    Just created an R4 Easy Installer
    It is even easier then before just click next button
    It has nice GUI and the program is self explaining
    And can be used for updating or installing the latest(included) OS

    Wow....

    I thought extracting a rar was easy enough already.

    But maybe some people will use it.

    True but mostly all people ask what to do even they got that CD
    This installer would be even easier to use as its self explaining
    Also you get the option to automatically create Games folder/and Homebrew Folder which is some extra function

    A few tips [​IMG]

    1. "About" window doesn't seem to be able to appear on top of the main window (May be a bug on my side)

    2. Add a Back button (I like them [​IMG])

    3. Ban Comic Sans

    Also "your" should be "you're".

    Comic sans makes it look a bit noobish and personally i hate the font. But hey its your program so ultimately its your choice. Good work on this, next time a n00b asks this question ill point him to your program. =]

    "Instalation" also needs to be changed to "Installation"

    as well as "automaticly" to "automatically"

    I think installing exe file is more work than unpacking rar files with soft [​IMG]

    Most of my friends who have R4s haven't got a clue how to extract RARs...

    Excellent work. I know plenty of noobs who are clueless in this field and this program will sure come in handy.

    Thanks mate, it sure saved me a couple of breaths from explaining how to unpack a .rar, which file goes where etc. [​IMG]

    Comic sans is such a horrible font. Even as a kid, I couldn't stand it, because it looks like something made by someone who's only ever taken a brief glance at a comic book, and it fails as a regular typeface too. :/ I really don't understand why Microsoft don't just replace it with some other "fun" font, as most people wouldn't even notice, except maybe that the new font looks better somehow.

    And I've been working at schools in Japan for almost five years now, and it seems like the font of choice to many other foreign teachers (who haven't discovered BlamBot) and even some Japanese teachers of English.

    If you cant Extract a .RAR then transfer the files to your Micro SD Card or you need a Program to help you then you should be near the internet...or even a computer.

    I have uploaded new version
    Didn't add an automatic update function because then NOD32 was bugging it was a virus
    Probably because it downloads and immediately executes the update

    Wow, if people need to use this program, then they shouldn't own anything electronic or possibly related to a computer.

    Comic Sans does look kinda childish, but basically all my teachers use it for tests and so on. Powerpoint presentations...I use Comic Sans in some aspects, yes.

    http://bancomicsans.com/statistics.html - This is fake. Don't believe these guys. Really.
