Homebrew Browser Source

January 2nd, 2020

As a fairly recent subscriber to the MVG channel, I was watching the latest video on Homebrew Wars when I saw the Homebrew Browser mentioned! I had pretty much forgotten about it which made me smile when I saw it :). Good to know that some users have modified the URL in the dol file so they can keep it up to date.

I had planned to release the source but forgot about it and the video reminded me that I should release the source so I hope someone can put it to good use. I must warn you that the source is quite bad so don’t expect to see something good. I won’t be able to answer any specifics about it as I don’t remember most of it, it’s been 8 years! (and I’ve moved on to other things)

So here it is: HBB Source v0.3.9e
And if you need the old devkitPro version with an old libogc version here’s the devkitPro directory I used: devkitPro for HBB v0.3.9e

Server issues

October 8th, 2009

As you are most likely aware we are having some issues (503 errors) with our web host and we are planning of moving servers. You shouldn’t receive the 503 errors too frequently at the moment.

We will be moving servers with-in the next few days after I’ve tested the new server to make sure everything works well.

HBB updated to v0.3.6

September 29th, 2009

29 September 2009 (v0.3.6)

Fixed scrolling list issue

  • Fixed scrolling list issue
  • Added ability to not delete folders and not extract files if they exist
  • Added ability to select starting category and sorting method
  • Re-added mp3 support (add loop.mp3 and it will play it instead of loop.mod)
  • Improved scrolling of the list at start up

The Homebrew Browser has been upgraded to v0.3.6 to mainly fix the scrolling list bug but I was also able to add some more things to it as well like the ability to choose the starting category (other than games) and the starting sort method (other than date). I have re-added mp3 support but it might not work properly as I didn’t have much people to test it out.

Also small things like not deleting folders (e.g. /apps/fceu, /fceu/roms, etc) has been added as well as not extracting files if they exist (e.g. /apps/quake/ID1/pak0.pak).

Download HBB v0.3.6 or run HBB on your Wii to update.

August 31st, 2009

31 August 2009 (v0.3.5)

  • Added repositories functionality
  • Redid SD/USB mounting method so it keeps trying to at least mount one of these
  • Cleaned up the text being printed a bit

The Homebrew Browser has been upgraded to v0.3.5. The main feature is the ability to choose another repository other than the official CodeMii one. There is only a test one for the time being which is hosted at bravenet.com to show that it can be hosted anywhere. I’m working on explaining how the listing file in HBB works here and hope to have it finialised in the next few days.

Download HBB v0.3.5 or run HBB on your Wii to update.
