PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

Hi fellow flash gamers!

Ok, i like the ability in many of the flash game portals to you know, browse your own games n all. But it would be much cooler (here comes the idea!!) to like have the frontpage of the portal, and it would have like basic elements: Games, Videos, and Applications. but when u would press (for example) Games, it would show a window which would show every flash game u have in a specified directory (e.g. PSP/COMMON/PORTAL/Games and same with videos and apps with their own folders. That would be the best for me and i think a lot of ppl, since i have atleast 200 flash games stored in my memory stick and (although its pretty good) the 'browse' ability in many portals doesnt suit for me (its too slow)
Now, I challenge EVERY each of u reading this, who can code my idea with html or any 'psp readable' format, to help me and manymanymany other ppl!


(If my idea is already created by sum1, please let me know...)


P.S. sry for my bad english

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

We have tried this and the basic answer is its not possible because of security reasons a web page can not have the ability to browse games. The only solution I came up with was to have a portal that links to the games where the links and other information was stored in an xml file. There was little to no interest in this so I have only been developing it for personal use. There is a topic about it here and the beta I released is here. The beta requires knowledge of xml in order to customize but there is a tutorial somewhere in there.

I think it`s a good idea. But there is one problem. If it`s based on psp`s xmb, how would we get the xmb icons?

The icons are just images they can be whatever the user wants. The images have to be 60*60 pixels and can be a jpeg image file or a swf file so the I cons can be animated if the user wants them to be.

Yea, but we can't get the real xmb icons, because they are in the psp's flash0, and they are png images.

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

The idea is to create your own icons, If you have the png files of the official XMB then you can easily convert them to jpeg using a photoshop program and then use those. The main idea of this portal is so its nearly 100% customizable by the user. You can decide on how many main menus you want and what those menus contain eg. animation, games, links etc so many of the menus would not exist in the PSPs XMB. The plan was to develop this more than the current stage but due to a lack of interest development has ceased at the moment, I may start again if there is an interest though.

Usally, i make my own flash portals. Never realesed one of them, but i'm interest in some kind of an XMB made in flash that are fully customizeable, like add ing games to it, without having to edit the code.

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

i really myself wouldnt care about the icons, the impotant thing would be that it would be easier to play and select from hundreds of flash games. I already got my hands into one flash game portal, which i tried to edit and got it so it showed my games stored in the folder-the only thing was that i had to add every game's link into the html code of the portal. otherwise that would suit very fine, but i have over 100 flash games on my memory stick... well, hope sum1 get's an idea for this...

btw, i recently made a psp memory stick browser... i know that there are many of those already, mostly included in a portal, but i just had to make my own.... it's called Jellyfish PSP Browser 2.0 and it comes with 2 languages english and finnish. if somebody would like to try it, and say comments about it (it's the very first thing i ever coded with html) if someone's interested to try it, please let me know! i will be happy if even one of you would be interested!

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

like Jake said, we've been playing with this idea for ages now, and it is half done.

The original plan was for Jake to make the flash portal, skinnable and customisable, then I'd write a section of this website where you could customise your own skin without touching any code. You'd then download your own customised zip file and unzip it onto your PSP, and it all works!

This idea has got a lot of milage, as it'd be easy to release different skins, as well as adding customisation options so that people can make their own, simple skins without any code.

Problems are that a)the flash runs a bit slow on the PSP, and b)to make it so user-friendly requires a lot of code, and a lot of time. Both Jake and me are unfortunately very pushed for that, hence it hasn't happened yet.

i think that is a damn good idea, but the only problem is that that might not be possible. there are several security reasons why thats not possible to do.... i think but i hope someone gets an brilliant idea and makes that possible... hope no custom FW needed...

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

hey hey hey every1!!! i got an idea based on that portal which would show every game/app on a folder! if thats not possible, what about a program for pc which would create a .html file which would include the games on a folder! then the portal would link you to the file that the program created and ´voila, you have a site full of every game you have on your PSP!!! and every time you get some new games,run the program and you have the new .html file! if you get my idea, plz try to make it if you know how to code programs for PC or ask sum1 who knows!!!! this would solve all our problems (for now)


THX!!!

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

hehe, if only it was as simple as that. I'm virtually certain that it won't be possible to write anything that detects and links to files present in a folder as basically all web-based codes cannot interact with client side files as a security feature. There are exceptions such as Java, but they're pretty tricky to code.
The PC coding also isn't easy - I guess a small applet written in visual basic or something? I can't write VB (yet) so i'll have to pass this one onto someone who can.

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

Java running on a website in an applet wouldn't work because it runs in a sandbox environment so that it can't access the host computer to cause damage and i'm guessing that VB would be the same as an applet although i haven't tried. The only way to get around that is having it as a downloadable application.

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

yeah, that's what I meant sorry - writing a downloadable application that essentially writes the html / xml or whatever which is then static...

Good idea! If only someone here can code C, C++, or VB, it could be pretty nice.

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

Hey, I'm gonna ask one of my friends to code it for us, he is good at coding with C++ and VB, he's helped me with my own portal and all... hope he has time to help. i think i have to beta test it cause he has no PSP.tongue
but in case he cant or has no time to do it, please someone who could code with C, C++ or VB like rollinroll said, please be so kind and  make an application which writes the html or xml. PLZZ!

thx!!

Re: PSP Flash Game Portals /an idea for a html coder or flash maker!

ok, i called my friend about this and he said that it could be possible, but his now working on a huge project and has no time to do this so let's just hope that someone else has.
