    Looks promising! When will we see more than a demo? Please also share source if u can when u are comfortable releasing the binary

    @blackb0x, check this out! If we eventually get more than a demo it would be sweet to have this integrated into your fork of GX (plus the new wiimmfi v3 patches).

    @XFlak It looks like the old plugin fork. It was abandoned ages ago, but I do already have an updated and less buggy version of it. I just haven't worked on it in a while since I don't have a lot of free time and it'll never be as good as WiiFlow's plugin system.

    Can u tell if it's and old fork or if it's been updated somewhat? If it's been updated maybe it would be less effort for u to integrate? I guess it all depends on the quality of the source code which u don't have access to atm

    Cyans post links to the plugin mod from 2016 and the download link still works, so I'm guessing that's where cheloruiz79's got it from.

    My version of the mod brings everything up to date, fixes some bugs in the mod, cleans up the plugin icon and adds support for parental controls. I haven't released it publicly though because I don't want to maintain it and like I said, WiiFlow Lite simply does it better. And that's shouldn't surprise anyone since WiiFlow has had a plugin system in place for years and it's had a lot of development time put into it.

    Would it be possible to integrate Wiiflow's plugin code to GX? Or is it not that cut and dry?

    Thanks for all the knowledge you're dropping, it's cool if u don't want to do any of this, I'm just curious

    It's not that simple due to the structure of it all. Like we're talking new menus, options, file configurations, title caching, getting and displaying box art at the correct dimensions for each plugin etc.

    Can it be done? Sure, but it'd take a long time to do it right.

    integrating wiiflow plugin is exactly what the 2016's mod is doing.
    a quick wiiflow integration, but it required specific setup from the user. I didn't want to integrate it officially like that either, and would have prefer to make it more "graphically" integrated into the loader. but it's lot of work.
    edit: same as the tabmod, it was more a hack using specific and forced settings that not all users would use, and would have requested more freedom and proper integration inside the GUI.

    Yep. That's exactly what I mean about doing it right.

    You need to be able to enable and disable specific plugins on the fly, have working categories, parental controls, filter between Wii, GC and games from plugins etc. It needs to be as seamless as possible.
