Would it be possible to make an unofficial server to re-open the Wii Shop Channel?

Now, I do know homebrew dev like this is probably impossible, and probably useless since WAD archives exist, but I would love to have it back. I only ever had 3 things bought, and they're all VC. So I really wanna know, and there is a lot of WiiWare that I've never tried. If it is impossible, or nobody will do it, I understand. But having the channel back would probably make some people (including myself) happy. I don't have a lot of technical know-how in a lot of categories, including homebrew dev, but I feel like it wouldn't be impossible. And I wanna support a bunch of WiiWare devs, but can't, at least through WiiWare. And even my own parents miss the Shop Channel, since they wanted more VC and they found out it shut down like a month earlier.

In conclusion, I feel like it wouldn't be impossible, but people wouldn't really do it, since WiiWare and VC archives exist. But even then, maybe someone actually would do it if possible.

I don't know, I'm very interesting of reverse engineering the wii shop part, but I don't know if I'm capable x)

    You test that extension thing through a regular usb reader on your pc? Could just be a shit one. Bought one for my 3d printer and it just straight up doesn't work

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/

    The teacher just wanted to know what kind of perverted debauchery Julie was watching on the school computer instead of studying.
