211w ago - This weekend Hermes has released uLoader v3.2 for the Nintendo Wii console.
uLoader is based on Kwiirk's YAL and Waninkoko's USBLoader that supports both custom IOS (cIOS222 and cIOS249)
to launch backups from USB mass storage devices with a graphical user interface similar to Wii channels.
To quote, roughly translated: Version 3.2 with Ocarina and forced Video. Compatible with Rock Band and others using USB peripherals. Supports games on DVD release. Support BCA data, dol alternative and corrects error 002. Added support for channels using forwarder.dol and Loadstructor.
NOTE: Run first cios_installer.dol (3.0 required). Now you can select the IOS used to install.
• Support for BCA datas. You can add it from .ISO offset 0x100 (64 bytes). If this area is filled with zeroes it use one BCA by default (NSMB compatible).
New ioctl 0xda function supported in dip_plugin and new option added for DVD mode to read...
212w ago - Last month we unveiled the Nintendo Wii WODE final design pictures and specifications alongside some Defcon1 demos, and today wodedev has made available (below) a WODE WiFi proof of concept demo video.
To quote from the video's caption: "Proof of Concept Demo, Wode playing Farcry ISO from a SAMBA share on a PC. PC and Wode are connected via a WiFi router."
Those interested can check it out below, and if you haven't seen it already the WODE Moon Trip demo video is further down.
It demonstrates the WODE playing multidisc GameCube games on the Nintendo Wii console. Enjoy!
213w ago - Last month we posted some gameplay trailers and screens for the New Super Mario Bros. videogame that is hitting the Nintendo Wii.
Today Vooks.net (linked above) has shared a look inside of the red New Super Mario Bros Wii case via some pictures available below.
If I owned a Wii console, this would be one title I'd be getting during the holiday season... is anyone else here planning to pick it up?
Anyway, to quote: "Yes, if you're also wondering that means we have got our copy, and we're not just going to be posting pictures of the case.
Look out for more videos of the game later tonight. The manual art we have received is also different from the US art which features a dot-art design rather then the mosaic strips of items we get."
Finally, for those curious on the story's outline: The game will follow the traditional storyline of Princess Peach getting kidnapped by Bowser. When Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad, and Yellow Toad are celebrating Princess Peach's birthday in her castle, a large cake reels in.
214w ago - Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata has confirmed that in the near future it will test out providing demos on the WiiWare service.
Apparently the reason why demos will be provided on the network is because Nintendo wants to try and lure in new shoppers to the service.
To quote: "During the Q&A session at a recent earnings briefing, Iwata told investors that Nintendo would begin a test program for WiiWare demos some time this month. The test will cover just a few titles.
According to Iwata, Nintendo is undertaking this test to see if it can get more players shopping on the Wii Shopping Channel.
He admitted that the market for WiiWare and DSi Ware is currently small, with the Wii Shopping Channel and DSi Shop browsed only by people who already know the game they want to get."
