    Nope, but the last Wii64 update and WiiSX in general sort of came out of nowhere with no one expecting them, so you probably won't be hearing any news until its close to release. Nothing you can do but wait

    Wii64 is fast just like project64. You can try. I tried it 100% speed!

    I can't speak for WiiSX but Wii64 will likely never be able to run games stable enough or fast enough to be worth playing. Now if someone could crack open the emulator packed into the N64 Virtual Console games then we might get a decent 64 EMU on the Wii. I may be going out on a limb here but my guess is that most if not all interest in homebrew emulators for the Wii will be lost when the Wii U is released, well it may still be a major endeavor until the Wii U gets hacked.

    The guys of emulatemii are working hard on it in their free time. Just be patient. Projects are still in the pipeline.

    Really? Because last time I tried it there were multiple games that wouldn't even load and there are many other games that suffer from terrible slow down, missing graphics and more. It is possible to get more stable, smoother emulation on the Wii as has been proven with the VC games, I just don't see it happening with Wii64 in it's current form.

    Of course, it very well may be coming to the next level which will provide better gameplay/compatibility but there's really no telling in truth until it's released for public use.

    Yeah, that doesn't work. Each "emulator" in a VC game is made specifically for that game. That's why VC injects don't always work.

    Just be patient, emu_kidid is busy with DML right now, and I'm not sure about the rest of the EmulateMii team, and they all have lives too.

    Now, if only they opened up their private SVN to the public.. I wouldn't mind setting up an enviroment and compiling a few builds, but alas, it's private, and all we can do is wait.
