• Homebrew, PS3 Hacks , 01.01.2012

    Condorstrike has updated his popular Solar application, here is a quote from the change log:

    • Improvements and additions to MP3 player.
    • Added MP3′s names.
    • Added Volume control.
    • Added fast forward and reverse.
    • Added continuous titles playback.
    • Added Dynamic MP3 names effects for each of the 3 current scenes.
    • Added Dynamic background Effects.
    • Added Atmospheric lighting effect, gives dimension effect specially in scene#1.
    • Increased particles effects and trajectories.
    • added a spaceship
    • Added controller vibration.
    • Added other minor graphics changes, and many thing I can’t remember now…lol

    I’ll try to come up with faster updates in the future…Improve the MP3 player GUI, cleanup the code some more, will add a feature that is present but turned off, which is to be able to move the planets and ships manually and maybe add newsfeeds or something and also plug some memory leaks.

      Won't use it until it includes Lyrics. ^^
      But now is my chance to ask it without bumping old threads :D

      What's the song's name? Does anybody know that? :-?

      The space shuttle visualizer needs fixing, it has got cracks in the window but if you had a crack in the window in space it would explode.

      It's really nice, but wouldn't it look better if some planets rotated slower/faster than others around their axis?

      ElSalvatore truth be told, I cant remember the name...lol, as i changed it to mount it to memory.

      update to come very soon.

      Fixed mp3 timers, now shows seconds and minutes.
      Created a themable GUI for the MP3 player.
      Will make the background music run from HDD, users can use their own, but why would they want to.
      Fixed a bug that was crashing Solar, tested for 48 hours running music...all good now. :D
      raised playable bitrate for mp3s.
      and some other secret stuff.
