PACMAN FOR CONSOLE ON WII-LINUX

Wii-Linux on Wiibrew.org
First PoC console game with wiimote support on Wii-Linux
 

YouTube Video


The Pacman for Console game was created by Dr. Mike in 2006.
I simply spend some time adding wiimote support for the game.
Pacman for Console with no wiimote support can be downloaded Here.

TO MAKE IT WORK ON WII-LINUX

http://forum.wiibrew.org/
I only added wiimote support for Pacman for Console game. 
I first installed ncurses, bluetooth, gcc, and make. Of course, 
also their dependencies as well. 

binutils_2.17-3_powerpc.deb 
cpp_4.1.1-15_powerpc.deb 
cpp-4.1_4.1.1-21_powerpc.deb 
gcc_4.1.1-15_powerpc.deb 
gcc-4.1_4.1.1-21_powerpc.deb 
gcc-4.1-base_4.1.1-21_powerpc.deb 
libbluetooth2_3.7-1_powerpc.deb 
libbluetooth2-dev_3.7-1_powerpc.deb 
libc6_2.3.6.ds1-13etch5_powerpc.deb 
libc6-dev_2.3.6.ds1-13etch5_powerpc.deb 
libgcc1_4.1.1-21_powerpc.deb 
libncurses5_5.5-5_powerpc.deb 
libncurses5-dev_5.5-5_powerpc.deb 
libssp0_4.1.1-21_powerpc.deb 
linux-kernel-headers_2.6.18-7_powerpc.deb 
make_3.81-2_powerpc.deb
 
(Note: I might have installed apps that aren't needed. 
I installed them manually. No network adapter.) 

I got the latest wiiuse and only compiled/installed wiiuse 
and not the examples. I modified the Makefile file. 
I then added wiimote support to the pacman game, compiled/installed. 

I wanted to show the first console game using the Wiimote on Wii-Linux. :D 

NINTENDO WII - HOMEBREW

A dirty way to get started
Instructions are for Linux only
  1. Create an empty folder called devkitPro
  2. Download the lastest DevkitPPC here
  3. Unpack DevkitPPC (make sure it is in its own folder called devkitPPC)
  4. Dowload the lastest Libogc here
  5. Unpack Libogc (make sure it is in its own folder called libogc)
  6. Move folders devkitPPC and libogc into devkitPro
Structure should look like below:

devkitPro 
|-- devkitPPC 
| |-- base_rules 
| |-- bin 
| |-- gamecube_rules 
| |-- include 
| |-- info 
| |-- lib 
| |-- libexec 
| |-- man 
| |-- mn10200 
| |-- powerpc-gekko 
| |-- share 
| `-- wii_rules 
`-- libogc 
|-- include 
|-- lib 
`-- libogc_license.txt 

You have just finished creating the Nintendo Wii Homebrew Devkit

Use the following example to export the devkit to your environment

skibur@blue:~/Desktop$ export DEVKITPRO=/home/skibur/Desktop/devkitPro 
skibur@blue:~/Desktop$ export DEVKITPPC=/$DEVKITPRO/devkitPPC 

Notice that my devkit is in Desktop folder

***NOTE***
When you restart your computer, you must re-export your devkitPro
If you want it to export on boot, just add the commands on /home/user/.bashrc

If done correctly, you should be able to compile the wii examples from here using the make command in your terminal.

Enjoy
