    postLoader2 b9

    * Channel browser: Changed again cert.sys support. Maybe this time works...
    * Channel browser: Modified nand selection menu.
    * Channel browser: Modified the notification of cache rebuild required
    * Corrected internal build version (was b6 for b7 e b8)

    Waver, can you test without cert.sys ? Thank you in advance!

    Also I need some feedback about ocarina codes... someone can test them ?

    PostLoader2 B9

    Fixed:
    Splash screen fixed. Thank you

    Regression:
    Code support is completely broken in emulated nand. Games (vc/ww) load great but codes from NAND,SD and USB do nothing at all. No message about codes found at all. No errors or codes applied at all.

    Testing sneek/uneek...Can not boot into PostLoader via installed channel (freezes my hard drive). I can access sneek/uneek just fine. I have a full nand of 633 items installed. Installing PostLoader into Priiloader on my nand freezes when I try to load sneek/uneek, so tha doesn't work either. I can reduce my nand items, but then that defeats the whole purpose of having full access to everything at once.
    I will try to just load virtual console games (remove all wii ware) and see if PostLoader load in sneek/uneek...brb...testing.

    New bugs:
    Channel pictures only show up when I hover over them, otherwise it's just shows the default picture. This is for my "mii channel" and my "netflix channel". My wife's wii ware game "dr mario online" Shows up as it should. Only have those channels installed on my real nand.
    Update: If I bring up the menu (home button) then exit, the pictures will show up like normal. However, if I leave the channel screen... to go to the homebrew screen... then come back again. The pictures are gone (replace with the default image).

    Are you sure ? It is working for me... how many titles you have ? It can take some time to refresh icons...

    can you this one ?

    Yes, pictures show up now with this. Thank you.

    I did refresh the icons when I first installed B9. But then my mii channel graphic would bleed into my netflix graphic. When I left channels menu then returned back they would be gone again.

    I can assure you that's not the case, given the OP has already confirmed that the app tries to load IOS249 when it starts. Keep in mind removing IOS249 is not the same thing as replacing it with a stub (SNEEK/UNEEK also has cheap built in protection against loading a stub IOS - if an IOS only has 3 contents it loads IOS35 instead).

    Good point. Hadn't thought of that.


    I'm about to leave for the weekend, but I'll try installing a stub 249 later. [​IMG]

    Sorting... digging deeper:

    I noticed some thing about the way PostLoader sorts. In the meta files the is 2 numbers seperated by a semicolon. I think this is new or it's a bug.

    Example:
    6;0

    This adds a little load up time as my channels/apps show in alphabetical order for a sec or two, then change to my designated sort order. The old way (with just one number), was a lot faster and better in my opinion. They show instantly when their like this:

    Hadn't noticed a beta 9...just quickly tested and cert.sys is no longer needed. [​IMG]

    It gives a "no titles found, rebuild cache!" mention now just before loading the channels, though. It still shows them, but the first page can get garbled results. For example, 1080 snowboarding shows up fine, but a couple games on the right (or on the line below) show a part of the image of 1080's image in the image. I even have driift mania showing traces of 1080 snowboarding, castlevania and Dr Mario (all parts of images that proceed driift mania). If you highlight the image, it shows the proper pic, though. And on the homebrew page, everything is still fine.

    It is ok... first is the index for ordering, second is the hiding the hb. This is not related the speed... can be the overlay message that say "Loading app..."

    Codes are working from SD, USB and NAND in Emulated Nand (Sweet!). Not only that... what ever you changed has everything loading faster then I've seen it yet. Great work. Retuning from a vc/ww game brings be back to the emualted nand screen fast without a pop up scanning the cache.

    Icons are showing up good. I'm still in the process of adding them for my vc/ww channels yet so this is an incomplete test for me. However the ones I do have are working as expected.

    I'll test from uneek here in a minute, I'm making pancakes for the family...So far it's the start of a good day...Thank you stfour.

    This is great [​IMG]

    It still needs gc pad support imho to really replace the hbc, if you start this up as a fresh install with a gc pad you're left looking at the select sd/usb for postloader files screen.

    At the rate this is coming on I think it's gonna soon be the popular choice for most people and once wiiload is added a lot more too [​IMG]
