    Well I've got devkitpro up and running, so I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas for a new application.
    Because I have no idea what to make right now.
    I'm pretty experienced in c/c++ and I have been experimenting with some basic wii stuff over the past few days.
    Again if anyone has any ideas for something just post!

    mmmmmmmmm.....what about making a DS emulator for wii?

    mmm......what about making a golden eye remake with online play for wii?

    m,?...what about online tv stream?

    or something that can make you load mp3s from the SD and listen to them while you are on the main menu or while playing a game, kind like what the psp has?

    :/

    A Wii IRC app would be nice, you can use the internet channel to use Mitbit.com but it sucks.

    Not sure if these are impossible but how about some plugin style apps for the system menu that:

    Eject the disc if "1" is pressed.

    Switch "A" and "B" as the select button in the system menu (good for hotd:ok etc).

    Use GC pad in system menu.

    Listen to mp3's off the SD for all games.

    Mod a SNES/NES/GENESIS channel to read the contents of a disk, and if there are the relative rom directories, do a little animation/sound.
    (Just like how disk channel reads the disks)

    These could be implemented like preloader patches, or as rebooters or something?

    If not then please remake goldeneye [​IMG]

    it would be great to have a free browser for the wii. $5 for Opera is just not fair IMO, but neither is pirating it in most people's view. A homebrew one would be the perfect solution!

    replacing the bgm

    boot disc when pressing 2

    a app to remove the history from what you have done,

    a app to watch all your history data, like how much you used your wii total, how long you played game X, what game you played the most/least etc.

    How about something connecting to the Blance Board? a small set of scales to weigh yourself.

    I would love to see a comic book reader (.cbz and .cbr files). The DS one is cool but it would be neat to have them on TV.
