    "How to customize the menu.

    The full customization relies on the ini.
    There are two ways of editing via notepad or Menudo Assistant. This tutorial helps explain the functions.
    Open up system_theme.ini. The ini is somehow similar to an html, honestly it feels like a scripting language to me.

    Menu0runs = fat:/TTMENU.nds
    If you press A while on Goto Original Menu (Menu0) it would run:
    fat:/TTMENU.nds

    You can also change it make it to view a folder by linking it with the folder instead.

    Menu7runs = games
    When you run Menu6Runs(Games) it explores the games folder.

    There are also special functions like:
    gba - loads slot2
    power - powers off

    to use it just add it after the Menu(X)runs =
    like so:
    Menu8runs = power

    Misc Stuffs:

    You can speed up the animation by holding the B button while navigating.

    To open a file via stylus slide the name towards to the left.

    You can hold the buttons in directions before you power on your ds to do autorun runs.
    Ini Example:
    startupUP = fat:/TTMENU.nds
    startupDOWN = games
    startupLEFT = fat:/Halo_ds.nds
    startupRIGHT= fat:/beup.nds
    It uses the same style with the menu(X)runs.

    If you can load any homebrews, try changing the ini:
    //auto
    //Chishm's DLDI Loader
    //M3 Internal Loader
    //GBAMP Internal Loader
    //EZ-Flash IV (4) Internal Loader
    //SuperCard Internal Loader

    NDSloader = 0
    the 0 variable runs auto detection.

    The complexity of the customization would make it flexible.
    Sorry but this demo is very unuserfriendly.
    Make sure you extract all to root then dldi. I just noticed this version is very complicated but still I Hope you guys would enjoy."

    um. has anyone got this workin yet? i kind of ignored all the "customization" things. i put all the files in a folder. when i loaded the nds, it made weird noises, then my ds shut off o.o that's never happened before. do i need to put all the files on root or something? and do i need to rename the nds file to autorun or something? i have a r4 btw

    Is it meant to do anything besides showing a fancy menu? Because for me it doesn't...

    Supposedly it works on Cyclo DS. When I boot it up, you see the menu for a short time then the screens turn black. I'm disappointed. [​IMG]

    Sorry for the complexity, and the disappointments. [​IMG]

    not dissapointed just needs a few tweaks here and there we know your not finished [​IMG]

    what it needs the most is the ability to find then launch/load .nds files properly If you can get it to do that then it will be an INSTANT HIT!

    this is what people want/expect from a replacment/alternate menu on ds [​IMG]


    don't get me wrong THIS A COOL LOOKING MENU but needs that VITAL function or its pretty usless [​IMG]

    It works for me fine on Sakura (not using iTouch menu). It boots up fine and runs perfectly.

    Some critisism:
    -When you select any option other than Games, the whole menu just reboots. It would be much easier just to say 'This feature is not included in this demo.'
    -The game selection screen is really glitchy. Pressing anything other than up or down instantly shuts down the DS.
    -The background (I'll suppose it's a video) cuts itself off horizontally occasionally.
    -My DS is constantly being shut down, without warning.
    -Wasn't the beta better than this?

    Otherwise, it looks really good. Just needs ALOT of improvement.
