    It appears that developer @aldostools is back in full force currently as we have seen the dev add new support with 4.83/4.84 DEX Support for webMAN MOD. While also Incorporating a few new features into the popular plugin as well. This powerful little plugin contains tons of functionality (feature list below), With this new release of v1.47.12, we now see a couple of fun new features have that have been introduced to the plugin as well.

    For nonBC consoles owners, that use the webMAN MOD plugin to load and mount PS2 ISO will be pleased to know that developer Aldostools has added improved support for PS2 Configs with new automation and detection of PS2 Config files, like what we see in @Zar's ManaGunZ backup manager. Also another fun feature with some potential for various uses has been been support for boot_inif.txt, This feature is an automation feature (like a "autoexec.bat" script) that includes support for various commands outlined (see tab below). Some uses Aldostools has outlined have included the ability to backup important files at system boot like Game Saves, Registry Backup, Logs, ect,,, Swap Files, Remap multiple files/folders at startup, System clenup and/or initialization on every boot. For additional details about these newly added features please revert to the corresponding tabs below.

    • About: "Auto CONFIG" for PS2 ISO

      A new feature in webMAN MOD 1.47.12 with the objective of increase PS2 compatibility to a similar level of ManaGunZ

      This build now detects the game id for the PS2 ISO and automatically looks for the corresponding CONFIG file in ManaGunZ folder or in the wMM updater folder /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD (if it haven't been deleted by the user) when the game is mounted.

      Added new setting: "Auto CONFIG" in /setup.ps3 (next to the option PLAYSTATION®2, in the section "Scan for content")

      Now webMAN MOD looks for the CONFIG file in the following paths (in this order) when the PS2 ISO is mounted and the "Auto CONFIG" is enabled (only if the PS2 ISO doesn't have a CONFIG file already):

      • /dev_hdd0/game/PS2CONFIG/<gameid>.CONFIG

      • /dev_hdd0/game/PS2CONFIG/CONFIG/CUSTOM/<gameid>.CONFIG
      • /dev_hdd0/game/PS2CONFIG/CONFIG/NET/<gameid>.CONFIG
      • /dev_hdd0/game/PS2CONFIG/CONFIG/GX/<gameid>.CONFIG
      • /dev_hdd0/game/PS2CONFIG/CONFIG/SOFT/<gameid>.CONFIG

      • /dev_hdd0/game/MANAGUNZ0/CONFIG/CUSTOM/<gameid>.CONFIG
      • /dev_hdd0/game/MANAGUNZ0/CONFIG/NET/<gameid>.CONFIG
      • /dev_hdd0/game/MANAGUNZ0/CONFIG/GX/<gameid>.CONFIG
      • /dev_hdd0/game/MANAGUNZ0/CONFIG/SOFT/<gameid>.CONFIG

      • /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/CONFIG/CUSTOM/<gameid>.CONFIG
      • /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/CONFIG/NET/<gameid>.CONFIG
      • /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/CONFIG/GX/<gameid>.CONFIG
      • /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/CONFIG/SOFT/<gameid>.CONFIG

      For convenience of the users, the updater includes a copy of the database of CONFIG files from ManaGunZ (in case the user doesn't have ManaGunZ installed). Credits to @Zar and everyone who have contributed to maintain the database of CONFIG.

      If the PS2 ISO already has a CONFIG associated, that file is used without having to perform the aforementioned search.

    • About: "boot_init.txt" for PS2 ISO

      I have been experimenting with a new automation feature for webMAN MOD.
      This is a sort of "autoexec.bat" script for PS3 that allows to copy/rename/map/delete files when the system boots up.

      The file name of the script file is: /dev_hdd0/boot_init.txt
      and it currently supports the following commands:

      # or * at start of line for remarks
      map path1=path2 <- makes path1 point to path2
      copy path1=path2 <- copy path1 to path2
      ren path1=path2 <- rename path1 as path2
      del path <- recursive delete of folder or file
      md path <- creates a path (folders are created recursively)
      wait path <- waits until 15 seconds for a file or folder
      abort if exist path <- abort the script if a file or folder exists
      abort if not exist path <- abort the script if a file or folder exists
      unmap path <-- unmap current path

      abort if R1 <- abort the script if button R1 is being pressed
      abort if L1 <- abort the script if button L1 is being pressed

      Example: The following script *mutes* the coldboot sound at start-up :)
      This example is already included in /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/USRDIR/boot_init.txt
      It should be moved manually to /dev_hdd0/boot_init.txt if you want to try it.

      Other uses for the script are:
      - Auto backup of important files at start-up (e.g. registry, saves, logs, etc.).
      - Swap files
      - Remap multiple files or folders at start up
      - System cleanup and/or initialization on every boot.
      - etc.

      The lite edition of webMAN MOD does not support this automation script
      Info for devs: The new code is found in main.c, lines 3682 to 3727.

      DISCLAIMER: The feature is still experimental. Use it at you own risk.

    • In this build also the start of PS3MAPI server (port 7887) requires the option "PS3MAPI" enabled in /setup.ps3. That option is found in "XMB/In-Game PAD SHORTCUTS", next to DEL CFW SYSCALLS. If the option PS3MAPI is "disabled", the PS3MAPI server is not started (saving some resources at start-up). That PS3MAPI service in wMM is mainly used for the remote features of the PS3 Manager API tool, which is an optional replacement for CCAPI.

      Note: When the option PS3MAPI is "enabled", the syscall 8 / lv1_peek (used by Cobra) remains active when the CFW syscalls are disabled with R2+TRIANGLE (except when psnpatch is used in conjunction, which removes all CFW syscalls -including syscall 8). The syscall 8 uses a "fake disable" and all disabled syscalls can be restored without reboot.

      @aldostools something went wrong and in this compilation you wmm setup in xmb.

      That package is a standalone version of the config database of ManaGunZ used to improve the compatibility of PS2 games. The package installs as game data in /dev_hdd0/game/PS2CONFIG

      It is not longer required to keep the ManaGunz or the updater installed. Also it's easier to update.

      Sorry but I don't see what's wrong in that picture. Could you provide more details?

      BTW The package that I initially uploaded yesterday had the icons mixed. If this is what you mean, please re-download the updater from github or from brewology.

      I just checked the project in github and I see these segments in webMAN.xml and webMAN_PL.xml

      Also there is a reference to these segments in the sprx to add that them to mygames.xml:

      Please verify if webMAN.xml and webMAN_PL.xml are being created in this folders:

      Also verify that you don't have a check mark in this option of /setup.ps3:
      [] Disable grouping of content in "webMAN Games"

      Remember to rescan XML & reboot if you change this setting.

      PL xml is a standard form

      and [] Disable grouping of content in "webMAN Games" it was still unmarked

      @aldostools when replacing files over FTP to dev_flash. the file permission becomes 0600 instead of 0644 ,is t here anyway to fix this? FTP on REBUG TOOLBOX/mmCM doesn't do this though.
      T.A.U likes this.
    7. aldostools
      It's weird that the file permision is 0600, when ftp explicitly performs a chmod 0777 after the file has been uploaded, unless that permision is failing at leaving it with the default 0600.

      if((read_e = (u64)recv(data_s, buffer2, BUFFER_SIZE_FTP, MSG_WAITALL)) > 0)
      if(cellFsWrite(fd, buffer2, read_e, NULL) != CELL_FS_SUCCEEDED) {err = FAILED; break;}
      cellFsChmod(filename, MODE);

      This is the constant MODE:
      static const u32 MODE = 0777;

      could it be because of ftp client? I'm using filezilla and it doesn't even let me change file permission over FTP command.

    9. aldostools
      I'm in the office now. Could you compile a build with MODE 0644 instead of 0777?

      Maybe 777 is not allowed....

      EDIT: Or simply comment the cellFsChmod in the lines 946 of ftp.h

      I checked Rebug Toolbox and the ftp server doesn't change the permissions.

      I've uploaded the source code for 1.47.14 with the following changes:
      - Ftp server now writes to /dev_blind in safe mode (rename the existing file before overwrite it, deletes the backup if the upload was successful and restore the original if the upload failed)
      and sets permissions to 0644 instead of 0777 (only for /dev_blind)
      - Added support for /boot_plugins_nocobra.txt (Starbuged 4.84.3)

      The updater is not released yet, but the sprx can be downloaded and installed manually from:

      BTW The upload in "safe mode" could be an useful feature for Rebug Toolbox's FTP server ;)

      @aldostools Would it be possible to disable the double beep when restarting your PS3, & the single beep when shutting down/disabling CFW (R2 + Triangle)?

      Hi, I've an issue: webman mod not see yet the game in the PS3ISO folder. The problem started after this step: I've added s new game and it was listed (95), after launch prentfs (the last one) no game was listed. I've tried some reboot, refresh, I've chenge the plug-in memory, nothing change. But multimam see all of games. What do I do?
    14. aldostools
      Please, run prepNTFS again and check if it created the files with the extension .ntfs[PS3ISO] in the folder /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp

      If there are not .ntfs[PS3ISO] files in that folder, the problem could be prepNTFS.

      If the files are there, the problem could be related to the XML. Try refreshing it again with SELECT+L3 and reboot. If the games still don't show, try increasing the plugin memory usage in /setup.ps3 then refresh the XML again and reboot.

      You can also check if the games are listed in HTML.

    15. U_Cannone
      There are the .ntfs files
      I've tried all of that things again, iveI set the memory to Max but nothing change :/

      I think webman can't read the PS3ISO folder anymore, it says "no files" on the file manager. Now I try to disable and re-enable the cobra

      Edit: nothing changes, no games
    16. aldostools
      Try uninstalling webMAN using
      Then re-install webMAN again... try with the full edition (hold L1 in the updater).

      I did now that, no changes. Thanks for the help, I will using Irisman (hoping for no ban ahah) and every day I will try to refresh the gamelist ecc

      @aldostools I find probably a bug, i cant uncheck GAME MENU START/L2+R2.

      Hi, I just installed wmm again and I'm very happy with it! Thanks!
      I have a question though:
      When I enable the ps1_netemu option in the scanning submenu, psx games stop working (the psx logo doesn't show, but I can still exit the games through the PS menu).
      There also seems to be another bug related to that: after disabling the ps1_netemu option wmm continues to send the message "ps1_netemu loaded" after mounting psx isos.

      Hello everyone, I recently subscribed and I am very happy to be part of this forum, anyway, I love using webman mod, I saw the feature of being able to apply configuration patches to encrypted ps2 games, I'm just having problems to make it work, I have put the gameid of the game something like SLUS_211.68.ISO.BIN.ENC but it just does not take the configuration, I have to enter it manually and rename it to CONFIG without extensions, of course, I have the PS2CONFIG.PKG package installed, but no matter how much I try, it doesn't happen automatically, does anyone know if I'm doing something wrong? I would appreciate it very much, thank you very much for everyone's time
