    Diablo build for modern operating systems

    Project mention: I'm shrarch for a mod who changes the language to Spanish but not changed anything more | /r/Diablo | 2023-09-17
  • SysDVR

    Stream switch games to your PC via USB or network

    Project mention: Better Wifi App // VNC Server - MM+ (OnionOS) | /r/MiyooMini | 2023-05-25

    I wonder if instead of the WiFi we could use the usb-c port and stream over it just like it is done in Sys-DVR (https://github.com/exelix11/SysDVR) on hacked Switch. That would make the MM/MM+ even more amazing!

    Installed JKSV saves manager on the hacked switch and backed up all of the saves on the switch. Make sure to save a copy of these game backups in case anything goes wrong. JKSV created folders for each of the games on the SD card.

    Project mention: Just received this bad boy. Seller said not to let it die? What does that mean? It’s an oled with mod chip | /r/SwitchPirates | 2023-06-08
  • hb-appstore

    Homebrew App Store - GUI for downloading/managing homebrew apps for video game consoles

    Project mention: Pokemon soulsiver from RetroArch slow? | /r/SwitchPirates | 2023-04-24

    Do not use Retroarch, instead use MelonDS (you can find it in the homebrew store or here) and enable ARM Jit Recompiler. It should work fine, but I had some text troubles when I tried Mario & Luigi Partners in Time and I suggest to install switchroot Android to use emulators there

  • uLaunch

    :rocket: Custom, open-source qlaunch (Nintendo Switch HOME menu) replacement/reimplementation

    Project mention: What are your lesser known Homebrew apps that you love that not many people know about? | /r/SwitchPirates | 2023-06-07

    uLaunch. For the life of me, I don’t understand how this doesn’t get more universal love. As of right now games load a few seconds slower than the normal menu, but I don’t even mind because the additional features are incredible. Plus, how often do you really switch games, unless you’re having the homies over it’s probably not more than once or twice a day

  • Moonlight-Switch

    Moonlight port for Nintendo Switch

    Project mention: What if I played here on android | /r/SwitchPirates | 2023-06-02

  • NX-Activity-Log

    Project mention: My user´s playtime now opens homebrew menu, anyone knows how to resolve this? I really like to see my hours of playing. | /r/SwitchPirates | 2023-05-23

    If you want to have real activity tracking and much more add NX Activity Log to your home brew. It is so much better

  • deko3d

    Homebrew low level graphics API for Nintendo Switch (Nvidia Tegra X1)

    Project mention: how do i implement vulkan on my driver | /r/vulkan | 2022-12-28

    If you just want a low level graphics api, and you don’t care about some of the abstractions Vulkan offers, you might consider checking out Deko 3D. It’s a stripped down version of Vulkan for the NVidia Tegra X1

  • spelunky-psp

    Spelunky remake for Sony PSP.

    Project mention: How do I port games to the wii? | /r/WiiHacks | 2023-03-07

    well my guy, aside from the fact that PowerPC is not a programming language (unless you meant its assembly?), I don't think what you want to achieve has been ever done for the Wii. not that it's absolutely impossible, but yep, as far as I know, if you did that, you would be the first who got a GameMaker game on here and just to be clear, I have never ported or released anything on the Wii before (which I plan to one day when I stop being lazy), but I hope this still helps you GameMaker is a proprietary engine, so my first thought was that only thing you can do would be to rewrite the game in C/C++ with SDL, basically remaking the whole game... so yeah, definitely far more difficult and time consuming than simply converting it with some piece of software. HOWEVER, lucky for you, someone actually did that before for the PSP [https://github.com/dbeef/spelunky-psp] , so if you go with this, you only need to port that to the Wii so, porting the PSP remake to the Wii would be the easiest way as it's C++ and SDL, it's not something never done before and probably the way you'll go with...
