    Smile Help: Just softmodded need a bit of help:(iso, ciso, forwarders:channels, USB HDD SD)

    Hello,

    I have just softmodded my wii using Mauifrogs guide softmod any wii (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...d-any-wii.html)

    I completed the whole guide apart from the last Brick Prevention part (to do with: Indiana_PWNS-PAL bit) It wouldnt work (Probably my fault!) im not to concerned about this anyhow...

    I now have the wii in the softmodded state, Homebrew & Configurable USB Loader etc.. and have already copied another USB HDD using wii Backup manager and have all my games there, ready and waiting!!

    I believe i was on system menu version 4.2E but now on 4.1E

    I now want to be able to use:

    - Wiiflow (Instead of Configurable USB Loader) - Channel

    - Mplayer/WiiMC - Channel (I tried and failed) (Which is best? i have previously used Mplayer)

    - Wad Manager (v1.7 works best at the mo) should i be using a newer version? (OR MMM)

    If i can get those i'd be very happy!

    I also have in homebrew a savegame Manager v1.0.... how do i use that?

    So when preparing my HDD (1TB WD) I have made 2 partitions: 1) 880GB - WBFS & 2) ~50GB - FAT32, which i believe i can use as storage for: Wad's, Pics , Films , TV etc... (Can i use the USB HDD FAT32 Partition as a "SD card"?) am i missing the trick?

    when i was able to get WiiMC partly working and clicked USB HDD it came up with file names i couldnt relate to, even tho i put test files in a folder called "Films" I couldnt locate them....how do i manage these?


    I am doing this wii up for a friend of mine, so i want to be extra careful not to brick it hence why i have pretty much come straight to you(s) asking for help!!! It has been ages since i did my wii softmod and have forgotten alot of the lingo etc...!!

    Your help will be greatly appreciated!!!!

    so if anyone can tell me how and where i get the nessacery files I will be chuffed... & I'm sorry if there is already something there to help me : i havent found it yet....

    More Questions to follow im sure!!

    Thanks in advance...

    If u look at the bottom of the guide that u followed there are links for everything u mention apart from save game manager, which is basically an app to extract your save games from the wii. wad manager 1.7 is still good.

    Thank you, I tried the downloads again and this time i think i have followed them correctly!!

    I have Wii Flow up and running - (but with out artwork but i think i have a copy on my other sd card i can use!)

    I have WiiMC Installed and as a channel But it hasnt like two DVD's ive put in it? Also I dont seem to be able to see file names of my USB HDD correctly still? would that have something to do with ios 202? (usb hdd is formatted to fat32)

    I Guess i'll stick with Wad Manager v1.7, altho i havent tried installing a game wad yet so fingers crossed!!
    If i can get those i'd be very happy!

    Does the save game manager save space (Blocks) on the wii console and allows them to be stored on HDD?

    Thanks in advance again!

    That or if you have an internet connection you can download the covers via your loader.

    How old is your Wii? Your drive might not be able to play DVDs if your Wii was made past mid-late 2009.

    You don't have much choice as 1.7 is the most recent. Unless you want to use MMM or that mod of 1.7 that removes the music. You might want to re-read our rules when it comes to game WADs and not mention the subject again. That is definitely piracy and you won't get any help with that here. You'll only find yourself in trouble.

    Yes but you'll have to transfer them back to your Wii first in order to use them.

    The console has model number RVL-001(EUR), produced for the European market.•There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D4 on a smaller drive board.
    •And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D3-2 (v2) with no drive chip.

    I dont know how old it is, as it is not my machine. (Its a black wii if that helps?) Is it worth me trying MplayerCE?

    WiiMC shows Data CD when i have a dvd in the drive! just wont play it...?

    Apologies for bringing up that subject i wont mention again...ever...!

    also, when in wad manager 1.7 and i go to USB HDD the filenames are all jibberish, not like they are on "my" Wii (Correction: Only WiiFlow filename is intact?)

    Your drive can't play DVDs no matter how hard you try. I don't get where you are going with the WAD manager names. Your WADs all go in a folder and will have a bunch of different names.

    Ok, Im Not too worried about the capability of my wii as a dvd player...would have been nice but oh well.... worse things happen at sea!

    Can i use WiiMC for everything else? i just cant use dvds?

    I will try and explain better:

    On my PC my FAT32 partition is named clearly into folders (Like apps, TV ,Film,Music) however when i plug my HDD in to the Wii the text of the file name has gone crazy...
    and makes no sense such as: )É -VÕ<,A

    when i start up WiiMC it shows:

    -SD Card
    -USB - ă É - Údh9
    -Data DVD

    hope that makes sense?!

    I would format the card and start over. That's not normal or common what so ever and I don't know of a fix.

    What did you use to partition/format it?
    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    Disclaimer:
    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]
