    I have the game on my pc, and noticed in the manual it says you can play it via homebrew channel on the Wii as long as you have 420mb of free space on your sd card. How exactly do I make it work with the homebrew channel? I don't see any file types I recognize.

    SEGA issued a cease and desist. Links to it aren't allowed on GBAtemp.

    It's possible that we'll see a Wii version soon.

    Trust me, considering how sane and little the SoR fandom is, one would not want to enrage the beast of Satan that is the Sonic fandom. That'd be akin to a suicide mission.

    I'd guess if it does get ported then in theory just the wii needed files (dol/elf etc) would get hosted and then you'd just need to supply the rest of the working files? ..that way nothing illegal is distributed (the same as how all emulators, scummvm etc are on the wii).

    Don't suppose there's any news on this? I'm not really into the Xbox homebrew scene these days but I see they've got a port of this game now. [​IMG] It's effectively just a launcher to run the PC code which I don't think the Wii is able to do so I understand it ill be a more complicated process to get it up and running (Wii is a proper game console, Xbox is a PC in a box lol). But I would truly love to see this game come to the Wii in the near future.

    The XBOX was using an x86 architecture, so virtualization or API translation was possible. The Wii's PPC, so it'd need a PC emulator, and that's not happening for whatever the SoR remake needs.

    Isn't this based on the OpenBOR engine? If so, it should already be playable on the Wii. I don't know for sure, as I didn't grab ot before the C&D [​IMG]

    [EDIT] - I tracked down a copy, and no, it's not based on OpenBOR, so a port is highly unlikely to be released.

    Except that the Wii port was announced long before the C&D, so it was probably being co-developed for that platform.

    Yeah but with the c and d out there they would have to stop all future plans including a wii port. All you can hope is that the source code got released with it so someone else could do a port job, seeing as the xbox appears to have recieved a port there could be hope but as someone pointed out the xbox can have games ported to it very easily due to the developers kit being available
