    Same here, since this is not a game I don't see why GBATemp could not host this file.

    It decodes the files that Datel charge for. They are protecting their intellectual property by encoding their files, therefore decrypting it without paying for it is illegal, and that is why GBAtemp cannot host this file.

    Then what about RAWdump for example? Which encodes Nintendo's .wii decryption to .iso files?

    That's a tool to do the decrypting. The existence of the code isn't illegal, although the execution of it is. That's probably the difference.

    Ah, actually it's no different. I thought this was a collection of the decrypted power saves, but it's not. It's the decrypter itself. Should be just as valid to host as Rawdump.

    Second edit, I guess the pack contains 200 saves, so that is the reason why. Can we host just the tool though without the saves?

    tool would be useful, as I can't see it with my weak google-fu (perhaps newsgroups are best for this).
    What's that advantage over the save files hosted at places like wii-saves.com (or whatever the URL is) and similar?

    "Normal" saves for games like Elebits or Guitar Hero cant be copied from the Wii to an SD card. PowerSaves lets you copy those savegames to your Wii. Those saves also have 99999 of everything and things like that.

    Wow... Also if you decrypt them and use an SD-card? That's awesome!

    I can't find any reference to this anywhere on the net, newsgropus, torrents, etc. The only hit related is this thread right here. Even the WiiNewz page doesn't show on Google yet.

    Ah - wasn't aware that some saves were 'crippled' in such a fashion - thanks for the info.
    Will now get back to shooting the bejasus out of terrorists in Ghost Squad whilst awaiting the eventual release of this.

    Same here, there is a mention of it on a different forum, but that person probably just copy-pasted the release from here. Nothing else to be found.

    Fine then post the source. Oh wait,

    A. It probably isn't open source.
    B. Hardly anyone would have the general knowledge to compile it.

    As for Rawdump, is reading the disks the same as decrypting them?

    This might come in handy some day.
    Hopefully it will start circulating soon.

    Don't you need the powersave program to download the saves to begin with?
