CevoTools - all new application!

Printer Friendly Version

14 Jan 2011 05:56

CevoTools is my little project I've been working on for some time.

At the moment it is still a bit basic, and some things don't work as well as I'd like them to, so it isn't being released just yet. Instead, I'll give you a few screenshots.

The main features at the moment:

  • Available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X! (need Mac testers)
  • Tells you which firmware you are using, and what the latest firmware version is
  • Update button - clicking it loads the download page for the latest firmware in your default browser
  • Generates previews for skins: old GUI and new GUI are both supported (though I still need to implement the game list part of the previews)

Any questions or suggestions? Post them here and I may make changes based on your feedback before it's released!

we need an XML checker like cycloskintastic had, to make sure the skins we use will actually work, because ndsthemes doesn't check that they are done properly and if not they won't cycle/random/display proper.

fallenleader:

When you load a skin, this app already validates most of the skin.xml file to make sure it is correct (checks that all nodes are there, and that the files they refer to actually exist).

It doesn't check the colours yet (that they are valid) … but that is on the TODO list.

Someone over on the TC forums suggested that they'd like to be able to edit the config.xml file (and possibly the skin.xml file I suppose) using this, so that's something I'm looking into as well.

titen:

Could you perhaps take the cover off a different game card, and put that on the CycloDS? Just make sure you still have a dump of it first, because you won't be able to dump the game after removing the cover.

Would need to make sure there's a place cut out for the microSD card though, and I'm not sure if it will even be big enough. The chip on the cyclo tends to stick out a bit (as you already know).

If the xml editing works out, it would be nice to have a bookmark manager to use with the beta firmware (Add/remove bookmarks; change bookmark order)

Preview of what? :S

As you can see in the first post it generates previews for skins - old and new GUI. Not sure if that is what you are asking about.

I have some ideas for it:
maybe you can create a list of installed software. Like a moonshell-checker. if tis not installed the software automatically download it. It would be handy :)

Sounds good. The list would be empty to start with, but would allow you to add apps like Moonshell to the auto-download list if you wanted to.

Not something I will have time to implement in the first version though.
