    Is there a tool that converts a batch file (for copy, delete, rename files) to a dol?

    Do You want some script interpreter for Wii or just C program to do such task?

    I just want to copy, past, delete & rename files on SD and USB (especially neek2o cfg files and wiiflow cache...) I'm currently doing so with wiiexplorer or using PC but It'll great if I can just do it by running homebrew dols.

    Put yourself in this situation:
    Your Wiiflow cache doesn't work with latest releases so you have to use and old dol just to create the cache file.
    Whenever I install a new game. I have to:
    1. replace wiiflow boot.dol with the oldboot.dol
    2. run wiiflow to create the cache file
    3. replace wiiflow boot.dol with latest boot.dol and copy the cache file to a backup folder so that it's not deleted when using the new dol.

    Won't you need a batch file to do so?
    lol

    Oh dear.

    Batch files are just scripts used by Windows (and only Windows), interpreted by the Windows command interpreter. All they do is run a bunch of Windows only programs in a specific order with specific parameters.

    Could you make an app for the Wii that copies specific files? Sure. Write it in C and compile. Has this got anything to do with batch files? Absolutely not.

    Thanks SifJar I know this info but what I'm looking for is a kind of tool that converts the batch file (copy, rename ...) commands into something that can be used on the wii without having programming knowledge.
    I think such a tool will be very useful and will save lots of time (many people will prefer this instead of unplugging the SD and HDD and doing the file management on a PC).

    I made batch files and use them with Dosbox on the wii but lots of settings are needed which makes it very unpractical especially when it comes to accessing the usb HDD.

    SifJar just fully explained to you why it is impossible to have a batch file for moving files and such on the wii, and you said "I know this info but what I'm looking for is a kind of tool that converts the batch file (copy, rename ...) commands into something that can be used on the wii without having programming knowledge.", but there is NOTHING. Batch files will never be converted to run on the wii. PERIOD. End of story.

    This thread can be closed now to spare the OP from anymore embarrassment.

    Honestly man, you ask an awful lot of other people to do things for you and ridiculous tasks and such, just learn to program. It's not too difficult. Even joostin has learned to program, and if he can learn to program in his spare time then I am sure that you are capable also. Stop spending so much time asking other people to do things for you, just learn to do this stuff yourself.

    Ok Foez thanks for the advice.
    I wish I have time to learn programming.

    What I'm asking is bug fixes and improvement; I think this should be welcomed by everybody.
    And besides I don't think it's such an awful or ridiculous idea to ask for new tools and applications.

    I don't mind closing this thread too
    Have a nice day

    Yes, it is ridiculous. Always asking people to do things for you because your are incapable of it yourself is ridiculous.

    Once you learn how to program and you start having a bunch of selfish idiots constantly asking you to do things for them that takes up many hours or days of your time then you will get sick of it really fast.

    I respect your opinion and I believe that every programmer will welcome any new idea that can fix a bug in his program or make it more user friendly.
    And concerning idea about new tools, I also believe that no one will work on them unless he find them potentially useful for the public.

    OK, just look at the DML project... crediar has gotten so annoyed with people always asking for things that now he wants donations for him to do anything special for anyone.

    Most of the tools out there people have created out of the challenge or because they saw a need to make something simpler. Neither of those idea apply to making batch files for the wii.... unless you are willing to take the time to do it yourself.

    Look at it this way, if you were to walk up to a construction worker and ask him "Could you build a school? It will be for the community.", he in turn will say "How much are you going to pay me?". Even if YOUR idea is for the community, asking someone else to do it for you makes things not happen. If you want a school (or program) then you need to build it yourself.

    How many homebrew apps out there do you think were created because some dude asked a dev to make a program for 'the community'? Close to none.

    Well not every programmer is like crediar, he's an exception. stfour for example welcomed the idea to make a neek2o booter for wiiware and added it in a couple of days to PL3.
    & about DML; I don't think that neither the developers nor the dml users will not welcome a tool to covert the GC save from MC to NMM.

    I know that there won't be a program for every new idea, but at least having ideas will always benefit and never harm.

    OK, then learn to program. You can write something like that yourself. You want it, then you do it. Just stop suggesting work for everyone else to do because you don't have time to learn to program but have the time constantly post on the forums.

    Ok :)

    we can agree on one thing: "we can disagree and have different opinions, it's called democracy"

    I think you are going at this the wrong way.
    The root of the problem is a BUG in some program.
    Is it already reported? If not then do it.

    The problem with your WiiFlow cache that you pointed out was due to a single game, how about you delete it, rebuild your cache then see if wiiflow still crashes while building the cache for that game, if WiiFlow works as normal then more than likely it may be a corrupt .wbfs header and WiiFlow isn't handling it properly.

    The best way to fix a problem when using beta's is to have tools to debug what your beta testing, e.g USB Gecko would help a lot. No need creating mass thread about different things, getting people to show you how its done.

    Has anyone else reported the same error or is it just you?
    Did you self compile WiiFlow or is is a pre compiled .dol ?

    Self compile - if so, are you using the correct lib versions, are all source files intact.......
    Pre compiled - make sure the .dol hasn't been corrupted during download........

    This problem is not related to the game but to the updated portlib and will cause wiiflow to crash with games that has titles >64 characters long.

    It took me several hours to just find out what's wrong.

    I've already sent a PM to Fix94 and he now knows that the problem started to happen in rev175 and hopefully he'll get this fixed soon.
