    A IRD file is a blueprint of the original disc it contains all hashes (fingerprints) of all files and knows what sectors are encrypted on the disc.
    The rip is the game you downloaded, it is ripped from the original disc. So is called a rip.

    Download this software, PS3-ISO-Rebuilder: http://www.mediafire.com/download/02e4d007g0497wl/PS3-ISO-Rebuilder.zip
    Do the following:
    First click "Open..." Then "JB (Folder)" choose the top game folder and let the game load.
    Click the blue bar on the top of the screen where it shows the Game ID, this will take you to the IRD on the 3k3y webpage if it exists.
    Then click "Load IRD (.ird)" then it should show the colored lines.

    Green means same as the original.
    White means file exist in rip but not in IRD, delete these files (these will be skipped when you build the final ISO with IRD).
    Red means file exist in IRD but not in rip, add these files from another source.
    Yellow means files exist but are not the same so are corrupt or changed, change to original.

    Make the changes to the rip and Open the JB folder again, when everything is green it will let you build the ISO with IRD, if not you can build the ISO without IRD.

    The tool will prompt you to download the PS3UPDAT.PUP file if it is missing and it will create any folder that should be there according t
    he IRD, this will make sure errors like the missing folder in Assassins Creed won't happen.
    It will also create any empty file that should exist in the rip but is missing.
    It will also create the LIC.DAT file if it's missing or wrong in the rip.

    All the thanks goes to jonnysp who created this tool and made all the changes and requests I made to create a good and better replacement for the ODE IsoCheck tool it now is a all-in-one ISO check and build tool!

    I've been working with jonnysp to create a better alternative for ODE IsoCheck and he made PS3-ISO-Rebuilder and it rocks!
    It's a faster tool and has all the features ODE IsoCheck had and then some more.
    See the first post to see the advantages of this tool.

    Just tried the new tool and it didn't prompt me to download the missing PS3UPDAT.PUP file.

    Are there any requirements for the tool to work properly?

    Edit: Never mind, I made a mistake, sorry 'bout that.

    fine! plain mode is usefull for something? i'm cobra users

    Thanks you very much for your great usefull tools!

    Does it opensource?

    Some enhancement :

    - Download from 3k3y database ird automatically if available / check IRD availability
    - Localisation languages (i'm french dev, i could help you for it)

    It's some idea from DEV to DEV ^^

    If you click the blue bar it will take you to it's website.
    It will have a ID with each download so I think you can't do it automatically.
    If you can I'd like to know as I want a database of all IRD files on 3k3y website.

    Thank you SDeath and jonnysp for this great program. I did want to let you know that the "prompt when ps3updat.pup is missing" feature does not work for me. It works great on ODE_ISOCheck, so I just use that when I'm missing the file. Just FYI. Thanks again!

    Does the PS3_UPDATE folder exist when the message doesn't show?

    I tried it both ways, with and without, with 3 different JB folders. It does create the folder, but that's it.

    Great! I just use ode_isocheck when I need it, so it's not a problem at all, but I just wanted to let you know that didn't work on my system. Thank you!

    The intention was a total replacement for ODE IsoCheck with more functionality so we need to fix this I think.
    Thanks!

    It should allow you to create one without IRD.
    Didn't it download the PS3UPDAT.PUP for you automatically?
