Picto Cube

Ever wanted a handy-dandy giant robot to destroy your enemies without any assistance from you? Well, this definitely isn’t the app that’ll help you fulfill that burning desire for robotic revenge, but it’s an interesting diversion while you amass the technology to build a mech.

This, dear friends, is Picto Cube. Phantom X made his first LUA application on one of these well-known designer cubes. Early on, we had Alatnet with his 3D Cube app on LUA. Months later, Insomniac197 made a demo for 3D cube rendering on TIFF. Well, Phantom X’s Picto Cube, while being a new version of the said application genre, has its own little claim to fame.

In the case of Picto Cube, it serves as a basic image viewer. As you can see from the two screenshots above, it does a pretty nice rendition of the pictures he’s included. More than anything else, the ice cube looks rather relaxing to look at. You’ll need to set the pictures as 256×256 pixels though, or you’ll be getting a pretty ugly looking cube.

Of course, Picto Cube isn’t without its shortcomings, especially for a new LUA app. There currently isn’t any capability for zooming in to get a better view of the pictures. The basic picture set into the system is the tutorial that tells you to choose a d-pad direction to view a picture, but without a zoom function, it can be pretty hard to read. If you’ve checked out the above mentioned predecessors of the Picto Cube, you’ll also be hoping that future versions will include functions for changing the size of the cube and the spin. Perhaps more importantly, it’s not really a cube if you can only see four of the sides. Then again, those are things that the homebrew community can help with.

To install this LUA application, unzip the file, and then place the unzipped folder into the Applications subfolder of the LUA Player folder in your PSP. Other than that, just be careful and always check with the forums to see what you’ll need to run your version of LUA Player. Other than that, congratulations to Phantom X on his first try! Enjoy the download, and let him know what you think on the forums.
