    Don't need to compile it.
    Just copy images folder to
    sd://wiiu/apps/homebrew_launcher/resources/

    There was no resources folder, so I made one, and it didn't show up! Please help.

    Didn't work, again. Can I also put the sound files in there?

    I'm not sure. I just got the info from the officail thread. Unless I'm misreading it but I don't think so.

    @Boe are you by any chance booting the channel/rpx version? I think it doesn't work with the channel version.

    That is likely your problem. Boot the .elf.

    Yup, the .elf works! But how do I get it on my channel?

    I think there is a version of the channel which reads the resources from the /content/ folder of the installed title.
    I don't remember if it has been officially implemented or if it was a fork of the main branch.

    you could try to put your file in the content folder using ftpiiu everywhere, or wup server. at worst, it will not load them.

    sorry, I don't remember the exact path on NAND.
    Someone probably gave that path in HBL thread when the HBL channel was first released.
    I could search, but I never installed anything to my console, so I can't just look.
    maybe the path can be found in the sources on github.

    But like I said, I don't know if it's already loading resources from the /content folder, or if it was a project to make it load from here on next release.
