August 16, 2011 // 5:06 pm - 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 or here, even though this is a MM thread, lol.. Hijacked. CAW!

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

  • 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.


  • 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.

If you mean motion backgrounds then look here:

I think it might be Mato77's Sound wave3

If you mean MM regular themes then I'm not sure.

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?

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!
