If you are a developer that want to use CCAPI. You have a several option:

  • You can use the demo codes provided in the CCAPI Package for Developers (download link is below). You may find some example for a few languages such as C/C++/C#.
  • You can also use imcsx's implementation for C#, the specificity is that it is also compatible with TMAPI.
  • Finally if your programming language is not supported, or if you prefer to make your own implementation, it is possible to directly import the functions from CCAPI.dll yourself. The main functions to achieve that are LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress from the WINAPI, you can find them in a lot of languages C/C++/.net/Java, etc. 


The CCAPI (Windows) documentation is available here: Win documentation

The CCAPI (Others) documentation is available here: (Not yet)

If you would be able to update this to support DECR skus (Reference Tools) That would be greatly appreciated as TMAPI is finiky with these systems in that it only wants to connect in standby via dev lan.

Hello, I have come to understand that your software is incompatible with DECR systems. I have tried multiple methods including swapping kernel to a dex one, and using DECR Rebug 4.81 with Dex VSH to no avail.

Guys , if you have super slim you cant do that. First you need to jailbreak your ps3 *you need e4 flasher* you need to downgrade your playstation to version 3.55 for 4.81 and then you need to go to game center and it will be a package installer. then you will be able to do that.

I can't figure out how to install this onto my PS3. I can't find "Install Package" and I have tried looking through every sub-menu I can think of. What am I missing???
