Half Byte Loader revision 65
I’m now confident that HBL loads a fair amount of homebrews. It is far from being complete of course, but we are improving it on a regular basis, and it is basically in the state in which I was expecting it to be the day we would announce it publicly.
I can run a modified version of Wagic flawlessly with the HBL on a PSPGo with firmware 6.20. The current version of Wagic (0.11.0) should run fine with HBL as long as you delete the files Res/sound/*.mp3, but if it doesn’t, please be patient and wait for Wagic 0.12, which will definitely be more compatible with the PSPGo.
There is still lots of work to do with the half byte loader, but I’m happy with it enough to open a dedicated page for it here: http://wololo.net/hbl
This page will contain binaries compiled by me. I will update it at the same time as I upload any of my changes to the SVN, so you can expect that page to contain the latest version for HBL before any other site! (whenever I’m the one submitting changes, obviously…)
Actually, this time, the page contains a binary that is not yet in the SVN, (although it will be in a few minutes), revision 65, so you basically get an exclusive HBL from the future if you happen to read this post a few miutes after I posted it 🙂
To celebrate, here’s a video of a PSPGo running Doom. Previous versions of the HBL already allowed this, but it’s always cool to confirm it visually 🙂
