    3DSXLauncher Loader v.1.1

    3DSXLauncher Loader is a CIA forwarder for 3DSX homebrews. It means you can "convert" a 3DSX homebrew to a CIA ones (in reality it's not converted but it's just executed with a modified version of hblauncher_loader by yellows8).​

    How to use

    1) Optional: Customize banner, icon and SFX sound in files folder
    2) Exec the bat file and follow the on screen instructions
    3) Place the pl folder from the result of the process in the root of SD
    4) Install the resulting CIA file​

    Credits

    yellows8 for hblauncher_loader: all the work is from him basically for loader part.
    smealum for 3ds_hb_menu: all the work is from him basically for launcher part.​

    Don't know if makerom and bannertool for linux are available. If so, i can easily convert the batch file to a bash one.

    Yeah as i said, at the moment they probably won't work (or barely work) since descriptors will not be parsed and rules will not be applied.
    I'm thinking on possible solutions for this but at the moment, it's just for simple homebrews.

    bannertool.exe is compiled as a 64-bit application for some reason. You'll need to get a 32-bit version of bannertool.
