(MAR) Twilight Hack

<metacafe>1160936/wiibrew_org_twilight_hack</metacafe> Twilight Hack You should know about this by now! This is the result of a lot of hard work by team twiizers. (Sorry for the cop out POTM but i've been busy -Ch0p)

"The Twilight Hack works by employing a lengthly character name for the horse in the game ('Epona') in order to facilitate a stack smash. This gets triggered when talking to the man next to you when you start the savegame as he loads the name to use it in his dialog or upon attempting to enter the next zone, before the man talks to you and reminds you to go the other way to get the horse."

(FEB) Johnny Lee's Collection of Wiimote Apps

Johnny Lee has been doing lots of work with wiimotes and has turned out some really innovative programs.

"Using the infrared camera in the Wii remote and a head mounted sensor bar (two IR LEDs), you can accurately track the location of your head and render view dependent images on the screen. This effectively transforms your display into a portal to a virtual environment. The display properly reacts to head and body movement as if it were a real window creating a realistic illusion of depth and space.

The program only needs to know your display size and the size of your sensor bar. The software is a custom C# DirectX program and is primarily provided as sample code for developers without support or additional documentation. You may need the most recent version of DirectX installed for this to work."
