I have an idea for a good Wii U homebrew.

    That idea for Wii U homebrew is of course, a port of PPSSPP for Wii U. I would try to port it (may be a stripped down version of the iOS or Android port at first but more extensive development makes it better) and we can finally play PSP games on Wii U. I will dump all the UMDs I have stored somewhere such as a Sonic game for the PSP and a game involving the army.

    Technically somewhere.
    I think that would be absurdly hard and maybe impossible without IOSU and proper tools for porting emulators, and we don't even have and SNES emulator yet (without counting the VC one), but someone capable might take a look at it SOON.

    We haven't a snes emulator not because iosu is lacking, but rather than there is no interest to develop emulators and you know, kernel space is enough for a emulator development.

    Because people are more interested in USB loading and backup loaders or some BS reason like that. I personally couldn't care less, emulators would be better IMO.

    The problem, is that most of us have great ideas, but hardly any of us actually know how to code :P

    I'm ok and gratefull with whatever developers release, but the lack of interesr isn't our fault, the scene has been dead when marionumber1 dissapeared, then revived for a while with the 5.3 and 5.5 kernel exploits and then dead again.

    Hey man we all appreciate your hard work, but like I said above:

    A huge majority of WiiU users can't code, sadly :(
    I want to help, but I can't learn shit, nor do I have the motivation to.

    Unless someone pays me to get back to school, and I quit my fulltime job :P

    As much as I'd like to play Project DIVA on Wii U, it just might not happen.

    That wasn't really what got to me; I can understand that viewpoint (although I still hold that anyone can learn to code). It's more the usual scene-is-dead; nobody-does-anything stuff. I dunno if I'm just tired today but it's genuinely draining. I don't really what do about the whole thing; I honestly don't even know what I'd want instead.

    (I've sat here for about 10 minutes thinking of a "what I do know..." or a "It's just..." but I got nothing. Sorry)

    Great dude. Now all we need is an IOSU exploit, then you can make it.

    Don't worry about these salty users
