    For a while, now, I haven't been seeing anything new to get excited about. Most of the threads are getting lengthy with random off-topic garbage.

    Has anyone been working on any new homebrew apps or games? ...or has everyone just become bored with the Wii U scene?


    :sad:

    It's just that nobody gives a damn about anything other then piracy.

    Well you got the homebrew launcher now which runs flawlessy.
    But not sure if it plays games. You can load loadiine with it.

    If I ever get around to making an SD card access plugin for Unity Wii U (which is on my to-do list anyway), I might take a look into this...

    there is a lack of input here , there is things in the works , but they are under wraps until theres something to shout about ... but im only speaking of the few i know , i guess others are either not bothering or keeping there work quiet too... i know that if you post a WIP or a thread on your aims , they get mauled by all the fuckwits around lately so i guess people tend to post either elsewhere or not at all.

    What I'm truly waiting for is a offline/install method of an exploit like the Homebrew channel. I won't have internet for long, it may be going out any second now.

    If people would start looking for secondary expliots ad not worry about piracy we would have like 3 expliots by now that are offline.

    I don't understand why you are being sarcastic about it.

    People are working on things, but it takes time, and trying to post any WIP thread would just get too many bs posts, or it would end up on page 5 of the forums within a day or two. I've released two of my apps with HBL compatible upgrades, but you'd have to look several pages deep to find them by now. I wish they'd create a whole new section just for Loadiine, then maybe some WIP threads could be posted in this section.

    I totally understand that there are "things in the works", and the WiiU has come a long way over the last year. But waiting "until theres something to shout about" (e.g. IOSU Exploit), doesn't help the scene grow, does it? For the most part, I'd consider myself a patient person, but I find the WiiU homebrew development scene strangely slow. IDK... Maybe it's just me. Sorry for ranting, and thanks for the feedback.

    It's called self hosting, where you host the files either on android or on a PC, through a Wifi connection, regardless whether you have an internet connection or not.

    Well, all of my android devices are crap on space. It's like none of them can hold like a KB of anything. What's the laptop procedure.

    Even the xbone has dosbox, albeit very slow due to Microsoft restrictions.
