Well we are now in the month of September, after having a blast of 'scene' fire during August, so what better way to start off the new month, by releasing another great 'little utility' for all those that converted their PS3 consoles over to DEX mode.
This one is from scene developer 'andbey0nd' along with help from aldostools, and makes DEX machines even more useful as you can now use PS3 Generator without the need of setting up all the those weird confusing options, so even noobies now can transfer games like 'Sleeping Dogs' over to your USB HDD that has been re-formatted for DEX-only usage.
Here is the 'readme' from the little utility called genGP3:
Usage: genGP3.exe GAME_FOLDER [output.gp3]
Example: genGP3.exe x:\GAMES\FUNNY_GAME\PS3_GAME
Drag and drop your game PS3_GAME folder to genGP3.exe
Use command prompt or drag & drop a PS3 game folder to genGP3.exe
It will create a .gp3 XML project file for PS3 Generator Tools
Use Generator tools to create a MasterDisc or BDEMU image (iso/emu)
Here is example output of the app when PS3_GAME folder of 'Sleeping Dogs' was drag&dropped to 'genPS3.exe':
Gathering data for [BLES01661 - Sleeping Dogs]...
Project data size: 7.2 GB
Project written to: H:\GAMES\BLES01661-[Sleeping Dogs]\BLES01661.gp3
In most cases, it only takes about 1 to 2 seconds to complete the operation, you then use this file in 'PS3 Generator'.
Remember still only newer games which have 'retail updates' on the Sony servers can be played on DEX, this tool just makes using PS3 Generator easier. -- Enjoy
