| ||Compiled For Your Convenience|
A bunch of useful scripts, binaries, etc of all the stuff you're likely to compile yourself, to help get things up and running quickly when installing a new Linux Kit.
If you have compiled something and would like to submit it to the project, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with an attachment or link. The full list of project admins is available on the project page.
A list of links to useful ps2linux related websites is in the "Docs" tab.
CFYC now has a website.

| ||DJ Revolution||DJ Revolution is a real time DJ simulation that uses the analog controller DualShock2 (for Playstation 2) to scratch, switch records and tracks, adjust pitch, volume, and effects, and generally just remix stuff on the fly. It supports customizable records with user defined tracks, reversable crossfaders with different tapers, and customizable textures for the turntables, mixers, and record labels. Scripts will be included for creating new records and converting tracks to the 48k stereo 16 bit signed audio format that must be used.
Eventually, I'd like to add in a bemani-style music game where you can battle your friends in 2 player mode||None|
| ||Elite Black Edition||Based on the tutorials provided by Dr H S Fortuna a remake of the 1980's classic 'Elite' for the SONY PlayStation 2 Linux Development Kit. In the initial release only the original game will be available, ie trading/combat, however future addtions include the ability to play 'online', more ships, features (ability to fly around the planet surface for example, co-operation between players, fleet management and control, planetary system control.
Work in progress, currently will render all objects, and basic trading is being worked in at the moment.

| ||GNU binutils||Provide source and binaries of up-to-date versions of GNU binutils with EE patches.||None|

| ||PlayStation IDE for Windows||PSXIDE codenamed 'KONDEV' has arrived, well at least a snapshot of my development and associated documentation that I have done.
KONDEV is (will be) the ultimate in console development so you can develop for consoles like the PlayStation, PlayStation2 (Native or Linux based), Nintendo64, GameCube, XBox, PC (Windows and Linux) you get EVERYTHING you need including editors, debugger, emulator, compilers, docs, libaries, tools. Oh yeah AND THE SOURCE CODE.
Contained in the zip file is the following :
Windows Binary of the IDE
Windows Dynamic/Static Libraries for the Emulator (YES!)
Windows Dynamic/Static Libraries for the Debugger
Various tools, work in progress
The source code to the LOT of it|

| ||PS2 Distributed Computing Resource||In between playing games, compiling applications, listening to music, etc., there is much unused floating-point power that could be used for distributed computing projects, like Folding@Home, SETI@Home, or Distributed.Net.
It is our aim to bring together several ps2 programmers that wouldn't mind discussing the advantages of having a client for the ps2 and also helping any compliant projects by porting their client, and eventually optimizing the client for the Emotion Engine.
Obviously, these distributed computing projects are not completely open source, but usually all interesting code is released. So volunteer porters will likely have to sign a NDA with the project saying they will not leak information about how the data is verified to be from an authentic client.||None|
| ||PS2 Linux Yabasic||I wanted to clone the PS2Yabasic editor/interpreter from PAL demo discs and make it run under linux. I couldn't do it. If anyone wants to take this project over from me, e-mail email@example.com||None|
| ||Pulsar||A 3d space ship shoot-em-up. Will run under native mode (not linux) using the psal library. The psal library is being developed along side Pulsar.||None|
| ||Quake 2 for PS2||The single purpose of this project is to port the Quake 2 game source-code to the PS2 platform. Yes, Quake 2 is now officially "old news", but you might be surprised to learn that Quake 1 through Quake 3 use the same codebase. Once the porting effort is done, the project may evolve to incorporate more modern features.
Note that you will need game data from the Quake 2 CD for any of this to be of use, or you must have a completely new set of game data.||None|
| ||The BlackRhino Linux Distribution||BlackRhino is a free Debian-based GNU/Linux software distribution for the Sony PlayStation 2.
It contains over 1,200 software packages to aid in using and creating programs for the Sony PlayStation 2 GNU/Linux kit. The software packages range in functionality from simple games, to text editors, compilers, web servers, windowing systems, database systems, graphics packages, mail servers and a variety of other tools and utilities.
It is released in the hopes that an up-to-date Linux distribution will aid hobbyist game and embedded systems programmers in gaining new skills and creating new software for the PS2 Linux system.
| ||VU emulator||VU emu is an emulator for the PS2 VU1 vectorial unit developed in C++. The aim of the project is to be able to test small micro code routines and, once the code is safe, use it on the PS2.
If you have a PS2 Linux Kit you should forget this program and use Sauce's Visual VU Debugger. Sauces debugger is a powerful tool which perform a lot more functionality than VU emu. But for the rest of the people who does not have a Linux Kit this tool can be usefull. In fact I get involved in this project be cause I was tired of see how all the Linux Kit development tools like VCL are not distributed under open source.
This version is a very early beta of the product and it should contain dozens of bugs, I promise to debug it as soon as I can. I started this project as an 2 hours entertainment and, finally, I need more than three weeks to do this beta. I am a little feed up of this application so I do not test it deeply. Please, report any error found to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to be fixed.Formula 1||None|
