Sonic Robo Blast 2 Wii 1.5.0

by Callum
SRB2Wii is an unofficial port of the 3D platformer fangame Sonic Robo Blast 2 to the Wii. The PowerPC Linux version of SRB2 runs under a tiny Wii Linux distribution loaded from an image. SRB2Wii is under ongoing development.

- SRB2Wii's colours have been fixed. It is now a genuine SRB2 experience again. =)
- Massive speed boost from unlocking the Wii's secondary RAM, large levels like ERZ2 even load and play.
- Partially redesigned innards, the boot process is now completely different to the previous versions although this does not affect functionality at all. Updated to the latest versions of SDL and SDL_mixer for this release, the next stable release will have EVERYTHING updated to the latest usable versions.
- Updated the kernel to MIKEp5, based on Linux kernel 2.6.32. This new release brings mainline kernel support for the Wii's wireless chipset, and preliminary support for the Wii's DVD drive (support for both in SRB2Wii is currently unimplemented though, although they will be at a later date, and will be SRB2Wii/mini only.)
- Many other undocumented but otherwise influential and important updates, fixes and additions.
