Earlier this month we saw a PS4Updates Python script, and recently PlayStation 4 developer @OctopusRift aka GarnetSunset (Twitter) made available a PlayStation Store DLC Index script tool called psDLCIndex which can be used to scrape / download PS4 PKG downloadable content. :D

:alert: From Al Azif, to quote: "THESE TOOLS WILL NOT WORK WITH MOST DLC. The DLC must be an unlockable type with no extra data required and may require a specific game update version. There is no way to know 100% if it'll work until you try it."

:arrow: For those having trouble, see this Workaround by Baku86 to fix the issue. :thumbup:

This comes following the tutorial for Dumping PS4 5.05 DLC, Games, Updates & Themes with details below from the to quote: psDLCIndex

PlayStation Store DLC Indexer, and list generator.

What is this?

This is a script that will go through a PlayStation store entry for a certain title, which is given at runtime, and get the titleIDS of all DLC associated with them. This can then be funnelled into "" which can parse it out and, using some outside programs, generate some cool pkgs.

How to use?

Make sure you run "requirements.bat" if you're on windows, but then, just run the "" script and input the full title ID of the app you wish to crawl. This can take a while so be patient.

When done, make sure to run mysteriouslink, with all the files required, which I can't link, in this directory. You should have a bunch of PKGs.


:arrow: Update: In related news, windsurfer1122 made available PSN_get_pkg_info which is a Python script to extract package information from header and PARAM.SFO of PS3 / PSX / PSP / PSV / PSM and PS4 packages.

PSDLCIndex PlayStation Store PS4 DLC Indexer by GarnetSunset.jpg



i fixed this issue with a simple method, (dlc with title and image like an official dlc)

1. extract the dlc file with orbis-pub-chk.exe, use the passcode: 00000000000000000000000000000000
2. Create a folder named sce_sys in the desktop and move the param.sfo file to this folder
3. download the image of the dlc from the playstation store and convert it to png as an example: icon0.png and the size is: 512x512 pixels and move it to the sce_sys folder with the param.sfo file
4. open orbis-pub-gen.exe and choose "additional content package WITH extra data" mode
5. double click on image0 and drag the sce_sys folder and close the page
6. after, command -> project setting-> the package tab and input the content-id of the dlc and in passcode (32 ): 00000000000000000000000000000000, and press ok
7. build the pkg, that's all
I have gotten as far as @Night Hawk game installed with update tells me downloading from notifications locks up when I try to run it, screen says install update. If I do it in reverse then the dlc pkg just hangs on install screen. If I switch the game to a different version get the ce-34224-5.... it wants to work and adds to downloads and says installed go to notifications and click on installed update it opens the game but no dlc.

My Questions

1. do you need to have a psn account linked prior? (may work for you if you did?)
2. the front page video shows a downloading screen with navel strike?
3. was he/she linked to a psn account?
4. was he/she on 5.05 how did they dl from the psn store if they were?
5. what dns allowed the dl in the video?

I bulit my pkgs all the different ways with cindex orig, and @stooged v2-5 app

Thanks for the great program, attempted to get the addon packs for lego dimensions but it came up as error occured, would anyone know if the addon packs are classed as DLC or is there another way to get them. Appreciate the assistance and once again thank you for another great piece of software.
nothing works for me, not the py scripts or PSDLC.

I have Python 2.7
I added the Environment Variable
I added both EXE to folder

the py script just closes immediately and psDLC gets the invalid sc.exe error
