    Please keep any and all drama, trolling and snide remarks out of this thread.

    This is MENUdo, an ambitious gaming miniOS/menu-replacement/frontend project. Created by soulanger. This release expected to be the first and final release. It was prepacked using my settings. It's prepacked with an outdated AKAIO (when i last touched my ds), 20 themes, and homebrew, feel free to repackage it and upload it anywhere.

    It really holds tons of potential and is really dear to me but how i handled this project was a massive disappointment to me. Oh how ironic that my account name suits how i feel about my self whenever i think about this project nowadays.
    A project tester was right when he told me about Murphy's Law and MENUdo.
    Thanks to me the only team member, who tried to achieve perfection to meet expectations during his worst days of his life (being a penniless college student in a third world country with, no internet, no pc, no ds, and lots of family drama) really destroyed this project. The hate around the community didnt help as well, it was insult added to injury. A person from the community hacked my servers (www.gamenow.asia) that delayed release, and wrecked the wiki, it destroy MENUdo's major features. Online save backup (think realtime dropbox for savefiles), Gamercard, and a lot more are now incompatible with this game. I'm also so sorry to those who donated, but i did tell you guys to wait for me to upload before starting to donate. Still I feel responsible for that.. I will pay you guys back soon if I am to gain money.. I have to say though, the donation helped me so much in the times of my need.

    I could go on and on about this, I could apologize as much as I want, but nothing can be fixed especially this guilt and disappointment I have.

    Note that there are bugs existing and the archive was packed very unneatly. I had a feeling that I would never be able to release this application if i dont do it now. R4 support is still compatible, although the loaders are not existing in the package and the build is outdated I think.

    Note, L button allows you to switch into os mode and multitask.

    Finally, I would like to say sorry and as well as thank you to the community and my friends.

    Amazing that this finally came out, too bad the creator was going through such tough times though and ultimately couldn't create the product they wanted. It's still great that it was released. Maybe somebody can take what is there and try to create what the original creator envisioned.

    I am really sad about how this went down for SoulAnger. I hope when he releases the source, people will make it the complete project he always dreamed of.

    Wow. After all this years, finally we have a release of long-awaited? menudo! [​IMG] I do understand the hardship coz I've been there [​IMG] but I am no programmer so that makes the difference lol but anyway, I congratulate the owner/menudo that even though there's so much happening it made public. However, what I don't understand is that why not make it open source in the first place? would ruined ownership perhaps?

    I dunno... Why didn't the SC team release the source with the SNES emu right away? I guess it needs some kinks worked out or something first...

    You worked hard on MENUdo! I am so upset about people bashing you and being assholes.

    When I learn a little more about code and programming, maybe I could contribute... if somebody else doesn't first. [​IMG] I am very impressed with what I have seen so far, running it and testing it out.

    It would be epic if Normmatt combined AKAIO and Menudo into one project. But that's asking far far too much. The main reason I wanted Menudo was the gamercard feature, but I'll definitely give this a shot right away.
