Release 17 -
!!! PLEASE NOTE !!! Release 17 is a beta release and has some known bugs. Release 18 to follow shortly.
BootManager 1.7 Changes:
- Bug Fixes:
Fixed bug in "RGB Fix" for DVD movies on v12 and higher consoles.
Fixed bug in "PS2 Video Fix", games would crash when enabled.
Fixed bug where menu title set by BOOTMENU.PBT was not setting actual
??? - other bugs
- Added support for v14 consoles.
- Added full support for CC1.1 hardware.
- Disabled some menu items(System Configuration and some VGA video options) which were not intended
to be enabled in public releases. These options may or may not be added to future releases.
- Added "ADDDEV" PBAT command
- Added global variables to BM which can be accessed as "$BM.VAR$". For example:
Some of the supported global variables for BM:
"DEST_PATH" - this is the path that applications are INSTALLED TO or EXECUTED FROM.
"SRC_PATH" - this is the path that applications are INSTALLED FROM.
"MENU_TITLE" - Title displayed at the top of the menu.
The application browser has changed it's form a bit. In the "Application Browser" menu
you now have:
Run - Run an application from the "DESTINATION" device.
Install - Install an application from the "SOURCE" device to the "DESTINATION" device.
Remove - Remove an application from the "DESTINATION" device.
Change Source Device - Change the device applications are installed from.
Change Destination Device - Change the device application are installed to and run from.
Applications are listed in a submenu of Run/Install/Remove respectively.
"SOURCE" and "DESTINATION" devices are the "drives" which apps are installed from/to, such as
CD/DVD, Memory Card, USB HDD/pendrive, etc.
Custom Device Support:
Reconfigured the Application Browser menu to support "ADDDEV" devices.
Firmware pack includes USBD.IRX(by Napalm) and USBMASS.IRX(by multiple people) which
allows the user to install applications to/from USB HDD/pendrive as well as run
applications from USB HDD/pendrive. Please note that the USBMASS.IRX included
was hacked up a bit by us to resolve some problems. We're aware that some other
developers have been working on improving USBMASS.IRX and may have had more
success with fixing bugs and incompatabilities. If your HDD/pendrive is not
recognized, try replacing USBMASS.IRX with a newer version.
Miscellaneous things that we've once again forgotten.. ;)
LOADER.S is no longer in the pack, it has been replaced by the following 3 files:
LOAD10.S - CC1.0 loader source
LOAD11.S - CC1.1 loader source
LOAD20.S - CC2.0 loader source
OSDHOOK.S is common for all hardware revisions and has not changed.
When you build the firmware, you will have 3 seperate .CCI files:
FWARE10.CCI - CC1.0 firmware image
FWARE11.CCI - CC1.1 firmware image
FWARE20.CCI - CC2.0 firmware image
When you go to upgrade your chip, the software will automatically detect which of these
files to use.
CCIGEN.EXE has been updated. The updates source code will be released in the next week
once we have a chance to clean it up a bit(and will try to resolve the endian issues
for our Mac customers).
