Private Beta Build v0.19

Hey guys!

Here comes a minor update on the Beta (due to lack of time today, more will be done hopefully tomorrow). I hope I have fixed the most discussed issue so far: the freeze (and long wait if you have hundreds of installed games) upon VR Exp startup. Let me know if this helped to remove the freeze and long startup. This also removes the delay when switching between Themes.

Release Notes:

  1. Removed individual game thumbnails from “Profiles” category list. All profiles just use the same thumbnail. This is a temporary fix to get rid of the freeze and long pre-loading/pre-caching time upon startup. Also for some reason it removes the delay when changing theme in Customize UI menu.

  2. Upon request, added Favorite has now a yellow star, and not added has a star without color fill (removed the red star)

  3. Temporary removed the Tracking status in Sys Info (right window) as PiTool is currently not reporting this value correctly anyway. The entire Sys info tab will later on be moved to its own page in the main window and I will put some more useful stuff in the right window bar, next to quick customization.

Bundled with required PiTool version. Download link below: (same link, new folder PVRHome_Beta_v0.19). Available in compressed RAR and ZIP file:
