Version: genplusgx-080601

Sound is working better and it doesn't stall like the unsupported version was doing.

Working wiimote but not classic controller? anyone experiencing the same thing or is this a bug? JD 12:53, 3 June 2008 (PDT)

Yes, I'm having the same issue. I had my classic controller plugged into the remote and the option to switch to the classic controller wasn't given to me. It simply allowed me to switch between the Wiimote and the GameCube controller. Anthony 20:15, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
With the last version (26/08/2008) you have to set calssic 1 in the control emulator menu and it work on game. - Yod4z GMT+1 13:43
Okay, I redownloaded the latest version, and I got it working. I also tried unplugging then plugging the VC controller back in after the emulator loaded and it's working fine for me. Thanks. Anthony 19:50, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Video Problems

i'm using an euro wii (PAL). tried to change all video options on the wii. the emulator works just fine but all visuals are red! it’s like playing the genesis games on a red monitor. i tried everything in video settings on wii. for me it looks like that the emulator automatically switches to ntsc.

If you are using the SD loader, make sure it is the latest version. Try it without just to be sure. And FYI, the video mode that should work on the Wii is 576i. Set that in Wii --> Wii Setiings --> Screen --> TV Type. --Muzer 11:32, 24 March 2008 (PDT)
i did that. i tried it with all tp hacks without sd loader and with sd loader v0.2 (which automatically switches to pal). the thing is: 1 time out of 5 (always rebooting, starting zelda, loading twilight hack, etc.) there are no color problems. Robertle 11:41, 24 March 2008 (PDT)
Same problem here (also on PAL Wii, no difference between 480i/576i). Seems to be some bad RGB-Code or something. And here too, sometimes (but most times not) it will work... And Genplus is the only homebrew that shows this problem for me-- Chrisis 13:36, 24 March 2008 (PDT)
must be something specific to rgb scart. i changed from rgb cable to standard a/v cable and everything works fine! probably a bug in the rgb code of libogc. --robertle 09:43, 27 March 2008 (PDT)
That might be it, as I use compoment and it works fine. Muzer 10:48, 27 March 2008 (PDT)

Unsupported Release by LoPsT

I've tested the version which comes with support for the wiimote but on viewing the list of games for the first time the wiimote looses connection. Its a small annoyance but this seems to be the only problem that I've had with it... All other features are working ok. JD 08:37, 21 May 2008 (PDT)

Yeah, I noticed that too. It lets you reconnect, but for some reason, it always takes a while for the Remote to be able to reconnect after that. Everything else works well, though. --Phred 13:15, 21 May 2008 (PDT)
I don't know about you two, but every time I try to play games on it, a few minutes it in completely freezes. The original Wii port doesn't do this. 10:54, 30 May 2008 (PDT)
Seems to be doing this on mine now... wasn't when using the homebrew launcher rather than the channel?? JD 12:09, 3 June 2008 (PDT)

Errors mounting SD card

When launching Genplus either directly from the TP hack or from a loader, Genplus is unable to mount / read the front SD card - "Error mounting SD card: 0"

Card is a 1GB Switch 'n Carry, blue in color with a white label marked "Compatible with Wii (tm)". Card works fine with all OEM Wii games and system functions. I thought it might be a formatting issue, so I reformatted the card as MS-DOS FAT16 with Linux mkdosfs:

mkdosfs -n wii_sd_01 -v -F 16 /dev/sda1

Results are still the same, Genplus starts fine but it's unable to mount the card.

Problem downloading

The website that the link gives tells me that my account has not been activated yet even though it is. Can someone post a link of it on a website that dosen't require you to have an account?Chosen One 41 04:36, 5 August 2008 (CEST)

Cant get it to use 4 wiimotes

Does someone know how to get this to work with four wiimotes. I can only get it to use 2 wiimotes and their classic controllers for 4 player play. I am stumped so any help would be wonderful.

Small screen glitch when save or load state few times

Always when i want to save or load state it works fine but after a while if i save or load state (more times) my screen gets small & if i go to the wiimenu or hombrew channel it go's slow ? Anyone knows how this comes ?

Widescreen Fix

I don't know about you guys, but I have my NTSC Wii set to Progressive 480p output. When my TV is getting a progressive signal, I am unable to change the display format, it stays locked at 16:9. This poses a problem for the GenPlus because unless you set things to stretched, you got out of ratio games. Here's what I've calculated to be a fix. Under Video Options, Set the aspect to Stretched and Scale X to -73. This squeezes the video to the proper 4:3 aspect (at least on my TV) Now, I could set it to interlaced or "original" rendering and this would change the thing to interlaced mode, which, to me, doesn't look as good.Dewdude 19:11, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

SEGA CD / Mega-CD and 32X support

Is there any chance that support may eventually be added for the console's upgrades? I for one sure would love to be able to play Sonic CD on my Wii! SMR Kurosan 10:25, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Oh hell, yeah. --Mr. Reaper 15:04, 20 May 2009 (UTC) Kixy 16:05, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Please add this to the codes

Pro action replay because the code format is different so not all the time can game genie do the same thing.
