Talk:Homebrew Card Manager

Well, I assume this is how we're supposed to communicate on here...if not, my apologies...anyway, this looks like a handy app. If I may make a suggestion, instead of waiting for someone to create an app to add to the launcher, make it so that anyone can add any app to it they want via some sort of config/preferences interface. :) A couple programs I can think of off hand are 7-zip, maybe a ROM manager for those who are into emulation, WBFS manager, etc...these are things that individual users could be able to add/remove themselves. And before anyone freaks out, just cause someone backs up their legally obtained games to HDD or SD, it doesn't make them a pirate...there are plenty of legal reasons to make backups. >.> —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bg4m3r (talkcontribs) 06:25, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

First of all sign your posts, or I don't know who you are. Second of all, backups are not allowed here. Period. Third of all, I want the community to help out!--HUN73R /\/\. 06:34, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
I agree that it should be possible to add apps yourself, instead of having to have them "approved" by you. 7-zip portable would also be nice to have packaged in, for those who do not have a tool to extract RARs, which many homebrew comes in. Also, perhaps a small app to download and install Homebrew Browser, something most newbies do. I would offer to make said app, but I can't program. --SifJar 14:18, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
Personally, I don't have enough programming experience to make my own apps, but I am trying to expand me programming knowledge to let me do that. Do you mean downloading and installing Homebrew Browser the application? I could easily add in 7-zip Portable too.--HUN73R /\/\. 18:18, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
Yeah I mean downloading HBB from (dunno exactly where it is located, but it shouldn't be hard to find), extracting it and putting it in the apps folder, all automatically, as n00bs sometimes have difficulty getting that sort of thing setup. --SifJar 22:10, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
Hi. It's just a suggestion: something to automake the file tree... It's really noob-friendly, isn't it?X) or lazy-friendly--'...But it's only a suggestion. Sorry for my english, I'm french.--CarrotLegacy20:42, 30 December 2009 (UTC+1)
I'm not completely sure what you mean, but do you mean when you first download the program and run it the first time, it will automaticly make the apps folder and such? If so, that does sound like a good idea! Maybe I will add that into the 1.1 release!--HUN73R /\/\. 21:40, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Source and why .NET 4.0?

As the project site is stating it's licensed under the terms of the GPL, where can the source code be found? Also, why are you using .NET 4.0 which is currently still beta? I'd suggest to use .NET 3.5 or even lower for compatability reasons. I wouldn't install a beta framework just for this application. --Leathl 23:03, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
