There are certain times where we here at wololo.net fail to cover certain homebrews because there isn’t much to write about some and we don’t want article to be a vehicle for ads with barely any text. However, sometimes we don’t have much to work with and we’d rather skip a smaller release than make horrible content.
With that in mind, we have decided to sometimes try to group releases in article so we can feature everyone as much as possible and give as many homebrew releases as possible their day in the sun. This time, ButtonSwap by developer Scorpeg and QR Code Reader by linhtinh11 are the featured homebrews.
What is ButtonSwap
Ever got annoyed when you were playing a translated game like Kancolle Kai or I am Setsuna due to the fact you keep forgetting than in Japan X is O and O is X? Well fear no more! ButtonSwap allows you to solve that little problem with a bonus, you can choose which games it is active on! That makes it one of the must-have plugins for taiHENkaku, especially if you play Japanese imports/fanslated games often.
Instructions for ButtonSwap
Put “buttonswap.suprx” in ‘tai’ folder in the root of your Vita.
Change config.txt in that directory to load plugin for title of your choice by adding new lines like below:
# titleid for your game (this one is for Root//Letter for example)*PCSB01019
After that just run the game and your buttons should be swapped (this would work only for this game).
What is QR Code Reader
QR Code Reader is one of those niche little utilities that some people will enjoy for its usefulness and does a simple job. It allows you to scan a QR Code and the opens the Vita browser to wherever the QR leads. Hopefully some of you will find a use for this tool.
Instructions for QR Code Reader
Scan a QR Code
It will automatically open the browser for you wherever the QR Code links
