    I was under the impression that Wood R4 was open source... Is this not correct? Because I can't seem to find where to download the source.

    Either way, I think a github page should be set up for Wood r4. I think it would make things better for the entire community so people could just build off of it. Maybe it would spark some new branches that would support other carts.

    Anyone who doesn't know much about GIT and would like to know more you can check out this site.

    They use github for the PSGroove and A LOT of people have already branched stuff off of it and started making some pretty cool things.

    I don't think it's open source.

    Wood R4 isn't the original name of the project (it's added support from Wood R.P.G.), so yeah, it's under the link JP gave (which was just updated 3/4 days ago).

    I think the source is just find the way it is.

    You make it too easy to get/modify/build, then you're going to have 'l33t h4x0rz' dicking around with the code and uploading broken builds that are ZOMGNEW!!!! but only change a word.
    The way it is now, it's too much of a bother for people who don't know what they're doing to get it (since they most likely don't know how to do SVN Checkouts), which means they can't edit it, which means they can't distribute 'l33t h4x0r' versions. Yet someone who knows what they're doing would have no problem getting it, editing it if they have a need to, and compiling it -- and if the change is important enough, submitting it for consideration of inclusion into Wood.
