For what it's worth, I think many devs get by without a USB Gecko. You can always rely on stack dumps for some help with debugging, and of course you can also add extra outputs (printf statements or outputting to a file) for debugging purposes. Not quite as convenient as a USB Gecko, perhaps, but you should be able to debug a lot of errors with a combination of those if you can't get your hands on a USB Gecko (they do seem rather elusive these days).

EDIT: Certainly for your early, simpler projects you should be absolutely fine without a USB gecko

I think Dolphin can do that, but I also believe that Dolphin isn't ideal for development purposes, as there are things which can crash Dolphin which work fine on a real Wii, and there are various other inaccuracies between how Dolphin works and how an actual Wii works.

Ok then (not sure if I can mention this as I don't really know how it works so sorry if it breaks the rules) would that NEEK thing, or whatever it's called work instead of Dolphin? I vaguely remember reading that it was some type of developmental sandbox for the Wii.

Also I remember reading on WiiBrew that you could build you're own USB Gecko. How hard would that be and would it be easier than trying to find a Gecko for sale?
