    Jeremysr has totally rewritten his bible viewer because of seemingly un-fixable bugs.

    Or a text reader and the various religious texts in .txt format.

    Hooray! I can now take my favorite hate filled, evil book of oppressive propaganda with me where ever I go.

    What a treat...

    I'm glad to see a program like this come out. Now we can have a bunch of religion bashers come out of the woodwork with their most hilarious, well thought out anti-religion jokes and slams!
    Oh, oops, its started.

    On a more straightforward note, i'm very interested to check this out. With all the other homebrew proggies that have been popping out, i'm interested to see how in depth of a program this'll be.

    Anyone happen to know if there's a search function in there?

    Am I the only one who is anti-religion AND glad we have this?

    While I don't agree with organised religion, they all have valuable lessons and having a reference like this is kinda cool, just to know more stuff if nothing else.

    Ditto, I'm so not religious it's not even funny, but the fact still remains that it looks like a decent little app and it might come in handy for people who are religious.

    Depending on how the thing splits up the different books and such if they're not hardcoded I'd imagine it might be possible to get it to read other texts if they were formatted correctly.

    Reading this whole thread I'm sure it could be adapted ... looks like the base files are .txt documents mentioned above ... perhaps asking Jeremysr politely on the source thread link above he maby able to help you to adapt it to your desired text ...or any other document for that matter in .txt format to use his reader [​IMG]

    Infact If adapted for other .txt files/ebooks this could be a pretty cool ebook/txt reader with the ability of bookmarking and lookup it could be pretty useful [​IMG]

    on the gbadev thread hes also nice enough to of released the souce so you can all have a play around with it [​IMG]

    actually i wanted to have the arabic text for the Quran since english translation is easy with DSreader and txt file but to convert each image file to be able to be used by any image viewer in the DS is pretty tedious so possibly a specific program or app is needed to convert all the image files at once and to be displayed systematically in a single program on the DS
    anywayz i don't need it anyway, DS is very deviating since u feel more like playing games on it then anything else
    P.S - Debates about religion are getting intermittent so better to avoid it

    Well, I'm religious, but I'd just read the Bible, it's there if i need it. Perhaps I'll download it just to see what it's like. Certainly interested by the fact someone would do this too!

    If you're looking for Judaism, just read the old testament and ignore the new testament.

    I would be more interested in this if it included the NLT. Still, it is good to know that there are those in the community bold enough to come out with something like this.

    Thanks so much Sephiroth, I've wanted a Bible I could view on the DS for a long time now! It was rough copying all the books out of text files and then reading them with Moonshell, so this rocks. Thanks again!

    Interesting.

    Not that the Bible is important to me (it's not), but it's always handy to have access to a copy of something if it's part of a conversation.
