    EDIT: DO NOT ASK STUPID QUESTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN ASKED SUCH AS "WHEN WILL IT BE RELEASED?" OR "WILL IT RUN MY ROMZ!!??!11" Soul_Anger has answered these questions and does not want to answer them again. Read the thread before asking questions to make sure you are not asking a question which has been asked. Soul_anger has put a lot of work into MenuDO, if you dont think you'll like it - GO AWAY. Dont flame here. If you dont like that it doesnt run ROMs - GO AWAY. Dont flame here.

    Soul_anger said if someone opend a topic to ask MenuDO questions, he would answer them, so here goes (feel free to add more questions and hopefully soul will come and answer them):

    1. Does it load ROMs on YSMenu supported cards or not? I have been told that it has a YSMenu plugin, and I have also heard that if you want to load ROMs via YSMenu, you need to load YSMenu and then run the ROMs from there, so which is true?

    2. Does it have a plugin system of any kind, allowing you to open files in external apps or anything?

    3. Does it work on Max Media Dock? (I know, its crap, but I've been looking forward to MenuDO for a while, and if it can't run on my card, I'll be kinda disappointed...)

    That's all for now. Thanks in advance for answering soul.

    Soul - I apologize if this thread has caused you grief. Its a lot my fault and I am very sorry.

    Can you please tell us which carts can load roms?
    Is the XMB skin still there?
    DPG4 support?
    Will the music player have mp3 support?
    Is it going to release this year?
    How much space does the whole thing take up?

    1. What features does it have?
    2. Do you think it was worth waiting for?
    3. What could you do in it?
    4. Why did it take so long you announced it on October something.

    1. A lot... I can't say though. It's SoulAnger's job.
    2. Hell yes.
    3. What a silly question :/ let me rephrase it "What can't you do in it?"
    4. It took a long time because of the amount of features.

    Sorry for the lame answers by the way, I'm trying to answer without giving any information SoulAnger doesn't want to give, and without leaving him the fun ones. He gets sexual satisfaction from this sort of thing, so I gotta leave him some. [​IMG] Even if he is napping...

    Let me tell you, MENUdo will blow any competition out the water. It's just awesome.

    The dev thread was closed because people asked this kind of questions.

    At the rate information is released to the public, eventually MenuDo would be forgotten by everybody.
    I'm starting to have doubts on menudo. any flashcart developer would never draw information from the public for this long.

    Well, being a beta tester, and seeing what has been going on from the inside, I can safely say there is no need to doubt MENUdo or Soulanger. It has come a VERY long way since those videos you've seen [​IMG]

    The main reason information was kept back was simply because SoulAnger didn't want to over-hype everybody, and allow certain less than pleasant members flame.

    Ah I see I cant blame you guys. ^^

    The reason i tried to stop posting informations was to lessen the hype.
    I had the idea of that the less hype i would generate the better a user's first impression and experience will be. ^^"
    Similar to reading a story, I felt that the informations are spoilers to the juicy plot twist. [​IMG]

    During the first betas, I already exceeded an amount of my tester's expectations on their first try.

    Most of my testers really loved MENUdo from the start. Hence, they all got individual ideas of what a best OS would be. Most of the times when they suggest ideas, its already in MENUdo they just didnt know before they tried it. For a very ambitious project, I knew the fans would be very ambitious as well. But in the end all of those expectations exceeded. These guys are mercluke, and ShadowEO.

    One of my tester who loved his PSP, heck he's a PSP person and he loves his homebrews.
    I was quite skeptical if he would like it. He tested the whole app while we were in skype, he loved it! Each quarter second, he says "Wow". As a programmer it felt good, to see someone love your work. It feels so much like doing a cum (my program) shot, to a person's face, and he enjoys it a lot, hence he has his mouth open the whole time. [​IMG] His name is Skyline969.

    A number of my testers, never knew MENUdo until they tried it. Basically no expectations. Altho they were astonished and amazed by it. Heck some of them even bugged me to post infos about MENUdo. These guys are Granville, fgghjjkll, Rock_Raiyu, seedvt, zeromac, and Noitora.

    Part of my testers, are homebrew coders. Some may think they arent, but they are my friend. I cant say what they think, but hopefully I could say that they were amazed. They are spinal_cord, (known for dsision2) tr1ppy (for the palib community), and someone who might not wanna get his name said (he is VERY known here at gbatemp). [​IMG]

    A few weeks ago I started to get a guinea pig, to toy with. I fed and him with lots of informations about MENUdo. Gave him what to expect. He had high expectations with it. Heck he has a lot of suggestions before he had it. A few days ago he tried MENUdo. He was speechless. [​IMG] His name is Placeholder.

    And finally Antoligy... He has no DS... He was amazed! [​IMG]

    I recruited two final guinea pigs for two separate experiments. [​IMG]
    Sarvesh, for hyping but now with videos and screens. And finally, a friend of mine who wants to frustrate the heck out of me by searching for bugs. ._. Another World

    Anyway starting today, I will plan to release new infos and screens, and I will see if I could do it daily. [​IMG]

    1. A lot of features. ^^" I have to say them one by one.

    2. So far as my testers think.. [02:28] Placeholder: Absolutely!

    3. Think of it as an OS in your pocket.. Hmm isnt this the same with 1? ^^"

    4. Good question. First of all this is my first programming project, and OS is too much for one man to handle. I had to do menudo GFX, menudo coding, wifi (server and client coding), website coding (the website is very important for MENUdo's wifi features), website css, conceptualizing, directing, and a friggin alot more; all this in my spare time. :| Like what the secret coder tester told me, "I didnt expect this too many features. This is already too much for one man to handle. I'm surprised you came this far"

    I thought he was talking about Red Bull.

    I gave up on this ever being released, so whatever it turns out to be, it'll be a nice surprise.

    A lot of unique and innovative wifi features. It does not have Web Browser. Currently it has a Messaging system, Realtime Wifi .Sav Backup to MENUdo's official site, GamerTag, Game Page(Navigate and Get FAQs, Cheats, FCs, Boxart, AR codes, and alot more -- think of it as visiting GameFAQs in your DS, by just pressing X then GamePages) and a lot more. I'll detail these features in the incoming days

    I just took cam-pictures of MENUdo and some of its themes, I'll edit this after I upload them. They are unedited and hi-res, so you guys will know its real.

    MSN? Not sure, but right now it isnt here. ^^" Maybe after the first public build? But I can assure you that the there will be Facebook, and twitter support. Like auto post of what you are doing in your DS and MENUdo. (like, Morso Dunno is playing The World Ends With You)

    Any, here are the cumshots [​IMG] Open wide! Anyway these are shot of a few of MENUdo's current themes. Like I said the flexibility of the customization is very strong. The detail to these themes are quite amazing IHMO; hence, if you look at some of the shots, the background is moving.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Hmm, I think I overdid it tho. Maybe they are too much.
