September 13, 2011 // 12:39 pm - Following up on my previous release, today I have updated the Solar PS3 Homebrew 3D Screensaver on Tortuga-Cove.com to Solar 2.0 multiMAN PS3 Edition and Stand-Alone followed by version 2.1 and version 2.2.

Download: Solar 2.0 multiMAN PS3 Edition and Stand-Alone / Solar 2.1 multiMAN PS3 Edition and Stand-Alone / Solar 2.2 Rogero Edition / Solar 2.2 multiMAN Edition

Some goodies like FTP, added more visual effects and MP3 playback are now included, and you can follow my progress over in our forums and be sure to grab the release to give us any feedback.

Check the changelog and video below. CAW!




To quote: Well guys, by popular demand here's Solar v2.0. This is a multiMAN edition and stand-alone. The app would need to be spawned by multiMAN, so it's up to Dean.

But the stand-alone will spawn multiMAN. FTP works really well, and it's very fast, but sadly only one session... lol, so use it wisely. I will fix in the future. Will add more stuff in future releases, but 1st I have to fix my setup... lol which caused my delay.

Hope you guys enjoy it, CAW!

Changelog:

  • FTP
  • Particles effects
  • Light effects
  • Added Text
  • Major memory fixes
  • Some resolutions and cosmetic changes
  • Fixed Sound loop bug

Usage:

  • SELECT pauses the music
  • START resumes it. lol
  • X starts the FTP
  • And all the other buttons will launch multiMAN.

FTP works really well, and it's very fast, but sadly only one session...lol, so use it wisely. will fix in the future. Will add more stuff in future releases, but 1st I have to fix my setup... lol which caused my delay. Hope you guys enjoy it, CAW!

Solar v2.2 Changelog:

  • Fixed soft reset when exiting to xmb with PS button
  • Packages are now half the size, Thanks DeanK.
  • Ftp is a little better, can be used as many times as wanted now.
  • Changed animations around.
  • Some more code clean-up.

Note: when using FTP, you have to connect & re-connect twice to return Solar's animation, till I fix that.

Hi everyone. I have a new unofficial god war theme. I just figured out how to create my own xmb icons so I thought I'll show you my work. I made it from other old p3t themes that I got from ps3 news , other old multiman themes and my own pictures I downloaded off google. Thanks condorstrike for the icon0 and picpa images. Theme preview below

yeah, I get bored and always end up back to coding or photoshop, and since all I see is Eboot this and dongle that, I said let me throw a homebrew wrench in the PS3 scene.

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

Definitely sad to see ya go condorstrike, and yea I've given up on it about a year ago myself but with summer coming (it's actually 80+ degrees here today) my guess is even if anything new on the free PS3 homebrew scene surfaces most people will be too busy outdoors to care much anyway.

Long gone are the days when most PS3 Devs believed in open source and were not out for profit in the hands of the nefarious Max Louarn / Paul Owen et al regimes. As the popular saying goes now though, it is what it is.

On a brighter note, hope to see ya back for the PS4 scene and take care!

I would just like to say I'm through with the PS3 scene, I hope everyone the best. good bye... CAW!

I would also like to thank the site, and you Boss... you were always nice to me.

I'll still be around working on other things, and in Tortuga working on Vita, Xbox... whatever, it depends, but not on the PS3.
I can't stand what the scene has become and the way real devs are treated.

I don't mean on this site, I mean in general.
