**Tools Updated**

This is a written turorial on how to create a Slide Show PS3 theme (dynamic style).

The things you will need:

1. My slide show theme files – http://www.mediafire.com/?9xzr…..j5nr5whwxz

2. Notepad++ – http://notepad-plus-plus.org/d…..5.9.3.html

3. Raf Toolshttp://www.mediafire.com/?oi7a…..hp544i93s1

4. Photoshop and the Nvidia DDS plugin.

Extract my SlideShowFiles.zip and go into the folder “SlideShow”. Extract to a directory with NO spaces in the folder names.

What you need to do is decide now is how many backgrounds you want (maximum of 15). Say you want to have 10 you will change both

SlideShow.xml and SlideShow.js accordingly with notepad++.

http://postimage.org/image/203u5g6f8

So you add a new section in both SlideShow.xml and SlideShow.js for each background added. For less simply remove them in

both. Save your changes.

If you wanted more than 8 backgrounds you will have to copy and paste the same number of bg**.dds backgrounds to match

your wanted amount, also re-name each file.

Now edit the background files (bg**.dds) and save to these settings.

http://postimage.org/image/203ab00hw

To change the time of which the background changes go into .js and change the value of “anim_length” in SlideShow.js.

http://postimage.org/image/203f9m1z8/

Copy these 7 files (below) from RafTools folder to the “SlideShow” folder.

1. raf_anim.exe
2. raf_compiler.exe
3. raf_compiler.inf
4. raf_geom.exe
5. raf_pack.exe
6. raf_script.exe
7. dds2gtf.exe

Then you drag and drop the SlideShow.xml onto the raf_compiler.exe. You should then get SlideShow.raf in the “SlideShow” folder. Re-name SlideShow.raf to Anim_1.jpg then copy in to the “Theme” folder from my SlideShow files.

If you have extracted RafTools.zip to a directory with NO spaces. You can drag and drop SlideShow.xml onto the raf_compiler.exe in RafTools folder you should then get SlideShow.raf in the same directory as SlideShow.xml.

Edit the icons if you wish then drag and drop the SlideShowTheme.xml onto the p3tcompiler.exe in RafTools folder. You will then get slideshowtheme.p3t in the same directory as slideshowtheme.xml.

Install to your PS3 and see how it looks :).

I think this is a great dev opportunity to make a simple gui for this.

Wow. What you have done here, GB, is quite amazing if I do say so myself. A ps3 theme that scrolls through its wallpapers like a sideshow? That's awesome, a feature I been hoping would be included in it ages ago. The fact that you've discovered a loophole to allow this, is surely no easy feat. Way to go GB, you never fail to impress. First Multiple Dynamic themes and now this. Your themes are always superb and coated with creativity – you've been a inspiration on many theme-creators I'm sure. At least you have for me. Thanks for all the hard work in discovering this – hopefully other creators will follow this guide and we'll start seeing more SlideShow themes uploaded. Nice work! Cool

What browser are you using? Try downloading it without any block-up blockers on. I just tried it – the links working fine.

@ toxic

My last post didn’t go through correctly but I have fixed the link the http was at the end.

@ Madgod

Thanks buddy 🙂 it’s good to have someone who is gratefull for what is given and doesn’t expect or request for more. 🙂

I have now worked how to fade between the images. This makes some themes allot smoother 🙂

Okay I take it when u change the extension it still says .raf. So just go into SlideShowTheme.xml with notepad and change the “Anim_1.jpg” to “SlideShow.raf” create the SlideShow.p3t. Then when u install the theme it should still work 🙂

@ tinjastin

There is a 15mb limit so it depends on what size your images are. Here 2 sizes and maximum number of backgrounds you can have. 1920×1080 you can have 15 and 1280×720 you can have 34. For icons use the p3textractor to use other peoples icons. To create your own get Photoshop and watch YouTube tutorials to get some cool effects. Also learn how to use automate and actions so you won’t have to repeat the same steps for every icon 🙂

What do you think of having random image change for the slideshow themes?

@glow ball , thanks for that headsup, i thought there arent any limitation in regards to background images…

your tutorial was very good and it helped me to learn here, actually its really my first time to make a theme and a slide show theme and they've worked succesfull… my first slide show theme only have 4pcs 1080p wallpapers, and so i was thinking to add more backgrounds (thats why i asked here again whats the limitation if theres any, and now i know that the max number is only 15 for 1920 x 1080 wallpapers…)

i cant say more its really great and awesome! and thank you for that… i hope there are more ways of these kind of tutorials or techniques later on for ps3 theme making, slideshows theme is the best for me as for now, dynamic theme making is also good but i have to learn it later maybe…

I really feel like a tool for asking but does anyone know why I can not save an image in PS cs5 to .dds.

The only error i can see is under the save button it says that 'the image is not a power of 2'. I have tried to resize the image to 1080×1080 or to 1920×960 but the save button still will not appear.

 

I am trying to turn my Batman_Arkham_City1.0 theme into a slide show but failing.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

@ FukSN

I think your DDS configuration is messed up. On the nvidia dds save screen(after save as in Photoshop) click “write config…” and check the box “allow non-power of two DXT”. This should fix if not download the nvidia DDS plugin version 7.83 that is what I use 🙂

Nice one I can't believe I never saw the 'non power of two' button before. Even after you said it it took me 5 mins to spot it LOL.

 

My image has been saved as a .dds file now but it still wouldn't let me save it as a DXT instead I saved it as a '5:6:5  RGB (16 bit)' ……will that make any difference except to the size of the file?

 

Thanks and sorry to pick your brain.

Hello,

I followed all your steps glowball and everything seemed perfect, I just kept

8 files for the backrounds so i never touched notedpad++

When I get to the final step and drag Anim_1.jpg onto ps3compiler.exe

an error message comes up and says

[ Error 2 ] the system cannot find the file specified

failed

Any clues as to why this is happening ??

Thanks
