I see there's a way to group games, homebrews etc. withing a sub-folder. That folder has an icon.
Is there a way to customize that icon ?

For the moment, I only noticed that it took the same icon as the first application I gave the "homebrew" category.
if I update that "main" homebrew with a one including a new icon, the folder icon is updated too.

So, I was wondering if I could use a user defined icon without using one from an installed game/homebrew.

Hmm, what you can do is create a dummy homebrew (may only require folder + icon) using the icon as your formatted icon and set that to be the main one.

I'm guessing it will work that way

Thanks.

So it's not possible natively

I don't know how to make homebrew myself yet, I'll wait for a legal SDK.

In the meantime, I'll use the current icons

Or, I'll try to create an empty folder, that could work too !



I found this topic with few homebrew icons :

using ftp server to modify the ICON0.PNG in the homebrew folder seems enough.
I'll use this method to change the icon of one of my homebrews, that'll do the trick

Awesome, thanks for the information. I was going to do something similar when I had the chance but now I see exactly what can be done!

Also another option is to play around with the Firmware Launcher that is going around and edit the proper .rco for the specific folder your looking for. This could be done and wouldn't effect the individual games.

    I'm fortunate to have had some managers over the years who I've straight up told to go fuck themselves, and not get in trouble for it. Help that I've been on the receiving end of that as well lmao

    I luckily haven't had a boss in over 20 years, (independent contractor) but the people I do work for, it's pretty much like they my bosses, and yea some can be assholes. But there has been many jobs I've walked off and mailed they're checks back to them.

    Bosses should yell at workers for mess ups they just need to know the difference in abuse and punishment

    At my last job I (as an individual contributor, not a manager or supervisor or anything) used to be the one to tell my manager when I was traveling for work "hey I'm gonna be out of office between x and y dates, I got something on the other side of the country I'm gonna go work on"

    i have three network adapters 2 standard us ones with the ethernet and phone jack and one slimmer Japanese one with just a ethernet port. not sure if one would be faster than the other. i installed a sata adapter thing i got off temu for 3 dollars in the Japanese one thought, was surprised it actually works. but considering i got 18 games to go, gonna be a two day endeavor at this point.
