    Greets to all GBAtemp members!

    I wanted to ask if there is a hack for preloader/priiloader that turns the blue disc drive light permanently on.

    I think that would be a quite cool feature, but I don't want to disassemble my Wii to solder any cables.


    Thx for your replies!

    Nope, there's no such hack

    Just mail your own wii and never open the message
    Your wii's address is w(wii friend code here)@wii.com

    Or do one of the multiple possibilities on the hardware side...

    There is absolutely no explanation of how this program works... Have you used it? and is it a matter of running the app from HBC/Banner Bomb and on it goes? Please give us some details of you have used it before. Thanks

    It's just an application where you can press A to turn the light on/off... It doesn't stay when you exit the app. It's a three lines of code application using libwiilight..

    This is all you need (patches a starlet register for the wii dvd light):
    Code:
    static vu32 *_wiilight_reg = (u32*)0xCD0000C0;
    void wiilight(int enable) {ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ 
    ÂÂÂÂu32 val = (*_wiilight_reg&~0x20);
    ÂÂÂÂif (enable && Settings.wiilight) val |= 0x20;
    ÂÂÂÂ*_wiilight_reg=val;
    }
    or only to set it on:

    Code:
    void WIILIGHT_TurnOn()
    {
    ÂÂÂÂ*(u32*)0xCD0000C0 |= 0x20;
    }

    So the question remains, is/has this been converted into a Preloader/PriiLoader hack? How hard would it be to do...

    No, because it turns off as soon as the application that executes that exits.

    exactly, it'll only work in system menu cause the some parts of memory gets reset (altho i dont think this will get reset) and most of the times when a dol gets loaded everything needs to be reinit...

    Thanks Daco, that's the answer I wanted to hear. I'm not that new to Wii Homebrew so I thought about this too but I wasn't sure. Now I know.
