Hi, I've been trying to compile sneek (without DI) both using Windows and Linux, but I'm still only getting a black screen.
File folder structure looks ok and no errors or warnings during compilation, so what am I doing wrong? I have of course replaced THAT file with the one from my dumped nand.
Is there somewhere I can download the kernel (again, without DI) from somewhere?

Is there a point to still using SNEEK at this point? Doesn't the simple setup for EmuNand in USBLoader GX cover everything SNEEK was meant to do? I mean I store all my Wiiware titles in there, far more than the vWii menu allows for, as well as tons of DLC especially for the Guitar Hero and Rock Band games which otherwise would be restricted without an EmuNAND. But I mean doesn't that cover all you need that stuff for? Is there something more that SNEEK is capable of that I'm not recalling? I remember setting SNEEK up on my original Wii forever ago, and it being a headache to setup, take a long time, and ultimately feeling pointless once USBLoader GX's EmuNAND options appeared.

the only purpose is using neek titles in usb loader gx. other than that, it's pretty pointless afaik. I think disc games have to be in another format, not iso or wbfs, as well.

I was under the impression that USBLGX wasn't 100% compatible. I'll only be using the emunand for WiiWare exclusives, and Castlevania is one that doesn't work with cios emunand I believe.

    if you change the display mode it has some of the same graphical glitches like Unreal 0.83 had for example and I saw editor screenshots from one of the level designers
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    it looked to me like a heavily changed unreal editor
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    also it had some models for "mover" this and that and that is something Unreal uses for terminology
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I talked to this developer and when I revealed that, he stopped talking
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    mhm
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    probably because the engine got obtained via not a direct route and I suppose they didn't have a direct deal with epic and it was significatnly changed anyways
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but I saw what I saw lol. it seems to be still based on it just like proper metroid prime seems to be based on unreal warfare to some degree, the physics of the water are almost identical and other things
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    even if it became an "additive world" that actually was the default state of things in unreal until they changed it, and its still possible to hack it in any version of the game to not use subtractive model
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    additive world?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so yea i believe the routes point to the cancelled n64dd port of Unreal and whatever deal was left out of that, it was developed by the lemmings guy, DMA, well more like the branch that also developed hired guns(the cancelled ue remake), they got renamed to devils thumb iirc?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    yea...as in the world is additive..its all void and you have to place something in it to start..where subtractive world is filled with mass, with one giant "cube" that is a mass and you have to cut something out of it
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's how making levels for unreal work typically...but until version 0.84 it was additive by default
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    its still all constructive geometry though
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but yea..a lot of people have misconception how it really works with Unreal, they thought it was only subtractive but its not and the fan 227 patch shows that and allows you to choose between the two modes by making "new" map or "new additive" map
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    okay
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    it just does some magic with the bytes and makes it a void by default in one case where you have to add objects into literal void space and subtractive where you cut out shapes as everything is filled up by one giant cube in practice
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so the subtractive model is actually a lie, the true default is additive
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    "haha, its a lie...you live in a tunnel? NO! "
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    sorry had to think of the Malkavian Mod for Deus Ex with that talking cat that breathes fire
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    what
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    LOL
  • T @ TheMines:
    @BigOnYa would updating my CFW change any files stored on the switch besides in the /switch directory?
  • T @ TheMines:
    Sorry if what im saying doesn't make sense im kind of a beginner to this
