Below are some Tweets from KaKaRoToKS, as follows:

I've got some *great* news for homebrew devs! I've just ported Evas (from the EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries)) to the ps3!!!

Have fun with the Expedite demo (a benchmarking tool for Evas with tons of tests). A bit slow but that's normal Enjoy!!

Edje (Layout engine) is already ported with Embryo+Lua. Next couple of days will be to port Elementary, a full widget toolkit.

Btw, Exepedite will do a printf on ethdebug and send the FPS for each test. It was fun playing with the PS3 again after so long!


 

They Do Not Die 2 v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Game is Released

141w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer ThatOtherDev has released a PS3 homebrew game entitled They Do Not Die 2 v0.1 alongside a port of the original version for Nintendo Wii and Windows users as well.

To quote: So I'm making a sequel to my top down zombie shooter They Do Not Die. It is being made primarily for PS3 but there will also be a PC version and there may potentially be a Wii port of it later.

This is just a very early build of it but so far the game already features a truly massive procedurally generated city that is populated by human survivors and zombies that you can shoot.

One thing that I have working already that I'm really happy with is the fact that you (the player) are not treated special by the zombie AI. They will gladly ignore you if there is another human that is closer to them. There is something really cool about walking down a street and seeing people being herded by zombies.

There is collision detection that makes you bump into other people and prevents you from walking on water...
 

Avoidance v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Port is Now Released

250°
141w ago - Following up on his previous PlayStation 3 homebrew game development, this weekend ThatOtherDev has released a PS3 port of Avoidance v0.1 from the Nintendo Wii and PC version.

Download: Avoidance v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Port

To quote: Here is a really bad port of my Wii/PC game Avoidance. It still plays and renders at 640x480 and instead of forcing the screen resolution down to that or being stretched to fill the screen its just drawn in the center of the screen with black borders filling the unused space. So the higher your resolution the less of the screen is actually used.

If you are using a low resolution with component cables then part of the screen will flicker (I'm not completely sure why but it seems although double buffering is behaving differently then it does when using HDMI). Your score and high score are not displayed on screen and your high score is not saved.

Like I said, it is a really bad port but it is playable and I don't intend to spend any time trying to correct its flaws in the near future so I figured I would just post it as is.
