brewin, check your xorg.conf, see if it has 1680*1050 set as supported video mode. I'm guessing it hasn't...

if it hasn't, just add it :davex:

Since it uses the framebuffer, the mode has to be passed to the kernel at boot or set using a utility called ps3videomode.

The only (documented) modes are listed below.
# ps3videomode -h
Usage:
  ps3videomode [options]

Options:
  --help,  -h		  print this message
  --video, -v <ID>	 set video mode ID
  --full,  -f		  use full screen mode
  --dither,-d		  use dither ON mode

Video mode ID:
  0:auto mode
  YUV 60Hz  1:480i  2:480p  3:720p  4:1080i  5:1080p
  YUV 50Hz  6:576i  7:576p  8:720p  9:1080i 10:1080p
  RGB 60Hz 33:480i 34:480p 35:720p 36:1080i 37:1080p
  RGB 50Hz 38:576i 39:576p 40:720p 41:1080i 42:1080p
  VESA	 11:WXGA 12:SXGA 13:WUXGA

  full screen mode: <video mode ID> + 128
  dither ON mode  : <video mode ID> + 2048

Example:
  ps3videomode -v 3 -f	720p 60Hz with full screen mode.
  ps3videomode -v 131	 Same as above.

If no arguments are given, ps3videomode displays the current video mode.

Well, I just got off the phone with Sony. I am having problems when I play games with artifacts showing up. Took forever to convince them that it was their system that was crap but I finally got my point across. They are sending me a box within 2 days to ship it back to them. Then it takes 3-5 businesses days for me to get my new one!! All in all sounds like a pretty quick turn around. So, I guess now I got some more waiting to do. GRRRR

Havok 4.5 Unleashed

Quote

San Francisco, Calif., Jan. 23, 2007 – Havok announces today the official release of Havok 4.5, the latest update to its modular suite of artist tools and run-time technology. Fully optimized for Sony PLAYSTATION®3, as well as Microsoft Xbox360 and Nintendo Wii, Havok 4.5 dramatically accelerates the development of cross-platform, cutting edge electronic games, meeting the needs of the world’s top developers and producers. Havok 4.5 allows game developers to scale game content to thousands of dynamically-driven game objects and characters, harnessing the full power and speed of next generation architectures.

Game developers using Havok Physics and Havok Animation products to develop for PS3 will be able to harness the full power of all the SPUs, while maintaining the complete flexibility of the Havok SDK. Havok architecture now scales strongly across all SPUs and runs between 5 and 10 times faster than Havok 4.0 for a typical game scene on the PS3.
