Ok, I wanted to start fresh on my Wii so I updated to 3.4 and then reformatted my Wii to erase everything I've ever done on it (trial and error every mod released so far).

Now I have a fresh Wii and have just finished installing SoftMii 0.9.5 and Preloader .27 but it just dawned on me that I had forgotten to backup my Miis when I backed up everything else (all my game saves and channels)

I did use FS Browser and dumped my entire system NAND so is there any way of recovering my Miis from it?


Thanks a lot guys, I know I can count on you!

You could try to repack your MiiChannel from your FS dump and install it, maybe that work...!!

If you can use a hex-editor, want to invest some time and read the documentation of the Mii data format over on wiibrew.org, you could extract the Miis one by one from \shared2\menu\FaceLib\RFL_DB.dat - the format of the Miis in your Mii Parade might be different and you might be unable to recover them.

I suggest you create a new Mii in your Mii Channel, export it with waninkoko's Mii Extractor, then extract the Miis from the RFL_DB.dat file to match the format of waninkoko's tools, so you can easily install them with waninkoko's Mii Importer.

I hope you know what to do because I will not be able to check back on this topic until the day after tomorrow.

Hhaha maaaann I forgot to backup ALL my saves. For future reference games like Mario Kart and Smash Bros that won't copy to SD is there a method to get those saves?

just search for blaze's wad packer and you'll need all the .app files in the folder, the title.tmd and the .tik to re-pack a .wad for it...!!!

It's a bit of a pain in the ass but yeah you should be able to extract the mii data from the file.......... as for restoring that one file....... Don't know of a tool to do that......

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer
    +2
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that
    +2
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
