    Can someone compile this updated Padcon into an ELF please?

    https://github.com/WiiDatabase/Padcon-Plugin-Mod

    Also any mod that autoswtiches the vWii output into 480p when you boot it would be most welcome as I tried it out and letting the TV upscale and the overall image quality is much, much better that way.

    Why even bring up vWii? Rice64 is the only one that actually runs the game, and it's outdated as hell, if this where to happen it should be done through modified VC Injection.

    A media player for Wii U is very much needed.

    Seriously, there's like 8 media players for the goddamn Wii and it only supports 480p!
    Yet, the Wii U supports 1080p but nobody thought to make a simple media player. WHAT THE HELL!

    I don't know anything about Wii U homebrew development, but just porting WiiMC and freshening it up a little doesn't seem like it would be insanely hard.
    I know I can't really talk because I haven't contributed anything in that department but c'mon.
    We have three MAME emulators and not a single media player?

    Get the priorities straight.

    All of Wii's HB media players work on Wii U, that being said they perform terribly on it unless all you want is music or a video less then 5 minutes long.

    I know, and the max resolution is only 480p, which is ASININE for watching movies or tv show episodes.
    Also, after like 2 minutes of run time there is almost always stutters and crashes, and at that point, why even bother with that?
    There's literally like 8 different media players for the Wii, each one worse than the last, like why even waste your time?

    On the other hand, the Wii U has the potential of 1080p resolution and hours and hours of playing video, which screams to be used by homebrewers, they could make some scrappy player so that people can download a bunch of anime and watch it in full HD! But nooo...
    Instead the Wii U homebrew devs are more interested in making a flappy bird clone and 3 seperate MAME emulators instead of a simple media player.

    It's quite sad actually.

    Not to trash on devs but aside from RetroArch and Injects everything else was treated with a, just use Wii hb, which with the exception of Nintendont, is really fucking annoying.

    I get Switch is everyone's new favorite toy, but to just leave Wii U scene as is, is fucking pathetic and all anyone is asking is 2 things a real fucking media player, and a file explorer.

    I'm also sick of hearing people make retarded complaints about Wii U when you can easily tell they've never fucking owned one and their knowledge is based on what other shit talking non owners say about it.

    Too much emphasizing on what it can't do. All I'll say there is fuck Saturn/Dreamcast, fuck 4k.

    Oh and want to talk about can't? Switch cannot use TV and Gamepad at the same time so Wii U is still superior for DS.

    I also laugh at the thought of GC/Wii on Switch. The performance is going to be a wasted effort.

    I gotta agree with this.
    People relied too much on the Wii U having backwards compatibility for the Wii for most homebrew purposes, and that really sucks ass, because the Wii U has an amazing potential to become a great multimedia machine, and an almost all-in-one emulation one too.

    I just which that a proper multimedia player can appear for it, and perhaps seeing the bounties still pending for emulation on the Wii U to be finished. That'd be all I ask to close down the Wii U.

    Makes you miss the glory days of systems like the original xbox and psp, those systems have near everything under the sun for them. These days it feels like once piracy is achieved on a system that's pretty much it for the most part.

    Hello World app, that displays "Hello World". I know, a little unrealistic.

    Not to mention Haxchi/CBHC is what should be considered the starting point not the finish line.

    Believe it or not there are a lot of people who won't even fuck with CFW till it's got something like that.

    No, there is no Hb to bypass the limit. It's also simpler to limit your Injects to N64/GC/DS/Wii and use RA for everything else. Also 3DS games are a lot smaller so it's a lot more common for more people to come closer to that limit.

    If it where possible to port it alone it would have been done already.

    The biggest problem there is how that tool works by tricking via DSi mode vs how Wii U and vWii work.

    Loading Homebrew from Wii U side immediately unloads when the console boots into vWii.

    I'd also like to add my interest for a WiiUMC.
    I have a PS4 on the same tv but filetypes are limited, and no matter what I do in settings I always get bad over scan on my ps4, Wii U actually conforms to my TV's screen.

    Also I remember WiiMC was able to play DVDs on earlier models, would such a plugin be possible for the Wii U to play Blu-Rays? I know Wii U discs aren't exactly the same as blu-ray discs, but they are the same density and laser format correct?

    Anyways if one is made I hope its as simple and intuitive as WiiMC, as a lot of Wii U homebrew are lacking in the GUI department.

    Hi Immortallix, Without ever having one, I believe a Blu Ray player for the Wii U is near impossible. Every sale of a bluray player or compatible software still has to pay royalties to the creator Phillips. I had a ton of problems with overscan between my laptop and my TV's, for which I have laptop docking stations attached to each TV. One TV's overscan was fixed with the TV's internal menu display settings, the other through laptop display settings in graphics properties. I found a WiiU MC update yesterday, but it barely seems to work for me (it runs on IOS 255 which may require more work behind the scenes). https://gbatemp.net/questions/has-anyone-had-wiiu-mc-version-1-3-5-working.4339/

    I desire a port of Xash3D, a GUI file manager, more emulators (no RetroArch please. RA just clutters up my HBL.), the ability to use 2 wiimotes to emulate a gamepad, a proper FreeShop "clone" (Wii U USB Helper doesn't work anymore, so shaddup. I would use FunKii-UI but I dont wanna upgrade to Win 7 SP1 from plain Win 7 because the only copy of Win 7 we have is a burned CD with Home Premium on it.),a noob-proof permanent CFW, etc.
