[PSP] [Source code] Simple Popstation GUI v3.00 beta
05/02/2007 06:43 PM Posted by: ZiNgA BuRgA in ZB's Programs & Stuff
Well, I'm getting bored of my Simple Popstation GUI project... Erk
So I thought I'd release the source code for anyone interested.  I may
decide to add a few things later on, but for now, I think I'll take a
break from this.

Anyways, it's not exactly a public release, but it's here if anyone wants it.

The code is written in VB6.  Note that although VB6 is typically a "n00b language" the code is certainly not n00b friendly.  A few more advanced things are used, plus I'm too lazy to add comments etc.

More info is given in the readme.  Remeber, read the readme!
File can be downloaded below.  (Note that will also need the compiled package which can be found here)

Oh, and it's interesting to see how much code I've actually written :)

Hope some people find this useful!

ToungueFirmware 3.10 OE-A Released!
03/02/2007 05:20 PM Posted by: Ge64 in PSP News
Games like a Grrl Wrote:3.10 OE-A changes:
  • Change from 3.03 firmware to 3.10
    Pops improvements:
    • Assign controller ports.
    • New screenmode options
    • Black level adjustment (for darker games)
    • Volume adjustment (higher volume :P :P )
    • Also seems to have higher compatibility, as well as some PAL support.
  • 4th level of brightness (aka battery eater) can now be selected also without ac adaptor.
  • Changes in hen core:
    • Static user elf’s can now be executed in the 3.10 kernel. (this includes snes user version between other programs)
    • Tyranid’s patch (added in 3.03 OE-C) consequences was not explained very well in the changelog of 3.03 OE-C:
      • For programmers: it allows kernel modules to have user imports, making kernel programming in 3.03/3.10 less strict.
      • For users: plugins and applications that worked in 2.71 SE, but not in OE, *may* now work in 3.03OE-C and 3.10 OE-A.

    Note 1: the installer will disable all plugins to avoid incompatibilities when booting. You can enable them again in the recovery menu.

    Note 2: the plugin to load 3.02 pops won’t work anymore in 3.10 OE, due to some changes in pops modules structure (meaudio fused with popsman, idcanager/idmanager behaviour slightly changed). A new plugin for 3.10 could be written next week.

Be aware that custom icons do NOT work with it, so if it's important to ya, stick with 3.03 OE-C.

Here's where to get it: http://www.psp-hacks.com/2007/02/04/cust...-released/

As always, this stuff does carry risks of brickage, so proceed with caution, and use at yer own risk.  Read everything twice, then read it again.  Great work Dark_Alex, keep on steamrolling $ony's firmware!

 PMP Mod AVC v1.02 M-i Released
03/02/2007 01:50 AM Posted by: ZiNgA BuRgA in PSP News
If you're one of the few people like me, who prefer PMP-AVC over MP4-AVC, then this might be a nice update :P  (mainly PMP-AVC allows you to save battery and has volume/lumi boost which can come in handy)

Well, I've followed the "unofficial" updates of PMP-Mod AVC v1.02M by Madrusco, for a while, but none seemed to be great, until this one:
Verison 1.02M-I (02.02.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • fixed displaying long filenames in deleting dialog window
  • added ability to set any brightness you want (included 4th brightness level and brightness lower than the default system minimum) (can be set only in filelist, press/hold left/right)

Verison 1.02M-H (14.01.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • fixed subtitles (.srt) disappeared after 30 minutes of playing (thank you bootsector)
  • added thumbnail support (thanks to JasonV and his Mod)
  • added support for headphones/remote control and analogue pad in filelist
  • new graphics by MAK

Verison 1.02M_g (11.01.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • fixed freezing when displaying osd without inserted battery
  • fixed completing description of controls (some left)

Verison 1.02M_f (11.01.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • fixed single line subtitle limit in .sub file (now if its more than 62 chars, new line is added so subtitles are displayed correctly - no more gray strokes)
  • added extension .avc is supported and displayed in filelist
  • added basic support for analogue pad (only up/down in filelist)

Version 1.02M_e (10.01.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • fixed deleting (not disappearing dialog window)
  • added elapsed/remaining time display (press X + start)

Version 1.02M_d (09.01.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • added description of controls (press square in filelist)

Version 1.02M_c (09.01.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • added display subtitles up, when the bar is shown

Version 1.02M_b (09.01.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • added left battery life time on status bar during video play
  • added deleting only .pos file (press SELECT - O to confirm)

Version 1.02M_a (09.01.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • added time and battery on status bar during video play (audio stream and loop hided - no use for me)

Version 1.02M_ (06.01.07) tuned by madruscoe:
  • fixed file info date display (maybe only my problem cause of using xvid4psp)
  • fixed units Mb » MB etc.
  • added deleting .pmp including .sub, .srt, and .pos files
  • added actual time display (press Start button to refresh)
  • added battery status (percent) and time left

The brightness level mod should be a nice addition, as well as the other additions.

For converting to PMP-AVC, XviD4PSP and AVItoPMP are both useful converters.

 downgrader for 3.03 IS OUT!
28/01/2007 04:25 PM Posted by: michaelp in PSP News
Quote:After much work over the past few days, wee finally succeeded - wee have an easy-to-use downgrader for v3.03 PSPs!

Some ground-rules:
  • This downgrader is for v3.03 firmware only. But if you have v2.81 - v3.02, no problem - you can just upgrade to v3.03 to use the downgrader.
  • You need a copy of the unpatched GTA:Liberty City Stories UMD. No ISOs, no patched UMDs, not Vice City Stories. See here for some info on how to check if your version is patched. The most reliable way : the unpatched disks have the v2.0 firmware update on them.
  • This downgrader is intended to enable homebrew. Homebrew is NOT the same as piracy. Don't be a thieving loser - buy the games you play.
  • The downgrader will work on all current PSP hardware (TA-079 - TA-086). Patching of TA-082+ is automatic in the downgrader.
  • You downgrade at your own risk. There is always a chance of bricking, although wee have done everything wee can think of to make this process safe.

Full instructions for downgrading are included in the Downgrader_HOWTO.txt file in the ZIP file. Read them carefully! You will need:

check it out everyone... THE DOWNGRADER IS OFFICIALLY OUT!!!!!!!!!

 Custom Firmware SE/OE Easy Version Changer v5 Out Now!
28/01/2007 01:52 PM Posted by: dasme in PSP News
[Image: screen1hj4_qjpreviewth.png?215493]

Wee guess once one has hit on something golden, that one person wouldn't let go. It rings true as well for homebrew developers as wee know that they have their pet projects and all. For coder Dabomstew, his is a nifty application called Custom Firmware SE/OE Easy Version Changer.

It's a rather long name but wee're telling you, you shouldn't forget about this one as it is highly important. To those who haven't heard about this app yet, it actually allows for changing the version displayed in Custom Firmware SE/OE system settings without hex editing or manual flashing. And unlike the familiar application X-flash, this supports characters other than just 1.00-9.99.

Add to this a little imagination and some other brilliant applications and you will see your PSP customized in ways you haven't even dreamt of. And just like other homebrew apps, please be sure to browse through the accompanying readme file. Dabomstew mentioned that this one is tested and working fine for his own 3.03 OE-A and 3.02 OE-B units, but it never hurts to be always safe with the things you try on your PSPs.

Changelog for Easy Version change v5:

    * Supports all 2.71 SE versions and 3.03 OE-C
    * Automatically detects your firmware version
    * Slight layout changes

 Supermarket asks man, 87, for ID
28/01/2007 02:42 AM Posted by: dasme in Random News
Quote:An 87-year-old man was asked to prove he was over 21 when he tried to buy a bottle of sherry in a York supermarket.

The former Lord Mayor of York, Jack Archer, said he was shocked - but flattered - when asked the question by staff at Morrisons in Acomb.

He said: "I don't look my age but I certainly don't look young enough to be in trouble for underage drinking."

Morrisons said staff had to ask anyone buying alcohol to confirm they were over 21, or provide proof of age.

Mr Archer said he often had a small glass of sherry at bedtime to help him sleep.

'Best intentions'

He said: "I was taken aback really. Afterwards I thought I should have showed them my bus pass and that would have proved how old I was.

"I must admit the lady wasn't too persistent and I realised she was only doing what she's been told to do."

A Morrisons spokesman said: "This is done with the best of intentions and wee would hope it is taken in good humour by those obviously over the age of 21, as wee do not wish to cause offence and no disrespect is intended.

"Wee take our responsibility with regard to selling alcohol very seriously and all our stores operate the Task 21 scheme, which addresses the difficulties staff face in being able to determine if a customer is legally old enough to buy alcohol.

"To further limit any element of doubt, staff at the Acomb store are required to ask anyone buying alcohol to confirm that they are over 21."

Anyone who appears to be under 21 has to provide proof they are old enough to buy alcohol.
