    Hey there all!
    Y'know, I've had my Wii hacked for about 2-3 years now and I don't do much with it. Now lately I've been playing it more than ever because I've sold/let go of a lot of other activities in my life because of financial reasons.

    Right now I have CFG USB Loader, Wii MC for the occasional music or video, Neogamma for GC backups and considering to get DIOS MIOS as well.

    I was wondering what else I could do with my hacked Wii. Not a big fan of emulators so I can't think of a single other thing. I recall there was a "Homebrew Musts" sticky somewhere but I can't find it...

    Desert Bus is a kickass game, and it's developed by tueidj, genius creator of Riivolution and DIOS-MIOS.

    Homebrew ports/games
    Descent Wii (also by tuedj)
    GX Quake (wiimote IR perfection, also supports Scourge of Armagon and other mission packs)
    supersonicwii
    eduke32 wii (also supports mission packs)
    OpenBOR Wii
    PlasmaRaketti
    OpenTyrianWii
    NewoShooter
    SpaceShip_Omega
    bermuda
    syobon-action (troll your friends)
    Bash the Castle (the game whose concept was ripped by Angry Birds)

    APPS
    ftpii (very useful if like me you don't want to hog the SD card all the time for small file transfers)
    Wiiexplorer (great file manager_
    Savegamemanager GX
    WiiEarth
    WiiMC plus
    MPlayer (more stable than WiiMC)



    Btw, if you reconsider for the emus, you could do well to consider checking FBA, Not64, NeoCD, ScummVM, WiiDoom, ResidualVM Wii (although it's now beginning to evolve) and Genesis Plus GX...

    If you got games on discs, Gecko OS is useful (if you're a cheater ;_; )
    As stated above, SaveGame Manager GX is also useful. As you probably guessed by the name of app, it's a... well, savegame manager! Messing with the save datas was never so easy.
    And, if you consider emus, you should check ScummVM, Genesis Plus GX and Retro-arch/whatever it's called.

    No love for the practically pointless port of OpenTTD.

    Thanks a lot guys. I actually have SaveGameManager GX and forgot to mention it. Great app.

    Retroarch makes me interested in emulation because of the lack of clutter. One app for all that? Makes me wanna...

    If it's a one stop shop you're looking for, wiiflow can launch roms from a cover in a "coverflow" - using (most of) the emulators mentioned above as plugins. There's a relative amount of setting up to do but the results are well worth it. Have a look at AbdallaTerro's signature for his masterpack, and have a look on the Wii Emulation and Homebrew forum for the stickied Cover Collections for Emulators With Cover Support. Nice.

    Whenever I want to teach my wii a new trick, I just load up this
    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Browser
    And see what I can find. Loads of stuff, ready to download and install all by itself, PC free. Plus, you can check on the apps you've installed and see if they have available updates, which is pretty handy.

    Wii VNC is a great homebrew app.

    _also, someone please tell me the difference between WiiMC and WiiMC plus.

    And if you don't want to take out SD card every time you want to transfer a homebrew to wii, the FTPii can be very useful. :lol:

    FTPii was nice until I discovered WiiXplorer could do the same, and better too. I was having some limitations with FTPii back then, I don't remember now so can't tell.
