96w 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:
And all the other buttons will launch the app it's attached to, in this case Rogero Manager.
3D and 2D playback.
3 stable screens timed to eliminate screen burns.
This version works with Rogero Manager.
Ftp, ....still doesn't work right, so I'll leave it for a future update.
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.
