Let me start off by clarifying the name - it is an "autofill" because you don't have to edit any config.xaps or menu xap's to have your menu's filled. But it is based on the SavedGameGrid - so you need a save on your hd in order for anything to show up on the menus. I figured it was easier for ppl to edit their saves than to keep editing their xap's everytime they added/removed an item. Now thanks to Xtech - that process got even easier :) Included is his DummySaveCreator which with one click of a button will create any dummy saves needed to fully represent your hard drive's contents in the menus.
