    Thanks, I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious. I've also got an icon.png and meta.xml ready to go!

    I said that if we load Homebrew Launcher offline (in cache), we need ONLY the first time online, after, we will load loadiine offline if we have Homebrew Launcher in cache.

    I like it better this way.

    I also made a new one
    I thought doing some dust particles/circles would be nice to reflect the launcher background.

    humm, transparency is not good enough, I still see the edges.
    edit: no more visible edges

    I don't have a lot of fonts, only the default from fresh windows install.

    I tried it, and it worked.
    I don't know if it's "well" enough.

    I could browse, rename, delete, overwrite.
    overwriting had a little lag before transfer started, but it worked fine.
    I didn't try move or copy to another folder.

    no, he asked if Upaint was released as elf format.
    but no, I don't think there's a elf version yet.

    I used that icon on the screenshot of the first post to add more folders, but there's no homebrew in the folder.

    I'm also using self hosting, and the default page is from my server, but its not loaded if I don't have internet access (blocked by proxy).
    it ends on a screen telling that the page couldn't be loaded instead of displaying from the cache.

    Maybe you did something else than just set the page and reboot ?

    I think it's in elf format because it's working in 5.5.0' elf loader

    But I didn't try it out yet

    Clean, flat, simple and doesn't look like it was done in paint for Windows 95 ;)

    Do you still need an icon/logo? I could work one one if nobody else has one posted yet.

    does this have the same process to activate like loadiine gx2? does this have a high success rate at activating or is it the same as loadine gx2?

    @vgmoose:
    the icon.png size must be 256 x 96px
    your spacegame icon is a little bigger (256 × 109px).


    filfat :
    yeah, now it just looks like it's done in paint for w3.1 instead.
    A rectangle with a different border/fill color and a text.

    Hey, basically you have to extract the internal parts of the examples without all the libwiiu parts that make it only work as browser exploit payloads. It will not be just a copy/paste them without any change. For the Makefile, its easiest to just use the Makefile from the hello world example. Once you copied over the .c/.h files from the examples to the source folder of hello world you remove the libwiiu headers. You dont need them as you have almost all the export functions you need in the "dynamic_libs" includes. You are not restricted to use them though. You can use all the libwiiu headers and do all the acquiring of libs and find exports too of course. But if you really want to include the libwiiu headers then you have to include them with correct path reference and also define the macros the libwiiu headers use in the correct way. Its more complicated then to just switch to the already available functions in dynamic_libs inscludes in the example.

    If you still really need an example of one libwiiu application ported then name one and i will port it quickly to demonstrate the use of the launcher.

    PS:
    The error you get is because you are missing the VER define.

    To the people that are helping out here with designs and icons;
    Big thanks! I will talk with Cyan and we will decide on one that is gonna be packed into the release package.

    Ok, I put the submitted icons to the same place.
    what do you think about them?

    submitted icons for HBL
    [​IMG] (me. I can change the font but I like the bg)
    [​IMG] (wiiunator)
    [​IMG](Plasma shadow)
    [​IMG](filfat)
    [​IMG](dechad)
    dechad asked for my BG and might submit another icon soon. I'll add it here.

    Icons for loadiine
    [​IMG](wiiugold)
    [​IMG] (wiiunator 1)
    [​IMG] (wiiunator 2)

    I like the current icon (made from eclipsesin avatar). I got used to see it here and on website exploit hosting. other users are also probably used to associate it to loadiine, maybe we could keep it.

    FTPiiU
    [​IMG] (wiiunator)
    [​IMG] (sin is in)




    note: please, use the proper aspect ratio, or submit it directly at the correct size.
    I resized two icons and they weren't good ratio so I deleted/added borders.
