    I've seen a couple of people mention a hack to change the number of channels shown on the system menu. Is there a Priiloader hack to do this, or can Startpatch do this? Is there an XML in the wad that I can edit? I'm making a bunch of forwarders under SNEEK. I know you can view additional titles via USB Loader GX, etc. but I'm hoping to avoid that. I'd also like to have a "reduced" system menu, maybe only 1 page, so you could hide a bunch of titles, just for fun.

    don't know about hiding channels, but I know you can move the ones you dont want to the last page by holding a+b at the same time and dragging... or do you have so many that even all the pages there don't fit? O.O

    Just for the hell of it, doing different things with SNEEK. I want to try making a shitload of forwarders, for starters. Doing an Amiga Workbench "theme" pack too.

    The only talk there has been is people asking if its possible, and being told yes, but its difficult and no one could be bothered doing it.

    that's the basic idea. it's very possible for some. it's not worth it timewise considering how much channels cost and how much I buy though.

    People like you are ruining the gaming industry and pushing prices up for decent people who actually buy games. Thanks.

    actually I think the people who are ruining the industry are the people who will buy a game no matter what the game company decides to charge, so that companies can just inflate prices as much as they want [​IMG]

    its easy to take away pages from the system menu. just whip out wiird & your favorite rebooter and nop the button presses that go to the previous and next pages. then you are always stuck on page 1 and have 36 hidden channels.

    And once the patch is found, it could be made a priiloader hack AFAIK [​IMG]

    EDIT: BTW, I mean a patch to kill the forward/backward buttons.
