    Since I am kind of getting bored of Nintendo DS homebrew, I am deciding whether instead I should make a Wii App Studio. So, I am leaving it up to the community to decide whether I should.

    If a lot of people say that there should be, I will, if not, I will just continue on with my other software I am making at the moment.

    Hmm...we are at a tie. Doesn't seem no one is interested. Well, we will see until 20 votes at least.

    Well, some people are saying yes and some people are saying no. I don't know yet.

    It would make sense for you to take the Wii route since there already is a Gamemaker for DS. My experience making a Wii app with Lua was ... ok I guess. It would have been better if the error reporting wasn't in French. [​IMG] Lua's pretty fun overall, but I think you could do something better, RCM.

    Well, actuall DS Game Maker has been slowed down for some bit(people for some reason hate it now [​IMG]).

    I just want a change from the Nintendo DS homebrew and go onto Wii homebrew. Besides, the Wii has more powerful systems.

    Edit: Why do 33% of the users not want one? I wonder...

    Honestly, I'd like both. They'd both be very interesting to try.

    I say - screw the purists.

    It's a GUI like any other.

    I don't really know what you meant by that, but okay.
    It seems we have more votes for yes or no. I need a few more votes to make my decision.

    Isn't James Garner working on a Wii Game Maker as we speak (DarkFlow), also compatible with the DS, Android and the PSP? It's raining Game Makers lately.

    As long as your creation supports simple, everyday C/C++, go for it.

    We already have at least two "Gamemaker" style development programs for the DS already and none for the Wii. I hope the poll is a victory for a Wii Gamemaker because of that fact.

    Keep in mind that the DS has been replaced by the 3DS so a lot of people see the DS as a legacy system and are hesitant to develop for it. The Wii is still current (and a hell of lot more powerful)-- at least for another year.

    The Wii Game Maker that James Garner is making, I don't know what is going on with that. I heard he discontinued the development of that since it was such a hassle to make a stable environment for all the consoles he was going to add to it.

    Edit: Well, I got an emulator that works to emulate the games.

    Wii Game Studio says "Hi".

    Then Wii Game Studio says "Good bye". That project discontinued a long time ago.

    Well, 5 more yes votes and I will be making it.

    Just to test the emulator, I used some code and compiled it to get this. Warning, though it must use OpenGL:

    I still don't get why the Dolphin developers didn't include all the files needed. It was a pain to find them all.

    Hmm...Since no one else is voting, I may just begin development.
