90w ago - Following up on the previous releases, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer ps3hen has made available XMBM+ PKG Compiler Toolkit - a PS3 Package builder and distributer homebrew application for Windows users.
To quote: After recent efforts to "extract our work back to source" and realising how annoying it is to individually re-package of the now large collection a packages which comprises 'a release' for the XMBM+. I bring the XMBM+ Package Compiler Toolkit.
After a day of re-learning batch with my tutor google, I've finished the tool which anyone working on the XMBM+ can use to make mastering/testing much easier. The basics of what it does:
1/ Compile, rename and post to dropbox (requires access to dropbox account)
2/ Compile rename and send to a specified directory on computer
3/ Cool little other features
Anyway to save time modifying important the directories, I've taken the liberty of making them variables existing in the settings.ini. Modifying the settings.ini is necessary if you want to use this with Dropbox.
How to Use :
1/ extract the archive to 'C:\'
2/ if you are using this with dropbox or want to use different directories edit the settings.ini at 'C:\XMBMPLS\bin\'
3/ do not change the file structure inside 'C:\XMBMPLS\pkg_source\' if you do not know what you are doing
4/ run the "XMBM+ PKG Complier" short cut at 'C:\XMBMPLS\' and follow the prompts to your desire
But for actually editing the source before compiling look here:
The core package source is contained in 'C:\XMBMPLS\pkg_source\CORE_PACK\'
The theme packages' source is contained in 'C:\XMBMPLS\pkg_source\THEME_PACKS\'
The language packages' source is contained in 'C:\XMBMPLS\pkg_source\LANGUAGE_PACKS\'

If you (or someone else) can mirror it for us on a different file-sharing site that would be much appreciated, as letitbit is blocked for me and the proxies I tried were all used up for the day on downloads from that site.
