Project name: downPSP
Division: PSP APP
Original enter: Yes
Support motion: No
Old compo winner: Nope
First of all, hello, I'm carlosgs, and this is my first time in the Neoflash spring coding compo :-D
Please, If I am doing something wrong, contact me :-S
downPSP is an app that I started in lua, but now I'm making it in C.
The best function of this app is that it's going to be able to download and install a lot of homebrew apps.
It looks for the homebrew database in psp.scenebeta.com
Right now it is not possible to download or install homebrew, but in a few weeks, it will.
I'm working in the cookie-based login of that website, I made that in the old lua version, so this time is easier ;-)
In the homebrew downloader, right now you can view the homebrew list (apps, games and emulators), and view a detailed description about each homebrew program.
You can also search in the list by pressing the "triangle" button (The games list
has more than 800 entries, so you'll probably need it ;-) )
Nevertheless, it has other functions like:
- Filebrowser with:
-PNG image viewer. With scrolling for large images.
-Simple text file viewer. With auto line-breaks :-D
-You can rename files with the "square" button.
-Simple searching with the "triangle" button.
-Detects file type, not only by the extension. For example, if you have an MP3 file without any extension, the program know that it is actually an MP3 file.
- Self updating through the network ;-)
- Options menu with:
-Select wether you want to show the initial splash or not.
-Show memory stick free space.
-Restore default config.
This project is right now very initial, I'm looking forward to add add more functions, like:
-In the filebrowser, show other image types, unRar files, run eboots, copy, move and delete files... etc.
-"Check Gmail" function (simple but useful). It would notify about new gmail messages (I'll use the gmail RSS feed ;-) )
-Probably, when I finish the scenebeta.com full support, I'll add support for other psp homebrew comunities.
How to install:
Download the RAR file:
UnRar and copy the downPSP_C folder to your /PSP/GAME/ folder.
- X select/view/change (only in the config menu)
- O back
- Triangle search (in homebrew list and in filebrowser)
- Square rename file (in filebrowser)
You need to have a wireless connection in order to view the homebrew lists and to use the network update
