18 Wii homebrew updates

I’ve updated a bunch of my homebrew programs. There have been no actual gameplay changes, but like the last couple things I released for Wii (Wii Chatter v0.3 and They Do Not Die 2 v0.9) they have a newer home menu and have all been compiled with more up to date libraries so a ton of bugs have been corrected (newer wiimotes for example are now compatible).

You can finally vote in polls (as long as you have an account) and you can read and post comments in the homebrew database (there is a page for each of my homebrew projects). 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.

What is NOT included in the pack (AKA my updated to do list):

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 So you will be able to find out if you are using an outdated version or if something cool has happened without needing to go to the network section of the home menu.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

Wii homebrew reuploads

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.

Source code and updates

EDIT: A more recent upload of the source code + PSL1GHT can be found here.

Here are freshly compiled copies of everything I’ve ever released for PS3 since I began using PSL1GHT (with the exclusion of Avoidance which I’m just going to pretend I never ported). Many of them have been updated but mostly in fairly trivial ways. The player turns to face the direction they are moving in Gambol, one of the levels in Swingball 2 has been remade, Goodbye World has been largely rewritten but should look and play the same as before, The Unmapped Forest has an added title screen, etc.

Cascade Beneath v1.1
Cherophobe v1.0
Cylinder Dodge v1.0
Dont Get Crushed v1.2
Gambol v0.2
Goodbye World v1.1
Hero City v0.5
Maze Generator v1.3
Neo Tanks v0.2
Sketch Fight v0.3
Slime Roll v0.3
Swingball 2 v0.4
The Unmapped Forest v0.3
They Do Not Die 2 v0.7
We Are Nowhere v0.2
Winters End v1.0

Perhaps more significantly, I have uploaded the up to date source code for all of it. You can download the archive here or here. It’s worth noting that it is just the source code for my projects. If you want the old copy of PSL1GHT that I’ve been using to compile things then you can get that here.

I’ll be taking a short break now from PS3 homebrew. There are some Wii things I want to work on. I’ll probably/possibly/maybe be done in a couple weeks. Let me know what you would like me to give priority to once I am.

Winters End v1.0 – PS3

In Winters End you take control of a snow person that moves around collecting snow.

It was originally rushed together for Wii as an entry in the Drunken Coders 2010 Winter Competition in which the judges stated that it “Would have been drastically improved with the addition of some enemies to thwart what was otherwise a so-simple-it-got-dull-fast game. Great work and very smooth accelerometer controls.” and ranked it as fifth place out of five entries.

This new PS3 port keeps that “so-simple-it-got-dull-fast” gameplay intact well removing the smooth motion controls along with the music and bringing that once flawless framerate down to a choppy mess that can be compared to a slideshow.

So have fun with that!

I really think muny21 will appreciate this release.

PS3 controls:
Left analog stick = Move
Right analog stick = Turn camera

Winters End v1.0 – Wii & Windows

Video provided by Cid2Mizard from NintendoMax.

The entries for the Drunken Coders Competition have been posted. There where four entries for DS but it it turns out Winter’s End was the only thing submit for Wii.

Winter’s End is a simple winter themed game. You play as a snow person who is very slowly melting away. You can move around the map and collect snow to make yourself larger. When there is no snow left in the area you taken to the next level and when you complete the tenth level it will loop back to the first.

In the Wii version your movements are motion controlled (hold the wiimote sideways like an NES controller and tilt it in the direction you want to go) and you use the directional pad to turn the camera.

In the PC version you use the WASD or arrow keys to move and the camera spins depending on where in the window the mouse cursor is located.

The background music used in this game is After Winter Dreams by Click.
