Here are some more previews of backgrounds you'll see in ES. I'm gathering up some nice HD backgrounds.GCW-Zero GamesGCW-Zero AppsGCW-Zero Ports
And, some more emulator backgrounds.
EDIT: Maybe I'm just being impatient, but I may ask for a third person to join this endeavor.
I'm working on the theme and XML files, like I've said before, and com64 takes care of the source code.
I haven't heard from him, and the current source I have is the one that he posted. (His schedule has been busy.)
I'd like to get this released this month, if possible, and therefore may need an extra hand.
All that we have left to implement is a pop-up keyboard for metadata editing, and the metadata scraper itself. Then, fix a few details, and we're good to go.
Everything that has been discussed lately on here has to do with XML, which is progressing fast. But the source code has remained untouched, and so I'm hoping to find some extra help on that end in com64's absence.
Com64 mentioned using this for the metadata scraper, or writing the scraper function in c++: http://boards.dingoonity.org/gcw-development/qt-4-8-5-for-gcw-zero/
