    @Tesa and I were looking at this last night.

    It writes everything to the screen by pixels, line by line. For those interested, the cover must be 160x225, named icone.tga, and placed at SD:/wiiu/games/<name>/icone.tga

    I don't know how to do the background "image" though. Source is here.

    By the way, in French "par" simply means "by".

    Why TGA format exactly? Is it because the Wii U uses them for their bootup screens?

    Does using this make it slower to navigate?

    I think the one with the background is a mod made by @Markus95 (not sure if they are the same from the french website and here).

    I didn't actually check what it's based on but I assume loadiine 4. (At least according to that french website.)

    Please say in the OP, in the homebrew that the original is from dimok and golden45, and on which version it's based.
    Make it open source on GitHub, too.

    It's written there.

    It is.

    All you need to do is open the link and it shows you the Github link. Both of them are referenced there.

    If you use Chrome, you can use Translate (by bookmarks in the URL bar) to change it to English after clicking on the link. But otherwise, I agree with you, this is an English forum and information should be provided in English.

    I don't. (and I'm French, so, I can read this, but if only French people can, on an English forum, that's dumb.)
    And that version of Loadiine is in French too. What's the point posting it here, then ?

    I used translate.google.com myself since I can't speak french. If you can read french why didn't you just read the post on your own, the Github was linked there and also here by @fiveighteen .
    Apart from that, it's quite common that source-code or "first hand" information is not in English (in some scenes it's mostly Russian). Why should we ignore it? It's an interesting piece of work and quite useful. We could obviously also just wait a few days until a different (english) page publishes something about it but why would that be any useful?

    Sure. But maybe that the best would be to read how the edits were done and to make a pull request to the original code with cleaner modifications. I just read the changes that have been done, and god, it's really dirty.

    either because it's the format of the pictures used by the system menu (icons and background are in tga in the meta folder),
    or because targa is an array or RGB values and is easier to parse. RGB RGB RGB etc.
    there's no compressing involved and it can be used easily in inline rendering mode.

    However, it's very heavy to use.
