    Or at least let them know by some other means. There might be IRC channels. Well, there are forums, someone made a thread about it.

    Old thread I know, but I just tested rev44 on the vWii (Wii U 5.51 firmware) after running into some oddball issues with HBC 1.1.2 (black screens when returning from homebrew randomly) and I must say this is one heck of a replacement! Works like a dream, no black screens...just awesome. I did run into an issue in which for some odd reason Mednafen cannot mount the SD card when launched from HBF but everything else works fine. Really liking this. Thanks!

    Gambia, The
    Nope, it's just that HBF looked for a different path on GC MC Slot A,than for all other supported Devices (SD, USB, DVD, GC MC Slot B), just an error/typo on my side.

    Gambia, The
    rev47 is now available. rev46 has not been announced here, so here's the ChangeLog for both:

    Code:
    //rev47:
    - build against libruntimeiospatch 1.5.3
    - rename "SD Gecko" to "SD Card Debug Log" in Settings
    - rename "Wifi Gecko" to "Wifi Debug Log" in Settings
    - only scan list of available IOS once per session
    - disable 'SD Card Gecko' by default (debug log on SD Card),
      because it's causing a MASSIVE slow down when opening an
      app's details dialog the first time in a session, when
      using a shitty class 2 or whatever SD Card
    - fixed that newly build vWii forwarder accidently was the
      same than the Wii forwarder
    - fixup BootMii (IOS) detection on Wii
    - fixup showing device icon for apps
    - add ISO0 (any version) to list of known stub IOS
      (it's a custom IOS installed by several old apps)
    - update german translation
    
    //rev46:
    - fix size and layout of device prompt in vWii builds
    - remove 'All' button from device prompt in vWii builds
    - re-enable 'SD Gecko' setting in vWii builds
    - support for Wii U Pro Controller trough FIX94's libwupc
    - support for Wii U Pro Controller in the installer
    - treat Y button on Game Cube Controller, Classic Controller
      and Wii U Pro Controller like 1 button on the Wii Remote
    - treat X button on Game Cube Controller, Classic Controller
      and Wii U Pro Controller like 2 button on the Wii Remote
    - press Z on Game Cube Controller or L Classic Controller or
      Wii U Pro Controller to open Settings menu
    - press R on Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controller to
      open External Applications menu (no unused button left for
      Game Cube Controller)
    - press ZL on the Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controller to
      open the device selection prompt (no unused button left for
      Game Cube Controller)
    - press ZR on the Classic Controller or Wii U Pro Controller to
      open the system selection prompt (no unused button left for
      Game Cube Controller) [only on Wii]
    - previously only the first controller was honoured, now all
      four are being connected, though only the first one of each
      kind (Wii Remote, Game Cube Controller or Wii U Pro Controller)
      can be used, each additional non-unique controller is ignored
    - in partition mounter replace debug_printf with xprintf
    - disable several DVD and Memory Card related functions in vWii
    - don't initialize DVD drive on start in vWii builds
    - allow 'SD Gecko' and 'Wifi Gecko' in parallel
    - update german translation
    Things left to do (no ETA):
    - fix png issue #1 (HBF crash when doing to much stuff, excessively scroll through stuff at some point the images will disappear and a bit later it will crash)
    - fix png issue #2 (not all images are properly displayed)
    - fix wiiload issue on vWii (it's crashing way more often on vWii than on Wii)
    - unify builds for Wii and vWii (IsWiiU() instead of -DVWII)
    - need unified Forwarder for Wii / vWii
    - need updated installer that embeds both Wii / vWii Full Channel Wad
    - UStealth? I don't know.
