    The newly released OpenBOR Plus port for the PS3 keeps on improving with the latest updates to the Game Engine coming from developer White Dragon, since the debut of this PS3 Homebrew (for CFW) there has been a number of improvements BGM Player Support, Increased Game Compatibility as games like He-Man and other with a larger Aspect Ratio now work in latest updates are just some of the enchantments to hit the port recently. Various elements are sure progressing nicely with this port since its inception and the issues overcame in development (see more about development here) have been great to witness, this dev is no doubt putting together a great and welcome addition to the PS3 Homebrew Library. What are some of your favorite games to play with this Game Engine?

      Is it against the law, if I ask where to find OpenBOR Games/ROMs ?
    3. STLcardsWS
      They are fan created games / complete remakes on an Open Source Engine.
      So its okay..

      cool! I have used OpenBOR before, good fun.
      before I waste my time looking up outdated info. what is possible with this gameplay wise?
      'Double Dragon 2 NES' style levels or Battletoads style hover bikes for example?
      a nice link to what this thing can do would be great.

      Edit: found the info i was looking for. Yes, DD2 NES/Battletoads style stuff is possible with OpenBOR

      For favorite games, these are the ones I've played all of the way through and recommend (others I can recommend but haven't played too much)...

      Bare Knuckle IV - Turn the Tide
      Fighting Street
      Marvel First Alliance 2
      Night Slashers X
      Simpsons Treehouse of Horror
      Super Final Fight Gold Plus

      Another one I have not tried but recommend - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Shell Shocked. Made by a guy named @White Dragon - if he won't plug his own work then I will. :)

      He-Man looks AMAZING, like you're playing the cartoon. This screenshot doesn't do it justice, but...

      He-Man DEMO - 0002.png

      The complete version of Kill Bill works now, too, apparently it was using an oddball resolution, too.

      EDIT - Hey, @White Dragon, I think I found a bug - if a pak has an ampersand (&) in its name, OpenBOR freezes on the splash screen. I had to rename a pak with a "&" in it, after that no more freezes.

      Thanks but this is not a bug. Ampersand is an illegal character for some OS into filenames. If windows supports ampersand, it can be that other OS can't support it into dir and filenames.
      In fact the code for windows is the same and it works well.
      So just avoid it ;)

      @White Dragon, does your mod work on PS3? I tried it, it got to 44% loaded, then it froze.

      Hmm, maybe I have an older version. I'll try again.

      I think a found an actual bug this time - if you save your settings as default, the next time you run OpenBOR it boots to a black screen. I did this 3 times, each time I deleted default.cfg and it worked again.

      Sorry, fixed! Thanks for report this bug!

      Do all of these games work on PS3?
    15. JediKnight007
      Yeah, I had an older version.

      @White Dragon, your mod is extremely impressive. Especially if it ever gets completed. :) I did noticed 2 things (may be PS3-only)...

      - some slowdown in Beach level (still playable, but maybe not with more than 1 player)
      - changing weapons with the Foot Soldier eventually caused an out-of-memory crash

      Thanks! I know these issues but 256 mb ram is really to low...

      ON windows and Android it works very well!
    18. JediKnight007
      I think I saw on Chrono Crash that you considered making a "lite" version of the mod...maybe that would work better on the PS3.

      On the new build, the default.cfg problem is gone, but the splash screen no longer appears. But that might be a good thing, the loading time seems slightly better. More paks seem to increase the loading time - I have over 100 mods, but I only keep like 30 or so in the Paks folder.

      It's ok, It works like android version.
      The logo is shown at first time. And every about 10 runs.
      And this new version has more fixes for core engine too!
