    I have a idea but i need help if anyone can..

    I want to make a menu like the iphone but working with shortcuts to.nds files

    If you what to add your apps to it (like a calculator or something)you can,maybe we could make this a work together project.

    So what i need is to make a background for the image then the buttons and skin them,have links to them to the file system on the card so when you click on one with the stylist it boots the .nds file up..?

    I don't know anything about C++ but i am willing to learn..
    I have Palib,devkitpro and VC++..

    Here is a pic of what i would like it to look like..

    Please help.. [​IMG]

    This could work but whats the point? I mean really. If you already have a M3,R4,Cyclo, thats enough of a menu. Will be cool but no use for it.

    No, you should keep spamming him with 30 messages before he replies, it's the only way.

    From Spinal

    "The .ini file should be straight forward, each icon has an X and Y coordinate and a size. Also each icon has a path. Just look in the .ini file to check. I have allowed up to 20 icons and cheated a bit by just using a single background image."


    Here is a picture of mine but i have changed the background image,I think it looks better this way..

    Yeah it looks good but can you really be bothered if it has no real important purpose?

    WTF I booted it on acekard rog and it does nothing, why is any sense of that.

    edit
    I read on palib forum that you have to edit (i think ini file) and write a patch of what icon boot what thing, it is stupid really for iphone fanboys only.
