Preview: Initial support for PS3 in DISE (updated Aug 2, 2013)

I decided to make much effort to support PS3, and I'll let you know the progress I've made the recent days.

First of all, DISE will be able to encrypt saves properly using the Game Genie web service. As long as you have a valid Game Genie license installed, DISE will automatically retrieve what it needs to communicate with the Game Genie web service. What's left is integrating it into DISE.

Next, I've taken flatz' pfdtool and turned it into a reusable library (and avoided the existing GPL'd code). In combination with my own code to handle PFD/SFO, I can show you some progress with real data.

There's more work to do but I wanted to share this as soon as it was somewhat worth looking at. :)

Simplified process (and my integration progress)

The Game Genie library is pretty much finished, and so is the other PS3 stuff. Now I'm just tying it all together in DISE. :)

Using Game Genie to play modded saves on PS3

An anonymous user commented here and suggested Game Genie in addition to DISE.

Note: There's a European and US version, and I've confirmed that it allows you to play modded saves on the PS3 (Game Genie only supports Riptide at time of writing). I used the European version for the European version of Riptide.

Game Genie is not free, but it comes with a big bunch of cheats for other games as well.

Rough tutorial

First, you can use the Game-save helper tool and mod your save in DISE, then place your modded save back onto your USB drive (same as before).

Next, start up Game Genie, double-click the game to enter Quick Mode, then tick one of the cheats (e.g. Max Money). After applying the cheat, your save will be uploaded to a remote server, modded and sent back to you.

What's left is copying the save from your USB drive to the PS3 (same as before). :)
