This dumps saves from Wiiware and Virtual Console and Disc games (but doesn't require the disc to be in the wii) Which I think is amazing, nice work.

This looks great! thank you nicksasa

So if I understand well the normal version is for legit VC/WW and the fakesigned one is for "pirated VC/WW"? But both will work to backup Wii saves ?

You haven't needed the disc in the drive for a long time EG savegame manager doesn't require a disc in the drive.

Looks good nick

Feature Requests...

- Backup ALL Wiisaves (just copy the root dir)

- Backup ALL WiiWare/VC (copy from root dir but only /data folders)

- Backup ALL saves (both of the above)

I was actually thinking of stripping down your toolbox to do this myself, but if you add these things then that would be super cool imho.

I can't play about with this for hours and hours till I get home, but can I ask what is the folder structure of the saves when backed up ?

Are they save with the same folders as on nand, the same way as waninkoko or different ?

EG: 00010001/4e414a39

well, the wad's you make with the normal version can only be installed on the wii they are made on, if you use the fakesign version all the generated wad's can be installed on any wii

like wad creator, can this make wads of IOSs? If so, can it also make wads of IOS249 (and the other cios slots over 200?). The reason I ask is because I know wad creator disabled creating wads for IOS249, 250 and homebrew (HAXX version) but allowed it for all other IOSs/Channels

Also... if I were to extract a wad of a non-fakesigned IOS using the fakesigned version, will the extracted IOS be fakesigned? If i want an exact duplicate of an IOS to install on a friends wii, which version should I use (if either)?

Cool, that makes it easy for people to look at the SD card and know what's what

Maybe instal saves to external nand would be a good future addition too (for triiforce), and install wads to triiforce folders too as some of the apps that are doing this are doing it wrong (only showmiiwads + wadmanger 1.5) do it correctly.

and, and, and

1. yes, it can
2. wel, the IOS it's TMD and TIK will be fakesigned, it doesnt patch the trucha bug in it if you mean that
3. i would try the normal version first, i dont think it will matter for ios'es but im not 100 % sure

I like one of your "mods"

I tried to recreate it but, adding what I thought would add the extra ....features didn't work.

Shadybrew seems a good idea for those that get rejected from Wiibrew, or those that get allowed to put up an app, only for the code snobs to criticise it and accuse the auther of piracy.

I'll need to give a wee helping hand over the next week (busy for the next few days) to get some things uploaded, like cIOS installers, and all the many different loaders out there.
