    I used prboom plus changing the game folder path and freedoom.iwad as a base and built up the star wars files found here and merged them into the iwad, i’ve also included the dark hour doom weapon pack in options/general just delete the 1 at the end, and restart.

    May not work on sd tvs just edit the .cfg in:
    screen_resolution “1280×720″ and change it to:
    screen_resolution “640×480″

    PS3 level list
    Level One - Princess Leia’s Blockade Runner Decks One and Two
    Level Two - Princess Leia’s Blockade Runner Decks Three and Four
    Level Three - Death Star Chasm and Technical Stations
    Level Four - Death Star Detention Level and Security Station
    Level Five - Tatooine Surface
    Level Six - Imperial Attack on Hoth
    Level Seven - Endor Surface
    Level Eight - Confrontation with Vader
    Level Nine - Hall of Legends
    Level Ten - Dagobah Surface ???
    Level Eleven- ????
    Level Twelve- ????
    Level Thirteen - CRASHES TO XMB

    if you want to cheat and skip levels hold R3 until the OSK comes up and click Page down, hold R3 again to reselect joystick.

    I know there is a few levels missing/mixed up but it does make a nice little game also it searches usb root for any other .iwad files, all credit go’s out to the the old doom modders behind star wars doom, and Robo Hobo for prboom port.



    Guys, this is what a scene is supposed to be about, Homebrew being released for free, because the developer loves and enjoys what he does, unlike other sites who buy developers or sites that promote reDRM devices.

    Thank you samson for staying true to what Homebrew and a scene is supposed to be, other developers and other sites should take notice of you :)

    The latest PSVITA fw update labeled as a security released is out and blocks VHBL. As you would expect if you want your homebrew, then don’t update to latest version!

    To quote:

    As expected, the latest PS Vita firmware update is a “security release” which will prevent you from runningVHBL through Monster Hunter. It still remains to be confirmed if all games of the series have been patched, but I’m pretty sure the answer will be yes.


    Does this mean you cannot use VHBL anymore? No! As long as you stay on firmware 1.80 (and assuming you did Buy one of the Monster Hunter games when it was still time), you can use Open CMA to copy your homebrews to the Vita without upgrading. If your Vita (or CMA) insist that you update to 1.81, don’t lose hope. I have been told that the Vita can “forget” it saw the latest update if you hard-reset it. Or was it that you need to reset factory settings? Well, either way, try to not put yourself into a situation where the Vita asks for an update, but if it happens, be sure to try and reset it before you decide your console is doomed to upgrade.

    Of course, you might want to update to 1.81 in order to be able to connect to the PSN. If you do this, you will lose access to VHBL through the Monster Hunter exploit. There might be other VHBL releases in the future to bring compatibility with this new firmware, but we don’t have anything scheduled yet, and one thing is sure, we will not be able to magically revive the exploit from Monster Hunter, so don’t even ask, and update at your own risk.

    For those of you who decide to stay on 1.80 for VHBL, openCMA is currently the only way to copy homebrews to your Vita.

    It looks like zadow28 has found a way to start a game in full debugging mode . He also claims the data can be sniffed with “software”.

    I research this option myself , and i can see also there are ways to to optain the decrypted eboot several ways.

    I really played around today, and i manages to get full game debugging.

    And that havent been done as yet

    It always have frustrateted me that you couldent debugg retail eboots/games

    Normally when loading just fself in debugger, is just nothinh happends.

    So i played around.

    here is an small tut.

    First reset in debugger mode.

    locate the eboot.bin decrypt it, and resign with Fself one.

    then in target manager set app_home to the BLES or BLUS folder.

    reset target

    Then load executable then locate the eboot.bin

    load it

    then open Tuner from the SDK.

    then load executable there also .

    when you do this you get kicked to the ps3 debugger.

    then in debugger you press go under options ..

    concrats you are debugging full game .

    movie intro


    also on the ps3 you can play the game under debugger mode .

    since eboots stays in ram to the next is loaded the intire game can be debugged.

    so there for only the eboot have to be decrypted and not the sprx if the game os needed off that

    just since an monkey like me can figure it out so can you.

    PS when the debugging starts you can sniff with “software.”

    even works on 4.11 games but prepare for huge files like 1 gb when sniffing, so hope for any good suggestions.

    really dont care about war on sites, just help eachother

    funny **** is that you can debugg both TB and cobra this way, all the updates an dongle updaters, just wised that dex was around before 



    so offcouse you say why debugg the game.

    1 ) Well the debugged of the game is done by decrypting and fself the eboot. Not the other files sprx/self ones they can still be signed with higher keys.

    This method also allowed full coredump from ram.

    2) Othere way i found is simply sniff with wireshack on local network, the game can be either set up as emu or just app_home.

    just sniff then load game. then in the log of the sniffer, the binary is there.(HEX)

    still some testing

    Another post from him:

    So basicly my theory is load 4.1 games with the update trick, load it in the debugger, when game is running make full dump with ram.
    This should work since eboots are stored in ram till the next is loaded.

    still you need some kind off debugg info in the eboot, for the debugger to load the eboot.

    >> The program will pass the PKG to PkgView.exe when you double click or press ENTER on a PKG.

    Pressing Shift+ENTER on a PKG file, will extract the content of the PKG on the same folder of the PKG.
    Pressing Ctrl+ENTER on a PKG file, will show the ContentID of the PKG and allow open it with PkgView.

    Thanks to ps3devwiki.com for all the information provided and HELLCAT for his PS3SFOEdit.exe.

    A simple GUI to extract and create PSARC archives.

    PS3 Game Integrity 1.2
    This tool calculates the MD5, SHA-1 or CRC32 for a file or folder (and sub-directories) and generate a content.md5 file for future verification. If the content.md5 is present in the folder, the program reports if any file was deleted, added or changed. This tool is very useful to check if your game has corrupted files due due bad sectors, virus or cross-links (which are very common when an USB device is removed from the PS3 while it is turned on).

    New in 1.1: CRC32 hash support, find in log, size is now optional. Version 1.2 fixes hash for files larger than 4GB.

    Note: Several MD5 for known Playstation 3 files is included (PUPs for OFW, CFW, DEX and PSP files)

    PS3 File Splitter 1.3
    Splits files larger than 4GB to fit in USB drives formatted with FAT32. It also join splitted files. Splits files can be any specified size.
    Note: GiB = 2^30, GB=10^9, MiB=2^20, MB=10^6, KiB=2^10, KB=10^3

    New in 1.1: Support for more file extensions (eg. part# = part1 .. part9, part0 = part0 .. part9). Version 1.2 fixes join of files.

    PS3RIP 1.2.1
    It’s a tool that should help you gain some space on your external HDD, removing unnecessary files.
    It actually moves the files to a RIPPED folder in the root of the disk and replace the file with a 0 byte file.

    VERY IMPORTANT: You should verify your game (play it!) before delete any file permanently!!

    +The PS3RIP includes the patterns for ripping almost all languages, except English!!

    Initial release excluded English & Spanish. This release excludes English only, but allows to exclude other languages.

    IMPORTANT: Review the patterns and comment or remove the lines for the languages that you want to keep.

    (for ripping files stored in your PS3 use my PS3 FTP Client tool)

    PS3_DISC.SFB edit 1.1
    It’s a quick way to edit the title id of PS3_DISC.SFB.

    Create PS3_EXTRA 1.1
    This tool scans for the PKG, MP4 and P3T files copied to each game folder, its PS3_UPDATE folder, PKGDIR or PS3_CONTENT,
    and store them under a PS3_EXTRA structure.

    When a game is mounted with multiMAN, there will be 2 BD icons on the XMB:
    one disc for the game itself and another with PKGs, MP4 and P3T.

    It should make it easier to install the game patches, DLC, fixes, and related videos,
    due they will be listed in a neat menu like the one used by “PStore news” (big squares of 486×405 pixels).

    How to use:
    1) First put the pkg’s at the root of your game folder (eg: BLES00000).
    2) Run Create_PS3_EXTRA.exe
    3) Click the browse button in the top right corner [...]
    4) Select the “GAMES” folder that contains the games with the pkg’s eg: x:GAMEZ and then click the OK button
    5) Now tick or untick the folders you want or don’t want the app to process
    6) Click the Start button
    7) Close the program
    8) Open the folder eg: BLES00000 folder
    9) Now your folder should contain a folder called PS3_EXTRA
    10) All the pkg’s should have automatically been renamed and moved to the PS3_EXTRA folder
    11) Launch the game using multiMAN
    12) On the xmb menu you should now see 2 disc icon’s. The top disc icon is the actual game, The bottom disc icon is the dlc/update pkg’s.
    13) Click on the bottom disc icon to see and install the dlc/updates

    Changes in 1.1:
    +Create_PS3_EXTRA now can find PKG files in PS3_CONTENT and PKGDIR folders, and move them to the PS3_EXTRA folder.
    +The PS3_CONTENT and PKGDIR folders are renamed to avoid conflicts with the PS3_EXTRA structure.
    !Fixed package “size” issue for PKG files >4GB
    !Due a typo in the code it was not moving the P3T files to PS3_EXTRA. Fixed.

    renam 1.0
    This tool, if copied to the GAMES or GAMEZ folder, will rename the games sub-folders
    from the default “BLUS0000-[Title]” format to “Title [BLUS0000]“.

    This name format should make it easier to find the games using Explorer.

    Just copy the renam.exe to the x:GAMES (or x:GAMEZ) folder and rut it.

    (Do not expect any GUI. It will rename the folders and exit)

    All these tools are Win32 and require the VB5 runtime DLL.
    XP users should have this already installed (if not, download & install the DLL).

    Download the VB5 Runtime Modules from:

    That’s all for now

    Joystick_Warrior a member of Staff on the official US PlayStation forums has reported of problems with Sony’s latest firmware release, here is what he states in his post:


    Hey everyone. We’ve been noticing quite a bit of feedback from people having issues with the new 4.25 update. We wanted to collect some data from everyone so we can better understand the issues that have come up. If you can go ahead and post this info it would be very helpful for us:

    • Your PS3 Model, Hard drive size (phat/slim, GB size, default/custom HDD)
    • Internet connection (wired/wireless)
    • Did you update to 4.25 from version 4.20 or 4.21 (4.21 was an optional update that was not required)

    If you guys have any other info you want to give, please do as any details could help us out in narrowing down the problems. Thanks everyone!


    Various members responded and here are some of there posts:


    i have the slim,just 160,default. was fine until 4.25 update. im now falling through map floors and going through doorways 3 or 4 times . ive tryed wired and wireless same same. i have a 30 mb internet connection ive had my cable company here to make sure it was not an internet issue.definatly the 4.25 update. i did a reformat last night no change.i play bf3 u see . nice for the exX2 event this weekend. maybe we could just go back to the older version until the problem is fixed.



    I have a 120GB slim. Wireless internet, and I had whatever the newest firmware before this update was. My PS3 is hard shutting off on Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and I don’t know if this new firmware is to blame. I got a flashing red light when this happened that stopped blinking after I hit the power button. I was able to eject the disc. Scared to play my system right now.



    I have the 60gb big PS3 and I was playing fine until I downloaded the new firmware and than when it was done installing and my ps3 restarted I cant get the tv to recognize the ps3 now and my controller dont work on it. The new update broke my ps3 i think.



    Hey.    I too am being negatively affected by the 4.25 update. My PS3′s connection to the Playstation Network has failed to operate correctly, entirely since the update despite my internet connection itself being fine and working as always.

    • Slim Model. 160GB - Default Drive
    • Wireless Internet Connection.  ( NOTE: As said in previous posts I have made regarding this issue. My connection was fine until the 4.25 Update. )
    • Updated from 4.20

    This update has entirely destroyed my PS3′s Connection to PSN. All games are unplayable online since the update, logging in is far more difficult than it ever has been.

    Please fix this issue.



    PS3 80 gig

    wireless: downloads up to 70 mb and uploads up to 35mb

    had latest update before updating last night

    now TV won’t recognize my PS3 is connected; tried various ways to correct this; not a cable thing, it’s an update thing



    I have a Slim 320G.  I updated from 4.21.  I use WiFi.

    After the update the system rebooted.  The XMB appeared but everything was going slowly.  Then my controllers were not working.  I could not power off the system by holding the power button and had to unplug the power cord.  After that it worked well.


    Now those are only some of the qoutes on the first page, there are 9+ pages of replies

    Is our situation not dismal? Wonderland is so discombobulated that lady bugs have turned belligerent and enlisted in the queen's army! PUNISH THEIR CONVERSION!

    User @munky875821417 today made a thread about a key that was released on Wiki Talk Page. (Ps3devwiki) by Nas_Plugi.

    To quote:


    Public key: 948DA13E8CAFD5BA0E90CE434461BB327FE7E080475EAA0AD3AD4F5B6247A7FDA86DF69790196773
    Curve type: 2 (vsh)

    They say that curiosity killed the cat…and @GregoryRasputin found this.
    User Tommydanger member of lan.st started some research about PSX Eboots:

    I thought I would share my findings about the PSX Eboots. (official ones )
    It’s by far not complete, there is still many unknown. (atleast to me :P )
    (I haven’t found a place with a proper discussion about it yet :/ )
    But I hope with the help of others we are able to reverse engineer the format much quicker

    Feel free to correct me If I got something wrong

    16 Byte file with the “keys” required to run the game?
    If you try to run the game without the keys.bin present it gives you CA000005 error on 3.02 OE-B. I don’t know if this is a custom error code from Dax?!
    Used for XOR encryption -> memory card?!

    According to Dax bunch of pngs which hold the manual

    Infact if you try to enter the manual with no document.dat present, it states that there is no user manual.
    You can however switch document.dat, it doesn’t seem to be tied to the eboot (I could open Cool Boarders 2 manual even though I was playing Hot Shots Golf )

    16 byte header which is the same on every document.dat.
    Starting with magic key 0″PGD”, 0 Byte is followed by PGD
    followed by 2 4bytes which MSB is 1 and other 0 then followed by 4 0 Bytes to finish of the header.
    00 50 47 44 01 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
    Contains the compressed ISO image of the psx game.
    40Byte header, just like any other pbp.
    Contains offset to:
    -icon0 (icon you’ll see in the xmb)
    -pic0(semi transparent png which is always in front of pic1)
    -pic1(full res background)
    Psar offset points to
    “PSISOIMG0000″ followed by 4 Bytes of unknown purpose.
    (Maybe some offset?)
    16 bytes header, however only the last 4 bytes differ from eboot to eboot.
    Resident Evil Directors Cut [JP]
    50 53 49 53 4F 49 4D 47 30 30 30 30 00 B3 82 16
    Cool Boarders [US]
    50 53 49 53 4F 49 4D 47 30 30 30 30 C0 DD 7D 11
    Hot Shots Golf 2 [US]
    50 53 49 53 4F 49 4D 47 30 30 30 30 40 C2 F6 08
    Immediately after the PSISOIMG0000 header there are some 0 bytes, which size vary from eboot to eboot
    (Note, there are some 0 bytes before the PSISOIMG0000 label too)
    After the 0 bytes there’s a PGD header of unknown purpose

    At the very bottom of every PSX Eboot you can find a PNG image.
    (I still have to figure the offset to it out)
    This is simply the image you will see when you execute your PSX Eboot.
    On a non PSX Eboot you would see the gameboot.pmf.
    I think it can be changed without breaking the eboot.

    Then after the PNG image, theres another PGD header also of unkown purpose. After it -> EOF.
    (Maybe the 2 PGD files in it are responsible for the way the manual works.
    e.g When you browse through the manual and say exit it at page 15 and then you reenter the manual or reenter after you exited the game it’s still at page 15.
    I tested it on document.dat, leaving it on page 15 and then on page 20, nothing changed, file is still the same.
    So there must be some indicator that keeps track of which page you browsed the last, maybe these two PGD’s have something to do with it?!)

    It saves at ms0:/PSP/SAVEDATA/GAMEID
    Ordinary param.sfo
    Png which was extracted from the eboot
    Always 1024 bytes.
    Purpose yet to be revealed
    Always 131104 bytes.
    Most likely imitates the playstation memory card file system
    Encrypted (xor keys.bin?!)

    Yeah that’s it for now, tell me what you think

    So far we have:

    • Nas_plugi found this key inside EMU not VSH.
    • It’s not DEX specific (or unique for DEX).
    • Common for al TargetID that has EMU.
    • It’s on its in ps1_netemu.self.elf and ps1_newemu.self.elf.
    • Key is STATIC.
    • Curvetype is INSIDE vsh.self not the key.


    What we can do with this?:

    Just wait and see what happens but is related to:

    • PS ONE emulation
    • PSX emulation
    • We don’t know what key was used to decrypt but since the KEY is static *could* be the same.


    Note: I will keep updating this until we reach something worth to the average user to understand, please don’t jump into conclusions if it’s COBRA pwned or something like that. It’s a research and a key posted on PS3DEVWIKI.

    The Drunken Whaler tune is available now for free to download, it’s an initiative from COPILOT Strategic Music + Sound and Bethesda Softworks to make a REMIX contest about this *shady* tune. If you want to do some nice REMIX or in fact you like music you can win:

    •  T-shirt, poster, and copy of Dishonored.

    Cool ;)

    To quote:

    Bethesda recently started offering a free mp3 download of “The Drunken Whaler,” the creepy tune heard during Dishonored‘s E3 trailer, seen above. A collaboration between COPILOT Strategic Music + Sound and Bethesda Softworks, the song set a cold tone for a murderous video of the game back in June.

    Bethesda also kicked off a remix contest for “The Drunken Whaler,” which will net the top ten winners a t-shirt, poster, and copy of Dishonored. Fans have until September 28 to get their dubstep remixes in for a chance to win.

    Square Enix has said we’ll be treated to our first glimpse of the elusive PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIV next month.

    We were surprised when Square promised the PS3 version for a 2012 release (hell, we’re shocked its still coming at all), and now producer Naoki Yoshida has said the first PS3 screenshots and info for the revived MMO, now subtitled ‘A Realm Reborn’, will be released next month.

    To quote:

    “We’ll be releasing the initial information [on the PS3 version] around mid-October,” Yoshida told fans in a recent online chat session. “I believe we’ll have screenshots first, but please hang in there,” he added (thanks Siliconera ).

    According to its announcement last year, Square will release the PS3 version of FFXIV between October and December of 2012. To coincide with the release there will be a play-for-free period for the game as well as a mandatory client update for PC users.

    Some months ago (with E3/TB) and many others trying to squeeze more *Green* of DRM devices caused a serious mayhem to the scene until DEX, keys and eboots got leaked/released. For some reason (they) stepped down or went back to their *DRMcaves* maybe to try to create ANOTHER one with more *fancy* promises.
    Next DONGLE have features like:

    • Waterproof.
    • Bulletproof.
    • More bling bling on the package to lure users to buy it.
    • *Strap* for your cellphone. (As a *free gift*)

    But getting *serious* if i can…Seems that Maximus is on the road again and N0DRM showed their discontent about this *issue*. I can relate with them and everyone who hates the idea of another DRM device on the market.
    So far so good. From that 3 *new dongles* that still are a rumour, none of them got released (yet) plus all of them were false leads.
    Maybe something is being in production stages?…who knows.


    N0DRM = Respect ;)

    Note: *Yard* *sale* if anyone is interesed visit the *other* site where they don’t care about decrypting teams and they see them as a bad seed for their *own* interests. ;)
