    I've released version 1.3 of the apparently very popular application "PS3 Game Updater" (over 18,000 download in 1 week! [​IMG] ), which was blessed with lots of new features:

    Ability to download ALL updates, and not only the latest one
    Optimized FTP Scanning
    Download updates by Title ID
    Convernient file naming


    Note: You MUST have .NET framework 3.0 in order for it to work properly.
    For those who encounter crashes on startup, please extract the software,
    and replace the ExpandableGridView.dll with the one found here:

    Version 1.3
    + Major changes to the results grid.

    + You can now download all updates of a game, instead of the latest one!

    + Added downloading updates by game id (choose "Search Game ID" from the "Import From" menu)

    + Optimized the ftp lookup. Should be about 20 times faster now.

    + Added a new option in Settings: you can now choose to save the update file in its ogirinal file name, or save it as "[GAMENAME] - Version [VERSION].pkg]" for easier
    location and update ordering.

    + Added a "Donate" option in the menu. Please do [​IMG]

    Version 1.2
    + Added exporting list to csv file.

    + Fully already downloaded updated will be skipped.

    + Added FTP scan support (Experimental). Switch to "PS3 FTP" from the menu. The application will scan the directory of your choice for the games installed, and return a

    list, just like HDD scan. To edit locations of the games folder, edit the settings.ini. Edit "FTPLocations" parameter, each location seperated by a ",". Updates

    downloaded through FTP scan will be saved under the "PS3 Game Updater Updates (FTP Scan)" in the aplication directory.

    * Note: this process could take a while, depending on the amount of sub-directories of your games directory.

    + Added shortcuts:
    F1 - About
    F2 - Settings
    Ctrl+Shift+S - Export as csv

    + minor and not-so-minor bug fixes.

    Version 1.11
    + Enabled X button to close the appication.

    Version 1.1
    + Added "Settings" and "About" windows.
    Use the "Settings" window to save your last used folder, open folder after downloading all updates, and determine whether to save the updates into 1 big folder, or put

    each update in its game folder.

    + Table now shows the actualy game path as well.

    + Select/Deselect all checkbox added.

    + Added Download speed indicator.

    + Downloading now shows the version of the donwloaded update.

    + Minor GUI improvements.

    Version 1.0
    First release, only scans folder and shows details. Previously called "PS3 Game Detector".

    the download by ID is cool, but u could implement something so u can ADD IDs on a list and search them all, i had to copy the root folders with the param.sfo for the games i dont hold on my PC to download all the updates at once. But still pretty neat app.
