Sponsored Links
218w ago - Today Lachrymose3 has released a homebrew game called PS3Pong v0.1 and stadicon has made available a PSN Demo Installer which lets you install them to your PlayStation 3 via FTP after they are downloaded to your PC.

Download: PS3Pong v0.1 Homebrew Game / PSN Demo Installer / PS3Pong v0.15 with SRC Code / PS3Pong v2 with SRC Code

From the ReadMe Files, to quote:

I give you the first Homebrew game for native GameOS. I coded it in about 12 hours. It's not very good and I ran into some problems. Fixed soon!

• Controls: Up / down - Move
• Cross - Pause (not working)
• Bugs: Must do a hard reset on exit. Probably an easy fix.
• Next Release: 2 player!

PSN Demo Installer Features:

• Create .pdb files
• Upload files to your PS3 through FTP

Requirements:

• .Net Framework 2.0
• PS3 FTP Server

Instructions: You can use this tool in 2 ways:

1) Create .pdb files and upload them with an external FTP Client (e.g. Filezilla)
2) Let the tool create and upload everything directly to your PS3

1) CREATE .PDBs

1) Open PSN Demo Installer
2) Press "Select PKG" button to complete the correct Content ID and Package File name (you can just type them manually but it is strongly recommended you get them from the PKG)
3) Type Package Name (the name of the demo as shown on XMB before installation)
4) Pick a Task Folder number (according to that, you should pick the final destination folder on your PS3)
5) Press "Create .pdb" and pick a folder. There will be 3 files created: d0.pdb, d1.pdb, f0.pdb.
6) Use an external FTP Client (e.g. Filezilla) to transfer those 3 files and the .pkg through PS3 FTP Server in /dev_hdd0/vsh/task/0000000x (x = the Task Folder property you picked before).
7) When files are moved to PS3, simply restart your console (without PSJailbreak/PSGroove/PSFreedom) and there will be an option for your demo installation on the XMB. Go on and install it!

2) CREATE AND UPLOAD FILES

1) Open PSN Demo Installer
2) Press "Select PKG" button to complete the correct Content ID and Package File name
3) Type Package Name (the name of the demo as shown on XMB before installation)
4) Pick a Task Folder number (you can leave it at 1 and the uploader will automatically adjust it)
5) Press "Upload Files" and the FTP Dialog will show up
6) Fill your PS3 IP Address. Before you go on, make sure your PS3 FTP Server is up and running
7) Press the "Upload" button. Wait for the files to be transfered.
8) When files are succesfully transfered (check the logs), restart your PS3 (without PSJailbreak/PSGroove/PSFreedom) and there will be an option for your demo installation on the XMB. Go on and install it!

WARNING: The "Create and Upload Files" option is easier to use, but the FTP library implemented in the application is not as fast as a dedicated FTP Client, like Filezilla. You may experience long wait times or, even, failures on PKGs with large sizes (1GB+) -due to PS3 FTP Server being extremely buggy.
