Version 1.8 of "64Inject" is the final version of independent development. "64Inject" was the base and is integrated into "Phacox's Injector", and its development continues within this.

Thanks to all who supported this thread.



Hello,

64Inject is a program that allows you to inject games into the Nintendo 64 virtual console of the Wii U. Focused on streamlining the testing of different combination of ROM, ".ini" configuration file and base game.

Download <-- 1.8

Features

- Two modes of use, graphic and by commands.
- Contextual help and two languages, English and Spanish.
- Virtual console configuration, easily disable the dark filter, aspect ratio and display scale of the game.
- Simplify the incorporation of the ".ini" configuration file for the game.
- Support for ROM formats *.z64, *.n64, *.v64 and *.u64
- Support images *.png, *.jpg and *.bmp
- The Title ID reflects if you have used the same combination of ROM, ".ini" configuration file and base game.
- Option to package the result (WUP Installer format) or leave it unpacked (Loadiine format).
- Define folders for your ROM collection, ".ini" configuration files and image gallery.
- Use packed Wii U virtual console games (files, title.cert, title.tik, title.tmd, "* .app" and "* .h3") or unpacked (folders, code, content and meta) as base.
- Multiple options through the command window, you can define each thing or simply an input folder and an output folder, or combine (see examples).


Have the Wii U common key (look it up on Google).
To pack or unpack in WUP format you must have Java installed.
You can get the "base" games with USBHelper or similar. I recommend F-Zero (USA) for being the last version they released.


Use in graphic mode
Main
In this section you only need to choose a ROM (it can be from any region, USA, EUR, JPN), put the name that will appear in the console menus and load a base (you can leave the one that is already loaded).
You can optionally change the Virtual Console settings:
- Disable the dark filter.
- Change the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9 (this stretches the image if the ROM does not have a widescreen patch)
- Change the display scale of the game.
- Choose the configuration file that corresponds to the game you are going to inject (not all games have a configuration file and partly because of that they do not work in the virtual console). You can download all existing configuration files here.

main_en.png


Images
In this section you can modify the menu icon and the game presentation images.
You can load only the image of the title screen and it will be updated in all templates, select the year of launch of the game, the number of players it supports and if you want to show or hide the name you gave the game.

images_en.png


Packing
To enable the buttons, first choose a ROM, name the game and load a base.
By clicking on the "Pack" button you will have to select a folder where the game will be placed in WUP Installer format (files, title.cert, title.tik, title.tmd, "* .app" and "* .h3"). If you do not have Java installed or have not yet set the Wii U common key, it will result in a failed injection (technically the injection is performed, but the result cannot be packed).
By clicking on the "Not pack" button, you must select a folder where the game will be placed in Loadiine format (folders, code, content and meta).
Regardless of whether it fails or not, an injection will show the program log file.

packing_en.png


Settings
In this section you can enter the Wii U common key, this will allow you to pack and unpack games in WUP format.
You can change the language of the program and disable contextual help.
You can also choose the folders of your ROM, image and configuration files ".ini" collections.
- Choosing the ROM collection folder allows you to go directly to that folder when you click on the button to choose a ROM in the Main section.
- Choosing the configuration file collection folder allows you to go directly to that folder when you click on the button to choose a configuration file in the Main section.
- Choosing the image collection folder allows you to go directly to that folder when you click on the "Icon", "GamePad", "TV" buttons in the Images section.

Note:
If the paths or names contain spaces put them in quotes.
Examples:

First use

>64inject load-key XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Load the Common Key to be able to decrypt and encrypt NUS content.

>64inject load-base "c:\path\to\n64 game [00050000XXXXXXXX]"

Load the game "n64 game [00050000XXXXXXXX]" as the base for the injections.

Simple injection

>64inject -name "Game Name" -rom "c:\path\to\some n64 rom.z64" -ini "c:\path\to\some n64 vc INI file.ini"

Change the ROM of the base game and put the specified INI file. Use the specified name. Encrypts the result.

Simpler injection

>64inject -name "Game Name" -in "c:\path\to\input folder"

Previously the "input folder" must contain the file "rom.z64" and optionally the files "vc.ini", "icon.png", "tv.png" and "drc.png". Encrypts the result.

Even simpler injection

>64inject -rom "c:\path\to\some n64 rom.z64"

Change the ROM of the base game and put an empty INI file. Use the internal name of the ROM. Encrypts the result.

Advanced injection

>64inject -base "c:\path\to\other n64 game [00050000XXXXXXXX]" -name "Game Name" -in "c:\path\to\input folder" -rom "c:\path\to\some n64 rom.z64" -icon "c:\path\to\some Image.jpg" -out "c:\path\to\output folder" not-encrypt

Load the game "other n64 game [00050000XXXXXXXX]" as a base. Use the indicated rom and icon (skip the search for the files "rom.z64" and "icon.png"), if the "input folder" contains the files "vc.ini", "tv.png" or "drc .png ", will use them for the injection. Put the result unencrypted in the folder "output folder".
Warning messages
Two warning messages are considered, when 64Inject is started.

One occurs when Java is not detected, which is necessary to run both NUSPacker and JNUSTool.

warning_java.png


The second occurs when NUSPacker or JNUSTool are not detected. 64Inject will work, although these tools are not present, but it will not be able to decipher or encrypt NUS content, if it is requested to decrypt an encrypted base game it will simply detect it as invalid, if it is requested to encrypt the result, it will perform the injection in the base game but it will not can complete the process by launching a failed injection message.

Hello,

64Inject is a program that allows you to inject N64 games into the Wii U VC. Focused on streamlining the testing of different ROM combinations, configuration INI file and Wii U VC base game.

Download <-- 1.0 beta

Features

- Two modes of use, graphic and commands.
- Configure the dark filter, the aspect ratio and the scale of the game image.
- Support for ROM formats *.z64, *.n64, *.v64 and *.u64
- Simplifies the incorporation of the INI configuration file for the game.
- Image support * .png, * .jpg and * .bmp
- The Title ID reflects if you have used the same combination of ROM, INI and Wii U VC base game.
- Option to encrypt the result (WUPInstaller format) or leave it deciphered (Loadiine format).
- Define folders for your ROM collection, INI files and image gallery.
- Use encrypted or decrypted Wii U VC games as a base.
- Multiple options through the command window, you can define everything or just an input folder and an output folder, or combine (see the examples).

Use in graphic mode
The first time you open 64Inject go to the configuration tab, define the folders of your collections, enter the Wii U Common Key and select a N64 game from the Wii U VC that you previously have.

config.png


Once the base has been loaded correctly, go to the main tab.

Click on the respective button on the right and select the N64 ROM and the INI file.

Enter a name and if you want enter also a name of two lines.

Modify the game layout.

If you do not want to use the default images, change them with the respective buttons.

Choose if you want to pack (encrypt) or not the result.

Click on the inject button, select the output folder and wait for the process to be performed. The program will let you know if the injection was successful or if there was a problem.

Does this work with Ocarina of Time Ver. 1.0? I've been having problems with other injectors and only ver 1.2 works.

Injectiine didn't work so well for me... maybe I'll have to try this instead. I've been itching to play Beetle Adventure Racing on SOMETHING.
this is a last resource tool. both usa and europe versions of that game work with wii64 RICE. only a few minor glitches for example the trees but it is perfect

I don't know what the problem is and how to get 1.0 to work. And I don't know why only 1.2 works.
I tried using the base game The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time (official), I matched the INI file of the game and only changed the rom for version 1.0 and it worked perfectly.

Does the pause menu work? It glitches out on other injectors.

The pause menu works, however the textures of the stage and Link (which are in the background) are glitched, the texture of the menu looks good but as soon as it starts a delivery I do not know if it all appears correctly, after removing the pause the textures of the show and Link return to normal.

Would you know how to fix the textures? I noticed the pause menu also takes a little longer to start up compared to 1.2. On 1.1 the game freezes during the opening navi part.

I tried Wii64 with Rice on your recommendation. It ran Beetle Adventure Racing once, then crashed every time I tried to use it after that. Eh, pass.

Cemu maybe the key to get games running by debugging and finding out what idle patches etc are required to make games boot atleast besides this info thx 4 new tool I stripped the Injectiine script and contents to n64 only with all base revisions which is why I never shared it but u can look at my blog for those but this tool looks great nice gui too:yayu:

*Zelda games including others have special patches applied to make them work*

Oh very plush! I will be having a go at this .. ( when I get a day off .. One day...) I used WII64 & the forwarding channel ... I'm guessing I can go 16.9 . & it won't be dark... Like the old way .. I know this isn't able to do HD Textures packs.... But hopefully I can one day I got so used to them on Mario 64 & Zelda's . All the same Thank you

To correct textures, debugging should deepen the game and make a patch.
The freezing in the introduction sequence of navi apparently is for the patches for version 1.2, I have simply omitted them and it has been fixed.
I have only managed to reduce the delay when starting the pause menu and make the background is simply black (I do not know if this has broken something else).
I leave a pastebin with the INI files that worked for me.
Version 1.0: https://pastebin.com/eGyVJ3US
Version 1.1: https://pastebin.com/X9dvEnyt

Congrats on the release! This is an incredibly useful tool for the community and I'm sure it will help in INI experimentation/development to improve compatibility. Since you added aspect ratio modification, it would be awesome if there was an easy way to also incorporate rom patch files to take advantage of widescreen patches.

I posted a widescreen patch file for SSB in the dark filter discovery thread, and gamemasterplc on youtube has a good number of widescreen patches in his video descriptions.

I think it would be a good idea to cross-post the 64Inject thread to the dark filter thread as people were looking for a user friendly and easy to use tool towards the end of the thread.
