    The SMDH Creator


    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to share a program I've worked called the "The SMDH Creator". It's a fork version of "SMDH Creator" found here. This version of the program brings a more straightforward and simple UI, allowing people to edit .smdh files without hassle. There's also an export feature unlike the original version. The goal of this program is to encourage people to make icon packs for customizing the Homebrew launcher.

    I would like to say thanks to GEMISIS for providing the source to his project. If it weren't for him, this program would have not exist. He's the one who coded the main components to this application, I've only added on a few things to make it easier to use for everyone.

    Yes, this program hasn't been downloaded many times yet, see the VirusTotal report if you want proof this isn't a virus. It will take some time before Chrome says it's not a virus.

    Attach the .smdh file you have created for playcoin so that I can diagnose your issue

    Fonts for what?

    The logo font is Century Gothic while the preview text fonts is Segoe UI (it was the best match I could find). If anyone knows the exact font used in the homebrew launcher that would help make the preview more accurate.

    Can you add an option to put the same title, description and author to all languages?
    Or 3 options, just a copy to all besides each field.

    Hi,
    I helped design the UI for the THBL, this is a pretty useful tool. :D
    The title text is:
    Fontype: Segoe UI Regular
    Font pt: 15.95 pt
    Colour: #767676

    The description text is:
    Fontype: Segoe UI Regular
    Font pt: 10.06 pt pt
    Colour: #767676

    The version text is (the same as the description text):
    Fontype: Segoe UI Regular
    Font pt: 10.06 pt pt
    Colour: #767676​
    This is relative to the 3DS lower screen.

    I'm not too sure but I think the wave animation is reversed.
    Also can you add in an optional feature to export a makefile?

    If that's the case, it means I already got the font. I just need to change some of the color and size. I don't know what a makefile is (I'm a noob when it comes to 3DS developement), could you point me in the right direction? I might be able to add that feature.

    I don't think so. The region free launcher is built into The Homebrew Launcher unfortunately.
