    Hi all!

    Then, i want to start to coding homebrew on Wii, then, suppose that:

    I'm a TOTAL NOOB, i don't know ANY languages of coding, i CAN'T COMPILE ANY emulator or library. Then, to start coding on Wii, what i need to know and to have, and WHERE can i learn that?

    Thanks, SmileMan.

    Plenty of great tutorials over at CodeMii. From basic environment setup to first coding and upwards from there...

    Good luck

    CodeMii tutorials start right at the basics, he'll explain a FEW C codes and run through them with you, then he'll help you reproduce it step by step. To do what's in those tutorials you don't need ANYTHING other than basic understanding of the english language and devkitpro.

    While you could use those tutorials to learn to code for the Wii as Kashin said, C and C++ are more difficult languages for beginners to start off with. If you want to get a good programming base (that is, learning loops, basic logic, etc etc that can then be applied to pretty much any language), you should start off with C# or Java. These two languages (especially Java) have "trash collectors" that automatically handle allocation/de-allocation of memory. In C/C++ this isn't the case, and you have to handle your own memory, which can be a daunting task. Just my 2 cents [​IMG]
