Is there anyone that can verify that there is a working GenPlus GX forwarder for the vWii for version 1.7.5? If so could you point me to the .wad? Thanks a million.

Any Vwii Wad of GenPlus GX would work since the forwarder is looking for .dol on USB or SD. The version of the app change nothing to the forwarder :)

Sorry I should have clarified a bit. I've tried several .wads I've found from various places and none seem to work. I just get a black screen when I launch the forwarder. Any ideas? I've installed several other forwarders for other apps and they work just fine so I don't think it's a cIOS issue..

Would be pretty cool if this happened to be ported to Wii U, eh?
It seems you beat me to it. I was literally just looking at GenPlus. :P
You'd probably get it done ~3 years before me, though.

Well, the only cIOS I've installed is d2x on slot 249 and 250. But isn't 58 built into the wii firmware?
It is, but as i said wii u and wii have different version ios according to some people. The ios 58 i think is the usb 2.0 support with firmware 4.3 came out for those games requiring the usb devices, likw the micorphone for animal crossing or some dance games. Just a guess to be honest. If you still have a original wii, try the same wad on it and see if it works. :P
1.7.5 RC1? Does this mean an official 1.7.5 is in the works? :blink:

Edit: Wii U controller support has been added, nice.

Yes it has wii u pro controller support as well as added frameskip and some other enhancements, just wish 32x was also added but still considered maybe. Maybe multiplayer game gear or whatever. I dunno what the "C1" means but that is the most recent version which is good. Now maybe more usb controller support like nintendon't have for ps3 and stuff. Arcade stick Golden axe! :D

Personally i think the genesis was created to port sega arcade games accuratly to home consoles Kinda like Neo geo was.

I thought RC meant "Release Candidate", the stage after beta, but before a full on release, so a full 1.7.5 release will be out shortly, and that the RetroArch core for this has been updated too (as I read in the release notes), but I'm not sure when it'll be included :P

Genesis plus engine does have 32x support but the ports to consoles don't have any. It is just as boss as kega fusion but better. So it just matter of patience. Anyway, i dunno what RC means, if it isn't official build then wouldn't it be alpha or beta or some call nightly build, who knows. But it was just updated from 1.7.4 to support Wii u pro controllers and some other enhancements like frameskip and clean up codes. So it is whatever it is. The pages show it as latest available build so i guess it is offical. No one advertise any unofficial builds as release since it guess they are not confident for consumer use but as proof of concept or testing.

It is an official build, release candidate meaning not quite beta but not quite complete, that's what the RC part means https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_release_life_cycle#Release_candidate So yes, it's an official build from Ekeeke himself.

It's not an IOS/cIOS issue. Never ever mess with the IOS other than 236 and cIOS 249-251 on vWii.

As was stated above, my only advice would be to try it on a hacked Wii or see if someone else will try it on their vWii and see the results. If it works on a Wii then it won't work on vWii. I haven't had anyone else complain of my file though and it's obviously working on my vWii. I'll check and make sure it loads correctly at some point this week and get back to you.
