Task Switcher is a task management app developed by Masaru Kawamoto for his Brain. It is an app with many core fans because it is fast and uses less memory. It also has distinctive features such as UI customization, a simple scripting language, and his SDHC support on models that don't support SDHC.

Task Switcher does not have a Japanese input function, but Masaru Kawamoto has created a Japanese input application "Japanese Input" as an independent application.

Installation Instructions:

If you are using Brain for the first time, first create a Japanese font. If you want to use MS Gothic in Brain, double-click "MS UI Gothic.bat" in the "tswbrain" folder, and if you want to use Meiryo font, double-click "Meiryo UI.bat". Then a black command prompt screen will appear, so press any key to close it. Then, his two font files "jptahoma.ttc" and "entahoma.ttc" are generated in the "tswbrain\Task Switcher\fonts" folder. Your PC is now ready to go.

In addition, Meiryo is a font designed with anti-aliasing in mind, so if you use it normally in Brain, which is disabled by default, it will look ugly. After enabling anti-aliasing with reference to ResetKit and performing a soft reset, the following work will make the display somewhat cleaner.

Copy the "Task Switcher" folder in it to Brain's internal storage or SD card, not the whole "tswbrain". Then launch Task Switcher from "Additional Apps/Videos" and you'll see a small menu on the bottom left. For how to start on the 4th generation, please refer to how to start the app.

Applying Japanese patches can be done from System Font Patcher at the bottom by double-tapping an appropriate part of Task Switcher and pressing the tool mark. For models that do not support SDHC, SDHC compatibility processing is automatically performed at startup.
