This is the official discussion thread for #ProjectLighthouse, the LBP Union's effort to develop open-source private servers for LittleBigPlanet.
To learn more about these custom LittleBigPlanet servers, check out our blog post about the most recent developments.
This thread is for questions and discussion about Lighthouse. Have you ever wondered if a favorite feature of yours will be included? What do you plan on doing on a private server? Do you want to host your own server, or will you only use trusted servers hosted by groups like LBP Union?
Project Lighthouse FAQ
Arcadius (Former USC Starblazer) Turecross (Former USC Star Commander) Jvyden (Former Lighthouse R&D Lead)
Q: Is Lighthouse public yet? A: We're currently beta testing the servers to make sure that they're ready and secure for launch. you can go enlist in the settings channel on our Discord server for a chance to join this beta test. Q: Why can't we use DNS? A: All LBP games (including PSP and Vita) by default connect to Media Molecule/Sumo Digital's servers over HTTPS, the location and connection method of which is stored in the game's EBOOT. The reason DNS doesn't work is because the game can't verify the custom server specified in DNS is actually Media Molecule/Sumo Digital's server because we do not have their private certificate. It's possible that obtaining or decrypting this private certificate could very well be illegal as well. That's why patching the EBOOT file is necessary. You will need to jailbreak your PS3 because there is no way to change it other than jailbreaking your PS3 and modifying that file. Q: Will Lighthouse support LittleBigPlanet Karting? A: No. since the games use completely different server structures, we aren't able to use Lighthouse with LBPK. Q: Are my old community levels and pictures going to be on lighthouse? A: You'll have to reupload them, as we cannot just grab levels off sony's server and use them in our server Q: Will you be able to connect to Lighthouse on PS4? A: It is currently not possible to connect to PSN on a jailbroken PS4. This may be possible in the far future.
how do i setup my own private instance?
hi there will you be able to trasfer over data from lbp 1 2 3 to the ps4 version of lbp 3 ?
Would it be possible to play and connect to the server using a PS3 emulator or will this only work on a jailbroken PS3?
Hi I'm not going to hate or beg but is there any possible way on earth to put the Disney and Nickelodeon DLCs back in the store?
Se eu modificasse o sistema da minha consola para o teste beta do servidor no LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, iria ser preciso procedimentos adicionais quando o servidor for lançado publicamente?/ If I modified my console's system for the server's beta testing on LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, would there be any additional procedures required when the server is publicly released?
I forgot if there is going to be a lbp.me for the lighthouse servers
could you possibly add a 3rd thing to yay's and boo's? im asking because im intrested in it
Do you have to dump lbp using say multiman to patch the eboot
