MLlib 1.3

by minishlink

The MLlib (or Minishlink's Library) is a simple library to develop on Nintendo Wii. Technically, it's a wrapper of libogc and others librairies. Coding with this lib on Wii is way easier and faster now ! :-) The author created this because he needed a library with he could code with easy functions. It uses GX for drawing, libpng for handling PNG, and libs of libogc...

-Proper code so that it's nice to see;
-Easy for all;
-Friendly functions;
-Handles drawing;
-Sprite system;
-Handles PNG images;
-Special effects;
-Write graphically text;
-MP3 system;
-MOD system;
-Input (Wiimote, Nunchuk, and extensions...) system;
-And much more...

Compatible with DevkitPPc r22, libogc 1.8.6 and libfat 1.0.8.
