    Hello

    Recently been back on the scene and i'm now using 6.20TN-D. Its a pspgo with said firmware and and prometheus iso loader. All my games (copied from CFW psp 2k) are all in a muddle and look really untidy.

    I've recently tried out this plugin called aLoader, it works however it makes everything more messier. Is there a plugin that can sort out my iso folder on the XMB but put it A-Z?

    I have googled so unless i didn't google right (which i'm sure i haven't).

    Thanks for the help

    EDIT: All my games are in ISO format if that helps

    Looking at the order of my games, it seems to put them in there by date, not by title.

    Not sure if there is a way to change how the XMB orders it personally. Don't really mind that much either, as if I get an older title, I'll know exactly where it is. [​IMG]

    The PSP file manager 'Filer' has the ability to re-order the XMB icons.
    Just load it up and press triangle or start (I forget which) and choose the right option.

    Download it here: here.

    He's talking about the order of the games, not the XMB icons.

    ie: Once you go into the game section of the XMB and enter the game list.

    Simplest method is just to use PSP Content Manager. An easy PC application that you can use to sort things to your hearts content.

    Thanks. It does what you said.. had to fiddle for 20 mins to catch what the functions did. However, I was asking for if there is a plugin that will sort out the games in my XMB section from my ISO folder. so for instance. BOF3, Crisis core, Dissidia12 and so on. They're all iso files and just wanted to know if there was a plugin that will sort the ISO folder Games for me

    Using the Filer program for the PSP will do exactly what PSP Content Manager does on the PC, except you can do is straight from the PSP.

    Right... Tried Filer and can't seem to get it to work the way i want it.. Also too complicated and tried 1-2 hours trying to figure how to do it....

    Now using the PRO CFW with perma patch... All iso's work brilliantly on the xmb so i don't need that plugin anymore...

    NEW PROBLEM- all the ISO's appear at the bottom and will not reorder regardless of using that PSPCM (Thanks xist, not doing it now but did it before and everything else with it works a treat).. Everything else in the GAME folder reorders and new ISO's appear at top..

    Any help on this?

    2 hours? Dang you're dedicated!
    (by the way you just press TRIANGLE then left analog)

    As for PSP Content Manager, make sure you press the Apply button after sorting.

    It works on PRO-B4? Mine wouldn't, so I switched to game_categories_light.prx, but it's slowww, I'm looking for a replacement.

    I dunno, I'm waiting for Pro-C cause I'm too lazy to update and possibly face save issues, which then means i have to search on how to utilize Magic Save 3.5, then I have to fix all my saves, etc.
