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...
To quote: It features some huge code improvements that boost performance, a few bug fixes, XP support (could still be buggy do to lack of enough testers), and greatly improved game compatibility. I'm also including a new version of the cheat database with it, which has some new games and additional cheats for games that were already supported.
New features in this release:
SFO creation and patching is all done within this application now, instead of calling out to another application to do it. It's now creating a new param.sfo from scratch, using any pertinent values from the original param that it can. By doing it this way it's fixing a ton of current compatibility issues (like with Star Ocean and Ninja Gaiden 2). It's not using a generic value for certain things like resolution and sound format either,...
Another release to improve the request backlog. As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well.
