    unless it possible to mod vwii boot so IT could do that, course then again, bricks, but then again somebody managed to figure out how to put in themes for vwii, safely no bricks. SO...... it could be possible, but it may be unlikely, what I mean by the whole themes is the fact somebody managed to modfi the wii menu launcher, which gave him themes, if Im reading between the lines correctly.

    Hi. if anyone is interested in porting desmume to wii u that would be cool.
    the wii u is a hd console so that would make it possible to render games in hi-res
    seriously the ds vc is unplayabe. so blurry and pixelated

    i think there is a wii version right?

    there is a wii version but it sucks and it's really slow and you have to use the wii remote as a stylus

    There should be a text file inside the VC injection format (For loadiine) that allows you to change some of the display functions.

    Of course is just a suggestion, if you actually play around with the settings, you may get better or preferred results. :unsure:

    hey guys i just got a great idea for some brew
    i just got a couple echo dots and have been integrating them with home automation IFTTT some HUE lights and getting excited about adding more lights and RGB strips to my system

    so when researching my home automation projects and lighting and voice controlling my home entertainment system i came across
    a nice little program addon for kodi that works with a philips HUE bridge to add ambilight to your TV and it gave me an idea

    (if you don't know what ambilight is the kodi addon sends commands to the hue bridge and changes the color of a hue light strip mounted behind your TV to match the prominent color on the screen)

    so i was thinking what if this addon could be ported to a wii u homebrew , or if homebrew is not possible then maybe we could find a way to get video out from the wii u to run through kodi in real time with no delay , then we could have ambilight while playing our favorite games
    the old gen 1 HUE RGB strips are cheap now so are gen 1 bridges , and there are cheap 3rd party RGB strip controllers that work directly with the HUE bridge that you can just hook up some cheap chinese RGB strip too also
    probably cost you like $60 to do with no bridge cheaper if you already have a bridge

    would be sweet to play BOTW with ambilight

    did you even read the post i never said anything about running kodi on the wii u

    i said a homebrew that will work with a phillips hue hub and a behind the TV mounted friends of hue RGB LED strip
    to send ambilight data to the HUE from the wii u so we can have ambilight when playing games on the wii u

    i said there is an addon for kodi that does this and maybe the addon could be ported or it could be built from the ground up for the wii u
    or failing that a method to get video from the wii u to play through kodi on another device
    like a fire TV

    a better save dumping app, a game dumping app that dumps to the SD card, a boot exploit ;)

    Prolly has been already made and i'm just too dumb to find it (trust me, i searched, didn't find anything yet though.)
    But, is there a app yet that can turn off the wii u gamepads screen?

    Playing a lot on tv, so it would be nice to have the screen deactivated.

    I would like to request a "multi-tasking" thing where you can have the gamepad and the tv as seperate things like a dual-monitor setup.

    Might not be possible but a screen swapper would be cool, tv goes to gamepad and vice versa...
