    Post [Guide] Create Forwarder Channels


    [Artwork by Robgee]
    (WiiMC + NForwarder 58 Source + Meta.xml Support)

    Features
    -NTFS, FAT32, ext2,ext3 and ext4 Partition Support
    -IOS58 for USB 2.0 speed
    -Can load from USB and SD
    -Can load .dol and .elf Files
    -Meta.xml Arguments Support

    [SPOILER="EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO COMPILE IT PROPERLY"]

    [SPOILER="Download/Install DevkitPPC"]Download DevkitPro Installer and install Everything

    devkitPro | Download devkitPro software for free at SourceForge.net

    After installation you ll find:

    C:/devkitpro/ [folders]

    [/SPOILER][SPOILER="Download libogc,libntfs,libfat32,libext"]Now Download libogc and extract inside

    C:/devkitpro/

    Libogc:
    libogc.7z

    Download libfat & libntfs and libext2fs extract in C:/devkitpro/libogc/

    libfat.zip
    libntfs.zip
    libext2fs
    [SPOILER="ext info"]
    Ext2, ext3 and ext4 partition rules:
    If the loading path is set to "apps/usbloader", it must be in this folder. It doesn't work for example if the file is in "apps/USBLoader".
    Folder and Files must have execute or read permissions for everyone, otherwise the forwarder will return to system menu.
    [/SPOILER][/SPOILER][SPOILER="Download Portlibs"]
    Download extract portlibs in
    C:/devkitpro

    portlibs.7z[/SPOILER][SPOILER="Download Source"]

    Forwarder With Splash Screen

    Forwarder No Splash Screen

    Download Extract in the C:/forwarder(make the forwarder folder)[/SPOILER]
    [/SPOILER][SPOILER="EDIT FORWARDER PATH"]To change the forwarder paths

    Open C:/forwarder/source/main.c

    use notepad

    scroll down to :

    Code:
    static FILE * open_file(const char * dev, char * filepath)
    {
    sprintf(filepath, "%s:/apps/usbloader/boot.dol", dev);
    
    FILE * exeFile = fopen(filepath ,"rb");
    
    if (exeFile == NULL)
    {
    sprintf(filepath, "%s:/apps/usbloader_cfg/boot.dol", dev);
    
    exeFile = fopen(filepath ,"rb");
    }
    
    if (exeFile == NULL)
    {
    sprintf(filepath, "%s:/apps/usbloader/boot.elf", dev);
    
    exeFile = fopen(filepath ,"rb");
    }
    
    if (exeFile == NULL)
    {
    sprintf(filepath, "%s:/apps/usbloader_cfg/boot.elf", dev);
    
    exeFile = fopen(filepath ,"rb");
    }
    
    return exeFile;
    }
    This is where you change where the forwarder will look for the boot.dol...it will look on SD/USB|FAT32/NTFS

    Usually i use /apps/xxxxxxx/boot.dol and for the second one /xxxxxxx/boot.dol.Every time you want to make a new forwarder you have to edit the paths and compile the boot.dol[/SPOILER][SPOILER="COMPILE"] [SPOILER="Option 1:Command Prompt"]
    Open CMD(Command Prompt) type in

    cd/forwarder [press Enter]

    You should now have

    c:\forwarder>

    Type in make

    c:\forwarder>make [press Enter][/SPOILER][SPOILER="Option 2:Programmers Notepad"]
    Go to c:/forwarder/

    Double Click on makefile and chose to open it with Programmers Notepad[installed with devkitpro installer]

    All you need to do to compile from here is Click Tools>Make OR press ALT+1
    [/SPOILER]

    Let it do its job,after its done you should have the boot.dol & boot.elf inside the forwarder folder.[/SPOILER][SPOILER="AHBROT"]
    Use the base wad from here this is mostly for apps that need it like wiimc,mplayerce,emulators for dvds
    Static Base Wad - GBAtemp.net[/SPOILER][SPOILER="USE WITH PRIILODER"]You can use the boot.dol and install it with priiloader and set it to load installed file and you forwarder will load whatever you set[/SPOILER][SPOILER="CREATING FORWARDER CHANNEL"]Use Customizemii and make your channel.

    Open and use base wad of your choice.......

    Title of your choice

    OPTIONS:



    Give your forwarder a 4 letter ID make sure it doesnt have the same as another title installed on your wii it will overwrite....

    Ios start up = ios58

    New dol = browse = load .dol file and select the .dol you compiled

    Nand loader = waninkoko

    New sound = your choice (to check out the one already built in the wad next to start up ios click extract sound....)

    Icon,banner,layout,animation wont get into this figure it out your self
    [SPOILER=".brlan & .brlyt"]
    To leave some more info use benzin to convert .brlyt & .brlan files to .xmlyt & xmlan so you can us enotepad and edit....

    Ok...,so what's a brlyt file do? Brlyt files tell the wii what name, size, position, and color to expect of the images that will be used.

    So what's a brlan file. Brlan files tell the wii how to animate the given pictures specified in the brlyt file. Basically, brlans take a series of images and display them at a given interval, and if the artist/programmer is good, we have animation.


    When you want to convert copy brlyt 0r .brlan to your folder containing benzin (benzincode folder should be in C:/benzincode)

    Open command prompt by clicking on your start menu and typing "cmd" in the search box. Navigate to your benzin folder by typing cd/benzincode


    Then type ".(name)brlyt (name).xmlyt and press enter

    Where it says name substitute for the name of the file

    [/SPOILER]
    After your done click on the create wad button..[/SPOILER]
    [SPOILER="Install"]

    Put your wad in wad folder on your SD/USB

    Download Wad Manager 1.7 - Extract put in apps folder on your SD/USB

    Load wad manager and Install your wad.

    [/SPOILER][SPOILER="Extra"]

    If you create a decent forwarder please share.....

    MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PRIILOADER 0.4 or 0.6 or BOOT2 INSTALLED
