Homebrew applications

From WiiBrew
Jump to: navigation, search

This page gives an overview of released homebrew apps. Anything that can be run from an elf file and has working controls (if it needs them) counts, even if it is a direct port of a GC app. The Twilight Hack is currently the only way to run the apps on an unmodified console. That, and the new early version of the Home-Brew Channel.


Note to developers - Please include an autodetect routine (VIDEO_GetCurrentTVMode()) to detect HDTV/EDTV and set the appropriate video mode. (TVNtsc480Prog) Many people are running through component output, and it seems a good time to suggest this while not much has been released yet.

The current video autodetect routine doesn't work with PAL60 (480i @ 60 Hz in PAL Wii) using the offical Nintendo RGB cable for Wii.
