      I have installed this new version, but i haven't any ROMS XMB category or support. Is higly probably that i don't know how to use this new function :) Also in the HTML Games page i don't see any ROM.
      I have some gameboy games on ROMS/vba/
      Ideas? Thanks for this great work! :)

      @Checcolino80 wrote an excellent tutorial (italian):

      @STLcardsWS There was a typo in this release note (net0 and asterisks was missing)
      • Fixed default file name used for ISO created by /copy.ps3/net0/***PS3***/ or /***DVD***/
      More info about this subject (original post):
      BTW, this release has another new feature: convert any /net folder to .ISO on PS3.
      (The conversion is done by ps3netsrv. So, do not ask for ISO conversion of local folders).

      To do it, use one of the following commands:



      It might take a few minutes to create the ISO, depending of the bandwidth of the local network and the size of the folder. Also be sure that there is enough free space in the destination device where the ISO will be created; the function does not validate the free space before start.

      These commands could work also with previous builds, but in this test release I fixed the default name when the parameter &to= is omitted.

      Woah major progress!! How you keep finding ideas for new functions and space for the code to fit in that limited amount of room is beyond me. Way to go guys!!

      Is there a way to have your roms in a webmanmod xmb category sorta like
      /Webman setup/
      /PS3 Games/
      /PS2 Games/
      /PSX Games/
      /<i forgotthe other one who loads bd/dvd isos lol>/

      Google translates it fairly well:

      If you have "Disable grouping of content" unchecked and check ROMS, you will get a ROMS category with the following icon the next time that you scan the content:

      you still haven't answered to me about this one thing. this autoscripting or whatever i can call it.

      i have tried to run a psx and also ps2 game where i had no memorycard created. when i wanted to start the game, somehow the cursor jumped to memory card setting and i had to create memorycard and afterwards the game started itself without selecting the discimage.

      this somehow has scared me, but it also is a funny thing. is this a normal behaviour?
    10. ed89
      as always thanks @aldo for all the updates and ideas you still provide

      Sorry but I didn't see your original question that I didn't answer.

      If you have enabled the auto-play option in /setup.ps3, webMAN will try to start the game using explore_plugin XMB commands.

      If you start pushing buttons while the auto-play is executing, you will get unexpected results.

      Does anybody use webMAN with Minimum memory setting?


      I noticed that ever since 1.45.02, Plugin Memory usage at Minimum causes random freezing, mostly while scrolling game lists on XMB up and down. The solution was to set the usage to Standard.

      I have about 149 Games total including 5 of them hosted by netserv

      @Metion @atreyu187 @pinky @ bguerville @haxxxen @habib @aldostools @DeViL303

      Can anyone confirm this?
    15. haxxxen
      i had some weird behaviour, but no freeze. on my test ps3 are no games, so that must have prevented it.

      only the settings were messed, even i had not chosen specific options like autoplay. i had changed profiles, but there was no difference on my side.

      Yeah during development of 4.81 REX, I've been having serious instability with wMM, especially with 1.45.02+, surprisingly, there hasn't been much of reports I guess many advanced users already have been using Standard+, especially those ones who have many games.

      I use the minimum setting and get a stutter time to time but I think I only habe 50 games total on my HDD and mostly PS1/2 games. I dont own but maybe 35 PS3 games and all aren't on my HDD. I have always chalked it up to having 5 plugins running. Artemis, PS3Xpad, PSN Patch, VSH Menu and wmmM

PsnPatch plugin with no problems. Adding more information, happens randomly, possibility of 40%. Happens with games that require more of the ps3, games in iso format in NTFS drive.
