    Hello there, GBATemp forum users.
    Most of you won't know me, as I only just signed up to the forums.

    I have gone on a "quest" to port essentially all Browserhax-based Wii U software to the HBL, to provide everyone with a more pleasant access experience. Here's what I have so far:

    C@VE by @SonyUSA has been ported to HBL, and can be downloaded here.

    TicTacToe by @rw-r-r_0644 has also been fully ported, and can be downloaded here.

    Keyboard by @cmdj13 has not only been ported to HBL, but packaged in a way that it can be included in any OSScreen-based project. Download the example project here and see the repository here for the source code.

    Projects I have yet to port, but plan to:
    * MysteriU by @ryuutseku85
    * Cafiine (the only remaining software dependent on kexploit31)

    Anything else you want me to port to HBL? Let me know in the comments/PM.

    Just because I'm sure someone will ask, both me and brienj have decided not to port our respective LiteNES versions. Bigger and better is coming.

    At some point (i.e. when I have the time and skill) I do want to create a media centre solution. Would porting ffmpeg to the Wii U be too much?

    Hmm... Those look too good to be 'real quickly' made. Thanks. As for emulators, LiteNESU is not as feasible as other emulators, mainly due to lack of sound. As @QuarkTheAwesome said, ports of much more sophisticated emulators will come soon.

    Black screen? Uhm. Are you trying to launch stella.elf or are you compiling it properly? Stella.elf is the libretro core.
    Kinda have to note that even if you compile it don't expect much - even the slightly-never version on my local machine has issues (tries to read from 0xE).

    Thank you for taking the time to port old homebrew to HBL :)
    I'll keep your thread in mind to create the respective homebrew wiki page and link to HBL versions.
