| ||3D graphical MUD Client||The client uses TCP/IP to connect to a server, which will provide strategic and tactical information regarding the game. Operational decisions are made by the client. The client supports audio using /dev/dsp, graphics using SPS2 (code by Jonathan "Kazan" Hobson), and uses both the pads and the keyboard as interfaces. It will allow people to talk to each other, fight each other and the monsters that are in the MUD, and solve any available quests (two so far).
Models are stored in Milkshape 3D format, textures in swizzled tm2 format and audio is currently in 11025 mono 8-bit format, though this could change later.
Players can move around with the directional buttons and the left stick, control the camera with the right stick, interact with the environment using the square button, fight using the cross button. Many other options (spells, option screens, mail boxes, et cetera) are available. See the file "CONTROLS" for details.
The project is currently looking for people that want to help coding and testing. Please contact me! (Contact me if you download the code, want to use the server, or for any other reason).||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.

| ||Dark Racer SPS2||Following the tutorials by Mr Henry Fortuna, i shall make a 3D racing game with collision detection, physics, AI and the use of Force Feedback. Using SPS2, There shall be two types of race, a time trail and a race against another car, with future plans to make a 2 player race. All the code shall be commented and used for others to progress on. A nice menu system shall be put into place as well.||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|
| ||Pinp Is Not Pool|
====== Everything is now uploaded and in final form as far as we are concerned ====
This project is (at this stage) exactly what it says it isn't: a Pool game for the PS2 :)
The intention when this project was started was to create an arcadey Pool game with powerups, jumps, different playing surfaces etc... We were not able to achieve this in the given time, but otherwise it's a nice entertaining game :)
The game has been in development by us - a team of 4 at the University of Canberra - for about a year now, as our final year Engineering project. It was done mostly working on Saturdays and perhaps a few days here and there where we could fit them in.
To do in the future (probably by other willing people, since we don't have access to PS2s outside of uni):
Implement the 'arcadey' portion.
Make physics run better (on VUs?).
Whatever anyone comes up with :).
| ||PlayStation 2 for Education||The PlayStation 2 for Education project is for those of us using the PlayStation 2 for education. The project is a place where we pass on to others how we use the PlayStation 2.
The project will have reviews of software we use to educate ourselves and software we use when we are at our schools or other places of learning.
The project will be a resource for other projects that are building software for education, providing a place to find people interested in some topic or education related project. It can provide help or pointers to more information when that is needed.
The PlayStation 2 and the Linux kit provide a good way to learn. This project provides a place to start learning with the PlayStation 2.||None|
| ||Playstation 2 Linux System Documentation||The P2LSD Project provides documentation for setting up, using and programming for the Playstation 2 Linux system. Items included in the project are FAQs, HOW-TOs and Handbooks about very specific PS2 Linux topics such as "How to use the IPU" and "The Memory Card FAQ".||None|
| ||printer packs||to write, post, modify, and repair various printer drivers for linux ps2. files will provide drivers for printing via network, or USB. ||None|
| ||PS2 3D programming Tutorial||This is a project of a tutorial about 3D programming with linux kit and SPS2 library module. This tutorial start from the basic of 3D programming and goes on on more detailed topics. The tutorials is composed by a pdf document and accompaning examples. Some tools written in Visual Basic .NET are used throughout the tutorial to accomplish various tasks. VB was used because it was quick to produce utility with and it produces better interface rather using plain C++. VB.NET make also possible to access C++ code through Managed C++.
I hope that you'll enjoy my work. Good work to everyone and have fun with PS2.||None|
| ||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|
| ||Texture Swizzling||ezSwizzle is a Windows MFC application that allows you to swizzle/unswizzle your textures. It reads a number of formats and has a batch feature to convert all your textures quickly. It generates TIM2 files, but with the source provided it is very easy to change it to generate any format you are using. The documentation also explains the theory behind texture swizzle and has a table with swizzleable sizes and respective speed increases.||None|
| ||The libps2dev HTML Documentation||The libps2dev documentation is merely stored as text files on the Linux system, and looking up functions is a laborious task. The aim of the libps2HTML project is to create a fully navigable, fully-hyperlinked documentation for the libps2dev library. Readers will be able to submit comments about functions/structures etc., adding their own usage guidelines to the documentation and sharing useful tips.
This will enable a much smoother workflow for those who have a PC next to their Linux kit, so they can look up details quickly and in parallel with their programming, without having to have a network set up.
It will be available in a plain-HTML format and as a .CHM file for those who wish to download for later perusal.||None|
| ||Xaal'Tiqincis V||Xaal'Tiqincis V is basically the fifth regeneration of the old
Xaal'Tiqincis program that the Digital Challenge Group started
writing in 1989. This time without the graphics from Jan-Willem van
Aalst, but with 3D graphics provided by the ps2mud client, a project
elsewhere on this site.
This project will contain example server code for the ps2mud as well
as documentation about the project, as well as form an umbrella for
all related projects. Note that to run the software, you will need the pike programming languages working on your platform.||None|
