I can confirm it worked with no issue with me. Just took a little while to get used to the interface. Make sure you never torch any button beside a and b. r trigger (or was it l?) tries to take you to another page but fails as you need internet. There is int too much to do as only the main page works and if you try to go to any game pages you cant. Again it was just made for testing purposes :) BTW have you tried my modifications? no need to upload the iso or anything as all i need to know if the new links actually lead to the 3 files i put on the disk. :D

here it is folks!
burned to my typical discs lately@16x (Verbatim digital vinyls) on my laptop.

Boots fairly quick and im sure could be better with dummying but this is just a quick test to see if the internet part works.

It loads up to this:

and if you hit the home button....

Yea not a problem. I just gotta figure out an easy way to fix the CDI after it's been made. Until then though just send me updates and I'll generate it.

If you are speaking about pw3 then yes an unedited (other than the usual stuff+some magic) cdi is posted in the thread here. Be warned it crashes fairly quick though and I don't believe it's my fault (maybe though).

If instead you are asking about DC-Explorer then that too is listed here but you are 100% on your own with that. It can be burned to a CD and booted though.

new update http://www.mediafire.com/file/yxcmyd2mg ... OWSER2.zip

Has two sfd movies to test (realized i made a spelling mistake in the files lol) also threw in a netlink html as a test to see if it loads other htm files. Just want to make sure these three things and if both sfds have sound (made one myself and one is from a game) thanks
