47w ago - Following up on his previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer TizzyT has released a fixed PS3 Easy Static RAF Converter v1.0 for those interested in converting PlayStation 3 ColdBoot files followed by version 1.0a below.
To quote from his blog: Here is my previously released but not working StaticRafConverter. This is the finished and working / tested release.
This will be the final revision of a Raf creation program as I believe this is the easiest to use. I will still make updates if bugs are found or if something added.
There are 2 ways of using this, One way is to simply drag a supported image over the tool's icon and a new folder is created in the same location as the image that was used. Inside the created folder is a coldboot.raf.
The second way is to run the program normally and select an image. And press Convert after...
48w ago - This weekend the Spanish PlayStation 3 developers at DemonHades have announced that JBM 3.55 PS3 CFW is now in development, which will offer the best of JFW DH 3.56 MA in a new Custom Firmware.
To quote, roughly translated: Making decisions for the future of JFW-DH
Hello friends first of all like demons to thank you for trusting in JFW356MA as custom of your PS3, as you well know the PS3 scene is going through difficult times because of the dominance of DRM dongles, these dongles are set to 355, for structure and kernel.
As you know many of you in MA you have had problems when running certain applications mainly due to this reason which we have all we can to resolve, but we are aware that this balance in trying to adapt all our MA giving us more work to realization of new and abundant applications for JFW.
We have been thinking about these obstacles in which we double slaughter, we play in making new things and other things that appear in portage other devs submitting to more pressure and therefore more cramped.
As happened a few days with the PSN and spoof, had it not been for that we have been watching Black ubiesemos us as if other custom could, and I as a responsible community dh I can not want it to happen.
Below are the changes from his blog, as follows: Here is a small update for They Do Not Die 2 along with its first Windows release.
I've added blood and corpses. On Wii and PS3 they quickly shrink until they disappear but on Windows they fade instead of shrink (which I think looks a lot better) and there can be more of them in the game world at a time which means that they disappear more slowly.
I've also made a handful of minor and most likely unnoticeable changes (mostly related to city generation).
