    hehe, it's a very clever GUI homebrew launcher using the same graphic as the main Wii menu page! Looks good, and semi customisable. It's nice to be able to have a little order, and be able to have multiple programs in a nice package.

    You will just have a GUI like the Wii menu.

    The point is that you can have multiple homebrews in one place to run nicely, without having to keep changing the boot.elf file each time to run something else. It's all presented well too.

    This sucks. It still requires Twilight? They need to make a version that doesn't need Twilight to load homebrew and such...

    I made a quick translation :

    Installation

    copy the boot.elf file on a SD card
    create a "homebrew" folder on the SD card's root.

    for each homebrew :

    -create a subfolder in the "homebrew" folder (8 characters max)
    -copy the .elf file in this folder and rename it boot.elf
    -[optional] To name a homebrew create a .txt file, edit it and name it with name you want
    -[optional] In order to illustrate the homebrew, create a 132x95 pixels bmp24 picture. Name it title.bmp and put it in the homebrew folder.

    How to use :

    use the NGC controller

    D-pad : select homebrew
    A : launch the homebrew
    R/L : switch page (11 homebrews per page)
    Z :


    I gonna try it soon. I still doesn't have twilight princess.
    does someone know how to run a homebrew with trucha, so without zelda ?

    it's great we don't need to swapp boot.elf each time we need to use another application.

    Exactly what I was looking for. Good progress being made. [​IMG]
    *Hmm. Well, when I put the SNES emulator on here, the saving/loading doesn't work anymore. I dunno if it's because of this launcher or if it's something else, but it just stopped working when I loaded it from this.

    I'll try again without it soon.

    Both this launcher and all homebrew I launch are black and white.

    PAL Wii.
