So, that list on the wiki isn't accurate? :/

Re: WiiMC problems

If I need to order a piece of hardware and solder it in my console, it's not easily hackable in my book.

Re: WiiMC problems

Xbox or Xbox 360? The original Xbox is nowhere near powerful enough. The Xbox 360 isn't easily hackable.

Re: how to play wii games?

So a broken DVD drive means that the Wii can't boot to the System Menu normally? If you can get to the System Menu through Priiloader, there are several USB loaders you can try. They all require some version of cIOS 249, though.

Re: WiiMC problems

I doubt YouTube is sending 720p video for the Wii to decode. It's pretty much always 360p (rarely 480p when the original video isn't widescreen).

Not at all. You do need one for 480p, but not for 240p. 240p is basically a clever hack of 480i, so it works just fine on RF, composite and RGB SCART. :)

Re: Game Boy Interface

I'm also interested in how (in)accurate the Game Boy Player is, as I own one myself but never hooked it up. For some people there seems to be a frame drop every couple seconds no matter the video mode.

Re: Forum upgrade

The only thing I dont like is that the font size seems to be for people who have a really hard time seeing. Reminds me of a mobile site. font-size is first set to 10px, which for posts is then made 0.3 times larger, which evalues to 13px. That's not big at all. Are you using a different theme than ...

What's this "2-3 frames latency" feature? Is it an option, or is this the expected latency when streaming the game from the network or something?

I've never installed Handbrake myself, but did you install or point to your ffmpeg installation? That'd explain it. Otherwise I have no idea.

Handbrake is available for Linux and Windows too
The Windows version is not a native application. It requires the .NET Framework.

Re: converting .THP video files to other formats?

If ffmpeg can play it, it can convert it. Good luck finding a good GUI tool if you don't use a Mac, though. Use Handbrake if you use a Mac.

Personally I use it from the command line.

Re: Swiss Nightly Build

I just said it was trying to mount it's own disc. I don't think Swiss is aware of how it has booted, so the DVD in the drive could be anything. Man do I wish the Wii & GC had a real VGA cable like the Dreamcast & PS2. The PS2's official VGA cable is super rare and the console doesn't output standar...

But why does it try to "initialize the DVD drive" everytime it boots up? Why would it mount the DVD if the only disc inside it is the Swiss disc itself? Because the disc inside might be a retail game. There are several ways of booting Swiss, you know. Swiss boot metod: Modified Swiss Booter provide...

Is Phantasy Star Online: Episode III also multi-DOL?

If cheats weren't disabled I wonder if it would be a good idea to activate the native 480p support through a cheat code that toggles the flag. Then again, I didn't have much luck with that method on PS2 games...

No, it doesn't. I had the same problem. That's when Extrems gave me a custom build of the launcher, which works.

No idea if I'm allowed to share it.
