    Daedalusx64 Alpha 432 is available on the SVN.

    Changelog:
    [!]Reverted most of the changes from Revs 305, 316, and 318 (Fixes a couple crashes, speed regressions, and Mario Head stuttering bug )
    [+]Hash every third line of textures for updating (Faster Texture Update)
    [+]Re-added Dynarec Loop Optimization (Works in as many titles as it used to, but still causes problems/freezes in some)
    [+]Added Frame Skip 99 to debug build for testing
    [+]Added more settings to Texture Update
    [~]More comments will only show in Debug builds (Some messages still remain)

    Notes: GoldenEye No longer freezes on Runway or other levels, Mario Head no longer stutters without DD enabled. All speed regressions since 300 should be fixed now. Some reverted changes will be restored in future revs as speed/stability issues are worked out. This is a large commit and may have a few minor issues.

    via MyXMB

    These are compatable with Custom and Official firmwares 3.7X+

    It never really occurred to me until now that if you want to test large amounts of icon sets, you can just stick the entire pack in your theme folder! [ms0:/psp/theme] and delete the one's you don't want via the same way to select them.

    regarding this package, I honestly dont know anything about it's theme's authors or how many of them were made for 3.7X or converted to it, but it looks like a portion of them are from Sony.

    the package was recompressed to save optimal space (~3mb)

    i counted the themes in their amazing package.

    there's a total of 121 full themes, as well as another 50 or so fonts, waves, vol bars, icons, etc. all for 3.5X :thumbup: i recompressed their package so the download would be smaller (only by 2mb) so now it's 92mb, or 168 uncompressed.

    it covers a vast array of interests, games, shows, n movies, it's worth a peek

    Installation:
    1. have iRshell 3.60 or 3.61 installed first. Download it here.
    2. copy the 2 folders in the rar to your root, overwriting files

    Release notes:

    This is another maintenance release which fixes the incompatibility issues with CFW 3.52-3/4 from Team M33. To news posters, please retain the donation link.



    New Features:

    Now fully compatible with Team M33 3.52-3 & 3.52-4 CFWs.
    Enhance the alarm clock function to support PSP suspend mode which means the alarm will still be triggered while your PSP is under suspend mode (sleep mode). The alarm volume will always be at max and is independent of your PSP volume settings. You will still hear the alarm even if you've muted your PSP volume. Thanks to Adrahil for providing the alarmlib source code to illustrate how the magic is done.

    Work In Progress:

    The previous Youtube video by StoneCut showing the 2-player PS1 games via usbhostfs using 2 PC joysticks with remotejoy output is only a proof of concept. Having your PSP connected to a PC to play 2-player PS1 games may not be very useful.

    I'm currently working on 2-player PS1 game support via 2 PSPs using WiFi adhoc and I need to purchase a 2nd PSP for testing. If you want to help, you can use the following link to make a paypal donation.

    To show my appreciation, those who donate more than US$10 will be added to a private support forum from which you will have access to earlier beta builds and support. Since the release of iR Shell 3.6, I've received 2 donations. Thanks to Jeffrey Y. and Toan L.

    If you'd like to see the previous 2-player preview video again then check here:

    Donation Link:
    https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc...hk@hotmail.com

    be sure to donate if you are willing and able

    Here is, for the most part, what this release fixes:
    I'd just like to point out that 3.52 M33-3 and M33-4 currently do not work properly with iR Shell and cause all sorts of problems, mostly related to ISO/CSO launching.

    For the time being please do not update to anything newer than 3.52 M33-2 to get the most use out of iR Shell. The technical reason for this is that the new UMD video player in M33 firmware collides with iR Shell's mp3 player in RAM. Don't worry, a fix is in testing. There will be an updated version at some point that should fix these issues. Please don't ask when, we don't know.

    according to this article, "upscale PCs and playstation 3's" are the only systems capable of rendering 4D games at playable speeds

    We all know what 3D graphics are - length, width & depth, but how many know what 4D graphics are? If you are one of the millions of people thinking 'What the %&$* are 4D graphics?', don't be alarmed. You've already seen them. Shocking isn't it? We all remember Kutaragi proclaiming not too long ago that PS3 would utilize 4D graphics, but what exactly did he mean?

    4D, from a developer’s point of view, is is the progression of Life in time. It is where every tangible object in your game is living and constantly changing. As a result, change becomes an integral part of 4D graphics.

    But how does all of this become possible? The answer is the dynamic rendering of procedural textures. Sounds complicated, but it's not. Let me explain; Procedural textures are textures which are linked to an algorithm. Instead of the texture being drawn pixel by pixel, you define the way these pixels have to be lit to produce the texture you want.

    When the procedural texture is placed somewhere, you utilize an engine for actually generating these bitmap textures. They have life. They can change in a way you define them, especially through time. In a lot of the current games, the randomized textures method is used. Developers use one bitmap and just map it on randomly in the environment to create the design for that specific area. Every texture is not defined or unique. So, the method to create procedural textures allows for more control.

    Allegorithmic is a utility set which allows an extensive realization of procedural textures. With it you define the procedures way using MaPZone, and then use ProFX to rasterize the images, producing the final result to be displayed by a renderer or a game engine.

    for the full article and a couple video demonstrations of the sexy 4D graphics, click the link at the top of the post :thumbup:

    Edit aug 31st:

    for an "almost full explaination" of what 4D and 5D is, read this:

    continue a search for a text
    - 0000017 [ALL] Added a text search system. It supports up to 30 chars, and can search ASCII/UNICODE/ASCII+UNICODE
    encoding and can be case sensitive/unsensitive
    - [ALL] The text search system can autosense if it has to make unicode or ascii codes (unicode codes skips the second byte).
    A codeline is made for each char and the current char is copied as value.
    - [ALL] changed the space used by the db reading functions to <= 128kb (this space is alloched during bootup and freed after
    that)

    right on!! cheat away
