    I mean the site where the "dev" who made this unholy app currently resides.
    The apps and brews there tend to be closed source.

    This thread's app being one, Wii64 is another and there are more.

    So, my wii's motor is kinda dead, and I REALLY want to play PSO online, but of course, it's doing a disk check.. and I can't actually play because.. disk check. the motor is BROKEN. I don't know what even happened to it.

    If only Devo didn't make you have the original disc...

    I HAVE the goddamn disk is the issue, I let my friend borrow my wii for a week, and then boom. Motor. Dead.

    So unbelievably pissed off, most WIIs from the original few runs have dead motors.. that's a good percentage of all wii owners.. and the gcn has been out of production for almost a decade now.. PIRACY IS NOT AN ISSUE.. 80% OF THE COMPANIES THAT WOULD "Lose profits" (which as a concept is COMPLETE bullshit) are bankrupt, defunct, or otherwise.. I.. just don't even know where to start with this.. I am NOT dumping 100+ usd that I don't have on a new wii..

    How's Devolution rate when compared to nintendont nowadays?

    I have my GCN library set up via Devolution already, with all my GCN discs verified, but it was a pain scanning them all.

    Also, doesn't nintendont have cheat support, while Devolution does not?

    It does have cheat support, my issue is that it lacks proper modem emulation..

    But if Devo didn't require a disc, then you wouldn't need a disk, making a dead motor not a problem. :P

    Nintendont is really good, has widescreen support for alot of games, and has cheat support, plus a crap ton of controller options, among other features. I strongly reccomend it. :D

    . . . Explain your reasoning of reinstating existing information please, you sound as if you know something I don't.

    Nope, just agreeing with you that the AP after all this time is still bullshit.

    What's proper modem emulation needed for, with GC games?

    The only "online" GC game I remember is PSO I & II(+)... and I heard that the private servers messed up a while back, causing many to lose their save data.

    Other than modem emulation, has nintendont made Devolution obsolete? Is Devolution better than nintendont in any other ways?

    ONE of them went down. And it, and it's owner can burn in hell (THAT IS A WHOLE OTHER CAN OF DRAMA), and I literally am using it to play pso I/II +. I'm trying to get to one of the other servers. one of the servers that doesn't have a horrible theif/liar/idiot/etc/etc as owner. (so the other two big ones)

    Aside from modem emulation. No, nintendon't has everything else.

    Devolution has xbox 360/wired controller support so there is that. Does the modem emulation apply to mario kart double dash?

    I think it might. I've not tried that.

    Give it a rest on the Anti Piracy stuff. The author has made his intentions regarding it perfectly clear and it doesn't need to be rehashed every time this thread is bumped.

    It's yin and yang. I'd venture to say that most would consider devolution to be the evil side due to its anti piracy measures.

    I have yet to see a wireless pad release for Nintendont, so Tuedjis work is not entirely obselete.

    Knowing that Wind Waker's value was at ludicrously high rates, I've found a deep appreciation for this emulator knowing that I can't just have a game whenever I want it.

    **I've been playing with Devolution all morning trying to figure out whether my console has Alzheimer's. I'm going to verify whether its the wii remote or the console that stores the handshake information.

    Hi!

    I just bought 2 of the WiiU Fight Pad wired controllers. For those of you who don't know them: They are like the Wii Classic controller but are shaped like the GameCube Controllers.

    Unfortunately the mapping of Devolution requires me to press B instead of A etc. Is there a way to change this?

    Usually I start the games from CFG USB Loader, but I can't remember how I configured that ;) It's so long ago I did it ;)

    Can anyone please point me into the right direction?

    Thanks a lot!

    Someone has asked this question to the developer at the gc-forever.com thread. You can find their discussion about it here: http://www.gc-forever.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=2479&start=84#p30845
    Apparently Homeland uses unicast communication protocol which Devolution doesn't support. If tuedj would gracefully implement it to the BBA emulation, that'd be lovely! However, it's not possible with Devolution as it stands.

    Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I've been away on holiday and only just got back. I wanted to do exactly the same thing so figured it out or rather found a post from someone who already figured it out for everyone here. If you can compile it yourself like I did following that post you can always create the latest version from the source files. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be at all. Maybe take you 30 mins. to an hour to figure it all out.

    Post back if you get stuck.
