QPSPManager reloaded! Another summer, and another QPSPManager version. This one is a major update. I've migrated all the code to version 4 of the QT Framework and I've added the long awaited video conversion feature, although it comes a bit late, it's better than nothing. Another important new feature of the program is it's multiplatform nature. Not it works in Linux, Mac OS (intel only at this moment) and Windows (with some little glitches). Also, a new forums web page has been added to centralize support, suggestions and bug reporting at Think in Geek.
It's been almost a year since the last update. The video conversion tool planned was finally desestimated at the moment but I've added some ISO/CISO compression/copy features during this summer. I hope you find it of utility. Some bugs have been fixed and some methods have been rewritten in a more elegant way.

What is QPSPManager?
Welcome to the official web page of QPSPManager, The Linux PSP File Manager
QPBPManager is a PBP File manager for Linux. It's intended to use as a user friendly GUI to the known tedious pack and unpack processes of the PSP PBP files, directory generation and further copy into the PSP, in order to execute those binary files in PSPs with firmware 1.50.
QPSPManager automates this process to make it a simple task to the end user, who will only have to select a PBP file and the PSP directory, leaving all other tasks to the program. It also provides some other cool features such as selecting custom PNG, PMF and AT3 files to use as an icon or background in the PSP menu.
QPBPManager also allows the user to backup the savegames to the computer and copy those savegames later to the PSP.
- Unpacks PBP files and selects automatically the icon and background files from the source file.
- Extracts the program name included in the PBP file and sets it as default output directory.
- Extracts the ELF of the PBP file and packs a fake PBP file without the ELF for showing in the menu of the PSP.
- Allows to select custom icon and background files to use in the menu.
- Allows to select custom video and music files to use in the menu.
- Allows to select the output directory on the PSP and the actual PSP directory, which is saved as an option for further usages, so you only have to configure it once (as long as the PSP directory does not change).
- Provides support for backup the savegames on the PSP to the computer and viceversa.
- Allows to compress ISO files to CISO files.
- Allows to expand CISO files to ISO files.
- Manages the ISO/CISO files on the PSP, allowing to delete them and copy them compressed or non compressed to the PSP.
Although QPSPManager was mainly designed only to transfer PBP files into the PSP so they can be executed through the memory stick menu, I'm thinking about new features in future versions non related to PBP file management. Some of those features include:
- Conversion and transfering of any kind of video file. It will allow to convert all kind of video files into the PSP format and transfer the files to the PSP to allow viewing them on the console.
- Conversion and transfering of any kind of audio file. It will allow to convert all kind of audio files into the PSP format (mp3) and transfer the files to the PSP to allow hearing them on the console.
QPSPManager has been developed entirely in C++ using the QT Library for the GUI and file manipulation. Although it has been primary designed to work under linux because of the lack of a user friendly program of this kind when the project was started, it should not be hard to port to other platforms because of the QT multiplatform essence. Any help on porting the program to other platforms will be greatly appreciated. See Want to help? section for details.
