164w ago - Following up on the previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer TizzyT has updated PS3 Color Logo Creator to v2.50 Beta followed by versions 2.51 and 2.511 with the changes outlined below.

Download: PS3 Color Logo Creator v2.511 (GIMP Mod) / PS3 Color Logo Creator v2.51 / PS3 Color Logo Creator v2.50 / Logo Repo

v2.50 Changes:

  • UI has changed.
  • Shouldn't have packing errors anymore.
  • Does fine if file-size of logo changes.
  • No hex-editing.
  • There are no more arguments.
  • Like prior versions of PCLCV2, (should) creates/extracts all required files.
  • CS5 extended instead of CS4.

Not implemented:

  • Detects when Photoshop is finished extracting (will add in soon).
  • Save preview (will add in soon).
  • Have not added Code Rebug's Coldboot installer (will add in soon).

v2.51 Changes:

  • Detects when Photoshop is extracting and when its finished extracting.
  • Save preview image during coldboot packing process, saved in the Coldboot folder.
  • Code Rebug's Coldboot installer will be extracted to the same location as the application.

Update: Finished up and implemented the missing things. Version is 2.51.

This version is a slight mod of version 2.51. Instead of Photoshop I have replaced it with GIMP 2.6, DDS plugin is included. For now I will say use with care since I have not figured out what settings need to be set in GIMP to create a successful coldboot, if anything stay away from this version unless you want to test.

I am looking at 2 potential alternatives for Photoshop. One being the one found in this version and the other is Paint.Net.

IF YOU ARE TESTING:

My PS3 is unfortunately not functional and so I want to take this time to request testers. Testers need to keep in mind that installing a messed up coldboot cannot perma-brick your PS3. Testers also must know before hand that if the system does hang or seem to be in a brick state that they should be ready to reinstall the firmware.

Testers goal is to find a working setting while saving that will create a working coldboot and report it.

ProTip: it is one of the DXT5 options.
Protip2: use save as and not save to get to the different settings that need to be tested.

Changes:

  • Replaced bundled Photoshop with gimp 2.6 portable (added dds plugin).
  • Kind of stupid of me but added a close button in the help menu.
  • Changed the browse window to browse to any editor and not just Photoshop.exe

Future plans:

  • Update help menu with editing/saving information.
  • Fix the issue of not loading preview image on slow computers (maybe sometime soon)
  • Get a Paint.Net variant version (maybe)
  • Add simple preset animations ex: scroll in from left/right/top/bottom (possibly sooner then later)
  • UI changes (eventually going to happen)






Finally, from TizzyT also comes a Create Custom PS3 ColdBoot Tutorial as follows:

Here is my first attempt at a boot logo. It's Sid the Sloth from Ice Age..

I have created one for waninkoko and one for kmeaw as you can see, I've tested them both and they work perfectly, I even suprised myself!

I edited all the HD and SD logo's so they will work for everyone... enjoy!

No boot sound yet, I might look into it when I have a bit more time!
