    [Guide]Wii Game Manager





    Working With Wii Game Manager



    What this program will do for you!

    The primary function of this program is conversion to/from .iso and .wbfs files

    Sub functions include:
    Adding and removing files to/from WBFS formatted partitions
    Game cover management (Display and download)
    List export and print functions
    Partition formatting to WBFS
    As of version 1.4 it has support for multiple languages
    Has support for most all of the functions of wbfs_file.exe (new functions are added all the time)
    Has preliminary support for wiitdb xml information (synopsis, players, genre etc etc)

    What this program will not do for you.

    It does not include support for formats not supported by wbfs_file.exe (ISO, WBFS, and WBFS partitions)
    It does not download games nor will it tell you where to get them, don't ask or I will make you walk the PLANK.


    Download: Wii Game Manager

    • Once you have downloaded Wii Game Manager; extract it to the desired location.


    • Run the .exe! file. It will create the folders that are needed; then start up.


    • If you want to create a shortcut you can. Just drag the shortcut to the desktop.

    [SPOILER="Converting an ISO to WBFS format"]

    • Open up Wii Game Manager as administrator


    • Click Open in the top left corner.
    • Open .iso files (List A) find your ISO (make sure it's in a folder)
    • Click on the .ISO file, then press O.K. The game should show up on the screen.
    • Right click on the game title and there will be an option to create .wbfs files or .wbfs files with subdirectory (recommended with FAT32 or NTFS formats)
    • If you're on FAT32 and your game is over 4gb, you will need to split the game file. Pick where you want the game to be created ie. c:/ windows/desktop. Now your ISO is being converted to the .wbfs format (look at the bottom of Wii Game Manager window to see how long it's taking). Once the conversion has finished, you are done.

    [/SPOILER]
    [SPOILER="Converting WBFS to ISO format"]

    • Open up Wii Game Manager as administrator


    • Click Open in the top left corner.

    • Right click on the game title and there will be an option to create .ISO files or .ISO files with subdirectory

    Pick where you want the game to be created ie. c:/ windows/desktop. Now your WBFS is being converted to the .ISO format (look at the bottom of Wii Game Manager window to see how long it's taking). Once the conversion has finished, you are done.[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER="Creating multiple WBFS files at the same time"]

    • Make sure all ISO files are in the same folder.
    • Start wii game manager as adminastrator
    • Open ISO files (listA) (all the games in that folder will be listed in wii game manager)
    • Highlight all the games that you want to convert.
    • Right click on them and select create .WBFS files with subdirectory (recommended with fat32 ntfs format)
    • Click on gameid_game title.wbfs and select where you want them to be created and wait for all the WBFS files to be created and then you are done.

    [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER="Creating multiple ISO files at the same time"]

    • Make sure all WBFS files are in the same folder.
    • Start Wii Game Manager as administrator.


    • Open WBFS files (listA) all the games in that folder will be listed in wii game manager.
    • Highlight all the games that you want to convert.

    [SPOILER="Downloading Covers"]

    • Click on covers at the top of Wii Game Manager.
    • Scroll down to download all missing covers and wait for download to finish.
    • The downloaded covers will be in a folder named "images" located in your Wii Game Manager directory.

    Either you haven't installed the required .NET framework.. or you are not running the program as administrator.
