MegaZeuX Wii v2.92b (Wii misc)

MegaZeux (or MZX) is a game creation system (GCS) initially released in late 1994 by Alexis Janson. MegaZeux is heavily inspired by Tim Sweeney’s ZZT. Like ZZT, MZX was originally released as shareware and the world editor portion of the program was included for free, allowing third parties to create their own worlds without even registering. Wii port is courtesy of Lachesis.

MZX is officially supported on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Android, Nintendo DS, 3DS, Wii, Switch, and the PSP. Older ports exist for AmigaOS 4, GP2X, and Pandora. MZX has also been ported to other platforms such as OpenSolaris, HaikuOS, and the Sega Dreamcast.

Welcome to Shakedown: Hawaii, Vblank Entertainment‘s latest open world adventure. Build a “legitimate” corporation by completing open world missions, acquiring businesses, sabotaging competitors, “rezoning” land, and shaking down shops for protection money.

You are the CEO, and questionable subsidiaries, misleading ads, fine print, hidden service fees, and marketing spin are your tools of choice. Shakedown: Hawaii parodies big business, and the most absurd business practices that go alongside.

From the boardroom to the streets, build your corporate empire and destroy the competition.

ledHeadWii v1.1 (Wii misc)

ledHeadWii is based on Peter Hirschberg‘s LedHEAD (classic electronic LED handled game simulator) source code.

LEDhead is a program that simulates the classic electronic LED (light emitting diode) based handheld games of the 70’s. Now you can relive the excitement of your childhood years all over again! All games feature fully authentic sound-effects, and faithfully replicate the game play of the originals.

Rather than using proprietary code or “ROM images”, as is the case with emulators, LEDhead uses simple but extremely clever imitation to ensure excruciating faithfulness to the games you grew up with. Endless hours of painstaking effort have gone into ensuring the accuracy of each of these games.

CleanRip v2.2.2 (Wii and GC Application)

CleanRip by emu_kidid is a Gamecube and Wii optical disc backup tool for the Nintendo Wii.

Changes:

* Option to remember settings for an entire ripping session
* Enable 32MHz mode on GameCube for slightly faster rips
* ETA and read speed is now based on the data read in the last second
* Tidy up the main read loop
* XenoGC patching workaround
