Wave and Sparks Animation[edit]

The animated wave is spline.elf, and the sparks is particles.elf. This files loads his settings from .mnu files. There are several groups of settings for different animations of the wave/spark that appears at different screens of the PS3 (e.g: the wave/sparks inside the music player uses different settings than coldboot, and different in XMB). The settings inside the .mnu files are different for each display mode

  • The wave uses some libraries under moyou path

Sparks dynamic animation[edit]

The sparks movement is affected by the displacement of the cursor when moving along XMB columns and rows (left-right, or up-down directions). When the cursor moves fast to a new position the sparks "tends" to move in the opposite direction trying to mimic a real fluid like air or water (in other words... is "reading" the position of the cursor to adjust particle directions)

To see this effect is good to configure a black wallpaper and enable all the options iside "theme settings" to "original" (this will make the sparks very visibles). Then start moving the cursor from left column (user) <---> to right column (friends)... or from top item <---> to bottom item in any colums (more visible in a column with several items, like game)... and note how the sparks directions are affected :)

Sparks texture[edit]

Info
Dimensions: 128x128pixels
Info
Format: TGA (Targa)
Info
Format Settings: 32bpp

proc iridiscent.tga

iridescent.tga doesnt color all sparkles. Roughly half of them are dynamically generated, when you strip the coloring options and color the tga to solid red, roughly half of the sparks are red, rest are white

Debug files[edit]

  • DEVGUI libraries (unknown use)
    • lib/devgui/DebugGui.vpo
    • lib/devgui/DebugGui.fpo
  • PARTICLES libraries (seems to be variations of the sparks animation specific for debug)
    • lib/particles/particles_quads_debug.fpo
    • lib/particles/particles_quads_debug.vpo

MNU Settings[edit]

There are only four .MNU setting files: BACKGROUND.mnu, HDR.mnu, LINE1.mnu, and PARTICLES.mnu. A copy of this files is located in the root of the .qrc container to be used as the general settings, and another 17 copies of them are located under "override" paths, this override variants are intended to change the settings for the 17 different enviroments where BACKGROUND/HDR/LINE1/PARTICLES are used

Additionally PARTICLES.mnu has two complementary files named PARTICLES_SPE.mnu, and PARTICLES_UI.mnu located at root of the .qrc container, this two files are unique (commonly used in all the enviroments)

Examples are from firmware 4.76

PARTICLES_UI.mnu[edit]

The particles animations reacts dinamically to the movements of the icons in XMB and to the DualShock 3 or Move Motion Controller sensors (gyroscope and accelerometer), this settings defines that interactions

  • icon - There is a group of animations that are related with the position of the icons on XMB, are the settings with names icon. The dynamics of the particles behaves like a fluid enclosed in a sealed container where the amount of fluid is constant (like a sealed fishtank filled with gas), when the icons moves in a direction in XMB this displacement drags some particles behind them. This animation only is applyed vertically
  • dpad - It seems this ones works pretty similar than the icon ones, but instead of moving a few particles it moves the whole particle field. This animation is only applyed horizontally
  • dshake - Another group of settings is relarted with the controller sensors, are the ones with names dshake. The dynamics here works as if you where grabbing the fishtank with your hands and shaking it entirelly. The particles can be "pushed" laterally by moving the dualshock horizontally, and increases the randomness when moving dualshock up and down, also it seems it can detect the rotations/flips of the dualshock and the "g force" when moving it in a single direction violentlly (be carefull to not throw the dualshock to the TV for science)

  • brw = Brownian
  • rot = rotation ?
  • imp = impulse ?
  • g = g force ?
  • thresh = threshold
  • coeff = coefficient
  • scl = scale
  • x,y,z = axis

MNU Override Settings[edit]

This is a experimental table to try to show all the .mnu settings changes between the different modes, because all them are variations of the same 4 files is only needed to list the changes

The table will be big, but is the best way i see to compare and document the different visual modes, the settings in the examples are not firmware independent but is needed to make this comparison at least one time for one of the firmwares to understand how works the dynamic changes in XMB with background color/brightness, enviroment color/brightness, the wave and sparks animation, etc...
