    Remember when TC promised us that they will deliver us a new GUI for the CycloDS? When do you think that is going to come and what will be some surprises in it?

    God damn misleading thread. I don't know what to expect. Maybe boxart support, and 'favorite' icons on the home screen or something.

    Make sure when posting threads like this that you put a question mark after it. That way people know you're asking about the new GUI and not saying that the new GUI is here [​IMG].

    Goddamn this thread! Next time, label it properly! *pissed off*

    PS; I don't think they "promised" it. They just said they were taking suggestions.

    I really wish they hadn't promised it. And I really wish Blizzard hasn't announced Starcraft 2 so early. [​IMG]

    I hate it when companies pretty much have to lie to generate hype.

    So in conclusion, just forget the whole "GUI incident" ever happened. And if Team Cyclops ever does release a GUI overhaul, it'll be a nice surprise for us.

    Damn I was about to pop in my MicroSD reader to download the new GUI. [​IMG]

    But yeah on topic, hope they put in some eye candy in the new one.

    I wasn't mislead.... but no one cares. I wish they put like a nice sliding menu in it.

    Why do you need a GUI overhaul, anyway? Is having the best cart is no longer good enough?

    EDIT: Wait... does this have anything to do with Sakura? I sincerely hope not...

    Sliding menu sounds like a direct reference to Sakura... which just might be the smoothest OS on any flashcard judging by everything I've read. If the CycloDS got a GUI that good, I'd probably find a way to afford it (and a new GBA expansion, of course - I doubt the Cyclo can use the M3 Expansion).

    Just a decent scrollbar, man, that's all I ask for. Just a decent scrollbar.

    Yes, I would really like it if Team Cyclops made the new GUI. I bet they aren't going to do it in a while.

    I recently opened a topic at the Team Cyclops forum about this subject, you may want to check it out: http://www.teamcyclops.com/forum/showthrea...91113#post91113 [​IMG] (But you can't register yourself at the Team Cyclops forum, so If you want to react at my topic, you could ask me to start a similar topic on GBATemp [​IMG])

    I don't see why some people who don't want a new GUI would have to be so against people asking for a new GUI. Whether they are developing a new GUI or not, the chances are that TC will still be releasing the necessary bug fixes and new game support. So you have your needs satisfied.

    The thing is, a lot of us forked out the extra cash for a Cyclo over, say, a Real or an Acekard, knowing we are getting a better cart. While the Cyclo is of course still better in term of features than these, we actually see a lacking GUI compared to other carts (even the Real has a better GUI than the Cyclo now which is saying something). A new GUI is a luxury, not a necessity, but then the CycloDS is a luxury product. If I wanted a necessity in terms of playing DS games I could have spent over 10 quid less.
