Here's my entry into the competition. I released it now since it already has all the features you'll be looking for in a plugin manager. It is a work in progress, meaning there will be features to come, and eye-candy to be added. Feedback is most welcome.

Perhaps the coolest features are "behind the scenes". For this project I wrote a support library that will allow you to package a tree-structure of files as a standard cpio archive, you can then attach the cpio archive in the psar section of the PBP. The library takes care of accessing the files, also wrote a file-system handler for oslib that allows you to access those files using regular oslib functions.


Description:
--------------
"YAPM (A) Plugins Manager" is just what the name implies. It's a homebrew to
keep your PRX plugins organized. It started out as a project to get more
experience coding for the PSP and also because other Plugin Managers at the
time either had bugs or were written in a foreign language, or both.

The name stands for "Yet Another Plugin Manager" it is also a recursive
acronym. It is coded using the OldSchool MODv2 library, the MinPSP toolchain
and my own tools and libraries.


Download:
--------------

It comes in two variants, one signed to run on OFW and one unsigned for use on CFW/HEN. Both variants use approximately 1 Mb disc space.

The partypak is an optional eye-candy extra, it contains background images, music and can be useful if you want to modify the look. Note that the partypak overwrites the configuration file to change the look of the plugin manager.

Looks better organized than other similar homebrews, i'll try it.
Operation sounds well organized, too. An option I would suggest is to copy or move plugins (lines) to other text files, as I heard about some plugins that work under different environments (I personally don't use that way). For example, a plugin can be included in vsh.txt AND game.txt.
Thanks.

Didn't see the compo rule about needing to have a splash screen. Reuploaded a version that is compliant, but otherwise feature-identical, so if you downloaded the first version there's no need to download this one.

Also thanks for comments. Copy&Paste sounds useful, I'll see about adding that in the next version.

I think you should remove your "previous" link, the main point of the splash screen is to give credit to the ppl and sites who are sponsoring this compo. Without them there'd be no prize(s)

I agree with some1, if the main link in your first post still has the non-splashscreen version, get that updated. Would hate to have you forget about it and have it cause probs later...

However, to get to the important part of this, my 1st reply to your entry, your entry is accepted! :) Everyone else learn from this; do not submit without splash screen, if it keeps happening depending on which of the five of us replies first - or rather has the time to test and then reply first, well... just saying be careful! : )

Regards,

npt

This part is getting my attention... this sounds fairly cool, I'm wondering if it could be added as an extension to OSLib... I'm probably dreaming here, but does it allow write access as well? (sounds dangerous, but oh well...)
