      That CFW is for DEX converted consoles and i'd rather not do that . Please contact a tester with a CEX console , so we figure out if there's an issue with CEX .

      I tested on 2 different consoles and 2 different HDDs , with latest version and 1 47.06 .
    2. Shaayn
      Can you rename webMAN to WebMAN and remove in the icon webman mod just left the icon as in multiman haha

    3. aldostools
      You can do it yourself. Replace the ICON0.PNG in the pkg and change the title name in the PARAM.SFO

      See the attachment for an ICON0.PNG with just the icon...

      can you help me guys, with the best setting for webMAN

      Hello, I was wondering, where does webman save full process memory dump to?
    7. aldostools
      IIRC @DeViL303 fixed this issue some time ago with a new category_game.xml
      Maybe he could provide you a copy or direct you to the resource where he published the xml

      Edit: Here is a post from DeViL303 where he explains the cause of the issue and suggests a fix.

      Hey @aldostools , how come doesn't webman mod not using the irisman reload.self for ps1 emulation? because of fw version? Noticed that you have to use the exact irisman version corresponding to your installed firmware version. Or am i missing something?

      Just a suggestion.
    9. aldostools
      webMAN MOD uses Cobra middleware to mount all ISO games (PS3, PS2, PS1, PSP, BD/DVD).

      Cobra implementation of PS1 emulation is not as advanced as IRISMAN's implementation, but it does 90% of what users need.

      It is feasible to make webMAN start the PS1 games through IRISMAN, but it would require to have IRISMAN installed, increasing the number of file dependencies and would require the app_home/PS3_GAME icon to launch it, which many users tend to remove. Also the number of settings needed in webMAN MOD would increase too, making everything more complicated.

      It's more simple to use IRISMAN directly if you need some of its advanced features ;)

      Hi @aldostools . Is it normal to have console freezes occasionally when scanning XML content? the system freezes completely and I have to forcefully restart the system. I use an external HDD in NTFS format of 1Tb capacity to store the PS3 ISOS. I am in HFW 4.84 with HEN 2.3.2.
      Thank you very much and greetings.

      PD: I have the latest version of WebMAN mod,

      Thanks for your answer. What could this situation be due to? I recently did full formatting of the console HDD and reinstalled the OFW, then HFW and HEN, and WebMAN Mod as the only Homebrew application. They are random freezing of the system.
    13. aldostools
      There could be different reasons (issue with plugin version, issue with webman settings, issue with PS3HEN, hardware issue, other plugins, wrong custom files, etc.).

      I would suggest you to start uninstalling webMAN, then try different versions of webMAN. e.g.,, 1.47.24, etc.

      If the problem persists, you could try reinstalling HFW and HEN too.

      Thanks for the answer, friend. What I did was to increase the amount of memory the plugin can use (from 512kb to 1280kb). So far I did not experience system freezes again when I do game scans or enter WebMAN configuration. I hope this solves my inconvenience and maybe it will help someone else. Regards!

      Has been a while since 4.85 is out so I will update from 4.84. However, latest version of webMAN is prior to 4.85 release, so, I wonder if this will represent a problem!?!?
    16. aldostools
      No, webMAN MOD will detect any future firmware version, always that the LV1/LV2 offsets remain the same. With exception of 4.80 CEX, they haven't changed since 4.75 CEX.

      Hello @aldostools

      Me voila de retour, mon ami, avec une question qui m'embarrasse fortement :
      Pourrais-tu m'expliquer pourquoi les images associées à des jeux de format PS1 (ISO dans dossier PSXISO) ne sont pas affichées (icône noir seul) quand celle-ci sont situées sur une clef USB2 (voire USB3) au format NTFS ???
      Aucun souci lorsque ces mêmes images (plus jeux associés) sont sur les mêmes clefs mais au format FAT32 cette fois-ci. Le problème ne provient pas du support, j'en suis sûr. WebMAN-mod est la révision, la dernière que tu as produit, et le HEN est le v3.0.0 mais le souci était déjà là avec un HEN moins récent. Au fait, je suis en HFW-4.85.1 sur une PS3 de modèle CECH-4204C, si cela peut t'aider.

      De plus, il faut que je te dise que cette clef est de 128Go, très rapide et que j'y ai copié aussi quelques jeux PS3 en ISO comportant eux aussi les images au format JPG pour chaque jeux.

      Merci par avance pour ton aide toujours très appréciée. Ma famille apprécie beaucoup ce que tu fais.

      Très cordialement.

      In English via Google-trad (sans garantie) :

      Here I am, my friend, with a question that embarrasses me greatly:
      Could you explain to me why images associated with PS1 format games (ISO in PSXISO folder) are not displayed (black icon only) when they are located on a USB2 key (or USB3) in NTFS format ???
      No problem when these same images (plus associated games) are on the same keys but in FAT32 format this time. The problem is not the support, I'm sure. WebMAN-mod is revision, the last one you produced, and HEN is v3.0.0 but the problem was already there with a less recent HEN. By the way, I'm in HFW-4.85.1 on a model CECH-4204C PS3, if that can help you.

      In addition, I must tell you that this key is 128GB, very fast and I have also copied some PS3 games in ISO also including images in JPG format for each game.

      Thank you in advance for your always appreciated help. My family appreciates what you do.

      Very cordially.
    19. aldostools
      Try using prepNTFS and storing the images in the folder of the ISO (PSXISO). The images should have the same name of the ISO, but with the extesion .jpg or .png (or upper case).

      Alternatively If the file name contains the game id like "[SLES-12345]" the cover can be retrieved from multiMAN's folder /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/covers_retro/psx/
