Hi all. Attached you will find an English translation of kgsws' great work for converting icons to psp format for use with the topmenu_plugin.rco.
Here's from my readme.txt:
Custom xmbIcon Packager by kgsws
English translation by caliFrag
I take no credit for this release as this is mostly a translation.
Hexed bmp2mig.exe and join.exe: Translated to English.
Renamed zac.dat and kon.dat to hdr.dat and ftr.dat respectively.
Support for multiple firmwares with one batch file.
Added advanced error handling procedures to the batch file.
Add support to choose icon set from command window. (i.e. a directory list will display the sub-folders in "sets". You choose a folder and the program will create the icons from that folder.)
Extract "xmbPackager" folder to desired installation directory. (Your choice)
Copy your icons to the "icons" folder.
1.bmp - Settings Icon
2.bmp - Photo Icon
3.bmp - Music Icon
4.bmp - Video Icon
5.bmp - Game Icon
6.bmp - Network Icon (N/A for FW1.50 users.)
Execute "start.cmd" by double clicking.
Program will prompt you to enter your firmware version:
Enter A, B or C and press the Enter key.
The batch file will execute much in the same fashion as kgsws's.
All messages will be displayed on the screen. (in English)
