    it could use photos from various mangas/comic books in the form of jpeg/bmp images for each page
    can this be done???

    Probably wouldn't have much quality and it could be hard to read.
    Still a nice idea anyway.

    Couldn't a high quality image be loaded, and then zoomed in on?

    Perhaps if it is supported. But it would still be kinda hard to read. You would probably have to zoom a lot. Maybe a bit less on XL models but still not that good.
    But then again, there's ppl that read manga in smartphones and some have similar sized screens, so it might not be that bad.

    in the illuminati headquar—I have said too much!
    So, perhaps a folder called "manga" that contains pg1.bmp, pg2.bmp, pg3.bmp and so on? I'll try to make something like this, because all it is is an image viewer which goes to the next image when a button is pressed.

    I probably won't make a file selection GUI, so you would need a PC(or use Sunshell) to switch between Manga.

    Plenty of books about it online and well as video tutorials, etc...
    All you really need to do to learn C is google "learning C language" and you'll have a lot already.

    How fast do you think the 3ds could download the png for one manga page? Having it download it from the internet when you switch pages would be cool!

    Also, where can you download manga as a ton of images files?

    You would need a repo for that. Not exactly easy to implement but doable depending on the image formats.
    Best way would be to check how smartphone apps do it, like for Android

    I got a prepreprealpha which loads "/comic/pg1.png" on the top screen and "/comic/pg2.png" on the touch screen. Not much, but I will work a ot on it this weekend.
    As for image downloading, that may come later, but because I am making this in LUA, the image downloading wouldn't work on Ninjhax 2.x

    Of course this is something that @Tjessx or @Rinnegatamante could make in a day, but I am a beginner so expect this to take a while to be completely finished. :shy:

    First of all, good luck! ;)

    And as if I may give a suggestion since you're doing it, having the touch screen divided into two in order to show previous page (when there's one) on the left and next page (when there's one) on the right and using the touchscreen function to change pages would be a cool feature.

    If you're planning on showing the images sideways (according to the normal screen position) to make use of the screens length, that feature might not be able to be implemented tho since you would use both screens to show two pages.

    And if any of these ideas is too much for you, just forget about it altogether :P

    I have it so that your current page is on the left(top screen), and your next page is on the right(bottom screen). I guess this means you will need both a 400x240 and a 320x240 of the same page.

    Seems good the way it is currently. There's probably a way to make the image automatically resize tho in order to avoid having to have files of different sizes of the same image.

    How would this work with the low resolution 3DS screen.
    I get smart phones, most support 1080p resolutions but the 3DS can't even do 480p.

    Maybe if it showed the top part of the page in the top screen zoomed in, and the rest on the lower screen. You could scroll down with the circle pad (to gradually see the lower part on the top) and zoom in and out with the L and R buttons to adjust the view and make the text more readable.

    Manga books is from right to left, so make an option (default of txt config file) for current page on right and next page on left.
    Perhaps you may can set all manga images 180 degrees rotate and hold your 3ds 270 degrees clockwise rotation.
