    Hey does anyone know whether this creates a channel or a fowarder? Does anyone know an easy way to make a forwarder WAD? I don't really want a bunch of channels eating up my Wii memory...

    Hi,

    I'm a Wii newbies here and got a lot to learn. I have a Korean set with Homebrew Channel, SoftChip, USB Loader and Wad Manager install. How do I know my Wii is install with a preloader and bootmii? I'm interested in creating Wad.

    Try running it as an administrater. I have win7 and had the same problem. I gave wadder administrater privilages and it worked great.

    Thanks Dogeggs for the great guide. I've been wanting to make channel out of my emulaters for a while now but was never quite sure of how to do safely.

    You can't get banner bricked by a wad made with wadder but don't try this unless you have preloader/bootmii installed just in case.
    This tutorial only shows you how to make static image channels, animated channels are a lot more complicated so will not be included here.

    What you will need:

    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
    Microsoft Forms 2.0 (installed with office)

    Wadder 2.73
    The .dol of the app you want to make a channel for.
    A Wad to use as a base, the supplied 'QUIT' wad can be used as a base for any channel.
    A sound effect to be played when channel is started.

    Graphics for the channel in the form of a:

    590x332 banner - this is the screen that is displayed when you click the channel.
    128x96 icon.
    112x32 logo - icon/logo are the graphics displayed on the channel, one after the other.

    PNG is best format for the graphics.

    Wads created in Wadder are not made from scratch and always need a base wad. The principle is simple, you take a base wad and then wadder allows you to change the graphics, sound and the .dol, so you can either edit a wad by just changing the graphics, update by just changing the .dol or create a new one by changing everything.

    In this tutorial we will be making an autoboot Neogamma using the 'Quit' channel as a base.

    Download Files

    1: Put all the files you need in one folder and put that folder onto your desktop, the folder should contain:

    banner.png
    icon.png
    logo.png
    neogamma_auto.dol
    QUIT.wad
    sound.mp3

    2: Run Wadder, press the browse button and select your base wad (QUIT.wad) and make sure 'both' is checked on the banner/icon change dialog.



    3: Click on the 'Title' tab and give your Wad a name.



    4: Click on 'Options' tab, browse to the .dol you want to add (neogamma_auto) and browse to the new sound (sound.mp3), if you want to play a little tune then it is best to make a short audio clip (10secs) and loop it, but for the sake of this tutorial we are just going to add a sound that will play once, so leave the loop box unchecked. Now is the time to add a 4 letter title id too, it has to be unique as this is how your wii identifies the channel and will overwrite one of the same name.
    If you were just changing the graphics of your wad then you could leave all these options blank.



    note: The Wad exchange tab allows you to use graphics/sound from existing wads and won't be used for this tutorial.

    5: Click 'Create Wad' and a box with your graphics will pop up after a couple of seconds, highlight 'MenuScreen1.tpl' by clicking on it, then click 'replace' and select your new banner (banner.png), click 'preview to make sure it's the right one.



    6: Click the 'Icon' tab, highlight 'IconImage.tpl' then click replace and select your icon.png, do the same for 'LogoChan.tpl' and replace with your logo.png, click preview to make sure you got it right.




    7: Click 'Continue' then 'save' in the next box and your wad will be created!

    Now that you have the basics down, go create your own banners/icons in photoshop and experiment

    Nintendo Fonts download
    Wii Sounds download.

    wad exchange

    the only way i get this to work is use the wad exchange. i have to choose the wad file for all the settings. then i'm able to get into step 5 where you change the icons and banner... When i do it without wad exchange it fails everytime.. So are you missing a step, cause this tutorial tells you not to use the wad exchange.
