Update!! 9/3/12Well 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

kids are cool. boys are like ps3s. lots of fun until u have to pay for what they did with their dongle. girls are like 360s. lots of fun until u find the rrod in the toilet one day ~gaaraofdadesert
Cool. Hope someday to see that you just have to drag and drop the game folder, without the need of creating the image.
Bold above is another drawback still. You can't have any other stuff on your HDD. Strictly for DEX usage only!so even noobies now can transfer games like 'Sleeping Dogs' over to your USB HDD that has been re-formatted for DEX-only usage.
Again, yet another drawback. Games are required to have updates & right now fake updates or anything else tried doesn't work. Hopefully more advancements will come along for DEX. I still don't have a big need in updating to DEX. Maybe later but not now! Thanks!Remember still only newer games which have 'retail updates' on the Sony servers can be played on DEX,
If You Have 500GB USB Drive It Will Take Only 180GB Space and the rest space you can use for backup game that can launched by multiman
how can you do that?? if i remember correctly when i formatted a 500gb ext HD i took all the space.. well it don't show on my pc as HD so i assume all was taken

1.2.Extract the rar to C:genGP3 (it should be that path!!!)Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00Create a new text file with the following content and save it as “Associate genGP3 to Folders.reg”
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshellGenerate PS3Gen Project...]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshellGenerate PS3Gen Project...command]
3. Double click on “Associate genGP3 to Folders.reg”
Now you will be able to create the .gp3 file in 1 second just right-clicking on the PS3_GAME folder
To remove the association, create a text file with the following content and save it as “Associate genGP3.reg” and double click on it.
