How to Join & Split With MultiMAN


MultiMAN is a homebrew for PS3 used to manage games and back up data on your PS3. Furthermore, it can check for game updates and act as a Web browser, used to download game demos. PlayStation 3 recognizes only FAT32-formatted external storage devices, and FAT32 supports files up to 4 gigabytes in size. If you have games larger than 4GB, you must use MultiMAN to split the game into parts on your computer. When you connect the FAT32 storage device to the PS3 and launch the game, MultiMAN automatically joins the parts and caches the game on PS3's internal hard disk.

Things You'll Need

  • FAT32 USB storage device
  • Plug the FAT32 USB storage device in one of your computer's free USB ports.

  • Go to the "Start" menu and click "Computer" to start the default file manager.

  • Navigate to the folder where you extracted MultiMAN. If you deleted the folder, extract the MultiMAN archive again.

  • Double-click the "Split4G.exe" file to open the File Splitter tool.

  • Click once in the "Source game folder" box to open the file browser. Select the folder containing your game.

  • Click once in the "Destination game folder" box to open the file manager. Select the FAT32 USB storage device drive.

  • Click the "Format" drop-down box and select the "filename.666##" format.

  • Click the "Start" button, and the game is automatically split into smaller parts and saved on the USB storage device.

  • Disconnect the FAT32 USB storage device from your computer.

  • Turn on your PlayStation 3, launch MultiMAN and go to the Settings menu.

  • Set the "BD-ROM Emulator" option to "Hermes (Syscall8)" and set the "Verify USB Games" option to "Always" or "Auto," depending on which version or MultiMAN you're using.

  • Reboot the PS3. This is mandatory.

  • Connect the FAT32 USB storage device to the PS3.

  • Launch MultiMAN again and launch the game from the storage device. MultiMAN automatically joins the parts, reconstructs the game on the PS3's internal hard disk and launches the game.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can join and reconstruct up to 10 games.
  • If the internal HDD doesn't have enough space, MultiMAN deletes the old cached games.
