To quote: Well guys, by popular demand here's Solar v2.0. This is a multiMAN edition and stand-alone. The app would need to be spawned by multiMAN, so it's up to Dean.
But the stand-alone will spawn multiMAN. FTP works really well, and it's very fast, but sadly only one session... lol, so use it wisely. I will fix in the future. Will add more stuff in future releases, but 1st I have to fix my setup... lol which caused my delay.
Hope you guys enjoy it, CAW!
Major memory fixes
Some resolutions and cosmetic changes
Fixed Sound loop bug
SELECT pauses the music
START resumes it. lol
X starts the FTP
And all the other buttons will launch multiMAN.

Solar v2.2 Changelog:
Fixed soft reset when exiting to xmb with PS button
Packages are now half the size, Thanks DeanK.
Ftp is a little better, can be used as many times as wanted now.
Changed animations around.
Some more code clean-up.
Note: when using FTP, you have to connect & re-connect twice to return Solar's animation, till I fix that.
