    Updatex1 (Feb. 6): sLaunch v0.9 has been updated to support additional display ratios, see details below .
    Original Article (Feb 5):
    Developer deank is back with another new feature for webMAN, this time around a new UI for accessing your games on the XMB, we have seen DeViL303's webMAN Luanchpad and this like that XMB mods gives you a new UI, unlike wM launchpad it does not utilize the "What's New" area's but launches a new menu to mount your games, as you can view in the pic (& video demo) included of this new User Interface dubbed sLaunch In the tabs found in this article i have added some of test build post from deank to give more insight on this features development, plus developer Aldostools has a test version of webMAN MOD that is supporting the sLaunch feature, see additional info on that tab included in this article below

    • sLaunch 0.9: http://deanbg.com/slaunch_preview.zip


      This video is of the original POC (v0.1)

      It is now usable (still only in 1080p/1080i). It supports up to 1000 games in 100 pages.
      • :dir left:, :dir right:, :dir down:, :dir up: = to navigate,
      • :but l1: / :but r1: = Prev/Next page,
      • :but x: = Load title,
      • :but cir: = Exit to XMB.

      It is stable and shouldn't crash like the previous version. :)

      -------- Update 1 (Feb 6) --------

      The link is updated with support for 480p/576p/720p displays. Because of the biliniar downscaling the text at the bottom of the screen doesn't look very nice in 480/576 but that's the best for now.

      The memory usage is now down to 10MB and is completely rewritten.

      http://deanbg.com/slaunch_preview.zip

      For best results always wait for webMAN to show a popup message that it is ready/loaded and then use the sLaunch.

      Source is also updated ( http://deanbg.com/sLaunch_0.9.zip )

      webMAN is also updated to fix boot-crash when wM is set to "no-delays" (before XMB is fully loaded and it is trying to load the last title).

      Make sure that you use the LATEST webMAN+sLaunch and there should be no freezes or other issues (at least I didn't get). Tested with NTFS+NETSRV+sLaunch (fully loaded).

      p.s. Updated webMAN again... all should be ok now.

    • As promised the other day:

      I hope you like it. If used, it removes the need to use system plugins for mounting games. Also there is no need for "My Games" in the Game column. sLaunch can be started from XMB by pressing a button - loads in 1 second and it is just 11KB. It is very simple to use and fast.

    • It is just proof-of-concept, but if someone wishes to give it a try:

      slaunch_preview.jpg

      You'll have to add slaunch.sprx to your boot_plugins.txt. It requires this new webMAN, so you'll have to use both. After you get your games refreshed at least once sLaunch will pick them up. To start sLaunch from XMB hold the "START" button.

      This is a preview version and it will only show 1 page of 10 games, although all are detected. When I'm ready with this new interface it can become part of webMAN, so there will be no need for separate plugin, but for PoC it is what it is.

      IMPORTANT: THIS TEST VERSION WORKS ONLY IN 1920x1080p/i (FullHD). Do not try it if your PS3 is set to different output.

      It can be a frontend to webMAN or webMAN MOD as long it finds "/dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp/slaunch.bin" which is a simple file with "NAME", "ICON", "PATH". Once you load a game it sends the request to webMAN/webMAN MOD. :)

      :)

    • Setting up sLaunch on webMAN MOD v1.46.02 FULL

      1-Download wMM from the link above and upload it to /dev_hdd0/plugins/webftp_server_full.sprx

      2-Also download slaunch.sprx from http://deanbg.com/slaunch_preview.zip

      3-Extract the zip and upload slaunch.sprx to /dev_hdd0/plugins/slaunch.sprx

      4-Download /dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt, edit the file and add the line: /dev_hdd0/plugins/slaunch.sprx

      The file should look like this:
      /dev_hdd0/plugins/webftp_server_full.sprx
      /dev_hdd0/plugins/wm_vsh_menu.sprx
      /dev_hdd0/plugins/slaunch.sprx

      5-Upload boot_plugins.txt and restart.

      6-Refresh XML and hold down the :but start: button for near 3 seconds.

      NOTE: If you prefer, you can put the files in the root of /dev_hdd0 instead of /dev_hdd0/plugins
      But you will need to use the proper path in boot_plugins.txt

      Only thing I've noticed so far is that it loads the game previous to the one selected but no other problems so far

      It is fixed now and the link is updated with the new sprx (and with key-repeat).

      p.s. Just redownload the zip. It has proper key-repeat now.

      I wrote it in just 2 days, so there are not a lot of comments (not that they are needed). It is based on the vsh_menu, so you're all familiar with it. Most of the functions are changed, it works with the frame-buffer and there is jpeg decoder.

      Next few days I'll try to make it work in 720p/576p/480p but I don't promise anything.

      It is not CPU intensive at all, the RSX is paused, so both processors will actually cool down while in sLaunch. :) It doesn't do frame-flips nor writes to the whole screen all the time. It only writes the changes it needs to visualize, hence it can achieve about 320MB/s (about 80Mpix / 40fps @ 1080p) if the whole screen must be redrawn (which is not needed :) ).

      Dean :)

      Wow, that looks so quick to load... amazing work.
      Can't wait to see if you get it working on 576i/480i so I can try it on my old Sony Triniton.
      Things are looking so promising on the PS3 front, right when you thought it would die. Love it.
      Maybe the start of a good retroarch launcher using jpg artwork?? ;)

      It seems more like a webMAN issue (not sLaunch). I'm trying to find out what is going on.
