These are for games with, no, pkg or rap file, and with no update if you wanted to build a package for "han" out of it, so they will not work.............They could work, but that requires a lot of image rebuilding and dumping..........very troublesome..............The games below don't work on the "ps3 ofw compatibility list", there's no update for it, and no "pkg, rap" files.

You can very well place all your ps3 games in .iso format and they will work (install the dlc and game updates to the internal harddrive)................the list below is only for the games that will not work otherwise...............I do understand, that, you can just convert the game dump into iso using the method below and play it, once again, this is about saving work time, if the game is in "pkg, rap" just install that instead. Also some games may not work without being rebuilt for "han" as a package, or as a package, with a firmware fix either released that way by someone or by yourself fixed with a patch.

Select the folder with the "ps3_game" folder inside, it will build the "game.iso", you will have one large .iso file..............in your external ntsf harddrive (MBR boot table as opposed to GPT)..........create a folder called "PS3ISO", and put your iso files in there. (use those settings for all your games) (some games require a fix like attack on titan, there are releases for that, try not to modify the iso, unless it was that way from a patch or something)

For the list, I used a "Hitachi 250GB (HDD: Z5K320-250), 5400 RPM, 2.5 inch hdd, external drive, it does not use an external power supply, it just plugs into the ps3 port, I have it plugged into the left most port but shouldn't matter. I used "paragon partition manager 15 professional", to format the drive to NTSF, (cluster size 8kb default (i didn't use the OS routine, option but shouldn't be important).........for a much larger drive you need to use a larger cluster size, google it).................it is in MBR boot table format..................1tb internal, Seagate Drive external, hitachi, should work find, also I have a 500 gig internal western digital for ps3 2.5.............I can verify those drives work.

https://gbatemp.net/threads/superslim-ps3-4-86-hfw-backups-upgrading-or-new-install.577902/ ............thats the guide for installing HFW, same guide will work on superslim, slim, and other ps3.

Compatibility List - using "webman"
(enable HEN from the ICON, then option will show in your game list (webMAN), select "webMAN Games", then your "PLAYSTATION3" folder, select game it will launch the .iso file on the external drive, you can use the same drive on different PS3 units with the .iso on them, if you have friends........ like the guide says in the previous thread (select "webMAN Setup", then "Prepare NTSF Drives 1.17", your ps3 will do a soft reset, and it can now read the games on your external drive, you have to first install "prepNTFS 1.17" like the guide says..........don't enable hen after the soft reset just select your game from webman............in the future after you turn on your ps3 just select "enable hen" then select your game from webman)

(did a compatibility list for han, almost same results as official "cfw 2 ofw list"........try .iso instead of game fix or use game fix and build the package instead) (you don't need to unload any images, just select the next game you want to play from webman, after quitting the one you were playing with)


*** = Quiting Game (holding down ps button option) and Loading a New One Works no Issues
QQQ = ps3 shuts down after quitting game, press 0 to cancel file system check after startup

Armored Core 4 (BLUS30027) - Works (game idles at black screen 1 to 2 minutes before game starts, with no problems) ***

Legendary (BLES00405) - Freezes at 100% Checking Required Game Data on Startup
Legendary (BLES00405) FIX - (include the update folder when you build the .iso (the folder is empty)..........reduce "webMan" to minimum memory from settings, game will remain at 100% Screen for about 2 (to 4) minutes before, installing game data) - Works

Lollipop Chainsaw (BLUS30917) - Works ***
MotorStorm (BCUS98137) - Works ***

(Before you use the "ps button" to "quit" the game, try to exit to the main menu of that game, the games usually clear the memory when you do that, that should stop the ps3 from shutting down for the few games that might do that when you exit from it)

(in the webman Setup, scroll down using the bar on the right side, the "IDPS $ MEM Setup", just change that to "Plugin memory usage 320KB", save and power cycle your ps3)

(the game "INVERSION", no longer crashed the ps3 when going to the game's main menu first before using the "quit" option from the ps button, on your controller)

DLC/UPDATE test,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I don't know, susposedly you just install the packages for it, on your internal drive and the .iso game will pick that up when it runs, will see later

DLC Test (DLC/UPDATE packages install to internal hdd, the external hdd iso games read) - Some Quick Notes on Other Games installed with Hen

(this is already stated in the tutorial package, in the link near the top) (install, PKG_Linker_V2.0_Installer, to pc, set up your pc and ps3 network addresses, make sure other devices on your router are not using those addresses..............add the .pkg files you want to install into that folder, add the "Package_List.pkg" file to your fat32 usb stick 16gb or smaller.............on the ps3 "enable hen from icon", install the package then restart the ps3............NEXT.............use the option from HAN TOOLBOX to install package from webserver, and install your packages)

(I'm Testing Now Weather or not you need to install .RAP files, with HEN, "PKG Linker" does,NOT, list .rap files, you have to turn that into a .pkg file using, PS3xploit-resigner-3.0.0.............then I'll have to test if you need to use the act/idps files for the hdd signed to it, with HEN and HFW firmware, most users report you don't have to resign then with "act/idps" from that hdd, the internet is not really clear about that)

(The Working Method is, ".pkg and .rap" file, into "PS3xploit-resigner-3.0.0", for the game, with your act/idps files from your internal harddrive, then two packages/.pkg files are created you install and works. DLC and Updates don't resign, unless in the rare case the dlc also has a rap file........................using HEN, (before was only han firmware update for original firmware)................the claim is that you don't need "rap" files or to "resign" game "pkg and rap" files into package files.................so some false information is floating around I'll just test this out (not using file managers here or FTP, not installing files in a non-standard way, this is regarding package files only))

(install order, game package, update package, dlc package. dlc fix package, license package or fix package...............if the game was a psn release, just use the update option from the ps3, if backup package, you build that with the update, not using install option)


Installation Test

Cars2 Unsigned PSN Package + .RAP file Package signed with act/idps from (internal hdd) "PS3xploit-Resigner" (difference is not signing the game package) = Worked (this is for NOPAYSTATION, or any ".pkg .rap", game install, you do save time, not having to sign the game package with HEN) (reactpsn doesn't work with hfw/hen, so you have to still resign the rap file)

Attack on Titan NPEB02365 psn package + "Hen Game Fix Package, Game to 3.55 firmware patch" (both unsigned packages) = Worked (finally worked, dlc was included in that pack)

Class of Heroes 2.pkg (NPUB31541) + 3.55 Fix (both unsigned packages) = Works

Alien Rage (NPEB01088), game pkg and fix pkg (both unsigned packages) = Works

(don't need to resign, a game back made to .pkg, or a backup .pkg, specifically made for "hen" as a release) (apparently just the .rap files for nopaystation/psn releases ".pkg and .rap", with .rap built into package)

DLC Test Install to Internal HDD for External HDD with .iso on it
(for same games listed as .iso previously)

Fist of North Star Ken's Rage ALL DLC FIX, pkg install = Works
Sonic the Hedgehog ALL DLC FIX, pkg install = Works
Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, pkg install = Have to Play Further in Game, probably works
Lollipop Chainsaw, pkg install = Have to Play Further in Game, probably works


That's It! ("COO" games timed trials to full games, like "marvel vs capcom 2", theres packages for them, you can even edit your backups)

(Several Updates have took place...........only installed, 4.86 HFW, HEN, han and han toolbox, multiman, webMAN, and prepNTFS)

(Those are all new installations on the harddrive, never installed anything past just 4.82 han firmware previously... ... ... ... the ntsf format and external harddrive using .iso games, reportedly fixes freezing issues)

Well, if the game has a ".pkg and .rap" file, it was a PSN release, with no physical release............just install the package file and rap file, using "PKG_Linker_V2.0_Installer". Rebuilding the game image for another installation method because you can is probably not a good idea, clearly that is true.

I don't see a need to transfer, loose game files to any partitions on the internal drive, either install ".pkg and .rap"...or use external drive with .iso, I use both methods.

Best thing to do is try again, wipe your internal harddrive, (google, you can try to delete the files from the previous installations, for, webman, multiman, since they have file browsers haven't tried that)...........you can go from "CFW" to "HFW", "HFW and HEN" seems to work fine for many users, versus, "CFW and HEN"................if your doing nothing fancy why not.

I do have ps2 games installed using the ps2 classic gui, those are signed with the resigner program............only really concerned with PS3 games.
...........
...........

...........
Just have to resign the RAP file, if ".pkg and .rap", game install. Does Save a Lot of Time, unless "reactpsn" get updated to use "hfw and hen", then you could just install .rap file from usb stick................unless I'm wrong about having to resign the .RAP file, which I don't think I am.

pny 500gb ssd from walmart (about 48$)
(SSD7CS900-500KIT-RB ..... near barcode on bottom)
(SSD external uses even less power, hard to imagine that, its connect via, the usb plug to ps3, no additional power source)

Seems to work no problems............i have 1 TB internal seagate drive, no need external that much size. (paragon partition manager, 8kb cluster size)...............I will test a few more games out. Same format as before, NTSF..................Can't report if using a larger drive size, and therefore larger cluster size, result in game reading problems or installing more then 100 or so .iso to a harddrive results in problem.)

1TB Harddrives, don't have the special ram buffers larger drive sizes have, that may be an issue, you may be good with 1TB external, again just exceeds my interests. (some users report 2TB external drives working on ps3, but, I have a 2TB external drive for the PC, and not all of those 2TB or greater drives are problem free, in being identified ............. so you take a risk, of not being able to use the drive, or being limited to how many games you can install to ti before the ps3 can't identify them.................500gb just for what i'm doing, since everything else works in packages psn format, no real need.

(.iso in "PS3ISO" folder in NTSF (MBR) format external hdd) (using webman same as before)

Aliens Colonial Marines (BCUS30862) (Installs Game Data) = Works
Baja Edge of Control (BLES00359) = Works

Dungeon Siege III (BLES01161) (removed all multi-language files from game before making .iso, also from the 1.03 update.pkg and DLC.pkg and dlc_fix.pkg, using "ps3tools, and to rebuild those packages) = Works
(multi-language files removed from game, and, update/dlc to prevent language change after installing them......update/dlc results will be in that section below)

Enchanged Arms (BLES00049) = Works
Killzone 3 (BCUS98234) = Works
MotorStorm Complete (BCES00006) = Works
Never Dead = (BLUS30654) = Works (loads for about 1 to 2 mins after startup)

Risen 3 (BLUS31432) (installs game data) = Works
Sacred 2 - Fallen Angel (BLUS30312) = Works

Silent Hill Homecoming (BLES00460) = Works
Skyrim Legendary Edition (BLUS31202) (had patch fix for two "param.sfo" files) = Works
Sonic and Sega All Star Racing (BLES00750) =
Sonic Generations (BLES01236) = Works
Spec Ops the Line (BLES01157) =
Syndicate (BLUS30804) = Works
The Incredible Hulk (BLES00460) = Works
The Tomb Raider Trilogy (BLES01195) = Works
Turning Point Fall of Liberty (BLUS30119) (English Version Not Censored) = Works
Two Worlds II (BLUS30550) (installs game data) = Works
Wolfenstein the New Order (BLES01909) (Black Screen for about 1-2 min, then install data) = Works


(some games like oblivion/skyrim/baja edge of control/tomb raider/fallout ........... benefit from SSD drive, because of the way assets are loaded, (google)), (the issue with "aliens colonial marines", gun textures loading slowly seems fixed...........on external ssd, versus, internal non-ssd hdd) (that reminds me, bayonetta, had similar issues)

UPDATE/DLC Test (package files installed to internal hdd, for external hdd .iso games)

Aliens Colonial Marines, dlc and update (dlc and dlc fix works, server update 1.05 doesn't work) = Works
Dungeon Siege, dlc and update (all multi-language files removed, repacked, ps3 tools) = Works (installing DLCandDLC FIX, still results in changing text infos to russian) (delete, game data, from xmb/ps3 menu option for dungeon seige........install just the 1.03 update, walking in game is less frame skippy)
Two Worlds 2, updates only = Works
Kill zone 3 update only = Works (update 1.14, option to disable motion sensor/controls in, wireless controller options) (I'm using a wired, rock candy, controller it does work)
MotorStorm Complete (ALL DLC PACK FIX BCUS98137, the USRDIR, taken from that and added to EMPTY FOLDER BCES00006 FIX for DLC) = Works (check wreckstation, for new modes, or check some added vehicles)
Sacred 2, update only = Works
Silent Hill Down Pour, update only = Works
Sonic Generations, dlc and update = Works (casino night dlc)
..............
..............
..............
(unless the game displays the update on title screen or something, most games don't, or there is a specific change................so the assumption is that the update is otherwise working)
...............
...............
...............

Finished...........there's a lot of very bad games, .I wouldn't touch even if they were free.........
