Thanks. I'll try it out when I can. I hope it doesn't need DevKit Pro like an another app of the type I use.
You don't need DevKit Pro, all the stuff are embedded as resource inside the exe

QUOTE(jj-kwik @ Jan 2 2010, 12:30 AM) Does it create forwarders based on usbloadergx's source or does it create simple forwarders that only look for the .dol on the sd?
The dol is based in the usbloadergx forwarder source code, you can choose SD or USB with one combo

Oh, thanks...i've tried CustomizeMii but give me error on compile...
But this works like a charm! ^^
If you mean the ForwardMii plugin, you need to have DevkitPPC and LiboGC installed for complex forwarders.

But if this program doesn't need that, its definitely welcome

if possible, you should add the option to replace the loading screen when usb loading, or add the option to not have one at all.

also, when selecting usb, it only checks the usb. is there anyway to get it to check usb, then sd if the boot.dol isn't on the usb?

You can use DJD forwarder, not have loading screen.
At this point, I'm not sure in the benefits of maintain two different forwarders. I don't know the difference between DJD and USBGX forwarders, C not is my best skill. Maybe in the next release I use only the USBGX forwarder with the possibility of disable the loading screen and booting order.

the GX forwarder source isnt compatible of launching all apps without modifying the entry point of the forwarder via the source, well thats how ive picked it up

djdynamite123 forwarders are capable of launching most apps GX cant but of cause without splashes and without editing the entry point, which in some ways is handy for the channel maker to do a dol change rather than finding the correct enry points for seperate apps

Thanks pepxl, it can help me to understand how works one forwarder instead of making only little changes for a existing one.
You know any programming guide that help me?
The problems with the entry point are related with the error launching sdl mame with one forwarder?

sorry not really a programmer as such, im still getting to grips with devkit myself but giantpune is probably the best person to ask about entry points and what not

here a quick breakdown of what an entry point is and what needs to be done
