    this is for organizing. i installed a game pkg with NPUB serial. now it shows up in the dev_hdd0/game and also shows in XMB game menu along with HEN, mmCM, etc. i have some other games in dev_hdd0/GAMES that i can access through webman. is it possible to transfer that NPUB game to that folder so that it shows up with those other games?

    i tried creating a PS3_GAME folder inside the NPUB folder, copy-pasting the contents in that, but it doesn't work. it shows game icons on multiman, but when launching it shows "Unsupported data" in XMB and gives 80028f08 error.

    please redirect if there's a similar thread. thank you.

    Digital backup (converted games or pkg games) are installed into dev_hdd0/game. While a backup you copied from a disk using any backup manager like multiman are located in dev_hdd0/GAMES. You can't just rename a digital games and place it in dev_hdd0/GAMES And also expect it to work you are doing it wrong.

    I appreciate you pointing out my wrongness. I guess my question is how to do it right. how do you transfer from dev_hdd0/game to dev_hdd0/GAMES and still be able to play the game?

    AFAIK there's no way.
    The game folder is officially used by the PS3, the GAMES folder however is only related with CFW.
    What you can do is config the WEBMANMOD to search for games also in the game folder, but they still would appear on the XMB, but if you put them in folders it would help reduce the mess.

    If you tick this box in webMAN MOD setup it will add the dev_hdd0/game/ games to webMANs screens.
