Sorting PSN Content alphabetically

Post by Dragoonisgone » Wed Nov 25, 2015 5:45 pm

Short guide on sorting it alphabetically. :D Based on what I know.Also before anyone says it.I DID base this on Pinky's Guide.

Step 1: Start up Multiman and check if the flash access is enabled.If it isn't,Enable it.

Step 2: Extract the explore_plugin_full.rco from the following location:


Extract the explore_view.txt from here:

dev_hdd0/home/0000000x (profile that u want to change)/etc

Step 5:After you've got the files,Disable flash access to avoid any errors.

Step 6:Open explore_view.txt with notepad and find this line:

Change that to:

This will switch the sorting mechanism to alphabetical.

Step 7:To change the text within XMB, download rcomage and notepad++.You can do so from these links.

Step 8: Open rcomage.It will be set to dump by default,Do NOT change that. Click separate resource types into separate folders and decode vsmx scripts (nothing else should be 'checked'). Then, click browse next to RCO input and select your explore_plugin_full.rco. You can name the subsequent xml file to anything you want since it will only be used to recomple the rco.

Step 9: After this,Open notepad++, click on the Text folder, and open the English file. From there, find this part:

<Text name="msg_created_date_time_r">Creation Date ▼</text>
Switch it with this:
<Text name="msg_created_date_time_r">Alphabetical ▼</text>

Step 10: Time to recompile the rco.Choose xml input and choose the file from before.After that,Choose zlib as header compression and compile with RCO Output and name the file explore_plugin_full.rco. :mrgreen: you're done!

Hmmm.. I notice some slight changes here and there.Simple wording and such.To a certain extent,It is somewhat more simpler to understand.

So let me get this straight.

you used this guide: ... 0%E2%98%85

Now you think you should earn $10 (possible $20) on something that you had to copy off someone else. Does that seem right?

This tutorial contest is a joke seriously... (its being taken advantage of, but allowed to be as well)
