189w ago - 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.

It's based on the number of comments and views, and since this thread has been around awhile that's why pretty much.

Thanks Ezio, already started working on the next update, but might take a while... since I'm gonna concentrate on the graphics for this one... want to spruce it up a bit more.

Let me explain somersetting to some people, Solar is not pre-rendered videos... It's REAL TIME RENDERED 3D GRAPHICS.
