HBB updated to v0.2.5b

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

24 January 2009 (v0.2.5b)

  • Keep retrying networking initialisation
  • Now shows the progress when extracting the zip files (thanks Tantric)
  • Detects the ftpii directory when using a password like ftpii_mypass
  • Keep meta.xml name when updating if it has been edited
  • Added more error checking when updating HBB, if updating fails it reverts back to the previous version
  • Media category becoming unavailable should now be fixed
  • Fixed controller screen to display accurate Dpad information

A few small things have been added to the HBB as shown above. The media category bug has finally been fixed as far as I can tell which is good news :). The extracting screen now has a progress bar thanks to Tantric and the network initialisation has been changed to keep retrying if it fails.

If you haven’t noticed some new pages on the blog I’ll point them out. The first one is HBB Development which gives you up to date information about the HBB development, features planned, bugs found, etc. You can also sign up, comment and submit bug reports. The second page is the HBB Guide which explains how things work.

Download HBB v0.2.5b or run HBB on your Wii to update.

Homebrew Browser v0.3 Development

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

The Homebrew Browser v0.3 is under development and I would like some feedback on what needs to be changed or what works well. The two main changes will be the main page which the homebrew is displayed and having a proper about page. The Main page is a rough design, the icons/text will look better.

HBB Main page
The idea of the main page is to make it as less cluttered as possible. Maybe the descriptions should be made shorter. The Emulators button would be click-able at which point all the categories would drop down and let you select which one to choose.

HBB About page
A informative page for the application.

Some Feedback questions include:
Does anything need to be changed?
Is there too much text?
Does the About page need an icon?
Is there any information missing?
Is the text describing the application long enough?
