    Hi there. I have been very interested by the development of bootOpera, and its ability to open Opera to any site. I have been meaning to do this for a while, but have just got round to it. What I have done is started packaging my favourite flash games into HBC compatible packages using bootOpera. So far I've only done two, but they have customized icon.png and meta.xml, and I intend to do more soon, which I will add to this topic. I thought it would be nice to have somewhere these can be downloaded. I have not got round to testing them on the Wii yet, but here they is anyway:

    Unreal Flash - http://www.mediafire.com/?ezjr1knynzj
    Unreal Flash 2007 - http://www.mediafire.com/?2mm3yzyyzyw
    Slash 'n' Clash - http://www.mediafire.com/?ezmon0tttim

    Installation instructions:

    Download the file.
    Extract the zip.
    Copy the apps folder inside to the root of your SD card, selecting yes if asked if you want to continue.
    Then just run HBC, and the game should show up.

    You may wish to use Catergorii or Homebrew Sorter to seperate your flash games from your other games and apps.

    Please feel free to submit your own packages, I can add them to this post to make them easier to find.

    Great stuff SifJar.

    People can also make an html page themselves or php and can use JS too.

    So anyone can make a page online or on home pc (get a webserver like apache)
    If you make your own page you get infinite amount of options. Here are a few I tried a while back...HERE

    Sif was the only one interested back then [​IMG]

    Anyway, if anyone can be bothered making something themselves there are so many good ideas. For one you wont be limited by how many favourites you have, you can have a clock on screen, have a keyboard that doesn't hide the screen, link directly to flash games, have tabs etc etc

    If you get the source you can hardcode in urls so you dont need an SD card, of you can edit it to launch different things depending on the button help or combination of buttons held. If anyone like the idea of a flash arcade all you need is a tiny amount of php knowledge, you can make a frame page with a thin bar that launches an index, the index can just be a php script that lists the files in a dir on your pc, or online and loads the flash in the window (keeping your taskbar type thing, or it can be dynamic and hide)

    I'd do some guides, well I was gonna but no one seemed interested. If you are SifJar in doing something let me know I'll lend you a hand.

    and thanks for taking time m8 to make the packages you did [​IMG]

    Oh and something to note....if your playing flash games for the Wii there are 2 types. Ones you can play with Wiimote and others you need a keyboard.

    Super Mario Crossover would be great on the wii and it's unlikely to be ported/remade [​IMG] so...
    Would it be possible to put a script on your own page along with the .swf that swaps keyboard inputs to wiimote button presses?

    I know very little about scripting so apologies if I am being stupid!

    is there any way to load SWF from SD card?

    so you can play flash game without internet connection.
