This tool scans for the PKG, MP4 and P3T files copied to each game folder, its PS3_UPDATE folder, PKGDIR or PS3_CONTENT,
and store them under a PS3_EXTRA structure.

When a game is mounted with multiMAN, there will be 2 BD icons on the XMB:
one disc for the game itself and another with PKGs, MP4 and P3T.

It should make it easier to install the game patches, DLC, fixes, and related videos,
due they will be listed in a neat menu like the one used by “PStore news” (big squares of 486×405 pixels).

How to use:
1) First put the pkg’s at the root of your game folder (eg: BLES00000).
2) Run Create_PS3_EXTRA.exe
3) Click the browse button in the top right corner […]

5) Now tick or untick the folders you want or don’t want the app to process
6) Click the Start button
7) Close the program
8) Open the folder eg: BLES00000 folder
9) Now your folder should contain a folder called PS3_EXTRA
10) All the pkg’s should have automatically been renamed and moved to the PS3_EXTRA folder
11) Launch the game using multiMAN
12) On the xmb menu you should now see 2 disc icon’s. The top disc icon is the actual game, The bottom disc icon is the dlc/update pkg’s.

renam 1.0

This name format should make it easier to find the games using Explorer.

Just copy the renam.exe to the x:GAMES (or x:GAMEZ) folder and rut it.

(Do not expect any GUI. It will rename the folders and exit)

That’s all for now :)
