    Hi all, I am a fan of comics, manga etc. and recently discovered Comic Book DS, which is an amazing application, but it lacks support for custom background music playback. I couldn't find any source code and I thought before emailing the author of CBDS better asking here whether or not someone has the source code of the latest version (3.0) and/or knows a similar application that can display cbds comics AND supports music playback.

    Thanks.

    multitask app? not gonna happen.

    best i can think of that attempted this is Moonshell, and even then it only works with text files, as music playback pretty much eats the entire RAM.

    Well if RAM is an issue you can always add support for an RAM expansion pack if you have the source code. If you only have a DSi and a way to launch DSi enhanced homebrew, a DSi version is possible.

    I would think something like what you described would be a DSTWO-only application that requires an EZ-Flash 3in1.

    DSTWO is not neccessary. I mean using the extra RAM from an EZ Flash Expansion pack like other homebrews already do for years.

    Just want to give a short update. I emailed the author a week ago or so but still no reply. I guess Comic Book DS music support will never happen [​IMG]

    I think the author abandoned Comic Book DS along time ago.

    I stand corrected. But from this app, I assume the bulk of the RAM goes to the MP3 playback.

    Even so, displaying a single jpg file at a time requires a lot of RAM, which makes it impossible for a mp3 file to be played in the background, right? [​IMG]
