To quote: Hi guys, Happy New Year 2012. sorry for the delay on Solar updates, been very busy with work and the site, so here you go. Solar v2.5.

Changelog:

  • Improvements and additions to MP3 player.
  • Added MP3's names.
  • Added Volume control.
  • Added fast forward and reverse.
  • Added continuous titles playback.
  • Added Dynamic MP3 names effects for each of the 3 current scenes.
  • Added Dynamic background Effects.
  • Added Atmospheric lighting effect, gives dimension effect specially in scene#1.
  • Increased particles effects and trajectories.

  • Added controller vibration.
  • Added other minor graphics changes, and many thing I can't remember now... lol

I'll try to come up with faster updates in the future... Improve the MP3 player GUI, cleanup the code some more, will add a feature that is present but turned off, which is to be able to move the planets and ships manually and maybe add newsfeeds or something and also plug some memory leaks.

Definitely sad to see ya go condorstrike, and yea I've given up on it about a year ago myself but with summer coming (it's actually 80+ degrees here today) my guess is even if anything new on the free PS3 homebrew scene surfaces most people will be too busy outdoors to care much anyway.

Long gone are the days when most PS3 Devs believed in open source and were not out for profit in the hands of the nefarious Max Louarn / Paul Owen et al regimes. As the popular saying goes now though, it is what it is.

On a brighter note, hope to see ya back for the PS4 scene and take care!

I would just like to say I'm through with the PS3 scene, I hope everyone the best. good bye... CAW!

I would also like to thank the site, and you Boss... you were always nice to me.

I'll still be around working on other things, and in Tortuga working on Vita, Xbox... whatever, it depends, but not on the PS3.
I can't stand what the scene has become and the way real devs are treated.

I don't mean on this site, I mean in general.
