    I've read the README for HomeMenuHax but I still have problems with building.

    I have DevkitPro, MinGW and Python 2.7 installed and is running CrapDows (Windows) 8.1 Pro.

    Has anyone managed to successfully compile this on Windows or should Linux be used?

    Kept telling me python3: command not found over and over, so I gave up.

    Had Python 3.5 installed

    For this, edit the makefile and replace python3 with python.

    Had tried that, didn't help.

    Tried changing python.exe to python3.exe as well, also didn't help.

    Seems like more people have had success with Linux. I didn't even try windows, just installed Ubuntu in VirtualBox. That brings a whole other level of issues though, but once you get it set up it's not bad.

    I gave up last night and uninstalled+deleted everything I had installed for this and got someone else to compile it for me instead.
