Hi just want to let all noobs know about the step that the arthuor of the NSMB guide didnt include.when you get to step six of the guide and it talks about making main.dol the input.when you open the patch program youll see iso bar with browse icon out to the left.click the icon and when you get the search for file page which says Open CD image...... at the top left of page you need to look to the bottom of page and where it has File of type bar you need to click on the little down arrow tab and change that from CD Images to All files .IF YOU DONT DO THIS THE MAIN.DOL THAT YOU EXTRACTED TO FOLDER WANT SHOW UP .IT WILL SAY THIS FOLDER IS EMPTY OR ONLY SHOW THE ACTUAL ISO RAR. So when youve done this step click the main.dol and click open it will now show in the Iso bar then click browse icon out to left of the patch bar and search for the patches folder that you also downloaded and choose the patch that best fits your country NTSC for USA and Pal for every where else then click it and click open it will now be in the patch bar.Now follow rest of steps and youll have good working copy.And just incase you dont know how to find the main.dol in wiiscrubber just open wiiscrubber load NSMB iso and when you see the text pop up in the first text box under your option tabs box youll see partition 0 and partition 1. Click partition one and you should see main.dol near the top of the list, right click it and youll get two options extract or replace, choose extract and follow guide from there.
HOPE THIS HELPS A TON OF PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!
