what happened with this?

Just an update; next version update for NX-GIC will be within a month hopefully

Plan is to add;
  • Support for cleaning up currently installed game icons on the switch
  • Method of speeding up the process of 'Scan' (downloading of new icons)
  • And support for new theme styles
Theme teasers below;

what happened with this?

Ran into trouble getting this working ... it works fine if you wish 'touchscreen' which i doubt anyone uses it... but if you use D-PAD/analog... it gets wacky; i had to take a break from it

I wish making themes was easier; but anyways i'll see if i can give it another shot maybe next monnt.

GIC updates will follow after the theme works

Anyone have problem with sys tweak on ATM v1 fw 12.1?

I'm booting via Hekate and it works fine on fw 12.1
also, i'm using systweak compiled by @8BitWonder (https://github.com/16BitWonder/switch-sys-tweak/releases)

Yes, you can transfer manually via USB or SD Card mount

* Ready your queue in NX-GIC
* File Explorer > Go to NX-GIC folder
* Go to Output folder
* Copy paste the folders to your switch /atmosphere/content folder

Hi ! Fantastic software ! I have a question though, I searched through the wiki and all but didn't found anything about how to create custom icon. I understand that the switch is expecting 256x256 but for vertical and horizontal icons I don't get how to do it. Can someone please help me ?
Edit : nevermind, found it!

    http://harmful.cat-v.org/software/OO_programming/ <- OOP allows a generic build to scale approach to solve problems. And compatibility. In my experience an API/Shared Libraries by being encapsulated, is less likely to get optimized/destroyed by the compiler, specifically in embedded platforms.

    No doubt it will be slower, but if you can and have the resources to hand-optimize away the code
    , do it.

    Also allows to separate pieces in components: Init, update, destroy, which enables the whole program to be inheritable. If you're creating a first person shooter, and want to add multiplayer, you will have to use OOP regardless.

    I remember when you had to write your code exactly or things would just break instantly lol 48K was all you had on an Apple IIe and that was with added RAM ai think... Forgot so much over the years lol

    yeah, psi gets it. Imagine building a 3D game and the compiler/linker breaks your code because you didn't order the data in a certain way

    Yeah I dimly recall if your have the compiler set to optimize too agresively things can get crazy

    Like setting it really high can work but sometimes requires rewrite of code and that's if the error spat out makes any sense
