Contest: Homebrew Channel Banners

I have to say, I really really like the look of both Raziels and Disenyos contributions... The stirring animation for the menu really encapsulates the kind of brewing that I failed to include in mine! Trayne 11:44, 18 March 2008 (PDT)

I like them all, but RazielDSM's animation is less distracting. More subtle and in keeping with other Wii Channels. Rokujou 11:56, 18 March 2008 (PDT)
I think that they all look great. My favorite(s) would have to be RazielDSM's or souLLy's. I would try to make one, but I can't quite figure out how to make one right now. If the contest runs till after Tuesday of next week, I'd try to make one, but right now I'm caught up in working on programming a compiler for a contest. Anyway, nice work, everybody!

I cant decide between RazielDSM and souLLy. Both look nice and really suitable for the channel --IQue 04:53, 20 March 2008 (PDT)
What of GiTkuA's? I think it looks nice as well.
-John 20 March 2008
Hmm... There seems to be a lot more candidates now... You know, what would be cool is if you could CHOOSE which image to use for the homebrew channel...
-Spykr 20 March 2008
Well, hopefully the Opening.bnr file format can be figured out, and some sort of program to edit those will be created. That way any image could be used, similar to how RomeR edits NDS header files, though this is a bit more complex.
-WB3000 21 March 2008
May I suggest to those making entries -- DO NOT PUT AN IMAGE OF THE WII IN IT! It's obvious it's for the wii, do you know why? That can only be seen if it's on the wii, it really looks silly.
-John 22 March 2008
Can we please get some way to vote on these?

Contest: Homebrew channel banners

Some quotes of marcan from IRC:
<marcan> anyway, I'm perfectly fine with the contest (we're going to need artwork after all), but remember this is an animated thing and we're still figuring out the format
<marcan> so make sure you keep the .psd files or whatever in separate layers, since the banners are composed of multiple objects.
<marcan> but remember, I want animation, and I don't know how it's going to be yet
<marcan> just keep in mind two things
<marcan> 1) whoever wins will have to work with me on the final version
<marcan> 2) we'll also need a savegame banner, tp hack style, from the winner
<marcan> oh
<marcan> and sound
<marcan> but we can make that a separate contest

Homebrew Channel Music

I just want to suggest the first 6 seconds of Forever by Savage Genius be the music, played once. I know it's copyrighted, but I think a 6-second clip falls under fair use. 23:58, 18 March 2008 (PDT)

I haven't heard the song, but I think commercial music would be a bad idea, even if it is 6 seconds. In my opinion it should be something that fits in with the other Wii channels.
I just listened to it and I have to say... NO WAY! I don't think I actually made it through 6 seconds of the song - Rokujou 07:25, 19 March 2008 (PDT)

I just listened to it on youtube, I'm not really seeing the appeal at all. We don't need to use commercial stuff, there's plenty of talented musicians around I'm sure

I like the 'songs' made or found by NEO117. They are short but they do really fit in the whole 'Wii-Style' so they are rather simple. The others are real songs and far too long for a Wii-Channel --Kaktus621 10:32, 20 March 2008

Ah, Superrob, I'm feelin' it! Candidates 2 & 4 are particularly good. Can we have all those tunes? Maybe on some kind random selection? If only we could pop a tune selector on the channel page! -Edam 05:32, 20 March 2008 (PDT)

MAJJAM's been listening to C64's Krakout, obviously. Drmr 17:57, 20 March 2008 (PDT)


Is that it then? Is there any future of the Wiibrew channel, now that it's about to be stopped?

It's only one exploit that has been closed, so it's probably put on a backseat for now, but heading forward, there may well be another time when such things are possible. - Trayne

Right now the channel is still possible --> IOS37 isn't used yet. For now just as for trucha signed discs there is no problem. It could at very least be released as a Proof of concept (I personally simply don't update my Wii). Bushing did say that pretty much what was holding back the channel was the opening.bnr format :). - Scorpei
