November 24, 2010 // 11:07 pm - Today PRiSMiWi from Spanish forum (linked above) has shared details on a WIP version of his PS3 Open Manager Theme Editor, followed shortly by a Beta release below.

Download: PS3 Open Manager Theme Editor Installer / PS3 Open Manager Theme Editor Installer (English)

A release is coming soon, and below is a rough translation on the PlayStation 3 homebrew application:

I tried to make a customized theme for my Open Manager, but having to edit the position of the texts a lot of times, without knowing where will they go, and how would the layers be, in which order would they look better, etc... I ended a little bit tired and mad...

So, seeing that people really like to make their own themes, I'd like to make the work of making themes easier, and I'm developing a theme creator/editor... I'd like to introduce you my first addition to the PS3 Scene.


• Compatible with the last version of Open Manager
• It works with the 8 layers of Open Manager
• It edits the INI from a nice GUI and allows you to see the changes in real time.

It's capable of sorting the layers and drawing them on the desired order, and of loading the text parameters along with the position of the images. The only missing thing is to position the texts, and finally save the "config.ini" file.

PS: This isn't any advancement to the Scene (I'd wish to have time to investigate on the Real Scene (and will to embark myself in such difficult projects)).

I wonder can this be easily transated to english? would be a lot easier to use! was hoping the conf.ini would have the program text for modifying but no luck.

I like the idea. It will be interesting to see what kinds of cool themes this might lead to in the future. It also means that if a manager is skinnable we might not get so many different releases where the only real difference is the theme.

This looks nice... having a bit of trouble finding themes. I'm sure they'll come though

Theme manager is a least useful thing can be made for OM.

It won't add ability to play GT5...
