    CoverFlow is (And will always be) Free. The link is here incase you feel compelled to thank developers for their work. (In the event someone actually donates (We aren't expecting it [​IMG] ) I was thinking about splitting the donations across developers; but instead, will be donating everything to my favorite charity: http://www.ahbz.org/ (Have been there a few times and have to say; its an amazing thing they are doing for those kids.)

    Man this looks so great, I wish I could do something to help.

    This really looks like a final product rather than something new you started working on!

    Also, maybe if you space the games apart a little more it'll look better.
    And use the Wii pointy finger to scroll through games.

    Thanks for working on this!

    I know baby steps, give the boxes a more 3d look like real boxes.
    But seriously very very nice will be looking for this soon! Showed my wife and she is in love.

    not to be an ass, but could everyone stop gushing about how good it looks, that is not going to solve the launching issue and makes it hard for anyone trying to help to get a message in, where it can be found.

    Nice work so far. I've snagged the code and will have a look for bugs later today - unless someone with more free time gets to it first.

    Had the same problem with my first loader.

    The bad choice is starting main in c++ while the loader is C.
    To get rid of this problem (and many future problems to come if using c++) make sure main is obeying c standard and you're good to go.

    Woot..Beardface is on the Dark Side [​IMG] [​IMG]? Anyways, like you know for shure, Hibern also was/is working on this...maybe he should join on GoogleCode, so you can work together (as soon as he got his adpater)...because I think he got some things that I haven't seen in your Vid..(namely reflection, and 3D (?)) and you have some that he needs (launching)...Anyways keep it up, looks good [​IMG]. And it's Open-Source [​IMG]!!!

    And that this post isn't so useless...I would love to help, but sadly, I'm no Coder [​IMG]...BUT:
    I'm still offering my help with pleasure for Coverflow-Style-Graphics, like I've tried to do here:
    [​IMG]
    Contact me if I could help you [​IMG].

    @Blue-K, I think this one does have reflection, the video is just a bit dark, so you can't really see it all the time, but he does have reflection. I think this loader uses same rendering/libraries as the one from Hibern, this one is just developed further...

    Will download the source and try to find some bugs...

    EDIT: Can anyone tell how to compile/download source from google code?

    I imagine this GUI with all the options from the ultimate/Dimok Loader
    and the 3D Covers from NeoRame.

    it might be the next source code everyone is gonna use as the backbone.
    once optimized and improved it can take the usbloader to a next level:3D.
