This video tutorial will show you how to create a Pro SlideShow dynamic PS3 theme.
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 is this pro/dynamic?
Pro is the version of the slideshow style and there are 3 effects used
1. Timed camera zoom in/out
2. Random start image
3. Smooth fade transition between images
When I drag and drop the ProSlideShow.xml I don't get ProSlideShow.raf, Why?
The ProSlideShow folder must on the root of your C: drive. If you still get errors copy this command in cmd.exe
Why do you do this GlowBall and for free too lol?
I do it cus I want people to enjoy spending time with thier PS3 console and I believe that you can't put a price on fun.
ProSlideShow.zip (needed) - http://www.mediafire.com/?x8rt.....4lax39qdu4
Notepad++ (optional) - http://notepad-plus-plus.org/d.....6.1.2.html
Theme Creator Specifications - http://www.mediafire.com/?2jss.....mvqi8ck420
Original ProSlideShow.js (Advanced) - http://www.mediafire.com/?di5w.....15fa1bal4k
Change Fade Color
1. Download and copy ProSlideshow.js http://www.mediafire.com/?hpp6.....6lnhwq1fh3 to the ProSlideShow folder.
2. Open ProSlideshow.js in notepad++ and edit the fade_color units (Red, Green, Blue, Alpha) on line 4.
1.0 is equal to 100% so use this website to help http://www.december.com/html/s.....orper.html and alpha doesn't matter really cus the dds files don't contain it.

Feedback is always welcome so if you like/dislike this tell me why? or simply say thank you
Have fun and enjoy!
Ok, so I'm having a little trouble with this. I think the script calls for 7 background images ONLY, so I edited the .xml to accommodate only 4, but when I clean up and install on the PS3 it only shows image 4 static, no animation. Any help would be appreciated, thanks for your awesome work GlowBall.
The script is complex and you can't really change the amount of slides unless you remove the random selection (selects a number 1-7). Best option for you mate would be to get more images or repeat them. If you wondering why it's satic and on image 4 it's because any error within the script the PS3 skips it completely and as image 4 is the last image it stays satic.
If you know how you can play around but if you don't then it is not recommended as you can brick your PS3
Which OS are you on man?
You can try setting jpg2dds.exe to run as administrator from the properties menu (right click). The tutorial set to run from the C:/ drive fella. Happy you see that it's a simpler process man that way even new themers can have a go.
Haha 30 themes you are a hardcore themer lol
Thanks GlowBall, I guess I'll just add a few more wallpapers 🙂 As for droopysp, are you sure you put it like this? C:ProSlideShow and not C:ProSlideshow/ProSlideshow? Because when you extract the zip file straight into the C drive it makes 2 ProSlideshow folders, one inside the other. It wasn't working for me either but I made sure it's just one folder in the C drive with the contents, not folder/folder/then contents.
@GlowBall : Slide Horizontal
var base_color = ;var hide_color = base_color * ;
var background = new Array(
, new Actor("2")
, new Actor("3")
, new Actor("4")
, new Actor("5")
var anim_length = 10.0;
var switch_time = 2.0;
var bg_current = -1;
var old_bg = bg_current;
var base_scale = background.scale;
for (var i = 0; i < background.length; i++)
background[i].position = ;
if (old_bg >= 0)
background[old_bg].position = ;
return (bg_current+1) % background.length;
if (bg_current >= 0)
old_bg = bg_current;
System.timer = new OneShotTimer(switch_time, hideBackground);
bg_current = calcBgIndex();
System.timer = new IntervalTimer(anim_length, updateBackground);
System.timer = new OneShotTimer(849.0/60.0, createIntervalTimer);
To convert to DDS the dimensions need to be a multiple of meaning the number of pixels has to be divided evenly (no decimal) by 4.
1920 / 4 = 480 this will work for DDS
1569 / 4 = 392.25 this won'y work cus it evenly divided

Cool!! Thanks Glowball1!!! Okay, so I used photoscape to get a 16:9 cut out of a photo then opened it up in ms paint and skimmed off the excess until it was dividable by 4!!! Thanks!! Btw how can I change the name of the p3t file so when I install it into my ps3 I wont have a lot of themes with the proslideshow.p3t name? So far I'm loving this, thanks!
