Homebrew applications

From WiiBrew
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page gives an overview of released homebrew apps. The Twilight Hack and the new Homebrew Channel is currently the only way to run the apps on an unmodified console.

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 (480p @ 60 Hz in PAL Wii) using the offical Nintendo RGB cable for Wii.
