Wii U Plugin System
Enhance your Wii U!

WARNING: THIS PROJECT HAS JUST STARTED AND IS FOR DEVS AND PEOPLE WHO WANT TO PLAY AROUND WITH NEW THINGS. IT MAY BE BUGGY, FEATURE COULD BREAK AT ANY TIME, INTERFACES CAN CHANGE, AND MANY BUGS CAN OCCUR. THIS APPLICATION COMES WITH NO WARRANTY-

What is the Wii U Plugin System?

The Wii U Plugin allows you to load multiple plugins on your Wii U which enhance your experience. For example you can mod your games, use USB controller, swap your gamepad and TV screen and much more.

Support

You can find support in this thread or on the official Discord Server

Features

The project is still in it's very early days, but it already has basic functions to play with.

  • The plugins will be loaded, even when you swap the running game.
  • Support for up to 32 plugins at the same time.
  • Each plugin can override up to 100 different existing system functions.
  • Multiple plugins can override the same system functions.
  • Plugins can register for certain hook (for example whenever an application was started)
  • Plugins inherit the SD/USB access from the loader. All plugins have global SD and USB (FAT32 only) access.
  • Plugins can inherit kernel access from the loader. The loader will be able to deny it to certain plugins.

Usage

Use the "Wii U Plugin Loader" to load plugins from the sd card. It is built to be loaded through the homebrew launcher, which can be either loaded with the browser exploit or haxchi.
Plugins needs to be placed into the following folder:
Code:
sd:/wiiu/plugins
You need to start this Application every time you reboot your console.
When you re-enter the homebrew launcher, the plugins will get unloaded.
This means it's not possible to combine this with other homebrews (yet).


Already created plugins

Currently the following plugins exist. They may have less functionalities then their "original" apps.

  • INFO SDCafiine: (no ntfs support)
  • INFO HID to VPAD: (no configuration, everything is mapped to the Gamepad)
  • INFO WUPSPluginPlayground (Various other demo plugins)
  • INFO Screenshot plugin
  • INFO SwipSwapMe, a SwapDRC clone.
  • INFO DiiBugger a Wii U debugger.

Contributing

Currently I'm working alone on this project.
I try to put as many thoughts and technical details / problem on the github page or on the Discord Server (#current-development)
So if you want to help, it's probably a good start to read the readme and the issues. You can also contact me whereever you like.
Any help will get much love!

Settings


Currently no settings are available, everything is still hardcoded as it's still at an early stage.
