Discussion in 'Wii - Backup Loaders' started by AbdallahTerro, Oct 29, 2012.
Updated first post - sneek files removed.
Keeping things legal here
Oh crap, What was illegal? I downloaded a copy a few days back I think?
784 legal pack (No Neek files) plugin freezes fixed when too many inis and games are there
WARNING! Spoilers inside!
OP now updated to rev 784 legal pack
changelog: fixed plugin selection from source menu when toooooooooooo many roms and plugins are present
precompiled sneek and quadforce binaries.
Users should be downloading those files from their corresponding homepages and compiling them at home.
I'll try to make legal workaround for this such as including the elf files and a neek builder something similar to what modmii does.
more news later
WiiFlow v4.0.4 Final v434 r792 Pack - The Masterpiece Legal Edition Download Link + Setup instructions: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?9fvr8e6o80f93d3
Updated WF to 4.0.4 Final
Updated GenPlusGX and Not64 dols to latest version
Removed Sneek, DiosMios, Devo Stuff for legal issues
*First things first: For proper function of Wii games and Homebrew apps: Make sure your Wii is properly modded and use ModMii to make your IOS/cIOS up to date. IOS 58, D2x cIOS v8 Final or 9beta are recommended. Original Hermes or Rodries cIOS mod are optional.
For Gamecube Games: DiosMios/DiosMios Lite latest wad should be installed into the Mios slot along with clean BC6. Devolution loader in \Wiiflow folder should be there for Devo to work.
Everything mentioned above is not in the legal pack.
Get Neek2o files rev95 using ModMii/Sneek Builder
Get Latest Dios Mios 2.5 Files wads, Bins and app files from official website: http://code.google.com/p/diosmios/wiki/Downloads?tm=2
Get Devolution loader bin and HB app from official page: http://gbatemp.net/threads/devolution-public-release.330554/
*Extract/copy all files to SD or USB root (sneek folder on USB only)
*Backup your “\WiiFlow\Settings\categories_v4.ini” and “\WiiFlow\Source_Menu\source_menu.ini” files in case you have made your favorites/categories and a custom plugin setup before or if you don’t want to use the ones provided here
*Install wads with a wad manager: WiiFlow Forwarder and WiiFlow loader channel v2 to all nands, neek2o to real nand, back to nand to Emunands.
*Carbonik Abz will be available in settings > theme selection
*Use ModMii to create an EmuNand on PC and cert.sys_extractor on Wii using Homebrew channel to get your “cert.sys” then copy it from SD root to EmuNand\Sys folder
*Edit individual plugin ini files to change the default Rom/game path if needed or just rename your rom folders as shown here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?wwp26brxxex2wlu
*Extract and replace Source_menu.ini from the zip file in case you want to switch from Advanced to Basic
Tip: If Wiiflow hangs/or is stuck loading boot animation endlessly when going to Emumode (All Plugins selected), then you have too much games!!!
So move some ini files to "unused" folder inside \WiiFlow\Plugins folder.
Since many games are displayed twice or even more times you can move the ini files for emus that run same games/systems like vbanext&gambatte and keep the one you use i.e. vbagx for example.
It might take some trial and error but when you're below the memory limit all should work fine.
The cover display limit is theoretically around 65535 covers, but WF is currently unable to handle that much due to memory overload
Another Tip: Black screens when launching an Emu game are mainly due to wrong dol name or gamepath in the plugin ini file or mismatch of magic numbers between the source_menu and plugin.ini. But also you have to keep in mind that some emulators work better from SD, others from USB first active Fat partition so make sure you look into this when you face problems.
Also don't forget to delete your old \WiiFlow\Cache\lists folder and \Wiiflow\Settings\gameconfigXX filesand even sometimes \apps\wiiflow\wiiflow.ini file.
Tip 3: when facing problems going back to WiiFlow or to Emunand or when the HDD is not initialized on startup, make sure you have the latest v14b forwarder and v2 hidden loader wads installed, if you use your own custom forwarder make sure it has the default ID4 as the official forwarder.

french.ini file corresponds to the revision r693 and not the last r726 or WiiFlow r432.
I will be all over this once the kiddies are in bed :-)
Just wondering though as I am a few days behind in my reading, should I be on the LATEST HB channel now too or is is more tailered for the Wii-U? Can't recall off hand what version I'm even on now actually lol Anywho cheers for the compilation as always
you can stay on old HBC, however since 1.1.2 fixed the missing icons bug I updated yesterday
yeah actually the launguage pack need to be updated, can I just grab it from svn?
Yes, there has been no change since the r726 - r432
this is the latest languages pack straight from svn: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?5axnxmi26ngngg5
keep in mind many inis are still not up to date as shown below:
These languages are no longer maintained by their authors.
OP updated to R813 aka 4.0.5 final
Abdallah I have to set the wiiflow to use the custom missing covers? Its not showiing for me. The files of missing covers is in JPG. It´s OK?
The custom missing covers in my pack are made for "Carbonik_Abz" Theme which is also included in the pack, you just need to select it from the settings.
If you want to use those covers in another theme you need to edit the last part of the theme.ini by adding the cover lines.
JPG is recommended here.
For default theme the cover names should be renamed to magicnumbers only in jpg format as well.
Hope this helps
love your efforts on this , but i rofl everytime i see your pack names .. man sort em out. :p
Separate names with a comma.
