185w ago - Hi guys, Condorstrike is back in action and now released Solar. A beautiful PS3 3D screensaver for PlayStation 3 homebrew apps with effects, sound and work in progress FTP. Main reason I made this is to have something nice looking and to prevent burned-screens.

This version spawns Rogero's manager, he will update the manager later to Spawn Solar, but I intend to make one for any other app eg: showtime or whatever as long as they have a proper SELF and coded to spawn with a timer to Solar.

You can follow my progress and updates in Tortuga-Cove.com or here, even though this is a MM thread, lol.. Hijacked. CAW!

Check the usage, changelog, download link and video below:

Download: Solar V1 Multifunctional Homebrew Screensaver with 3D Support

Usage:

  • SELECT pauses the music
  • START resumes it. lol
  • L3 respawns Solar
  • And all the other buttons will launch the app it's attached to, in this case Rogero Manager.

Changelog:

  • 3D and 2D playback.
  • 3 stable screens timed to eliminate screen burns.
  • Mp3 playback.
  • Dynamic effects.
  • This version works with Rogero Manager.

Future Updates:

  • Ftp, ....still doesn't work right, so I'll leave it for a future update.
  • More screens.
  • More Dynamic effects, eg: asteroid hitting a planet.
  • Comets, well that already works but too late to add it.
  • User MP3 playback by drag/drop to CNDR00001 directory.

lol.. I saw 1400 myself and said... wtf, but then I remembered this thread has been around for a while, I pretty much took it hostage... lol

will be releasing a minor update to Solar soon, basically ttf fonts (customizable) and some other not so minor things.

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.
