Download: PS3 Animated Theme Creator v1.01 / PS3 Animated Theme Creator v1.20

To quote, roughly translated: Hi, Today I spoke to one of your members winch03200 and he gave me an idea.

Seeing the difficulty of people to create animated themes so I decided to create a small program (which will get better) is to quickly create file "raf" to integrate with your theme.

You need 7 files you can find in the SDK 3.41 from Sony:

  • raf_compiler.exe
  • raf_geom.exe
  • raf_anim.exe
  • raf_script.exe
  • raf_pack.exe
  • raf_compiler.inf

A Peek Inside a Dynamic / Animated PS3 Theme

240w ago - Today SKFU has shared his findings when peeking inside one of the new Dynamic / Animated PS3 Themes that have recently been introduced in PS3 Firmware 3.0.

To quote: "A quick look at the new animated themes shows that they are not really different to the common themes. I just downloaded the free theme from the Japanese store and decrypted the HDD again to see what is inside the package file. Well, it is:

1. JP9000-NPJQ00006_00-0000000000000000.p3t.edat

You see a normal .p3t file which is the same type of data, the old themes use. It is just encrypted as .edat file which is decrypted and installed on the PS3 on the fly after downloading it.

2. PS3LOGO.DAT

The default picture you see in any game when you press triangle - information about the game.

That's all. Wondering if there will be a homebrew program to develop your own animated themes soon, or even a SONY tool like the one for the old themes?!"

One of the new features included is animated themes, but at first glance none are available. Keep looking, as there is already a free Afrika Dynamic PS3 Theme available in the Japanese PSN Store as of right now.

Excluding the free one above, the first regular Dynamic / Animated PS3 Theme costs a premium price of $2.99. Available right now in the PlayStation Store, you can download the LittleBigPlanet animated theme that was shown when PS3 Firmware 3.0 debuted.
