Technical stuff

I used MS Visual Studio (I do feel slightly soiled), with the following settings:-

Property pages
- Debugging
set command to: C:\devkitPro\devkitPPC\bin\wiiload.exe 
set Command Arguments to: FridgeMagnets.dol
- NMake
set Build command line to: make -r 2>&1 | sed -e 's/\(.[a-zA-Z]\+\):\([0-9]\+\):/\1(\2):/
Rebuild all: make clean && make -r 2>&1 | sed -e 's/\(.[a-zA-Z]\+\):\([0-9]\+\):/\1(\2):/
Clean Command line: make clean

Launch using visual studio by pressing F5 - this will run ‘wiiload.exe’ on the pc & pipe the compiled code (FridgeMagnets.dol) over to the Wii, the homebrew channel needs to be running to recieve.

Version 0.34 - 23/10/2010

  • Added wheel selector
  • Added screen shot feature
  • Added a sound for the new screen shot option
  • Changed the controls a bit (buttons A and B)
  • Added clear option
  • Tweaked the way one or many players interacted

Version 0.23 - 16/06/2010

  • Added the homebrew hand cursors - combined the ones without the numbers into a single grey image (saves time on loading) and modified the look, now thinner
  • Improved the way the letters are viewed when being picked up & dropped
  • Changed the 'Bye' screen to now show a pile of letters falling from the sky
  • Tweaked the welcome screen so it’s not clipped on other PAL/NTSC TV modes. Both the PAL 576 & PAL 480 views should look the same, but they don't, more letters can fit on the 50Hz screen, when in fact 50Hzs/576 should just show more detail. My Bad.
