Return to menu key combination

Post by wth » Sat Mar 10, 2012 10:23 pm

Why not have a return to menu key combination in HBL ?
Because games without any exit option require to relaunch HBL after, not really handy

I intend to add a thread or smthg, checking for this key combination and returning to the menu if pressed, in my port of HBL to my exploit

(could be made configurable in hbl_config.txt actually)

We already have something similar to go back to the xmb, I assume we could use this to go back to HBL, especially on the vita where "going back to the xmb" just crashes the whole thing

If you need US PSN Codes, this technique is what I recommend.

Exiting the game should get you to the HBL menu again, and anyway, IIRC this was already implemented, and by you, wololo:

Code: Select all

# force_exit_button
# combination of buttons to press to force exit a homebrew and return to HBL
# useful for homebrews that don't have an exit menu, since the HOME button doesn't work in HBL
# use hex values
#  PSP_CTRL_SELECT = 0x000001, PSP_CTRL_START = 0x000008, PSP_CTRL_UP = 0x000010, PSP_CTRL_RIGHT = 0x000020,
# PSP_CTRL_DOWN = 0x000040, PSP_CTRL_LEFT = 0x000080, PSP_CTRL_LTRIGGER = 0x000100, PSP_CTRL_RTRIGGER = 0x000200,
#  PSP_CTRL_TRIANGLE = 0x001000, PSP_CTRL_CIRCLE = 0x002000, PSP_CTRL_CROSS = 0x004000, PSP_CTRL_SQUARE = 0x008000,
# For example select + start is 1+8 = 0x9
#
# Comment out for performance
force_exit_buttons=0x00000009

Haha, you're right. I thought that was to go back to the xmb, but that's actually to go back to hbl... Did anybody confirm it works on the vita?
