    Announcing: Project Scarlet Open Beta
    Homebrew Manager
    [​IMG]

    Through a collaboration between FileTrip, Urza, and developer Mazor, we are proud to bring you Project Scarlet: the first real homebrew manager for the Nintendo DS. Project Scarlet is a software front-end for Windows (OSX and Linux in development) which connects to the large file collection available at FileTrip, allowing you to download homebrew titles directly to your cart. With such functionality as automatic firmware updates, and a robust scripting language to extend the UI and assist in installation, Project Scarlet brings a new light to the homebrew experience!

    This is a beta release, and thus bugs are expected. Please report any you come across via this thread or the FileTrip subforum.

    The program crashes when I click on some specific homebrews on the list (ie : Arcade Slots, Mini-Jeux DS, MultiNDS Loader, ...)

    I'm on Windows Vista.

    This looks great but question time:

    Is this a online library of homebrew from filetrip listing ones you've download and one's you haven't, or is it a manager where it lists your homebrew from a folder and lets you download updates etc plus other homebrew you don't have (like a game manager but not for games [​IMG]).

    Though the two descriptions sound the same they aren't.
    Thanks

    Inside you, all around you
    could this be the start of homebrew channel? i know stormwave wanted to get it just on the ds flashcarts themselves, anyways is there like a .nds to sync from this server to the ds to transfer files wirelessly? or is it just drag and drop?

    Something that I should have thought of asking during the tempcast, but how does Scarlet detect the homebrew on the flashcart? I know Scarlet can detect what flashcart I'm using (it displayed correctly), but none of my homebrew, although in the "Homebrew" folder, showed up in Scarlet. I'm guessing that it will probably have something to do with the script for each homebrew...but I'm just poking in the dark (it would be nice to have it check by CRC).
    Also, will we have the ability to rename the file when we install the homebrew into the mSD, because a large majority of the time, I rename all of the homebrew to some nicer names (I don't like internal names because some homebrew don't change them from the default).

    On the bug report from Bunie, I think that is just a random crash. I can click on "Balik Bayan DevWifi" just fine. Either Scarlet or Vista seems to fail at something after I close Scarlet because the all mighty "[insert program here] has stopped working" popup always appears after closing.
