    The goal of this project is to make a stable USB-Loader, based on the official one from Waninkoko, with many Features like Cheating,
    Language Selecting, and much more... . It's Open-Source, so everybody can try to contribute something. The Thanks goes to waninkoko,
    kwiirk, Hungyip84, fishears, nIxx, usptactical, Sorg, WiiPower, Forsaekn and many more!!! (Sorry if I forgot someone).
    Thanks to all of them for spending time, and work so hard for this [​IMG]!!!

    Downloads:

    V7.4 including source (version based on 1.5 - made by hungyip84 (19/04/09 )[​IMG]
    -Added two new options (I think it's a lot, sorry): wconsole_coords and wcovers_coords
    This two options are similar to console_coords and covers_coords, except that these two options are used when the loader is in widescreen mode.
    -Fixed some minor bugs
    -Re-factored some of the codes (should not affect anything, but might introduce new bugs)
    -Might be there is something more. I will let you to figure it out.

    V7.3 (version based on 1.5 - made by hungyip84 (17/04/09 )
    -Added Force Pal50, Pal60 and Force NTSC
    -Added VIDTV Patch (It was always patched for previous loaders, but now I added that as option in setting menu

    V7.2 (version based on 1.4 - made by hungyip84 (17/04/09 )
    Links says V7. but it's V7.2
    -Now the loader would detect widescreen automatically. You could still use the "widescreen" config,
    but you could just delete this config option and let the loade to pick for you.
    -The loader would download the correct widescreen covert art for you into wimages_path if you are in widescreen mode.
    So you don't have to resize yourself now =)


    V7.1 (version based on 1.1 - made by hungyip84 (17/04/09 )
    V7.1 (version based on 1.4 - made by hungyip84 (17/04/09 )
    -auto resize is removed to fix the install bug.
    -added wimage_path option. This is the path that you put your widescreen background and widescreen cover art to. (default is SD:/wimages/)
    -also included, the japanese game fix by Narolez as well (Thanks Narolez!) Please let Hungyip84 know if ocarina is really disabled with it is turned off.
    Notes: when you have widescreen turned on, the downloaded cover art would not get auto-resized, you need to resize yourself. Sorry about that.

    V7 official (version based on 1.1 and 1.4 included - made by hungyip84 (16/04/09 )
    -A lot of bug fixes
    -added widescreen option. (If you use widescreen, please set layout to ultimatew or simple delete the layout config)
    -ultimate2 layout has been changed to fit new background, it is also the default layout now.
    -Added new ultimatew layout (for default widescreen, which is the default layout when you enable widescreen)
    Source
    In order to compile the source, you need to add this library and add to libogc folder:
    http://melpo.googlecode.com/files/FreeImage-Wii.zip

    V7beta3 (based on waninkokos 1.4 Loader) - made by hungyip84 (15/04/09 )
    -just bugs fixed.
    -no widescreen support, yet. Will be in next or overnext version.
    -Background with new button mapping is at the bottom of this post.


    V7beta2 (based on waninkokos 1.4 Loader) - made by hungyip84 (15/04/09 )
    -Now simple option allow only 0, 1 or 2 (0 is normal, 1 is remove install and uninstall option, 2 is remove uninstall option)
    -Also, if you set simple = 1, the hdd information would be hidden
    -savesettings is set to default by 0 now (instead of 1)
    -functionality of button 1 and 2 is removed. Hungyip84 might add this back as a config option in future release (depends on the feedback)
    -language, video and ocarina option is removed from the game selection screen (they are in the setting screen now)

    in titles.txt, you can set access level by something like this:

    RMCE = Mario Kart = 1
    there is one minor bug that I found. If you boot game from setting menu, the auto-save would not work (i will fix it in V7 final)
    FIXED: in the setting pages there are some bug. Don't play with the saving page yet. I made some change and screwed that up. I will fix it tomorrow.


    V6.7 (both 1.1 and 1.4 included) - made by hungyip84/forsaekn (14/04/09 )

    -Now savings would be saved to SD card instead (in the same directory as your boot.dol) (Thanks for oggzee's work)
    -Now the loader would load config.txt and titles.txt from the boot.dol directory instead of (SD:/apps/usbloader), so you can have multiple loaders with different config.
    -Added config option "max_characters". Default is set to "max_characters = 37", this option allow you to edit the number of characters being displayed per line.
    Source


    V6Final (both 1.1 and 1.4 included) - made by hungyip84/forsaekn (13/04/09 )
    Changes:

    -Added config option (ocarina, video, language, savesettings, entrylines, download)
    -For ocarina, video, language, the loader would use the saved settings if saved settings are detected.
    -savesettings is the option to save the (ocarina, video and language) settings into the game.
    -entrylines is the number of entry lines displayed on the screen.
    -download = 0 would disable the download boxart feature. download = 1 would turn it on (default is off)
    The image reload bug should also be fixed in this version. Please let us know if it works.
    Source

    Will try this out after LOST is over


    looks good though.

    Any chance this can be made into a channel or something? so we dont have to go through homebrew channel each time to run it?

    Love it, was just thinking how nice white back/black text would be. And thanks for making this a unique thread, the other one is... chaos.

    No, I won't tell you anything about wad making! Use the wadder or read, read, read...
    this was said several times. the USB Loader is under heavy development in every corner.
    First all bugs should get fixed in the dols then we can talk about channels.

    As for this release I don't even know if it works correctly.
    I just took some snippets of code and put them anywhere in a source.

    Anywhere = I don't know if it's the right place cos I'm no coder.

    There won't be a channel for this. at least not now!
    Stop asking for it, please.


    It's so great... nobody gives any positive feedback, but wants a channel....
