Video: Solar PS3 Homebrew 3D Screensaver by Condorstrike out


139w ago - Hi guys, Condorstrike is back in action and now released Solar. A beautiful PS3 3D screensaver for PlayStation 3 homebrew apps with effects, sound and work in progress FTP. Main reason I made this is to have something nice looking and to prevent burned-screens.

This version spawns Rogero's manager, he will update the manager later to Spawn Solar, but I intend to make one for any other app eg: showtime or whatever as long as they have a proper SELF and coded to spawn with a timer to Solar.

You can follow my progress and updates in Tortuga-Cove.com or here, even though this is a MM thread, lol.. Hijacked. CAW!

Check the usage, changelog, download link and video below:

Download: Solar V1 Multifunctional Homebrew Screensaver with 3D Support

Usage:

  • SELECT pauses the music
  • START resumes it. lol
  • L3 respawns Solar
  • And all the other buttons will launch the app it's attached to, in this case Rogero Manager.

Changelog:

  • 3D and 2D playback.
  • 3 stable screens timed to eliminate screen burns.
  • Mp3 playback.
  • Dynamic effects.
  • This version works with Rogero Manager.

Future Updates:

  • Ftp, ....still doesn't work right, so I'll leave it for a future update.
  • More screens.
  • More Dynamic effects, eg: asteroid hitting a planet.
  • Comets, well that already works but too late to add it.
  • User MP3 playback by drag/drop to CNDR00001 directory.

yeah, I get bored and always end up back to coding or photoshop, and since all I see is Eboot this and dongle that, I said let me throw a homebrew wrench in the PS3 scene.

Following up on my previous release, this weekend I have updated the Solar PS3 homebrew 3D screensaver to version 4.2 with the changes outlined below.

Download: Solar 4.2 Standalone / Solar 4.2 Rogero Edition / Solar_v4.2_CFW4.XX PKG

To quote: Hi guys, Here's another update, Solar v4.2.

Even though I took a little break, I'm back with a new Solar update; added a bunch of stuff this time around, most of them are in the changelog. There's two versions, stand-alone and Rogero Manager's. For Rogero Manager both PKGs need to be installed.

1. Solar.pkg
2. Solar_RELOAD_RM.pkg

After installed it can be launched from XMB or automatically while Rogero Manager idles. Hope you enjoy it, thanks. CAW!

Changelog Solar v4.2:

  • Rebuilt the 3D engine.
  • Added more items to UI interface.
  • Added memory counter.
  • Added FPS (frames per second).
  • Added better light engine.
  • Added a 2 hours counter for system turn off.
  • Added ICON1.PAM (animated icon).
  • Added an intro loading screen.
  • Added Solar system trivia.
  • Added some minor MP3 player tweaks.
  • Created 2 version (stand-alone/multiMAN & Rogero Manager built in "automatic launching").
  • And a lot more stuff, I should write them down as I go... lol

Update: Solar 4.2 for CFW 3.55-4.XX by Condorstrike:
