PS-CoverFLow is a homebrew Cover Flow application for PSP. It is a MP3 player application that is coded in lua.

Installation

Copy all contents of the RAR archive into the ms_root. The game has to be in ms0:/PSP/GAME/ or else it will not work properly.

Note: You must have at least one image in ms0:/PICTURE/covers/ folder to run the coverflow or else it will not work. Also you must have your music under ms0:/MUSIC/.

User guide

About album art

Your album art must be the same name as your MP3 (e.g. test.jpg for your image if your song is test.mp3).

You may get compatible album art images from amazon.com and search for your album of the song of you want. then save the bigger image of it, which should 240x240 in size. Not the small thumbnails.

Alternatively you must have JPG or PNG images with the size 240x240 for it to look nice or it will be glitchy.
