    help me understand a few things ;) fudge inside

    i'm using 4.2u, hbc, and neogamma r8 beta 7

    i have a few questions about patches

    in the options of neogamma i have patch video = no,normal,more, and all

    i also have a vidtv patch and a patch country str.

    I am confused on just what these do.


    Also on some of the downloads, I've seen games as low as 300megs that say they need patching. Do I patch it in the neogamma options or is there a program that edits a iso and gives me a new file.

    I read what a scrubbed iso was but I did not fully understand it. Is it just the iso without the junk fillers in it?

    This is me just trying to understand alittle. Thanks to thoughs that write me back

    Fudge is in the mail

    the reason for this post is to help me grasp things alittle better.

    Also I've been reading posts about the new mario bros game that has came out. They said that r8 beta 10 was needed that it auto patches it. That is what I'm wondering about

    Should I get r8 beta 12? thats the latests, right?

    A scrubbed ISO basically is an ISO without the update partition-so it will run without first checking to see if all the installed IOSes are up-to-date. There is a setting in preloader that can just eliminate that game disc check without the need to first scrub the ISO. Some scrubbed ISOs are also made region-free-again a detail that is taken care of by loaders these days. Now to the NeoGamma settings, most of the time you need only play with them for an out-of-region game:

    NeoGamma Settings-

    Hooktype: Not routinely enabled. It is used mostly for debugging and Ocarina.
    Ocarina: Self-explanatory. You are either using Ocarino cheat codes or you are not. This setting has options for Ocarina SD or USB devices.
    Alternative .dol: Needed for certain games-less than a dozen games right now use alt.dols. Set to the disc setting enables a search of the disc for .dols and allows one to select the .dol to be loaded. Enable this only for those games that require an alt.dol to play. The "SD & USB" setting will load a .dol from SD or USB rather than loading the main.dol from disc. The .dol is to be in the NeoGamma folder and has a required nomenclature.
    Boot language: Option sets language to force. "Console Default" forces no language, "Auto Force" forces English on NTSC-U games, and Japanese on NTSC-J games. Forcing the language of the disc is required for some out-of-region games.
    Force Video: Option sets video mode. "Disc" is the default and nothing is forced. "Wii" forces the video mode set in the Wii settings.
    Patch Video: Should not be routinely enabled. Patches the video mode(s) inside the main.dol to the game's initial video mode. This addresses those out-of-region games with odd coloration.
    VIDTV Patch: Not routinely enabled. Used for persistent display problems with out-of-region games.
    Patch Country Strings: Not routinely enabled. Required for some out-of-region games; primarily needed by Japanese Wiis.


    A lot of trial and error is involved when playing out-of-region games. Try different combinations of Force Video, Patch Video and VIDTV. Sometimes an out-of-region game just can’t be played; one sign of that is a green screen freeze.
