So click that network button in the bottom right corner of the home menu and go discuss and vote on some junk. The actual site (the version you get when you visit it with a regular web browser) has gotten a few small updates tonight too.

32 included and 22 excluded adding up to a total of 55 Wii homebrew projects. I have a tendency to start random things and then quickly abandon them when I lose interest. But I’m going to try and stick to these 55 projects.

15 Wii homebrew updates

November 2, 2012

Wii Chatter’s keyboard defaults to lowercase and has a caps lock button. Avoidance and Hero City 2 (the nightmare mode) both have added leaderboards that work just like Cherophobe’s does. Winter’s End is a bit more efficient (not that it makes any difference).

All of them have a new home menu. I rewrote a lot of it and added and changed a lot in the process.

The network browser thing has a built in on screen keyboard (just like the one in Wii Chatter). So now you can use it to post things on people’s user pages and in the future you will be able to send private messages and even register an account without needing to actually visit the site.

There is also a little news window next to the main home menu. So you will be able to find out if you are using an outdated version or if something cool has happened without needing to go to the network section of the home menu.

The new sprite sheet / texture it uses is half the size it was previously (which was already smaller than it was not too long ago) so that’s good for technical reasons. The buttons and things are designed in a way that allows me to put them closer together and thus fit more on screen. I’ve even got it setup so I can use different colors of text. I’m not crazy about the way it all actually looks though. I’ll probably change the color pallet later and maybe make it customizable.

Avoidance v1.3
Cherophobe v1.2
GoodbyeWorld v1.3
GravityGlide v1.4
HeroCity2 v1.4
MazeGenerator v1.5
PineappleApocalypseRPG v1.3
RevoltOfTheBinaryCouriers v1.3
SketchFight v0.4
ThreePointO v1.3
UFORacer v3.5
WeAreNowhere v0.4
WiiChatter v0.2
WiiExhibit v0.4
WintersEnd v1.2


Wii homebrew updates

August 27, 2012

Goodbye World v1.2
Gravity Glide v1.3
Maze Generator v1.4
Sketch Fight v0.3
Three Point O v1.2
We Are Nowhere v0.3

The above six homebrew releases feature an updated home menu / dashboard. The network page/menu/section/whatever is even better than it was in the past few things that I posted. It’s scrollable (use the directional pad), text is spaced out more vertically and text can be broken up into multiple bubbles.

The most important change is that the network section of the home menu has gained support for buttons that link to other pages. It still isn’t being put to much use but now I can make updates on the server side to add things like polls, forum browsing and an RSS reader.

It will always be specialized for connecting my Wii homebrew to PlatonicRobot.com (it will never be HTML compliant) but it has become and will continue to become effectively a functional web browser.

Several Wii homebrew updates

December 29, 2011

Video provided by Cid2Mizard from NintendoMax.

Here are updated builds of three seemingly randomly selected pieces of homebrew that I had made for Wii. Three Point O has been significantly overhauled and no longer becomes distorted when you look up or down. Cubicle Shooter and Gravity Glide are more minor updates. I’ve fixed a problem with shooting well looking up or down and aiming away from the center of the screen in Cubicle Shooter. In Gravity Glide the background music now plays more correctly.

Three Point O v1.1
Cubicle Shooter v0.3
Gravity Glide v1.2

It was my plan to organize (most of them are scattered around in different places) and fix up (a lot of them currently won’t compile properly for a verity of reasons) everything I had previously released for Wii and then release new versions of all of them along with the source code (like I did recently with my PS3 stuff) by the end of December. But Laziness and the holidays kept me from being productive and then more time was wasted because IMG_Load had inexplicably stopped working for me on Wii (I eventually gave up trying to figure out why and was able to put together a suitable alternative with the help of the always awesome LodePNG). It is still something I want to do but with only two days remaining (and approximately 40 programs) that obviously isn’t going to happen in the time frame I had originally hoped for.

So anyways you can expect to see at least one update a day and a source code dump by the end of January.

On a vaguely related note, Does anyone know what the deal is with 8bit Collective? It’s where I got a lot of the music I use in my games, the address that I give in the credits (a lot of artists don’t have their own personal sites) and a place that I would love to be able to go back to for finding new and great music to use in some of my currently mute games. But the site seems to have been down for at least a week now. Are they just under maintenance or switching servers or something or is the site gone for good?
