      @crediar I'm baffled as to the disappearance to the wording "Wii U" next to "impossible is nothing" Expand

      @BrandtMackay Because I'm not working on Wii U stuff anymore. Expand

      @crediar @BrandtMackay does that mean no sneek for vWii? Nintendon't? Want to hear it from you. Expand

      @RayLLewis1 @BrandtMackay That's what it means.

      @crediar, Ah so then there was no point in releasing the alpha of Nintendon't? Damn.

    ...and nothing of value was lost.

    Seriously people, the Gamecube is a 12-year old console, you can play all of the 5 Gamecube games on the Gamecube, the Wii, PC via Dolphin and soon also smartphones (the framerates of Dolphin for Android are only increasing, they're becoming closer and closer to playable speeds) and with low Wii U sales, I can hardly see any demand for Nintendont.

    Huh, maybe he got demotivated by tueidj's "Nintendont is made of fail, stop trying to copy my work." bit. :rolleyes:

    Did he actually say that?

    Would have been better if Nintendon't was never announced in the first place esp. if it was never meant to go very far ;)

    Quadforce can only play 4 games, yet I value this addition to my Wii immensely, would love if they could be played on the Wii U, even if it very literally would be for only 4 games.

    Doesn't matter how old a console is, I still play plenty of classic NES games to this day. And to a lot of people, those "only 5" games on the GC are fantastic games that they'd love to still play on their current console. If it's possible, why is it wrong to want the ability to play these games implemented into the most current console?

    Doesn't matter.
    When the Wii U is hacked this is only a matter of time.

    I flamed him in asking him a direct question. He should wish me dead in a fire so people laugh and "like" it. Then mods can sort of play it like a joke. Instead of flaming Crediar I asked. I'd face instant lifetime ban if I wished anyone dead. Careful posting a copy of anything referencing me ts. Might want to some how hide my name from Twitter.

    Not a huge loss with a handful of gc games I'd play...that are on Wii also.

    Since the previous thread was closed for flaming, I'd thought I'd post here. Crediar denied my offer of a bounty to continue/release his work on nintendont/Wii U sneek. As this is the case, anyone who can disassemble the nintendont windwaker alpha and release it as usable code shall receive at least my contribution.

    I converted the dols to elfs and ran Nintendont, HIDtest, and Devolution through a PPC 750CL (same as wii processor) disassembler. Anyone want to figure out what the output means/does (for money)? https://anonfiles.com/file/b07e5f7e0dcb52d457f3199cead28530
    All of the LE lines can be ignored.

    Nintendon't still would have been better than DM, right? I was excited to use it on my Wii.

    Those speeds are still light years away from being playable.
    Oh well, at least Devolution works on the Wii U.

    Shame.
    Even tho I don't have a Wii U.
    It would be pretty neat but then again, me trusty GCN also still operates to this day.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ C'est la vie. The great thing about humans, is there will always be someone willing to do your job when you step down. Always someone with comparable knowledge right around the corner to pick up the torch where you dropped it. Everyone on this planet is truly unique. Nearly no one is unique enough that they can't be replaced by someone willing and capable to do what they do.

    And as such, the world keeps spinning, the sun rises in the east, and sets in the west, same as it ever was.

    Crediar replied once more to my same fundraising idea tweet.
    There's hope.

    you're an idiot. Just cuz you only liked 5 games on the GC doesn't mean that there aren't others who liked far more. And the age of the console is irrelevant. I still play my favorite NES games to this day, but oh no! Those games are over 20 years old, I must stay away! And lets not forget that Crediar made Quadforce, an application meant to play literally only 4 games, yet people (myself included) loved this homebrew work. Heck, for the right price, I would get a console that plays only one game, if that game is friggin awesome.

    The lesson here, don't have hope for anything on the internet, that way, your hopes and dreams won't get crushed.
