    Wouldnt it be possible to have cintros like on the psp now....using preloader and autobooting a .dol????

    Obviously the .dol needs to ...lets say...

    1,Play an avi (or compatible format) from your SD card
    2,exit to system menu...

    Thus creating a cintro....

    Sounds possible to me..

    Any thoughts??

    why? It would just increase boot time. It wll be fun the first couple of times then get annoying

    Maybe...

    It doesnt have to be long... just think of it as an animated health screen...(with the original health screen disabled)

    First step is no problem... there is a problem with the second step... no nice way to load system menu since preloader fucks up the system menu dol...

    here is an example
    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8...19503&hl=en

    If crediar implements something like first booting the autoboot dol and then the patched system menu itself then the possibilities are endless..

    I myself want to create a specific dol that displays random kanjis for each start of my wii... kanjis will be taken from a database and will be configurable...
    Something like this : http://www.tepetaklak.com/kanjidesktop/

    ported to the wii...

    By the way the dol in the video is above 3mb containing 3mb mp3... still it loads less than a second... so boot times will not much suffer...
