Collecting donations for Eke-Eke, read on:


So the Nintendo Wii has been cracked to allow homebrew to run on the system without the need of a modchip and some small programs ranging from a MP3 player to a mini-distribution of Linux have surfaced. Needless to say this is a good step forward for the Nintendo Wii homebrew community.

Soon we’ll see a full fledged version of LibOGC that is compatible with the Nintendo Wii and will eventually make use of it’s special capabilities that weren’t present in GameCube mode such as the USB ports, SD Card port, WiiMote and Wifi interfaces.

With this in mind, I’m sure a lot of you would like to see our current SkeenDev emulators take advantage of these capabilities along with more such as the extra RAM and horsepower the processor puts out. Eke-Eke is one of the maintainers of the majority of our SkeenDev emulators including Genesis Plus, GnuBoyGX, Hu-Go GC, NeoPop and SMSPlus. He’s spent many of days and his free time developing and adding features to these emulators without asking for a dime.

He is also still doing this with his next major addition being the ability to play the Sega Genesis version of Virtua Racing in Genesis Plus! I’m sure a lot of you can appreciate his hard work and why not show a little of that appreciation by “donating” in this Fund Raiser for eke-eke.

Basically, he needs a Nintendo Wii to develop on. This Fund Raiser wasn’t his idea – it was mine. I just asked him if it were okay with him and he said he’d be honored if anyone could help him obtain a Nintendo Wii by donating.

So if you have a spare $2, $5 or $10 laying around and would like to contribute the to community I’m taking donations on behalf of eke-eke via PayPal to get him a Nintendo Wii. If you’re interested in helping out click below to donate!
