    Default Comic book viewer (CBR) Search / dev request..

    Hi Gang

    I've been having a good old trawl of the internet for CBR viewers on the psp and cant seem to find any..

    Having scanned in a few of my old favourite comics from when I was a lad, I wondered if anyone has found or even knocked up an application that can view them...

    There are a couple of other people in far flung forums tucked away in corners of the internet looking for the same thing - it's basically a jpg viewer that reads inside a rar (renamed to .cbz instead of .rar) file and allows you to switch between the pictures sequentially - I guess the shoulder buttons could be used for "flicking" left and right and the analogue pad for moving around the page....

    Windows equivalent - http://www.geocities.com/davidayton/CDisplay

    Thanks for your time !

    Hrmph - well It seems i had a blind spot / smudge / whatever when googling this : PeP viewer seems best and rar decompression would be the sticking point for getting this working from a dev point of view, so I may well have been wasting my time (and yours)

    If anyone does have any better suggestions : great if not - no worries, i'll bash on with pep !

    Hi Mustang

    I had EXACTLY the same problem as you.
    This was until I stumbled on the truly brilliant piece of homebrew: PePViewer. Change the extension from .cbr to .rar and from .cbz to .zip and unrar onto your PSP. No resizing whatsoever is necessary.
    I currently have 2gb of comics on my PSP. They are displayed beautifully and crisply. I highly recommend this program.

    Good Luck!
