| ||3DX||3DX is a Linux distrobution for the Playstation 2. Guides, kernels, precompiled programs, and support can be found here.||None|
| ||adam||As graphics hardware becomes faster, real time applications are starting to use high end production techniques, such as higher order surfaces, and procedural shading. Simlarlary users of production renderers are looking to use graphics acceleration, withouth compromising quality.
Adam is an attempt to produce a renderer which explores these converging areas of interest. It is based on the angel renderer (www.dctsystems.freeserve.co.uk), but is severely optimised to make use of the PS2 hardware.
It is RenderMan compatable.
| ||Aidoru AI engine||Initially the project will consist of a vector unit accelerated AI engine for PS2 Linux. I hope to provide functionality for a few Neural Net architectures, A* and other pathfinding routines, various tree search methods, Prolog-style (but faster) logic, and various other useful AI game algorithms. Please view the README file for details and coding standards. If someone can donate some code/time, I would like to eventually add graphics and networking support to the engine.||None|
| ||APA Partition Support||This project provides the tools and information for running PS2 Linux on an APA (Aligned Partition Allocation) partition. This allows your PS2 Linux and PS2 Game Data to co-exist on the same hard-drive.||None|
| ||Audio Engine||Audio Engine is a API that allows the user to call simple functions such as 'PlaySound' to add sound effects to their projects. Allows upto 16 voices to play at once, each voice having it's own volume and left/right settings.
As the API grows, things such as effects like low/high passes, reverb, echo etc will be added based on what users would like.||None|
| ||Ball Game||Welcome to Ball Game, your aim is to direct your ball to the goal on each level, sound easy? Then think again, you dont have direct control over your ball, instead you have to shoot it around the level, a bit like a pool ball, but this isn't some nice flat pool table, you'll have to content with gravity, wind, water and slopes, of course you're not entirely helpless, no you can collect power spheres along the way which allow you to change the properties of you ball (such as making it bouncy, or solid and heavy, or even turning it into a cube), but remember you can only carry a few of these spheres at once, it's up to you to decide which ones you want and which ones you leave behind.||None|
| ||BlockBuster:A 3D-arcade console game||BlockBuster is a 3d-arcade console game for the PS2Linux.
| ||C and C++ Programming Newbie Society||The aim of the C and C++ Programming Newbie Society is to teach programming to a wide variety of skill levels. Ranging from people who have never written code in their lives, to people who are aces in other languages (Such as Perl, PHP, or Visual Basic). There will be links to tutorials, code snippets to download, compile on their PS2's, and learn from, forums in which to discuss programming techniques, and ask for C/C++ help. I myself am on the journey of discovery with C/C++, and will therefore be posting my progress for others to follow. The Playstation2 Linux platform is a new and exciting opportunity for would-be programmers to arise and share their ideas, this project will attempt to bring their ideas to life with the magic of C/C++ and PS2 Linux.||None|
| ||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 email@example.com 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.

| ||DaBox demo||This program is intended as a demo for graphics and general programming. It places the user in a 6-sided (4 sides, roof, floor) box basically in which all the sides are texture mapped in the RGB channels and then gloss mapped in the alpha channel. It allows the user to pan the camera based using an analog stick and translate it using the other. It also contains a collision detection algorithm and uses SPS2, PS2GL, PS2SDK, GSLib, and EE-Newlib. It uses the core and both vector units, along with a few IOP modules, including a pad manager, a sound driver (it will have sound), and I can't decide if I should map the analog sticks to the game axes in the IOP or the EE core (I hope I don't have to use a VU for this). It consists of three components: initialization, application-stage graphics processing, the rendering loop, and the input/output components. I render the textures using a small ambient light and I don't believe that any specular or diffuse lighting will play a part.||None|
| ||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|
| ||EffecTV for PS2||"EffecTV" is a real-time video effect processor.
You can enjoy movies, TV programs and any other video stream through the many amazing effects.
"EffecTV for PS2" is a specialized version for PlayStation2 Linux.
It uses the power of graphics processing of PlayStation2 to create
more amazing effect.||None|
| ||EmotionVJ||The purpose of this project is to create a PlayStation2-based visual mixer, that allows you to create your own "clips". Ideally it will work with 3d objects, particles, text and images that you can store on your HDD.
Far future plans: support for EyeToy or USB Camera and USB sound sampling (for real-time synchro to the music).
It will be like Moderngroove MOS Edition, but open for new visualisation sources.||None|

GSSR will eventually support any dance pad that is compatible with the PSX versions of Konami's Step Step Revolution and Dance Dance Revolution. It wil also eventually support tempo matching of (almost) any MP3 to sync game arrows with any song loaded.||None|
| ||Homebrew Haven||Homebrew Haven provides PS2/Linux kit owners with the documentation, tools and libraries they need to write PS2 native software that is loaded by the RTE bootloader. Such programs are assured full access to the PS2's hardware without the performance and operating system penalties imposed by the Linux operating system. Eventually Homebrew Haven hopes to provide demo, game, and application developers all the tools needed to run both standard and kit-bootable PS2 software.||None|
| ||IGGS_PS2 3D engine||IGGS_PS2 is the name of the project our team has taken. What this project is about is utilizing the strengths of the PlayStation 2 hardware, as exposed through the SPS2 development library and libps2dev , in a meaningful and understandable way in order to provide strong foundations for a modern game engine using techniques that focus on hardware friendly approaches rather than complete reliance on the Linux operating system abstraction of the PlayStation 2 architecture.
Our engine will work towards providing a graphics API (Transformation, Lighting, Clipping, Texturing, etc...) a basic game logic, animation and basics physics support.
Our engine will feature also a model loader based on 3DSIntmd and IntmdLoader as provided by the PS2conv project:
Ideas and suggestions were taken also from Henry Fortuna's PlayStation 2 Linux home-page at:
A lot of thanks go also to Sparky, Sauce, Cashimor, nAo, Fafalada, ERP and others on the #sps2 channel for their help, guidance and moral support (and some deserved kicks in the butt ;)).
We want to make a point of a good documentation of the engine's components and of the algorithm/ideas chosen during development as we hope the experience we gather working on PlayStation 2 might be useful to others as well as to ourselves. We will make such documentation available in the future through journals published in HTML format as well as providing pre-compiled and working binaries.||None|
