MemcardRex goes open source

I decided to release the source code for MemcardRex in a hope that community
will contribute to it and keep the project alive.

Due to some other ongoing projects of mine I'm unable to work on MemcardRex
as much as I want to and it would be a shame to let the project die.

I have set up a git repository page which can be reached by following this link:
MemcardRex Git repository

Also, if anyone is up for it a Gtk# port of the application would be much appreciated
as non Windows platform are lacking a serious PS1 Memory Card editor.

Gtk# version of BIOSGet released.

Lately I have been using Linux and I noticed that my BIOSGet application
was not working properly with Mono.

That's why I decided to port the application to Gtk#.

So here it is. It should work properly on Linux and OS X if you have latest Mono runtime installed.

PadTest (PS1 homebrew)

Every so often I get or buy a cheap broken PlayStation controller and I fix it.

With that I found myself in need for a controller test application
since that feature is pretty crude in standard games.

So I decided to write my own and upon completing it I'm sharing it with community.

Burn a bin/cue image to CD and boot it on your console.
After that connect a controller of your choice to either port and test it's buttons.

Analog controllers should automatically switch to analog "red led mode".
To test rumble press L3 for big motor and R3 for small motor.

This software is intended to be ran on the actual PlayStation 1 or PSone console.
Since it's using direct memory access to SIO ports it may not work on emulators or other
consoles (PlayStation 2).

Those who own a serial cable for their PS1s are in for a treat.

PSX BIOS Dumper 2.6 released

Recently I started programming for PSX once again so I decided to update my BIOS dumper.

I've added a serial cable support, so for those lucky ones who have a PSX serial cable
you don't have to use Memory Cards which makes the whole process a lot faster.

  • Fixed error which displayed incorrect version and date on SCPH-1000 consoles.
  • Added BIOS CRC-32 information.
  • Added option to use serial cable.
  • Updated BIOSmerge for Linux (x86 and x64).

If you need a guide for using this software visit this thread.
