    Nvm that site mentioned doesn't have full 3d covers, only 2d. I wonder if anyone would want to submit for a psvita section to be added to gametdb

    Hi @VitaHEX , this app already looks great, even more for a first release. Seeing that there is currently no way to automatically scrape the covers, I wonder if an alternative option could be added to show the library but showing the icon images of each game, as apps already do, but perhaps in a square shape and without frames so that they alter or stretch the image. In addition, this would avoid having to use additional storage space for the covers.
    I also think that other categories such as Utilities, PSP Games, PS1 Games, Emulators etc. would be very convenient.
    Congratulations for the already done and thank you very much for sharing it with the community. :grog:

    Thank you for your support. I have plans to make an option to automatically scrape the covers however this will take some time. I need to address many important issues first to make this app more stable.
    About the icons I was thinking to make the apps without covers to look simple squares but I don't want to lose the look of all the other covers.
    Also more categories will be added in the future of course.

    EDIT: I subscribed to your patreon a couple of hours ago. Here's a list of features that would be nice to have for this

    a custom category system
    toggle to change the blur, or opacity of the reflection
    bar color changer
    option for title text location, on top or below the box art
    support rectangle box art
    toggle, or remove the psvita part of the box art for people who want rectangle box art, if you can't do that make something fun for psp games, like a 3d model of a umd disc with the game cover on it
    add a ps1 box art feature like the psvita part

    Hi there... perhaps you like to share or collaborate?

    I am currently also working on a library of cover images/ boxarts for HEXFlow.

    Greets!

    your box arts don't look right on hexflow, the top vita part gets cut off so you have to make the image square. the vita part on top is built in to the app. I forked your github project, I'm currently adding psp game covers and ps1 game covers

    Hmm, they look correct on my VITA. If I make them square the proportions won't be correct as the image will be stretched up to the top behind the blue "PSVITA" layer. So I decided to make covers with suitable proportions - the "PSVITA" header at the top will be overwritten by the one from the launcher :)

    Anyway, the overlay from the launcher will be a layer over the image, not really cut off.

    Here you can see a comparison if the image is square - top: square image on my computer, bottom: image in HEXFlow is stretched and top pixels will be overwritten by the "PSVITA" header...

    Some great suggestions thank you! Some of them are impossible due to the limitations of LPP but I'll see what I can do.
    Also about your PSP covers, even though they are not implemended yet they must probably look like this:

    Thank your contribution about the covers! All working properly.
    Link added on first post.

    I found that if the games title name is long enough it overlaps with the bottom section stating what numbered game I am looking at out of a total number. Is there any way to fix this?

    Can you fix this? It only happens on psp games. It's cutting out the middle characters of the name and adding a d to the end of the name

    Sometime in the future yes.

    Can you post a screenshot of the issue?

    Thanks! I am happy I can support in some way... ;)

    For the interested ones of you...
    There are now 100 "handmade" cover images available. Since most of the original covers have different icons, logos etc. on it, most of them are "handmade" from nearly clean covers or wallpapers, single game logos and some shadowing/gradients.

    There's a .PSD photoshop template file available too now - so you can create your own covers.

    I will update the cover images too - as well as the .PSD file.

    Why is there no source code for this project? There's only images, and the release

    @VitaHEX I noticed that psp and psx game forwarders don't count as games, could you also fix that issue?
