MegaMan: The Power War (Episode 1)

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_v_umTp0i0pg/SJxKr3QCEcI/AAAAAAAABCk/syI9NfVSG_k/s400/yMega_Man__The_Power_Battle.png

Coder NickyP has released MegaMan: The Power War (Episode 1), it's an OpenBOR modification based on the MegaMan Power Battle/Fighters games. This have five characters and an ally for every fighter.
~Gameplay~

As I've stated above, this mod's gameplay style gets its inspiration from the MegaMan Power Battle/Fighters games. So, those who have played those games before will know exactly what to do.. to those who haven't: this is basically an arcade-style boss rush game.

Initially the game will appear to only be for two players. To add more, simply go to Options -> System Options to change the max amount of players!

~Controls~

This mod uses the attack1-4, special, and jump buttons.

A description of what each does:
Attack1 - Fires normal buster shot
Attack2 - Summon a helper (more on this soon)
Attack3 and Attack4 - Dodge (you can also dodge by pushing Forward twice and Attack1)
Special - For most characters, this will preform a charge shot.

Remember to set these controls in Options->Control Options->Setup Player #!

PSP users: Simply use the eboot I have provided in .rar. Place MPW1.pak into PSP/Game/MMPW/Paks

PSN License Manager v0.22

PS Network

Light_AleX’s PSN License Manager 0.22 released.

Use PSN License Manager to swap in and out licenses eliminating the need to deactivate/reactivate your hand-held; you know, when purchasing PSN goodies from different regions and such. PSN License Manager incorporates a “slot” system (up to 30) allowing multiple licenses to be saved in designated slots.

Don’t get the wrong idea now — PSN License Manager is not intended for distributing and/or using illegitimate licenses. It won’t happen. See the readme for usage instructions.

MyMenu v1.3 released



Jacol Beyros has released MyMenu 1.3.

Changes:
* Uses zetsubou
* New Icon
* Customizable GUI image
* New exit button.
* No longer uses/deletes C:\temp folder
* Can be installed anywhere
* Prompts save name based off of name of .mym
* File open dialog starts in the Working Directory

The main reason for this release was the new Icon by Aeox. I just
threw in all of this other stuff for the hell of it.

For the customizable gui, you need to find a .png image, rename it to “mym.png” and copy it over the pre-existing one in your MyMenu directory. This new image is your new MyMenu gui.

The exit button is acting a little funny, I blame AutoShit. The far right two pixels will allow you to click the button.

If you use your temp folder, then you no longer have to worry about its imminent deletion caused by MyMenu. It is safe.

No longer needs to be installed to C:\mymenu. Can be installed anywhere. This parts not exactly tested, but I’m not going to lose any sleep because of worry.

If your .mym is called “kickass wii theme.mym”, then your finished .csm file’s name will be prompted as “kickass wii theme.csm”.

The file search will open in your last used folder, making it easy to find all of your .app files and .mym files.

Note: this is not a release by Xuzz! I can’t confirm that it works properly, though it does at least install correctly and start up.

one that loaded for Freedom: 250, 249, 36, whatever IOS the installer got loaded with

I know the GFX isn't fancy but I'm no artist that's why I made the GFX loadable from
FAT so anyone can make a nice GFX.
In future version it will also be possible to change the positions of items.


WARNING:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE AUTHOR CAN NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THIS TOOL MIGHT CAUSE!

-Tons of USBGecko debug output

more features are planned


Known Bugs:

The Savefiles Export/WAD export lists sometimes display incorrectly just scroll down
or up to fix that.


Install:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please copy the freedom folder on your SD/SDHC card otherwise you won't have any GFX!
Run the dol with any loader you want and follow the on-screen instructions.


Covers:

Wadder 3.0 News

For all of you who enjoys customizing your Wii (like me) here are the news from Xuzz (formerly icefire):

WADder 3.0 is finished. I just need some experts in packaging to help me get an exe made of the python! If you want to try it out just come on IRC and ask. New feature: no temp files created at all! Completely done in memory (even U8, WAD, TPL, etc)!

Other new thing: I wrote a NUS WAD Packer (and Downloader) that I will release as well once I figure out to pack the exes. This supports scripting (so you can save scripts for other people to download!), and even will create the scripts for you. It also has download queueing, decrypting of contents that works 100%, and performs a “wadinfo” on the resulting files. Also available for testing on IRC – though I’m pretty sure its bugless!

Coming straight from greg's (psp-hacks) words, here's the CTF Toll version 2...

I just tried this out [converting a CTF 5.00 theme to 5.50] with patpat’s new CTF Tool GUI v2…

My PSP: an all-capable Slim running 5.50 GEN-B; I’m also using this modified version of CXMB for 5.50 GEN.

But before you hit that download link patpatwarns us that the conversion process from 5.00 to 5.50 is still on beta and may not always work. But as the news source said, it worked perfectly fine.

ndsuperres - Image 1

Filippo Battaglia (pegasus2000) gives us his new application ndSuperRes, a demo of super-resolution algorithm running on PSP through Nanodesktop.

Super-resolution (SR) are techniques that in some way enhance the resolution of an imaging system. There are different views as to what is considered an SR technique: some consider only techniques that break the diffraction-limit of systems, while others also consider techniques that merely break the limit of the digital imaging sensor as SR. Filippo Battaglia at Visilab Research Center of the University of Messina has demonstrate the possibility of executing a SR algorithm on a simple embedded device as the Sony Playstation Portable. This result shall be possible through the use of Nanodesktop SDK. The program ndSuperRes is the homebrew that results from these researches and studies.
