    Launchpad is a modification of "Whats new" section in PS3 XMB. Until now you have seen latest PSN offers placed there, but after installing this add-on this section will show games from your internal and external hdd. Until now, it was a Rebug firmware exclusive add-on for the XMB. Exclusive as there is a need of additional task to maintain on every single firmware, which was the main reason of "one cfw exclusivity". But now developer @DeViL303 decided to add compatibility to every most known 4.81 firmwares. But please keep in mind that still there is no support for older versions of newly added firmwares. So this will only work on 4.81 custom firmware listed below.


    This add-on require installed FULL edition of latest Webman MOD.

    • WebMAN Launchpad v0.15
      • Support added for Playerpk420's 4.81 v1.00 Cobra CFW. So this v0.15 installer now supports Rebug 4.80.1 REX , Ferrox 4.81 v1.00 Cobra, and Playerpk420's 4.81 v1.00 Cobra.
      • If installed on Playerpk420's 4.81 Cobra CFW it will fix the missing icons on the in-game XMB.(See cfw settings)
      • If you ONLY use the option to uninstall on Playerpk420's 4.81 Cobra CFW it will fix the missing icons too.
      • If installed or uninstalled on any of the supported CFW's it will add support for XMBM+/XMBPD.
      • As usual it requires webMAN Mod (1.45.02 or higher recommended).
      • Users of v0.14 on other CFW's don't need to update, only new CFW support added.

      WebMAN Launchpad v0.14
      • Support added for Ferrox 4.81 CFW. So this v0.14 installer now supports Rebug 4.80.1 REX and Ferrox 4.81 v1.00 Cobra)
      • Installing this on Ferrox 4.81 v1.00 will make all icons blue.(If installed on Rebug 4.80 the icons will not change)
      • When you install this on Ferrox it will add support for XMBM+/XMBPD as an added bonus. :)
      • Added Translations for the "Launching" string in 7 languages.
      • Changed Launchpad sprx files so they now call custom title entries in the RCOs and also it now has a custom icon filename, this will make it easier to toggle the Launchpad should the need arise, as the original icon and titles will still be in place, so the RCOs wont need swapping.
      • Added the new custom entries in the RCOs to the bottom of the text files for Launchpad, so it matches the mod above, this will make it easier to translate in the future.
      • Fixed missing Launchpad title on in-game XMB.
      • Changed title so it has a lowercase "w" to match "webMAN Games".
      • Added a new warning to the installer that basically says to make sure you install the right version for your CFW, and to use it at your own risk.

    • Supported Firmware:
      • Playerpk420's 4.81 v1.00 Cobra
      • Ferrox 4.81 v1.00 Cobra
      • Rebug 4.80.1 REX/D-REX

      Not Supported:
      • Any not mentioned above!

      Thanks for this update
      @DeViL303 Is there a default path for locals covers ?
    2. DeViL303
      It uses the same path as multiman and the "jpg" extension.

      Im sure he is busy but @aldostools might someday add a check box to webMAN mod setup that allows you to select between jpg and png or even select a cover path for Launchpad covers . If not or until then you would have to disable launchpad.xml generation and manually do a find and replace on your wm_launchpad.xml, replacing the "jpg" with "png". You could change the path this way too of course. it will work fine like that if you don't move/change your games.
    3. aldostools
      Actually it searches the images with the following extensions: .jpg, .png, .JPG, .PNG.
      The search order changes dynamically depending on the extension found in the previous search.

      For the title ids, it searches .JPG and .PNG (only upper case and in that order).

      So if you only have PNGs in your system, it will use them.

      The plugin has a preference for JPG because most of the packs available online are .JPG due the smaller size of the files.

      For a custom path, you can specify it in LANG_EN.TXT (or the file for the selected language)

      COVERS_PATH [/dev_hdd0/WMLP_COVERS]

      Note: The covers are the same for XML, HTML grid, slider and LaunchPad.
      T.A.U and DeViL303 like this.
