    Can you convert or rip out the dol from a wad?

    I want to take the USB Loader GX-UNEO_Forwarder.wad and use it in preloader but preloader doesn't like the wad.

    Or maybe I am just doing it wrong [​IMG]

    You can probably use a wad unpacker to get 000001.app. That's the dol executable. Rename it to .dol and use that.

    It may not work. Preloader is very picky about the dol files it can load. Most of them will just crash.
    It took me al lot of tries before I finally found a working forwarder dol.

    Really? I've never had any problems with any dols. We should try to figure out what part of a dol file determines whether it will work with Preloader.

    yeah, i've tried a lot of things. Most of them keep hanging on the 'loading' screen forever, others will codedump.
    What are the dols you tried? Were they made specifically for use with preloader? (like crazy intro)

    Hi guys, sorry for bumping in this thread. By running WadManager, is it for people who need to load HomeBrew Channel directly then having Twilight hack first?
