164w ago - Today French site Logic-Sunrise.com (linked above) reports that an online compiling utility known as PSGroove Maker v0.1 is now available HERE for those seeking to make their own PSGroove hex code files.
To quote, roughly translated: "In fact you've probably faced the problem of compiling PSgroove for your development board or the difficulty of finding the version that suits you.
This period seems to be over with PSgroove Maker Online. You'll understand as you can compile your convenience of a hex PSgroove for your development board.
Simply choose your version of PSgroove (Hermes V4 waninkoko ...), your chip, frequency and options LEDs.
For now only the bases AT90 chips (USB1286/1287/162/646/647) and Atmel (USB16U2/16U4/32U2/32U4) are supported... hope that the compatibility list extended."
It's not English, but you can use google translate and it's easy enough to understand.

That is a very good point as well... the blind leading the blind if clueless people use online apps like that and then distribute their hex codes all over thinking they are valid when they aren't, with no support or even knowing who made it.
Sites like that serve their purpose for those who prefer using them so I do see value in it, but it's also a bit riskier in assuming their content is untampered with/safe to install in devices not knowing the authors individually.
Just one more reason I prefer the personal approach, if it's an "evilsperm" hex code knowing that if I had an issue I have someone to turn to who knows what they are doing first-hand and can usually assist and remedy it is great peace of mind.
Usually myself or some other people here release hex's within minutes of a new release. I like the idea of this site to config your own hex's but I see it will be a huge downfall to the nubs who no nothing at all about their board!
I can already see this thread filling up with 9 million post on what their led settings should be. Just stick with the releases from everyone on this site and you cant go wrong, at least you'll know that more then likely it was tested before being released and even if it wasn't it would make it very easy to track the issue.
If someone makes their own hex from that site and muffes it up and cant run psgroove or play backups I doubt highly that person who made the hex has a clue on whats going on then in turn post it here and some other nub is going download it thinking its a good hex perpetuating the cycle of nubs
