I could never find good documentation on HANS shortcuts, so I decided to document it myself! This tutorial should allow you to easily create working hans shortcuts, capable of having multiple romhacks on the SD card at once (I use them mostly for VC injected romfs hacks) Code: <shortcut> <executable>/3ds/hans/hans.3dsx</executable> <icon>/3ds/eshop.smdh</icon> <arg>-f/3ds/hans/titles/eshop.txt</arg> </shortcut> <targets selectable="false"> <title mediatype="0">0004001000020900</title> <title mediatype="0">0004001000021900</title> <title mediatype="0">0004001000022900</title> <title mediatype="0">0004001000027900</title> <title mediatype="0">0004001000028900</title> </targets> This is an example of the default eshop hans xml First things first, the main shortcut to Hans Code: <executable>/3ds/hans/hans.3dsx</executable> This is just a simple path to your hans executable, should generally always be the same, unless you're using special folders (Like with the gridlauncher HBL) Code: <icon>/3ds/eshop.smdh</icon> Path to your SMDH (Icon, basic info) For your HANS Shortcut. Code: <arg>-f/3ds/hans/titles/eshop.txt</arg> Path to the hans boot argument text your romfs for romhacks should be named the same as your text file, no additional lines in the text file are needed for custom named romfs files. (IE: neoy.romfs will load from neoy.txt) Code: <title mediatype="0">0004001000020900</title> This is the title you wish to launch, alone with the media type For Mediatype there are 3 options 0 for a NAND title (eshop, System Settings, etc) 1 for SD card titles (Most games downloaded from the eshop) 2 for Gamecart (self Explanatory) You can have multiple lines for alternate titles and locations Code: <title mediatype="1">0004001000020900</title> <title mediatype="2">0004001000021900</title> So this would first attempt to find the title on the SD card, and then move on to the game cart, should the SD title not be found. For the title string, an easy eay to grab it is the folder name of your braindump. Let's move on to the HANS title text file Code: region : 1 language : -1 clock : 0 romfs : 1 code : 1 nim_checkupdate : 1 This is a default launch text file(For USA) for a title Code: Region : 1 This is which region you'd like to launch from 0 - Japan 1 - USA 2 - Europe Code: Language : -1 This is the language in which to launch the title, there can be some conflicts with certain regions and languages that I have experienced. -1 - System Default Language 0 - Japanese Code: Clock : 0 This specifies which clockrate the game runs with 0 - 268Mhz 1 - 804Mhz Code: romfs : 1 This line specifies whether to load the default romfs in the title, or another in the root/hans folder 0 - Custom romfs, named the same as the text file 1 - Default romfs Code: code : 1 The same as the romfs argument, but with the code file 0 - custom code, named the same as the text file 1 - Default code Code: nim_checkupdate : 1 Simple firmware spoofer for the title you are launching 0 - Spoofer active 1 - Default, no spoof There are a few things I left out, such as all of the language settings, I didn't quite have the time to go through every language, heh. And if it was confusing I'll reiterate a little bit of the file structure shortcut.xml: Location - /3ds Description - Main shortcut to the hans executable with locations for the smdh, title ID, and boot arguments text file. shortcut.smdh Location - /3ds (Or somewhere else specified in the XML) Description - Icon and info for the title/romhack title.txt Location - /3ds/hans/title Description - Boot arguments for HANS when booting your title. Should be named the same as your romfs file when using romhacks. IE Neoy.romfs would have a complementary Neoy.txt in the /3ds/hans/title folder.
