    I've been here, WiiLi, DCemu, and a coupe other places. The general idea of "Wii hacking" seems to be a bunch of non-technical people going "Hey! Maybe we can find an exploit to run malicious unsigned code using the SD Card somehow!"
    Anyone can theorize about nothing, but I'd like to think that I'm not the only person who has opened up VC games in a hex editor and gawked at the encryption.

    Basically, where are the people with a minimal sense of technical competence or effort hanging out aside from IRC?

    I'm sure they're all too busy playing LEGAL copies of games on their new console.

    Come on, the things been out less than a week! [​IMG] Give Nintendo a short while to rake in some real profit. [​IMG]

    Plus, the Wii isn't even out in Europe yet, and we all know the best hackers are Europeans. Hehe. [​IMG]

    I doubt the people who find exploits on the Wii will be the ones hanging around English speaking message boards and open IRC chans. They'll either be proper sceners in an underground IRC bat lair, or chackers toiling in the fields of binary with their chacking scythes.

    As for Americans, I dunno - I blame that Jesus character.

    I'd like to study VC games, but I don't have my Wii yet...

    Could 2 or more people send me 2 similar games, but from different Wii consoles ?

    If you are so impatient, why don't you hack it for us... That wasn't even sarcastical, I wouldn't mind at all if you did.

    got to wait at least a year [​IMG], and asking about hacking means if they had a choice nobody here would actually pay for the games. [​IMG]

    Let me know if you find it, so far gbatemp is where it's at.

    I worry that some of the best people working on it right now are keeping secrets and starting their own modchip companies.

    All Wii hackers are in closed irc rooms and tries everything to hack the Wii.
    And they will shutup until they find a idiotproof way to hack the system.

    thats weird because most consoles had open hacking forums that actually had hackers that accomplished things eg xbox-scene xboxhacker for xbox(360), ps2-dev for ps2 and psp ect and there were many more
    the wii is weird that way
    i think i might be i doesn't have its own high traffic resources forum,wiki ect
    its at places like here where it has to fight for popularity with established scene's like gba and ds

    The wii has been out about a week [​IMG] Suprised anyones has had time to even open it yet. I know people have managed to get GCOS loaded up and managed to play the gamecube emulators using max drive pro. Not sure if gamecube games themselves would work yet. Before any wii copies can be played, someone has to work out how to rip them first.

    The only thing I'm interesting in poking is the VC, which I assure you I've done plenty.
    I just like to imagine that there are people out there with some degree of both interest and technical skill.

    I'm not impatient for hacks. I actually have little time to play video games these days [​IMG] and my DS + Zelda should keep me busy for quite a while.

    It's just frustrating that GBAtemp (and everywhere else I've seen) is giving off a gameFAQ's level of technical competence, while all those with real skill refrain from doing the "community thing. [​IMG]

    I'm not amazingly skilled myself, but like I said, someone out there has to be looking at VC games in a hex editor or packet dumper aside from myself.

    hax now would be okay, but a nice community would be far better.

    The hackers might be waiting for a decent amount of Wiis to be available so that if they **** their Wii up, they'll easily have access to another, lol.
