VPKEditor 1.1, give your homebrew LiveArea the makeover you want
Not all of the useful homebrew releases come in the form of native files that you can run on your console. Sometimes they come in the form of tools you can use on your computer to help you with the stuff you do on your console – QCMA being one of the prime examples in this category.
This time however, I am here to tell you guys of a new tool called VPKEditor by developer qberty. This tool has a simple purpose: to let you edit the look of the LiveArea background and icon of any vpk file you want! The best part of this tool is that not only can it edit that part of any homebrew (you can finally add your own graphics to Moonlight Vita or RetroArch easily) and this tool is also cross-platform, supporting Windows, Mac and Linux! Oh, and it can also edit the vpk files dumped with MaiTool!
What is VPKEditor?
VPKEditor is a tool for your computer that allows you to change the icons and background for both your homebrew and games dumped using MaiDumpTool. It was created by developer qberty and supports all OSes making it usable for pretty much everyone. If you aren’t happy about the look of some of your games or homebrew, this will allow you to do something about it!
- Opens any VPK file designed for the PS Vita
- Lets you change the icon, the livearea icon, and the livearea background image
- Automatically converts the images (from JPEG or PNG) to the correct bit-depth (8 bit) supported by the PS Vita
- Mai Dump ZIP support
If there’s enough interest, I’ll continue to work on adding more features to it (like editing the template.xml with your own text).
To get your hands on VPKEditor, all you have to do is go to the developer’s website here and click on the download link for your OS.
