The first version of the 04.20 series of multiMAN has arrived. With testing of the new mM payload gone well, deank has decided to release it to the public that is the gamers out there. With the new payload, multiMAN is now independent, which means it can easily be ported to other firmwares in the future. (Come the release of 05.00.00) In Addition, there are two new features for users to take advantage of.
Introducing the new mM payload which makes mM independent and easy to port for various firmwares
- Supports only 3.55 CEX/DEX, 4.21 CEX/DEX, 4.30 CEX, 4.31 CEX
- BD-ROM Emulator option in Settings can be set to “Enable / Disable” – no more “Hermes”/”Standard”
- Compatibility-wise it is better than “Standard” and “Hermes”.
- This payload overwrites 252 bytes of strings in LV2 memory (and not 4000 bytes of code like other payloads), it doesn’t use syscalls and doesn’t rely on firmware functions, executes fast and improves performance
- Added option in settings “Redirect /app_home”:
- Disable (/app_home will not be mounted at all)
- Enable (/app_home as used in previous versions – points to the game – for disc-less)
- Toolbox (on Rogero firmwares with pre-installed toolbox if you play from discs only – it allows you to return to stealthMAN without restart)
- For 3.55DEX and 4.21DEX mM now supports split-games, adds better disc-less compatibility and also allows loading of PS1 backups in BIN+CUE format from internal/external.
- IMPROVED DISC-LESS COMPATIBILITY: The new payload allows for some tweaks and there is 80% chance that games that didn’t work disc-less will now work.
As always, you can grab the latest version of multiMAN from within the backup manager itself or by downloading it manually below.
