USBLoader GX 3.0 rev1280

En ce jour de l’an, wiidev nous fait la surprise d’une mise à jour pour l’un des plus grands loaders de la Wii/vWii : USBLoader GX. Celui-ci a en effet repris les reines du développement, succédant à Cyan, et apporte depuis de nouvelles fonctionnalités plus que bienvenues. Pour cette mise à jour, on notera la compatibilité avec les cartes SD pour lancer les jeux Wii ou bien encore le choix automatique du cIOS en fonction du jeu (extrêmement pratique pour les jeux à problème !). La mis en cache bénéficie par ailleurs d’une amélioration notable, et de nombreux correctifs rendent l’expérience utilisateur bien plus agréable. La Wii n’a pas encore dit son dernier mot !
