So click that network button in the bottom right corner of the home menu and go discuss and vote on some junk. The actual site (the version you get when you visit it with a regular web browser) has gotten a few small updates tonight too.

32 included and 22 excluded adding up to a total of 55 Wii homebrew projects. I have a tendency to start random things and then quickly abandon them when I lose interest. But I’m going to try and stick to these 55 projects.

15 Wii homebrew updates

Wii Chatter’s keyboard defaults to lowercase and has a caps lock button. Avoidance and Hero City 2 (the nightmare mode) both have added leaderboards that work just like Cherophobe’s does. Winter’s End is a bit more efficient (not that it makes any difference).

All of them have a new home menu. I rewrote a lot of it and added and changed a lot in the process.

The network browser thing has a built in on screen keyboard (just like the one in Wii Chatter). So now you can use it to post things on people’s user pages and in the future you will be able to send private messages and even register an account without needing to actually visit the site.

There is also a little news window next to the main home menu. So you will be able to find out if you are using an outdated version or if something cool has happened without needing to go to the network section of the home menu.

The new sprite sheet / texture it uses is half the size it was previously (which was already smaller than it was not too long ago) so that’s good for technical reasons. The buttons and things are designed in a way that allows me to put them closer together and thus fit more on screen. I’ve even got it setup so I can use different colors of text. I’m not crazy about the way it all actually looks though. I’ll probably change the color pallet later and maybe make it customizable.

Avoidance v1.3
Cherophobe v1.2
GoodbyeWorld v1.3
GravityGlide v1.4
HeroCity2 v1.4
MazeGenerator v1.5
PineappleApocalypseRPG v1.3
RevoltOfTheBinaryCouriers v1.3
SketchFight v0.4
ThreePointO v1.3
UFORacer v3.5
WeAreNowhere v0.4
WiiChatter v0.2
WiiExhibit v0.4
WintersEnd v1.2

Revolt Of The Binary Couriers v1.2 – Wii

Revolt Of The Binary Couriers is the sequel to Pineapple Apocalypse RPG and much like the latest release of that this update fixes the speed of the background music (Aeroplanes by Nanodrone) and makes it so that selecting load when there is no game save will start a new game.

You’ve probably noticed that a LOT of the links around here have died. To rectify that I’ve begun uploading all of my stuff to PlatonicRobot. You can now go there to find the most recent versions of everything I’ve ever released for Wii.

Revolt Of The Binary Couriers v1.1 – Wii & Windows

Heres an update to Revolt Of The Binary Couriers (the sequel to Pineapple Apocalypse RPG).

First of all its gotten all of the same improvements that I made in the recent update to its predecessor. Improved frame rate, classic controller support, bug fixes, repositioned text boxes, background music (once again Aeroplanes by Nanodrone) and a slightly improved home menu.

I also fixed it up in a few other ways. The pause menu now has an option to start a new game. You can bring up the pause menu at any time now (even during combat although the option to save is disabled during fights). There are also a few new enemies.

Pineapple Apocalypse RPG v1.1 – Wii & Windows

Pineapple Apocalypse RPG was the first homebrew program I ever publicly released for Wii and an update has been long overdue for it. So here it is.

The frame rate is twice what it was (it now runs at a smooth 60 frames per second). You can now optionally play the game using a classic controller. I fixed the bug that caused the game to freak out whenever a non mutated pineapple attacked you. I fixed two tiles on that map that where not being rendered. The text boxes have been repositioned slightly away from the top and bottom of the screen to ensure that they are fully visible. I added a text box to remind you which button was to save and which is to load (I always got them confused). I added background music (Aeroplanes by Nanodrone). The game also now has a home menu just like all my more recent games.

The home menu is actually slightly improved from how it was in my last few games. You can now bring it up using a classic controller and even move the cursor and click any of the buttons using a classic controller and I got it working without it interfering when you want to use the cursor with the wiimote ir sensor. The background blur has been slightly tweaked and now the image even gets a bit brightened and dulled. With the PC version the filtering effect smoothly transitions but I’m still not happy with how smoothly it works on Wii (the frame rate dips a bit) so on Wii the effect is still simply either on or off. I doubt its noticeable but the frame rate has been improved for the home menu, as well. It was in the 50s and its now at the intended 60 frames per second.

Something worth ignoring

I had started a third Pineapple Apocalypse RPG game which I had decided on titling The Kludge Of Meatspace and it was going to be browser based and made using Java Script and a few HTML5 elements. I’m posting it in its horrifically incomplete state because I don’t really plan on working on it anymore. At the least not in the foreseeable future. I’ve lost some of the interest I had in browser based stuff and I’m focusing more on Wii homebrew again. But its really not worth bothering with.

It reuses the map from Revolt of the Binary Couriers. The walking animation isn’t in place. there are no NPCs. There is nothing in the environment that you can interact with. The combat system isn’t properly setup. There is no leveling. The way the game screen is scaled up (at least the way firefox handles it) make it look blurry instead of pixelated. the game doesn’t seem to work unless you refresh the page once (I think its a problem with loading the images). The way it decides your starting position based on your real world geographical position isn’t fully setup and doesn’t work properly/consistently.

its really not worth bothering with.
