This is the release of a test version of the backup launcher. It runs stable for most games. I hope someone can make a compatibility matrix in the wiki. Please provide some good input data. Don't ask questions which are already answered. If you didn't use it before, you should check the posts for the old version.

<a href="http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/index.php/Backup_Launcher_v3" target="_blank">Please put test results here.</a>

The files are also in the signature of djtaz (see post below).

If you have problems with the archive, you may rename it from .tgz to .tar.gz and extract it twice.

What is included:
- cIOS Installer
- Backup Launcher 0.3 with banner

Changelog:
- Cinematic now working properly
- Wi-Fi Enabled
- Faster Load time
- Drive speed is still 3x. It is so fast that some testers believed it is running at 6x.
- Supports non-patched and patched Wii games (The correct term for "patched" is "decrypted")
- Not all games will work, but as of now most do.

Some parts are modification of free available source code, and are unsupported and not condoned by the original authors of it. The backup loader modification is solely the work of WiiGator.
Thanks to Waninkoko for his support and the first version of the backup loader.

Before you use the software check if this is the offical version by comparing the hash values.

---------------------
F.A.Q.s
---------------------

Q. What does it do?
A. Play Wii backups on your non-modded Wii.

Q. Do all games work?
A. This is only a beta version. Not all games will work, but as of now most do.

Q: Where do I get support for it?
A: I do this in my free time. So you need to search in the internet for forums like <a href="http://gbatemp.net" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net</a>.

Q: Where do I get an update?
A: You will get updates at my blog: <a href="http://gbatemp.net/?act=module&module=blogs&member=WiiGator" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/?act=module&module=...member=WiiGator</a>

Q: When will it support ... and when will be released?
A: I do this in my free time, so I don't know.

A: I heard a rumour that ...?
Q: Don't believe it. Wait until it is approved or declined.

Q. What does patched games means and do I need it?
A. This was used in the first version. The game application was decrypted. It is not needed anymore. 1:1 backups have higher compatibility than patched games.

Q. How do I run it?
A. Seems you don't know anything about homebrew yet:
- You need to install <a href="http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel" target="_blank">http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel</a>.
- You will need <a href="http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack" target="_blank">http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack</a> and the game "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess" to install the channel.
- Create the directory apps in the root of your SD card.
- Copy Backup_Launcher and cIOS_Installer to the directory apps.
- Put the SD card into the front SD slot of your Wii.
- Then run the homebrew channel.
- First install cIOS and then run Backup Launcher.

Q. I can't install cIOS, I keep getting an error. How do I fix this?
A. If you have a previous cIOS installed, remove it with Waninkoko's cIOS Uninstaller or use AnyTitleDeleter. Then
try to install the new cIOS. <b>IF YOU RECENTLY UPDATED THE WII, DON'T UNINSTALL CIOS, BECAUSE THIS IS YOUR LAST HOPE TO DOWNGRADE AND USING THIS!!!</b> People reported about automatic updates when Wii connect 24 was activated. Wait until something is released to fix this. More information is on page 7.

Q. Do I need the new cIOS to play games?
A. Yes.

Q. Does Wi-Fi work?
A. Yes, some games have been tested and they work. Though we're not sure if all of them work.

Q. I have a problem, will you fix it?
A. Post it in the Backup Launcher thread and beta testers or someone can help you.

Q. Can I be a beta tester?
A. You have already something what you can test.

Q. Will this brick my Wii?
A. There is a slim chance that it will. I have installed the cIOS countless times with no problems. But just make sure you follow the onscreen instructions. It is possible that someone puts malicious software on a game disc. I suggest to run only games which are correctly signed by Nintendo! You can check this for example by running extractpartition. Don't install updates from a burned game disc of a different region, this was already reported to brick your Wii, when using a hardware modchip.

Q. <Insert Game Here> doesn't work, whats the problem?
A. The loader isn't perfect. It will probably be fixed in the next update.

Q. Does it load GameCube backups?
A. No.

Q. Does it play old games like Twilight Princess and Red Steel?
A. No, but some are working.

Q. Do I need dvdx?
A. No. Just ignore it and forget that it could be in anyway related to this program.

Q. There is a online or disc update available from Nintendo, should I update it?
A. NEVER MAKE ANY UPDATE FROM NINTENDO!!! This can make the backup launcher unusable. There are better ways to do this.

Q. Where does cIOS install?
A. It installs on the NAND flash of your Wii. It uses IOS249 v6.

Q. Is this easy to uninstall if I decide I dont want it ?
A. Yes - most of the install files can be removed with the WAD manager - the rest just delete off the SD card.

Q. I'm getting an error with : DVD Identify Failed when I try to run a game - why ?
A. This is a burn media issue - dont use DVD REWRITABLES and try a different disc/drive/burn speed. You need to change the book type of DVD+R.

Q. I'm getting an error with : No DVD when I try to run a game - why ?
A. This is a burn media issue - dont use DVD REWRITABLES and try a different disc/drive/burn speed. You need to change the book type of DVD+R.

Q. I don't have Wi-Fi, how can I install it?
A. You need to download the following files with your computer:

Create the directory /00000001/00000024/v1042/ in the root of your SD card. Copy all downloaded files to this folder and put the SD card in the front SD slot.

Q. My game doesn't start. What should I do?
A. Try to change the hook type to GC in the configuration.

Q. My game has a read error. What can I do?
A1. You can try the cIOS with read retry.

A2. You can eject the disc and insert it again. Sometimes this helps.

Great! I take it we don't need IOS249 anymore?

EDIT: Whoops, saw your FAQ. Didn't see that, sorry.

What do I do with the 'source' folder? And where's the new cIOS? (I'm used to it in WAD format...)

1. You do nothing with the source folder, it includes the source code. Just ignore it.
2. You don't need a wad if you have Wi-Fi, otherwise please read the FAQ, which files you need. Waninkoko has released also a version. This is using the wad file.

PLEASE EVERYBODY READ THE FAQ!

Just installed it. Works perfectly.

Tested Excite Truck - NTSC (Patched Version). Speed is greatly improved.
Tested Madden '09 NTSC (Patched Version). Use to freeze when starting a new game. Works properly now
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed NTSC (Patched Version). Does not work (Green screen)
Spider-man Web of Shadows NTSC (1:1 backup). Played a bit, but froze after awhile.
