114w ago - Today PS3 developer d0zs has released DOStoPS3, a PS3 DOSBox Port homebrew application with source code that allows users to package DOS games for the PlayStation 3 and run them on Custom Firmware followed by versions 1.1 and 1.2 below.
130w ago - Following up on his previous releases, today PlayStation 3 hacker d0zs has released two more PS3 homebrew applications dubbed Read_SFO and Read_SFO_with_Examples based off SFO4J (SFO Filereader in Java) by TiMESPLiNTER.
To quote: command line sfo reader (uses sfo4j's open source java classes converted to vb.net)
included a rough make_pkg port to batch with a couple other examples
i had a couple people ask me about modifying the order of operations for making a pkg to suite their own needs. there's nothing easier than editing a bat file, so i decided to take advantage of sfo4j's java sfo reader classes and make a quick exe that will spit out a requested value of a specified sfo file and use it in a rough make_pkg port to batch.
From the developer: This tool provides the ability to auto-compile PS3 HG based pkg's. Just a straight forward pkg builder, doesn't require cygwin, doesn't modify the eboot or param, gets the job done much quicker than my old patcher. same folder structure, drag - drop, etc.
Fixed many potential bugs, also made it intercept psn_package_npdrm's output so you can see it work.
I originally posted make_pkg because I saw Mr GoodFrag's tutorial using one of my old very poorly coded patcher to compile the pkg.
So since I had coded make_pkg for myself some months ago, I figured it could save people using that tutorial the hassle of compiling pkg's and so I went ahead and posted it.
But unfortunately, when I do post something, it's almost always buggy because I haven't thoroughly tested it for...
