As the title says, it's a browser app for the popular website FanFiction.Net. It isn't quite finished (and certainly not as polished as I'd like) but I'm putting it up now in case I can't post the final version by the deadline. To add/change the splash screen, modify splash.<png/jpg/gif> (they are tried in that order).

Updated! Again! Signed EBOOT, more bug fixes, and line scrolling as requested.

Download is available here. If you encounter any bugs or errors, please post what you can about it here.

Code: Select all================================================================================
FanFiction.Net Browser by Criptych
================================================================================

An unofficial PSP browser for the popular website FanFiction.Net.
It currently allows you to do the following:
    * Browse fanfiction by category
    * Search by author name or story title/summary
    * View category and author feeds
    * Read stories with basic formatting (bold, italic, underline)

Controls are listed at the bottom of the screen except:
    * Up/Down - move up/down one line
    * Left/Right - move up/down one screen
        (for lists: to top/bottom if not already there)
    * Start & Select - not used

To add/remove/change splash image:
    Replace file "SPLASH.JPG" in the folder containing EBOOT.PBP.

Thanks go out to InsertWittyName, hlide, MrMr[iCE], and the many others at the
LuaPlayer and PS2DEV forums for their help and support while I fumbled my way
toward learning to develop for the PSP.  You're the ones who made this possible.

Known bugs/issues:
    * Screen flickers sometimes, especially in system dialogs - in extreme cases
      may black out every other keypress (seems to be a vsync problem?)

Well, I'm not sure how to test signed homebrew since I use CFW 5.50 GEN-D3, but as for wifi, it connects automatically as necessary (and you can turn it back off with the switch).

Occasionally, and more with this than through the website. There's a lot of garbage, but you can find some great stuff there, too. ;)

Thanks, I'm sure that will help a lot of people. :D But you'll have to update it now!

I know the GUI especially needs a lot of improvement, but I've never seen it do anything like that before. Can you give me some more details? Maybe it's a hardware issue; does this happen to you in other games or apps?

Not that general, more like the PSN store - it retrieves and displays a particular set of information from a particular site, and lets you download content to your PSP for offline use.

No it only happened in this app i press down/up button 1 time and it goes 2-3 steps up/down.and when i select some item by pressing X and then press down it gets back just as the button O would do!
