    Title says it all.
    Latest YSMenu was,what it seemed like, AGES ago.

    Maybe this is another abandoned project? [​IMG]
    God, I hope not. YSMenu is what has revived my R4, back from the dead.


    Anyone know anything about this?

    I thought it was dead because Yasu was pissed because people were linking to the firmware without his permission or something like that. thats why he's not doing updates anymore

    There's nothing wrong with Yasu, I bet he's just taking a break from all the work he's done for the scene and whatnot, everyone needs to rest once in a while.

    Implying that he should continue to develop the project for the remainder of his life.

    Maybe he stopped working on YSMenu because it already does everything that it's supposed to? Remember that game fixes come from the DSTT firmware, not YSMenu.

    So, he's taking a break, or has he quit?
    I hope he continues to work on YSMenu, because otherwise my r4 is useless with the 1.18 firmware...

    Well, apart from running simple NDS ROMs and using cheats, it has no real functions.
    For instance, no text editor and not really graphically pretty.
    I've yet to see some decent skins, y'know?

    I can find lots of new tweaks it could use.

    Yea, the skinning could be a lot nicer, I miss having the background change when you went in to folders, or changed months.

    A text editor though? That's a neat idea, but I don't think it would ever be a really great one.

    Reason being that it would be tertiary to ROM loading, and more suited for a Homebrew app dev. Some one who was only concerned about making a really good Text Editor, Rather than Yasu having to divide his time between the two.

    I've yet to find a text editor that I thought was worth my time on the DS, and same with the PSP.

    so someone could cash from his work, thats brilliant!!
    maybe we could have a gbatxxx flash cart + ysmenu ?
    then we will have lots of fund for the server

    so lets kidnapped yasu and make him our slave!

    if i didn't get the wrong person, he is still around
    because i do see him post on a particular forum

    A list of what YSMenu is yet to perform:

    -Text Editor
    -Better skinning system
    -Deletion of Folders
    -More formats eg .mp3 music
    -More user friendly START menu


    Any more?
