    Witgui is a Wii and GameCube game manager for Mac OS X. It is a graphical user interface based on wit, wwt and the gametdb.com database. You will love its intuitiveness.

    Witgui implements the most used features of wit and wwt. These are:
    • listing of Wii and GameCube games on your Mac or on an external drive (FAT is natively supported, if you wish NTFS support you may want to install NTFS-3G first) and on WBFS partitions
    • converting between .wbfs, .iso, .wdf, .ciso and .wia file formats, adding, removing and extracting games to/from WBFS partitions.
    Witgui also supports:
    • downloading localized cover images from gametdb.com
    • parsing localized game details from the gametdb.com database
    • searching your games or even the whole offline database
    • renaming games with a custom format
    • exporting a game list to plain text or html.

    this is fantastic except for the fact that my computer freezes when I choose my wbfs partition.

    What OS do you have? Do you mean that Witgui froze or the whole computer, and after which operation (listing of WBFS partitions, opening of one of them)?

    I am on 10.7.5, the whole computer freezes (http://km.support.apple.com/library/APPLE/APPLECARE_ALLGEOS/TS3742/TS3742_01_KP-001-en.jpg) when I click "WBFS Partition" button. Even without the wbfs drive plugged in.

    I had the same problem on Lion ... On Mountain Lion this bug seems to be fixed by Apple. I'm sorry, I can't help you :-(

    Why you had to drop Snow Leopard Support from WitGui v2.0.4 to WitGui v2.1.0?

    I'm sorry, maintaining Witgui for Snow Leopard was just too much work. I would suggest upgrading to Mavericks, if you can (it's free), then you can use the newest version of Witgui.

    Thanks. I was only curious because you brought back Snow Leopard support from 2.0.3 to 2.0.4 and then it was thrown out again in the next release. This was a bit strange so i wanted to know why because i'm still on 1.0.3 because of having SnowLeo on my Mac.

    After Mavericks is free i think i will upgrade to Mavericks - no problem.

    I know, but it seems that Snow Leopard is used just by a few percent of the total Mac users and maintaining backwards compatibility prior to Lion really takes a lot of time. And because Mavericks is free, I think Snow Leopard will be less popular than ever. For those users that can't/don't want to upgrade, version 2.0.4 is still very good.
