Wii Hacker Dismisses Recent Nintendo Leak As "Complete Nonsense"


Last weekend, there was news doing a rounds about a “massive” Nintendo trickle divulgence all about a Wii generation. It was believed to be a game-changer – with a user on ResetEra explaining how a information contained within a trickle could be potentially used to “learn how each singular square of a Wii” was made, interjection to a purported find of source code, pattern files and most more.

Since then, a member of a “Team Twiizers” Wii hacking group, famous as Hector Martin (who also happens to be an IT consultant) has looked into a apparent trickle and found it to be “complete nonsense” – explaining to PCMag how a files supply no tangible source formula to imitate Nintendo’s seventh era video diversion console.

Most of a papers detected are believed to endorse information that was “already” known, or yield “interesting technical tidbits” that come with no unsentimental consequence. Martin goes on to state how someone out there might find something, and might even presumably repair emulator bugs, though whatever is detected is expected to be impossibly teenager – given a timing of this leak.

Most of a docs during this indicate are confirming things we already knew, or providing engaging technical tidbits, that are fun, though of no unsentimental consequence[.] They enclose documentation, source formula for some tools of a complement program (just a tiny portion), design diagrams and engineering docs like that. I’m certain someone is going to learn something engaging from this, maybe even repair some emulator bugs, though it’s all going to be very, really teenager during this theatre in a game[.]

Martin has continued to twitter and answer questions about a trickle over on Twitter. And Nintendo continues to sojourn wordless about it. You can review some-more about a ostensible commentary in the prior story.
