    The man has spoken

    NICENESS, just what everybody has been waiting for :)

    also, good to know about the 2 USB port thing. Here I had been believing for the longest time that GX was just waiting for some unreleased beta to be able to use that feature.

    the base IOS is hardcoded, to modify ModMii to use a different base for cIOS249[56]-d2x (for example), you need to modify lines 26933 - 26950. It's pretty straight forward and shouldn't take more than a minute, but if you need help let me know :D

    edit:
    if the new base IOSs tik and tmd is different than the old base IOSs (or if the old cIOSs tik\tmd is different from the new cIOSs), then new diff files to patch the tik\tmd may also be needed

    WOOT. Way to go Davebaol, you are so awesome. Also, NFS (or FTP) support would be bloody awesome.

    FTP is too slow when comes to random seek.

    I don't see how this could work with ModMii, since you can't download the base from NUS like you could with the Wii IOS.

    Extracting such data from vWii is not an option?

    Sounds like davebaol already has the base IOSs somehow, so after making the required changes to modmii, he could just save'em to ModMii's temp folder

    I suppose, that is a good point mike. It would be soooo awesome to just put my dumps on my My Book Live and access them through NFS though.

    My best friend davebaol lets think about NFS for a while.
    When someday this feature see daylight it might get lots of pain for regular users.

    All You need is simple service/daemon/whatever which provide:
    - list of all isoes in current directory (+subdirs), list of: filename, size and something like handle_id for every file
    - one request type called read_sector(handle_id, sector_number)

    That is all I believe.

    Well I meant it won't work if ModMii stays the same as it is. Currently ModMii downloads and builds everything for you. If you have to do something on the vWii side, you might as well just run the installer.

    that's fine, u know some of the first rev's of modmii used cios installers instead of installing cios WADs? Over time I just replaced a lot of things with the "Install WADs" step. Besides, I never once said I would or would not be adding support for the WiiU to ModMii.... unless you count one of my very old changelog jokes, lol

    Great news Davebaol. How come you didn't use the latest v9 beta? Is it not as stable as v8?

    Thanks

    Just a one click installer would be cool, something that can extract the right WAD's, and then automatically install them as 249(56), 250(57), and 251(58)

    If I release a new d2x vWii edition as a featured download on google code it will appear as a d2x beta in ModMii.:unsure:
    But ModMii can't build it properly and people will try in vain any kind of shit to make it work. :shit:
    Man, I don't want to be falsely tagged as the one who bricked a lot of vWii around the world. :glare:
    So I won't release new d2x before this is fixed somehow. Hope you understand. :)
    I think there are 3 options:
    1. Fix ModMii code to make it build d2x vWii edition properly
    2. Prevent ModMii from listing d2x vWii edition featured downloads
    3. Show a warning to clarify that ModMii can't build d2x vWii edition properly.

    Let me know what you think. You can find me on wiiflow irc channel too.:discuss:

    Actually it is a problem of ModMii. XFlak could update ModMii to skip downloads on 2dx Google Code that has vWii in name.

    Or you can simply open another google code project called d2x-vwii

    Hmmm... maybe that's the better idea. Since it may be possible that some people anyway do some fail handling with the d2x vWii release - i.e.: installing it anyway on a standard Wii and wondering then why it bricked the console.

    Nah I don't want to mantain 2 different projects having identical source code.
    It's just a matter of bases used at install time.
