    I know this is pretty much nonsense, but i figure i would ask anyways.
    Does anyone know if there is a way to have my hacked PSP start up and display the two PS1 Startup Screens?

    If not i mean i understand. Its kinda a strange request.
    But if i can... that would be awesome. It kinda give me a sitffy [​IMG]

    No clue.

    I do know you can make a custom theme that changes the gameboot (that sony splash screen) when starting games, though. Make a vid of those startup screens the gameboot screen, and it'll be even MORE like a PS1? Those screens, then the game.

    It will always display the old playstation logo because that's built into the game. The other sony one on the other hand, I've seen some with it as a still picture, but I don't know about getting it animated.

    I've seen themes that change the startup (such as Slanty Shanty), but I've only seen them change the logo itself, not the entire screen color or the size of the logo.

    Course you can. Grab the appropriate Coldboot/Cintro (it's out there) and either edit it into the CTF theme you're using or flash it into flash0 (advised hackable PSP's only)

    *puts on google diving goggles and goes for a swim to find some of these programs.

    EDIT:
    After digging around a bit i figured some stuff out.
    Coldboot is the text that flashes when you start your psp up.
    Cintro is an animated intro that plays before the coldboot. i think from what i understand it can only be 2.5 seconds without needed modified.

    So i dont even know where to start. Anyone have a good tutorial or something to point me in the right direction?

    Terms you'll need for your search are rco, CTFArchiver (or CTF Manager) rco editor, opening_plugin.rco (and which settings dictate the timings).

    It's the same process for gameboots really....i'd suggest you do this via a theme rather than directly to flash0 though.

    Essentially you want this right?

    That is EXACTLY what i want [​IMG]
    Like that is PERFECT.

    My PSP is a 100X and its already hacked with 5.00 m33.6 i think.

    Simplest thing for you to do would be to just message that guy and ask for the files he used to do it. It's relatively recent so you have a fair chance.

    Actually sod it, i'll message him...my bet is that's a theme though

    That doesn't complete the picture though because the timings are liable to be off. You'd need the coldboot.vag and the opening_plugin values for animation length.

    Not ideal, as a modified theme or flash0 would be more elegant, but it'd do the trick by autostarting the pmf player.
