Yes it is safe, no it is not for phishing account details. I put it on GitHub for a reason,
PSDLE does not and will not ask for your login credentials, as they are not needed to function, but does require an account to be signed in.
When signed in, an account's Entitlement (game) data is available and used to generate the list.
Can I select which specific console I send items to for the download queue?
Seemingly no. It appears any number of consoles share the same download queue so it's based on whichever checks it first.
Sending items to the download queue is failing, despite working (minutes) before?
Your connection to the store most likely timed out, refreshing the page and running PSDLE again should solve this.
If the system is failing to start downloading, ensure you're signed in (or sign in again) or try rebooting it.
If it's still not working, then submit an issue.
Where are all the cool features like PS1/PS2 games, categories, background screenshots, etc.?
Enable "Catalog" during startup to obtain additional information about each game.
Keep in mind this increases the time to generate the list, relative to the amount of items on your list.
What all can I do with the search options?
- Search by name, ID, Publisher, and more.
- Get auto-complete suggestions to find things faster.
- Filter by system.
- If Catalog is enabled, Classics inherit their original system (like PS1).
- Filter by categories (avatar, demo, etc) if Catalog is enabled.
- Use regular expressions (regex).
- Wrap the search string in / like normal.
- Use the custom /d modifier to exclude/invert matches.
Does this differentiate between Vita and PS/Vita TV games?
At the time of writing PSDLE can attempt to detect PS TV content for en-us only
The option will only show up if using the en-us
web store, which accepts only en-us
This is a limitation of the web store, not PSDLE.
If detected, "TV" will appear next to content's platform.
Is PSDLE meant to compete with or replace the Download List?
It may appear to be a competitor or replacement due to its features. However, I see it as more of a supplement.
While the Download List may have shortcomings, I'm sure those who can officially provide a solution know and do not need to be reminded, told they "do not care", or told how their current product does not live up to PSDLE. Thank them for their awesome work instead, they do it for a living!
The Download List is a great thing to have, PSDLE simply makes it better!
At the bare minimum, PSDLE intends to maintain parity with the download list and interact as expected with the PS4, PS3, and Vita first.
After that is done, pile on additional features (like powerful searching) to expedite those interactions.
What does PSDLE stand for?
Can I write an article about/share/print out and marry PSDLE?
