    WiinnerTag - Gamertag for Wii owners!



    WiinnerTag is a free feature, that is incorporated in some of the most used Backup Loaders for the Wii. The objective is to let possible for the Wii users to have a Gamertag, similar to the ones for X360 and PS3 users. While Wii don't have the equivalent to achievements, using homebrew apps it is possible to share your information and last played games in a tag.
    Also, WiinnerTag let's you choose how many games do you want to show, what type of cover do you want to use, and what kind of information do you want to let visible in the tag, and the quality of the image generated.

    Where can I find more information for WiinnerTag?

    For more info about Wiinertag you can go Here.

    What loaders are compatible with WiinnerTag?


    - As of now, the following loaders support WiinnerTag officially:

    * CFG Loader (from v58)
    * WiiFlow (from r141)

    Also, there are some loaders that have modified versions to support it:

    * USB Loader GX
    * uLoader

    "Wanted list":

    * NeoGamma

    What are the requirements to have a WiinnerTag?

    - A Wii capable of running homebrews;
    - Wi-Fi connection;
    - Registration at the official website (WiinnerTag)

    What else?


    You need to follow the steps needed accordingly to the loader you use.

    CFG Loader



    For the oter loaders you can find instructions for each loader in the WiinnerTag website.

    Here are some examples of how the tag should look:

    Spoiler



    What about some different images?

    - That's a great idea! I accept your help, just create the image with the size requested, in PNG of high quality and post here (remember, it should be about Wii or anything related! Exceptions may be considered ). Also, the creator must define the number of games, the size of the covers (can be different between the ), the position of the text labels, and all the information. Let me know if you need any help.

    Rules



    Latest Changelog:

    * added the basic compatibility with the main loaders (GX needs fix, NeoGamma still being evaluated)
    * added the country flags to the tags (still in progress)
    * added new backgrounds (thanks oldi, QKid and Blue-K)
    * added the WiiTDB icon to the tags (Thanks WiiTDB.com for the covers used in the tags!)
    * added loader icon to the tags (still in progress)
    * lots of minor changes

    So, sorry for the lack of updates reported, but they are going!.

    No worries man. In that crazy flurry of sniffing out news articles a dupe was bound to happen eventually. Keep it up!

    Server moved! - VIP users welcome!

    This is an important note from daileon.

    That's it people, it was inevitable. Half of the requests to WT was resulting on "Internal Server Errors" and "Page not found", and that was occurring also with tag updates.

    Well, I needed to move the website to a Virtual Private Server, and I'll receive a quote from my host based on the activity for this week. Next Wednesday I'll know how much it will cost.

    The good part is that now I have almost a dedicated server for WT, with no shared resources, so it should be absolutelly stable now.

    The not-so-good part is that now I'll REALLY need VIP users to help to pay for the server (I'll not host on an amateur service, thanks). Now WT is having something on the house of a million of page requests per month (that's a lot for a shared service), and lots of concurrency, I don't have anywhere to run.

    So, as I finish the customization on twitter and facebook messages, the VIP registers are opened. I'll talk to the background creators to close some of them to VIP only, and will post in the forum before to "close" them to other users. The Mii editor is doing good, but I'll need to escalate it correctly before the tag integration.

    If anybody wants to announce in the WT pages, feel free to contact me! I'm cheap as much as I'm desperate lol.

    What will happen if not enough $$ arrises? I don't have an option. If there are no VIP registering, or no advertisers, then I'll need to reescalate (downsize) WT, remove some resources for the common users, close registrations, remove ALL resources for the common users, close or sell WT at all, don't know yet. I know that my current finances can't bank it.

    How to register? Just do a donation of, or above 5 USD! In PayPal comments, say your username and I'll set your status as VIP..
