    maybe like sakura a in built media player and a calendar on the top screen.
    favorites would be nice and maybe they can make a thingy that you can see what you played last time and what apps you have in a special map on your micro sd?
    i just know that TC will make it greate maybe it will take a while but i can wait [​IMG]
    GO TC

    Favourite icons on main screen, that the one thing I want most.
    Because it beats having to go through a long list each time, or multiple folders, and autoboot doesn't work when you're playing multiple games.

    Actually, I was the one who brought it up on their forums, they really liked it.

    i loved this feature
    When you turn on your Nintendo DS, the R4 DS GUI will automatically boot, skipping the main DS menu (except the health and safety screen, unless your DS is flashed).

    A loading screen will briefly popup on screen (less than a second) and the main menu of the R4 DS will appear.
    i always hated the ds menu and i would like this feature to be some how incorparated in to the new firmware

    You can set your Cyclo to auto boot. Go to the system prefence thingy and instead of manual bott choose auto boot.

    Like Tayuya said.
    Evo has the option allready.
    There is also a bypass homebrew or something that skips both Safety and Menu to auto load to Cart.

    That aside... The idea of a capable media player with proper playback options sounds good.

    Something similar to the Sakura would be nice. Repeating games after you hit Z would be nice. I like the whole concept of coverflow, but I believe reading that'd take way too much memory, but just having something similar to the SunOL would be nice, a big cover on the top screen.

    Because DS graphics are horrid. Not to sure what one would like to do with screen shots either...
    If you are trying to capture something in motion, it requires tremendous amount of memory that
    I don't believe the DS even has... [​IMG]
    I could also be very wrong.

    Actually TC have looked into making a screenshot-snapping feature. They say it's possible, but only for 1 screen, as the DS doesn't have enough processing power.

    I think the only way to bypass the safety menu is by flashing the DS. How could homebrew possibly bypass it if you need to run the homebrew from the Cyclo in the first place? [​IMG]

    Actually they said you can only take a screenshot of the "primary screen" ie. screen being rendered from the primary display engine.

    But, well, maybe they can figure out a way of overcoming this limitation later. We'll see.

    Also, this doesn't have any thing really to do with the GUI redesign does it. It's a totally new feature. [​IMG] Why is it in this thread?

    Well technically it has to do with the ingame GUI, because that's where the option would have to be located, so idk if it counts..

    I just want to be the first to say this.
    Err..new GUI?
    We haven't heard much info for ages, im sure its fantastic but it still seems like its in the early stages (since they are accepting ideas in a thread down there)

    Posts merged

    My idea would be the exact same. I would however take out dsorganize and pretty much implement it in cyclo itself, since some rumors have been flying around about organise possibly crashing SD cards
