    I've been wanting to take some screenshots in Spore Hero but can't find any way to. Is there a backup loader or other program that will enable taking in-game screenshots? The search function has gotten me anywhere on this...

    You can also make screenshots with an usb gecko, a connected PC running Wiird and a loader that supports Ocarina.

    Well I don't have a usb gecko, so it would have to be a software only option. Where can I find out more about this SNEEK/UNEEK DI thing? At the moment my wii is setup with the latest homebrew channel and Configurable USB loader if that is relevant.

    Unfortunately, it isn't. Sneek (and variants) is a way to emulate your wii on your wii. It doesn't make use of any cIOS, the HBC or other homebrew (though those can, to an extend, be used on sneek). You can find info on this thread or on the sneek-pages of the CompleteSoftmodGuide, but to get things working, it's probably the easiest to use modmii. Keep in mind that setting this up is rather complex, compared to other homebrew (you will need to have bootmii and an emulated nand as well as the correct files in the correct place...and games should be converted to a different format to use them as well), so if it's just for screenshots, I don't know if it's worth it.


    (btw @others...I've got uneek+di running...how do I make screenshots within a game? And where do they end up? [​IMG] )

    1. HOME + 2, if I recall correctly. It's very tricky to get it working at first, but after a while you shold be able to take as many screenshots as you want.

    2. They're saved to the root directory of the device (SD/USB) where the NAND dump is saved.

    Remember, the screenshots are saved in a RAW format. To convert them to BMP, you need to use the YCbYCr2BMP utility by Crediar.
