    How can I make Nintendo Wii U port of Sonic Generations? I don't think Unreal Engine 4 is supporting Wii U games anymore. Anyway what's the differences of making Wii U or Nintendo Switch roms and real hardware unofficial homebrew games?

    You can't make ports of games you don't have sources for. It's not as simple as just running a rom in an emulator or something
    Unofficial homebrew games are still running as « actual » games. They are not emulated. People have the sources to actually port the games just like a paid developer would, except it's just not released officially because they don't have the official rights to do so.
    So afaik, you can't make a port of Sonic Generations with just an iso of the game

    I guess will it be more simple to make replica for PC,iOS and Android on Unreal Engine 4 or 5,right than porting for any modern Nintendo game console?

    If you mean that you could make a bootleg, then I guess you could, but you just can't port it anywhere
    And at this point, you'd better make your own game than just making a worse Sonic Generations, which is already available on PC

    Oh okay? I was thinking about Sonic Generations being based on Sonic Satam season 1 episode blast from the past. Sega and Sonic Team never used that idea in Sonic Generations or any official Sonic games canon format.Bringing back Freedom Fighters.

    Unless you're capable of doing the ports yourself stop with these threads. You want a game that's on a certain console buy that console period.

    Oh okay. Well someone else insisted unofficial Nintendo Wii U port not me. Speaking of homebrew roms. I didn't start this thread anyway. It should be related to Nintendo Switch games not Nintendo Wii U games.

    simply put, are you sure you want to decompile power pc code and then recompile and adjust that for nvidia cpu code? Plus even if you could, how are you going to implement alot of things, it just isn't feasible. Even then emulation isn't as easy as you might think. i doubt the switch could even run a wii u game well with fully unlocked regulators and higher clock tables, it just aint happening

    OP if were capable of making these ports like you seem to think you can you'd be hailed as a genius. But I'll believe it when I see it.

    It's literally impossible unless you and a team of people spend years reverse engineering the game.

    If it 10% as easy as some people seem to think, we'd have ports of ALL KINDS of games on not native consoles. You'd have hundreds of games for Switch for example that were not Switch games.

    Well I would rather just make completely new game content. Some sort of scratch. Like slightly different meaning of Sonic Generations. Fanmade unofficial reboot/remake of Sonic Generations. That Sega and Sonic Team never considered before. Anyway it's 10th anniversary of Sonic Generations of pc Steam,PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS. I guess porting any homebrew game to any game console is too difficult to me. People on Sonic Retro forum won't help me with modding Sonic Generations pc version. I made even thread about that,but nobody responded here anyway. Oops my bad I started this thread. I confused you guys and myself with this thread.

    It would be Sonic Generations more inspired by Archie Sonic Comics and Sonic Satam than rehashed levels from Sonic games from Sega Genesis/Mega Drive Golden Era of nostalgic trip. I was thinking about lore/storyline script inspired by Archie Sonic Comics and Sonic Satam.
