QPSPManager (also known as The PSP Manager) is an open source, free and multi-platform graphical application that has been designed from the offset to act as a PBP (.pbp) file manager for the Sony PSP gaming console.
Features at a glance
Key features include a user-friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface) that allows users to easily transfer binary files, audio and video files, as well as savegame backups from their computer to the PSP hardware. The application allows users to select custom music, video, background and icon files to use in the menu.
With QPSPManager, you will also be able to backup savegames, as well as to set a custom background image for your PSP menu using PNG, AT3 or PMF files. It can unpack PBP files and automatically extracts the background and icon files from sources, extracts the game’s name, as well as the ELF of the PBP file.
Another interesting feature is the ability to compress ISO files to the CISO format, as well as to extend CISO files to the ISO file format. In addition, it allows you to select the target directory on the PSP device and handles both ISO and CISO files, allowing you to easily copy them uncompressed or compressed to the PSP or delete them.
Under the hood and supported OSes
QPSPManager is written in the C++ programming language and uses the cross-platform Qt GUI toolkit for its graphical user interface (it requires the Qt4 packages). The software is fully compatible with all GNU/Linux distributions, as well as with the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
Availability and supported platforms
On GNU/Linux, it is available for download only as a tarball, which contains the project’s source code, allowing the user to optimize (configure and compile) the application for its computer and Linux distribution. It has been successfully tested with both 64-bit and 32-bit hardware platforms.
