PS3 Hen and i wonder if is possible to manually install folder games like it was a PKG to appear on the XMB? Like the PKGs are located in dev_hdd0>game>(GAME CODE) right? Is it possible to make this work?

    Use webMAN mod to mount and play from the XMB and HAN style will still work

    But a method without mounting with Webman or Mm to have them on the XMB like a PKG doesn't exist?

    Well you can yes, what you are talking about is basically a CFW2OFW game, with a CFW2OFW game you run a folder rip of the game from dev_hdd0/game/ and you use the eboot from an update pkg to run it, As those eboots are meant to be ran from HDD and not disc. Now on HEN you can even patch the eboot to run from hdd and don't even need an update.

    Look into the helper apps for doing that, like CFW2OFW and PS3Converter I think they are called.

    since i went to hen i been wanting such thing since i've been so accustomed to boot my games straight from xmb,i went to hell and back searching and i found 2 alternatives that are LastGAME customizer that is a function inside Ps3Tools and webman classics but both are pretty old and haven't been updated in years and who knows if those 2 works on hen,sadly i been lacking time and would be of great help if anyone could test both on HEN,both are on psxplace.

    sorry for any mistakes english is not my main language

    lastgame customizer is a function inside ps3 tools,a pc pogram that can do a mouthfull of things like ps2 classics,folder to iso and many others,inside the multiman tools folder there is this option that basicaly uses the lastgame funcion of multiman that create a shortcut of the last played game on the xmb but makes a specific shortcut of a game,i still have to test and i kind of doubt that this function works on hen but trying it wont hurt anyone and there is the webman alternative that i speaked as well that is the same thing,i thinking of trying myself

    UPDATE:Tried the LastGAME customizer option,no sucess at all,it seems like opens something but when gets back at the xmb there's nou disc mounted,the only option left is webman classics but i need some help setting that one up
