Most of the homebrew on switch uses + to exit I modded FTPD to do that too.
My first button press was always + so I fixed that for my self.
If you want to use it your self you can grab a copy form the download link below.
Just something to check what extra things are installed on your switch.
Before making this I did’t know that I have Sys-FTPD installed 😀
But its still in Dev fase need to find out how to write better to a txt. My methode works and it doesnt work. Get output but not the correct 😀
Got it working by cheating in the code….
But it works.. SysCheck.txt gets created and holds the right information
Added ; so you could load it in as a csv..
Plus some self promotion, and the credits will be added soon.
Need to check this firs 😀 sorry guys
Will not release this at this moment because of:
Since Atmosphère 0.10.1 changed the folders for these programs.
Atmosphere will move them at start up so the user will not notice.
So its not anymore in titles like in 0.9.4 but in contents,
I need to rewrite the checks code for 0.10.0 this is a easy fix but still something to do.
I like uLaunch a lot it suppresses a lot of warnings.
(so no accedently update to 9.1.0 Like i did when I was on 8…)
Its a bit slower then the normal dashboard but i get used to that.
What I miss is quick scroll action or so like: 10 apps in once if you press up
This way I can access the ftp app easy.
But a quick acess button on top is also sweet.
So that is what i made if you want My modded version of uLaunch 0.2 follow the link.
Install same way as for uLaunch, in Atmosphere > titles folder. (not for Atmosphère 0.10.1 XorTroll is still working on it.) I also have a Amiibo button for quick access.
Next I could try making it more dynamic so you could load 2 custom apps of choose.
Skinners can move the icons if they use ftp_icon amiibo_icon in the json file:
Also there is a bug in my version for the album it will load homebrew menu in applet mode.
But i guess this is part fault in the way I load the apps.
Need to investigate that more “more research is needed”.
Going to try and see what happens if i load album from a menu icon.
my guts says it will load hbmenu but we will see.
I din’t expect to write homebrew for my Switch this early but it happen quite fast.
Have set a goal for my self to make some homebrew for al my modded consoles.
So I found my self installing DevKitPro on my OSX 10.14.6 Mac.
The installation was not that easy, but in the end I got the example files compiled.
Look at that nice build log:
What would borat say?
Just need to install everything by pacman -Sy ….
Check this pastbin to check what i have installed:
So after that, it was time for some “hello world” testing.
is it not a beauty 😀
Real “Hello World” screenshot (made in Vakantie park Aqua Delta I was bored)
After a few hours of copy and past work.
I made a hello world combining audio sdl and time example:
Used some of my ownmusicBartclub: music for the mind (freak sounds)
“Music for the Mind aka Helloween”
Now after some more googling and searching and I found a few homebrew sources to compile.
But sadly there where some broken Makefiles and because
I just started my journey into Switch develpement these things made my progress halt.
But in the end i made a nice small demo in SDL 2 to get me started.
I wanted graphics in my demo so i guessed I needed to learn some SDL2
Made a Icon 😀 for it
Here is a 30 second preview captured by the Switch of the Demo:
Like i said it’s just a few examples thrown together.
Audio SDL2 and SDL2 PNG example (not include in switch example pack link below)
And my own music again Electragazan sounds a bit 8 bit (a bit) 🙂
