149w 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.

Download: PS3 Fixed EasyStaticRAFConverter v1.0 / PS3 Fixed EasyStaticRAFConverter v1.0a

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.

Instructions:

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 desired settings are selected. Using it this way provides a few simple minipulation features to adjust the logo and there is also a preview button to preview your logo.

v1.0a Changes:

  • Version is now 1.0a (because its a small update)
  • Added Fill resize option
  • Saves a preview in output folder
  • Added a "Specify Output" option to change output location

Planned:

  • A fade in/out effect has been requested, I might or might not get to that.

Log:

  • This is version 1.0 of a new revision of PCLCv2.

Adjustment settings:

Resize, Reposition.

There are also presets like Stretch, Zoom, anchor to top left/top right/top center/center left/center/center right/bottom left/bottom center/bottom right.

Planned:

  • A modded version of this will be used in a dynamic theme editor I will be working on.
  • A Fill resizing option might come in later update.

Update: In related PS3 homebrew news, TizzyT also made available JSXviewer, which is a tool for viewing and extracting .jsx files found in PS3 Themes with details below.

Download: JSXviewer.exe

This is fairly old and is unfinished (can't automatic decompile yet) but I was told I should put this here. Its a tool to view/extract info from .jsx files (usually found when dealing with themes). It might help in manual decompilation for now I guess. I might get around to finishing the auto decompile feature.

Thanks Sandungas for the help.

Finally, from sandungas: Before people asks... this tool is supposed to generate the original "javascript like" file used to compile .raf animations (inside dynamic themes and coldboot)

It doesn't makes the decompilation yet, but it does the previous steps like cropping tables, generating a list of opcodes, etc... usefull to study how the compilation to decompilation works

Thx

FMAranda, the font is Clarendon Bold Expanded. Good luck finding it though, it's a commercial font and costs £25.

Attached the .ttf zipped below. My father was nice enough to find it for me. Such a show off.

Today zembor0 has released a Custom PS3 Boot Logo Creator homebrew application alongside some videos of the mods in action with a guide detailed below.

Download: Custom PS3 Boot Logo Creator / Cold Boot Creator Source Code / Windows Logo Example / conDone Piracy Example / PS1 Animated PS3 Coldboot by Glowball1 / Boot Logo Creator.7z (19.84 MB)

To quote: Here is my tool to help you make your custom PS3 boot logos.

For examples: (thx to mrmuppet and me)

You will need:

  • Photoshop (To create your Boot Logo)
  • Photoshop DDS plugin (To allow you to edit the Logo)
  • The attached Boot Logo Creator
  • SimplyZip

Basic Instructions:

1. Install Photoshop
2. Install the DDS Plugin NVIDIA Plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop (Normal/Cube Maps, DDS)
3. Edit your DDS files
4. Run Coldboot Creator and follow the steps

Full Instructions:

1. After You have installed Photoshop and the dds plug-in you will need to open the dds files in the "Boot Logo's (dds's)" Folder. When you open the DDS click on "Load Using Default Sizes"

2. When you have created your desired logo you have to save it with these settings:

3. Repeat this for all 6 pictures Do Not resize the pictures (Resolution)
4. Run "Coldboot Creator.exe" and select "Step1"

5. You will need to convert you DDS files to GTF files, to do this Click "Convert Pictures" and follow the instructions.
6. When you have converted your pictures Browse to all the files it asks for:

7. Press Start and it should say Success, then close that window and click Step2
8. Follow the on screen instructions with pictures to compress the step1 file

9. Click step3
10. Browse to the required files and click finish to create the final Coldboot.raf

11. Copy the Coldboot.raf to /dev_flash/vsh/resource on your ps3 (You will need a way to write to flash eg. Asbestos or FreeFlash 3.55 compiled or dev_blind)

Do not change the size of the images (Resolution)There are no checks, if you change the size your coldboot will not work!

I have tested this on 3.55, it should work on 3.41 since the Coldboot.raf files are the same (Correct me if i'm wrong)
