This library allows Wii homebrew to use WiiConnect24. You need certain IOS to use libwc24 when accessing HBC data dir for creating and reading wc24dl.vff which contains the downloaded WC24 content. With IOS prior to the 3.4 update, you only need to identify as HBC, and wc24app has a option to identify as HBC. With IOS updated since the 3.4 update, you need a IOS with NAND permissions patches, since patched ES_Identify doesn't work for the second time it's called. These IOS requirements are needed because HBC reloads IOS when loading homebrew, which resets the current identification. In the tarball and libwc24 SVN directory tree is libwc24 and wc24app. The former is the actual library, and the latter is the WC24 test app. Each time libwc24 is compiled successfully, the header files and libwc24.a will be copied to $DEVKITPRO/libogc/include and $DEVKITPRO/libogc/lib libwc24 can be also be installed by running this in the libwc24 directory: make install Optionally you can install libwc24 manually by copying the headers and library to the above libogc directories.
