    Well too much softmodding stuff... here is something you can use safely... no system menu patching, no ios bashing, no big boot delays, nothing...

    1. Install preloader v0.27
    2. Copy the dol to root of the sd card and configure it autoboot in preloader settings
    3. Set return to setting as system menu in the preloader options... save the settings
    4. Copy your custom intro picture as boot.jpg and mp3 as boot.mp3 into the root of your sd card... (bigger the mp3, longer the loading time for music)
    5. Boot your wii

    In the intro screen press A to boot into system menu, press B to boot into homebrew channel...

    Preloader hacks will act normal... so it's nice to set no health and warning screen patch to enabled!

    Here is the initial customizable version :

    http://www.tepetaklak.com/data/CrazyIntroV0.3.rar
    * Shutdown with wiimote works... Normal power button or reset doesn't work, probably interferes with mp3 playing... yet to be resolved. (upgrading to preloader 0.28 solves this issue)
    * Made it somewhat configurable, you can assign channels to directional buttons in the wiimote and quick boot into them.
    Example config xml provided. PictureIntroEffect and PictureOutroEffect settings have no use at the moment.
    You should put the xml configuration file in the root of the sd card. It should be named crazyintro.xml .

    Example config file :
    CODE

    ÂÂÂÂ
    ÂÂÂÂ
    ÂÂÂÂ
    ÂÂÂÂ

    * Added loading system menu when music stops
    * Possibly fixed a file reading bug, if there was

    ps: It's intentionally not doing any hacks since preloader already does that... so this intended to be used by those who already have no problem playing their games... especially modded wii owners, I'm shouting to you [​IMG]

    Current version


    Scrolling stuff


    In the works

    So people who don't want to risk bricking their Wii on the SoftMii, can use this instead?

    Well not a movie this time... although video can be made too... anything can be made... it's the preloader doing the most of the work after all... thanks to crediar!!

    This quick one I throw is just a single jpeg displaying and a mp3 track played along with it...

    Brick risk equal to preloader's brick risk... not more than that...

    I suspect if it would come from me but expect any fancy stuff... whatever a homebrew capable of, you can have it at the launch of your wii...

    Nice one. Might not have been a good idea to call this a 'launcher' though, as you might get some people coming into this thread thinking it's a disc or ISO loader or similar! Maybe a 'startup intro' or something.

    Actually it was the initial name for the stuff... As soon as I put something customizable with some good effects I'll change the name... I'm working on it

    Well just homebrew, serious stuff only used when launching the homebrew channel...

    I got the jpeg loading code from teknecal's codemii tutorials... mp3 playing from minimp3 player...

    I'll do a customizable version so anyone can use any image & mp3 and a selected effect like scrolling, stretching whatever I can get handy!

    here is the scrolling one : http://www.tepetaklak.com/data/poclauncherscroll.rar

    Can't wait. Awesome work man, I had no idea this was so far into development because of the massive rush of new releases. [​IMG]

    this is pretty cool. though, if i had a "cintro" it would be less than over a minute long. nice POC!

    I am looking very forward to it.

    Do videos take longer to load?

    Even if the video is a very small file size / short in length?
