This is an application that will "Emulate" how your XMB will look on your computer before actually compiling your RCO's and flashing them to your PSP. This application will let you view your XMB and it's icons, backgrounds and colours. This application is meant to help you preview your XMB without actually flashing it. With that said this program doesn't even read your Flash0 and doesn't need your PSP to run. This program will not read RCO's or have any functionality, it will read BMP files and will arrange them so they look just like your XMB.
Source code is included for anyone who knows how to program with Turing. Because this is an ALPHA version the source code is very minor and limited. You can use the source code as long as you give credit to me and the respective owners of the included images.
With this program you can preview two different themes at once. In the root folder you will find XMB One and XMB Two. XMB One stores files for the first XMB and XMB Two stores files for the second XMB. To use:
1- Make some icons with a white background, with dimension 64X64 and in the BMP format
2- Make some wallpaper images in the BMP format and with dimension 480X272.
3- Rename icons to:
1- Settings Icon
2- Photo Icon
3- Music Icon
4- Video Icon
5- Game Icon
6- Network Icon
Background- Wallpaper Image
4-Place your icons in the XMB One or XMB Two folder
5- Run XMB Emulator.EXE.
6- If you satisfied with your XMB compile your topmenu_plugin.rco with a compiler.
7- Flash to, Flash0:/vsh/resource/, with a flasher.
This program is still in it's ALPHA version in the future I will be including more features. The features I hope to include:
-Sub Sub-XMB Preview
-File check/Size check- This will help you make right sized icons so that you can make non-corrupt files and have icons fit in their positions.
-Menu Names- This will help you further see what your XMB will look like with your names.
-Program Main Menu- To help you navigate through the program
-Integrated guides and references
-Support for XMB click sounds
-Support for simple navigation functions
-Support for wave animation
-A simple file flasher through Flash0/1 USB
-Include a RCO compiler
-Files in the "Core Files" folder should not be deleted. If any of these files are deleted the program will give you an error.
-The XMB One and XMB Two folders should not be deleted. If even one folder is deleted the program will not run.
-Images must be in the 8-bit bitmap format. Images with their information stored in the ALPHA layer should not be used with this program. Files extracted from RCO's will not work properly with this version of the program.
All credit goes to me for programming and compiling. Credit for Icons and backgrounds go to their respective owners (I forget who created them, if you created some of the images please e-mail me at JessieFin@hotmail.com
This version includes support for Main XMB icons and XMB wallpaper.
