Here is a new release of PSP-PDA, the PDA applications for PSP.
For those who haven't seen previous versions of this great peace of homebrew, PSP-PDA is a set of PDA programs including notepad, music player, image viewer, address book, calendar, calculator, and clock.
It has been written by Rob_psp. It is distributed under GNU licence, and sources are provided.
My contribution to this projet is MINOR, all credits should remain to Rob_psp !
What's new then ? it now supports IR-keyboard !
The IR keyboard part has been tested using a Targus Universal IR Wireless keyboard.
How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.
If you want to discuss on this emulator, you can do it there :
zx81's forum on dcemu network or zx81's forum on qj.net

Excellent work, thank you very much. this app is on of the best, another zx-81 homebrew to my memory stick collection,
Nice one, zx.
Now I can sketch out code without moving over to my workstation
Would be more perfect if you could implement the Danzeff virtual keyboard?
hey can you list or make a read me so I know the controls so I only have to use my ir keys because my buttons are messed up
thankyou very much
I read the read me file and followed the instructions but still it says this game could not be started. please help.
very good homebrew.
But some bugs:
When I want to change theme (main menu), there is un "psp crash". Same thing when I want to see week events in the calendar.
Thank you, congratulations!
I hope next version will give us some languages (I can help for french) and I hope we can read .pdf and .doc
You have to put it in the game150 directory if you're using a custom firmware, or in game directory if you have a 1.5 fw.
This homebrew can't be started with an original Sony firmware (until 1.5)
hey one thing could you add a font changer or a guide on how to change fonts becuase I tried and nothing it crashes.
It's the same with the theme manager, it saves the new configuration and then crash. But when you restart the apps, the new theme is active. I will fix it in next release,
in notepad mode when I press ESC on the Targus keyboard, it always reacts to be a " " (space function), while I can't type anything, though Tab, Enter ArrowKeys are functioning well.
In the Basic pikey sample, when pressing 1, it only shows "pressed scancode: 2" Is this normal?
hold select when the psp SCEA screen comes up that should fix the problem.
In addition, if I move the Square one the vitural keyboard in PSP-PDA to, for example "e", then pressed ESC on Targus, it will type "e"...should I remap something?
Could you help me?
If you need an extra pair of eyes to track down any bugs, let me know, and I'll go through the source. (I am a C coder with plenty of experience, several unreleased psp apps to help me with my retro computer collection (cassette emulation for zx80,zx81,zx spectrum etc))
its a fantastic application Zx - thanks!
ever used Freemind the mindmanaging software on linux/windows? it would be incredible to have that app on the PSP.
lol, it could be fun, but i think the psp screen is a bit too small for such apps,
Take care, Zx
It's working now, thanks a lot!
Though I don't get the reason of pressing Select can help XD
Anyone to explain?
I've modified this homebrew as less as possible, and it behaves like this in the original version ...
I haven't tried, but you will have first to convert the kxploit 1.5 EBOOT to 2.0.
Anyway why do you stay in 2.6 fw, when 3.0x-OE firmwares are so good ??? I suggest you to downgrade to 1.5, then upgrade to custom firmware,
I've been trying to get the Targus IR keyboard to work with pspPDA but without any luck whatsoever. Do I need to copy over any drivers or do anything else other than extract the zipped files to PSP->Game ?
Nevermind. The IR signal is either extremely weak or my Targus battery is low. Does your Targus keyboard require the IR antennae to be nearly touching the psp?
It works fine at about 10 centimeters from the keyboard ...
It would be a very useful app if it didn't keep crashing all the time... at least on my 3.52 M33-2 PSP it's unstable as hell.
thanks for your comment. Try to use the latest version, it should be better. Can you give me some more details, what did you do before it crashed etc ...
Thanks for your comment . Yes i've added it in my to-do list,
Plese, Zx release a new version for PSP Slim
its a very good homebrew.
For some reason the clock on the app is wrong by one hour. I can't even switch area or even put in my own. I'd also like the ability to read(maybe write) .doc, .pdf, and others. I would also like an easier button layout like for going back why not use circle like the psp and x to select/view in address book (rather than x for a new person). And overall just a redo of the whole visual layout (like a menu rather than a button guide in address book) and configure to make it easier. I know its a lot to think about, but it would be very much welcomed. Thnx for the app anyway
Please reply i really need help here. It says its corrupted. My psp is system software 4.01 m33-2 so please tell me what to do.
it says corrupted because you didn't go down to the program file...i wish this worked with pikey...wonder why psphugo does and this doesn't ?
