No more widescreen

No more widescreen

I just updated my Wii U with the 4.0 update. It was just released today. I was on the Wii mode earlier today and homebrew was running just fine with widescreen support. I started the channel again after I downloaded the update and the screen has gone back to 4:3 aspect ratio. Before you ask, now I didn't tamper with the ratio settings.

Can anyone else check to see if they have this problem as well? Is there anyway to manually change the aspect ration other than console settings? Thanks for your help.

I can confirm this as well. Some people mentioned that they installed the hacks after the firmware update and it worked fine, that HBC 1.1.2 had 16:9, others mentioned that those who already had the HBC got a forced 4:3 screen. Oddly enough, using forwarders seems to circumvent the issue, which is baffling that it works that way and not through the HBC. Will there ever be a fix for this, is it safe to re-install it via vWii mode?

I hope this is the right place to ask about the future of HBC.

The aspect ratio issue is caused by Nintendo actually figuring out how their hardware works and forcing 4:3 letterboxing for certain VC platforms when a widescreen mode is being used, and HBC's title ID starting with "L" (same as Master System VC). It's a one line fix to re-enable fullscreen mode, but there's a lot of other voodoo and magical incantations that need to be done for a HBC release.

Edit: No, we're not going to recommend use of that app here.
