Q&A

Why and what is a Alpha Slideshow?

Alpha is a channel used in most image formats and the image transition uses the alpha channel to fade between images. This style also has a completly random image sequence

What is a dynamic theme?

A dynamic theme is simply a theme with a moving background made up with 3D models, textures and a script.

What’s the difference between animated and dynamic themes?

Animated themes only have 1 effect which is a very fast slideshow, where as dynamic themes include multipe effects.

Why can’t I edit the .js script with this style?

The answer is quite simple… this is what the alpha slideshow is. I simply don’t want anyone to modify my script(or any script I compile). I can and will be adding more elements/effects to the background like a rotating logo. Ideas are welcomed to Laugh

What are your plans for this year?

It’s not really a plan but my aim is to get new users/members to create themes using mine and others help… and of course for FREE Wink

Feedback is always welcome so if you like/dislike this tell me why? or simply say thank you Smile

Have fun and enjoy! Laugh

@ fonz

I think its becsuse of the directory your running the .bat from mate. You have to extract the PS3AlphaSlideshow.zip using the “extract here” feature on the C: drive.

At the start of the tutorial make sure your directory is the same as mine fella 😉

I think u can ignore that ‘…power of 2’ message. As long as all your pics are 1920×1080 that should be good. U said it produced DDS files so compile your theme and test it out

Very good. Take the RAF and put it in the folder with your icons. You’ll have to edit the XML in that folder. I’m not too familiar with this method, but it appers the rest of it is covered in the tutorial. Good luck

dunno how that is possible cus the CREATE_THEME.bat is supposed to rename alphaslideshow.raf to just slideshow.raf. try renaming manually.

let me no how you get on man Smile

Well I think Glowball don’t want to tell us the “secret”….

Man, went you release this “new” method I told you that I don’t see nothing new and I will tell you why. The reason I will explain this is quite simple, I dont like your attitude. Why you have to write this ?

“Why can’t I edit the .js script with this style?
The answer is quite simple… this is what the alpha slideshow is. I simply don’t want anyone to modify my script(or any script I compile). “

This is not your “script” is a modification from the original “mustache.js/ mustache.xml so why you have to encript those files and not even that tell us that are yours, went clearly are not yours. The real owner of those files are Sony. Sorry but I have to explain here were you get it.

You only delete the dynamic part of the mustache.js and from there you got the SlideShow. Yes the first tutorial you gave us to create the slideshows.

Why this method I said don’t have nothing new ? Because if someone want to create an “Alpha” SlideShow the only thing he have to do is get the files from the animated or from the first slideshow method and the only thing he have to edit is only one simple line in the XML. Yes with only editing one simple line in the XML you got this style.

So if anyone want to create this without dealing with encriptions get the files from the original slideshow tutorial and from those files only edit this line in the XML in “effect”.

http://img20.imageshack.us/img…..111isn.png
http://img839.imageshack.us/im…..01111q.png

Add that line to all your frames, thats all you have to do.

If you don’t have the files get it from the original SlideShow tutorial.

http://www.ps3-themes.com/foru…..show-theme

If not you can edit the “animated script” too without problems and use it.

Man Glowball we need here a Open Theme Scene, not a Closed to move on in this we need a true Open Theme Scene not a hidden scene.

BTW : The “GlideShow” use the same script with a few minor changes for those who ask what about that method.

@ Faxtron

I only see your comment as bullying man simple as that Surprised. Can I ask you a question please, if this isn’t my script and it’s Sony’s then how do the images change randomly both at the start and throughout the sequence? Embarassed

I say the internet is FREE and so am I fella Cool. Of course with that I do, share and create what I want and when I want and don’t need your bullyish tactics to try make me do something I’m not ready to do.

What ever happened to this Faxtron (below) who was full of respect and very positive lol??? Wink

I will tell you something those messages was witten by me long, long time ago. As you know I not ask you anything long, long time ago. Can you tell us the date of those messages ? That questions deals with the edition of POP.jsx something very different than the method we use now. So why you came here with that ? You ask what happen with “Faxtron” well I will tell you. I’m tired about your arrogance that’s all. And I’m tired of that long time ago for that reason I don’t ask you nothing related to this. Example of why I don’t ask you nothing is your recent message. I’m completly different with you, because of you, I’m really tired about your attitude, that’s all. We are here to help us all, not to hide us things with useless encriptions we have that with Sony to make it by our own. You can’t tell us that is yours because is not your “Script” more went are modifications from thirds. We are here to improve our knowledge of this with mutual help, you are forgot your site. If you don’t think the same sorry I’m here with that purpose the same as other user here like “OPTIMUS” my best friend here for example. Your arrogance are consuming yourself my friend. I’m not compare you with nothing here and you know that (Sony) What do you say ? I’m only say that is not your script and is true. And for that reason you cant make it your own. I’m only tell you the truth with facts nothing more and if you need more prof I can upload the original files, yes man, those files you use to create your encriptions extracted from official files.

You can tell me whatever you want to try to fool a few but not me. To say the script is completly yours you have to code it from scratch something you don’t do my friend, you can’t modifying it and tell us you can’t use it because is not your creation 100%, that it. Is not etic bro simple as it. You only made a few modyfication there nothing more.

Who was the guy who start all this ? That is the question ?

The “bullyish tactics” who started this first ?

You said this can go for long one day and you are right, but I can not stay silent. Wink

BTW : The real instructions and complete info. to deal with the pop.jsx you can find it right here :

Directly by the autor of rcomage ZiNgA BuRgA. This is were you get that info. ha,ha…

@ Faxtron

I think I know where you are coming from man… but I also think you are confusing yourself . You say my arrogance?? haha thats just my personality/ego its who GlowBall is. You are obsessed with who’s script is who’s without looking at the facts. If I look at the points you are making and took them into serious consideration… realisticly this site and this debate would be or is Sony’s right??

When I asked a simple question you give me alot of personal jargon and no facts or evidence… so I ask you mate where in the SDK files do Sony write in a script for a dynamic theme containing random image sequence? Wink

Not sure what you mean by who started this but I was the guy who publicly started sharing dynamic theme knowledge and still do lol… apologies have been made for my behaviour fella but you seem to have a chip on your shoulder over something that has nothing to do with you tbh.

Who are you to decide why we are here and what purpose? Yell

ps3-themes.com is #1 Resource for PS3 Themes

so aslong as there are new themes “they”(ps3-themes) will always number 1! Laugh

yes “they” meaning not yours, mine or any other members here Surprised haha

If you walk down the street, it doesn’t mean the street should have your name…

Every single bit of the script’s code you use, as well as the tools we all use, are and remain property of who created them, even if we use and/or modify them to do something other than that for which they have been designed.
When we use a script code, or we use a tool, we’re just walking down that street; and when we modify the script or tool to get something different, it’s as if we were making a graffiti on the wall that runs along that street: we changed its appearance and we got something different, but we’ll never be the owners of that street or part of it anyway, simply because we didn’t build it…
And if we share the street with other people, then we cannot even claim that people do not walk on the side of the street where we made the graffiti.
You can keep on saying whatever you want and find a thousand other points of view, but the fact of the matter doesn’t change: Sony is the owner of the street and we’re just the pedestrians who walk on it, no matter what we do or we think.
We could even put up a giant poster of our face on the wall of that street and write on it “Hey! I’m the one who made the graffiti on the wall… so, I don’t want anyone to use/modify that wall and/or walk on the street. I can, and will be adding more graffiti” (which is what you say, after all)… but it wouldn’t change anything.
All this stuff of the scripts has always been a simple concept to understand, but you continue to refuse it.

And your question “Who are you to decide why we are here and what purpose?” is so damn useless…
Nobody here decides anything for anyone because we all made a choice, which is to walk on the street all together to share our common passion (that is supposed to be the obvious purpose).
On the contrary, looks like you’re the only one here who started to decide for others… so, the real question is: Who are YOU to decide who can walk on that street or not?

@ OPTIMUS

Aahhh ok lol where to start wiv this situation as it is 2 vs 1 haha. So from your perception and opinion of what I am doing here with this tutorial is that I am trying to gain ownership of Sony’s tools and scripts right?? well your wrong man I’m mearly labeling this tutorial with an author… thats it! no credit wanted just basicly to get people to create and express themselves if they wish to do so lol with no cost attached Wink

I will explain my scripting and encryption now for you fella and I will stick with the whole street thing haha. I got some tools to build a house on Sony’s street within these tools there was lots of help to get me started and there was even examples of finished houses. So I decide to build a house on the street named ps3-themes as it looked like a nice neighbourhood lol and the land was free (given by Sony)… there were some houses already there which was good cus I would need help to started. After a year or so my house was built and I understood almost everything on building this house. With this knowledge I decided to make some modifications and complete rebuilds in areas of my house… when that was done I say to my neighbours Hey! do you like my house Laugh and get the response of it’s not your house it’s Sony’s. This made me both sad and angry cus I believe that it is my creation and inspiration that made my house what it is today. You see my house is like no other house on my street and I wasn’t convinced my neighbours like who I am what I have created which is dissapointing cus I helped others get started on there houses and gave them alot of respect for there houses… I even give them the tools which were given to me Frown. I gave myself some thinking time and realised that my house is really my home Smile and I’m not gonna let my neighbours soil what I have created. So I put a lock on my gate so people couldn’t gain access to soil my home as easy as before haha. In the whole time of living here I have not heard from Sony to tell me that I couldn’t make my home or even use the tools they created… I think this must be cus I am not looking to benefit myself from others only wanting to share the designs of my home for all to see. I would say they see what I’m doing as advertisment for their worldwide legacy (not just 1 street). I won’t do as my neighbours tell me no matter how hard they try haha and the only way for me to move home is ps3-themes want their land for someone else or Sony take back all the land given to ps3-themes.

So optimus after that long winded story lol you can see that I’m not claiming ownership of nothing apart from my creation and my creation will always be mine just like I have just created this message for you to read Wink

Also answering to the question is that I’m not deciding who can walk/build or do whatever on the street I just decide who can come into my home.

To remain positivity here on ps3-themes both you and Faxtron should stop disturbing the peace on the street and go back into your own homes haha Laugh

live your life and be free to who you are…………….. live in someone elses life and be imprisoned by who they are

To add or remove the number of frames/backgrownd you have to deal with the code without encriptions and in my message “13” in this thread I give the instructions to how you can create your own unencripted. Anyway this method is like the animated and the old slideshow method and accept the same number of frames/images in HD “15” because use the same base script so if you don’t want to add new things there like static pictures or dynamic objects you don’t need to deal with the script because in the files provided by Glowball he give you all the possibilities for frames in the pack. Yes I know I can give you the script without encription but for respect to glowball I can’t give it. Only I can give the instructions to do your own. Sorry Yell
