    Hey,

    So what i'm looking for is a hombrew (.3dsx, compatible with themehax).
    What it should do is, when you load it, it brings up the 'select a title' menu that the HBl has.
    Then, when you have selected the title, the homebrew loads... that game. Simple.

    It seems simple, but from a developer's viewpoint, it might be hard.

    Thanks for reading, if anyone's interested, please reply to this thread :)

    PS: Don't ask why I need this, it's a bit strange. (Actually, you can ask if you want :P)

    @shutterbug2000 was able to do this with the settings app so it should be possible.

    Is the code for that Open Source? I could take a look and try to replicate it.

    Erf, I forgot you use LUA...

    PS: I was looking for a way to select titles for hours. I just had to add this xaml file (.xml)...
    Code:
    <targets selectable="true">
    </targets>

    Hmmm I think something similar might be doable in lua. but it wants a Unique Title ID and i have no clue how to get that.

    SunShell has a list of the CIAs installed on the system and you can launch them IIRC, though their titles/icons are not displayed, only their IDs.

    Oh, I never tried that, so I didn't know if that actually worked. Though I suppose this uses the function System.launchCIA(), so I guess you're screwed...

    The needed code is all in the homebrew laucnher source, I wanted to make a title launcher, I just didn't get the time to yet, so probably someone does it before me.

    EDIT: see? https://gbatemp.net/threads/hbhm-the-homebrew-home-menu.397970/page-5#post-5695467

    Well, this needs to manually set the title though.

    I think making a HBL mod that instead of listing homebrew lists titles and allows to boot them is the way to go, with icon and description and all.
