===LibGameLoad===
+
Could you tell me how you got the HBB to update it self?--[[User:Hunterm|HUN73R /\/\.]] 03:28, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
"Game Load" is a utility listed in HBB. Really, it's a demo for libgameload. Is the source code for libgameload anywhere? I can't seem to find it or the demo anywhere but HBB. This looks like something I want to play around with, but it doesn't seem to exist. Anyone have details? [[User:Bobpaul|Bobpaul]]
+
: It firstly connects to the internet and checks a text file which contains the file size of the boot.dol. If this file size doesn't match the size the user currently has then it prompts the user to update. Then it just downloads the new boot.dol and meta.xml files to the correct location. There is a download example here: [[Homebrew Browser#NetSend Example + HTTP Download Example ]]
: I don't believe the source is available but here is a thread that the author has replied in: http://www.tehskeen.com/forums/showthread.php?p=44500. Also the author has their own website at http://www.cashman-productions.fr.nf. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 23:14, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
 
  
===DVD-X===
+
I have used this program successfully many time launched from the SD card. I now wish to move my HomeBrew to my USB Drive. My first attempt was to have a WBFS partition fist with a Fat32 second on the Drive. That did not work so I tried moving the Fat32 to the first partition. That started to work but each time I Download an App the Wii crashes with a Stack Dump... Can this app run from a Fat32 partition of a USB Drive? Secondly with the WBFS as the second partition my WiiFlow USB loader would not see my files. But that is for another PAGE.--[[User:Capple123|capple123]] 02:10, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
Does the DVD-X Installer download come with PatchMii so it can install the patchmii version for modchip users?  or is patchmii a seperate app you have to install altogether?
 
: PatchMii is a separate application for modchip users which can be found here: http://hackmii.com/2008/08/libdi-and-the-dvdx-installer/ --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 08:46, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

How do you add custom repositories to the HBB? [[User:Deozaan|Deozaan]] 06:36, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
I quote this from the Homebrew Channel/Bugs page " but I prefer to leave my WiiConnect24 on, as I get messages from Nintendo and the Homebrew Browser, and I like to be notified when they arrive." Is it true that HBB gives out notices? If so I have yet to receive one. [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 00:09, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
+
: Here is the guide to adding a repo http://www.codemii.com/hbb-repositories/ --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 04:55, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
: Yes it's true but firstly you need to add hbb@codemii.com to your Wii address book. A few days later you'll get a confirmation email and then an email when applications have been updated. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 08:42, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
 
  
The HBB used to work fine,, But i don't know what i did, patch mii dvdx maybe?(thats the only thing i can think of. but now the HBB doesn't work... it says connecting to server, server connected now loading homebrew browser and then it restarts homebrew channel. Or if it can't connect it says error (i am not home now so  am not sure but i think error-ret 115) and it says retrying (infinately until i get a code dump error.)

How I can tell a new version of my program? [[User:wilco2009|wilco2009]] <span style="font-size: smaller;" class="autosigned">—Preceding undated comment added 08:27, 6 September 2011 (CEST).</span><!--Template:Undated-->

Why do you have to wait a few days before HBB accepts your message board request? You don't have to do it manually do you? You should look into automating it. -- [[User:GamingMedley.com|GamingMedley.com]] 04:02, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
+
Is there any way to get a copy of the source code? [[User:Bth8|-- Bth8]] ([[User talk:Bth8|talk]]) 17:26, 24 February 2013 (CET)
:It is manually done. I haven't made it automatic as some people do send messages to this email address and there are various formats/languages of friends requests. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 10:20, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
 
===Homebrew Browser Channel===
 
I am assuming this is legal (please correct me if I am wrong) as long as I get your permission FIRST, would you like the HBB  to become a Channel made using [[Benzin]]? I would make the installer and channel and such. How interested are you? I know a few people have illegally made this with copyrighted banners and such so I see it as if you provide it, then there is no need for people to illegally make/use it. [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 18:38, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

:::Do you have a graphics package of photoshop files or illustrator files perhaps? I will at least need your biggest image of your logo. Lastly, I'm going to need the loop.mod file from the app in some more "common" file type. I should have the installer part done (without proper graphics) soon and the channel part just needs the artwork and then I can get you a alpha or beta version for you to preview while I clean-up debug info and clean-out unused code.

:::::: Interesting :D Makes me wonder if you might add the ability to launch an app from within HBB, thus making it an alternative to bubble popping magic of the HBC. It would also be handy if Ninty suddenly decide to block the HAXX ticket or something [[User:Ensign R|Ensign R]] 14:03, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
 
Well, we are looking good. I have a test channel up and running pretty good. I tried to download something and it code dumped but I think that was a hiccup on HBB not the channel. I will need to do some artwork clean-up and rearrangement so that it looks better (for the test I took the .psd  and converted it straight to a .png for testing). I also need to adjust the llop point in the audio as right now it sounds like it is a scratched CD at the end-of-loop point. Once the images are properly I am hoping to shrink the size of the channel as it is currently 28 blocks (6.33MB). The installer is about half way through being programmed. The only thing I have to ask is that you keep a standard on the folder name for HBB. @Ensign R, no worries, the ticket name for this is HBB3. [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 20:26, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
 
: HUGE UPDATE!!!!! I fixed the code dump issue (it was on me, all in method of loading HBB). The artwork for the channel is done and the only thing I need some help is with the music loop. I am trying to cut it at 15 seconds in (right after the bells stop) but I can't get a precise enough "chop" to make it sound right. If you can get that to sound good the channel will be visibly functional (but I am going to check the dpi as I think it is set above 72 (SD quality). I found a better method in how to launch HBB where it doesn't require any external files or anything but I am fighting my compiler on that. The installer is mostly ready for alpha tests but if you see in the forums I am fighting compiler issues. Once it is compiled I need to look at some debug information, then we are ready for beta testing i.e. see if we brick peoples' wiis running other systems (just kidding). I will need people to test out if this works on 3.2,3.4, and 4.0 wiis as my system version is 3.3. I am thinking that you (tecknecal) can get this for you to approve by thursday if I get the installer compile problem fixed. I think it is my "environment" that is the issue, so I am off to uninstall and reinstall. [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 21:22, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
 
::I don't know whether you still need it, but I made a nicely looping version of the music. Download it [http://files.helsionium.eu/hbb-loop.wav here]. It's a 44.1 kHz, 16 bit, stereo WAV file. The loop start should be at sample 42376, loop end at 719752 (end of file). I don't know details about the format required for channels, but if one the loop points must be aligned at a specific boundary, you can move the loop start left about 400ms (15000 samples) or right indefinitely (of course, this requires duplicating the sample material after the loop start point).

::: Good work but... currently the methods I know for making channels does not support starting the loop partially in the loop file.

===LAN "Virtual Server"===
 
It'd be cool if it was possible to create a "virtual server" for HBB on your LAN. I have 3 wii's, and it takes forever on my internet connection to download stuff from codemii.com (heck, the domain takes almost a minute to resolve when I start HBB). On the other hand, i can transfer a 528MB bootmii nand dump in about a minute between systems on the network.
 
  
What I'm proposing is that I can download applications/updates to apps to one Wii (thereby waiting only once for your servers), and designate that wii as a server. HBBs on the other wii's on my network can be pointed to that wii via IP address, and can receive the updated software from it, without ever going out to codemii.com.
+
=== Request ===
  
For instance, all 3 of my wii's have FTPii, SNES9x, and some others on them. With this, I would download the updates to one wii from codemii, and tell the other wii's to get it from the one i updated. At the speeds i mentioned above, a few apps like SNES9x and ftpii should update in about 15 seconds from something on my network. I currently wait almost 15 minutes per wii to download updated apps, even if i do it at 1:00am on Saturday mornings!
+
Keep up to date with weekly notification emails, add hbb@codemii.com to your Wii address book to get fortnightly updates sent to your Wii. - No longer available
 +
Could you make it available again?

What about moving the apps section to another page? (I mean here on Wiibrew) The list is getting a little long, no? -- [[User:Tj cool|Tj cool]]
  
: It does sound like a fine suggestion, when I did use the SVN libfat, downloading and extracting did speed up however when downloading from codemii things can go a bit slowish (50 KB/s) at times. What concerns me is that it takes 1 minute to resolve the codemii domain, this should only take 1 to 3 seconds at most. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 11:21, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

:: The site loads fine on my computer most times - typically resolves in under 5 and loads in about 15 seconds.

I haven't done much lately with this but now I have a working compiler again so the installer is getting closer. The channel on the other hand is killing me.

:::: I'm now doing debugging on the installer.

I am going to add in some debug code to see if it is the channel launch code or HBB code. Do you know what IOS HBB runs on? [[User:Pinball wizard|Pinball wizard]] 20:39, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

: I'm cleaning up code for the installer now, commenting out debug info and about to lock down the installer to the final channel pieces now instead of anything you want. I need to put some placeholder logo spots and finish recoding the code for the channel. I have a list of testers and should be ready to beta test in a week. @Teknecal, Don't worry about anything with your app just yet. I think I found the issue in the channel launching check your pms for details on it. After beta tests I will shoot you up for approval and I should have release 1.0 out very soon.

:: If you do plan to implement this, the other wii's should show a catalog of all the software available on the server wii to give users a choice of what new (not already installed) stuff will install and what old stuff will update, since some people may not want all the software on the server wii on every "client" wii, or may want to update only certain apps with new versions, while keeping other ones with old stuff.

=== Better distinguish between downloaded/HBB apps ===

It would be possible, meta.xml being an xml file, to insert extra fields into it, without too many things exploding, surely. For instance, it could be possible to insert some hbb specific fields, for instance:
Also, ''a lot'' of programs coming from outside HBB don't have metas and icons, which makes them look ugly.

=== Download to USB support ===
+
=== Update all apps ===
Since HBC 1.0.2 is out and it has USB support, it would be cool to add support to save to the USB drive. When you'd download an app, it'd ask if you want to save in the SD card or USB drive. It could also be made default from a settings menu. And when no SD card would be detected, it'd automatically download to USB and vice-versa.

=== Homebrew Channel Banner updating with latest Homebrew ===

Is it possible to make a channel of this for the system menu for easy access to the HBB. This way it could be like the Wii Shop Channel. Thanks! [[User:OJ|OJ]]

Somehow this always confuses me but before I download Homebrew it tells me the size of the Homebrew app and then when I download it, it tells me the download is smaller than what I saw previously. I then figured out that the download is zipped and the file size in the description is the extracted size. Maybe use this format in the description instead?

I agree. v0.3 is great. The layout is functional and looks fantastic. Even the guy that looks like Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender ;)
 
 
 
IMO you could take the design one step further and HBB could be an alternative to HBC. Change the installed programmes button to toggle the categories below to display installed programmes only or every programme the HBB is aware of. Add the ability to run a programme from within the details of each programme. Voila. HBB has HBC functionality and everything is sorted and earier to find. You could also add a favourites category. The ultimate thing would be to install HBB as a channel on the system menu, but I believe there is no legal way of doing that.

:It's unlikely that you will find any emulator, on any system, that is distributed with any software (ROMs) for that emulator. The reason for this is that not doing so (generally) absolves the maker (or distributor) of the emulator from any copyright concerns that may still exist with the software. Yes it would be quite easy and a heck of a lot more convenient for all if your emulator included or could download ROMs themselves, but as I've stated that would pose a copyright issue and as such does not happen. You can download ROMs quite easily yourself off the net, but in doing so yourself the onus is on you. [[User:Ensign R|Ensign R]] 13:34, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

===Not recognizing my homebrew apps? {{Talk:Homebrew Browser/Open}}===
 
I've added a lot of apps manually, which HBB doesn't recognize at all. Is it possible for you to recognize multiple versions of the same file? Also, I use custom meta.xml files for each app. Is this how you determine whether or not I have the app? If so, I suggest it be changed to check just the <version>/<release_date> tag(s) of the XML file, and nothing else. If possible, after installing the app, only update the <version>/<release_date> tag(s), leaving the rest to be the custom data (if it is custom). It may be too hard to determine whether or not it's custom, because I imagine it would include a database of all previous meta.xml files, so maybe you could simply update just the <version>/<release_date> and maybe <long_description> for apps whether that's absolutely necessary. That got a little off-topic, and can probably be split to another suggestion altogether, but mainly: is this why or why doesn't HBB recognize all of my applications? -- [[User:GamingMedley.com|GamingMedley.com]] 04:53, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
 
: HBB only detects programs that is in the list file (http://www.codemii.com/hbb/homebrew_browser/listv030.txt). It just checks the for the directory name and the corresponding boot.dol/elf file. If the boot file is there then it makes it as installed. If you do have an application which you think should be on HBB, provided it doesn't do any modifications that could cause an issue on the Wii if used incorrectly, then please do advise me of the application. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 10:20, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
 
:: Well, these are apps that are already on HBB, but HBB doesn't acknowledge that I have them. I assumed it was because I used custom meta.xml files. I'll see which ones aren't showing next time I boot up HBB. [[User:GamingMedley.com|GamingMedley.com]] 19:04, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
 
:: Mii Extractor (/Mii-Extractor_v1.0/) and Genesis Plus (/genplus/) aren't being recognized. These are the folders the applications came with from their official ZIPs outside of HBB. I'm sure there are others, but I have way too many apps to remember. [[User:GamingMedley.com|GamingMedley.com]] 21:08, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
 
;; This is happening for me as well.  Any app that I installed manually isn't shown, and I have to redownload it to have it shown as installed.  [[User:Williamdude1|Williamdude1]] 05:59, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
 
 
 
===Wii Linux===
 
How big is Wii Linux? I can possibly host it for you, if you creditted me somewhere in HBB for the hosting. Nothing extravagant is necessary, obviously, but I'm hoping something can be arranged. - [[User:GamingMedley.com|GamingMedley.com]] 04:54, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
 
:That would probably be hard for Teknecal because it looks for the zip file with the name of the app in codemii.com, it seems that it would be hard to hardcode it to your site for just one application.
 
::It'd be rather easy. if (app == WiiLinux) { some other site } else { codemii.com } Or, he could use a header redirect from codemii. For example, having WiiLinux listed as codemii.com/WiiLinux.php, then putting header("Location: some other site") in WiiLinux.php. -- [[User:GamingMedley.com|GamingMedley.com]] 04:00, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
 
:::Neither of those solutions is very elegant, and, although I like the header redirect it's not very scalable.  One possible solution is to implement mirrors.  The main download site would be codemii, but if that returned a 404 or if the site was unavailable the HBB would fall back to one of the mirrors.  This avoids having to manually insert redirects every time an app can't/won't be hosted on codemii.  It does, however, have the dirty side-effect of requiring more code and generating bad requests for the codemii site.  Regardless of our suggested solutions, it seems unlikely any of them will be implemented.  It's not cost effective to put all that work in for a single package.  If people want wiiLinux then they already know about it.  If they already know about it they'll be able to find it, download it, and, install it, ''manually''. -- [[User:MetaFight|MetaFight]] 04:54, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
 
::::As far as I know, WiiLinux is the only file Teknecal is refusing to host solely for its file size, so "manually inserting redirects" wouldn't be a huge deal - there would only be one. As for the mirror suggestion, it would be ~3 lines of text in an .htaccess file, then however he wants to go about figuring out what mirror to use via a server-side file. If he has an exact backup elsewhere, then it would require hardly any code to find the mirror'd file. But it's a good point that if they want it bad enough, they can install it manually. I was just trying to expand the HBB file list, but it's no big deal. [[User:GamingMedley.com|GamingMedley.com]] 19:03, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
 
::::Yeah, I think it's over 100MB if I recall, I don't think anyone would want to wait 1 hour or more just to download it. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 10:20, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
 
Cant you make it downloadable in different sections?
 
EG.
 
Wii-Linux-1
 
Wii-Linux-2
 
etc.
 
And a final .dol to compile them?
 
Then again this would be the developers work and not Teknecals i assume.

===Updating Quake Wii {{Talk:Homebrew Browser/Received}}===
 
When updating Quake Wii, PAK0.PAK gets overwritten. This is bad, because I have vispatched my .PAK files to have transparent water. Why not check if PAK0.PAK exists first and then download a version without PAK0.PAK?

I was browsing apps, downloading Kobo Delux, and adding to the queue, when it crashed. Now, it's a big annoyance to take a camera and photograph the screen, and it's not the most user friendly, so why not dump the info to a TXT file instead? Then, instead of a screen with coding nonsence, a screen pops up saying "The Homebrew Browser has encounterd a fatal error, and mus be closed", and send you back to the Menu or Homebrew Channel. And if possible, even have the Browswe send the error in to the server on the next start-up.

For example the game Alien Breed downloads but is not stored and the ‘download’ button is still available after two attempts. The Game date is 1970 and so last in the list! The download counter also reads 'ws' and not the expected '0' zero - so maybe one or both of these things break the normal install route. --[[User:Titmouse|Titmouse]] 21:48, 2 December 2010 (CET)

If you add an app to queue then open up the "Download/Delete Queue" page, the app you selected will be there.

I also use a USB-HDD with a FAT32 on the 1st partition, with no SD Card whatsoever (my card slot is defective), and I noticed that HBB takes several minutes to update all the app icons.

== UAEWii install issue ==

Hello there. There seem to be issue in installing UAEWii with Homebrew Browser: simply put when installed from there it won't work.
+
In the last release (0.3.9e) the loop.mod file is not played. The mod support seems broken.
One of the things that go wrong seems to be related to the fact that uae/uaerc is in fact created as uae/uaerc'''/''' instead, thus making the emulator fail the boot up due to missing configurationf file. Hoping this to be useful, --[[User:Erik Bauer|Erik Bauer]] 08:25, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

: I see. It appears that because there isn't any extension to the file name, that when unzipping it thinks it's a folder. I've tried using ftpii to transfer it across and it also fails, thinking it's a folder. Will need to investigate. --[[User:Teknecal|Teknecal]] 09:06, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Apps

Wanted Apps

If you want an app added, list it in the following format:

* [[App name]] version

If the App Name is different from the page name on WiiBrew, use the format:

* [[Page name|App name]] version


Apps deliberately not included in standard HBB Repo

This list could change, and was not made by Teknecal

Title Reason
AnyRegion Changer Included in lukegb's repository
AnyTitle Deleter and AnyTitle Deleter MOD Included in lukegb's repository
Channel File Manager Add extra barrier to prevent unsafe usage
Dop-SHOP Add extra barrier to prevent unsafe usage

Questions

Could you tell me how you got the HBB to update it self?--HUN73R /\/\. 03:28, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

It firstly connects to the internet and checks a text file which contains the file size of the boot.dol. If this file size doesn't match the size the user currently has then it prompts the user to update. Then it just downloads the new boot.dol and meta.xml files to the correct location. There is a download example here: Homebrew Browser#NetSend Example + HTTP Download Example

I have used this program successfully many time launched from the SD card. I now wish to move my HomeBrew to my USB Drive. My first attempt was to have a WBFS partition fist with a Fat32 second on the Drive. That did not work so I tried moving the Fat32 to the first partition. That started to work but each time I Download an App the Wii crashes with a Stack Dump... Can this app run from a Fat32 partition of a USB Drive? Secondly with the WBFS as the second partition my WiiFlow USB loader would not see my files. But that is for another PAGE.--capple123 02:10, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

What about moving the apps section to another page? (I mean here on Wiibrew) The list is getting a little long, no? -- Tj cool

Homebrew Browser Channel

I haven't done much lately with this but now I have a working compiler again so the installer is getting closer. The channel on the other hand is killing me. I am stuck with getting weird debug info like HBB used to give. Any help on how to read those Teknecal? Pinball wizard 01:19, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Does it say like debug [1] Not owner? I think that the fix is to format the SD card. --Teknecal 13:19, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
It isn't debug info I put it wrong. I meant to say Code Dumps. It looks to be all hex code. Check your pms too. Pinball wizard 19:06, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
The installer is getting closer. I have all the code checking out okay but I think that my development environment is having problems. Closer now though. Still have the channel issues. Hoping to maybe release before I die, lol. Pinball wizard 19:35, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm now doing debugging on the installer. If I can figure the channel issue out and approval from Teknecal, I should release soon.*@Teknecal, The issue with the channel is that it shows the kind of code dump as what you have at the end of your 1 year anniversary video. I am going to add in some debug code to see if it is the channel launch code or HBB code. Do you know what IOS HBB runs on? Pinball wizard 20:39, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm cleaning up code for the installer now, commenting out debug info and about to lock down the installer to the final channel pieces now instead of anything you want. I need to put some placeholder logo spots and finish recoding the code for the channel. I have a list of testers and should be ready to beta test in a week. @Teknecal, Don't worry about anything with your app just yet. I think I found the issue in the channel launching check your pms for details on it. After beta tests I will shoot you up for approval and I should have release 1.0 out very soon. Pinball wizard 02:48, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

What's up with this? I'd love to have this as a channel, it'd save a step. Dashxdr 03:59, 13 October 2010 (CEST)

No idea what happened with it. Teknecal 09:44, 31 October 2010 (CET)

Search

Umh... There is so many apps available, and no search. Search would be really useful! --Error 14:17, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

I'll do something like searching by letter, e.g. A, B, C will bring you directly to those applications. --Teknecal 04:55, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

Better distinguish between downloaded/HBB apps

It would be possible, meta.xml being an xml file, to insert extra fields into it, without too many things exploding, surely. For instance, it could be possible to insert some hbb specific fields, for instance: <hbb:repository>lukegb</hbb:repository> <hbb:downloaded>true</hbb:downloaded> <hbb:lastversion>xyzabc</hbb:lastversion>

Update all apps

There should be an option to update all apps, and perhaps also an option to turn off the Wii afterwards. This way I can hit the button and go to bed with no worries.--SkiDragon 13:00, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

More icons

Replace the wii zapper icon for apps with a button called "more peripherals" that has information such as usb support. --Toagac 12:33, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm hoping to have a little arrow to move the icons to the left so you can scroll through them. --Teknecal 00:44, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Multiple download threads

I would really like to see this app use multiple threads to download. Downloading files can be painfully slow. :). --Sonicsleep 03:54, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Classic Support

Could classic controller support be added? Bsltiger 07:53, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

I'll look into it. --Teknecal 00:44, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
I hope you can find a way to add it in :) --MegaSuperab (talk) 18:42, 27 June 2016 (CEST)

HBC Themes

Add a new tab for all the Homebrew Channel Themes. Randomdude 23:49, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

I agree, there are many of us over here making these "Awesome" themes and would like an easier way for people to see how "Awesome" they really are. --Abeckring 06:52, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
In progress, it'll be a repo of HBC themes and I'll add a "fake" app in Utilities which will explain how to access the repo. --Teknecal 14:02, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
v0.3.9 test version here: http://www.codemii.com/hbb.v0.3.9.test.dol, HBC Themes are accessible via the Repo named "HBC Themes" (Settings page 3, Use Other Repositories). Let me know if there are any issues and also let me know if you have a >4GB device and if HBB picks up the right amount of free space. --Teknecal 01:28, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
How come some themes don't show up in the repository? --Abeckring 04:39, 2 September 2010 (CEST)
I just have to add the rest that were added to WiiBrew since about 1-2 weeks ago which I'll do in the next day or so. --Teknecal 10:35, 2 September 2010 (CEST)
Is there any possibility of putting themes in that aren't allowed on wiibrew? --Abeckring 23:34, 11 September 2010 (CEST)
No, probably not. --bg4545 01:42, 12 September 2010 (CEST)
Probably! Randomdude 05:04, 21 October 2010 (CEST)

HBB Themes

For the next version you should add theming, just like what the HBC has. It would be cool to have a custom HBB. --Abeckring 23:39, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

File Size Adjustment?

Somehow this always confuses me but before I download Homebrew it tells me the size of the Homebrew app and then when I download it, it tells me the download is smaller than what I saw previously. I then figured out that the download is zipped and the file size in the description is the extracted size. Maybe use this format in the description instead? "1.0MB (0.59MB Zipped)" --Wildgoosespeeder 23:48, 4 January 2011 (CET)

Translation

What about make HBB translatable? I could translate it in Italian or in Esperanto... ----→ Airon Ĉ 16:51, 13 August 2011 (CEST)

Game downloads but not installed RECEIVED

For example the game Alien Breed downloads but is not stored and the ‘download’ button is still available after two attempts. The Game date is 1970 and so last in the list! The download counter also reads 'ws' and not the expected '0' zero - so maybe one or both of these things break the normal install route. --Titmouse 21:48, 2 December 2010 (CET)

Corrupted Icon Image OPEN

The image on NewoShooter 1.26 crashes the homebrew browser when I select it from the list. When selected the image appears corrupted under the game title, then the application locks up. I'm not sure if its because I created it with microsoft paint in windows Vista. I have the latest version of HBB and 4.3 install on my normal wii. Owen 02:04, 16 January 2011 (CET)

The image seems ok it's just URL text goes over the buffer I had set, I've corrected it now, it should be fixed in 1-2 days (because of server cache). --Teknecal 14:18, 17 January 2011 (CET)

Queue Bug? RECEIVED

I found a minor bug that you could fix in 0.3.9. If you add an app to queue then open up the "Download/Delete Queue" page, the app you selected will be there. But if you delete it from the list (By pressing -) and open the Download/Delete Queue page again, the name and short description will still be there, but not the icon. Again a very minor bug, but one that should be fixed. Keep up the good work!--Jrcolonial98 19:30, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

USB-HDD works, but icon download is extremely slow compared to SD RECEIVED

I also use a USB-HDD with a FAT32 on the 1st partition, with no SD Card whatsoever (my card slot is defective), and I noticed that HBB takes several minutes to update all the app icons. On a friend's Wii, I could see that this process takes only a few seconds, but unlike me, his HBB is in his SD Card. This has been like this since the days of HBB 0.3.5, and as of HBB 0.3.8, it hasn't changed. In spite of this, HBB works as expected, and code dumps are rare, but do occur, occasionally. --Friiloader 23:53, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Can you try removing all other controllers apart from the Wiimote and remove any USB devices you might have? If that doesn't work, can you try and format you SD card after you back it up? --Teknecal 10:41, 2 September 2010 (CEST)

Something Horribly Wrong

Nothing works at all as of today (7 November 2010). Doesn't function properly on 2 different Wii's, writing to SD or to USB drive. Updates seem to be coming from an incorrect server and are out of date, and don't even extract properly. Functionality utterly broken at the moment. Dashxdr 18:29, 7 November 2010 (CET)

Not sure what the underlying cause is. When I try to update Pacman through the HBB it installs 1.01, not the latest 1.03. Dashxdr 22:12, 7 November 2010 (CET)
Seems like pacman was under the folder "Pacman", I changed it back and it should work now. --Teknecal 09:51, 8 November 2010 (CET)
That fixed it, thanks. Was the issue on my end? When I upload a new zipfile, should the directory be named "pacman" and not "Pacman"? Anyway feel free to delete this entire incident from this talk page. Dashxdr 13:41, 8 November 2010 (CET)
The issue was on our server. In this case, yep you should zip it up as "pacman" but I'll always double check folders from now on. --Teknecal 10:50, 9 November 2010 (CET)
One other note, the HBB seems to scan the VFAT partition on my USB hard drive before it does anything. I've got thousands of files on it so it takes a LONG time. It would be great if this "feature" could be turned off. HBB ought to just snoop around the apps tree and nothing else. Dashxdr 20:14, 8 November 2010 (CET)
I think it's because of the free space function as it uses statvfs("usb:/",&fiData) to get the block size, blocks free and blocks total. You can turn this off in Settings -> Show SD card space & Check free space. Just to confirm does this happens when HBB first loads the GUI? Let me know if turning off those settings helps? Also is there a quicker way than using statvfs? --Teknecal 10:50, 9 November 2010 (CET)
You're right, turning off the check free space + show free space fixes the long pause when the HBB is first launched. But still for some reason there is a long delay during the extraction of any downloaded app, no matter how small. I'm just using a USB hard drive, there is no SD card installed at all.
