    Thanks @DacoTaco, so would this be v0.8.2? Also is there anywhere I can download a precompiled build?

    Alternatively @FIX94 might it be possible to get an additional build of the HBC v1.1.3 with the old LULZ title ID? Just so that it can be used with the old versions of Priiloader, and so that it will directly replace the old HBC v1.1.2.

    According to Marcan:-

    Trying to boot this from vWii mode consistently dumps code all over my GamePad.

    and the normal version works? if so, I guess you have to pack up your entire "apps" folder and send it over to me because I have that wad installed on my wii, vwii and wii vc and it doesnt crash on any of them. also do you maybe use a theme or something? if so I probably need access to that too.

    Just pushed up a new version to my fork.
    https://github.com/FIX94/hbc/releases/
    -added code based on TinyLoad to stub that allows wii vc to return to HBC when wii vc channel booter was used to initially get into HBC
    -pushed OHBC version to 1.1.4
    Also, I recompiled everything using clean libraries so maybe whatever issue you had @N7Kopper is gone with this, anyways I did not have any issues with this file yet myself just like with the last one I uploaded.

    Nope. Still there. I even tried without the theme, so it has to be a problem with my apps. I considered listing them, but uploading them might work better, in case I have any weirdo stuff. (Other than the things that need updating, ignore those, I'm busy)

    ...Hope I nixed the copyrighted stuff and sorry for the size, but I wanted to be sure. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AjN-xkN4EKAvhhlryf6lj5kDg5Q8

    so by just cutting the apps in half on each try until I found the crashing one, turns out the meta.xml file of "SNES9XGX MOD" crashes it, at the very end of it is a null-character (0x00 byte) which for some reason causes it to crash inside one of the libraries on load, I do not know as to why this would happen, it must've been some library or devkit update, if you remove that null-character at the very end and save it, it works just fine again.

    Tried to build one, but no luck (GitVersion.exe: Bad file number error). Hope @DacoTaco or someone else gets lucky and shares a new build.

    you dont have git installed im guessing?
    the source comes with gitversion which helps retrieve the source version, without git it might not work (never tried it without installing git. i just included the exe and dll but i dont think that works apparently)
    that, or reinstalling git also seems to fix the issue in git sometimes

    EDIT : that is ofc, considering you downloaded source using git, and not the zip archive trough github

    I just dusted off my old laptop (it was literally covered in dust) with all the SysCheck HDE code, released and unreleased. Can someone run this to see if it detects the Open HBC? I don't have my Wii or Wii U set up since I moved.

    LMFAO, thanks for the credit! :rofl2:

    Hey @JoostinOnline! Here's my results on the Wii.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Using this OHBC version. So far, so good. Will it be compatible with Wii U Pro Controller too in the future?

    Thanks, really appreciate it. :)

    Adding support for the Pro controller would be pretty easy. FIX94 wrote a great library for it (although I apparently made a bunch of small changes to it). It's literally been years since I've coded, and I'm self-taught, so while juggling work and school I'll have a hard time working everything in.

    Hi guys, sorry to revive this but i wanted to install the ohbc on my vwii and it won't install for some reason, I'm using multi mod manager and I get a did not complete message when trying to install the wad, can anyone help ?
    Is this because I already have the original homebrew or something ?
