    Tatsunoko v Capcom help

    I just need some confirmation/clarification here. I have downloaded "Tasunoko Vs. Capcom" from thepiratebay.org here:
    Tatsunoko_vs_Capcom_Cross_Generation_of_Heroes (download torrent) - TPB

    When I downloaded this file, 31 WinRar files and 1 R30 file appeared:

    files WS_tvccgoh_jap.r00 through WS_tvccgoh_jap.r29 -> 30 files
    WS_tvccgoh_jap.r -> 1 file
    WS_tvccgoh_jap.r30 -> 1 file
    32 files in all

    I'm not sure what to do with all these files to get the game to play.

    A little info about my wii system:
    - firmware 3.2u
    - Backup Loader Gamma with 002 Fix Built in installed
    - I softmodded my wii using the twilight hack and I have Homebrew channel with Wad manager already
    - I also have Gecko os and ocarina in my HB channel

    I have already successfully downloaded a game torrent from demonoid and got it to play on my wii via the backup loader channel. I downloaded the iso and burn it directly to a verbatim -r dvd at 4x speed and it works fine now. I'm not sure how to get this to work since there are so many files. I have searched this forum and other sites via google. I found some threads discussing this but I still don't get it exactly.
    http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...i-softmod.html
    http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...odded-wii.html <- here's two random thread amongst the other threads I was reading but I still don't understand what to do

    P.S. - I have also downloaded Mario Tennis and it's the same scenario as this. Once I understand how to do this, I will apply it to Mario tennis as well.

    That's how alot of games are. There is usually a main file with no number after it. You can extact that with WinRar and all of the other ones will exract too into one big file.

    focus on files WS_tvccgoh_jap.r00 through WS_tvccgoh_jap.r29 -> 30 files

    1. click anyone xxxx.rar file in the list (e.g. WS_tvccgoh_jap.r01),
    2. WinRAR will be opened
    3. click the Up Arrow in WinRAR (ie. to include all xxxx.rar files into WinRar window )
    4. WinRar--> File --> Select All --> tool bar EXTRACT TO --> select the destination folder for iso --> start to unzip
    5. key in password, if required (ie. not always )
    6. unzip 4.5 GB ISO file, abt 13 minutes
    7. upon completion, read at Win-XP, u find file size 4589824KB.
    8 bingo !

    actually, after I extract the iso file, normally I am supposed to burn that file directly to a verbatim -r dvd via imgburn on 4x speed and play it via the backup loader channel, correct? this is the case if the game is ntsc-u. However, Tatsunoko is NOT ntsc-u therefore what is the process to get it to play on my 3.2u ntscu wii? I think Tatsunoko is a japan region file but i'm not sure since it's not listed in the download file I posted above. the only thing that's listed in the link is that it is a "JAP" file. (whatever that means...) Some people have recommended using Gecko 1.07b to get the game to load but I want to be exactly sure of what I need to do. (i.g. what to do once gecko is loaded, settings, etc.)

    How do you know what a file is if it's not listed in the download instructions? for wad files, you can tell by using the wad "region converter" tool but what about game files. this is important since you should only play games on your wii that match your region UNLESS you use a workaround to bypass this such using gecko os.

    Its only dangerous if you accept an update from an out of region disc, that won't happen as you're using the gamma loader. Try it and see if it works.

    Ok, i'm just going to burn the iso file to a disc as normal then.

    On a similar note, I downloaded some WAD game files from this page:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/games-homebr...al-wads-2.html

    I installed them via wad manager as usual but ALL of showed as some donkey kong 2 game file. Now get this, when I put the cursor over the game with my wii remote, the title of the correct wad game file showed up. Strange, huh?! My problem here is that the wad game file won't load up. when i click start game, it goes to a black screen and stays there. Nothing happens at all. I have to unplug my wii from the socket and restart it that way to get the wii to start again. The wad files in that link said that the games were PAL. Despite this, I downloaded them anyway and I took a look at them in the WAD region changer application. It stated that the files are all REGIONFREE. So, what is going on here? What do I have to do to get these game wad files to play correctly on my wii?

    They show up as DK because they are home made by injecting a different rom into the DK wad, I've got a couple and they don't work either! God knows why? If you must play old games then use an emulator: Genesis/Megadrive or SNES

    I also have a guide that made of note of concerning emulators on the wii:
    How To: Play NES and SNES games on your Wii. - TehSkeen.com

    Are the two files listed in the above link the same two files you list here? ( FCE Ultra GX and SNES9X GX) Please correct if I'm wrong here in my planned proceedings. -> I should simply follow the instructions in the guide in the link above.

    Regarding ROMs, the poster in the link above stated

    "ROMs (I will not tell you how to get these, and they must be games you legally own.)"

    I assume that when he says "ROMs" he means "wad files", right? This is a bit confusing since there are two emulators. How will I know which game file to load with which emulator? Well, I could notate which games go with which system for every game I put on my sd card but that seems tedious. Has to be an easier way.

    ------------

    I got the Capcom v Tatsunoko japanese game to work on my wii, so that's good. Accomplishing this is really awesome to me. Personally I would love to be able to somehow play any version of korean PIU or the japanese versions of DDR on my wii. I really hate the USA versions of DDR and PIU, the music soundtracks are horrible <- sorry for posting this off-topic information but i tend to think out load at times

    Those two i linked are the ones you mentioned but in channel form. Roms used by emulators are not wads! SNES roms typically have file extension .smc ie 'Magic Sword (U).smc' whilst Genesis roms are usually .bin ie 'Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (U) [h4].bin' you won't get them muddled up because they have to go in separate folders on your SD card. There are lots of rom sites on the net, google is your friend

    since you used the words "typically" and "usually" in reference to snes roms have .smc extensions and genesis roms having .bin extensions, can safely I assume that what you're implying is that there will or rather should be explicit instructions clearing listing what folder to put the rom file(s) in on my sd card, right? If it's not set up like that, then I should inquire here if I can't find a solution on google.

    so regarding the injected wad game files that I downloaded from wiihacks here:

    http://www.wiihacks.com/games-homebr...al-wads-2.html

    Do I just delete them all? I have a lot of games on my sd card and most of them are NOT from the link above however the games that aren't working that I downloaded from the above link are all mixed together with the other wad game files that are working properly. Like I said earlier, all of the injected files were listed as regionfree in the wad converter application as opposed to being listed as ntsc. Should I just delete all files that show up as regionfree in the wad converter application? (i'm guessing that if a wad file is regionfree then i should immediately delete it)
