Looks great. This is probably a weird question, but is there any chance you could make a homebrew loader that loads homebrew from a different folder in the SD card? I'd like to have 2 separate Homebrew loaders, one for just tools and system apps, and another just for homebrew games if possible.

So, no info shown? Some apps have a somewhat strange name not related to their purposes.
When install, users know what is that app.

Also when you open a game, you only know its name.

I appreciate this actually. It's nice that the homebrew launcher gets an update after sitting so long in inactivity. And the Pro Controller works with it, which is awesome. However, I am with these guys about the text, but for different reasons. One thing I think has been missing from the Wiis Homebrew Channel is the ability to not only go back or open the app, but to delete it as well. Sure, you can go to the app store to delete it, or use wiixplorer/wiiushell to delete it. But it would be nice to have it right there. Do you think that's possible to add that in? Or maybe an internal file explorer with simple options? Thanks man.

this is interesting, but don't a lot of homebrew apps require the gamepad anyway? that's my only concern. I've downloaded the channel version, since I already have the original channel installed, I'll just remove that, then install this when I have a chance in a few days.

This is true, the game pad is needed for a good majority of apps. But there's a thread on here that's going threw and adding pro controller support to some key apps, that would be enough to get you by. Plus it's been added to the Open Homebrew Channel, and a mod of Wiixplorer that I found. It can get you by.

I remember that thread. I haven't used any of them. it's not often I go into the homebrew channel. the main homebrew I use is usually about 5 channel versions. the ftp server app by @Laf111 , I think, requires the gamepad though, which is a bit annoying. you just need to enter it, then it shuts down the system once you exit with home. however, I could've sworn home didn't work with the pro controller. that's the homebrew I use most often, mostly to add wii u themes to my system.

There actually already was a Homebrew Launcher version with Joystick navigation made a bit over a year ago here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/homebre...ebrew-gamepad-free.563011/page-5#post-9164150 Rest of the new features are neat though. Frankly I prefer the little popup telling you what the Homebrew app does in more detail, so I'm not crazy about the instant boot change where that pop up doesn't appear, could be frustrating if you accidentally ever select the wrong app.

Dimok doesn't update homebrew launcher since 2016. It's a new version with a new UI and feature fork from GaryOderNichts with D-pad support.
Here is all feature:
  • Add support for joystick navigation
  • Add NX homebrew launcher icon
  • Quick loading apps, remove app info popup
  • New theme, font from Switch
Download: https://github.com/maytinhdibo/homebrew_launcher/releases

Btw, do I make and mod it legal?
Wonderful!

Hi,

Just to let you know that it is supposed to work with the PRO controller and that WiiuFtpServer now returns to Wii-U Menu instead of shuting down since V5-2.

Have a nice day

I installed the latest, and I still can't get the pro controller to work. it just completely loses sync. I tested the hb menu, and it works with the controller.

Sorry, i didn't understand if you used the PRO controller for the HBL Menu test.
Since i can't send you a PM : sorry to "pollute" this thread...

When you said "it looses sync" : did you mean that buttons stop working ?
