[RELEASE] VolDown plugin
Imagine: You are bored in boring math class. Your teacher is boring and the whole school is boring. You want to play a game on your psp. So you turn on your psp and then it happened. Last time you play on your psp you forget to turn the sound off. You hear the StartUp sound of your psp. The teacher heared it also and you have to gave your psp to the teacher.
To prevent this enormous annoyance you can use my newest homebrew.
It's called "VolDown".
It's a small plugin which turns the vollume down to ZERO. After it had done it it unloads itselfe so is doesn't use any memory after it had one its task.
(I know you can also put earphones in but not everone had a earphone ready)
Have fun playing in class room or somewhere else where you have to be quiet.
Copy "VolDown.prx" to ms0:\seplugins\
Add the following line to ms0:\seplugins\vsh.txt:
(you don't have to add this line to game.txt)
Turn off your PSP.
Hold R while you turn your psp on again.
In recovery go to plugins and enable VolDown.prx
In XMB turn the volume to maximum.
Confirm that it works.

This is a great idea. though if possible I think it ould be better if instead of turning the volume all the way down to achieve silence just activate mute like you normally would by holding the note button down. That way when you want to turn sound back on by pressing a volume button you go straight back to the volume you were at before rather than starting from zero
Maybe you could make VolMute.prx plugin also plz
Either way good work
Very good idea for a plugin. Nice work. So does it automatically set the volume to Zero every time you boot your PSP? That will come in handy, because the whole PSP in class thing happened to me once. I turned on my PSP, unaware that I was in the middle of playing a game, and the sound from the game goes off! But I quickly turned it off and my dumb teacher didn't even hear a thing. Lol
Couldn't you either delete the startup sound or skip coldboot intro in recovery to achieve the
same thing without running a plugin?
Coming to think of it, shouldn't you be paying attention in class? :D
Thats actually happened to me before, in my school. Forgot to turn the volume down, teacher hears me playing dragonballZ (the bloody sony sound when you launch anything played). So that was me PSPless for a day. Nice little app :tup:
Only one problem how am i supposed to play it when your psp emits light and your face turns a different color?
Though nice i just don't see how i can get away with this, your teachers must be dumb man i can barely pull out my cell without getting caught...
(of course my teachers will be like "put away your cell phone" and i'll just put it up and then 3 minutes later i'll pull it out again)
Well there shouldn't be that much light on your face unless the classroom's lights are off. And my teachers aren't really right on top of us all the time, so it's easy to play your PSP under your desk.

Man, I had a smoke out the window in high school class without getting busted.
I always wondered if the teacher just preferred to ignore it to save the aggro.
