5h4d0w's Plugin Manager v1.6
My Entry into the PSP GENESIS Competition.
Tested on 5.00 M33, 5.03 GEN, 5.50 GEN, 6.20 TN and 6.35 PRO.
You can enable and disable plugins without a computer.
Works on PSP GOs.
You can load plugin .txt files from three locations: "ms0:/", "ef0:/", and "flash0:/".
Includes a built-in configuration editor. The editor is password-protected. The password will be encrypted.
Note: The config is saved separately from the plugin .txt files (Pressing start in the config editor will not save plugins, and vice-versa).
Can add, edit, remove, toggle, copy/paste, and move plugins in all three .txt files.
Adding a plugin is as easy as browsing for the file.
Only loads from .txt files that exist. If they don't exist, it creates them for you.
You can revert your changes by pressing [SELECT].
Gives the option to auto-exit from the app once you save your changes.
Allows you to decide which options are available (by editing the config).
(Example: You give a friend your PSP for a while but don't want him messing with your plugins, so you disable what you don't want him to do.)
Nice pop-up menu.
Can be "themed".
Will strip-out any empty lines in your text files, making them look cleaner.
You can view a short description of each plugin or add one if one isn't found.
You can load the Recovery Menu from the app.

I hope you like it!
How the new "theme" format works:
Each color is separated onto its own line.
Line 1) Unselected/Regular Text
Line 2) Selected Text
Line 3) Disabled Options
Line 4) Other Text/UI Elements
Line 5) Background Color
Line 6) Will eventually be a background image file. Doesn't exist yet.
A line consists of three sets of digits, separated by an "R", a "G", and a "B".
The digits between the "R" and the "G" is the RED value.
The digits between the "G" and the "B" is the GREEN value.
The digits between the "B" and the end of the line is the BLUE value.
To make something RED, you would write "R255G0B0"; A red value of 255, and green and blue values of 0.
- Version History:
EDIT: V1.1 uploaded.
Now able to read from "ef0:/" (you can make GOs load from "ms0:/" if you want to)
Changed UI a bit (shows all three plugin types and highlights the current one)
Some small fixes
EDIT: v1.1-1 uploaded.
Now will only load the .txt files that exist. If they don't exist, it makes them.
Bugfix: Would try to load from ef0:/ even on a regular PSP. You would have to set forceMS0 to 1 to fix it.
EDIT: v1.1-2 uploaded.
Fixed major bugs related to saving and loading.
Optimization of load function.
EDIT: v1.1-3 uploaded.
Splash screen updated.
Fixed a few bugs.
EDIT: V1.2b uploaded.
Added built-in configuration editor
+ The editor is password-protected
+ The password is encrypted
The config file is now stored in "flash3:/"
+ Previous users may delete "config.cfg" from the app directory
The color scheme is now stored in "theme.cfg" in the app directory
Fixed multiple bugs (Thanks everyone who reported them!)
+ Introduced new bugs
The config file is saved separately from the plugin texts, saving one will not save the other
No, saving to "flash3:/" will NOT brick your PSP. There is ZERO% chance of a brick.
EDIT: v1.2b1 uploaded.
Fixed a huge screw up (it actually WORKS now).
EDIT: v1.2b2 uploaded.
Now only loads up to 20 plugins per .txt file. I'm pretty sure that this is the PSP's limit, if not, deal with it
Added ability to copy and paste plugins between .txt files
Added ability to disable requiring the password
+ This is OFF by default; You will need to make a password, then turn it on
Added support for multiple "themes"
+ Added ability to select theme in the config editor
+ Themes are sorted alphabetically with the exception of the default, which is always first
+ Theme format is now RxxxGxxxBxxx instead of a LUA color definition
Scrolling past the final plugin or option will reset to the first. Scrolling back past the first will reset to the last.
~ Why did I not do this in the first place?
Reverted UI changes to the menu. Selected options are highlighted like they used to be instead of showing a ">"
+ Some other changes I don't feel like listing
EDIT: v1.3 uploaded.
Now includes a file browser for selecting a plugin to add. No more typing out the path to the plugin
+ Shows a device chooser on PSP GOs if there is a memory stick inserted (ef0 or ms0)
+ You can only select a ".prx" file to add
~ The controls are pretty simple, up/down to scroll through items, cross to select an item, and circle to close the browser
There is now a confirmation on plugin removal
Thanks to Genesis Forum user Halvhjearne for testing the browser and for suggesting the removal check!
EDIT: v1.3_1 uploaded.
Quick bugfix (may fix the PSP GO browser issue)
EDIT: v1.3_2 uploaded.
Fixed bug where browser would not enable a new plugin
Fixed bugs in the config editor
EDIT: v1.4 uploaded.
+ Pressing triangle in the browser acts as a shortcut to the previous directory
+ The browser now loops around on itself
+ The browser now displays when you can scroll up or down in a directory ("/\" and "\/")
+ Pressing left/right in the browser and main plugin display now scrolls constantly (great for huge folders/plugin lists)
~ The app will NOT loop around while holding left or right. This in intentional, not a bug.
+ "flash0:/" plugin loading implemented
+ The forceMS0 option has been removed and replaced with a device selector
+ The device selector works the same as the theme selector, you cycle with left/right and apply with cross (X)
~ You can choose between: "ms0:/", "ef0:/" if on a GO, and "flash0:/"
EDIT: v1.4_1 uploaded.
+ Removed an alert for adding a plugin. Now it only asks to enable or not.
+ Added an option to set the browser to auto-start in "/seplugins/" instead of the root.
+ Now uses backslash quotes for some strings (prints [bla "blablabla" bla] instead of [bla 'blablabla' bla]).
+ All config options that are strings also have quotes.
~ Not really an improvement but it looks better this way (IMO).
EDIT: v1.4_2 uploaded.
+ Put back the plugin addition confirmation.
+ Now displays the copied plugin.
+ You can now scroll fast in the pop-up menu as well.
+ New option that hides the plugin path.
~ Example: The plugin line is "ms0:/seplugins/myPlugin.prx". If the option is enabled, the app will only display "myPlugin.prx".
+ Fixed bug where TN users with flash protection enabled would cause a crash.
~ Thanks guys for reporting this one. I would have never noticed it. Hopefully it will stay fixed
+ Various optimizations.
EDIT: v1.4_3 uploaded.
+ I put the config back into the app directory so that I don't have to assign two separate flashes... Marginally safer and faster.
~ I promise I won't change it again
+ Lots of bugfixes.
+ More optimizations.
~ Many parts of the app are faster now. Drawing speed, mostly. Certain functions have been optimized.
EDIT: v1.5 uploaded.
+ Fixed more bugs.
~ This is the most stable release yet!
+ Improved plugin saving function.
+ Now removes useless data after initial startup.
~ This isn't going to make a huge impact, but it's still better to conserve memory.
EDIT: v1.5_1 uploaded.
+ The logo now has a really nice fade in/out effect.
+ Pressing square now shows a short description of the selected plugin (as requested).
~ You can press square again to add your own description if one isn't found. This is done Line-By-Line, and leaving a line empty ends the description.
+ You can now load the Recovery Menu from the Config Page. ('cause I'm running out of buttons xD)
~ Note that exiting the Recovery Menu will exit the app.
+ General optimizations.
EDIT: v1.5_2 uploaded.
+ The flash is only assigned if you try to access it.
~ This is so TN users with flash protection enabled will still be able to use most of the app.
+ Improved loading the Recovery Menu.
~ Still won't work on GEN Firmwares...
EDIT: v1.6 FINAL uploaded.
+ Moved all files into the "resources" directory.
~ Please delete the old version before copying over the new one.
+ More improvements to the recovery menu code.
+ Removed unused testing code.
Thanks Halvhjearne for testing the browser and for suggesting the removal check!
