    I've been busy looking at fourms and with the IOSU (somewhat) almost here, I was just wondering if there could be a Wire3D for Wii U (with more potential since the Wii U's specs are greater than Wii's).

    That's the eventual goal, except more like Nintendo's own 3D engine, might even use the same formats.

    What 3D engine are you referring to?

    Could you clear things up? I don't have a 3DS so ... what is it?

    Thank you sir! So it's just an engine like Unreal or Cryengine that supports Windows and Wii (homebrew)?
    Sounds interesting but I haven't seen any really good 3D Wii homebrews til now or did I miss them?

    Wire3D is a Unity extension, but you still have to do some C coding to piece together the exported assets.

    Alright but in fact it's an "easy" way to develop 3D games for Wii (homebrew). That's great. And it would be even greater to have it with Wii U's hardware power as well.

    I use it, but I don't use it much. Like I say, you can export the assets, but then the hardest bit is to piece together the assets in C code, which is, in fact, a bit of a pain.

    Is that necessary to use it, I never got it working on Windows or Wii.

    yeah, I'm afraid so. Even I've never been able to tackle it! :P

    I hope the Wii U version is different. Something that doesn't rely on Unity.

    There's a Unity for Wii U, but you need to be a licensed dev to get it.

    I feel that the homebrew version would be easier than that.
