Devhook Launcher Mod 1.65c

Posted Oct 26, 2006 at 8:01PM by QJ Staff Listed in: Homebrew Development Tags: Chunglam, DevHook, Korea, TheBuzzer
From version 1.65b, Chunglam is now up and about reminding us that the Devhook Launcher/VSHEX Mod ain’t over till the whole dev thingy is over. We’ve counted just a little less than a week and bang! Another update called version 1.65c. This time it’s quite a smaller one though, and here’s the changelog:
  • Compatible with 2.71SE-B
  • Added Korean font (generated from TrueType font) and language file by friends from Korea
  • Added Chinese game title macro “names.big5″ by friend from Taiwan
  • Added Simplified Chinese help file by CrUmp Zhao
  • Updated Portuguese Brazil language and help file by Pender666
As we’ve taken account in the past blogs dedicated to Chunglam’s Devhook Launcher, the mod is actually a bit like a spin-off of TheBuzzer‘s Devhook GUI Launcher Mod. The developer stresses that this is mainly for Korean users. Anything you want to know on how to install and how to use the mod can be found on the Readme.txt file. Also check out the mini-faq.txt if you got questions that Chunglam might just be able to answer. Thanks and keep ‘em good stuff coming, Chunglam!

The Guild Wars series has been a massive hit for the past years. Will the third stand-alone campaign follow the trend? We’ve covered the game pre-launch and the list of features are definitely very promising. Apart from the new missions, skills, armor, professions (2), and endless replayability, we’ve mentioned a few times about the Heroes, Hero Battles, and Templates features. ‘Course nothing beats playing the real game so if you’re the first ones to grab a copy, do let us know what you think of it.

Zouzz develops homebrew applications in French, and we’ve seen him publish several of his works in English-speaking forums. We’ve spotted one of his latest from Gueux — one called Rapid Dump v0.1. It’s actually his first application for PSP firmware 1.5. The app lets you create back-up for your plug-in quickly. These files include opening_plugin.rco, gameboot.pmf and topmenu_plugin.rco.
The dev illustrated how the ‘brew is installed in the readme.txt, all you need to do is just follow the sequence. By the time you get it running on your PSP, you can dump these abovementioned files in the file dump of root of the Memory Stick.

Zouzz plans to create a dump for F0 entirely in 1x, another one for F1 entirely in 1X, and a UMD dump. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open for his updates so keep checking QJ for news.

MAZDASPEED3 will now be included in EA’s Need for Speed: Carbon car line-up. We won’t be surprised, really, as this is all part of EA’s campaign with major gaming retailers around the world to boost the NFS: Carbon title sales. EA has in fact joined forces with Channel M, EB Games, and Gamestop to set out a fierce marketing campaign for NFS: Carbon all over North America.

The campaign will include exposing players to Mazda in-games, raffled pre-orders at EB Games and Gamestop where gamers can win a real MAZDASPEED3 car, mall tournaments, parties, and a Las Vegas championship where the winner gets a chance to win his/her own MAZDASPEED3 as well.
The game will be available for retail (and download for mobile) on November 1 onwards in the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS2, Xbox, GameCube, PC, and mobile.

Curious about the speed and stats of the MAZDASPEED3? This baby is actually one of the quickest and fastest front-wheel drive cars in the world. A lightweight car with a sizable engine producing 263-horsepower and 280 lb/ft of torque, the swift MAZDASPEED3 revs up at 0-60 mph time well under six seconds and kicks off to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. The name says it all.
