https://github.com/ihaveamac/custom-install/releases/tag/2.0

This is the first full release of the project, not just of custom-install-finalize.

New GUI features (since module-new-gui):
  • Redesigned and rewritten
  • Some required files are automatically detected and selected if possible
  • Progress displayed in the Windows taskbar
  • Console is on a second window and hidden by default
Other changes to the main script:
  • custom-install-finalize.3dsx is copied to the SD card if it exists
  • Saves are no longer overwritten by default
  • Check for save3ds_fuse's existence before running
This build was tested on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10, version 2004.

No changes in custom-install-finalize since 1.4.

Support can be found on Discord: https://discord.gg/YVuFUrs (Please do not come here asking how to obtain games.)

Can I use the movable.sed I used to hack the 3DS originally or do I need to get it from the CTRNAND folder?

Thanks

This is simply incredible. This is up there with just a handful of other homebrew projects as true game changers. I just saved several hours installing a bunch of games. Feels like the sort of thing that should be pinned or added to the guides.

This program is excellent, thank you for your development work on it.

I have one request:
Can you make the games install alphabetically?

The Legend of Zelda - Four Swords Anniversary Edition is a DSiWare game that's not installed to the SD card.

Which Metal Gear Solid title are you referring? Snake Eater 3D, PS1 CIA forwarder of MSG1, or something like a GBC VC injection of MGS: Ghost Babel?

The weird thing is that with fbi I can install The Legend of Zelda Four Swords - Anniversary Edition (USA).cia without problems but Metal Gear Solid - Snake Eater 3D (USA).cia takes a long time... with fbi

It's not really that weird as this program is purely for installing 3ds games to the sd card and DSIWare must be installed to nand which FBI has been programed to do.

Your Metal Gear Solid cia is probably curupt and if you let FBI run long enough it will error out as well.

But with fbi I have been able to install metal gear without problems and I have played it, I will try to find another cia to test if mine was corrupt
