      I took the MIDP 1.0 setup, added key mapings for the 2, 4, 6 and 8 keys and the Menu key (keycode -23),, changed the icon size to 20×20 and set the max jar size to 0 so it wouldn’t split up books.
      Here’s my configuration file: Right click the link and save it in your TCBR folder. Click “Read Setup” on TCBR to load it. I took the MIDP 1.0 setup, added some key mapings, changed the icon size and set the max jar size to 0 so it wouldn’t split up books.

    Thank u Dennis, I’ve been anticipating this eagerly. I noticed you used the Gutenberg & not the Booksinmyphone I sent. Just to make your life easier, do u prefer one over the other? I also would like u to know your tutorials are great. Very understandable.

      In my queue list I only wrote the title not ManyBooks as I knew I could get it there or Gutenberg.I tend to favor Gutenberg as they have a larger catalog.

      There really isn’t much difference as ManyBooks just gets plain text from Gutenberg and converts it into additonal formats that Gutenberg doesn’t support. That doesn’t matter to me as I use the plain text which is what works best with TCBR.
