Hey, I want to show you a new project from me called XMBPCE which I started yesterday.
What is the XMB (XrossMediaBar)?
XMB is the graphical user interface of the PS3 & PSP.
What can I do with this emulator?
With this emulator you can use the graphical user interface of the PS3/PSP on your Windows PC. You can control it with the PS3 Controller.
What has been done already?
- XMB Boot: Done (Boots up like the PS3)
- Graphical user interface: Halfway done (Animated background missing)
- Controller support: Done
- Category browsing: Only “Games”
