Work on WiiGSC has started

December 26th, 2010

I’ve not been doing any wii related work recently, finally I got the motivation to move on and now work has been started on WiiGSC, Wii Game Shortcut Creator. Yes, Crap had a name change and WiiGSC name has been decided.

For the first release the initial task is to convert the app from Managed C++ to C# and drop all references to unmanaged libraries. It’s hard to find a free and decent converter to do the job automatically so I’ll be doing the conversion by gradually refactoring the application into managed C# libraries and finally converting the gui to c#.

Why the conversion you might say? Because managed c++’s syntax is very cumbersome and is not well suited for this app. Now we have everything in managed libraries, wbfs management to wad packing/unpacking routines and so on.

See you later, hopefully with a beta release of WiiGSC…

update 1 : Loader configuration part gone unmanaged, dropping the libconfig stuff… Next is the xm playing routine in the information screen…

update 2 : I’m halfway through it :p

    I can’t wait for this new project you have. I like Crap how it is now.. But I would like to see what WiiGSC will look like. Looking into the CrazyIntro with video.. But not sure if it work for my softmod 4.3u

    Just was wondering, if you got segher’s tachtig & twintig converted to C# already.
    If yes – how far did you go – do you use OpenSSL or Windows API?

    sweet, like this app, just found out about 3.3 two weeks ago. an love this. but i have a problem with 3rd party? some of my games when i try to make channels for them, will say something about 3rd party.an when i check the folder, nothing is in it. the only ones that do it are the ones i got from gamefly.. is it gamefly or is it this app. i can give a game list. i know smash brothers brawl has a channel using crap. friend of mine made it. but i try to use it on mine an for some reason, i got a banner brick or semi brick.(wii would freeze when flipping through menu).
