    Hi!

    This is a new program to assist in the creation of forwarder channels.

    Use of SFCC:


    -Folder name. point to [sd][usb]:/apps/[folder name]/boot.dol
    -Program name. Showed in the Icon, Banner and tooltip
    -Channel Id.

    Main Window
    [IMG]

    Generated icon
    [IMG]

    Generated banner
    [IMG]

    Downloads:

    Exe

    Source code (Exe)
    Source code (Forwarder)

    The program creates the .dol file, icon, banner and wad.

    Thanks. I'll try it out when I can. I hope it doesn't need DevKit Pro like an another app of the type I use.

    Does it create forwarders based on usbloadergx's source or does it create simple forwarders that only look for the .dol on the sd?

    The dol is based in the usbloadergx forwarder source code, you can choose SD or USB with one combo

    Just tested it out and it works great. I like the fact that it gives you the forwarding dol and the wad instead of just one or the other. It's actually easier to use this to get the dol (which is based on usbloadergx's source) than it is to use other forwarder creators... probably because you don't need to install Devkit Pro.
    Thank you!

    If you mean the ForwardMii plugin, you need to have DevkitPPC and LiboGC installed for complex forwarders.

    But if this program doesn't need that, its definitely welcome [IMG]

    if possible, you should add the option to replace the loading screen when usb loading, or add the option to not have one at all.

    also, when selecting usb, it only checks the usb. is there anyway to get it to check usb, then sd if the boot.dol isn't on the usb?

    You can use DJD forwarder, not have loading screen.
    At this point, I'm not sure in the benefits of maintain two different forwarders. I don't know the difference between DJD and USBGX forwarders, C not is my best skill. Maybe in the next release I use only the USBGX forwarder with the possibility of disable the loading screen and booting order.

    the GX forwarder source isnt compatible of launching all apps without modifying the entry point of the forwarder via the source, well thats how ive picked it up

    djdynamite123 forwarders are capable of launching most apps GX cant but of cause without splashes and without editing the entry point, which in some ways is handy for the channel maker to do a dol change rather than finding the correct enry points for seperate apps

    Thanks pepxl, it can help me to understand how works one forwarder instead of making only little changes for a existing one.
    You know any programming guide that help me?
    The problems with the entry point are related with the error launching sdl mame with one forwarder?

    sorry not really a programmer as such, im still getting to grips with devkit myself but giantpune is probably the best person to ask about entry points and what not

    here a quick breakdown of what an entry point is and what needs to be done
