    I want to take screen shots of homebrew apps such as Wii Mod and SysCheck.
    I have USB Gecko.

    Can someone tell me how to do it?
    [EDIT]
    I found video capture cable, so i'll try it.

    thanks

    As far as I know Wiird and Gecko Dot Net don't support taking screenshots of homebrew. You can take screenshots from games and the system menu, though. However you can request an internal screenshot function of open source homebrew apps you wish to take screenshots from.

    Using a USB Gecko on homebrew is different than using it with an app like WiiRD. AFAIK, there is no way to take a screenshot with a USB Gecko in homebrew.

    It all depends on the app, like the others have said.

    I know on some apps (SaveGame Manager GX, WiiXplorer, USB Loader GX, and the Homebrew Channel itself), you plug in the nunchuk and press Z + C...

    Yea some apps include a screenshot feature, like hbc, wiiflow and what AskaLangly said. Theoretically its possible via USB Gecko as well, but dont ask me for details how to get it to work :P
