    This is an app for game streaming in "all devices"
    XBOne, Switch and maybe PS4 will be getting a client app.
    Developers told me not planning to bring it to past generation consoles.
    Also Rainway's twitter account tweeted today about open source for developers.

    Any developer here planning to bring Rainway to Wii U via homebrew?
    Since i know browser apps like UsendMii works very fine...
    I really want Rainway to work in Wii U

    Stuck in the PowerPC
    Open sourcing "a part" of the application's "tech"? I forsee a video decoding algorithm or something, not actually a substantial part of the code. A port is basically impossible without nearly the whole application becoming FOSS or a particularly passionate developer trying to wrap a PowerPC binary (which also doesn't exist from a cursory glance). Even if you got someone interested they'd be looking at doing it from scratch rather than a port.

    Rainway will work through browser too though won't it, would the Wii U browser not be able to offer full functionality?
