    Ast-U-Roids for the Homebrew Launcher has been updated to v2.5 and has sound now.

    I want to thank the 386 people that downloaded my previous versions of the game.

    I just realized that you can play Virtual Console games with Loadiine, so if I do an emulator, I don't think it will be a Nintendo one. If you vote for that, please tell me which emulator you want. My personal preference is the Sega Genesis. :D

    Here is the Readme -

    I am assuming this should work on all firmware version now since it is HBL compatible. Let me know if it isn't.

    It's a long story, but I always have to put the XHP logo in my releases, and why I used mine. The short version is that the XHP logo came about from making fun of THQ right before they went out of business, and frankly, that will never get old for me.

    I'm working on getting the sound added, however I don't think it will be tomorrow, but it will certainly be SOON™.

    Thanks!! Great game, looking forward to it having sound :)
    Regarding the emulator port I would wish mostly, it's N64. Because N64 injection in VC doesn't work that well... And we don't have a good vwii N64 Emu, too.

    Ok, I haven't actually tested the Virtual Console stuff yet, I only saw that it was possible, but thanks for letting me know about that.

    Not64 port (extremes) would be amazing.

    I have 51 N64 injects for loadiine and they work great, but a full emu would be incredible considering N64 had 247 releases in PAL alone.

    Edit:

    I wonder whatever happened with emulatemii / wii64 and emukidid?

    Perhaps on Gcforever they might stir up some fresh interest with the latest exploits?

    That emu had texture replacement as a feature before it vanished into vapourware.

    Right now, I would LOVE to program or port an emulator, but I am kind of waiting on help from Dimok on easily using his sound functions in the dynamic libraries instead of having to reinvent the wheel and code my own AX functions from scratch. Once he helps me with that, it will make a bunch of things much easier when I decide to program something else. I also really want to finish this project, being able to add sound, and even add a simple thing like keeping track of highscores will make this so much better. Everything I put into this program will always help in any other projects I do too.

    The NES, SNES and GBA emulators can be ported from the Wii, the ones made by Tantric and co.. It shouldn't be too hard. I just didnt see a point to invest time into it since those can be just as well be used on the vWii. The N64 emulator would mean quite a bit of work actually as that requires more advanced usage of GX2 if you want it to run smoothly but its not impossible of course.

    I'll have to check out this emulator, since it was made for the Wii, it might make it a little easier.

    Opera Mini wont let me download it, Windows Defender said it was malware. Is the 7z file dangerous?

    All it contains is the elf file, png logo, meta.xml file, and a readme file. Sounds like Nintendo made a payment to Microsoft ...

    I don't see how any signature in the elf file would even pop positive for a virus.

    How can anyone think that a file meant to run on the Wii U and not even on your PC is a virus? Sorry, just boggles my mind ...

    Thanks for the HBL ELF!
    Makes trying out new apps easier for the end user. :)
    Also, I vote for N64 Emu too, as most injections are not really fully compatible since N64 VC depends on some INI files per game which Nintendo releases within the VC emu.

    If a certain injection is compatible, then lucky you, if not then you're out of luck.
    Besides, I'd like to have the option to stretch the image to full screen for games like DK64 that support 16:9 and NOT having that damn dark image all the time. :/

    I would have to vote for a Retroarch port. With that ALOT of emulators come over. If you contact them I'm sure they would even help you with the port. They want it running on as many systems as possible.

    Since I voted for a new emulator, how about GBA? (Or VBAGX port)

    And just in case http://www.libretro.com here you go. Hands down best emulation frontend ever. It can seem a little overwhelming when you first try to learn it but once you learn it.....its great.

    There are a few people working on this, and once the ground work for it is laid out, I'll help as much as possible. Right now I had to move away from Wii U programming for a little bit and I am doing a little PC programming, I was getting frustrated with some things on the Wii U and figured a little break would clear my mind.

    If you want to know one of the PC projects, go to my Twitter.
