    Hacking I'm starting a Wiki on Wii modding

    Who thinks this is a good idea? I've even got a name "WiiKeyPedia" Also, I'm a web programmer and designer first, so I know how to run a website.

    Hardware Is there a way to transfer GC saves on a...

    ...disk or SD card to a GC memory card? I don't want to manually add AR codes. >_>

    Hardware What can I use to make a multi-game GC disc?

    I wanna pop a few games onto one big 4.7GB DVD. What tools do I need? I've got a WiiKey.

    Hacking I probably have the best Wii chip install story.

    First, I attempt to open my Wii. Two screws were stripped. One screw I took a soldering iron to, it looks decent, and I can open it now. The other one I drilled through. Then, with 20 minutes of soldering experience, I soldering in my modchip. It was extremely easy.

    Hacking Tips for those with no experience.

    1. Go to Radio Shack. Buy all the soldering tools they have. Buy the 15-watt soldering iron, desoldering braid, smallest solder you can find (I found 0.32), 5-piece soldering kit. All of this cost me $20. I never used the desoldering braid and the 5-piece, but you never know what will happen...

    Hacking How the hell do people burn their Wiis?

    I mean, it's not that hard to solder the points. With a 15-watt, you just hold for half a second, then push the flux into the tip. Repeat a few times, then do on the modchip board.

    Hacking I'm going to RadioShack today for a soldering iron

    What wattage should I get?

    Hacking Shit, I think I stripped my screws.

    Now, like everyone else, I know how to remove a screw. I was find until I got to the side with the half cylinders as feet. The two upper screws I cannot remove. I ordered my tri-wing from ModChipStore and it worked (works on other screws) until I got to those.

    Hacking Does the WiiKey allow for wire installation?

    I may want to replace it sooner or later, so can I use wires instead of quicksolder?

    Hacking I bought a Cyclowiz and Tri-wing.

    Good buy or bad buy? I can still cancel it if something went wrong. http://www.modchipstore.com/nds-screwdrive...e-sp-16378.html This'll work on the Wii, correct?

  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests

    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job

    with that all your assembler base will actually work

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly

    @The Real Jdbye quite idiotic and frankly, bu
    llshit points as usual you make. Not only because you have no idea what you're talking about, but also because there is proof (both i've seen and maintained) in regards to C and hand-written assembler code, and the speed gain is simply over half the framerate.

    or SnemulDS's C CPU Core vs SnemulDS SnezziDS ARM core. The first running at about 45% (half the speed) vs ~105% (full speed)

    yeah, keep believing -Ofast will make everything faster.
