Our Homebrew Database, /Downloads
, now accepts user submissions.
No login is required for now, and you can :- Add new Homebrews
- Add New versions for existing Homebrews
- Add additonal download links for an existing version of a homebrew
(In /Downloads, homebrews are categorized in a "tree": a Game can have several versions, and a version can have several download links)
By adding your homebrew in /Downloads, you get better visibility for your homebrew, and your homebrew will be regularly displayed to thousands of people in the "random homebrew" section on the forums. Basically, it's yet another way to promote your work and give it high visibility.
You can also add other people's homebrew if, like me, you'd like to see this database grow as the "ultimate" PSP homebrew database.
Important note: because no login is required, entries are moderated. It can take several days for me to review your entries, please be patient.Adding a new Homebrew
To add a new homebrew, you will find a Enter new Game/App
link directly on the /Downloads site
Once you click on that link, just enter the information for your homebrew: homebrew description, version information, and a download link (if needed, you can add more versions and download links later, once your entry has been approved)Important:
Some fields such as the image url and the thumbnail url are not necessary, but strongly recommended: people are much more interested in a homebrew if they can see a screenshot. Please note that I do not provide hosting for the images or for your homebrew for now, but this might change in the future.Important
: The download link can be either a direct link, or a link to the page hosting the download (it can be your home page, or a megaupload page, etc...). Please no "cash" links in the type of ads.fly.Important:
PC applications are accepted too, as long as they are directly related to the PSP, the PS3, or the Vita. Anything not related to the PSP/PS3/Vita will be rejected. I am not sure about themes, for now they are not accepted, but if there is some demand, I'll think about it.
You will then see the following screen, please wait for a few days until I review your entry:Important:
Please enter your entry carefully. The site will not check for your typos or mistakes. An entry that has issues (download link not working, etc...) will take more time to be reviewed, or might be simply rejected.Adding a new Version or new download links to an existing homebrew
To add information on an existing homebrew, you can go directly to that homebrew's page (for example, http://www.wololo.net/downloads/index.php/download/880
). The page shows you the homebrew information, followed by information about the latest version, followed by download links.
The version information and the download links section have a "+" symbol, which allows you to add the necessary information: clicking on the + symbol in the version box will allow you to add a new version (and associated download links). Clicking on the "+" symbol in the downloads section will allow you to add download links for the current version.FAQI entered a new game several days ago, but when I go to the game's page, it says the game is pending review
I manually check each entry, it can takes several days before I review your entryI entered a new game several days ago, but when I go to the game's page, it says the page does not exist (error 404)
This means your entry has been rejected, and we deleted it. Reasons for your entry being rejected include:
- Your entry was not for a homebrew or a utility (it was spam, or warez, or a link to something unrelated ,etc...)
- Your entry was missing the correct information (download link, etc...)
- Your entry was a duplicate of an existing homebrew (in that case, we do our best to update the existing homebrew with the finrmation you added)
- We tested the homebrew and it didn't work on any of our test machines
- The information about the homebrew was inaccurate/incomplete (example: you claimed to be the author, and we found out you actually just copy/pasted somebody else's work)
This is currently a beta, I want to see how things go, please let me know what additional features/fixes you'd like (I know it's still a bit cranky, there's *lots* of stuff I want to add, but I need to prioritize based on my free time)
I hope you'll enjoy these new features
