    [​IMG] Colors! v1.1
    Update
    [​IMG]

    Colors! has been listed on many "top-10 must have DS homebrew" lists. The application has accumulated more than 500,000 downloads as of August 2010. After being Ported to the iPhone and iPod Touch, the application gained a huge following. Colors was last updated for the NDS on Wed Sep 19, 2007 and released as version 1.06h. It goes without saying that this is a much anticipated release. For more information be sure to read the change log and check the homepage link below.

    I'd like to see you do better.

    It never fails that someone always has to take the discussion WAY off topic. How does the image have anything to do with what is one of the most anticipated updates to perhaps the best known NDS Homebrew?

    Because it's a product of the homebrew itself and it's not exactly a nice picture to look at.
    Personally I was prefer Phidias.

    Not an artist of any sort myself, but the GUI is highly improved, and my gf will love this!

    Wow, touchy guy.
    And as a poster above said, art is about opinion.
    I personally think that the art shown is horrible.

    I can't be bothered to register & post on the official Colors site - but I hope that the developers do pop in & see this

    Anyway - Works on a DSTwo + DSi but with some problems

    IF run as normal Homebrew through the DS_Games menu OR as a plugin (for the first time) get
    However run it a second time as either - No error messages appear

    If used on a DSLite - I only get the 'Warning 201:'

    Boy, what a surprise this was! After such a stretch of inactivity from the DS version of Colors!, I began to think that there'd be no more updates, and that I'd be stuck with shoddy pressure sensitivity forever. [​IMG]

    Anyway, I'll be sure to check this out!

    Got that too, decided to ignore it. Works fine. Says something about longer loading times but I didn't notice anything. We'll see.

    Had tons of fun with this homebrew a while ago, absolutely loved it and it worked so intuitively! Glad to see it's still alive.

    Seems like 'shoddy pressure sesitivity' is if you only use it on DSLite/Phats - the DSi/CXL don't seem to allow that to work for some reason

    EDIT: Apparently the 'pressure sensitivity' is a HACK of the DS code - but since the DSi/XL has higher 'blocking capabilitys' no HACK has been found to allow for 'pressure'

    Hmm...on a DSLite (loading Colors! through iMenu) I got no such error message. When deleting the colors.xml and calibration dat and reloading it through DS_Game, I got it. Must be something odd to do with the loader. I wouldn't worry about it since they both use the same DLDI.

    Oh wow. I may have found reason to re-charge my DS! (it's been a while since i've used it... mainly due to free time availability... which is none [​IMG])

    I loved the older versions of Colors! and i can't wait to try this new one!
