    What would you do in the event of "no hacks.ini found" and how do you resolve.....

    Question.


    What would you do in the event of "no hacks.ini found" and how do you resolve the issue.
    Also how would you go about making your own hacks.ini as opposed to already having it from a mod pack.


    The answer in the post below represents the winner of our Wiihacks Question of the Week.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




    Make sure that the Hacks.ini file is for you menu version and in the root of your SD card. Makes sure that you are using a good 2gb SD card and not a Micro SD w/adapter or SDHC. Preloader/prriloader can be picky about what cards it wants to read and 2gb SD cards are proven to be more reliable.

    Put your SD card in your wii. Run priiloader by holding the reset button while powering on your Wii and click on System Menu Hacks and choose the hacks you want by pressing A then save your settings.

    But I don't have a Hacks.ini

    Then you will have to make one.

    1. Go to this website. Preloader/hacks-WiiBrew

    2. In the table of contents you will see this.

    # 3 Systemmenu 4.2
    * 3.1 USA 4.2
    * 3.2 EUR 4.2
    * 3.3 JAP 4.2
    * 3.4 KOR 4.2

    # 4 Systemmenu 4.1
    * 4.1 JPN 4.1
    * 4.2 USA 4.1
    * 4.3 EUR 4.1

    # 5 Systemmenu 4.0
    * 5.1 USA 4.0
    * 5.2 EUR 4.0

    # 6 Systemmenu 3.2
    * 6.1 USA 3.2
    * 6.2 EUR 3.2

    Click on your system menu version and you will be directed to the proper section.

    3. You will see your system menu version and below it the hacks.ini text outlined by a dotted blue line. Highlight and copy all the outlined text in notepad. Save it as Hacks.ini. Make sure it is named Hacks.ini and not Hacks.ini.ini or Hacks.ini.txt because windows hid the file extension from you.

    4. Place it in the root directory of your SD card.

    5. Put your SD card in your wii. Run preloader/priiloader by holding the reset button while powering on your Wii and click on System Menu Hacks and choose the hacks you want by pressing A then save your settings.

    NOTE: For those using preloader. If you are using a Mac or Linux, you will probably have the wrong kind of linebreaks if you just copy this list into a hacks.ini. Preloader needs dos-type linebreaks, so you have to use a tool like unix2dos to change the linebreak format or use priiloader.

    I noticed ,after a lot of attempts with the hack.ini file,that the solution for my 4.2e system was to erase .ini and put the file in the root of the sd card as hacks .So simple.........

    You had the case of windows hiding the file extensions outlined in step 3 and by delete the ini part the file was actually hacks.ini and not hacks.ini.ini. It would be even simpler if MS quit hiding stuff from us.

    Un-Hide extensions for known file types under Windows XP and Vista

    Hiding the file extension makes it impossible to identify the type of file you are working with.
    Hiding this information makes work more difficult.
    Showing the 3 character filename extension has no downside and no security risk.
    Hiding useful information makes no sense.

    To un-hide:

    Start Windows Explorer (There are several ways to start Windows Explorer.)
    1. Use a normal right click the Windows Start Button (bottom left of screen) then click "MY COMPUTER" or "Computer" under Vista.
    2. Left Click the Windows Start Button, then click "Explore".
    If using Windows Vista the menu bar must be present. Click the "Organize" button, then click "Layout", then click "Menu Bar" if there is no check mark beside "Menu Bar".
    Click on the VIEW MENU then click on Details.
    Click on the TOOLS MENU, then FOLDER OPTIONS, then the VIEW TAB.
    UNCHECK "Hide extensions for known file types"
    Click "Apply to All Folders".
    Then Click the OK Button.

    Hope this helps anyone that needs it

    Any easy way around this and maybe this guide could be updated to include this. When using Notepad, select "Save As" > "Save As Type" > "All Files *.*" and type in "Hacks.ini". There is no need to rename the file after it is saved if done this way. Just a suggestion.
