    I noticed a thread like a "Homebrew Starter's Pack" and decided to do something similar. Well, layout wise. This is more essentials, though. I've kept it in spoilers to keep the post from looking "too long". And sorry, no fancy pictures yet. I may get around to it.

    Sticky this if you want.

    This is just a taste of the diverse amounts of Wii homebrew out there. I encourage you to try different applications and support homebrew developers out there to keep making the Wii scene a better place. If you have any suggestions for any type of homebrew that should be here, just reply to the post. I'm open to modifying the list.

    replace mplayer with mplayer ce, update wadmanager 1.3 to 1.5 and i recommend wiixplorer over sd explorer.

    and you missed 3 of the best wii hb games:

    Helium Boy
    Project GMC
    Supersonic Wii

    all in all your post looks a little bit outdated.

    Alright, I updated it. I added Supersonic Wii, Mplayer CE, and WiiXplorer. I also added a link to a full list of homebrew games.

    I would also recommend the Genesis emulator.

    I added Genesis Plus, since that's the only Genesis emulator for the Wii I know of.

    Great topic!
    I would suggest Wi64, but since it isn't working that good, I'll don't do it.

    Else, I would suggest Geexbox, because it always seems to read my second partition on my Wii HD, where MPlayer doesn't recognize it.

    Last updated a year ago, and you revived a 3/4-month old thread. What's not to get?

    How do you revive a thread that is pinned? Pinning is like drinking the holy grail, you can't kill it.

    Even though it's outdated, I didn't know that had a jazz jackrabbit port =)

    This.

    There's no wimc, wiisx is in beta 1... there are almost no games or utilities...

    EDIT: Could I start a list on my own? Do I need any persmissions or something?

    Sorry to bump this thread, but whenever I try to put StillAlive on my SD Card, and play it on my Wii, it doesn't load. It comes up with an error.

    Code:
    Couldn't init the SD Card. Maybe you forgot to put it in the Wii...

    I need that Quake Port..... It's prolly the closest I'll ever get to playing DOOM on my little white homebrew executor.

    Umm, OK? The link in the first post still works fine, so what are you asking for?
