Cornish Yarg now in QA: In-game XMB music, Global Lighting tool

Mar 20th 2009 - 12:50 AM

Juicy information about the upcoming update patch for LittleBigPlanet known as “Cornish Yarg” has been revealed In the latest Media Molecule podcast.

Some new features, not previously known have been revealed:

The patch is currently in QA and apparently awaiting feedback from Sony - the final stages of release. Fingers crossed for no major bugs and we should have this very soon.


The global lighting controller first appeared in the MGS4 pack and allows for adjustable lighting effects to be added to different parts of a level, allowing for the creation of truly atmospheric stages.

Epic 8-hour long level creation sessions can now be accompanied by your own music.

The Cornish Yarg patch was originally slated for an end of January release, but it’s only now that we have this glimpse of a true release date. It’s also thought that online create mode will be coming with Cornish Yarg, though this is unconfirmed.

It’s also worth mentioning that the podcast clarifies that the Frying pan slap has been available in game for a while now, and makes a Shooting-stars style comedy CLANG! sound when you slap other players with it.

Head over to Media Molecule to listen to the latest and greatest podcast, order find it in the iTunes podcast library.

Thanks for Pixelledfox for the heads up. We were still syncing our iPods for some bedtime listening wink

[UPDATE]

Sam Protagonist has said on the LittleBigWorkshop forums that Cornish Yarg will not contain the much anticipated online create. A previously leaked updates schedule suggested that online create would be in Cornish Yarg, but Sam says that this is not the case:

Online creating is still coming but it is not part of the Cornish Yarg update. It is planned to be released as part of an update that also tackles some of the latency issues players have encountered to date.
There’ll be plenty more news on the subject when it’s a little closer to being ready to go.

This would suggest that online create would be coming in the “TCP/IP” networking patch to be known as Leerdammer.
You can read his message on the forums.

I really hope there is more than just the day/night and ingame music

WHICH IS AWSOME :D

I’m hoping image import also.

Anchor

why ingame music only in create mode?> that is so stupid!!! makes me so mad!

Anchor

@ colton

Maybe it’s because of copyright reasons. Didja think about that?

Anchor

cool I hopes this happens i love in-game music… i want hardrive image import… but it wont ever happen since copyright laws exist… go L.B.P!!

Anchor

Something else mentioned in the MM Podcast, that the next big LBP patch is called “Ricotta”.
The same name you (LBPtoid) declared patch 1.08 is.
Better take back your declaration… haha…

Also, I suggest rewording your “In-game XMB music soundtracks available in create mode” as what they really meant was just being able to listen to your own music off of your XMB while in create mode, or your pod.
I suggest rewording this because before listening to the MM Podcast, I thought you were talking about in game custom music from your hardrive.

Anchor

Yay!  They used my Day/Night switch picture again :D
I can’t wait for this update!
Thanks LittleBIGPlanetoid for keeping us up to date!

Anchor

You can also see the nighy/day globe taking effect in the first level which is the Intoductio.

Anchor

It says that the music from XMB player thing isn’t just in create mode - 27ish mins in, he says “when you’re in create mode, or in your pod, waiting for people to join” implying that it can be played in more modes than just create.

Anchor

that sucks its stupid that u cant listen to music everywhere

Anchor

Finally! just missing harddrive image import now.

Anchor

awesome comon update when…?

Anchor

Well they said right when sony O.K’s it and if it doesn’t have any major bugs, then they will release it.  Fingers crossed for this week!!

P.S Hopefully this update has online create.. My friends and I have been waiting, and wanting this ever since we have all had the game.  KZ2 mini pack FTW!!

Anchor

where do the names for these patches come from? Is there any sort of reason for it or do they just come up with Edam and Cornish Yarg because they’re cool?

Anchor

That are Cheese sorts
Theres no reason why they are cheese sorts xD

Anchor

i think the only reason that you cant put music in levels is because people will upload songs that are explicit

Anchor

No, the reason we can’t upload songs into a level is because it has to do with copyright law. MM is making money off a game that allows you to create levels. As soon as someone puts copyrighted music into a level, MM are officially making money off a level that now includes a certain artist’s songs. This is crossing a very dangerous line so MM will not risk a lawsuit and neither will Sony. Trust me, uploading an explicit song is the least of MM’s troubles if such a feature were introduced…

Anchor

Can’t wait for this one! All that is left is online multiplayer creating, exporting images from the XMB, some kind of video capturing / YouTube uploading feature, and.. thats about it to be honest! Sweet. smile

Anchor

I’m guessing bandwidth is just as much a concern as copyright. LBP levels aren’t actually that big with regards to file size because all they need to contain is instructions about what parts of the game’s internal files to use (materials, where objects should be, etc). It’s the same reason Flash games are often lightweight: they tell the computer what to do, rather than download it all pre-done like a video.

If you introduce allowing music to be embedded into the levels, suddenly you’re making the levels’ file sizes 20+ times bigger. This’d mean getting into levels would be slower (particularly for those with lesser connections), the bandwidth costs for Sony would become astronomical to the point where it’d be financially non-viable, and of course they’d have to moderate it too.

In short: never going to happen.

Anchor

Cool but when are we getting the other features like infinite checkpoint and stuff? raspberry

A patch they should really be considering is to allow more stuff to be put into a level without overheating

Anchor

what would get around the copyright would be if they introduced software to enable you to create your own tunes within the game

Anchor

Yarg update coming on Wednesday:

Anchor

@vinni08 It would be cool to be able to have a level creator without restriction to size, but I think the reason they have that in there is to prevent us from making levels that lag too much.  You may have noticed that some of the larger levels have a tendency to lag as it is.  As technology advances we certainly will see an increase in capacity for level creation in games like this.  We’ll just have to wait until LBP2. smile

Anchor

If they made a music editor, it would be about five minutes before someone made a version of a copyrighted song. This would open up Mm, Sony, and the creator to lawsuits. And even if Sony weren’t the distribution channel, they’ve still got IP rights to lots of music. They don’t want to imperil their own sales or legal claims.

I’m not pleased with the state of the law, but that’s the situation. Custom music will never happen.

Anchor

Sam has confirmed that Online create mode will NOT be in the Cornish Yarg update.

Anchor

Online create WONT be in it? Whaaaaat????

Anchor

For christs sakes instead of adding all of this stuff why cant they concentrate on the thing that was supposed to be in at launch?

Anchor

man i need this 4 my new lvl series and it needs to be finished soon god let this come out tomorow PLZ PLZ PLZ

Anchor

where did Sam say no online create in yarg? Also, i have a question that i know that nobody can answer. When will people stop whining about what’s not in a game and start concentrating on what’s in the game?! Seriously! stop complaining! LBP is a great game and they didn’t put this stuff in so they could get it to us sooner! They are also listening to us and not just leaving the game alone after a few days to go and roll around in thier piles of money (i’m looking at you nintendo!)! so kids, the moral of this lesson is:

Stop complaing and be a man! $#!+ happens, and most of the time for good! get it! Online create will come, but be gratefull!  besides, unless it’s someone that agrees with you on a common structure for the level, they could en up deleting what you want and replacing it with what they want! sorry for the rant, i had to get it out of my systems.

Anchor

Awesome, can’t wait!!!

Anchor

sam mentioned that it would not be in yarg on the workshop forums

@ Ausohoj

Look I absolutely love the game. I’ve made loads of levels (check them out under PSN name redswipe) and am 100% on trophies. I think its one of the best games ever made.

The one thing thats really frustrating me is the lack of online create and thats because my friends and I have wanted to work on levels together since the beta and are still waiting 5 months later.

Its so frustrating when a friend is trying to do something in a level and there is no easy way to help them :(

Anchor

Online Create is definitely coming Redswipe, just got a little longer to wait…

Anchor

@ Ausohoj

You did not just call out Nintendo! They have a little more to deal with then just one game, you know. I love LBP too, people are just voicing their wants and desires for the game. Maybe we have been a little spoiled with all the DLC but at the same time, people would like the updates that improve gameplay over “Minipacks.”

Anchor

awesome

Anchor

@ caviglia

I was just kidding. once nintendo finishes a game, they satrt trying to make the next one btter i think. besides, they have the uncany ability to make me happy in just two minutes. besides, before littlebigplanet, i was with nintendo all the way. i wouldn’t dare insult them! besides, new legend of zelda on the DS!!

Anchor

i have one question where is the katamari custome is gonna be come out or they remove forever fromthe game i see this ktamari head custome in one old image of the game… toro mask appear too http://www.meristation.com/v3/pop_up_imgs.php?id=cw4651f28ac6881&idj=cw45efa291376a6&pos=66&pic=PS3

Anchor

@ cya8a

Nice find! I’ve never seen that before! I know there was an old art piece that had a Katamari design on it (a long with a Mario and Nude Sackboy to name a few). I assume that MM just followed up on that for fun, with no intention on ever releasing it. That is also a super old screen, so I assume we would have heard about it by now if it was going to come out.

Also, the Toro mask is already available on the PSN store. wink

Anchor

@ Ausohoj

No! You will perish!!! J/K Glad to see another Ninty fan on here..I was drawn to LBP because it’s very Nintendo-like..I am glad they add anything to the game making it last even longer :D

Sadly Nintendo can’t do something like this due to lack of HDD/ paranoia of online predators…

Anchor

@ Caviglia

I don’t know if you saw, but Nintendo just announced a storage solution today at GDC ... and it’s available now! Go download it! Not to mention a new DS Zelda and some other cool stuff, check it out!
