    THE 2018 SWITCH HOMEBREW BOUNTY
    MONTH 2: SWITCH APPLICATIONS

    What is the 2018 GBAtemp Switch Homebrew Bounty? Read more here.

    The second month has now officially begun. You have until December 31st (23:59:59 UTC+00) to submit your Switch homebrew application and get a chance to win a massive cash reward! There will be 4 consecutive months, one for each category. We'd like to remind you that this is the second month, and this month dedicated to the following category.

    CATEGORY 2: Switch Applications

    This category is meant to reward authors of Switch applications, as in, programs that run natively on the Switch itself and serve a specific purpose such as media players, file managers, homebrew loaders, and much more (this short list is non-exhaustive). If you aren't sure whether your project fits in this category, look at the other categories listed in this thread, and if in doubt, simply ask a moderator.

    The top 5 highest-voted projects in this category will receive:
    #1: $1,000 reward
    #2: $500 reward
    #3: $300 reward
    #4: $150 reward
    #5: $55 reward

    In order to submit your project, please respect the following instructions:
    • Upload your project to the GBAtemp Download Center. Make sure to give a proper description, screenshots, anything you might find useful. This is your chance to showcase your project, the better your page looks, the more chance you may receive votes from judges.
    • If your project is not entirely new, it must at least come with a major/significant update, so please describe specifically what new feature(s) the upgrade brings forth.
    • After your project is posted to the download center, please post a comment in this thread to link to your project.

    After December 31st, two voting sessions will begin simultaneously: a staff vote, and a patron vote (for our backers on Patreon). The results will be announced a week after.

    Half of this sum is generously donated by yours truly, GBAtemp!

    A HID to VPAD thingy for controllers like on Wii U would be awesome for any end user.

    Like I mentioned on the first bounty thread, lot of users already requested homebrew.
    If you want to contribute but don't have an idea yet, I compiled the requests to a single place where you can choose from.
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/post-homebrew-ideas-suggestions-requests-here.514524/

    For this bounty session, look in Media and Utils tabs of the first post's chart.

    Of course you are not limited to the requests, any surprise is welcome :)

    A media player in general would be pretty damn awesome, especially if it can stream from upnp or smb media servers.

    I thought the goal of the homebrew bounties was to encourage devs to write new apps, not just submit an app you wrote 4 months ago.

    Yes new apps are the main purpose of the bounty and voting should take care of that too, at least I did for the first bounty.
    It needs to have a big improvement. editing a font color, or fixing bugs is not considered a valid entry. Changelog since last release before the version submitted to this thread will be taken in account.
    I suppose Kodi would be considered "update" and accepted if submitted for switch even if it's an old app due to big improvement for switch. for example game ports will be accepted for last bounty, but fully new project will have more power in my vote decision. coding from scratch, or using someone else sources and compiling is different. same for emulators, most emulators are old and just updated to work on switch, not written from zero, unless you make a dynarec for aarch64 there's not much work done.

    If you submit a switch homebrew you released 4 months ago and did nothing new since then, it'll not be accepted.

    nx-shell submission will be judge on changelog from december 1st to 31, or since v1.05, not on its usefulness of current state. currently, only few changes : makes buttons react to cancel command, adds image rotation.
    I keep track of changelogs and whether projects are new or updated on wikitemp.

    Would anyone be interested in making an RPG Maker XP RGSS Player? That would make a TON of games portable, and would really ROCK!

    I wonder if it'd be possible to get the Steam Link app running on switch, given it's made for ARM hardware, would love to see a dev take that on!

    My wishlist:
    Video recording over 30 seconds (like press a button to record and press it again to stop)
    A fully functioning video player (i know we already have mp3)
    Be able to boot into rcm or stock with homebrew (should be now possible to make with Atmosphere 0.8.1)
    Coldboot CFW (I know this won't happen for a while but its worth putting it out there)(would like the option above to go with this)
