    I have my SNES games ripped and decided I wanted to port them into my Wii. Yes, I could just use SNES9X GX and I do, but I have enough space on my Wii to fit my absolute favorites which aren't available on the Shop Channel (hence me ripping the carts). So anyway, I got Batman Returns all set, even HTML edited the manual for that authentic feel.

    I've injected the rom into Final Fight, changed the title ID and every thing appears to be working perfectly except for one VERY minor "nitpick". When I view my system files in Any Title Deleter I don't see Final Fight or Batman Returns saves. They show under the Wii's built in file manager and they are indeed recognized by the games but I can't see them in Any Title Deleter. I also checked with SaveGame Manager GX and though I can see Final Fights save, Batman Returns remains absent there too. It doesn't appear to effect the way the games play or anything, it's just odd and I was hoping someone might be able to tell me if maybe I packed the game incorrectly.

    Thanks.

    I've never had that problem before, how did you inject the game ?

    I think the program I used was Devilkens Injector. I was thinking maybe the "suspend point" saves aren't shown by Any Title Deleter cause I'm sure I saw my Link to the Past save (which is a traditional in game save using the "save and quit" option) but even if that were true that wouldn't explain why SaveGame Manager GX couldn't see it, SGMGX sees all my other saves, just not Batman Returns.

    Huh, I've never heard of that tool. Have you tried injecting using Injectuwad v3 ( unless that's what it is ), and then changing all the other stuff like the title ID with CustomizeMii ? It's been a while since I did it so I'm not even sure if CustomizeMii is the name of the program but I'm sure you know what I mean.

    I didn't know there were other wad injectors, I'll look that one up. And yeah, I have CustomizeMii, I just didn't know if it worked with wad injections. I changed the title ID with another program and made sure before doing so that the ID I chose (JBME) wasn't used by anything.

    I'll have to tinker with it more when I get home. Thanks for the help and if you have any other advice I'd appreciate it

    It's no trouble, and let me know if you need anymore help. One thing I would recommend for injected games is setting up an emulated firmware just for playing them, that way if something goes wrong, nothing bad really happens. You can easily set it up with ModMii, just be sure to say ' yes ' to neek2o, that allows you to have multiple firmwares at once, very useful if you want to keep your games organized by console.

    That's good advice thanks. What I've done is to install it to USB Loader GX's emuNAND to test them and make sure they're working as intended (ie the instruction manual is correct, the game runs without glitches etc etc). If they pass that test then I install then to the real NAND.

    One idea just occurred to me on what may be my issue, I'll attempt to fix it when I get home. Thanks for the help
    And if you maybe know of a good guide for this please PM it to me, I've been more or less figuring it from google and trial and error lol.

    Doesn't the emunand feature of USBGX save to a place other than the Wii save storage if you tell it to emulate saves and channels ?

    I actually don't know of any guides, there are some on youtube, but it's never a good idea to follow those. If you need one I could produce one real quick, it's pretty simple to do.

    Yes, emunand in USB loader GX saves to the USB loader GX emunand, but I've installed my Batman Returns wad to my real NAND so when played from the system menu it saves to the system NAND. I'll unpack the wad and what I can of the app files and see if maybe I did something wrong. I can't unpack all the apps for some reason through.

    Also, if it wouldn't be too much trouble that guide you offered would be nice

    Alright, as soon as I finish rigging the model for my long overdue brawl hack I'll get right on it. It shouldn't take too long to write it and put together a few screenshots.
