This tutorial was written by Mizteeque on 19th February 2017  and assumes a working knowledge of psp
Written using psp9 but other versions should work just as well
Any similarity to other works is unintentional and purely coincidental

NOTE:  There will be a lot of "select all, float, defloat"
in this tutorial, so I will abbreviate it to SAFD
