Newo Fox v2018.02.17 (WIP) (Wii Game)

The Wii is still alive and kickin’ just like many other abandoned systems as well. Owen, known for several Wii homebrew games, heavily posts screenshots on his Twitter account for Newo Fox.

If you are familiar with Star Fox (japanese スターフォックス, Sutā Fokkusu) you will be happy to read, that the concept is quite similar. The first public release should happen in around two weeks.

Visual Controller Test v1.00 (Wii misc)

Visual Controller Test by Mr. Reaper is a button pressing application for Wii.

Release notes:

* Added visual feedback for Wiimote and Nunchuk accelerometer readings.
* Added automatic 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio adjustment (who even uses 4:3 anymore?), so the onscreen graphics no longer look way too fat. You can also toggle the aspect ratio manually.

Priiloader v0.8.2 (Wii Application)

Priiloader is a modified version of the officially discontinued Preloader. Preloader is a small application which places itself before the System Menu. Its main feature is to directly boot the Homebrew Channel or a file you can install from a FAT device. Preloader is also able to apply memory patches the system menu to remove limitations or other things. Warning! This homebrew makes permanent changes to your Wii’s flash memory (NAND) and should be used with caution.


* Added support for open HBC
* refuse installation on WiiU(vWii) (using a dirty check from Joostin)
* added option to shutdown to a certain app
* fixed arguments stuff when booting dol/elf files
* Added magic word to force autoboot ( ‘Abra’ )

EasyRPG Player v0.5.3 (Wii Port misc)

EasyRPG Player is an open source implementation of the RPG Maker 2000/2003 engine. Get a RPG Maker 2000/2003 game and place the Player (boot.dol) in the root directory of the game (that’s where RPG_RT.exe is). The program has no file browser, each game really needs its own boot.dol!


* The Player crashes when attempting to use a healing item outside of the battle (#1221).
The last-minute “battle encounters based on terrain tag” patch in 0.5.2 contained a bug for the default case: When the terrain tag array is shorter than the current terrain ID, it defaults to true instead of false. This broke battle encounters in Vampires Dawn completely (#1218).
* A change in the logic whether characters or tiles are drawn for events resulted in a rendering error in Yume 2kki: It uses event tiles with no name. They were rendered as black boxes but must be rendered transparently instead (#1228).
* The \N[X] actor name function didn’t work correctly anymore (#1229).
* We reworked the name input scene to match the RPG_RT behaviour and only show two pages per language, e.g. Hiragana and Katakana for Japanese and Latin alphabet and ExFont for Western Europe. Unfortunately this broke a riddle in Ib, because the English translation by vgperson was auto-detected as Japanese and this made it impossible to input the solution (#1272).
* Battlers are affected by screen shake again (#1280).

mGBA v0.6.1 (GBA emu for Wii)

mGBA is a Game Boy Advance emulator written in C. The project started in April 2013 with the goal of being fast enough to run on lower end hardware than other emulators support, without sacrificing accuracy or portability. Even in the initial version, games generally play without problems. It is loosely based on the previous GBA.js emulator, although very little of GBA.js can still be seen in mGBA.
