Calling all PSP/ePSP developers: The community needs you!

As it turns out, the PSP scene isn’t exactly dead, the PSP scene has just moved on to the Vita, as we get more exploits (VHBL,eCFW) for the Vita, we need more homebrew developers, the Vita’s PSP emulator itself has a lot of potential (even at the lowest clock speed, the emulator is faster than the max 333 MHz of the PSP), to help beginners to develop homebrew with the PSPSDK, a wiki has been setup which can be accessed here, we need the help of all developers to construct a good and more usable documentation for the PSPSDK.

Everyone who has some knowledge in programming for the PSP is requested to help out.

The wiki is aimed at providing documentation of things like what different functions do, how to call them, the exceptions that they can throw, in plain English so that everyone can understand them easily.

We also plan to provide code snippets to make tasks simpler, tutorials etc.

I ask everyone who can help to help out, this is for the good of the community and because we might not really be seeing a native PSVita exploit any time soon, this is the only way, at the moment, we are content with old PSP homebrew but we will need more, so please, everyone who can help, please help out.

Please contact me (hgoel0974) or NNNRT on the /talk forums for any questions.

    “Everyone who has some knowledge in programming for the PSP is requested to help out.”
    pretty arrogant and useless repetitive post to me .. devs do w/e they want, stop crying all the time

      I think he meant “requested” as in “please”, not as an order. I mean, even in English that word is fuzzy

        ok but I mean there have been quite several posts about that already, this time the situation is the same as before so I don’t see much point in ‘uniting’ people at this precise moment more than any other :p

          It is just a coincidence that I came up with this at this time.

          I didn’t come up with this as a way to ‘unite’ people but as a way to make the PSPSDK easier for beginners.

        yes, I meant please, not as an order but a choice, if you can then please help, it still is your choice.

            The best ones that I found were at pspslimhacks, a simple google search for ‘pspsdk programming tutorials’ will get you o the site.

    I wouldn’t mind the PSP scene starting back up. By the time I got a decent grip on programming everyone left.

    “even at the lowest clock speed, the emulator is faster than the max 333 MHz of the PSP”

    Oh I didn’t know the Vita speeds up the clock of the PSP emulator. You sure about that?

    1. hgoel0974’s avatar

      It is known that it is such, TN said it himself, his TN-C upgrade said that he had found out that the PSP emulator was faster than the PSP and the above statement as well.

    i think you are just posting this to show your site.. the web is full of pspsdk tutorials and documentation, no need for another site. or you just want to be part of something?

    1. hgoel0974’s avatar

      I am not trying to advertise. All the information on the internet is not always easy to understand.
      Besides, what do you think I mean by

      “The wiki is aimed at providing documentation of things like what different functions do, how to call them, the exceptions that they can throw, in plain English so that everyone can understand them easily.”

      I myself am totally sick of having to spend hours searching on the internet just to figure out how to show the OSK or to connect to the internet in the SDK and I know many more who have the same problem, it is just too tedious, this would help users to sort out everything easily

    I have tried developing homebrew for PSP before and i found that the biggest deterrent is that there is no complete reference which covers all the functions of the sdk, or maybe there is and i just couldn’t find it…. ?

        unless it’s this one – http://psp.jim.sh/pspsdk-doc/
        I don’t really think that documentation is complete.

        1. hgoel0974’s avatar

          yes, it s that one and yes, it isn’t complete, it is outdated too.

          I am also updating the SDK, as ePSPSDK, expect a release soon.

          Reply

          1. Name *’s avatar

            But will this new sdk still be compatible with psp?
            Please try to make a good documentation for it… It will encourage lot of developers if only there is a good documentation.

    PSP HB <3

    While I still find exploiting the Vita's emulator overhyped (just get a cheap PSP for PSP HB for crying out loud) I'd love to see the PSP community pick up momentum again.

    This also brings up an older idea I had but never did:
    Video tutorials on PSP deving….
