Other users sugguested that I start a new thread for the continued life of this loader and I have decided that's a great idea! It was getting tough for people to wade through 280+ pages of information when the project at heart had been discontinued for further development by the original author. With that said, this loader would not be here at all if it weren't for hungryip's original work on the product and the ideas that came from the original thread here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?&showtopic=147085 With that said here is the information on the latest release I have made available which is 7.407, this version number is based up hungryip's 7.4 that was last released and currently is at v7 release. There were many previous releases that I'll leave behind in the old thread, but they will be available to users on my mediafire site in the Older Releases section if you'd like to look at the source. At the bottom of the "config_information.txt" file you will find all of the changes I have added to the original loader, here is the section as of 7.407: Code: #ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ-The below section added by HaTaX- # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting will tell the loader to use 3d art from the download server, additionally the artwork #ÂÂÂÂcan be sized using the settings below. When not present or set to 0, standard art will be downloaded. # 3dart = 1 # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting will allow you to set your own dimensions for coverart that is downloaded. #ÂÂÂÂThe default settings for the loader are 160x225 for standard display, and 130x225 for widescreen. #ÂÂÂÂYou may wish to change this to something like 130,224 so that the coverart can share a directory #ÂÂÂÂwith another loader. (Many other loaders require cover art resolution to be divisable by 4) # images_dl_res = 160,225 # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting is EXACTLY the same as the above one, except these settings apply to widescreen mode. # wimages_dl_res = 130,225 # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting sets where you would like the update menu to be placed.ÂÂIf you set the value to 1, #ÂÂÂÂthe auto-update screen will be located inside of the game settings menu instead of the main menu. # updateinsettings = 0 # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting allows you to set what URL is used when the auto-update is initiated, the default #ÂÂÂÂlisted below will be used when the setting is missing from your config.txt. # update_dl_url = http://home.comcast.net/~hatax/wii/ultimate_usb_dl # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting allows you to set what folder on your SD card the loader is located at so that #ÂÂÂÂthe auto-update can place the files in the correct folder.ÂÂIf not set, the default value shown #ÂÂÂÂbelow will be used by default. # update_path = SD:/apps/usbloader/ # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting will turn on background music using the file configured at the "music_path" setting. #ÂÂÂÂIf this setting is set to 0 or not present, the music.mp3 file will not be played. # music = 1 # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting will set the path to be used for the music.mp3 file to be played in the background of the menu. #ÂÂÂÂIf the setting is not present in your config.txt the setting below will be used by default. # music_path = SD:/apps/usbloader # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting allows you to set what folder in your SD card contains the titles.txt file.ÂÂIf not set #ÂÂÂÂthe value shown below will be used by default. # titles_path = SD:/apps/usbloader/ # #ÂÂÂÂThe below setting is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL. This setting is to delay the program from moving on after a cover has #ÂÂÂÂbeen downloaded. Unless you need to troubleshoot your artwork downloads, leave it absent from your config.txt or #ÂÂÂÂset it to 0. You may set this value from 0-9 in seconds to delay after "Downloading complete" is displayed. # infodelay = 0 # If you have been following along since the original thread, you should be aware I've changed the .zip file structure a little to help out new users. I have moved all of the files that go in your "SD:/apps/usbloader/" or wherever you've got it, in a folder called "\Files_To_SD-Root\apps\usbloader" in the downloaded zip file. Just copy over the needed updated files and you're set to go with the new version, or you can use the auto-update feature to download the latest release. If you are a n00b to this all, just take a look at the README.TXT file and follow the instructions inside. Basically you will take your SD card with a working setup of The Homebrew Channel and copy the files in the folder "\Files_To_SD-Root\" to your SD card's root folder. This will get you a basic configuration setup that is working well on NTSC systems, with everything ready to go for downloading. Downloading is TURNED OFF by default with the included "config.txt" file, you can toggle this setting in the file itself or from the auto-update menu inside the loader. Thank you for all the great support from the previous thread contributors, without the kind words and ideas this loader wouldn't be here today. Added since v6: 1.) Configurable update path if you don't have it in the "/apps/usbloader" so the auto-updater places it in the correct location. 2.) Configurable titles.txt path so you specify where your titles.txt file is stored if not in the application directory. 3.) When the auto-update runs it will now also update the meta.xml file to reflect the new version for those loading the application through the homebrew channel. (You'd never see this using a channel forwarder) 4.) Music support! This was taken mostly from the community with some tweaks and changes so it fits in the structure of this loader. This will allow you to put a MP3 in the same folder as the application and use it for looping background music. -=NOTICE=- This addition was the main reason for the delay of this release and it still isn't working how I like. I've noticed some popping with the looping background music, and cannot seem to get rid of it. This feature may turn to supporting OGG files or another format that decodes better then MP3s. PLEASE provide feedback if you have a MP3 that plays well with this feature. 5.) 3D Cover art downloading can now be configured via the "3dart =1" setting in your config.txt. The downloaded art can also be sized using the "images_dl_res" or "wimages_dl_res" settings in the config.txt. And after all of that, download all the files for this application here: http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=a6af63a...8eada0a1ae8665a Post your feedback and ideas here please!
