Wii64 v1.1 (Beta) (N64 emu for GC)

Wii64 is a port of the popular multi-OS N64 emulator, Mupen64, to the Nintendo Wii and Gamecube through the libOGC library. The emulator uses dynamic recompilation of the N64 machine code to PowerPC machine code and full hardware accelerated graphics to achieve (mostly) full speed emulation. Currently the emulator is in beta stage and can run many N64 ROMs at full speed in most cases.

ScummVM v1.0.0 (GC misc)

ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

Some of the adventures ScummVM supports include Adventure Soft’s Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2; Revolution’s Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; Wyrmkeep’s Inherit the Earth; Coktel Vision’s Gobliiins; Westwood Studios’ The Legend of Kyrandia and games based on LucasArts’ SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more. You can find a thorough list with details on which games are supported and how well on the compatibility page. ScummVM is continually improving, so check back often.

DevkitPPC (Release 18) (GC misc)

devkitPPC is a port of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) and includes a C (gcc) and C++ compiler (g++), a debugger (gdb) and associated utilities, with the architecture “powerpc-eabi”. It also includes standard C libraries based on newlib, which is specifically designed for embedded systems. Compilers and libraries are also included for the MN10200, the Matsushita (Panasonic) chip used in the Wii DVD controller. It is designed to be used in conjunction with libogc, a collection of Wii-specific low-level libraries.

Instructions for setting up the system are available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. Additional information and download links can be found at the devkitPro website.


Update gcc to 4.4.1
Update newlib to 1.17.1 – please note this is not an official newlib release, just a snapshot we used to obtain some requested functions.
Update to gdb 7.0
wiiload is now version 0.5, this will require the latest version of the homebrew channel in order to upload code.
filesystem IO now defaults to unbuffered meaning that the full length requested on read/write is passed to the devoptab pseudo device drivers.
The powerpc-gekko prefix has now been replaced with the more standard powerpc-eabi, this will allow portable autotools based libraries to build OOB for devkitPPC. Users of the template projects will be unaffected.
