PS3Tutorials translation

Image
Well seems that Korben and his friends almost finished to translate the wiki in French. I started to translate it in italian, but it will be a looong work :( i don't have so much time.
anyway if you want to contribute, please tell me (also here) and i can explain you what you need to do. you can translate it into ANY language you want.

if you have suggestion, please write them down in this page.
i want to thanks all the guys that worked on this wiki.

Then i realized that the values were not in Big Endian, but in Little Endian, so i looked for the value 0x25e8ff2f and i found it on the offset 0x68. now this is the money offset. then i looked for a more complex thing: where, the quantity of an item that i have on my spac…
