    So, I've been working at it for a few months now, and I've managed to reverse engineer some parts of HBC and the hackmii installer!! Apparently, Team Twiizers left some symbols in the installer, so those enabled me to convert some of the code to C. The obfuscation is very elaborate, but there are some flaws, and I've managed to get HBC running in Dolphin, although it crashes sometimes and I can't get a sreenshot. I haven't been able to get very much done and I don't have much to show you, but I do have some code.Looking at HBC more, it seems awfully complicated, and I think Team Twiizers deserves some credit for their accomplishments. Well, I hope to have more soon.

    EDIT: When I get more information that could be helpful, I'll contact Waninkoko and see what he can do with it.

    EDIT 2: I got a screenshot! http://i.imgur.com/DOHff.png

    Indeed. Running HBC in Dolphin is nothing new.

    what a stupid rehtard.
    Though an openHBC would be good, it would need to be from the ground up.
    Fuck this guy and his joke

    Make your own judgements on wether the OP's claim is valid or not. But if it is true, OP why not turn your talents on some of Ninty's code? Get us the keys we need to sign our own homebrew, or help with the usb loading of GC.

    Releasing and making public any of the tricks of HBC do nothing but give ammo to Ninty to block it.

    The biggest give away that this is a fake is the low quality, INTERLACED (lol) screenshot of THBC that was merely taken from a capture card and edited into a dolphin window.

    Seriously, why in the world would dolphin output interlaced video...
