Supposing they are in the same folder? Couldn't you just change the name of the uploaded images to their default values and then change the default directory location?
Basically, when replacing the startup gate for a PSP game, it will be misaligned for some reason. Here's a screenshot (by Hackinformer):

The startup screen and icon worked, but the livearea is still completely white. I followed the steps as carefully as I could, but I noticed I don't have the __SCE_BUBBLE0 folder in my bubblestudio.zip. What is that? Is there supposed to be something in it?
__SCE_BUBBLE0 is the titleid of a Bubble Blower bubble. The file structure in the savegame is constructed using the titleid of a bubble, so it is different for each bubble you change.


Also, at the moment I'm not writing templates to the database just yet, but rather to an xml file. If you had already opened the bubble a different template would already been written to the database (I think). I'll see if I can just write the template to the database directly, which will overwrite whatever was in it in the first place.

Thanks for the app. It's really intuitive to use.

I'm on 3.18 firmware with Sport Motocross used to run PSX launcher and ArcadeDarts for TN-V. I'd like to ask a question regarding bubbles shown in the example screen:
1. How exactly did you create TN-V bubble? In the app I only see Package Installer and PSX bubble options after clicking "Add a bubble" button. Is there a separate tutorial for it? Also it would be cool if you would upload your TN-V images used in the bubble - less work for lazy people like me.
2. There is no way to create a bubble just for opening PSX launcher, right? I always forget the steps needed to exploit that game, so such bubble would be really handy :)

Great work and I'm voting for your tutorial.

edit: one more question:
3. What is the real name of the "FTP for Vita" app on your live screen (this one?) Can it be created with Bubble Studio?

I purchased Numblast from the Store on a friend's PS3 and transferred it to my PS Vita. Then I used the FailMail exploit to replace its eboot with TNV's. The icon for the bubble is created automatically ;).

Here's a tutorial from Hackinformer:

Unfortunately, there is no such way. If you want 1 click bubbles, I'd suggest using rebirth bubbles, but this is a very cumbersome process.

That is indeed the FTP I'm using. It's just an ePSP FTP program, but you can create a bubble for it using the wonderful Bubble Blower.

Yesterday night I have pushed a new version of Bubble Studio.
  • You can now remove a bubble. Press the trashcan next to the accept button to remove it. It's untested but theoretically there should be no issues.

    Image
  • The save page now includes buttons for both FailMail and HENkaku. The files are the same, but the filename is now correct for each firmware (so no more renaming #0).

    Image
More investigation regarding the "white bubbles" problem is ought to be done. Those experiencing this problem may send their app.db file to me for research.

If something broke with the new release, make sure to notify me about it. Thanks.

In the next release I'll put a button somewhere to enable it. Stay tuned.

Hi,

Great job on the theme maker; but is there any way to change the at9 audio? To make custom background audio. I tried going into /pd0:/data/systembgm and changing the home.at9 file but the FTP app won't allow me to make changes to these files. Since bubble studio seems to making changes to the default theme I am stuck trying to make changes to the default audio file which seems to have restrictions. Any advice on changing the audio?

Never mind I realized later that this method changes whatever current theme is applied default or any other one set.

I do not currently provide support for theme edits. I might consider it for the future, however, I don't expect to have much free time left with school starting soon.
