Thread: MPlayerCE - Forwarder install (HELP)

  1. #1

    Question MPlayerCE - Forwarder install (HELP)

    I've installed MPlayerCE v. 0.76 that I've got from the official website. It works just fine, no problems at all.

    But I don't want to access it from Homebrew Channel, so I've downloaded the forwarder from the same site (http://code.google.com/p/mplayer-ce/...r.rar&can=2&q=), file Mplayer_CE Forwarder.rar, but it doesn't contain a boot.dol neither a boot.elf to run from homebrew, but just a file named forwarder.dol (actually, there are other two files: icon.png and meta.xml).

    So I ask: how do I install this MPlayerCE FORWARDER?

    Note: I don't want to install any wad.

    Thanks for helping me out.

    Then what is it you want to do??

    A WAD is a Channel on the front screen when you turn on your Wii. I am assuming you wish to have a Channel that points to the MplayerCE instead of going to the HBC every time?

    I know what you want to do and Ill tell you how to do it. Youll need the wadder application on your pc. Oncwe opened, click on wad to edit and open your wad file. Select to edit neither then go to the title field. Type in what you want your channel to be called (this is what it will say when you have your cursor over the channel in the wii menu). Just type it in the all language and thats all then go to the options field. Type in a unique ID (must put in one) and where it says dol file, thats where you put your forwarder.dol. Then click on create wad. It will ask you to save it, save it. Now 1 of 2 things will happen. Since your dol is forwarder.dol, it might look for a folder in your apps called forwarder, in this case you would need to start all over in wadder first changing your forwarder dol to the folder that your applications boot.dol is in. The other thing that might happen is that the forwarders path wont match up with your applications folder so it wont load and probably take you back to the wii menu. If it does tell you something like "couldnt find boot.dol in ""such and such"" path", simply write down the exact file path, and then change your folder to match. For instance if its looking for a boot.dol in a folder titled "mplayer_ce", make sure the folder in your apps folder is titled "mplayer_ce".
    If I have helped you in any way, please thank me by pressing the little thanks button.

    Jason34, thank you! Nevertheless, isn't this procedure creating a wad after all? Sorry for being so newbie, but I've read that forwarder is just a simple shortcut to the main program that will stay in SD, while wad makes the main program resides in the wii's memory, is that correct?

    Both use a WAD

    option one is installing a WAD of the whole program to the wii memory - so you never need the sd card to use the program

    option two is installing the forwarder WAD, which takes up very little wii memory, and is just the shortcut to the program on the SD card
