Wow, I just made this for myself initially. I really had no idea how many people would be interested in this. I got alot of requests for this. This release handles all videos directories and does photos as well.
The purpose of this application is to enable you to keep private videos and/or pictures on your PSP as inconspicuously as possible. The problem with hiding your media directories is that it looks suspicious. Which is the same problem if you have a program that asks for a password. The solution is to create a harmless looking application which is in reality an application waiting for your password to unlock your videos and/or pictures.
This is a very simple application which anyone could write. But since I couldn't find one quite like it, in my own fashion, I made one. The program will appear as a calculator application with the name "BASIC Calculator" in your XMB. The calculator program is functional, it's code is copied (with permission) from the calculator code included in Shine's Lua Player 0.20 with a few minor alterations. The only way to see your private media is to enter the correct code sequence into the calculator. The program swaps an alternate directory with the regular media directory, which can have the effect of replacing your regular media or just adding the hidden files to your regular media, depending on the organization of your memory card. Running the program again reverses the process, restoring your memory card to the state it was before.
Version 2 includes the option to run in various non-exclusive modes. (Note that version 1 ran in mode 1).
Mode 1 - swaps your videos from the \MP_ROOT\100MNV01 video directory
Mode 2 - swaps your videos from the \MP_ROOT\101ANV01 video directory
Mode 3 - swaps your videos from the \VIDEO directory
Mode 4 - swaps your photos
1. Copy the program directories to your \PSP\GAME or \PSP\GAME150 folder, depending on your flavor of firmware and settings.
2. Mode 1 - Create a directory \MP_ROOT\100MNV02 and put the videos you wish to keep private in that folder.
Mode 2 - Create a directory \MP_ROOT\101ANV02 and put the videos you wish to keep private in that folder.
Mode 3 - Create a directory \VIDEO2 and put the videos you wish to keep private in that folder.
Mode 4 - Create a directory \PSP\PHOTO2 and put the pictures you wish to keep private in that folder.
3. Open the file \PSP\GAME\calculator\script.lua. The first two lines read
Constant1 = 4
Constant2 = 20
Change these values to the values you wish to use for your code. The first one is entered first, followed by the second. For example, the default setting requires you enter a 4, then 20.
4. The next three lines read
mode1 = true
mode2 = false
mode3 = false
mode4 = false
Set each mode you want to run to true and each mode you don't want to run to false.
To unhide your private videos
1. Run the program
2. Enter the first code, for example "4"
3. Hit the "=" button
4. Enter the second code, for example "20"
5. Hit the "=" button a second time.
A message will flash on the screen "Cheat enabled" and the application will exit.
To hide your private videos
Run the program and enter the code sequence again.
Shine & Nevyn for their Lua Player, Cool for his Lua Player mod, and wiki.ps2dev.org for having great reference material. Special thanks to Shine for letting me use his calculator code in this release. Any users who provided feedback and suggestions.
