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)

Use Rebug 4.80.1 D-REX and CCAPI 2.70 rev5.
It works for me and I have no issues now! :D
Really wish all these issues are fixed in the next revision of CCAPI!

Sorry. Wrong steps (they don't work). This is what I do to put all working again: uninstall CCAPI; run any game; install CCAPI. After this, it's all working, and the last time I tried, I run battlefielf correctly, returned to XMB and when I restarted the same game only to be sure it was really working, the PS3 crashed to the firmware corruption error).

I installed the latest version and revision. Sometimes I load GTA (the game I wanted to use with this), it loads story mode correctly, but when I start the PSN session, the PS3 freezes and when I restart it and start any game, before the game logo, the ps3 reboots and tells me the file system might be corrupted. It always reboots normally (except having to repair the system) and then I have to uninstall CCAPI, reboot the PS3 and reinstall CCAPI again. Can you try to solve this?

On 4.81.2 DEX, the following issues have been noticed. On CCAPI:

2.70 rev6, whenever I try to launch Black Ops II, I get trophy errors caused by CCAPI.
2.80 rev1, the PS3 always crashes when I try to mount a game using webMAN.
2.80 rev2, when I launch Black Ops II, the firmware completely crashes , black screen tells me to press the PS Button to restart and Select+Start to install firmware.
2.80 rev3, same error as 2.80 rev2.

Could you please update this so there isn't any issues at all?
Thank you.

Could you please update CCAPI to support Rebug D-REX 4.82 (4.82 DEX)?
Don't mean to rush you if you're busy, I just really want to play Zombieland and use my mod menu while using my Jericho Engine simultaneously.

Thank you! :D
