    I know there were a few people looking into it, and some getting pretty far too, but I don't think anyone ever completed anything.
    I guess there just wasn't enough interest.

    mr_lou got a reaction from GregoryRasputin in 8-bit Memoirs Issue #1 released!!!   
    Small update:

    VLC is improving. A few weeks ago (or so), I tried the latest nightly build on a Windows machine, and playback had improved. Might be worth a try now.

    In other news, I learned about iboum.com; a site that contains a lot of info on various hardware media players, and lets you do a search specifically for players that supports full Blu-ray Java menus - and which therefor should be able to play 8-bit Memoirs from harddisk and/or USB.

    Click here to see a list of (supposedly) supported hardware media players.

    If you own one of those players and decide to give it a go, please do share your results.

    Thanks!

    Gotta share this:
     
    Turns out, BD-J is also used by a Japanese adult animation company to produce adult animation games for Blu-ray Players and game consoles with Blu-ray drives. They call it "BD-GAME". :-)
     
    http://bd-game.product.co.jp/index2.html
    http://bd-game.product.co.jp/about.html
     
    I guess BD-J in general is used more than any of us knows. Not easy to know when no official label (other than "BD-J" of course) has been agreed upon.

    The thing is, is that you could have one disc to run any other applets you would like to run on usb. Problem is there's still no way to edit the main BD-J files yet so well just have to wait and see. I might take a look at the main wrapper jar again to see if I can import any system libraries into my own BD-J applet and test it out. Also one last thing, last time I checked the BD-J jar I noticed some developer class files and functions and some 'passcode' inside the code involving developer stuff, not sure exactly what it does but ill probably take another look.
     
    Also I highly suggest you check out the BD-J wiki page for more info, there's some other interesting stuff such as signed BD-J applets that can do some cool stuff like write to the hard drive, connect to the network, read other parts of the disc or even run other BD-J applications. But it may not be possible with a few of those features as they are disabled in the properties files but if I remember correctly there was nothing that disabled the running of other BD-J apps.

    EDIT:
    Just went back to check and BD-J has local storage access but I imagine its only for signed apps. Here's the part of the properties file that shows it does have access to local storage. If it did not have local storage access it would usually be commented out like the top line but it appears to have some sort of functionality.

    The iso works well on my ps3, ps4 and PowerDVD in Windows. In PS4 is accelerated like someone said. I think is a CPU setting that must be changed in the source code, but I don't know a lot of things about these stuffs. You have to open the virtual control panel "1" is select and "2" is start. If you don't press start some games don't start. But you'll see that "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Dragon Strike" is playable. With the "Red" button you can go to the roms list and with the "Green" button you can change the aspect ratio screen; I don't know what do the other two ha ha.
    I was able to run the "HelloWorld" sample inside the minimal SDK (Thanks SKFU) and this is what I found (I can't attach images):
    Screenshot

    May be you can't hack the PS4 but I think you can do a lot of interesting hombrews.

    Hello all!
    Can anyone share the "minimal PS4 BD-J SDK"? The official link is down and I can't find it.
    Thank you! And sorry for my poor English.

    The question is how limited are we talking about?
     
    I am no Hacker/Programmer myself, But have been following exploits since PS2, socom 2... Im pretty much a modder altering code, patches etc. Almost like connecting what makes sense.
     
    Back in those days we used ps1 eboots to run homebrew which was called RKswapper or Code magic, which was a Hexidecimal homebrew with different hooks other than gameshark, codebreaker and AR max to bypass socom 2 online checkups of course those got patched way later when combined assault came out, which then came cheaterslounge's exploit with it's new hook. And then blackb0x for ps3.
     
    I was trying to connect BD-J into this ps1 eboot method, of course it's old, But what makes a ps4 game disc run or boot up? other than signed key check ups? Is there a java eboot we can use here to create homebrews exceeding those limits? im not saying create Hexidecimal Homebrew. Im saying anything helpful to get the actual thing jailbroken or use homebrew through a eboot method.
     
    Edit: Again I'M just giving ideas in anything i can relate to disc based homebrew, I have no idea if this works. And it would have to be setup differently for the same result of course.

    Sure, you can make java homebrew without ps4 keys but your limited to it´s sandboxxed environment...unless there´s something that could be exploited.
     
    I´m still very curious about the network capabilties and the hdd access through BDlive that are available for official BluRay movies. it is interesting that movies can access the encrypted hdd, even if it in a very limited way.
    but I´m no hacker/programmer so.....
    If anyone wants to take a look at some BDlive files just let me know. I have a few different movies with BDlive.
     
    Hi, I believe the creator of the emulator is masri01. a former member at PS3News.
    I´m Manuel. I just posted those videos on youtube because of this thread.
    Sorry I didn´t respond to you over there.
    after I posted the videos I kind of forgot about them and I don´t use youtube to much anymore

    Question..... Does this mean we can make homebrew as long as its java based without keys.. Like ftpserver etc or does signed keys still the MAIN factor behind it all? Maybe a peek and poke java homebrew to fish these keys out perhaps? Lol IDK just giving ideas on what we can and can't do is all =)

    Here you go. This is the one you see in the video.

    You have to open up the ISO with WinISO or something similar to add your roms, then just save in ISO format and burn with your HD recording software.

    I´ve been searching around to see if I could find any info about sound in BD-J.
    The bad news is that dynamic, complex sound for an emulator probably isn´t going to happen. I guess the reason for this is that technically your in video mode so this sound was just more for special effects. more appropiate for card, dice games and stuff like that.
    you can only use 2 mb + another 5mb for sound.
    you need a sound.bdmv file in the AUXDATA folder
    here´s a good thread talking about it on the official Java forums
     
    https://www.java.net/node/675161
     
    the good news is that background music is possible
    I found this great BD-J 3D demo that has music(m2ts files in the STREAM folder) and the developer included the the source code

    unfortunately the video crashes at some point on the ps4   although that doesn´t happen on my Samsung BD player. it´s supposed to run fine on the ps3.
    It takes a while to load up but I was impressed with the 3D performance and there´s button input. I´m not sure if that´s what messes the video up on the ps4?
    If anyone has the ps4 BD-J sdk setup maybe see if it compiles to resolve the problem?

    Hey FreePlay,
    Glad to see your still around.
    Thx for the tip on starting the games.
    Best of luck on the investigating.
     
    From what I read BD-J performance depends on the cpu speed and RAM so in theory the PS4 is probably the most powerfull stand alone BD-J player.
    I´m hoping to see at least a SNES or Genesis/Megadrive emulator. If those still run fast, well who knows what emulators would work.
     
    Thumbs up to @SKFU for being one step ahead and already tweaking the SDK for the ps4. Hope some devs make good use of it.

    Good news and bad news. Good news first: burn it onto a BD-RE and it totally works. Kinda. Technically. You can run the programs just fine.
     
    Bad news:
     
    There's no audio. But I think we already knew that.
     
    Making the buttons work could be tough. For the NES emulator, B and A map to Square and X, and to press select or start, you have to hit the Options button, pick the Control Panel, and press 1 or 2 (or just press 1 or 2 if you have a remote). I don't know if it's possible to override the PS4 OS's interception of Triangle, Circle, Share, Options, L1, L2, R1, or R2; they all just do what they would do for any Blu-ray movie.
     
    I'll continue to play around...

    mr_lou reacted to zecoxao in let's make some nice bluray java homebrew :)   
    you can use bd-re
    edit: maybe we can test on the ps3 with ISO mounting first and then try it on the ps4?

    Back in the day for the ps3, I couldn´t even get the SDK compiled right. Lua is about the only thing I can code in, lol
    I´m going to have to leave the real coding for you Devs but I´m more than happy to test anything for anyone.

    Ok, I couldn´t find my camera so I had to use my vita for the videos
    This is the NES BD-J emulator


    I just used this ISO from this link from ps3news that GR provided
    I used WinISO to add roms, then just use any BD burning software

    Here´s the Gameboy BR-J emu
    http://youtu.be/_cqQ2hFiKpo

    Unfortunately, these emulators would have to be recompiled without using the START or Select buttons since the DS4 doesnt have them. I couldn´t get most roms I tried to start on both emulators. Also no sound yet with BD-J homebrew

    There´s more BD-J homebrew than I thought.
    Still I don´t think anyone made use of the network and HDD storage capabilites like with BD-Live. I´ve transfered various files from BD-Live over to the ps4s harddrive. Lol, it seems to let you use all the free space on the HDD. I´ve used BD-LIVE on another BD-Player with a usb to see what kind of files are transfered and there are some .jar files in there.
    So in theory maybe it would be possible to tranfer BD-J homebrew to the ps3s hdd and then use a BD (boot)disc to select the different homebrew on the HDD through BD-Live?

    Agreed, putting a BD-J app on a BD-R would be a waste but I think the ps4 supports BD-RE. not 100% sure though.
     
    Lol, and then some   I don´t think it´s possible but a BD-J homebrew launcher would be handy. If we could put multiple games and emulators on a disc, we just might get close to filling up those 25gb.
    I have a BD Burner, a BD-RE and the next 2 days off. What I don´t have is a clue on how to burn the disc.  I´ve just burned ISO format.
    I´ll look around tomorrow but if anyone can provide some links, it would help.
    I can´t say BD-J homebrew on the PS4 is anything to get too excited about. It should also run on any BD-Player, Plus if I remember right the NES emulator didn´t have sound?
    But if I can figure out how to burn the disc, I´ll make a short video just for the novelty of seeing some homebrew running on the ps4:)
    I´m really surprised we haven´t seen youtube videos of this by some super haxors claiming to have hacked the ps4. I guess the newbies doný know how to burn the disc either, lol
     
    Also does anyone know how to rip BD-J from BD movies. I´ve got at least one BD-j game I would like to rip from my legally bought BluRay movies
