USpeed Profile Manager is a plugin that allows you to create multiple profiles on PSP, thus, share the same console without erasing the savedatas of other players. Likewise if the game only allows one save, it is possible to override this rule and create more than one.

The homebrew application is compiled by USpeed and can manage up to 20 profiles, with some customisable elements such as name, image (40x40px) and colors.

This was submitted to the PSP Genesis Competition 2011.

Installation

Please use either Full or Lite version, do not activate both versions at the same time.

  • profileManager.prx (Full) - Supports BMP and PNG imges.
  • profileManager-noPNG.prx (Lite) - Uses less memory, without PNG support.

Copy the prx file corresponding to the version you want to use to /PSP/sepugins/ of your Memory Stick.

For full version, edit vsh.txt and/or game.txt in the same seplugins folder by writing this line

ms0:/seplugins/profileManager.prx 1

For Lite/No PNG version, add this line to vsh.txt and/or game.txt instead

ms0:/seplugins/profileManager-noPNG.prx 1

Reboot your PSP.

User guide

How does it work?

Each profile is stored in seperate folders /PSP/SAVEDATA_<NUMBER>/ (up to 20).

Current/activated profile is on SAVEDATA folder to work with standard.

When you switch profiles, USpeed Profile Manager will switch between all folders SAVEDATA_<NUMBER> in order to activate current profile on SAVEDATA folder.

A savegame in folder USPM20110315 will allow to customize your name, icon and colors.

Create new profile

Create a directory /PSP/SAVEGAME_<NUMBER>/ (where <NUMBER> is the profile number, e.g. SAVEDATA_1).

In SAVEDATA_<NUMBER> folder, create a folder named USPM20110315 (or copy the provided one).

In USPM20110315 folder, copy your picture profile.bmp or profile.png and create a file named profile.infos.

Those are the files you will use to customize profile information and picture.

Customize profile

Go to /PSP/SAVEGAME/USPM20110315/ or /PSP/SAVEGAME_<NUMBER>/USPM20110315/ folder on your Memory Stick.

  • profile.bmp must be 40x40px at 24 bits in BITMAP format.
  • profile.png must be 40x40px (only for full version).
  • profile.infos includes name, button configuration settings, show/hide frame, customize colors etc.

You can edit profile.infos with any text editor such as Notepad ++. Below is the sample profile is which you can find in the folder, please refer to readme for more details.
