148w ago - Following up on my previous release, this weekend I have updated the Solar PS3 homebrew 3D screensaver to version 4.2 with the changes outlined below.

Download: Solar 4.2 Standalone / Solar 4.2 Rogero Edition / Solar_v4.2_CFW4.XX PKG / Solar 4.2 Resigned for CFW 4.65 Cobra DARKNET 1.01 by pauline45 / UP0001-CNDR00001_00-0000000000000000.pkg.197.v4.2.pkg (Mirror)

Solar 4.2 resigned for cfw 4.65 cobra/not cobra darknet

To quote: Hi guys, Here's another update, Solar v4.2.

Even though I took a little break, I'm back with a new Solar update; added a bunch of stuff this time around, most of them are in the changelog. There's two versions, stand-alone and Rogero Manager's. For Rogero Manager both PKGs need to be installed.

1. Solar.pkg
2. Solar_RELOAD_RM.pkg

After installed it can be launched from XMB or automatically while Rogero Manager idles. Hope you enjoy it, thanks. CAW!

Changelog Solar v4.2:

  • Rebuilt the 3D engine.
  • Added more items to UI interface.
  • Added memory counter.
  • Added FPS (frames per second).
  • Added better light engine.
  • Added a 2 hours counter for system turn off.
  • Added ICON1.PAM (animated icon).
  • Added an intro loading screen.
  • Added Solar system trivia.
  • Added some minor MP3 player tweaks.
  • Created 2 version (stand-alone/multiMAN & Rogero Manager built in "automatic launching").
  • And a lot more stuff, I should write them down as I go... lol

Update: Solar 4.2 for CFW 3.55-4.XX by Condorstrike:

Hi guys, Here’s another update, Solar v4.2. There’s two versions, stand-alone and Rogero Manager’s, for Rogero Manager both PKGs need to be installed.

  • For 3.55 CFWs
  • For 4.XX CFWs

After installed it can be launched from XMB or automatically while Rogero Manager idles. Hope you enjoy it, thanks. CAW!

Update #2: From pauline45: I don’t know if you like but I resigned (linked above) the old work by Condorstrike Solar 4.2 running on CFW 4.65 Darknet Cobra. May I say that it is very fast and it is very nice and why not have it on CFW 4.65?

It works fine on Darknet Cobra the only bug is that if you exit with the PS button the homebrew. In fact I recommend you quit by pressing or O. I hope you enjoy.

Tested: CFW 4.65 COBRA DARKNET 1.01

I am trying to find a particular theme I saw it on a youtube video, a thunderstorm, with some rock music as background. Any ideas?

Currently adding a themable GUI to Solar, and working on my old FTP.

I fixed his post hehe, basically I told him I didn't want you to feel obligated to post it here since you also run Tortuga-Cove, etc.

I don't mind posting the news as time permits... it's what I do daily here pretty much!
