Yesterday and today I've tried emailing to info@bootmii.org , but I got a delivery failure both times. That is the correct email, isn't it? Also I wanted to know if I could donate a different way (via regular mail in the USA) or if PayPal is strictly the only way to donate. Thanks [[User:TPAINROXX|<font face="VINETA BT"><font color="black">-TPAINROXX</font>/<font color="green">BKW</font></font>]] 02:54, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Mediawiki extensions

Hey Bushing, would you mind installing the following extensions?

  • Lucene-search - a extension that adds additional and better search functionality.
  • WikiFeeds - An upgrade to the current recent changes RSS feed. It adds many additional feed options, too.
  • Bullet Feed - Creates feeds from bulleted lists. As our current news and releases RSS feeds do not work, this can replace it. It also gives me better control over the RSS feeds for an upcoming change I would like to make to the structure of the news and releases pages.

Thanks in advance. --Blooper4912 22:08, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Did he ever get these installed? (According to Special:Version, no) I have been working on a User:Mjbauer95/Homebrew Browser MediaWiki Extension that allows you to edit the Homebrew Browser from Wiibrew that would be nice to have installed, also --Mjbauer95 22:55, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
I installed the Lucerne-search stuff; the other two extensions seem to have bit-rotted, and I can't find your extension :( -- Bushing 21:02, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Just an update

I have put my Wii Homebrew File Extractor download link back into the Setting up your Wii for Homebrew page after you deleted it, with a new version that includes the HBC Beta 9. I have also updated my user page to have the new version aswell. Next time though, don't delete my pages without telling me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vortex099 (talkcontribs) 10:50, 26 October 2008

24c³

What do you mean by Bushing made an appearance on 24c³? - Twil

He was an unannounced guest speaker (he stole some time from the other console hacking speaker) at the 24th annual Chaos Communication Congress and made a quick demo of the legendary Lego Starwars exploit (also known as the fake signing exploit). Since then, he has had time to appear as a scheduled speaker at the convention last year.--henke37 17:09, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Blocking Spammer

Good job on blocking 'IUSEDOPENSOURCE', the idiot doesn't know how easy it is to just revert pages before he spammed them! - CCowell125

About the featured section

Just wanted to say that even though it is a nice addition to the main page(kudos to whoevr thought of that), it is kinda getting abused. What i mean is that there should be a lock or something on the featured homebrew part. It has been changed a bunch of times already and its been on for what, 2 days? --ChuckBartowski 04:26, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Continuation of my Bug Report

Sorry, but I feel it's inappropriate for me to be asked to go to another site, register there to be able to post, give my e-mail address, and have to keep track of yet another login and password. The whole reason I come to WiiBrew was so that I could provide feedback and bug reports for all the homebrew games and things here, on a single site.... And it's not like you'd have to go scouring the internet to find these bug reports, since there was just one, single page here on wiibrew for reporting HBC bugs (which is now locked.... so.... here I am). Continuing from there,

Homebrew Channel/Bugs#Bugs I'm encountering after upgrading from HBC beta 8 to HBC 1.0.2 and 1.0.3

I'm happy to provide a picture of the code dump I get trying to run Helium Boy with HBC 1.0.2 or 1.0.3 with system menu 3.3u

Helium Boy code dump

I hope that can be helpful.

I asked someone in #wiihelp if any of these games were working for them, and they said Helium Boy, Vecteroids, and Wiiero were working fine with system menu 4.0u and HBC 1.0.3

I have now downgraded my HBC to version 1.0.1 through bannerbomb, and every game on my list is now working correctly again, including Hexxagon loading correctly instead of loading DosBox at the Z: prompt.

So my issue with most of the games seems to be a conflict with system menu 3.3u and something that was newly changed in HBC 1.0.2+ Or perhaps something about the hackmii installer.... since 1.0.1 doesn't use that, and 1.0.1 works fine for me.

I also tried disabling the wiiconnect24 and that didn't make a difference with those games.

recap:

3.3u with HBC 1.0.1 = everything working

3.3u with HBC 1.0.2 or 1.0.3 = all those game bugs I reported

If there's any other info I could provide that would help, let me know. Just don't expect me to register on another site.... --Mr. Reaper 19:52, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi Mr. Reaper the above dump accures when there's a memory glitch or an overflow, I know this from programming, my suggestion is to make sure that the "data" folder and all of it's contents is in sd:/apps/helium --Elisherer 07:30, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
Beril explained that it was an issue with how he wrote his file names and how HBC 1.0.2+ changed the local directory or something.... Talk:Helium boy#Help debugging a crash dump? He released a version that supposedly fixed the problem, but I'm waiting for a new release of HBC before I do any further testing (I reverted back to 1.0.1 and everything works fine). --Mr. Reaper 17:57, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

I was just reading the detailed explanation in the wiibrew forum http://forum.wiibrew.org/read.php?21,18264,18888#msg-18888 about how a bugged libfat and changing the path name from fat: to sd: is the likely cause of these problems, but then why are people who are using wii menu 4.0 not seeing this problem? Well, at least the few people I asked said these games where working fine for them with HBC 1.0.3 and wii menu 4.0.... It just seems to be people running wii menus lower than 4.0 that are seeing these problems.... What is different about using 4.0 that causes these games to work just fine despite the change from fat: to sd: ? --Mr. Reaper 18:22, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Ok... the system menu difference isn't it..... My cousin just brought over her wii with menu version 4.0u on it, and I installed HBC 1.0.3 using bannerbomb/hackmii installer on a brand new SD card, and I tested the same games.... and I get exactly the same results: the listed games don't work, with the same error messages or behavior every time. So I'm perplexed as to why Bushing and other people can't reproduce these bugs.... I get them every time, on 2 different Wiis now.... I know the developers of these games need to update their stuuf, but why do these games work just fine for some people with HBC 1.0.3? --Mr. Reaper 03:33, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

3.2 and 4.0??

How? Or do you have 2 wiis?--ChuckBartowski 04:48, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Via the magic of BootMii and NAND backup/restore. :) I find myself switching back and forth once or twice a week to test things on both versions of the system software. --Bushing 06:59, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
XD. Nice. It must be somewhat inconvenient but i guess thats the only way, until we get Sys menu dual booting with bootmii. :P --ChuckBartowski 01:29, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

MetaFight on #wiidev

Hi there. Botty has me confused with oops-sama! So, whenever I try to join #wiidev I get kick-banned. Could you help me sort this out? Thanks -- MetaFight 22:20, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

It seems to have been sorted out. I don't know if you did anything, but thanks anyway. -- MetaFight 15:37, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Nickchange?

Hey bushing, could you change my nick to Nathan or when that's already taken to Nathan` ? Tia~ NavadeHo 03:49, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
