    Okay I just downloaded gnuboy gx and I'm very happy with it [​IMG].
    But it doesnt have a forwarder channel... [​IMG]

    I looked endlessly on google on how to make one. I kept being misled or sent to old pages that said there was a better way and that to ANOTHER better way and so ON.
    Well I got sick of swimming in the endless informational ocean that is google, being thrown from coast to coast, so now I ask here.

    I have a Wii (as described in my sig), what would be the best way to make a forwarder channel.
    If you could post detailed info as to everything I need I would be grateful. [​IMG]

    It doesnt have to be super fancy, though Id love it NOT to be a white screen with a title.

    On the other hand you could just take this as a request and make it for me... but then I wouldnt learn [​IMG]

    Well thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Well, you won't like it because it's only text on unicolor background, but you could check :

    Simple Forwarder Channel Creator : Tell him the folder name you are using in apps/ and compile a forwarder channel.

    You can also check this topic which have a "generic" (non hardcoded path) forwarders : edit a config file on your SD with the path of the boot.dol to launch
    You can also find dynamic forwarders channel with different loading path according to the pressed button. (though the paths are hardcoded, you'll have to recompile yourself to add your own emulator name and path).

    If you want to compile a channel yourself, you'll need devkitPro with the libOGC version provided by SpaceJump. (You may require an old devkitPPC version too)
    You can replace the picture directly on the compilation process.


    If you have already have a Wad channel but with a wrong banner (for example you used Simple Forwarder Channel Creator), you can create your own Banner animation.
    SifJar tutorial
    TurboGraphX ROM injector tutorial (have steps for banner replacement with your own picture).
