73w ago - Shortly following his last release, today PlayStation 3 developer PsDev has now updated PS3Tools GUI Edition to version 3.0 which now adds PS3 SPU emulation, SELF decryption and Debug PKG decryption as detailed below.
To quote: Hi everyone, here with a new update to my program. Added SPU Emulation, Self Decryption and debug pkg decryption. Along with more accurate loading bars and a interface change to pkg tool, spu emulation, self decryption, edat tool.
SPU emulation added
Debug PKG decryption added
SELF decryption added
Logging Errors/successes added to EDAT tool
Logging Errors/succession added to PKG tool
Loading bars code adjustment, more accurate now
Originally by KDSBest, SPU emulation has been incorporated in my GUI. It was quite easy, we both coded our programs in C# (Sharp) so I didn't really have much trouble.
Self decryption is know possible. Just browse for your self/bin file...
From his blog, to quote: This will be the third time I have made this game (remade not just ported), and I have become exceedingly efficient at it. It is however the first time it is on PS3 and it’s back to being in 3D (though for the time being it isn’t rendering 100% correctly like it is in the above screenshot) so huzzah for that.
UFO Racer, as the self-explanatory title suggests, is a racing game involving extra terrestrials in hovering/flying vehicles. Some stats are displayed on screen showing how much of the looping track you have finished, how many times you have completed a lap and what the shortest amount of time you have done so in has been.
Use the analog stick(s) to control the ship.
I’ll be updating, fixing up and improving it as soon as I get the time but I’m really trying to get some other things done before the end of the month so I’ll be busy...
The OpenPS3FTP changes are detailed below as follows:
