Amju Super Cool Pool (WIP) (Wii Game)

Great games, regardless on which systems, are always a pleasure. Amju Super Cool Pool by Jason Colman is for sure a Wii game you can look forward to. This game uses its very own library named amjulib, which is a cross-platform game library the author has been working on for pretty much some time. The port is still in progress, but the first screenshots were brought to the public today. Keep an eye on this sweet project!

Playstats v1.1 (Wii Application)

Playstats by chris is a utility to analyse the play history on the Wii (shown under Today’s Accomplishments on the Wii Message Board). It shows such stats for each game/channel, including total time played, total number of times played, average time played, first and last time played.

Recent updates to the Nintendo Channel now allow it to do much the same thing, often with more stability. However, unlike Playstats it does not display all third party titles and does not give you as much analysis.


* Fixed some of the bugs causing strange results for some people.
* Added sanity checks to work around the remaining bugs.
* Added Unicode support.
* Added ability to log stats to the SD card.

* There are now four different kinds of wooden crates (the differences are only cosmetic).

GCMM MOD (R11) (Application)

PabloACZ has released GCMM r11 MOD, a modification of the original GCMM found at WiiBrew. It’s a memory card manager for Wii and/or GameCube.


SDGetFileList() function in sdsupp.c updated to reflect the changes in DevKitPPC/libogc from the last three years (diropen, dirnext and dirclose commands were replaced with opendir, readdir and closedir, respectively).
Modified the MountCard() function in mcard.c to perform a probe on the GC Memory Card slot, to make sure it was mounted properly.
Improved the compatibility with GCS/SAV files with the patch posted by jcwitzel in December 2009.
The Makefiles were modified to include the zlib in the libraries section. It seems that the latest libFreeType PPC port needs it to work.
*Hopefully* Added compatibility with Official GameCube Memory Cards (see this). According to a friend of mine, it works with a 256 blocks Memory Card.
Compiled with DevKitPPC r24, libogc 1.8.8, libfat 1.0.10 and libFreetype 2.4.2.

Thanks to stomp_442 for the news.
