MENUdo [Coffee Sabaw Demo]
« on: August 10, 2008, 10:53:37 PM »
Well, I'm just doing what the guys suggested. :P
Ill just right place it here even though I my entry is still not out. :P
If the admins doesnt like it please delete this. :)

Also I'll edit the details later. Too lazy.

Sorry for this ugly release, this is quite complicated to use also. :(
But for those who wanted to try please enjoy.

Nickname: Soulanger / Filipino Brewed
Project name : MENUdo Coffee Sabaw Demo Version
From : Philippines (lufet!)
Division : NDS APP
Original enterty : YES
Support Motion :Yes, moves similar to dpad.
In last NEO Compo this project have won in the top 10 : NO
Project description: Best way to describe it is by looking at the video. Basically it massively beautifies your Cart's gui, with an PS3 theme as a default gui. Has neat features like: sending PC2DS, DS2PC, seeing ingame footage while selecting your game, Total-convertion theme editing, etc. (This is just the demo these features are not yet implimented.  :-\ I'm not that good at describing my projects so just see it for yourself with my video. :P

Please watch the video before downloading this would introduce you to it.

Additional info:

Custom covers:
These are special type of screens that have videos or unique graphics in it.
As seen on the video.

MenuDo Assistant:
This would help you manipulate the ini easier. Like configuring what menu loads.

Sorry kinda sleepy while i was writing this.  :-\ I was really impressed by this version but it was the only stable one, sorry. :(

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyanE7Tx5fg

Notices:
Dldi before using! If you press A in a menu then loads and goes back, it means there is nothing to execute.
For beginners please download the customCovers.
If you have downloaded custom covers it could be run on default by pressing A on Games or by holding Down on autorun.

Tutorial for those who are having a hard time:

The easiest way is to download Menudo including customcovers.
Then extract all contents including customcovers to the root.
If done correctly your root would look like this:

Root:

│   gameboot.smf
│   introboot.smf
│   menudoSabaw.nds
│   system_theme.ini
│   xmblite.rar

        Apps_icon.gif
        Apps_name.gif
        backgroundcolor.gif
        BG_ribbon.gif
        bottomtheme.ini
        Gamememory0_icon.gif
        Gamememory0_name.gif
        Gamememory1_icon.gif
        Gamememory1_name.gif
        Gamememory2_icon.gif
        Gamememory2_name.gif
        Games_name.gif
        Game_icon.gif
        Photomemory_icon.gif
        Photomemory_name.gif
        Photos_name.gif
        Photo_icon.gif
        Settings0_icon.gif
        Settings0_name.gif
        Settings1_icon.gif
        Settings1_name.gif
        Settings2_icon.gif
        Settings2_name.gif
        Settings_icon.gif
        Settings_name.gif
        Videomemory_icon.gif
        Videomemory_name.gif
        Videos_name.gif
        Video_icon.gif

Now dldi the menudoSabaw.nds then run it.
If done correctly this would work. Press A on Games to view games -> halo and everlasting.


How to customize the menu.

The full customization relies on the ini.
There are two ways of editing via notepad or Menudo Assistant. This tutorial helps explain the functions.
Open up system_theme.ini. The ini is somehow similar to an html, honestly it feels like a scripting language to me.

Menu0runs   = fat:/TTMENU.nds
If you press A while on Goto Original Menu (Menu0) it would run:
fat:/TTMENU.nds

You can also change it make it to view a folder by linking  it with the folder instead.

Menu7runs   = games
When you run Menu6Runs(Games) it explores the games folder.

There are also special functions like:
gba - loads slot2
power - powers off

to use it just add it after the Menu(X)runs =
like so:
Menu8runs   = power

Misc Stuffs:

You can speed up the animation by holding the B button while navigating.

To open a file via stylus slide the name towards to the left.

You can hold the buttons in directions before you power on your ds to do autorun runs.
Ini Example:
startupUP   = fat:/TTMENU.nds
startupDOWN = games
startupLEFT = fat:/Halo_ds.nds
startupRIGHT= fat:/beup.nds
It uses the same style with the menu(X)runs.

If you can load any homebrews, try changing the ini:
//auto
//Chishm's DLDI Loader
//M3 Internal Loader
//GBAMP Internal Loader
//EZ-Flash IV (4) Internal Loader
//SuperCard Internal Loader

NDSloader = 0
the 0 variable runs auto detection.



The complexity of the customization would make it flexible.
Sorry but this demo is very unuserfriendly.  ~sm-31.gif~
Make sure you extract all to root then dldi. I just noticed this version is very complicated but still I Hope you guys would enjoy.  ::sm-02::
