    Title pretty much says it all. I got extremely sick of FTP-GMX / FTPDE always requiring reboots to make hb_launcher_loader or various other titles work after using them.

    For a while I went back to the roots being FTPD but building that as a cia is just horrendous so I decided to make my own version based on FTPD but now using Steveice10's Buildtools for making it.

    2 big ones

    1. No image at the bottom screen but actual TCP info
    2. Is not crappy at whatever causes it that homebrew launcher and various other titles just hang on the Nintendo loading logo (the Nintendo 3DS animation) when launching them directly after using FTP without a reboot.

    If you only made an account on this forum to spite people then please do direct yourself to the door. That said

    1) I loosely based it on that fork, however mine still uses buildtools which is much better than building with ctrulib
    2) Running make in the current Master branch of mtheall's repo still doesn't make a cia (it is required to run "make cia" for that and in this day and age where practically everyone has CFW and uses cia's this is just a stupid coding decision)
    3) My version also doesn't support making it for a Linux client because such a feature is redundant code bloat for as far as 3ds homebrew goes.

    Edit: That said, I just now made a PR on the original ftpd that fixed point "2": https://github.com/mtheall/ftpd/pull/46

    1) I made this account like 7 years ago.
    2) I /am/ mtheall.
    3) Is it so hard to type "make cia"? 3dsx is the default because you can build it out-of-the-box with vanilla devkitARM, which doesn't include makerom and bannertool. If those get added to devkitARM's 3DS tools, then I will make cia be built by default. If I add it now, someone without makerom/bannertool will get build errors with just "make". I'm not going to add a buildtools git submodule either because wow every project does and now i have 10,000 copies of it.
    4) It's a Linux server, not client. Also, the reason it exists is because it makes for much easier debugging.

    Edit: Spoke too soon.

    Nice work. With the other FTP programs after I was done transferring I had to go to home menu, kill WIFI and then I could close the program and THEN start something else without it hanging. Glad that is no more.

    Yeah, I spoke too soon, I had that issue too. Guess it's back to taking all those steps until/if this gets sorted.

    Look I'm sorry I got on your nerves and you're a great dev whom we as a community owe a whole lot to. I and everyone here greatly appreciate your work and all that stuff. I was informed you were on #cakey recently to get the fixes for FTPD which, looking at the commit log, are all done now. I'm not going to be judging or attempting to make false assumptions here but just to express my honest feelings: I do feel like it is all too convenient that since April 9th you didn't commit anything on FTPD and just as I release FTP3DS you fix what had to be fixed.

    That all said I really see no reason for us to not get along. To actually make the quote sensible however I would like to take a moment and reply to some of your points, but please understand that I mean no negativity with it, only thought out reactions. (There is only positive and negative after all)

    1) So did I. September 12th 2009 to be exact. That said I still have way fewer messages than many other people here. Account age says little compared to account activity.
    3) I see where you're coming from with this reasoning and it makes perfect sense. This is however also why I implemented Steveice10's Buildtools (https://github.com/steveice10/buildtools) as it allows you to have and Vanilla devkitARM and a single "Make" to make 3dsx, smdh, cia, elf and a zip that has the first 3 of that. (and all of that in an /output folder)
    4) I suppose that is true. I'm not one to thoroughly debug an application (unless it's for a paying client obviously) and like to somewhat more follow the mentality of "if it works then it works and if someone has a bug report I'll look into it asap".

    I recall mtheall having a different username here than on Github, so it really doesn't surprise me
