This is actually a PSP musicdisk, not a Playstation prod as listed (no PSP platform yet). Props to Guybrush for targeting just about every homebrew platform at least once :)

Apologies to bernielomax and Soul D - luaplayer/mikmod messed up loading your samples and they all turned into static :( I still think the songs sound pretty cool though.
Also apologies to everyone looking at the lua script source for this thing, the dir is waaay too messy with extra crap, I'll put up a tidied up final ver soon.

Move the analog stick! It controls the 3d vector-shapes.

I don't like this at all. Slow and ugly effects and the music is either bugged or ExTREMELY bad.

StingRay: me neither. The effects are all coded in LUA, on top of luaplayer, which is the slowest possible way to do it. Had I time I would have hardcoded them -into- luaplayer but writing the entire thing as a lua script in plaintext meant that the prod took 4 hours instead of 40. Take a look at the .lua file and you'll see how much effort was required to get this going.

And yeah, luaplayer's mikmod lib was really messed up, didn't load large samples and turned them into static. Nullsleep's track sounds good, as do most of the ones near the end.

Elkfriend: Did you listen to nullsleep's track? luaplayer's mikmod lib trashed the samples in some of the songs, but the small ones came through. It's the 8th track or so so I don't blame you if you didn't make it.
The slowness is because this ran on top of a VERY early version of the luaplayer LUA script interpreter (not written by me, see luaplayer.org ) which was not at that time very fast at anything.

Some of the tracks near the end sound pretty good, but unfortunately most tracks are unlistenable due to the static. The playlist should loop around when you select next/prev track.

The "I hate pouet" image made me laugh ;-) I couldn't recognize who it was though.

I'm hoping to see more PSP releases from you :-)
I myself just recently picked one up, and have been having a blast messing around/coding for it.

I just realized that this enables the USB connection if your cable is attached :-)
Bug perhaps?
