    If using the old version you need to use an iso. If you use the latest version V3,3b(link on first page) you can select iso or wbfs. Then choose a loader.

    Hi. That seemed to take care of it. I think the file at the link "here" is to teh 2.1 version.

    But I did hit one other problem...tried to open bootmii to get to the wad manager...but suddenly bootmii doesn't open!! I'm pretty sure I used bootmii to install the wads when I went through the modding process. What am I doing wrong?

    Yes I know, noob question...but I'm still a noob.

    You can use Multi Mod manager or wad manager to ionstall wads. Best to use one of those apps.
    You may have had cboot2 booting wad manager from bootmii at first, but you should have removed that setup after your softmod was complete.

    Thanks wiijohn. I'll try the wad managers you recommended. One question on the cboot2...do I need to remove it before installing the other? How exactly do I remove it? Also, (if I can press my luck with one more question...), I'm assuming I will find the wad managers you mentioned via the home brew browser?

    Thanks for all the help!

    You can leave cboot2 on your SD card, and add MMM and Wad Manger to your apps.
    To remove it, there should be a boot.dol and a startup.elf on your SD\root, delete those.
    The bootmii files you saved when you installed bootmii and did your backup should still be on your SD card, when you press home in HBC you should get the bootmii screen. Make sure you have that still working.
    Search for the apps, Google is your friend.

    Ca Crap v3.3b on Windows 7 gives me an error... and it never used to.

    Crap v3.3b gives error "can't list the files in WBFS file! Check if you have wbfs_file.exe under 3rd party folder!" it is, and there was one copy on the desktop, but it was a diffrent size. What gives? I removed and re-installed it, and it did give the message "since this is the 1st time..." so I know it was defaulted, unless there is a registry entry I'm forgetting. I'll try this on my notebook to see if my desktop is acting up.

    **** FIXED ****

    Seems by default crap was supposed to have UAC admin rights... In this case it did not. I elevated priviledges for wbfs_file.exe and crap.exe and that has resolved the "wbfs_file.exe file missing" error I was getting.

    I suppose that's true for XP, and Vista as well...

    hi. i've tried this. the channels appear on my wii menu. when i try opening the game it gives an error about no fat. i have my games stored as wbfs files in a wbfs folder on my fat32 hard drive. i dont know what the problem is because if i open it from cfg loader the games open.

    I had to do some trial and error with this to find some working settings, so I thought I'd share what has worked for me. Here are some settings that worked for me with this configuration:







    • Plug Wii drive into the pc
    • Choose File->View WBFS Drive
    • Choose "Select drive letter", then hit refresh.
    • Choose game to make forwarder for
    • Click "Use for Channel Creation"
    • Setup options as above.
      • Note, I use CIOS250, you may choose whatever works for you.
      • Following mauis guide exactly will prevent use of 249 for fat32 (as it is rev17 which is not fat32 compatible

    • Copy the Wad to the /wads directory on fat32 drive.
    • Use Wad Manager 1.7 to install to wii

    Good luck!

    -Blu

    Note: Messing with Wads has some inherent danger. Please make sure you've taken all necessary precautions before attempting this.
